"I Feel Extremely Blessed to Have Found Dr. K and Her Staff" 5-star Google Reviews
Dr K and her entire staff are a GOD SEND! I worked with Blanca and Mayra and they are both angels. I’ve had two miscarriages back to back and when i came to see Dr K i was extremely distraught and just wanted to find out what was wrong with me. She worked very closely with me to find out the root cause of my miscarriages. We ended up doing a medicated cycle and it worked the first round and in currently 7 weeks pregnant and have just graduated from her office to my regular OB’s. I feel extremely blessed to have found Dr K and her staff. I pray anyone reading this has the courage to seek help and treatment because it’s worth it!!! Thanks you Dr k! Thank you Blanca! Thank you Mayra! May god always bless you and your families.
We had such a great experience with Houston Fertility Center! After trying to grow our family for 2.5 years without any luck we finally decided to try a fertility treatment. I had so much anxiety going into this whole process but everyone there was so great to work with. The nurses, Mayra and Blanca were so kind and answered all my questions everytime I went in and Dr. Kristiansen was just so great. She has such a calmness about her and made me feel so comfortable through the entire process. Even Melissa who answers the phone and gets you checked in was sweet! We ended up trying Invocell and it worked on the first time, we are now expecting twins! We can’t thank them enough for everything! I truly felt like they cared about me each time I went in! I will miss seeing these sweet ladies as my visits are now with my OBGYN. I would highly recommend them for your fertility needs!
Treatment Options for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
For hormone imbalances, we may recommend hormone therapy. A simple change in medication can address various issues or stimulate the ovaries to produce additional eggs. For example, if a woman has low progesterone, we may recommend that she take a progesterone supplement. Some women may also wonder if anticoagulant drugs such as heparin are appropriate if pregnancy loss is recurrent. We can discuss heparin and other options during a consultation at our practice serving Houston and Sugar Land.
For patients with genetic or chromosomal disorders, we may recommend in vitro fertilization (IVF) in combination with pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT). Using PGT, our embryologist can locate the healthiest embryos before they are transferred to the uterus.
If you have PCOS, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids, a surgical procedure can address the condition and provide a healthy environment for the embryo. In many cases, an outpatient surgical procedure or other treatment can greatly improve your chances for a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery.
