IVF Programs for the Armed Forces

IVF Programs for the Armed Forces

In early 2009, the San Diego Fertility Center (SDFC) was selected to provide off-site embryology laboratory services to the San Diego Naval Medical Center’s Infertility Program.  Because San Diego is home to many military personnel, we are honored to be able to help these patients achieve their dreams of having a family.

The SDFC military IVF program is one of very few in the country, and therefore the selection criteria for providing embryology lab services was very rigid.  SDFC was chosen based on its 20-year history of excellent pregnancy success rates, which have exceeded all national averages, and our state-of-the-art laboratory.  Since the beginning of our partnership with the Naval Medical Center, our cumulative initial pregnancy rate for these patients is 75% for IVF and 86% for FET.  We are very excited and proud to offer this degree of success to patients in the military!  Click here to see our 2012 pregnancy success rates.


SDFC’s embryology laboratory is nationally certified and operates year round.   It is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), which certifies that our lab is one of an exclusive group of reproductive labs in the United States that meets the highest standards of excellence, as recognized by its peers.  Our expert embryologists have many years of experience, and are highly skilled and trained in oocyte/embryo culture, insemination (including ICSI), blastocyst culture and transfer, embryo cryopreservation, and laser assisted hatching.  Further, SDFC’s embryology lab was the first in San Diego County to achieve a pregnancy from blastocyst culture and the first to offer preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).  Our embryology team is lead by Bill Venier, the only Embryology Laboratory Director in San Diego with a graduate degree specifically in Human Embryology.

Patients who qualify for the Naval Medical Center’s IVF program can choose to have SDFC provide the off-site embryology lab services, and therefore benefit from our experienced, top quality laboratory and IVF team.  We also offer discounts to patients in the Armed Forces who prefer to use SDFC for all of their IVF services.

Military Patient Testimonials

“After 3 1/2 years of actively trying to get pregnant my husband and I began to believe adoption would be our only chance at being parents; until one day our fertility doctor told us about IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). Being new to this whole experience we knew that choosing the right fertility center would be key to making our story a success. After weeks of careful consideration we chose, San Diego Fertility Center, we knew we selected the right place immediately; the entire staff was, friendly, compassionate, knowledgable, willing to help in any way possible, but most importantly they made the process EASY. My husband and I would absolutely recommend San Diego Fertility Center to anyone seeking fertility assistance. They allowed our dream of becomming parents a reality, without their help none of this would have been possible. Thank you San Diego Fertility Center!”

What caused you to seek services at SDFC? 
“It is one of our 2 choices from the military - I chose SDFC because it was faster to get in and be seen, less expensive, and more convenient.  Plus, the doctors seem fabulous!”
