Reducing Risk of COVID-19 Exposure
The staff at Baystate Reproductive Medicine is concerned for your health and safety during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are currently experiencing. We are following the guidance below from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) regarding fertility testing and treatment to reduce you and your family’s risk of exposure to this potentially severe illness.
Please feel free to contact our office if you have questions. We will continue to review these guidelines so we can resume providing you with compassionate, personalized infertility care as soon as possible.
ASRM's new guidance calls for suspension of most treatments
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the global leader in reproductive medicine, today issues new guidance for its members as they manage patients in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Developed by an expert Task Force, of physicians, embryologists, and mental health professionals, the new document recommends suspension of new, non-urgent treatments.
Specifically, the recommendations include:
- Suspension of initiation of new treatment cycles, including ovulation induction, intrauterine inseminations (IUIs), in vitro fertilization (IVF) including retrievals and frozen embryo transfers, and non-urgent gamete cryopreservation.
- Strongly consider cancellation of all embryo transfers, whether fresh or frozen.
- Continue to care for patients who are currently ‘in-cycle’ or who require urgent stimulation and cryopreservation.
- Suspend elective surgeries and non-urgent diagnostic procedures.
- Minimize in-person interactions and increase utilization of telehealth.
