In Orthodox Jewish families, the female partner is not permitted to be intimate during menses and for 7 days after, only once the Mikvah (ritual purification bath) has occurred.
We are able to ensure couples undergoing intercourse cycles are able to be intimate after the Mikvah has occurred using medications to delay and stimulate ovulation.
For many Orthodox Jewish men, Jewish law dictates that traditional methods of sperm collection, such as masturbation, are not permitted.
Under the guidance of your rabbi, we offer a variety of solutions, such as non-spermicidal collection condoms, to help make the sperm collection process easier. We recognize the importance of ensuring your gametes (reproductive material) are safe and verified by employing multiple security measures, such as QR coding and photographic identification, and allowing the presence of a Masgicha (independent religious observer) for all procedures involving the handling of your gametes.
Jewish law prohibits many of the activities typically associated with fertility treatment such as traveling, document signing, and carrying of materials between locations from occurring on Shabbat.
Our experts are able to manipulate your cycle in a way to avoid procedures and diagnostic tests from occurring on the Sabbath.
Jewish law requires that certain guidelines be adhered to when the gametes of Jewish couples are manipulated within the laboratory (sperm analysis and wash, egg retrieval, embryo creation and transfer, etc.). We are committed to adhering to the highest laboratory standards as authorized by your rabbi and will accommodate the use of a Masgicha when requested.
