For Referring Providers

For Referring Healthcare Providers

 Thank you for trusting STL Fertility with your hopeful patient trying to get pregnant, trying to stay pregnant, or trying to build a family using third-party reproductive services like egg or sperm donation.

We’re happy to receive your patient with or without a comprehensive infertility work-up. If you prefer to perform the workup and have a question, connect with an STL Fertility provider, or use the educational information below.

Our goal at STL Fertility is to deliver your patient back to you as quickly, successfully, and safely as possible for routine obstetrical care. Our center offers a number of services and treatments under one roof like semen analysis (SA) and hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to make collaboration with our office as easy and efficient as possible. 

Collaboration Starts Here

Thank you for trusting us with your patient
