Welcome to Fertility Treatment Center

Fertility Treatment Center (“FTC”) is a state-of-the-art infertility treatment and reproductive medicine practice in Tempe, AZ. Founded in 1990, by H. Randall Craig, MD, FACOG, we’re well known among patients and physicians for our extremely high success rates in infertility diagnosis and treatment, and for our caring, compassionate, and personalized approach. We know you want to conceive more than anything in the world and it is our mission to help you reach your dream of pregnancy.

We started our practice twenty-five years ago with one doctor, one nurse, and one simple goal in mind:

To provide our patients with personalized, high-quality and complete infertility care in a compassionate and supportive setting. While infertility treatments have changed over the years, our original commitment to providing you with the best possible care hasn’t, with the expertise of Dr. Jun Tao, our Senior Embryologist, we have been achieving some of the highest IVF and Frozen Embryo Transfer pregnancy rates in the country. Dr. Tao is the only embryologist in Arizona with an MD and PhD degree, and he utilizes his own patented fertility devices to maintain these extremely high success rates, a major advantage of our program. In fact, it’s helped us grow into one of the largest fertility treatment centers in the Southwestern United States, currently with over 30 employees to better serve you. We’ve successfully diagnosed and treated tens of thousands of patients from the greater Phoenix area, across the United States and in countries worldwide.

Our Philosophy

We believe your infertility treatment should be as straightforward, and as uncomplicated as possible. We’ve seen thousands of patients over the years and have found that the most effective infertility treatment is often the simplest solution. Many of our patients have successfully conceived after receiving a minimally invasive solution. Of course, that’s not to say more high-tech treatments and state-of-the-art technology don’t have a place in our practice.

Our physicians, clinicians and laboratory staff are all thoroughly trained in advanced, sub-specialty reproductive techniques including in vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine insemination (IUI), and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). We know your fertility challenges are uniquely yours. You can be sure we’ll work hard to find the most appropriate solution for your needs.

Our Experience

Our Founder and Medical Director, H. Randall Craig, MD, FACOG, has over 26 years of experience, and is board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. FTC’s IVF and Andrology Laboratory Director, Jun Tao, PhD, HCLD, has over 20 years of experience, and is board certified in bioanalysis. Our fertility specialists don’t just practice medicine; they are at the forefront of improving and developing new infertility and reproductive treatments to help people like you conceive. Drs. Craig and Tao publish several scientific papers each year, and Dr. Craig holds 25 medical patents to his name! What’s more, our frozen egg IVF program is the only program in Arizona to have resulted in a pregnancy. In addition to our incredible experience, we’ve worked hard to build solid relationships with fertility programs worldwide, offering you unparalleled access to other fertility solutions.

Our Commitment To Research & Development

We have developed an expert team of physicians and researchers to answer specific questions about new infertility medications by providing our patients with additional treatment options through clinical research trials. Conducting trials in partnership with Physician’s Research Group (“PRG”) provides our patients access to cutting-edge fertility therapies and maintains our position at the forefront of medical research and discovery. Visit our Research section to see current ongoing trials including free PGD, 90% free in vitro fertilization, and more.  Learn More…

Taking care of yourself before and during fertility treatment is important

As hopeful mothers to be, we often forget that we need to make sure that we too, are a priority. Family, work responsibilities and other realities of “life” often take first precedence, so making time to take care of our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing is paramount. Making positive changes to your diet, exercise habits and sleep habits, while devoting some time to enjoyable activities such as hobbies, and social outings, can help ensure you live a more balance life, which can ultimately lead to less stress. Taking some extra time for yourself to relax, and manage stress levels can actually be extremely helpful when dealing with issues related to infertility. Since stress can have a negative impact on fertility, leading a less stressful life, may, in some ways be helpful when trying to achieve a successful pregnancy.

Where to draw the line with friends and family.....

While your struggle with infertility is personal and private in nature, it is sometimes difficult to “draw the line” when it comes to sharing information about your fertility issues with family, friends and loved ones.

Because the stress we put on ourselves while trying to conceive can be significant, and since stress has been shown to impact fertility, it’s important to keep unnecessary stress at bay. Which for many of us means setting some boundaries— early on, about just exactly what type of information and how much information about your personal journey you are comfortable sharing…and with who.

Drawing these more definitive “lines in the sand” can help to significantly reduce your stress levels during the entire fertility treatment process. Also, limiting the type of information you share, especially through social media can help to ensure that you insulate yourself from well meaning people inquiring about your treatment, which may lead to conversations that you may not want to have at a particular time…which (you guessed it) can lead to more stress that those struggling with fertility issues and/or going through fertility treatment, simply don’t need.

When to see a fertility doctor

Sometimes getting pregnant takes time. Your friends and family tell you to “relax,” “be patient” and “enjoy trying.” But when all of your friends are happily celebrating their pregnancies and you are looking at a negative pregnancy test (again), it may be time to take things to the next step.

Answer the following questions to see if you should book an appointment with an infertility specialist:

1) Have you been having regular, unprotected intercourse for over a year with no success?
2) If you are over 35, have you been trying for 6 months? A woman’s fertility decreases steadily after age 35.
3) Are your periods irregular? If your periods aren’t regular (every 25 to 35 days) it can signal ovulation problems.
4) Have you had more than 3 miscarriages?
5) Do you or your partner have a history of infertility or infertility-causing diseases?
6) Did your mother take diethylstilbestrol (DES) when she was pregnant with you? This synthetic form of estrogen has been linked to infertility.
7) Have you been treated for cancer? Some but not all cancers and their treatments can affect your ability to get pregnant.

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, make the call.

The good news is many infertility issues can be overcome with today’s treatments and technologies. A fertility specialist can give you your best chance at a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.

Signs of Infertility

Not pregnant yet? Wondering if it could be due to infertility? Are you at risk? Is your partner? Is it time to see a fertility specialist?

Trying to conceive can be stressful when things don’t go according to plan. Pregnancy is a result of a number of complicated physiological processes (and psychological ones, too!). If you haven’t gotten pregnant as quickly as you had hoped, the checklists below can help determine if infertility might be a factor.

Am I infertile?

Some common things that can impact fertility in women are:
1) Irregular periods (the most common cause)
2) Being over 35 (fertility begins dropping rapidly after this age)
3) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which affects ovulation
4) Uterine fibroids
5) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
6) Scar tissue/adhesions that block the Fallopian tubes.
7) Cancer treatment, such as certain chemotherapy medications

Common causes of infertility in men are:
1) Being over 40
2) Immune system disorders
3) Being under- or overweight
4) Untreated sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and UTIs

It is important to note that not everyone who has the risk factors above will experience infertility, and many causes of infertility are treatable.
