To our valued patients,
We have resumed all fertility services.We remain committed to the fact that reproductive health care is an essential service and believe strongly that your fertility care is time sensitive. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) is NOT recommending that women avoid pregnancy during this pandemic. The risk of acquiring COVID-19 during pregnancy (to mother and or baby) is not known and will not be known for some time. While preliminary data on COVID-19 in pregnancy are reassuring, they are very limited.
Can I Receive The COVID 19 Vaccine?
Yes, it is recommended by ACOG (American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) and ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) that all patients seeking to become pregnant, or are pregnant, receive the COVID 19 vaccine. The second dose of the vaccine (if you are receiving Pfizer or Moderna) can cause a fever in some people. Please plan your transfer one week before or one week after you receive your second dose.
Please be mindful that we are taking all steps necessary to maintain social distancing and to keep everyone safe and healthy. Namely, we will be offering telehealth to all new and returning patients requiring consultation. We will be utilizing both the St. Paul and Minneapolis CRM offices to further space patient visits; we will ask you to come alone to appointments; you will be asked questions about your health before your appointment and at the time of check-in; you may need to wait in your car for your appointment; please maintain 6 feet from others while in the clinic; and wear a cloth or surgical mask.
Can I receive the Flu Vaccine?
Yes, you can receive the attenuated (dead) flu vaccine via intramuscular injection. Please do not receive the live nasal spray. The attenuated vaccine will not cause any harm to you or your fetus if pregnant.
