Patient Update - July 6th, 2021

Posted on July 6, 2021 by Inception Fertility

Dear PFC Patients,

We are excited about California re-opening and in light of the new public health order effective June 15th in California, we wanted to share some updates regarding PFC’s COVID policies.

We are currently recommending the following guidelines regarding vaccinations:

January 18th statement from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM)

  • Available data indicate that COVID-19 vaccines do not cause infertility in women or men.
  • In the randomized blinded Pfizer-BioNTech trial, a similar number of women conceived after receiving the vaccine as those who received the placebo.
  • COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for women who are contemplating pregnancy or who are pregnant in order to minimize risks to themselves and their pregnancy.

July 2nd guidelines from American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG)

  • Importantly, claims linking COVID-19 vaccines to infertility are unfounded and have no scientific evidence supporting them. ACOG recommends vaccination for all eligible people who may consider future pregnancy.

Our San Francisco and Marin locations are open and continue to provide treatment safely

Onsite Safety Protocol Updates

We have made extensive changes to our safety protocols to ensure that our patients and staff remain safe while receiving treatment at PFC.

The most noticeable changes to our facility are:

Face Masks

We require that all of our patients please wear face protection at all times while visiting our clinic. We also recommend wearing face protection on your travel to and from the clinic. Cloth masks are acceptable but we request you do not wear a mask with valves. If you are given a mask at PFC, please use this mask for all future visits.

Guest Policy

We are now excited to allow partners into some visits at PFC. Please connect with your care team for any questions or more information.
