A little more info…


The cost of the program is about 1.5-2x the fee for a single IVF cycle. The idea is that if you end up getting pregnant the first time, you will have paid a bit more than you needed to. A small price to pay for having a baby and enjoying the peace of mind that you were able to afford treatment for your baby.

Patients that need two IVF treatment will enjoy some savings compared to purchasing two individual IVF cycles. Patients that need three or more treatments can move forward with the confidence that you saved a lot! These families know that they have access to all the care that they need without worries about expenses.

Reach out to schedule a Mate Advisor Session to learn more about the unique approach we take to fertility care. We look forward to caring for you.

Dr. Steinleitner has gotten over 4,000 patients pregnant…and we can’t wait to help you next.

What are fertility treatment costs in San Luis Obispo?

We selectively collaborate with fertility clinics that align with our core values, particularly in terms of accessibility and affordability.

Dr. Steinleitner shares these principles and has consistently prioritized making his services as accessible as possible.

What fertility services are offered near San Luis Obispo?

Nestled in San Luis Obispo, our fertility clinic is a hub of comprehensive services designed to cater to your unique needs. Our repertoire spans a variety of offerings, from fertility assessments that encompass an initial consult with your physician and all necessary pre-treatment tests, to IUI, IVF, PGT-A (genetic screening), donor sperm, donor eggs, surrogacy, and egg freezing. We proudly serve all families, individuals, and couples, embodying our commitment to inclusivity.

Do we offer IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) near San Luis Obispo?

Certainly! In-vitro fertilization (IVF) is widely regarded as the pinnacle of infertility treatment. When you undergo IVF, the initial 8-12 days involve a stimulation phase. During this period, you’ll be prescribed a mix of medications, including some injectables. These medications encourage your ovaries to produce a higher number of eggs.

As your eggs reach peak maturity, a trigger shot is administered. Approximately 36 hours later, you’ll have an egg retrieval procedure. This is a painless process, as you’ll be under anesthesia. Your physician will gather as many eggs as possible during this stage. These eggs are then fertilized with sperm by our embryologist. After around 5-6 days, we closely monitor the embryos for health and maturity before proceeding to freeze them.

The journey continues with the transfer of a single embryo into your uterus, followed by a pregnancy test conducted at our clinic two weeks later. This comprehensive approach reflects our unwavering commitment to achieving optimal outcomes during your fertility journey.

How many offices are part of the SLO REI network?

We currently have two clinics within our Mate Fertility network, and we’re actively working to expand this number. Our existing clinics are conveniently located in San Luis Obispo and Fresno. This strategic placement enables us to offer our top-notch care to the Central California region. We’re excited about the prospect of supporting numerous families in achieving their aspirations of parenthood!
