University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine Colorado Springs

CU ARM is a large, experienced and comprehensively skilled team of experts, committed to meeting our patients’ unique fertility needs. We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of infertility and reproductive disorders.

University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine (CU ARM) is driven by finding the right solution for every patient. Our goal is to provide personalized care to each person or couple. Our reward is helping our patients achieve their family goals. Since many assisted reproductive treatments are not covered by insurance, our patients often pay for medical services out of pocket. This is part of the reason we are committed to making our care as affordable as possible by eliminating extra costs and being fully price transparent. Infertility is an arduous journey, and we understand the wide array of emotions that this struggle can bring. We strive to support our patients’ well-being by offering fertility counseling resources and stress-relieving treatments, such as acupuncture. We also believe that finding the right fertility treatment is a very personal decision. Our clinicians use their expertise to educate and guide, rather than dictate, so our patients can navigate their fertility treatment options with confidence.

Men and Infertility

A survey of 1,000 men over the age of 18 found that almost half of the respondents declared they were either unaware of or unconcerned about their fertility health. Infertility has long been thought of as primarily a female issue outside medical circles. Yet both male and female factor fertility issues contribute to around one-third of all infertility cases each.
