Infertility diagnosis/treatment

The causes of infertility are multiple and are often difficult to define but may include anatomical conditions involving tubal patency and/or function as well as diseases of the testicles and/or or sperm ducts, dysfunctional levels of certain hormones in both men and women, and ovulation difficulties in women.

Recurrent miscarriage diagnosis/treatment

The time has come to embrace the reality that the term “unexplained” is rarely applicable to 1) infertility of unknown cause, 2) repeated IVF failure, and 3) recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). More often than not, rather than being “unexplained,” the condition is simply ignored and as such remains “undiagnosed.” All that is needed is to investigate and treat the issue appropriately in order to solve the problem.

Egg freezing for future fertility

There are many reasons why patients may need to preserve their fertility. For some, it may be a focus on education and career delays and for others it may be due to an illness. Although the decline in reproductive potential that occurs with age cannot be reversed, freezing your eggs at a younger age may allow the eggs to be preserved until you are ready to conceive. While there are no guarantees, using cryopreserved eggs may improve your chances for pregnancy in the future.

Hello! I hope i will hear back from you.
I was 24 years old during my first ivf. We’ve retrieved 11 oocyte and all of them were immature.
During second ivf 6 oocyte
3rd ivf, (long protocol) retrieved 9 oocyte, one of them was meios 2 but we have not received embryos. I always have liquid in duglas pouch. Doctor said that, this situation is because of endometriosis. Could you give me any advices please?

Answer:

I respectfully differ. In my opinion, unless you still have sizable endometriotic cysts (endometriomas) in your ovaries or you have  significantly reduced ovarian reserve, I doubt that the endometriosis itself explains your poor egg/embryo quality. Given your young age, I suspect that the protocol used for ovarian stimulation needs to be reviewed and likey, be revised. However, we would need to dig deeper and that would require tghat we talk.. Might I suggest that you call y assistant, Patti Converse (702-533-2691) and set up an online consultation with me.w).

Embarking on the journey of IVF often raises questions about the likelihood of success and the quality of embryos. While it’s challenging to predict outcomes due to various actors, there’s hope and information to guide you. Firstly, the key to fertilization potential lies in the chromosomal integrity of the egg. Women in their twenties or early thirties have a higher chance of having eggs with the required number of chromosomes for a healthy pregnancy. However, as age advances, this percentage decreases, emphasizing the importance of timely decisions.

 Secondly, embryos that don’t develop into blastocysts are usually chromosomally abnormal and are not suitable for transfer, as they may lead to implantation issues or miscarriages. Not all blastocysts are guaranteed to be chromosomally normal, and this likelihood decreases with the age of the woman. Understanding this helps set realistic expectations.

While species and genetic factors play a role in egg quality, our choice of a controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) protocol also matters. Selecting the right COS protocol is crucial, especially for older women, those with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), and those with polycystic ovarian syndrome. An individualized approach to optimize follicle growth and egg quality can significantly impact IVF outcomes.

In a natural ovulation cycle, hormonal changes are finely tuned to support healthy follicle development and egg maturation. When undergoing IVF, it’s essential to avoid disrupting this delicate balance. The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) “trigger shot” should be carefully timed to enhance the chances of success.

 

In summary, understanding the influence of age, genetics, and COS protocols on egg quality is crucial for a successful IVF journey. The decision-making process becomes even more critical for older women or those facing specific fertility challenges. By embracing personalized approaches and staying informed, you can navigate the path of IVF with hope and optimism.

Our Team

The emphasis we put on innovative, state-of-the-art technology began with our founder, Dr. Geoffrey Sher, one of the pioneers in the field of IVF, who has been influential in the births of more than 17,000 IVF babies. Dr. Sher plays an active role alongside our medical director, Dr. Drew Tortoriello. Together they have over 55 years of clinical and academic experience in the field of Reproductive Medicine.

Together, they were the first to introduce Preimplantation Genetic Testing which vastly increases the chances of IVF success and is now performed worldwide. They also pioneered the testing and treatment of Immunologic Implantation Dysfunction (IID) that frequently leads to “unexplained” infertility, repeated IVF failure, and recurrent miscarriage. We’re able to conduct a variety of other treatments and tests right on site. For example, we offer on-site sperm testing to ensure proper sperm selection techniques are used to create the healthiest possible embryos.

For those women seeking to preserve their fertility, we offer vitrification, a state-of-the-art technology that ensures their eggs will ultimately be thawed successfully.
