How To Give Yourself a 100% IVF Pregnancy Rate

Jun 21, 2018 | Fertility Care
It’s a funny idea, I know. Because I’m sure no fertility clinic that you’ve ever talked to claims to have a 100% IVF pregnancy rate. But that’s actually the point: A 100% IVF rate doesn’t exist! There are, however, many steps you can take before you start IVF to increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby. The most important fact to know about human eggs is that the age of your eggs has everything to do with your pregnancy rate Step One: Become A Cat, Dog or Bunny! Yes, another joke! Every day 10,000 humans are born in the United States, 70,000 kittens and puppies are born, and, get this, bunnies can give birth up to twelve times a year! That’s because, unlike humans, bunnies don’t have a menstrual cycle. There’s no special window in which a pregnancy needs to happen. In fact, they are spontaneous ovulators, which means that intercourse actually stimulates ovulation. After 40 seconds of magic, an egg releases. Plan! Plan! Plan! Unfortunately, humans don’t reproduce as efficiently as bunnies, so planning is vital. Often this involves freezing eggs or embryos before you decide to get pregnant (Read about: Why I Throw Egg Freezing Parties)....

How to Create Your Own Personalized IVF Plan

Jun 15, 2018 | Fertility Care
Have you ever used Google Maps and been redirected midway via a better route? Alternatively, maybe you’re proactive in managing traffic and go directly to Waze to get you from point A to point B in the most time effective way? These apps are well-loved and widely used because they remove obstacles out of an otherwise potentially painful process, and they do so with data. I bring the beauty of Google Maps into my fertility care by serving as a personal navigator for every one of my patient’s IVF care and talked about it here. We tell these apps where we want to go, they determine our starting point and formulate a plan. It’s not a one-size fits-all-route; it is customized and updated in real-time to avoid the proverbial bumps along the way. I would get lost daily without this personalized navigation. Personalized Navigation for Fertility I bring the beauty of Google Maps into my fertility care by serving as a personal navigator for every one of my patient’s IVF care. It’s the approach required for every IVF patient to have their best chance at getting to their point B, which is a healthy pregnancy. To be clear, I’m in no...

Jun 07, 2018 | Fertility Care
                                         Dr. Aimee interviews Dr. Alice Domar, Executive Director of the Domar Center for Mind Body Healthy Just being pregnant can put your anxiety circuits into overdrive—even if you haven’t had any fertility issues or faced a pregnancy loss. Everything in your world is changing, including your body, your relationships with other people, and drum roll, please, your entire future! Yes, its true, but it’s also an amazing and wonderful passage to embrace. I also know that for women who have faced a pregnancy loss or infertility that pregnancy, especially the first trimester, can be really really challenging. That’s why I recently sat down with Dr. Alice Domar, a cognitive behavior psychologist and a pioneer in the field of Mind/Body medicine. As executive director of the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health at Boston IVF, and an associate professor at Harvard Medical School, she conducts on-going ground-breaking research which focuses on the relationship between stress and infertility. Her new book is called Finding Calm for the Expectant Mom. It’s about how to find ways to counteract stress, put your anxieties into perspective, and bring peace...
