Women run out of 90% of their eggs by age 30 – What should we learn from this study?

Feb 04, 2010 | Infertility News
There’s been much media attention surrounding a recent study out of the UK. The article suggests that women run out of 90% of their eggs by age 30. This doesn’t mean that women over 30 can’t get pregnant. It means that women over 30 can face challenges getting pregnant because they have run out of good quality eggs.

The newest breakthrough to improve IVF pregnancy rates?

Jan 18, 2010 | Infertility News
Researchers at University of Michigan (where I did my infertility training) have shown that gently rocking embryos while they grow before an embryo transfer could possibly improve pregnancy rates. They used a device that mimics the motion that embryos experience naturally as they travel down the fallopian tube into the uterus.

What you should know about your IVF Cycle

If you’ve gone through an IVF cycle and didn’t get pregnant, this is what you should know. First of all, it’s not your fault.

It doesn’t mean that you aren’t compatible with your partner. The truth is that much of what goes into whether you get pregnant or not from any given fertility treatment cycle, especially IVF, has to do with probability and chance.  Depending on your age or situation, you may have a fifty percent chance of getting pregnant. This means that fifty percent of patients won’t get pregnant. This doesn’t mean you should stop trying. Paying for fertility treatments is not easy. There are some states that require employers to pay for up to 6 IVF cycles. You really get IVF for free in some States. Patients are more likely to do several cycles before getting pregnant when they have IVF coverage compared to those who don’t because patients with coverage don’t feel the financial strain on top of the emotional strain when they hear negative results....
