Why is Embryo Freezing Right for You?
Today we are discussing Embryo Freezing, which offers couples the option of delaying starting a family for medical or elective reasons, and involves the storing of an embryo or fertilized egg. It is achieved by stimulating the ovaries to produce viable eggs, retrieval of the eggs, fertilization in a lab, and finally the cryopreservation of viable embryos. The embryos are thawed and implanted when the patients are ready, with a high rate of success for giving birth to a healthy baby.

Egg Freezing: When is the Best Time for it?

What You Need to Know About Your Declining Egg Reserve
Delaying pregnancy until you’re in your 30’s, or even early 40’s, doesn’t automatically mean you won’t have success. Everyone’s biological clock works differently. However, you are more prone to low egg reserve as you age. Unfortunately, most women are not aware of their low reserve of eggs until they attempt pregnancy. In this episode, we talk about egg reserve at different stages of life. We also talk about egg quality and lifestyle changes you can do to increase your chances of pregnancy.

Failed IVF cycle? What to do next?
For those who have gone through IVF treatments the experience can feel overwhelming. It’s certainly, a big financial commitment but, also a huge investment of time, medications, and testing. Even with all of that, an IVF cycle doesn’t always result in pregnancy. In fact, some couples need to go through a series of cycles in order to finally achieve success.  In today's episode we will be discussing what a couple should do after they have a failed cycle. We also delve into some of the common reasons why an IVF cycle might fail and what options patients have to increase their odds for the second round.
