Concerns about gender selection

HI I am from China and prepare to do gender selection for family balancing. I am 28 years old now and I heard that for gender selection to succeed you will need to take many of my eggs to find de desired gender, this includes the use of hormones to speed up the production of eggs, can this be harmful to my body? Will it make me look older and will it cause disease like breast cancer? thank y...

Can I do an IFV

I am 44. I failed my IVF at age of 42. I tried an IUI at age of 43. I gave up after that. But a friend of mine who is 45 now, a year older than me, after numerous attempts had her first baby with IVF a year ago, she just found out that she is pregnant again, without trying or planning for the second child. This started me again. I have no known medical issues whatsoever that prevents me from getti...

44 Years old - PGD

Hello - I am 44 years old and trying to have baby number #2. I have had 3 miscarriages in the past 2 years. The most recent being last month at 8.5 weeks due to trisomy 15. My AMH is 1.36, My FSH is 8.8, my most recent antral follicle count was 9. It seems that I just have old eggs. My question is: would it be worthwhile to try IVF with PGD (CGH)? Or is it just throwing money away at this point? I...

Frozen embryos

Hi, I am 44 years old and am planning on doing IVF with PGD and a frozen transfer. I noticed your clinic has very high success rates for women over 42 in frozen cycles. My questions is: Are these embryos that were retrieved and frozen earlier, when the women were younger? Or are they actually embryos retrieved when the women were over 42? Is the high pregnancy rate due to the pgs and good freezin...

Non-Surgical Alternatives for Men Desiring Children Following a Vasectomy

I am doing my research on the above topic and came across this article by Michael Feinman, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. My husband is 52 and had his vasectomy 13 years ago and had it reversed 4 years ago. After the reversal they said it was a success, but once we started trying to conceive (about a year later) we were challenged and learned that he had a zero sperm count. The doctor who preformed the revers...

Long Follicular Phase

Hello. I am 37 (almost 38). I had a missed miscarriage in August 2013. Since then, I have been charting and I realized that I have a long follicular phase. I ovulate on day 20, my luteal phase is 12 days. I have read that a long follicular phase can contribute to miscarriages, chromosomal abnormalities, and infertility. I think this may be why I had a miscarriage. Is there anything that I can do a...

IVF without needles

Hello, my wife has a phobia to needles, where she actually tears up thinking about it. There is no chance she can give herself a shot and she travels a good amount for work. She has ruled out even having someone else give her the shots as it is a real issue for her. Are there any new ways of administering the hormones without needles? I am reading about many new ways of administering immun...
