I am 33 and my husband is 34 with no known fertility probs. We are extremely busy with our careers and are contemplating doing IVF now to "save" some embryos now (we don't plan on having kids for at least 3-4 years). We look at it as an insurance policy, but still hope we may conceive naturally.

Would mini-IVF be sufficient for this or is regular IVF the best option? Also, do you use vitrification to freeze the embryos? Does this seem to lead to better success with frozen embryo transfers?

Thanks, Teresa

Hello TeresaS - The biggest benefit with this process is in numbers...thus, the more embryos you freeze today the better your chance will be in the future. So, conventional IVF would definitely be your preferred route. We do use vitrification, and this really does provide for a more robust recuperation of the embryos.

Hope this helps,
David Tourgeman, MD
