Good afternoon

My husband and I have been trying for a baby for a while. We have one daughter, aged 6 yrs. Our reasons for IVF gender selection are as follows:
1. Our daughter was born with a rare condition called primary hypersplenism of which there is no know cause.
2. My husbands sperm count is poor, morphology poor, motility poor
3. I have PCOS
4. My husband has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer with ? metastatic growth in the pelvis and 2 ribs. He may need radiotherapy or chemo. He is 43.
5. I do not want to have a boy and pass this cancer on or possibly pass on another ? genetic condition which our daughter had (if it is genetic, I fear it may present as worse).

How much would it cost for storage?

Dear Fiona:

I am sorry to hear of your husband's problems.
I am not sure what you are asking, regarding costs of storage. Are you referring to storing sperm or embryos?

Since time is of the essence for you, please consider calling 818-788-7288 to arrange a phone or Skype consult with me to discuss your options and the associated costs. If you have a specific question, please contact me at
