A blog by Embryo Adoption Awareness Center, June 30, 2015
Embryo adoption is a low-cost option to IVF and rather than making more embryos, you give life to embryos that another family is offering to you as a gift. This is a great choice, especially if your doctor is suggesting egg donation to create embryos for your IVF.

By the time most couples discover embryo adoption, they’ve spent years trying to conceive a baby naturally or through infertility treatments like in vitro fertilization. Many have even tried to have a baby through egg and sperm donation. Some embryo adoption programs have embryos waiting and are frequently able match an adopting family with a donor family within weeks rather than months or even years!

Recurrent miscarriage or pregnancy loss is defined as the loss of two or more pregnancies each up to 20 weeks gestation. These losses occur most commonly during the first trimester. There are many possible reasons for recurrent pregnancy loss; however a specific cause is not identified in approximately 50% of cases. While recurrent miscarriages can be emotionally devastating, there is still a great deal of hope for many couples.

Even though I had worked in the fertility field for over a decade before I found out that I too needed help to have a baby, I still was completely overwhelmed and frankly pretty devastated. But thankfully, IVF was my savior and now I've made it my mission to help others get through this crazy roller coaster ride we call infertility. Here are five things I did that helped me cope through my personal journey.

Diagnostic testing is done to identify the major causes of infertility based on their medical history. In about 10% of all cases, a couple (age less than 35 years old) will get a very unsatisfying result: Unexplained infertility. The diagnostic testing we have available will only identify the major reasons why a couple may have a difficult time getting pregnant but it certainly can not identify all of the reasons. If the fallopian tubes are blocked or there is no sperm, these are obvious major obstacles to becoming pregnant. There are no tests available for more subtle infertility factors such as inadequate egg quality or fertilization failure.

As specialists in reproductive endocrinology, we are often asked what steps a couple can take to best prepare them to conceive and carry a pregnancy to term. While taking these steps certainly does not guarantee conception or that a pregnancy can be carried full term, they will increase the chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy.

The two week wait following fertility treatment typically is a period filled with hope and fear, optimism and dread. The first week is sometimes easier, but by day 23, it is difficult to resist not buying that pregnancy test. I am often told by women that they are afraid to feel hopeful in the two week wait. I completely understand. It's an emotional roller-coaster.

It is widely known that as a woman’s age increases, her fertility declines, and as a result many couples are hesitant about embarking on the in vitro fertilization process. The journey can be challenging, expensive, and fraught with emotion. But as our technology has improved over the last several years, the impact of the mother’s age has become much less of an issue, though it certainly remains an important consideration.

What should you do when your infertility treatment should work but does not?

Here is a story of a patient of mine who had three healthy children and then suffered secondary infertility. She went to another local infertility clinic and failed five IVF procedures using her eggs and two egg donor IVF treatments. That made no sense to me.
