Infertility is often associated with emotional and physical stress including, anxiety, depression, weight gain or weight loss, and may lead to marital discord. Secondary infertility is no exception. This too can cause the same feelings and reactions. Add to this an extra ‘level’ of emotion with another child in the picture, also being affected by infertility.

Failed IVF

a blog by Dr. John S. Rinehart Reproductive Medicine Institute- Chicago, March 7, 2013

Failure after IVF is devastating for many patients. A cycle of IVF requires work, effort, money, and most of all it engenders hope - hope for success that results in the delivery of a healthy, child. So, when IVF fails, it raises the question of why? Sometimes, there will be clear-cut reason but often there is no answer.

A recent article by Stranger JD & Yovich JL raises a very important issue that might assist patients in deciding if in vitro fertilization (IVF) is for them. The issue raised by the article is how to report pregnancy rates for an IVF cycle. Should the rate be calculated based upon just the fresh transfer of embryos or should it be the pregnancy rate based upon the total number of eggs retrieved from a cycle of IVF? (Reprod Biomed Online (2013) 27:286).

Many practices that surround Modern Medicine, and more specifically, the means of achieving a pregnancy, have evolved without scientific scrutiny. This is particularly true when the stakes become higher, as they do for individuals and couples undergoing Invitro Fertilization (IVF). Often times, individuals in the process of IVF may place undue emphasis on factors that have no effect upon their chances of conceiving, in an effort to exert a sense of control on an outcome that has eluded them. If they do not conceive, they resort to these erroneous conclusions as a cause, ultimately creating undue stress, and personal blame, for what is already a stressful situation.

Towards a Healthy Future: Pre-conception Genetic Testing in Chicago

A recently married young couple came to see us last year for an Infertility consult with concerns regarding Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, a rare autosomal dominant genetic disorder. Her husband was diagnosed since early childhood with VHL (inherited from his father who was affected with the same genetic mutations as him). The couple was concerned and trying to find out if In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) combined with Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), could give them solace and surety of a child without VHL syndrome. Our combined objective was to obtain and select a healthy embryo for transfer into her uterus without the VHL mutation which her husband was carrying.
