I always liked the Fourth of July. Warm summer nights, sitting on the grass with friends and family, maybe with a cold beer, the unmistakable sounds of the 1812 Overture and lots of fireworks.

Fertility rates throughout the world have fallen during the last decade, and scientists theorize that chemicals in everyday products, such as sunscreen, are contributing to the problem, particularly in men.

Surrogacy Questions

Surrogacy is an intense, expensive, emotional journey and we want all Intended Parents to feel as informed as possible about the process. We put together a questionnaire that we hope will be helpful to you.

Just as we are all recovering from Mother’s Day, the other Hallmark Holiday is fast approaching, just about a month away. While I find Mother’s Day to be the single most difficult day of the year for anyone struggling with infertility, Father’s Day is not exactly a breeze.

Egg Donation

A blog by The Egg Asiancy, June 14, 2016

A growing number of women are turning to mindfulness and meditation techniques to help them de-stress, relax and move through the infertility experience with more ease. I know from first hand experience the benefits of the mind body approach. I was blessed to have discovered this method and and have it work so successfully. I have seen this same result in other women and am confident in saying this can be a very useful tool for women who suffer from infertility, and the stress and anxiety that comes with it.

The statistics don’t lie; moderate weight loss does impact fertility. If you are struggling with ovulatory infertility, according to one study, losing 5% to 10% of your current weight is often enough to improve ovulation.1
This is especially helpful for women with PCOS, as weight loss can help to restore menstruation and ovulation.2

Excess weight can also affect men’s ability to conceive. One study suggested that overweight and obese men are more likely than their normal weight peers to produce lower numbers of sperm counts or no sperm at all.3

As the country prepares to honor servicemen and women who have given their lives, military members and veterans this Memorial Day, a veteran spending bill confirms good news for wounded soldiers and their families. A recently approved Senate bill includes a provision to allow the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to cover the costs of assisted reproductive technology, including IVF.
