Endometriosis Does Not Increase Aneuploidy Risk

A recently published study determined that endometriosis does not lead to increased aneuploidy in embryos. Researchers at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ) took a retrospective look at patients who had their first IVF cycle with comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) and had surgical or ultrasound diagnosed evidence of endometriosis. More than 1,000 blastocysts produced by 253 patients with endometriosis were compared, by age, to general IVF patients undergoing CCS. The rate of aneuploidy was equivalent compared to their age matched controls, says Dr. Marie Werner, a reproductive endocrinologist with RMANJ, and a researcher in this study.

Paying for Fertility Treatment in Northern New Jersey

Caffeine consumption is a common concern amongst women who are trying to conceive or are newly pregnant.

December 2012

“Adrienne is one of the most compassionate and helpful people I'd worked with during my infertility journey. Not only did she take the time to respond to my calls and emails while I was her patient, but even more recently when I'm feeling very blessed for my twins and send a little update or hello, she still responds. It is obvious that Adrienne really loves her job. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with her during such a fragile time in my life.” – Former IVF patient

Should You Freeze Your Eggs Before You Have Your Fibroids Removed?

a blog by Serena H. Chen, M.D., IRMS Reproductive Medicine at Saint Barnabas, December 7, 2012

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine has just declared that freezing your eggs prior to egg-destroying cancer treatments is no longer considered experimental. However, they did not recommend that all women bank eggs for the future in case the right time to have a baby happens after their eggs are too old.

As a fertility specialist who uses frozen eggs on a regular basis to help women conceive, I recommend that some women with fibroids should consider freezing their eggs before they have their fibroids removed (myomectomy). Fibroids are very common in women in their child-bearing years. They can affect up to 30% or more of women in this age group. Many fibroids do not cause problems, but when they do, they can profoundly affect a woman’s health and her chances of having children.
