Tri-State Doctor Among First in the Nation to Perform Hybrid IVF
For religious or moral issues, some couples who have trouble getting pregnant do not want to try some forms of fertility treatment, because it goes against their beliefs. A few fertility doctors across the nation, such as Dr. Michael Thomas at the UC Center For Reproductive Health, are trying a new, hybrid method that does not involve frozen embryos, and for some, it's working. One couple did a stimulated IVF cycle, but only a few eggs were fertilized to try and create two or three embryos. The rest of the eggs are frozen instead of freezing embryos.
