Your Fertility Appointment Today to Start Your Family Tomorrow
Dr. John Norian, HRC Fertility: I bring it up to everyone. I bring it up to everyone for a few different reasons. Number one, it gives me as a clinician more information about my patient’s egg, sperm, embryo interaction and development.
So, I just know more. And I can help them understand their biology and their fertility that bit more.
Number two, with these tools, we’re allowed to put back just a single embryo and maintain such a beautifully high pregnancy rate.
And delivering a single embryo, having a single pregnancy, is really where our field is going. It’s safer for mom, safer for baby, safer for fathers.
The other group who I bring it up to are women who are becoming at-risk for chromosomal errors, meaning that as time goes on the remaining eggs are just not the same quality.
So, particularly when women get over the ages of 35, 36, 37, things like rates of Down Syndrome, chromosomal mismatch, or the medical word is aneuploidy, those rates increase incrementally.
We think the sweet spot for human fertility is probably a woman between the ages of 25 and 32, as far as having the lowest chromosomal mismatch.
But those are the people I bring it up to.
The reason why I bring it up to everyone is so we can put back fewer embryos and maintain higher healthy pregnancy rates.
