Egg Regeneration - Is It Possible?

It has long been accepted that the number of eggs available for reproduction is fixed prior to birth.  However, a recent well conducted study suggests that reproductive aged women have oocyte stem cells which can be isolated, cultured in the laboratory, and returned to ovarian tissue resulting in healthy egg development.  While this research preliminary, it opens up exciting possibilities for treating age related infertility.

Improving Embryo Quality!

Improving embryo quality is one of the keys to improving IVF live birth rates.  A recent study suggests that slight mechanical movement of embryos during culturing leads to a greater number of high quality embryos.  Significantly more blastocysts developed when embryo culture dishes were gently tilted during culture for 5 days compared to a control group.

IVF represents the most successful treatment available for infertile couples.  While not every infertile couple needs to have IVF in order to achieve success, for many couples it represents their best prospects for having a child, and for some couples it is the only pathway to a family of their own.  Very often, high costs and lack of insurance coverage make treatment inaccessible.

What Is The Best Infertility Treatment For Women 40 And Older?

Because fertility decreases with advancing age it is imperative that the most effective therapies be offered to couples as early in the treatment process as possible.  Physicians who care for infertile couples must make the most of each month to assure that fertility potential is maximized.  Toward this end, data evaluating age specific expectation for successful pregnancy for the various commonly used treatments is essential.  An article in press at this time suggests that in-vitro fertilization is far superior to ovarian stimulation combined with intrauterine insemination.  Live birth rates in this study were more than five times greater for IVF versus ovarian stimulation with intrauterine insemination. 

Improving IVF Success!

There have been several publications in recent years suggesting that minor trauma to the uterine lining in the menstrual cycle preceding an IVF treatment cycle results in a significant improvement in embryo implantation.  A recent study suggests that obtaining a biopsy from a precise location within the uterine cavity during the IVF treatment cycle significantly improved the prospect of embryo implantation. This study is the first to indicate that location and timing of the biopsy may impact favorably the chances for pregnancy in patients who have had repeated failure of healthy appearing embryos to implant.
