California Couple Has Two Sets of Twins with IUI and IVF at West Coast Fertility

www.ivfbaby.com The journey through infertility treatment can be long and disappointing. Still, couples continue to carry on with high hopes that next time will be the one. We would like to share a story with you today about a couple that persevered and were able to overcome their obstacles. This lucky couple are parents to two sets of twins, one through Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and the second set through In-vitro Fertilization (IVF). Our patient first met Dr. Diaz in 2001 and was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal condition that results in problems with ovulation.. With the help of medications and IUI many of our PCOS patients will ovulate and achieve a successful pregnancy. The response to medication is monitored by ultrasound until follicles are mature at which time hCG is given to release one or two eggs. A semen sample is prepared in our laboratory and the most active sperms are released into the uterus with a soft tube allowing them to fertilize the egg inside the womans fallopian tubes. Success came on their second IUI attempt and on June 1, 2002, they welcomed a set of healthy twins, a boy and a girl. Three years later the couple returned to continue their family building journey. After several IUI attempts, they asked about in-vitro fertilization (IVF); an advanced procedure where eggs are harvested by ultrasound technique and fertilized in our embryology lab. It is a very controlled treatment that involves placing a limited

West Coast Fertility Centers: Male Infertility Treatments

Because the epididymal tubule is very delicate and convoluted, the yield with a needle is typically small and usually only sufficient for a single cycle of IVF-ICSI performed on the same day as the PESA. In male infertility occasionally sperm may not be reliable retrieved at all. PESA can be used for men with congenital absence of the vas and in lieu of vasectomy reversal. This procedure involves insertion of a small needle, under local anesthesia, directly into the epididymis for aspiration of a fewer number of sperm than would be necessary for fertilization by conventional IVF. However, in most cases there are more than enough sperm to fertilize all oocytes by ICSI. With newer cryopreservation techniques, there may even be sufficient numbers of sperm for freezing so that additional ICSI procedures could be performed in the future without the need to obtain more fresh sperm. With male infertility the advantages to this technique are that it can be performed without surgical scrotal exploration, it can be repeated easily and at low cost, and it does not require an operating microscope or expertise in microsurgery. PESA has the main benefits of being successful in most of the cases, while avoiding a skin incision. Costs are lower because an operating microscope, the skills of a microsurgeon, and the possibility of
