5 ​things you should never ask a woman dealing with infertility 1. Sometimes despite the best intentions, we end up saying things that may sound hurtful.

Why Are Women So Mean to Infertile Women?

WHEN I STARTED writing the weekly Fertility Diary column for The New York Times Motherlode blog about my IVF journey, I was shocked by the vitriolic comments. Sure, I was an older woman who, at 41, might have waited too long to get pregnant, but what was it to other people? What harm was I doing to anything other than my bank account? “Your [sic] old and dried up,” one commenter wrote. This was in 2013, before Trump’s polarized America; it was before commenters became the story, when they could still be dismissed as a few nutjobs. “Amy’s journey seems…

More is less, more is better: oocyte number and optimal IVF

Recent studies suggest that in fresh single IVF cycles optimum results can be achieved with as few as nine fertilised oocytes. This is in contrast to results in cumulative cycles, where the more oocytes, apparently, the better. Despite a shift in some regions to milder IVF protocols and single embryo transfer, today remains 'an era of aggressive stimulation', according to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) in the USA. This trend, SART explains in reporting a new study on oocyte number and pregnancy outcomes, has depended largely on the simple historical fact that IVF success rates improved when stimulation…

The unintended consequences of Canada’s fertility law changes

Melissa Salfi is a Vancouver lawyer specializing in family and fertility law at Crossroads Law. Canada is considered an international surrogacy destination, with progressive laws that have attracted couples internationally. But, in just over nine months, a new Canadian fertility landscape will be born, bringing new regulations for reimbursing surrogates and donors. In fertility circles – both in Canada and beyond – there is fear that these new regulations will discourage people from becoming surrogates and donors. The new regulations from Health Canada, which come into effect June 9, 2020, set out exhaustive categories of reimbursable expenses – a big change…

IVF success rates improve amid growing concerns about lack of industry transparency

Three years. Five IVF cycles. Thirteen embryo transfers. Still, Kate* had no baby. "I went in for the 14th embryo transfer and was told, 'Sorry, we don't have one for you'," she said. By that point, Kate was 41. She'd tried "anything and everything" to get pregnant, and spent more than $40,000 in the process. "The treatment knocked me round physically and mentally, the constant disappointment … trying to deal with regular sadness," she said. Having started IVF at 38, Kate knew the odds were stacked against her. But with each failed attempt, she was offered another round — and…

Male factor fertility

Why Aren’t More Men Aware of Their Fertility Status? Male factor fertility issues contribute to around one-third of all infertility cases. Infertility affects approximately 15 percent of couples who are trying to conceive. Infertility is often incorrectly viewed as primarily a female issue outside medical circles. However, both male and female factor fertility issues each contribute to around one-third of all infertility cases. Yet a recent survey of 1,000 men over the age of 18 found that almost half of the respondents declared they were either unaware of or unconcerned with their fertility health. Experts say male factor fertility issues…

74 yr old gave birth to twins

Recent studies suggest that in fresh single IVF cycles optimum results can be achieved with as few as nine fertilised oocytes. Last week a 74-year-old woman from Andhra Pradesh delivered twins after undergoing one cycle of IVF treatment. The recent ‘success’ story of a 74-year-old woman from Andhra Pradesh, who delivered twins following in vitro fertilisation (IVF) has left many in awe and shock. While the successful implementation of IVF on an elderly woman has been recognised as a scientific advance, several others have criticised the hospital’s decision to allow a 74-year-old woman to undergo IVF. On September 5, 74-year-old…
