    Preparing for Embryo Transfer

    Preparing for Embryo Transfer

    On today’s podcast episode, I’m talking about preparing for embryo transfer. I find that it’s helpful to think about embryo transfer the same way you might think about having a very special guest over for dinner.
    What are you going to do if you have a very special person over? You’re going to make sure everything is absolutely perfect. When it comes to preparing for an embryo transfer, you want to take the same approach. Your metaphorical home in the house analogy is your uterus.
    The devastation of doing more tests and finding out that something might be wrong that you have to fix is kind of a pain, but the devastation of going through a transfer that doesn’t work is also pretty darn awful. Because I work so hard to help families, if I can do anything to prevent someone from not experiencing the devastation of a negative embryo transfer, I’m going to do everything possible to clean up that house and make sure it’s perfect.
    What I recommend is that people do 3 tests before embryo transfer to make sure your uterus is absolutely perfect prior to your embryo transfer.They are: Hysteroscopy Saline Infusion, Sonogram, and Hysterosalpingogram.

    How to avoid implantation failure during IVF with guest Dr. Geoffrey Sher

    How to avoid implantation failure during IVF with guest Dr. Geoffrey Sher

    Dr. Geoffrey Sher is joining me again, and this time we are going to talk about implantation failure during IVF. Dr. Sher is co-founder of Sher Fertility Solutions (SFS) and an internationally renowned expert in the field of assisted reproductive technology, and influential in the births of more than 17,000 IVF babies. One day I hope that I’ll be able to say the same thing about myself. Over the last 30 years, he has helped fashion the entire field of ART after training under the fathers of IVF, Dr. Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards. He established the first private IVF program in the United States in 1982, then later expanded his practice to include several centers throughout California before founding the first Sher Fertility Solutions in Las Vegas. He’s also the author of several books, In Vitro Fertilization: The ART of Making Babies, which is now in its third edition.

    In this episode, we're talking about implantation failure during IVF. Many times I wonder why embryos do not stick and grow. Dr. Sher is discussing the role of the endometrium, the difference between implantation and miscarriage, and the three factors he considers when advising on treatment for implantation failure.
     
    Thank you for joining me, Dr. Sher! You can find his site here: https://sherfertilitysolutions.com/

    Supporting Fertility with Mind/Body Strategies & Techniques with Dr. Alice Domar

    Supporting Fertility with Mind/Body Strategies & Techniques with Dr. Alice Domar

    As you know, I encourage all fertility patients to support themselves throughout their fertility journey from a mind and body perspective. I’m beyond delighted to have Alice D. Domar, Ph.D back on the podcast to talk about how to support fertility with mind/body strategies and techniques. She is the Executive Director of the Domar Centers for Mind/Body Health and the Director of Integrative Care at Boston IVF. She is an Associate Professor Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, at Harvard Medical School.
     
    Dr. Domar established the first ever Mind/Body Center for Women’s Health ~ as well as the very first Mind/Body Program for Fertility. She now teaches people strategies to reduce anxiety, depression, and distress through relaxation, mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, and yoga. Research continues to show that mind/body infertility programs not only improves psychological symptoms, but also increases pregnancy rates. We will be talking about all of this, along with her redesigned mobile app FertiCalmPro (which contains more than 500 solutions to the events and situations most likely to cause distress for anyone experiencing infertility), and her new program with Best Shot. 
     
    This discussion about the mind/body connection is so very important, because the mental and emotional strain on fertility patients is something that doesn’t get enough attention. Be sure and check out Dr. Domar's books and resources for more information.

    Does Sperm Really Matter?

    Does Sperm Really Matter?

    Does sperm really matter? If you tuned into the conversation with Dr. Paul Turek and I earlier this week, you'll know that of course it matters!
     
    It truly does take both sperm and an egg to make a baby. Today I'll review the sperm question a bit, and explain why it matters. AND, I'll give you a lot more info about how to improve sperm quality.
     
    Here's the thing: I know that guys want to hear what they want to hear. They have selective listening. I'm not kidding when I tell you that I had someone email me recently and say "My husband's sperm tested out GREAT, and when we went over the results with the doctor we heard two different things. He thinks he heard our doctor say that it means he can just keep drinking, smoking, and enjoying marijuana and doesn't need to make any lifestyle changes. I heard something very different, which was that he should still cut back until we are pregnant. Can you help settle this for us?"
     
    And while it's an unpopular answer (at least with the guys), my response is: Men should cut back or abstain from drinking, and smoking (marijuana too) if you're TTC.
     
    Here are a few of the things I suggest to anyone bringing the sperm side of the equation to the baby making situation:
    - consider freezing your own sperm for future use when you are young.
    - get in the best shape of your life if you're trying to conceive. Sperm matters, and men's health is directly related to their sperm quality.
    - take some prenatal vitamins. Yes, really. Many of the same supplements that I recommend for egg quality also are great for sperm quality.
    - cut back on smoking, drinking, and drug use. Marijuana negatively impacts sperm.
    - don't cook your balls: avoid hot tubs, using your laptop on your lap, and other situations that may create high temps for the area.
    - find ways to cut back on stress, if you live a stressful life. Mindfulness and meditation are great for everyone.

    Do Men Have a Biological Clock?

My trusted go-to person for the latest information on those little swimmers is Dr. Paul Turek, who I like to call, “The Sperm Whisperer.”⁠ Today on The Egg Whisperer Show podcast, Dr. Turek joins me to talk about the definition of male infertility, preventative fertility healthcare for men, when couples should seek treatment, how age impacts male fertility, and how to improve sperm quality.⁠
