We profile actual patients who have been successfully treated at Dominion Fertility with Natural Cycle IVF. These stories are not uncommon, and we offer them so that you may find something that may be relative to your situation.
Patient With Diminished Ovarian Reserve
M.M. is a 36 year old nurse practitioner with primary infertility for one year.Her evaluation demonstrated decreased ovarian reserve so she underwent her first NCIVF. On April 8, she had a single blastocyst embryo transfer with her pregnancy confirmed yesterday!
Male Factor with Testicular Biopsy and NCIVF
L.M. is a 30 year old financial advisor with primary infertility whose husband underwent a vasectomy in 2000. Successful testicular biopsy was performed followed by her first NCIVF treatment with embryo transfer. Yesterday, a single intrauterine pregnancy was diagnosed by ultrasound at 7 weeks gestation and she has been referred to her obstetrician.
Two eggs and two embryos from one follicle. Remarkable!
J. H. is a 33 year old with severe diabetes and diminished ovarian reserve produced not one but two eggs and embryos in her first treatment with Natural Cycle IVF and became pregnant! She used no drugs, no shots and her total cost for NC-IVF was about 20-25% of the total costs for a stimulated IVF cycle! Yes, “it just gets better and better” and I am proud to have been part of her care.
Another First That’s a Second
A 32-year-old patient who last year delivered a successful pregnancy conceived by our Natural Cycle IVF program is again pregnant using NCIVF. Her pregnancy represents the first successful sibling NCIVF pregnancy in the Washington, D.C. area. She underwent traditional treatment at another clinic first. This did not result in pregnancy, so we performed her first NCIVF and she became pregnant. She delivered a healthy son in February 2008. Now she is pregnant with her second child; one egg, one embryo, no fertility drugs. The patient is almost speechless since she had been told by the other IVF clinic that she would require drugs for IVF.
Natural Cycle IVF Pregnancy in a 42 year old – First Attempt Successful!
M.R. now is a 42 yr old nurse, who had two healthy boys naturally, but then experienced secondary infertility. At her advanced reproductive age, decreased ovarian reserve was evident. On April 6, one egg was obtained and successfully fertilized using female enriched gender selected sperm. Two weeks later, her sonogram revealed an early intrauterine pregnancy, all in her normal menstrual cycle with no ovarian stimulating drugs. So, congrats to our patient M.R.! We hope it is a girl!!!
