Friends Freezing Eggs Together

Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves

Fertility Security for the Future

 

 

 

Act now to freeze your eggs while they are still healthy and robust! One in five women are having their first child after age 35 when declining egg quality leads to a higher infertility rate. Women pursuing careers or women who have not met their life partner can request elective egg freezing to preserve their fertility. For more information, please contact us at 714-513-1399 or email us at info@ivfbaby.com.

Egg Freezing Specialist, David G. Diaz, MD, FACOG, and his Team are among the world’s foremost authorities on the Science of Egg Freezing with 75 healthy babies born from frozen eggs at the center. The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) removed the experimental label from egg freezing last year. Frozen Egg Bank is a division of West Coast Fertility Centers.

 

Raise Awareness for Egg Freezing During October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. West Coast Fertility Centers in affiliation with Frozen Egg Bank, Inc. encourage all young breast cancer patients who want to have children in the future discuss fertility preservation by egg freezing with their oncologists.

It is important to select a Center who has experience with egg freezing and thawing with live baby births from frozen eggs. The advanced LANDA Technology developed by Dr. David Diaz and Antoine La has yielded nearly 70 live baby births from egg freezing. While many fertility centers may offer egg freezing, they don’t necessarily have any live baby births to prove that they can freeze your eggs successfully to produce a baby in the future.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year. Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. (source: www.nbcam.org)

The gonadotoxic effects of chemotherapeutic drugs are known to potentially lead to infertility due to chromosomal effects in the oocyte (eggs). By harvesting and freezing before the start of cancer treatment, the unfertilized oocytes can be stored indefinitely and thawed when clearance is given to attempt pregnancy. This is especially important in young, single females interested in having their own biologic child.

West Coast Fertility Centers helps by reducing some of the costs of egg freezing while working closely with Fertile Hope, a non-profit organization that offers emotional support to cancer patients. Our industry partner, EMD Serono, provides free medications t our patients. This helps make egg freezing more affordable to these patients whose medical treatments may pose a risk of infertility.

Twin Girls Welcomed in a Household Full of Boys

Friday, June 17th, 2011

An ultrasound confirmed that our patient, Ana , is pregnant with twin girls. This is such exciting news because Ana and her husband already have 3 boys at home. They desperately wanted girls to “balance out” the family.

Due to an accident years back, Ana and her husband were not able to get pregnant naturally. They sought help from Dr. David Diaz at West Coast Fertility Centers and through IVF, they had twin boys. Spontaneously, Ana was pregnant with another boy and thought her fate was mothering a brood of only boys.

As time elapsed and the boys are a little older, Ana and her husband visited Dr. Diaz again because they wanted to have a daughter. Through the process of Gender Selection performed at West Coast Fertility’s accredited laboratories, an embryo biopsy technique called PGD can determine the “XX” (female) or “XY” (male) gender of any embryo with 99% certainty.

PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) is also very useful for diagnosing embryos that carry chromosomal abnormalities such as Down Syndrome or sex-linked genetic diseases.

Congratulations to Ana and her family! We all look forward to meeting your twin girls.
