Hello from San Diego!
Leaving New York was bittersweet. I have great memories of the rush and
franticness of my younger days but, after almost 25 years and now having
two young children, I don’t need that anymore. I need sun, beach
and a backyard. I will miss my former colleagues, my staff and my patients,
but my colleagues and staff will endure and my patients are in good hands,
so on to the sun and beach and a new purpose: Providing an alternative
to the patients of San Diego.
For those who do not know me, I have been with New Hope Fertility Center
in New York City these past 8 years providing infertile couples new options,
alternatives to conventional IVF: Japanese Low Stimulation IVF and Natural
IVF. Instead of high dose, frequent medications (also known as super-stimulation)
with high cost, frequent side-effects and complications, these alternative
protocols involve few if no medications, lower costs, fewer side effects
and fewer risks. Not only do patients tend to feel better overall, these
options have allowed patients to succeed where conventional IVF often
failed them (older woman, diminished ovarian reserve, premature ovarian failure).
These protocols may not be for everyone. Actually, I do think they are
for everyone, but because of the relative “newness” of these
protocols and the resistance of the reproductive community in embracing
these techniques, not everyone is ready for them.
For those of you who have failed IVF doing the same thing over and over
For those of you who have been told that you are too old, your FSH is too
high, your AMH is too low and/or you have a poor reserve and don’t
make enough eggs …
For those of you who feared too many medications, too many side effect,
too many complications …
I offer you an alternative.
