New Test Lets Women Know How Fast Their Biological Clock Is Ticking, Fertility Experts Discuss How to Optimize Fertility (amazon) (shopzilla)


Actress Halle Berry’s surprise pregnancy at 46 seems to be part of a growing trend of celebrity and real-life women getting pregnant in their mid-forties. But how easy is it to get pregnant after forty?

This is one of the questions that Dr Albert Yuzpe (fertility expert at Olive Fertility Centre), and a panel of fertility experts including Dr Victor Chow (male fertility specialist) and Lorne Brown (fertility acupuncturist and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre), will be answering at a public information talk on infertility, May 22, as part of Canadian Infertility Awareness Week 2013. “The purpose of this talk is to empower couples with information and tools to make decisions about starting their family and optimizing their chances of getting pregnant either naturally or with IVF,” says Dr Yuzpe.

“Many women dont realize that getting pregnant at 46 naturally or even with IVF (using your own eggs) is like winning the lottery,” he explains.

A recent Statistics Canada report, co-authored by Dr Yuzpe, shows that infertility in Canada has nearly doubled in the last two decades. “The main cause of infertility is age,” explains Dr Yuzpe, “but most women are woefully unaware of how quickly their fertility begins to decline after 35. I tell any patient over the age of 37 that they need to be as proactive as possible in trying to get pregnant. Along with testing for egg quality and ovarian function, we recommend supplements and lifestyle changes that can help maximize fertility in both men and women.”

    Trend Alert: Traditional Fertility Clients Find Success By Using Longevity Herbs (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Beverly Hills,CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2012

    In todays world, many couples are delaying pregnancy well into their late 30s. The problem is that women over the age of 35 find it more challenging to get pregnant. Usually after 6-12 months of unsuccessful attempts, pregnancy patients will start seeking fertility care.

    Ovarian Reserve is a medical term used to describe how good a womans eggs are. Fertility patients undergo tests to find out more about this reserve. One of these tests is called the Anti-mullarian hormone (AMH) test which measures how strong the reserve is. If the number is low, patients are considered to be infertile.

    Sadly, many patients with very low AMH counts are told they will never get pregnant. They are encouraged to use egg donors right off the bat.

    The good news is that these struggling couples may not be as fruitless as they seem. Experts suggest that they may find help in alternative techniques.

    Peyman Saadat, M.D., Medical Director of the Reproductive Fertility Center (RFC) in Beverly Hills, shares about the benefits of dietary changes, acupuncture, and supplements.

    We have had success in pregnancies with patients who have had undetectable AMH on two different occasions, says Sadaat. Using a more integrative medicine approach, these successes have occurred as recently as last month.

    Longevity Herbs founder and licensed acupuncturist, Bryan R Abel, has been a long time practitioner of alternative medicine. He treats fertility patients at his Pacific Palisades office and offers unique, potent supplements to aid with the pregnancy process. Some of his most popular blends are the Iron Complex Complete, CoQ10, and Adaptogen Blend. With the help of this holistic approach, many of his clients achieve the pregnancy they never thought was possible.
