Whether it be use of your own eggs or donor eggs, we will walk you through the pathway to parenthood, connecting you with the avenues it will take to get there.

Running Out of Eggs?

It can be a heartbreaking scenario. A couple decides it’s time to have a baby, and it appears that all systems are go. Her menstrual cycles are fairly regular; he has a healthy sperm count. Yet, they fail to conceive. The culprit, seen in about 15 percent of infertile couples, may be low ovarian reserve—too few eggs left in the ovaries. Conceiving naturally is difficult.

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Fertility Test

The AMH test (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) is a blood test to help the fertility doctor assess the woman’s ovarian reserve. The test measures the levels of AMH in a woman’s blood and is helpful in determining whether a woman has premature ovarian aging or premature ovarian failure. When a woman grows older, her number of ovarian follicles begins to decrease.

Egg quality and pregnancy success

When you and your partner are trying to conceive, you never expect to encounter difficulties. Yet, as much as 10% of the population experiences fertility problems; that’s more than two million Americans. Egg quality is one of the most important factors in creating a successful pregnancy. Learn the common causes and treatments of poor egg quality. 

Lab-grown egg cells could be fertilized if license is granted

Researchers are now intending to seek permission from the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) to fertilize the eggs in order to test whether they are viable. Should such a study be successful, it would represent a breakthrough in fertility research and could open the door to greatly enhanced fertility for many women who had no hope before.

Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)

Imagine how insane you feel when you seem to be going through menopause at the age of 22—especially when you go to professionals and they don’t believe you,” says Carmen Simpson, who was in the military when she experienced her first symptoms. “I knew there was something really wrong, but I was misdiagnosed. A blood test finally revealed POF,”

How Eggs Fight Off Tardy Sperm Intruders

During human (or any mammalian) fertilisation, if more than one sperm manages to get inside an egg, there are typically no survivors.  And how human eggs avoid it has been pretty much a mystery until now. Scientists have discovered an enzyme called ovastacin fights off would-be fertilisers when there’s already one in the mix.

Ovulation moment caught on camera

A human egg has been filmed in close-up emerging from the ovary for the first time, captured by chance during a routine operation. Fertile women release one or more eggs every month, but until now, only animal ovulation has been recorded in detail. The pictures, published in New Scientist magazine, were described as “fascinating” by a fertility specialist.
