Fertility Specialists of Texas help women take control of their fertility



Sponsored by Fertility Specialists of Texas

Written by Dr. Rebecca Chilvers

Everyone knows that fertility decreases with age, but what can you do if you want a baby but are not quite ready?  There are several common scenarios that result in delayed childbearing for women such as waiting for the right mate, aiming to finish graduate studies or an advanced degree, or just wanting to wait a few more years as a single professional.  Less commonly, other women may feel pressure to conceive earlier than their social situation would prefer because they have to undergo medical treatments such as chemotherapy or because they have family history of premature menopause, more rightly called premature ovarian failure, where they are predisposed to run out of eggs in their 20s or 30s.  How can these women described above take control of their fertility?

The best option for such women is to have an evaluation of their ovaries with a reproductive specialist and to then do egg harvesting after stimulation of the ovaries with medication, followed by egg freezing.  This process is similar to in vitro fertilization (IVF) except that the process is arrested after retrieving the eggs until a later date when the woman is ready to proceed with fertilization using sperm followed by an embryo transfer, where the embryo is placed into the uterus to achieve pregnancy.  In labs such as that of Fertility Specialists of Texas where this cutting edge fertility preservation technique has been mastered, egg freezing offers women an attractive option with real potential.

The beauty of egg freezing is that a woman can have this procedure done before having a sperm source and can have some peace of mind that her frozen eggs will have the reproductive potential of her age at the time of the retrieval rather that the later date of when she decides to conceive.  Women who have their younger eggs on reserve should therefore have better chances of conceiving a normal pregnancy than they would statistically using their own eggs at a later age. 

At Fertility Specialists of Texas, we have a proven track record of success in IVF and in the area of egg freezing.  We are pleased to offer this advanced technology to our patients. 

Recognized for pregnancy rates among the highest in the nation, the team at Fertility Specialists of Texas shares a passion for helping create families.  Dr. Jerald Goldstein established the practice in 2005 with the goal of providing world-class treatments and highly individualized patient care.  Dr. Dorette Noorhasan and Dr. Rebecca Chilvers, both fellowship trained in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, joined the team of specialists in 2012.  The practice areas of expertise include in vitro fertilization, recurrent pregnancy loss, polycystic ovarian syndrome, donor egg, fertility preservation and male factor infertility issues.  

The physicians at Fertility Specialists of Texas specialize in providing patient care utilizing state of the art technologies.  The Grapevine office offers patients access to Fertilty Specialists of Texas world-class embryology lab and high pregnancy rates while providing care closer to home.  Drs. Goldstein and Chilvers started seeing Southlake area patients at their new location in Grapevine in January 2013.
