Today’s bonus episode guest is Dr. Norbert Gleicher of the Center for Human Reproduction in New York City. He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and of the American College of Surgeons. CHR is known as a “fertility center of last resort,” primarily serving patients who have previously failed treatments elsewhere.
Among CHR’s areas of special expertise are treatments for diminished ovarian reserve, which is what he and Heather discuss today:
- What is diminished ovarian reserve, or as you guys like to call it, low functional ovarian reserve?
- What are some signs a woman might have DOR?
- How is DOR diagnosed?
- Are there medications or supplements that can positively impact a woman’s DOR?
- Is IVF always the best approach to DOR, or are there other, lesser options that can be tried first?
- I’ve read miscarriage rates are high for women with DOR. What can be done to reduce this risk?
- At what point do you recommend couples consider an egg donor, and how do you advise them through the process?
- What words of hope would you offer to someone who’s just been diagnosed with DOR?
Words of Hope:The vast majority of patients with DOR can be helped and WILL BE moms, with their own eggs. Click To Tweet
