“Personalized medicine is based on the patient’s personal data. Now, when the patient enters a doctor’s office, the doctor develops the best therapy program for them. For instance, women with fertility problems are prescribed a certain number of Clomid or letrozole cycles. Using the data, the specialist determines when to proceed to IVF, how many embryos are required, and which patients are likely to face some difficulties.
The basic treatment program for a woman in her thirties usually includes drug therapy for infertility (for instance, Clomid) in combination with elective insemination. The patient is prescribed at least 2 or 3 cycles of therapy. Considering certain egg characteristics, we may recommend a smaller number of cycles and proceed to IVF faster. If the woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked, the basic examination is followed by IVF.
If a fertility problem is diagnosed in a man, there is no sense in wasting time with elective insemination. We will simply take a single sperm and inject it into the egg in the laboratory.
Any problem is best solved step by step. This is the only way to maximize the chances for success without wasting time and efforts on prolonged examination or lengthy, useless cycles. Success requires data, positive thinking, emotional and psychosocial support, and a clear idea of the result. With all these factors and our guidance, a couple can overcome any problems associated with infertility and experience the happiness of being parents.”
