Integrating Chinese Medicine with The Dao Health
Fertility, IVF, IVM - where to from here? with Dr Devora Lieberman
We had the absolute pleasure to have Dr Devora Lieberman as a guest on the podcast unpacking Fertility, IVF, IVM and where to next. Dr Lieberman unpacks the terms IUI ( Intrauterine insemination ), IVF and ICSI ( Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection ) and we discuss what IVM ( In vitro maturation ) is, how it differs to IVF and where it has a place in fertility treatment. Georgia and Elizabeth learn about the research into IVM and who the perfect candidate is to have this alternative from IVF.
From there Dr Devora discusses how an individual's fertility journey is their own as well as a patient being an advocate for themselves whilst undergoing treatment. We discuss live birth outcomes from Frozen and Fresh embryos and delve into the topic of IVF Add On's, what they are and when are they necessary. We finish with why a patient centred model of care is beneficial and why it is important that patients openly communicate with their fertility specialist about other treatment they are receiving.
Dr Devora Lieberman is the City Fertility's Medical Director, Fertility and Miscarriage specialist. Dr Devora gives us an insight into a day in the life of a Fertility and Reproductive specialist and when an individual or couple should seek out a reproductive specialist. We discuss if IVF ( In vitro fertilisation ) is the only option and three important questions an individual or couple should ask a fertility specialist when considering reproductive treatment.
We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful discussion and took a lot away from it, we hope you do too.
