Breast cancer survivor has twins

A Phoenix mother gives birth to twins after being diagnosed and overcoming breast cancer. Doctors told her, there was a slim to none chance she would ever conceive. Dr. John Couvaras of IVF Phoenix not only was the first to comment on her immune system but made her dream of being a mother reality. She has her own children without donor egg.

A simple blood test is the latest industry darling giving new meaning the “Egg Timer”

Scottsdale, Arizona – Some say that 40 is the new 30. But reproductively, 40 is still 40.  Today,  women  are  not  only  multi-taskers  but  high  achievers  and  clearly motherhood should be rescheduled for when they choose not for when they must.

Most recently, Anti-Mullerian Hormone [AMH] has become the ovarian reserve test darling. A woman’s ovarian reserve is the amount of available good quality eggs available in her ovaries. Women with an AMH of less that 2.0 need a call to action to either contemplate conceiving today or opting for egg freezing to increase her odds of being able to conceive later in life.

Medical Director Dr. John Couvaras of IVF Phoenix points out women in their 30’s are delaying motherhood for various reasons yet are not mindful that they can preserve the option to secure motherhood in the future. This population of women can choose to freeze their eggs now for later. “The AMH blood test can give women a piece of mind, and put them on a fast track to planning a pregnancy or freezing their eggs.”

This test is not cycle specific and correlates with numbers of eggs obtained at IVF retrieval.  Less mature eggs means less embryos and thus associates with a poorer outcome.  As women age, the AMH will decline and the association with AMH and age is taking hold.  Lower AMH is being considered a marker of poorer quality eggs, but this may not be the most accurate interpretation.

Maternal age is considered the best predictor of successful reproductive outcome in woman.  By age 35, reproductive success cuts by half, and then by a half again by age 39.  By age 40, the chance of having a baby with IVF is 20% and drops precipitously to 5% by age 43-44. It was for these concerns that the Guild sought to come up with tests with predictive value for live birth.
