As a woman, we have so many choices in our lives now, but when it comes to getting pregnant we can’t always choose the right time. But there are options available for women who want to get pregnant. Dr. Kirtly Parker Jones speaks with fertility specialist Dr. Joe Letourneau about alternatives to in vitro fertilization and the choices available to help you build your family.
Women have a loose time frame for making babies. If you're in your late 30s and haven't met the person you'd like to start a family with yet, the end of that time frame might be unfortunately drawing near. Women's health expert Dr. Kirtly Parker Jones talks to fertility preservation specialist Dr. Joe Letourneau about the options available for freezing your eggs in time.
Recently, frozen embryos have been in the news with a woman giving birth to an embryo that had been frozen for over 24 years. Not only did the birth break a medical record, it brings up a lot of questions about what it could mean for future parents and the medical community at large. Dr. Kirtly Parker Jones explores the science behind cryopreservation, IVF, and some of the dilemmas and opportunities this new breakthrough could mean for potential parents.
