December News & Views
Both the Telegraph and The Times share a BMJ (British Medical Journal) report that 26 out of 27 IVF 'add on's' have no clinical evidence to back them up. They say that these added extras are exploiting couple's desperation but, knowing the IVF clinics here in Scotland, we completely disagree.
The Guardian reports that incidences of OHSS have risen substantially this year, perhaps due to IVF clinics trying to increase the number of eggs retrieved during a round of IVF.
New research carried out in London shows that acupuncture increases IVF success rates - reported here in the Times. Acupuncture is our most commonly asked-for treatment but working as a team and offering the patient more than one option is important to us. Working with Nutrition, Fertility Massage and Fertility Awareness are also relevant tools for you as a couple as the tests we offer such as Hair Mineral Analysis and DNA Fragmentation Testing.
Daisy's FIFTH blog is out now so follow her journey and please do get in touch with comments and advice - you can post anonymously but it would help her a lot to get your feed back and guidance.
You can't out-wit ageing but we can try to improve on what we've got. If you're worried about the quality of your sperm, get in touch with us about DNA Fragmentation Testing - now available at the Natural Fertility Centre in Edinburgh. There has been quite a bit of interest in this test so book ahead for a consultation - at Albany Street Clinic, one Sunday per month.
- For Glasgow patients: Our Conception Coach Dee Armstrong is available via Skype for consultations and our fertility nutritionist, Jane Jamieson, is regularly at the clinic in Glasgow. Please get in touch with us if you want to pre-book an appointment.
New patients are always telling us how much benefit they get from hearing other peoples' stories. If you are willing and able to share your story, whether on-line via a testimonial or case history on our website/blog, on Facebook or in the press, please do contact us.
