Fertility Treatment is a Roller Coaster
It's our privilege to walk through the ups and downs with you.
Have the Conversation!
Some conversations at a conference last week led Southeastern Fertility Medical Director Dr. John David Gordon to emphasize anew something important when it comes to fertility treatment.
We Welcome Your Baggage
We know many of you have had difficult experiences in your pursuit of parenthood, and it's important to talk about those.
Welcoming the FDA
Southeastern Fertility recently welcomed the FDA for an inspection, but there really wasn't much to inspect. It speaks to what makes us a different kind of fertility clinic.
No, Overturning Roe Doesn't Endanger IVF
Don’t worry that the overturning of Roe v. Wade is going to wipe out fertility treatment, no matter what you’ve heard from the media. Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon is setting things straight in this video, complete with evidence from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
This video is all about rescue missions. When it comes to frozen embryos, we do them all the time here at Southeastern Fertility!
Mind-Boggling Cold, Awe-Inspiring Work
Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum are in a small room with about 4000 precious souls, taking a step back in awe of what (actually, who) is all around them!
Why We Don't Genetically Test Embryos
Over the past few years, the genetic testing of embryos prior to transfer has become a more common practice in reproductive medicine. But we don’t do it at Southeastern Fertility. Here’s why.
In the normal course of reproduction, an embryo makes its way into the uterus on Day 5. It then usually attaches and implants on Day 7. However, when it comes to IVF and frozen embryo transfers, it’s actually possible to “cheat the system”- and it still works!
Know When to Fold 'Em
When it comes to a scheduled embryo transfer cycle, sometimes you’ve got to know when to fold ‘em. Heartbreaking and frustrating as it can be, there are sometimes good reasons to put the brakes on a cycle. Doing so does not mean all hope is lost. It likely just means the timing isn’t right at a particular juncture, and your hopes of achieving pregnancy have a better chance of becoming realized down the road during a rescheduled cycle.
