as a result of which it becomes harder for us to retrieve eggs. Both quantity
and quality are affected, and many of these eggs don't become embryos ; and
often the embryo quality is poor as well.
For these women, because time is at a premium, we offer
the option of embryo pooling, to maximise their chances of success.
We do multiple ( 3-4) fresh IVF cycles back to back, but
don't do any transfers. We collect all the eggs; fertilise them; and freeze all
the embryos on Day 5. Dr Sai has mastered the vitrification process for

embryos is 100%.
Though this option is more expensive , because you need to
do more fresh cycles , it increases the number of options that you have of
getting pregnant. This can make a world of a difference, especially for an

you, we can then thaw them and transfer them back into your uterus, one at a
And if you get pregnant with your first transfer, you can
