East Coast Fertility is attempting to dispel the notion that all U.S. clinics pursue aggressive treatments and send patients home pregnant with multiples. While they want to achieve a pregnancy for the patient, their priority is health and safety. In addition, they are mindful of the burden multiple births can put on a country’s healthcare system.
(PRWeb UK/PRWEB ) December 1, 2009 -- Many patients and doctors in the U.S. worry that fertility care can involve overly aggressive treatments. They feel standard practices are not often in line with their recommendations for treatment. However, the fact remains that couples struggling to start a family sometimes have no other option but to seek help away from their homes. This is especially true in cases where egg donors are needed to achieve pregnancy. In some places. there is a three year wait for donor eggs, while the wait at East Coast Fertility is much shorter. It makes sense for couples to travel to get the services they so desperately need, but they often fear that they will be encouraged to transfer several embryos at once and risk a multiple birth.
East Coast Fertility is attempting to dispel the notion that all U.S. clinics pursue aggressive treatments and send patients home pregnant with multiples. While they want to achieve a pregnancy for the patient, their priority is health and safety. In addition, they are mindful of the burden multiple births can put on a country’s healthcare system. Dr. David Kreiner of East Coast Fertility reflects on the negative opinion that sometimes surrounds cross-border fertility care. “We want patients to know that we share their concerns, and our goal is to help them build their families one baby at a time.”
East Coast Fertility offers a Single Embryo Transfer (SET) donor egg program. They encourage patients to pursue this protocol by removing the financial incentive from transferring multiple embryos at once. Many patients feel pressure to succeed the first time because of the high cost of treatment, so they risk multiple births by transferring several embryos during an IVF cycle. The SET donor egg program removes this financial pressure. Patients transferring one embryo at a time get free cryopreservation and storage as well as three (3) frozen embryo transfers within one year of the fresh cycle or until she has a live birth, whichever comes first for the price of just one. Unlike other cross border destinations, patients in the U.S. can choose well-screened donors based on personal preferences. The increased availability of donors, the ability to choose those donors and the SET program at East Coast Fertility offers their patients the highest quality of care combined with the highest ethics and approach that patients can receive anywhere in the world.
