Key Topics and Takeaways:
Where To Find Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh:
“Obviously infertility is a really heavy topic, so I try and make things as easy for people to digest and understand for themselves so that they're more inclined to do some of these checks without being so fearful about what the information might tell them.” (4:35, Dr. Aimee)
“I think there is a misconception out there and a myth that egg freezing and IVF are different things. They are the same. It is the same process and procedure. The only thing that's different is what happens with the egg after retrieval.” (5:52, Dr. Aimee)
“A lot of people think that you just freeze and forget, and then you just use them when you're ready, but that might not be enough and you don't want to learn it the hard way.” (9:04, Dr. Aimee)
“It would be amazing if there could be some sort of policy or a law in place that every woman who donates eggs also automatically gets eggs frozen for herself.” (12:46, Dr. Aimee)
“One should go to an acupuncturist who has a specialty, not just claim specialty, but a proven specialty in the area of fertility, because it is a complex process.” (19:07, Dr. Fox)
“What I would tell people is that when it comes to thawing your eggs, make sure you thaw them in the same place that you froze them when possible.” (27:08, Dr. Aimee)
