Dr. Lawrence Werlin has been featured on a recent radio segment of CreatingAFamily.org, where he discussed various age and fertility treatment. This is his second appearance on the show, and he enjoyed sharing his expertise and opinions. Creating A Family is a non-profit organization that provides education, resources, and support for infertility and adoption.
You can listen to the whole show above. Some quotes from the show are featured below:
“The most important thing that you can do is remember this (infertility) is a couple’s problem… Typically it’s a combination of things and our job as the reproductive endocrinologist is to try and isolate those things which may be playing a role… Many times there is no single answer.”
“When you look at things like age, the critical thing I think that women have to be aware of is that you are born with all of your eggs. So at age 25 years old you have 25 year old eggs. At age 40 years old, you have 40 year old eggs. It’s like any other cell in your body. Those eggs age, the genetic material within those eggs degenerate and as you get older the likelihood for successfully achieving a pregnancy will decrease.”
