Healthy eggs and embryos are the key to success in fertility treatment, but most of us know very little about them. Join us to talk about how human embryos grow and implant into the woman's uterus. How long can embryos remain frozen. What is happening with egg freezing, PGD, PGS, and freezing embryos. What can you do to help your embryos implant during IVF. Our guest today is Dr. Michael Tucker, scientific director for both Georgia Reproductive Specialist (one of our wonderful sponsors) in Atlanta, Alpharetta and Decatur, Georgia and Shady Grove Fertility in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Dr. Tucker has been a full-time clinical embryologist since 1983. His list of first’s is impressive: first intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) birth in the United States, first birth resulting from a testicular biopsy in the US, the first birth in the world from frozen donor eggs, and the first pregnancy in the world from immature eggs that were matured after thawing in the IVF lab.
