One of the hardest decisions to make when IVF fails is whether to try again. Your emotions and finances weigh heavily. If you knew the outcome it would be so much easier to decide. Our guests to talk about how to decide and what factors to consider are Dr. Mylene Yao, a Reproductive Endocrinologist, formerly on the faculty at Stanford University where she was a NIH-funded principal investigator looking into IVF prediction models that could personalize success rates for IVF patients. She co-founded Univfy Inc. to translate that research into user-friendly online prediction tests to bring personalized prediction to patients and doctors. We also have Dr. Philip Chenette, medical director at Pacific Fertility Center in San Francisco. Dr. Chenette is among US News and World Reports' “Top Doctors” and was voted "Top Doctor" in San Francisco. Dr. Chenette is also the president of the Bay Area Reproductive Endocrine Society.
