Pacific Fertility Center is providing women with new options for reproductive planning using fertility preservation. This allows them to take charge of their biological clock and preserve their younger, healthier eggs for later use. The implications of this exciting technology enable women to avoid the time pressure of fertility decline with age. Fertility preservation has been in the mainstream news recently with many Hollywood stars choosing to freeze their eggs and with pop culture TV shows discussing fertility preservation in their shows. This social phenomenon is here to stay. Dr. Philip Chenette explains more in this video.

San Francisco, CA – March 27, 2013 – The Pacific Fertility Center (PFC) reports exceptionally high pregnancy rates while minimizing risk of multiples through its new technology of elective Single Embryo Transfer (eSET).  eSET works by identifying an embryo with the highest chance for pregnancy. One embryo is transferred to produce one child, with the rest stored for later use.

One embryo, one healthy child.

Multiple gestation, common after traditional fertility treatment, increases the risk of complications for both mother and child. Low birthweight increases health problems for the neonate, and the risk of lasting disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and vision and hearing loss. According to the March of Dimes, more than half of twins, and all higher order multiples, are born at low birthweight.
