  • No one understands how infertility is affecting me.
  • My husband is the only one I have who provides emotional support in dealing with infertility.
  • Infertility is affecting my work and career.
  • I feel that my life plan is out of control because of infertility.
  • I’m having trouble navigating my medical treatment options for infertility.
  • I can’t decide when “enough is enough” of infertility treatments like IVF, IUI and fertility medications like Clomid.
  • Holidays and coping with family and friends is becoming more more difficult the longer I deal with infertility and answer questions about why I am not getting pregnant or having a baby.
  •

At birth, most women had around 2 million ooctyes or eggs contained within immature folliciles.

According to a recent article in “Sexuality, Reproduction and Menopause”:

  • At 28 weeks’ gestation, a developing female fetus has a maximum of 6 to 7 million immature eggs
  • At birth, around 2 million eggs remain within immature follicles
  • At puberty, there are about 500,000 follicles remaining
  • At 38 years of age, around 25,000 follicles remain
  • From 38 to about 51 years of age, follicle loss accelerates until the ovaries stop working

As a Sacramento area fertility doctor who regularly helps patients struggling with infertility get pregnant with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF), Dr. Zeringue said. “Dr. Robert Edwards’ win of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Medicine highlights just how far advanced reproductive therapy has come since the first succesful IVF, “test tube” baby was born in 1978“.

Because of his work, the once revoluntionary and seemingly impossible task of fertilizing eggs outside of the womb is now commonplace at fertility centers across the country and around the world.

However, even as reproductive technology moves into new and exciting areas like the pre-implantation genetic screening of embryos (PGS), we will more than likely never get to look completely “under the hood” or know exactly why some people’s eggs and sperm just don’t seem to work. In many ways, this lack of knowing is what binds fertility experts with couples struggling to get pregnant.

Everyone is looking for a “glimpse behind the curtain” to find out why the magic and mystery of conception and child birth seems evasive to some potential parents. It is this basic human link between cutting edge fertility science and a woman’s need to have a child that will drive the newest innovations in reproductive technology.

As Dr. Edward’s probably knows, the latest technological advances may never compete with seeing the joy patients feel when they are finally pregnant and on their way to having a baby.

The “EZ Diet” is a dietary modification plan that has been gaining momentum over the last few years. Many people are completely unaware that dietary modification can lead to weight loss and improved fertility. Weight loss has many other benefits including prevention of cardiac diseases, reducing the risk of diabetes, and improving a person’s mood and energy levels. Dr. Zeringue has been working with infertility patients struggling to lose weight for many years. After gaining a detailed understanding of how the body regulates weight and other diseases, the diet modification plan has evolved into its current form. Nicknamed the “EZ diet”, many people have very successfully lost weight and maintained this weight loss.

There is no magical formula for weight loss, but there is real science. By gaining a better understanding of what foods do to a person’s body, Dr. Zeringue has found that most people are more committed to sticking to the diet. Doctors already know that most any diet plan will work if people stick to the diet. Most people want to lose weight or eat better, but finding reliable information can be difficult. Dr. Zeringue has performed community service lectures to help educate the public about a healthy diet plan and long term compliance. These seminars are free to the public and there are no products to purchase and no sales gimmicks.
