    Default Ask us your best fertility/IVF question! We'll ask an expert for you.

    Hi everyone!

    Do you have a question about infertility and reproduction? We are compiling an article for Genea and have access to their Medical Director (and Fertility Society of Australia President) Mark Bowman.

    Mark sees and treats hundreds of couples and singles each year and is intimately involved with the latest breakthroughs in overcoming infertility as well as the wider community issues involved in reproduction.

    We want the finished article to answer the questions that people REALLY want to ask.
    So who better to ask them than yourselves?

    Questions about new advancements? The future of infertility? Costs? etc

    I'll leave it with you. Would love to hear from you!

    Thanks!

    What should you do if your FS doesn't believe in the NK killer cells

    What number of sperm is considered 'normal' in a sample

    Do six day embryos have a better success rate than five day embryos or are they a bit slower to develop

    And, is a hatched embryo really the best (I question this as my first fet had fully hatched and failed, my second was hatching and worked); in theory is hatched 'too late' as it should be imbedding in the womb at that stage?

    How much time should you reasonably give your ivf treatment to succeed before looking at other options/specialists/clinic?

    What can Genea/IVF/current science offer for couples experiencing multiple miscarriage (including loss using a 5 day, PGD normal FET)? Is any headway being made to understand more about (so far) unexplained miscarriage?

    And +1 to the question about NK cells. What is the Genea official position and how are patients to decide when different doctors have such opposing views?

    Is it too late to ask?
    For women with poor response, do we need to try "all" available combinations of medications (which means changing FS) or basically stop after few if outcome is 0 eggs viable.
