How the technology has changed

Alpesh Doshi

In this video, we meet Mr Alpesh Doshi, UCL lecturer and senior embryologist at The Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health. Alpesh has been involved in IVF for almost two decades and he has seen how the field has changed, driven by scientific advances, especially in embryology.

In this interview, he discusses egg freezing from a technical point of view, how the technology of egg freezing has changed and also the importance of tailoring treatment to each individual. He describes the impact of the new technologies and how it has changed the expectations of both clinicians and clients.

For discussion: Statistics for successful pregnancies vary depending on the methods used and the skills available. The CRGH achieves up to a 60 per cent pregnancy rate from their frozen eggs. However, that is only for women below the age of 35 should they have at least 8-10 eggs frozen.

What do you think about this pregnancy rate statistic?
