SACRAMENTO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — California IVF Fertility Center opens a new fertility center with updated technology to support the next generation of fertility treatments. The new facility offers physical improvements to the laboratory air quality and laboratory work-flow. California Conceptions Donor Embryo Program has enjoyed excellent success since 2010.
The donor embryo program now offers patients the option to use genetically screened embryos with the intention of increasing pregnancy success, reducing miscarriage rates, and in some cases, selecting a boy or girl. The program is proud to announce positive pregnancy outcomes with genetically screened embryos.
Dr. Ernest Zeringue, founder and medical director of California IVF, states, “Patients have demanded genetically screened embryos for years. Due to cumulative success rates of 95 percent, genetic screening has not been necessary. With improved freezing and thawing techniques, genetic screening reduces the total number of transfers needed for a successful outcome and avoids miscarriages and genetically abnormal pregnancies.”
Genetic screening, known as PGS, or pre-implantation genetic screening, and CCS, or comprehensive chromosome screening, has been performed at California IVF since 2006. Refinements to the freezing and thawing process, combined with embryo evaluation techniques, and changes to medication protocols, have led to higher success rates with genetic screening. The time has arrived for the integration of genetic screening into the California Conceptions Donor Embryo Program.

About California Conceptions Donor Embryo Program:
Started in 2010, the California Conceptions Donor Embryo Program is offered by California IVF. The program uses donor sperm and donor eggs to form donor embryos. The donor embryos are implanted in a recipient’s uterus and provides up to 70 to 75 percent rates of success per transfer. By offering 3 transfers, the program reaches a cumulative success rate of 95 percent. With the addition of genetic screening (PGS / CCS), the cumulative transfer rates may be similar, however fewer embryo transfers and fewer miscarriages offer more benefits to recipients.
The genetic screening option will also offer a refund option where patients may get the majority of their money back if they are not successful. The refund option has been very popular with patients seeking pregnancy through donated embryos, embryo adoption, and traditional adoption before discovering the California Conceptions Program. The program is very active and treats patients from across the United States and from countries around the world. More information can be found at http://www.californiaconceptions.com/.
