Learning Objectives

In this course, we talk with Dr. Mark Trolice, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Director of The IVF Center in Orlando and Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, and Corey Burke, an embryologist and Tissue Bank Director at Cryos International-USA. We discuss decisions doctors, nurses, and patients have to make concerning eggs or embryos after retrieval.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the IVF process.
  2. Compare the challenges between freezing eggs vs freezing embryos.
  3. List 2 factors that influence whether a reproductive endocrinologist will recommend that a patient do a fresh embryo transfer.
  4. Explain how genetic testing affects whether embryos will be frozen or transferred fresh.
