GEN 5 FERTILITY CENTER
Join us on Wednesday, April 20 at 5:00PM PST for a special LIVE Q&A with Gen 5 Fertility’s Dr. Samuel Wood and The Fertility Expert’s Dr. Marc Sklar! They will answer all your questions about fertility! Mark your calendars with this great Webinar and get your questions answered.
Everything about him and what he does is different. After 4 years, a miscarriage, 2 horrible egg retrievals that almost killed me, and 6 failed embryo transfers, I finally met Dr. Wood and that is when everything changed, and I finally had hope again.
Even after all of the IVF and the different doctors I have seen, his protocols are different than theirs, designed just for me and my body.
I am so happy to share that I am currently 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant and I saw the heartbeat of my sweet baby yesterday. My heart is beyond full, and I don’t feel hopeless anymore. Dr. Wood, Melissa, and his team have changed my life, and I will forever be grateful to them.”
Tammy & Marc
Tammy & Marc had been trying to conceive for more than 7 years. After a lot of research, they decided to try IVF with Gen 5 Fertility. They did 2 cycles of IVF and retrieved 3 normal embryos, and now they are happily and positively pregnant.
Jo Anne & Todd
This beautiful baby boy was born to an amazing couple at 5lbs 12oz and measuring 18 inches on December 30, 2021!
This couple had been trying for 4 years before coming to Gen 5 Fertility. They came to Gen 5 Fertility, did 1 cycle of IVF (EnPlaf), and got pregnant with their first embryo transfer.
This couple in their early 40s had gone through 3 cycles of IVF at a different center with no luck. Her AMH showed good numbers, and they could not find other issues.
She did a lot of research and found Gen 5. They looked further into her situation and found polyps. After removing these polyps, she went through another cycle of IVF with success! Her baby was recently born, and we are incredibly happy for her and her husband, and their new journey of parenthood.
Recently, Dr. Wood did some Q&A with patients all over the world. We pulled a couple of questions from the series to highlight below.
These questions came in from as far away as China. Also, many questions came from our domestic patients. We broke it down into single clips per question all the answers are under 3 mins.

Q: How can PRP improve ovarian function?
A: “One of the things I’m proudest of is the work we do in the area of ovarian rejuvenation. And that work involves several different factors but probably the most important one is PRP (or platelet-rich plasma) and related procedures. And using this technique, we were able to help many women who were told they have no chance to have a baby.
The way PRP works is to stimulate stem cells that are present in the ovaries. And when you do that, there is an increase in blood supply to the ovaries. There is an improvement in the quality of the environment within the ovaries. And in the end, the goal of PRP, the goal of ovarian rejuvenation is to increase the chance that a woman will make a genetically normal embryo. So, it doesn’t work for everyone, but for many women, it’s the answer they’ve been searching for. It’s a way they can finally have the baby they’ve desired for so long.”
Q: My AMH is just above 1. Is it possible to conceive naturally?
A: “It’s almost always possible to try to conceive naturally. But the real question is, what is the pregnancy rate if you try naturally versus the pregnancy rate with the various types of treatments that you’ve been told about, the treatments that you’re considering? Obviously, the older a woman is, the less likely it is that she will become pregnant naturally. But no one should tell you what to try to become pregnant.
It’s your choice. The job of a fertility specialist is to give you accurate information on what they believe you should do and why. But their job also is to help you succeed with the highest rate no matter what you decide. So in the end, you let them know what you want to do and they let you know the way to make that particular strategy work.”
