Ep 176: A Delicate Disposition – Deciding What to Do with Unused Embryos

When many patients begin fertility treatment, one of their biggest concerns is what they will do with their leftover embryos, known as embryo disposition. Join Dr. Carrie Bedient from The Fertility Center of Las Vegas, Dr. Abby Eblen from Nashville Fertility Center and Dr. Susan Hudson from Texas Fertility Center for a discussion about the decisions IVF patients have to make about their remaining embryos.

Can they limit insemination to create fewer embryos? Our docs tackle patients’ vital concerns.
