DR SILBER IS OUR HERO
It all began about 5 years ago when we got married. We were in our early 40’s. I never thought that I would have problems conceiving since I had regular periods and no health issues- non drinker non smoker, but unfortunately I was faced with the dark reality of infertility which was all because I delayed the natural biology clock of conception for so long.
I was told by my specialist that because of my advanced maternal age I would have to consider getting donor eggs. That was a complete NO for us and I wanted to use my own eggs to conceive.
Its really frustrating to know that most of the infertility specialist who claim to have great results do not even entertain patients who hit 40 unless they agree to donor eggs. They claim to have high success rates BUT the reality is they do not have high success rates, since their patient population is all under 40.
So my argument is that real experts are those who can help older women conceive with their own eggs- that is an indicator of expertise and success.
I started looking up online and by stroke of luck and fate I came across Dr. Silber who talked about revolutionary mini IVF for older women.
Dr Silber was out of state for me in St Louis. I called his office and we made an appointment with Dr Silber and went to St Louis MO to visit him and my life completely changed. That was by far the best decision of my life.
He looked at my ultrasound and told me right away that I had multiple follicles and had a fairly good chance of having my own child. We were so hopeful.
He recommended that since my biological clock was clicking we go through at least 3 retrievals before transfer. We took Dr Silber’s words like “Words of God” and followed his recommendations. For some reason I had total faith in him and he is such a loveable fatherly figure for me.
I was administered minimal quantity of medicine far less than my first IVF experience at the precious facility. We went through 4 retrievals within an year and we had11 healthy embryos.
The end of that year was magical. I had my first transfer. He walked into my room before the procedure and told me right away that I would get pregnant. I was very excited to hear that but at the same time very doubtful because of all the negativity in me from my previous experiences.
Again I cannot emphasize Dr Silber’s expertise in doing the transfer so gently that I barely felt anything and its the technique that really counts in IVF.
We flew back home and eagerly and anxiously waited for my first pregnancy test. The day finally arrived and I had the test. I cannot express my feelings enough in words when Dusty my IVF coordinator called me with the news that my ears could hardly believe. “You are pregnant” . It was like a dream come true. I had waited for this day for so long.
I continued my progesterone shots religiously as I was told for 3 months and my husband finally was a pro in giving me those shots.
My pregnancy went smooth and by the grace of God we have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy. I cannot tell you how wonderfully my life has changed. My son is a miracle of God.
What a journey I had. I am a believer in fate and fate brought me to the right person. Don’t be discouraged that if you are over 40 you have no hope left. God gives life and He can create from nothing. You just need to strive for it. Invest in it with time, effort and money. This is the best investment you can make for your future with surpassing reward.
If you are reading this story then its a sign that your prayers have already been heard. You need to go nowhere. You are at the right place at the right time with Dr Silber.
Dr Silber is very passionate about what he does. He is very straightforward, sincere and will give you the best advice. We both believe that he is not doing this as work or for any monetary gain but his sole goal is to help couples fulfill their dreams.
