Encino, CA (USA), Tuesday - July 10th, 2012 -- An innovative new medical technique is offering new hope to would-be parents who struggle to conceive children naturally. The TENS device (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) has been verified by recent medical studies as a powerful tool in increasing the pregnancy rate for women undergoing an in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure.
IVF is a fertilization method commonly used by couples who can't conceive naturally although in recent years it has become the favorite choice of couples interested in baby gender selection, due to the 100% sex selection success rate that is possible with IVF procedures.
Gender selection and 'designer babies' are issues constantly surrounded by controversy and debate. The practice of gender selection has many critics within religious circles but for many parents, the practice is not simply a luxury, but a blessing.
Much of the controversy stems from misunderstandings of how modern gender selection ( http://www.gender-selection.com ) technologies work. The most effective of these technologies PGD, or pre-implantation diagnosis is actually a process originally developed to screen embryos for hereditary disease before they're implanted into the uterus, as part of a normal IVF.
In itself, IVF is a process which has allowed hundreds of
thousands of couples around the world to have children they would have been otherwise unable to bring into the world. The new findings on the effectiveness of the TENS device for increasing pregnancy rates mean that many more struggling couples will now be able to make their parenting dreams a reality.
There have been several articles published in the medical literature on using the TENS device (low dose electrical stimulation applied to the skin) in IVF cases, and they've reported a significant increase in the pregnancy rate, states Dr Silverman of The Silverman Center in New York, a clinic specializing in cutting-edge IVF and PGD procedures.
Our first case in which this technique was used has resulted in a twin pregnancy after the transfer of two male embryos, Dr Silverman said.
Due to its success we plan to use it in all future cases, and we expect to see an increase in our overall pregnancy rate.
Dr Silverman is currently running a promotion of Gender Selection by sperm separation alone offering future parents the opportunity to get an initial consultation and two procedures at a greatly discounted price.
