Describe the protocols Laurence Udoff used in your cycles at Genetics & IVF Institute and their degree of success.
My protocol was not complicated, since I have two girls and want a boy, so we chose family balance(gender selection) through IVF plus PGD. I went through stimulation, egg retrieval, genetic screening and embryo transfer without any special treatment or complication, then I was pregnant this May! Since I trust the professionalism of Dr. Udoff, I am confident that he will make me pregnant.
