I was looking for a clinic to get treatment for early menopause and also IVF. I found University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine. Since I live in Denver, I’m looking into the Denver office. I assume that they perform fertility treatment there as well, did I get this right? Because some of the centers only have follow-up consultations in other cities.
I also would like to know my pregnancy probabilities with early menopause. Should I try it with a normal IVF or go straight into egg donation?
Thanks for clarification!11/01/2020 at 10:19 am
Early menopause is the termination of reproductive activity in women under 40. The ovaries stop working, there is no ovulation, and eventually, menstruation will disappear. This is why it is a cause for female infertility, which, however, can be solved through Assisted Reproductive Technology.
Women with POF who have not been able to become pregnant naturally can resort to in vitro fertilization (IVF) to try to retrieve some mature eggs with ovarian stimulation. However, this is not possible in cases where the ovarian reserve is severely affected. In this case, Egg donation will be the best option to become a mother, since the uterus will be able to maintain the pregnancy with the appropriate hormonal treatment. However, it will be your fertility doctor who determines the best fertility treatment option in your case.
Read about your treatment options here: Premature Ovarian Failure – Causes & Symptoms.
To answer your question about Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine: both locations have their own IVF laboratory so you can undergo fertility treatments in Colorado Springs and Denver.
In order to get a complete overview, I suggest you have a look at their profile: Overview of University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
Hope this helps,

Thanks for your answer. I actually don’t know much about my ovarian reserve. How can I know how many eggs I still have?11/10/2020 at 8:00 pm
you can have your egg reserve determined by means of Ovarian Reserve Test which consists of antral follicle count by ultrasound, a blood test that serves to assess FSH, estradiol, AMH or Inhibin B hormones, as well as dynamic tests that evaluate the ovary’s response to certain drugs.
