Fertility Expert Speaks On The Benefits Of Reproductive Immunology At The Fertility Show Wednesday 29 October 2014 PDF Print I am often struck by how little couples have been told about what they can do to increase their chances of conception. London, UK Leading Consultant Gynaecologist and Director of The Fertility & Gynaecology Academy, Dr Amin Gorgy, will engage in a debate on Reproductive Immunology with Professor Lesley Regan on 1st November 2014 at The Fertility Show in London. Dr Gorgy will be speaking in favour of Reproductive Immunology as a viable fertility treatment option for women who have undergone repeated IVF implantation failure or recurrent miscarriage. The Fertility & Gynaecology Academy is one of only a handful of clinics offering Reproductive Immunology treatments within the UK. Building on a view pioneered by Dr Alan Beer, treatment is based on the concept that the products of an activated immune system could damage the placenta and cause miscarriage, as well as damage the embryo and cause implantation failure. Natural killer cells, which help to keep the body from developing cancer, can over-populate the uterus or exist at levels that are too high within the blood stream. These cells then go overboard, killing the embryo or interfering with the endocrine system that produces the hormones necessary for pregnancy. Dr Gorgy will cover pressing issues regarding this controversial topic and the full range of tests which are available, aiming to isolate problems causing implantation failure or preventing successful pregnancy. The Fertility Show is the UK’s foremost arena for would-be parents to receive information, support and advice on conception. It is a forum offering an unparalleled level of expertise in one place in one single weekend (Nov 1-2). The annual event attracts thousands of hopeful couples each year, who find help in a supportive environment. Dr Gorgy’s Fertility and Gynaecology Academy will be hosting a stall at the event (Stall #89), where Dr Gorgy will be on hand both on Saturday and Sunday to provide information and advice to would-be parents. Dr Gorgy said: “I am delighted to have been asked to speak at The Fertility Show this November. I am often struck by how little couples have been told about what they can do to increase their chances of conception. Even when attempts at assisted conception, including IVF, have repeatedly failed – it is often unclear what the problem actually is because they may not have had the necessary specialised tests. Since fertility decreases with age, every month counts. For couples about to start trying, or those who have been unsuccessful at conception up until this point, The Fertility Show really is the perfect place to begin getting to the bottom of any problems – and I will certainly be covering a lot of ground in my talk.” ----- About The Fertility & Gynaecology Academy www.fertility-academy.co.uk The Fertility and Gynaecology Academy is an established Assisted Conception (IVF) Unit in central London that provides top-quality infertility treatments.
