The Silverman Method
The Silverman Method involves In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD). I further enhance this technique with the additional benefit of Gsmart, my exclusive gender selection method.
The Silverman Method consists of 7 steps. 1. Ovulation stimulation and monitoring. I monitor the ovarian stimulation with blood tests and sonograms in order to measure the response to hormonal stimulation. 2. Egg collection. The eggs are collected under anesthesia by transvaginal needle aspiration. 3. Sperm separation. I use the Ericsson Method to select sperm of the chosen gender. This further increases the chances for a successful gender choice. 4. Fertilization. The eggs are fertilized in the laboratory with sperm of the chosen gender. 5. PGD. A single cell is removed from the embryo, and sent to a special lab to determination the sex of the embryo, and to check for chromosomal abnormalities. 6. Embryo freeze. Normal embryos of the selected sex are frozen for transfer in a subsequent cycle. 7. TEAS. TEAS stimulates blood flow to the uterus, increasing the success of implantation. I perform TEAS the day before uterine transfer, and the right after the transfer is performed. 8. Embryo transfer. The embryo is thawed, and transferred to the uterus.
TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL ACUPOINT SIMULATION (TEAS)
This is an acupuncture-like procedure that has been scientifically shown to increase pregnancy rates. Unlike traditional acupuncture, TEAS does not involve needles. Instead, I place electrodes at carefully selected acupoint locations to stimulate blood flow to the reproductive organs. In a study published in Fertility and Sterility, one of the most prestigious medical journals in reproductive medicine, the researchers concluded that use of TEAS significantly increased pregnancy rate for women who underwent embryo transfer.
In addition, I am the only specialist who successfully incorporates the Transcutaneous Electrical Acupoint Stimulation (TEAS), a form of acupressure treatment into the gender selection process. Stimulating specific acupoints – before and after embryo transfer aids in implantation, nourishes the embryo and increases pregnancy rates. I include TEAS as an effective and non-invasive method to increase the rate of successful pregnancies. TEAS is an additional tool that improves the results of gender selection.
