New Fertility Treatment -- The Pregnancy Patch

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, September 27, 2018 | 0 comments

Image: LE: Fertility Specialist Works Medical MiraclesResearchers are testing a new treatment for fertility – it's a kind of pregnancy patch.

Melissa Willmarth describes her 6-week old son Brook as her little miracle. She said, It was a long journey... a few years of infertility.

Willmarth credits her miracle to a team of reproductive health specialists led by Dr. Mike Thomas.

He's part of a national team conducting one of the first trials in the country on a patch to help prepare the body for pregnancy.

It's a patch that pumps hormones into the system every few minutes, primarily for women who have low hormone function, or a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome -- which can lead to irregular cycles, Thomas said.

The patch is being studied in healthy women between the ages of 18 and 38 who want to become pregnant.

There are very few restrictions with the trial, with the exception of not being obese or having a body-mass index of greater than 35.

Thomas's team is comparing the patch to other approved fertility treatments, which means all women who qualify to be part of the study get free fertility care.

Willmarth said, I couldn't imagine my life without him. He's the best thing that ever happened.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
