Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh believes in getting personal when it comes to your fertility.
Whether it’s helping you outline what your fertility options are for the future or guiding you through a specific treatment today, it always starts with understanding YOU. This high-touch and highly personal approach to fertility care has made Dr. Aimee internationally recognized as a visionary in fertility medicine. She offers hope when all hope feels lost. Thousands have had babies as a testament to her loving and positive approach that blankets the cutting-edge reproductive technology she utilizes.
Your Personal Navigator for Fertility Care:
Diagnosis Before Treatment
In the nearly 20 years since she completed her medical training in 2001, Dr. Aimee has become well-known for her innovative approach to fertility care that begins with diagnosis before treatment.
Have you ever used a driving navigation app and been redirected midway to a better route? The app removes obstacles out of an otherwise potentially painful traffic situation using data. It’s not a one-size fits-all-route; it’s customized and updated in real-time. Dr. Aimee brings the beauty of a “map app” to fertility care by serving as a personal navigator for every one of her patients. Infertility can result from a range of factors, and the more data Dr. Aimee has on those factors, the better the chances are for her patients to get to their destination: a baby.
This begins with her TUSHY Method, a vital set of fertility screenings that will help her identify the most common causes of infertility and set up a care plan specifically designed for you. The TUSHY Method makes personalized fertility medicine easier, more affordable, and ensures that every patient will experience the highest likelihood for a healthy pregnancy.
The Egg Whisperer:
Testing to Track Your Fertility Over Time
Through her practice, Dr. Aimee has met many women in their 30s and 40s who have struggled with their fertility and wished they had known more about it when they were younger.
She realized that if someone told them to get their fertility hormone levels checked or to consider the option of preserving their eggs, they most certainly would have. In 2012, a patient inspired Dr. Aimee to launch The Egg Whisperer, a three-step plan for fertility testing, consultation, and tracking.
No matter where you live in the world, any woman who is concerned about her fertility can order Dr. Aimee’s Egg Whisperer Fertility Awareness Panel, which measures three hormones that help you understand your reproductive potential. By using this test to take your “fertility temperature” and then meeting with Dr. Aimee for a 20-minute consultation, she can begin to learn about you as an individual and start to guide you towards a personal fertility action plan. This could include making the decision to freeze your eggs.
While age is the best indicator of your egg quality and ability to get pregnant naturally, fertility tests can provide you with a snapshot of the current state of your fertility. By continuing to take these tests over time, you’ll be able to paint a personalized picture of your fertility health. For example, the tests can tell you if you have any flags for early menopause, a high chance of having PCOS and where you are on the fertility meter – high, medium or low.
Everyone Deserves Fertility Access and Education
Infertility is the third leading disease in the world, and there are over 20 million people in the United States who don’t have access to fertility treatment.
A large part of Dr. Aimee’s public health mission is to educate people about their fertility potential and remove the veil of mystery surrounding reproductive medicine and technologies.
In 2014, Dr. Aimee extended her mission to help educate and empower young people in their 20s and 30s about their fertility and better plan for their future families by starting her now well-known “Egg Freezing Parties” in San Francisco. Fertility can be a heavy topic, so she wanted to create a light-hearted and fun approach to fertility education and understanding fertility preservation options.
Ever since egg freezing became a viable option, a lot of women have now started coming to Dr. Aimee wanting to do the procedure. More companies are covering egg freezing on their health insurances plans, but for those women who don’t have the coverage, the steep price tag makes it out of reach. Over the years, Aimee has crossed paths with many women who want to give the gift of life by donating their eggs. In 2017, these two groups of women inspired her to start her Freeze and Share program, a new kind fertility sharing economy in which you can get your eggs frozen at no cost if you’re willing to share half of them with a family in need of a donor egg.
“I want to teach everyone about their fertility and fertility medicine so that no matter where you are, so you can take this information to your local doctor and talk to them about the necessary tests that you might need,” she says. Episodes are live-streamed on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and iTunes on Wednesdays at 7 PM PST.
Dr. Aimee’s revolutionary approach to fertility has garnered her media attention. She has been featured in magazines like People, Forbes, and Marie Claire, and has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS Morning, Fox Network, CNN and many local and international newscasts.
