March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of it. Endometriosis affects between 20-50 percent of women who are investigated for infertility depending on the study or literature being reviewed. This effect on fertility can arise from various complications such as cysts, scar tissue, and inflammation, and tubal blockages that can all arise from endometrial lesions. 

The good news is that In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment that can help women with endometriosis. IVF involves stimulating the ovaries to produce multiple eggs using medication, or external gonadotropins. When stimulating the ovaries with gonadotropins, it is extremely important to track ovarian responsiveness. How the ovaries are responding can be tracked by using transvaginal ultrasound to check on the ovaries and see how follicles are maturing or growing over the stimulation cycle, which can last anywhere from 10-16 days. During this timeframe, a patient can expect to do three to six monitoring ultrasound visits.

 

 

Once your follicles mature, your reproductive endocrinologist will schedule a retrieval where they will collect those eggs bypassing the many problems associated with endometriosis. The eggs are then fertilized in the embryology laboratory. Next they will transfer the resulting embryos directly into the uterus which is unaffected by the endometriosis..

IVF treatment offers hope for women struggling to conceive due to endometriosis and Cycle Clarity is the only tool that helps reduce the burden and stress surrounding ovarian monitoring. Cycle Clarity is such a technology that reduces the time of the transvaginal ultrasound, where probe contact time is a fraction of conventional ultrasound. Moreso, your images and results can be transmitted to any reproductive endocrinologist in the United States from your local OBGYN and Imaging center!

Is Cycle Clarity accurate?

Cycle Clarity is an FDA cleared AI software platform that is able to detect, count and measure each of the follicles in your ovary. In the FDA clinical trials the Cycle Clarity software was as accurate as a Reproductive Endocrinologist performing the ultrasounds. Most manual ultrasounds take 10 minutes. Cycle Clarity does the ultrasound in 10 seconds per ovary. The power of computing. 🙂

How long does the ultrasound take?

A Cycle Clarity ultrasound typically takes 10 seconds per ovary and is then directly transmitted through the internet to Cycle Clarity. Cycle Clarity will verify the receipt of the images and quality of the images before you leave the OBGYN office.

How does my doctor receive my results?

The doctors will receive your results instantly through the Cycle Clarity platform. The Cycle Clarity platform allows the clinical team to see your entire ovary to verify the measurements AI makes. It also allows the team to add and delete follicles if necessary and to predict the optimal time for insemination or egg retrieval.

How much does Cycle Clarity cost?

Cycle Clarity costs $236 for one month of service, unlimited ultrasounds. Your OB/GYN would charge you or your insurance for your ultrasound. There would be no additional fertility clinic charges for the use of Cycle Clarity.

How do I get my OB/GYN involved?

Reach out to your OB/GYN to see if they would be willing to help you with your ultrasounds. Following that Cycle Clarity will take over. On your sign up form, we will have you fill in the information of your OBGYN. Our integration specialists will reach out to your OBGYN to ensure the ultrasound machine successfully sends the information to Cycle Clarity, so that your fertility doctor can see this information.

Cycle Clarity Connections empowers IVF patients through an FDA cleared image analysis software. We provide you with the freedom to make informed choices when selecting your ideal fertility specialist based on location, treatment start time, and success rates
