A fertility clinic in the UK has had great results with some of their patients putting them on a substance that is normally used to artificially feed patients with stomach issues, they found it boosted IVF success rates: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/8229386/IVF-women-given-fresh-hope-by-new-fertility-treatment.html.

Have you heard anything about this in the US?

Hey Melissa, thanks for the info. Its surreal to read thant there is something out there that can increase the sucess rate of ivf by 5 fold. This is great news for women who have had ivf fail muliple times.
