      Hi Komal,

      I honestly think you could get a great deal out of a Skype consultation with me.

      Consider calling 800-780-7437 or 702-699-7437 to arrange a Skype with me so we can discuss your case in detail.

      Finally, perhaps you would be interested in accessing my new book (recently released). It is the 4th edition (and a re-write) of “In Vitro Fertilization: The ART of Making Babies”. The book is available through “” as a down-load or in book form. It can also be obtained from most bookstores.
