I was a Dr. Toth's patient in April 2005. I come to him after losing almost any hope to have another child. (My daughter is 24 years old).

After 2.5 years of acupuncture, 3 cycles of Clomid, 4 medicated IUIs, 3 IVFs with transfer and another 3 IVFs which were cancelled due to no response, by Cornell doctor's opinion, I had no chances to conceive using my own eggs.

Dr. Toth was my last hope.

My husband and I got tested and my husband was diagnosed with Chlamydia infection and some other bacteria. He was tested multiple times in different infertility clinics, they found nothing. Not NYU, not Cornell, nor Columbia.

We both had full Dr. Toth's treatment in April 2005 (by the way it was covered as out-network procedures by Cigna and United Health Care)

After we finished the treatment, Dr. Toth told me, You will get pregnant in 6 months. And I did get pregnant in Oct 2005. But I miscarried in December due to chromosomal abnormality.

I had D+C in December 2005 and got pregnant again, second cycle after the D+C. I am 44 years old and now I have a beautiful baby boy. Natural pregnancy!!!

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.
