Infertility and Immunology: Dr. Geneviève Genest


Can infertility be treated successfully? Why does recurring infertility happen? One out of six Canadian couples experience fertility problems. While many become parents thanks to artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization, the usual treatments don’t seem to work for some. Dr. Geneviève Genest, immunologist and researcher at the Montreal General Hospital (MUHC) is on a mission to find out why. Along the way, she is helping a majority of couples who visit her clinic –one that is unique in Canada- get pregnant and have the family the always dreamed of.

Annie DeMelt speaks with Dr. Genest about why the immune system matters in pregnancy; and how certain blood molecules, such as immunoglobulin, can be a game changer for some couples.
