Services by IVF center

IVF center provides a comprehensive evaluation and accurate treatment plan that matches the needs of each individual husband or wife. The program contains the following services:

Examinations and diagnostics for the causes of infertility, including:

  • Analysis of thyroid and hypothalamic hormones and other glands (FSH LH Prolactin TSH AMH).
  • Hysterography with dye.
  • Saline Infusion Sonography
  • Seminal analysis.
  • Hormonal profile .
  • Ultrasound .

Assisted reproductive technology

  • Ovulation induction using medications and hormonal therapies.
  • Intrauterine insemination.
  • IVF (IVF and ICSI).
  • Embryo freezing.
  • Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis for genetic diseases.
  • Testicular and epidydimal surgical sperm extraction + sperm freezing .
    Explanation:In cases of the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate, spermatozoa can be extracted from the testis or Epididymis: procedure done by the urologist
    If spermatozoa are found, they can be frozen.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IU is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperms inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.

 

When is IUI used?

The most common reasons for IUI are mild low sperm count, ovulatory dysfunction, unexplained infertility, and Ejaculation dysfunction.

 

What’s the IUI PROCESS?

Before intrauterine insemination, ovulation-stimulating medications may be used, in which case careful monitoring with trans-vaginal ultrasound scans and blood tests will be necessary to determine when the eggs are mature. The IUI procedure will then be performed around the time of ovulation.

 

A semen sample will be prepared by the embryologist in the IVF laboratory. A catheter will then be used to insert the sperm directly into the uterus. This process maximizes the number of sperms that are placed in the uterus, thus increasing the possibility of conception.

 

IVF / ICSI

Definition

In vitro fertilization (IVF)/Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a one of the fertility

 

Treatments to help people with fertility problems have a baby.

 

Who Needs IVF/ ICSI?

IVF is indicated when the woman has blocked fallopian tubes, ovulatory problem, the husband has abnormal semen analysis or in a situation of unexplained subfertility.

 

Preparation for IVF / ICSI

The IVF Consultant will request some blood tests for both couple prior to starting the treatment cycle.

 

Once the women have her menstrual period, she should contact the hospital for an appointment to see the Consultant.

 

What’s the IVF/ ICSI process?

The first step in IVF is taking fertility medications for several days to help your ovaries produce several eggs that are mature and ready for fertilization. This is called controlled ovarian stimulation. You may get regular ultrasounds or blood tests to measure your hormone levels and keep track of follicular development.

 

Once your ovaries have produced follicles potential for enough mature eggs, your doctor removes the eggs from your body by egg retrieval procedure.

 

In the IVF laboratory, your eggs are mixed with your husband’s sperms— this is called insemination. For sperms that have lower motility, they may be injected directly into the eggs to promote fertilization the eggs and sperms are stored together in a special container, and fertilization happens… As the cells in the fertilized eggs divide and become embryo, the embryologist who work at the IVF laboratory monitor the progress and development of these embryos.

 

About 2-5 days after the egg retrieval, 1 or more embryos are put back into your uterus (this is called embryo transfer).

 

Once the embryo(s) has been transferred into your womb, you’ll need to wait 18 days after egg collection before taking a pregnancy test to see if the treatment has worked.

Embryo Freezing

What Is Embryo Freezing?

Embryo freezing (cryopreservation) is a method of preserving the viability of embryos. This is carried out in the laboratory using specialized freezing equipment and the embryos can then be safely stored for an extended period.

 

Who Needs Embryo Freezing?

Some couples will have excess good quality embryos following an IVF/ICSI treatment and these can be frozen and stored for the future transfer.

 

How does Embryo Freezing work?

These embryos can be thawed and transferred into the uterus in the future, avoiding the need to stimulate the ovaries again.

 

What does a frozen embryo transfer cycle actually involve?

Frozen embryo transfer cycles are relatively simple by using the woman’s natural cycle or a hormonally controlled cycle.This will be monitored by ultrasound to assess the development of the lining of the uterus and to determine the timing of embryo transfer.

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis can be used by people who have a serious inherited disease in their family to avoid passing it onto their children.

 

What is PGD?

PGD, also known as preimplantation genetic testing (PGT-M), is a treatment that involves checking the genes or chromosomes of your embryos for a specific genetic condition.

 

Because the embryos need to be tested in the IVF laboratory, you will need to have an IVF cycle, even if you and your husband have no fertility problems.

 

Embryos that have been tested and are free of the condition will be placed back into your womb to hopefully continue to develop.

 

Who can have PGD?

Your doctor may discuss PGD with you if:

  • you already have a child with a serious genetic condition and want to avoid this happening again
  • you have a family history of a serious genetic condition

 

Which genetic conditions can be tested for with PGD?

PGD can be used to test for almost any genetic condition where a specific gene is known to cause that condition

 

How safe is PGD?

The PGD treatment itself is thought to be safe – there is no evidence that babies born following PGD suffer from any more health or developmental problems than babies born using IVF alone.

Ovulation induction

What Is Ovulation Induction?

Ovulation induction is a fertility treatment that involves taking fertility medications to induce ovulation by encouraging eggs to develop in the ovaries and be released thus increasing the chance of conception through timed intercourse.

 

Who needs ovulation induction?

It is most suitable for women who have ovulatory problems but have patent fallopian tubes and the husband has a normal semen analysis

 

What’s the Ovulation Induction process?

  • Your ovaries are stimulated with fertility medications to promote the growth of follicles containing eggs.
  • Your cycle is monitored with frequent transvaginal ultrasound scans to check the number and size of follicles developing.
  • Near the time of ovulation, the IVF consultant will advise the most appropriate day to have sexual intercourse to maximize your chance of pregnancy.
