IVF and other Infertility Treatment options at our Network Infertility Centres in India

ThumbInfertility is the inability of a couple to conceive a child. A couple may be facing infertility problem if, after two years of regular sexual intercourse, without contraception, the woman has not become pregnant. If a couple had a child before then it is called as primary infertility. Secondary infertility is failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy. Infertility may be caused by infection in the man or woman, but often there is no obvious underlying cause. Roughly Infertility affects upto 15% of couples, who are unable to have children. Latest and advanced techniques of Assisted Reproduction have been developed in recent years which have made it possible to treat almost all forms of infertility.

Services offered by our Network Infertility Treatment centres in India

Counselling

Counselling is the first step and forms a very important part in the treatment of infertility. Counselling is very helpful for the couple to understand the causes of their infertility and also the investigations and testing that they have to undergo before the treatment. During counselling session the treatment process is discussed and also about the realistic results that can be expected from the treatment. Counselling helps patients to be informed and feel very comfortable during their treatment.

Hymenectomy

A minor surgical procedure called Hymenectomy (hymenotomy) is sometimes performed. This procedure involves the surgical removal or opening of the hymen. Hymenectomy procedure is carried out to treat imperforate hymen or other situations where the hymen is unusually thick or rigid in order to allow normal menstruation or sexual intercourse. Imperforate hymen can lead to hematometra or hematocolpos.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction helps immensely to achieve pregnancy in patients who do not ovulate properly. There are some medicines to treat this condition which will be prescribed by the doctor after thorough investigation and testing.

Endoscopy

Endoscopic techniques like Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy are used to see the interior of the uterus (uterine cavity). Through these techniques, the fallopian tubes and any other pathology such as intrauterine septum, polyps, fibroids, adhesions can been seen as well as treated. This means that a variety of conditions can not only be diagnosed but also treated at the same time. These techniques help to check the patency of fallopian tubes, ovarian cauterization/drilling, removal of fibroids using myomectomy procedure, removal of polyps using polypectomy procedure, adhesiolysis, treatment of endometriosis and before IVF/ICSI treatment.

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) is a method by which processed semen is placed directly in the uterus of the woman with the help of a catheter. IUI can be done in a natural cycle, however, to get better results, it is usually preceded by ovulation induction / ovarian stimulation using appropriate fertility enhancing drugs. The partner's semen is collected and processed to remove the unwanted cells and abnormal sperms so as to separate the most normal and the most motile sperms. This takes approximately 1-1 1/2 hrs. The semen concentrate is inseminated with the help of a special catheter inside the uterus. The procedure is simple though the success rate is not very high (15 -20 % per cycle). This IUI may have to be repeated 4-5 times. Sometimes donor semen may also be used. Donor semen is used for IUI where the partner has poor quality of semen parameters or have had repeated failures. The donors of semen at our network infertility treatment centres in India are the voluntary donors from a good economical and social background. These donors are thoroughly investigated before accepting them as the donors.

In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In-vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one of the types of Artificial Reproductive Techniques which requires intense monitoring thorough knowledge and skills. Commonly known as "Test Tube Baby", IVF means fertilization of an ovum outside the body and consequently transfer of the fertilized ova or embryo into the uterus of the woman.IVF is probably the most widely practiced assisted conception procedure in the world. The procedure does not need admission at any step and is conducted on outpatient basis. In this technique the ovarian stimulation is done by hormonal injections to produce multiple eggs. Continuous monitoring of the response by ultrasound scans and blood tests is done. After this step the egg retrieval with the help of a needle is generally carried out under local / general anesthesia. The fertilization of the eggs is carried out in the laboratory. Once the eggs are fertilized, the transfer of the resulting embryo(s) into the uterus of the woman takes place. Blood test is performed approximately 15 days after embryo transfer to assess the establishment of pregnancy. If the treatment procedure is successful, one or more embryos will be implanted in the uterus and the pregnancy will result, just as it happens in the natural process of conception.

Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI is the technological breakthrough in the field of IVF which is used to overcome the inability of sperm to fertilise an egg which may be either due to sub-optimal sperm parameters, oocyte defects or other reasons (anti sperm antibodies). The eggs are first cleared off their surrounding cells (cumulus and corona cells) and checked for their maturity. Only the mature eggs are then selected for ICSI. ICSI is done with the help of a machine called micro-manipulator and the process is called micro-manipulation. In this technique a single sperm is directly injected into cytoplasm of an egg in order to achieve fertilisation. ln some cases when there is a complete absence of sperm in the ejaculate, sperm can be retrieved from the testis /epididymis and used for ICSI. The testicular/ epididymal sperm retrieval techniques are-PESA (Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration), MESA (Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration), TESA (Testicular Sperm Aspiration) & TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction).

The eggs are then incubated for some hours and then scanned under the microscope,so as to check how many are fertilized. Then the fertilized eggs are again cultured inside the incubator. They are scanned daily to see if their growth is adequate or not. The steps involved in ICSI procedure are exactly the same as for IVF, except that fertilization is achieved with the help of a micromanipulator.

Embryos Freezing

The best embryos are selected and transferred into the uterine cavity by a special catheter made only for the embryo transfer (ET). Excess or Surplus embryos can be Cryo-preserved at the ultra low temperatures for many years. These frozen embryos can be used subsequently without the need for ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval. However the pregnancy rate following transfer of frozen embryos is lower than that with fresh embryos.

Cryopreservation

A good cryopreservation programme is very necessary in order to increase the success rate of Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART). In cryopreservation the eggs , sperms and the embryos are freezed at -196°C in the liquid nitrogen still preserving their fertility potential. These can used to achieve pregnancy when needed. Our network infertility treatment centers in India have the facility of freezing for semen, testicular tissue, embryos zygotes, blastocyst and eggs .Utmost care is taken while preserving the sample at -196°C.

Egg Donation

The use of the donor eggs is used when the female partner is unable to produce her eggs or when there is poor response to ovarian stimulation or poor quality of eggs or in case of repeated IVF/ICSI failures.

Embryo Donation

Embryo donation can be considered as adoption before birth and offered to those couples who have repeated IVF/ICSI failures. Either fresh or donor embryos are used with equally good success rates in both. Embryo donation can be considered in patients who have azoospermia or severely abnormal semen as well as very poor quality eggs. Embryo donation has definite advantage over adoption in that the patient carries the baby in her own womb & hence the mother can experience pregnancy has more attachment to baby.

Surrogacy

Surrogacy is an arrangement between a woman (surrogate) and a couple or individual to carry and deliver a baby. Women who choose surrogacy may have significant damage to her uterus or have health conditions that prevent her form carrying a pregnancy. A couple can go for traditional or gestational surrogacy. The advantage of gestational surrogacy to the parents is that the embryo is created from their own gametes, so the baby delivered will be biologically theirs. Where as in traditional surrogacy the semen is either inseminated or used for IVF/ICSI. Thus in the traditional surrogate the eggs are contributed by the surrogate. The gestational surrogate carries the embryo produced from an IVF cycle using the eggs and sperm from the intended mother and father. A child conceived using a gestational surrogate is therefore created by using the genetic material from both of the intended parents and not from the surrogate.
