IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation)

A highly specialised and advanced assisted reproduction treatment method for couples who are not able to conceive, IVF or In Vitro Fertilisation is the process of fertilising the egg(s), outside the body, with the aid of technology. This mode of treatment is advised and adopted in couples who have the following issues:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Inefficacy/failure of other methods like fertility drugs and intrauterine insemination (IUI)
  • Fertility problems in the male partner
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Needs to use frozen sperm; but not a suitable candidate for IUI treatment
  • Presence of a genetic condition that calls for genetic testing (so that the problem is not passed on to the child)

Embryology

Embryo Cryopreservation/ Vitrification
Gametes and embryos are preserved/ frozen in personalised storage systems under -196 °C, for optimising survival and implantation post freezing, especially in unfavourable conditions like poor endometrium and hormone related problems.
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Frozen embryo from a previous fresh IVF cycle is thawed and transferred back to the uterus. This offers equal/ better pregnancy rates and also increases the cumulative pregnancy rates.

Blastocyst Culture & Transfer
The best quality embryos can be chosen and transferred in a controlled manner to increase pregnancy success rate and reduce multiple pregnancy risks.

Laser Assisted Hatching
Laser technology (Hamilton Thorne – FDA approved Lykos Suite) for hatching embryos in cases with history of recurrent IVF failure.

Fertility Preservation
Freezing and storage of eggs/ sperms for those undergoing major treatment (e.g. Cancer)/ wish to delay parenthood.
