Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Assisted InseminationContact Clinic
Assisted insemination is a procedure used to help women, who are suffering from infertility, become pregnant. It can also be performed on women who would like to conceive a child without a male partner. There are two types of assisted insemination: intracervical insemination and intrauterine insemination. In an intracervical insemination procedure, the sperm is injected into the woman’s cervix using a needleless syringe. This procedure closely resembles the natural way of impregnating a woman through sexual intercourse. In an intrauterine insemination, sperm is injected directly into the uterus via a catheter. Spermatozoa, otherwise known as “washed sperm,” is used in this procedure to improve the chances of pregnancy.
Egg And Sperm DonationContact Clinic
Egg and sperm donation is an essential factor in in-vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technologies. The eggs are provided by healthy female donors, while sperm is normally obtained from male donors who have donated to a sperm bank. Donated eggs are used when a woman has a problem with her reproductive systems, such as diseases of the ovaries or is simply not producing enough eggs to become pregnant. If the woman’s reproductive system is healthy but the male partner’s reproductive system has problems or if she wants to conceive a child without having a male partner, sperm obtained from a sperm bank can be used.
Egg Freezing/ Fertility Preservation
Egg freezing or human oocyte cryopreservation in scientific terms, is a procedure that preserves the female eggs for later use in a variety of assisted reproductive technologies. The procedure begins by administering hormone injections to the patient to stimulate the ovaries. The ripened eggs are harvested through transvaginal oocyte retrieval method. These eggs contain a lot of water that can destroy the integrity of the egg when frozen. To prevent this from happening, the eggs are dehydrated using cryoprotectants that prevent ice crystals from forming. The eggs are then frozen using a slow-cooling process or an almost immediate freezing process called vitrification.
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) is a procedure that utilizes a woman’s embryos that were previously frozen through an embryo cryopreservation method in order for her to become pregnant. Prior to thawing the embryos, the woman will first undergo a prescreening procedure that includes tests for infectious diseases. She is then given injections of estrogen and progesterone for a certain period. Once the uterus is ready, the frozen embryos are thawed and transferred to a catheter. The catheter is then inserted into the uterus, and the embryos are deposited. In some cases, the transfer procedure is performed using ultrasound to ensure that the embryos are deposited correctly.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology that is performed by manually combining a sperm and an egg. The procedure is commonly used when either the man or woman or both have fertility problems and are unable to conceive through the natural means. IVF begins by inducing the ovaries to produce eggs. The eggs are collected through laparoscopy and then prepared to receive the sperm. Sperm is retrieved from the male partner or a sperm bank. The collected sperm is then manually injected into the egg and observed for fertilization. If fertilization is successful, the embryo is implanted into the woman’s uterus using a catheter. If there are concerns that any of the partners may be disease carriers, screening tests are performed on the embryo prior to implantation.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) procedure is usually performed when the male partner has problems releasing sperm making it difficult to get his partner pregnant. The sperm is collected through a small incision in the testicle, and the eggs are then retrieved from the woman while she is ovulating. If the woman has problems ovulating, the ovaries can be stimulated using follicle stimulating hormones. Once the eggs have matured, they are removed through laparoscopy and injected with a single sperm retrieved from the male partner. The eggs are observed for a few days to confirm fertilization. Once confirmed, the eggs are transferred directly to the woman’s uterus using a catheter. This procedure significantly increases the patient’s partner chances of conceiving.
Ovulation InductionContact Clinic
Ovulation induction is a procedure that stimulates the ovaries to produce eggs. This procedure is particularly helpful for women who are experiencing problems ovulating. Once the ovaries produce eggs, the chances of the woman conceiving a child through normal intercourse or artificial insemination greatly increase. The doctor will first need to confirm the woman’s ovulation cycle. She will then be required to start taking clomiphene citrate starting from day 4 of the menstrual cycle. Follicle Stimulating Hormone will also help the ovaries produce eggs. At day 14 of the cycle, an ultrasound test will be performed to confirm if the woman is due to ovulate.
Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis
Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure commonly used in assisted insemination to prevent diseases from being passed on to a child. PGD is usually performed if the woman is 35 years or older, has a history of miscarriage, is a known carrier of single gene disorders, or if the woman has at least one failed fertility treatment. The procedure is performed after an in vitro fertilization, wherein the egg is retrieved from a woman and fertilized. After dividing the embryo into eight cells, several tests are performed to find any problematic genes. If no problems are found, the embryo is implanted in the uterus via a catheter. Cells that contain problematic genes are destroyed.
