IVF - Solution to Infertility

There are lots of women these days that are really having a hard time to enjoy their motherhood because of some health problems. But because of the technology, they are now able to experience the feeling of being a mother and being pregnant.

In-vitrofertilization- It is one of the most commonly used assisted reproductive treatments that involves the fertilization of an ovum in a laboratory dish, after which the embryos are transferred into the uterus of a woman.
There are five steps in the embryo transfer process:
1. The development of ripening eggs in the ovaries is observed
2. The eggs are collected
3. The sperms are collected
4. Eggs and sperm are kept together in the lab where they are given suitable conditions to fertilize, resulting in the initial growth of an embryo
5. The embryos are transferred into the uterus
The time of ripening of the eggs is controlled. To make better the chances of quality egg collection, fertility drugs are prescribed. Before the egg retrieval is done, an ultrasound of the ovaries is done to check egg development. A urine/ blood test is also done to measure the levels of hormone.
The Process of Egg Retrieval
The process takes place trans-vaginally where a hollow needle is guided by an ultrasound image. Eggs are removed from ovaries with the use of this needle, which is called follicular aspiration. One needs to take care of the perfect timing for this.
After retrieval, the eggs along with sperms are kept in the incubator for the fertilization process, which is checked upon at regular intervals for fertilization, cell division and formation of an embryo. The transfer usually happens within 2 - 3 days after egg retrieval, which is done by inserting a speculum into the vagina for exposing cervix (the neck of the womb). This is followed by a resting period, ultrasounds and blood tests to check possible pregnancy.

Getting Pregnant: Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) A Viable Option

Couples who find getting pregnant difficult have various options as far as increasing their chances of having a baby is concerned. Some of the medical interventions that women opt for are risky, while others are not as risky but usually prove to be not as effective. IUI is one of the methods through which one can increase the chances of getting pregnant. Many women have opted to have the procedure with most registering positive results. 

IUI is separation of good quality sperms from the semen and deposition of these sperms into the uterine cavity. The procedure selects sperms with better quality, avoids the harmful effects of acidic medium to the sperms and fascilitates the movement of sperms to the fallopiantubes where they can meet the oocyte.

IUI fertility treatment works by using a catheter to help insert cleaned sperm cell into the uterus. This technique improves the possibilities of sperm cell getting to the fallopian tubes, which will improve the possibility of fertilization.

How does IUI works?

           For women:

Step 1: If you use fertility drugs to stimulate ovulation, vaginal ultrasound scans are used to track the development of your eggs. As soon as an egg is mature, you are given a hormone injection to stimulate its release.
Step 2: The sperm are inserted 36 to 40 hours later. To do this, the doctor first insert a speculum into your vagina.

    For men:

Step 1.You will be asked to produce a sperm sample on the day the treatment takes place.

Step 2.The sperm are washed to remove the fluid surrounding them and the rapidly moving sperm separated out.
Step 3.The rapidly moving sperm are placed in a small catheter (tube) to be inserted into the womb.

Advantages :

The advantage of using IUI to get pregnant is that it is a less invasive procedure, especially when compared to other assisted reproduction technologies such as GIFT, ZIFT and IVF. This means that performing the procedure is likely to pose fewer risks to the woman who wants to get pregnant. It also means that there will almost be no need for long recovery periods within which pregnant women take to heal. This method is far cheaper than some other ART systems.
