You will allow the stress associated with IVF to be melted by a vacation-like environment, in a beautiful city.
HOW DO WE APROACH THE INFERTILE COUPLE ? MALE Two or three sperm counts one month apart are ordered and evaluated. WHO (World Health Organization) and Krugers` criteria is used to analyze the sperm parameters. If the sperm count is abnormal, hormonal tests and ultrasound of the testes is performed. This way, hormonal and vascular problems may be detected. In male infertility however, medical and surgical therapies are getting less and less popular due to high failure rates. Therefore for male infertility, currently artificial insemination or IVF/ICSI is recommended, depending on sperm count results.
HOW DO WE APROACH THE INFERTILE COUPLE ? WOMEN We order FSH, LH, E2, PRL, and TSH hormon levels on the third day of the period. If these are normal, ovulations are monitored with ultrasound. If there is an ovulation problem it is treated by oral medications or hormonal injections, monitored by ultrasound. If the ovulation is normal, then Hysterosalpingography ( X-ray of the uterus and tubes) is performed to rule out the tubal blockage. If there is a problem with the tubes, laparoscopic correction is tried in certain cases. However, in recent years due to highly successful IVF/ICSI results, tubal surgery is performed less often
Summary of IVF –1 1. Stimulation of the eggs with drugs: Fertility medications are used to stimulate ovarian production and there is an attempt to obtain multiple eggs to increase the patient's chance of getting pregnant by fertilizing numerous eggs for embryo development. At this stage, the eggs developing in the ovaries are monitored with ultrasound and hormone testing and retrieved before they are released. 2. Retrieval of the eggs: The eggs are retrieved by inserting a special aspiration needle guided by ultrasound into the vagina. The patient is given light anesthesia. Once retrieved the eggs are placed in special receptacles in a laboratory environment. Special methods are used to fertilize the eggs with sperm taken that same day from the from the woman's husband.
Summary of IVF -2 3. Fertilization of the eggs and embryo development: The eggs are fertilized in the laboratory with sperm using the microinjection method. Then the embryo is allowed to develop for a period of time, after which the highest grade embryos are chosen for placement in the mother's womb. 4. Transfer of the embryo to the mother's womb: The chosen embryos are transferred to the mother's womb with a special catheter, after which one must wait and see if they attach to the womb and pregnancy develops.
Summary of IVF -3 5. Luteal follow-up: In order to assist pregnancy development, the patient will be given medications containing progesterone after the embryo transfer. Ultrasound and hormone tests will be administered once a week. Whether or not pregnancy has occurred will be determined by testing for the bHCG hormone in the blood on the 12th day after the embryo transfer.
