Low sperm count, ovulation issues, endometriosis, issues with uterus or fallopian tubes, the inability of sperm to penetrate the cervical mucus, poor quality of the egg, genetic disease or any other unexplained fertility problems.
The first step involves injecting hormones so you can produce multiple eggs every month instead of one. Later, testing is done to determine if the egg is ready for retrieval.
Success rates depend on many factors such as the reason for infertility itself. Age is also an important factor.
Embryos that aren’t used during the first IVF attempt are frozen and can be used later. This saves you money if you are to undergo a second or third attempt. Unwanted embryos can be donated.
Reproductive medicine is the branch of medicine that specializes in diagnosing and treating infertility and other reproductive problems such as puberty, menopause, contraception, and sexual problems.
Egg freezing is the method of harvesting the eggs from the ovaries and freezing them to use later. This method is also called mature oocyte cryopreservation. It is usually done when the woman is not ready to become pregnant yet, but wants to get pregnant later. It is also done if you have some condition that affects your fertility.
Embryo banking is a type of fertility preservation in which a woman undergoes several IVF stimulation to form embryos that can be freezed for future use. It is a solution for women with older age and those with DOR who wish to minimize the effect of the biological clock.
Preimplantation genetic testing involves testing an embryo for chromosomal abnormalities. The cells are taken from an embryo and sent for genetic testing while the embryo is growing in the laboratory. There are several techniques to do the testing such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), microarray, and single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP).
Causes of infertility in men are:
Abnormal sperm production or function
Smoking and drinking alcohol
Certain genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis
Damage or injury to the reproductive organs
Causes of female infertility include:
Premature ovarian failure
Excess production of prolactin
Blocked fallopian tubes
The most common complication of infertility treatment is a multiple pregnancy resulting in twins, triplets, or more.
Ovulation is the part of the menstrual cycle. It occurs when an egg is released from the ovary which typically happens around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. The process of ovulation begins when the body releases follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), typically between 6 to 14 days of your menstrual cycle.
