This is the type of ART (Assisted Reproductive Technique) which requires intense monitoring through knowledge and skills. We at Patankar Fertility Solutions are proud to claim consistent results of 40-50% per cycle in IVF-and ICSI treatment cycles.
After proper selection of the cases the female partner is given daily injections. The injections are given to develop adequate no. of eggs (at least 6-8) in the ovaries. The response to the injections, the growth of the follicles ( s) is monitored with the help of the USG and also blood tests and the doses are adjusted accordingly, if required.
Once the follicles attain adequate size, ovum pick-up (OPU) or oocyte retrieval (OR) is planned. The patient comes empty stomach on the day of the OPU and is discharged on the same day. OPU is done under general anaesthesia and under USG guidance. The eggs are aspirated using adequate negative pressure through the vagina under USG guidance.
The fluid is then scanned under the microscope and the eggs are separated from the other tissue material.
Simultaneously, the semen is processed so as to separate the most normal and motile sperms from the semen sample. Depending upon the nature of the treatment i.e. IVF or ICSI , the eggs are treated in different manner.
In IVF, the eggs and the sperms are cultured together inside the incubator for certain no. of hours. The sperm will fertilize the egg during this period.
The eggs are separated from their surroundings cells (cumulus and corona cells) and scanned under the microscope so as to check the fertilization.
