Infertility, both women and men — one of the most important medical problems of modern society. Statistics disappointing: about 60-80 million people in the world can not have children. In Russia this is a problem for every 5 couples. But even in such a difficult situation, you can find a way out. Today, the most effective treatment for male and female infertility in vitro fertilization — IVF.
"Extracorporeal" translated from Latin means "outside the body", which explains the essence of technology — fertilization and early stages of embryo development take place in a test tube, and then after 2-5 days, they are transferred to the uterus to continue to develop in vivo. To date, with the help of IVF around the world came to light more than 5 million children every year and this number is increasing by tens of thousands.
Previously, IVF was performed only in the absence of both fallopian tubes in women. Currently there MOH solution, according to which a fertilization can be carried out if the infertility can not be cured by other methods, or in the case where the probability of successful IVF than other methods. This means that IVF can be carried out at the request of the couple with any form of infertility, both female and male, and the chances of becoming parents for many couples were significantly higher.
IVF process takes place in several stages:
The ovaries are stimulated by hormones. Drugs and doses are selected individually for each patient. This stage lasts 8-12 days, during which the woman is taking the prescribed dose of hormones and regularly screen (hormone levels and ultrasound). This allows the physician to evaluate the dynamics of the growth of follicles in the ovaries and endometrium readiness for pregnancy. Depending on the test results hormones administered dose may be increased or conversely, lowered. When the follicles reach the desired size, performed the final stage of the stimulation injection of hormones, it promotes the ripening egg and ovulation. During the entire period of stimulation a woman can lead a normal life.
For egg retrieval is performed puncture of follicles. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia, but in an outpatient setting. The whole process is painless and lasts 10-15 minutes. It consists of follicle aspiration through the vagina under ultrasound guidance. A few hours after the puncture of a woman can go home.
Semen is collected in a sterile container in a specially equipped room (through masturbation). If the spouse, for whatever reason, can not be present on the day of the puncture, used his pre-frozen sperm. In our clinic, you can use donor sperm, pre-selected based on race, physical ability, and blood group and Rh factor.
In the traditional artificial insemination each egg retrieval after a special treatment is placed in a test tube with a nutrient medium, there is placed a specially prepared sperm, and then together they are incubated at 37? C until fertilization. After 17-20 hours the embryologist will determine how many eggs fertilized and informs the patient.
Another method of fertilization — ICSI is the introduction of a single sperm into the cytoplasm of the egg.
The transfer to the uterus
Of the total number of embryos formed choose those that have the best performance and, therefore, more likely to settle down in a woman's body. These selected embryos are transferred into the uterus. Embryo transfer — a painless outpatient procedure, after which the woman needs a small 30 minute break and she can go home.
Support for early pregnancy
To maintain a pregnancy at an early stage of the doctor-patient reproductive system assigns certain hormones. 14 days after embryo transfer blood test for HCG — the pregnancy hormone. If the pregnancy, hormonal support is continued until 10-12 weeks. Otherwise, a woman stops taking the hormones and discussing with her about the repetition of the IVF program.
Percentage of pregnancy as a result of IVF depends on many factors, including the age of the woman. Pregnancy in women with infertility due to tubal occlusion at the age of 20-25 years, comes in 50% of cases, at the age of 35 years — in 20-25% of cases, and after 37 years, the chance of pregnancy is progressively reduced. Despite this, the WHO recognizes the most productive technology of IVF treatment for infertility.
