Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) vs In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
October 27, 2021

In vitro fertilization (IVF) has given many a couples the chance to fulfil their dreams of having a family. The procedure of In vitro fertilization involves both medical and surgical approaches to conception. In this the eggs are fertilized outside a woman’s body and this requires several eggs to ensure the outcome is positive. To boost egg production there will also be medications spread across two weeks. On the whole the IVF process is certainly not a cakewalk and the process can be draining both mentally and physically. The technique has evolved quite a lot during the past four decades and some major advances have made the success rates improve dramatically. Let’s look at some of the best advances;

Frozen embryos – Embryos are being frozen to be thawed and transferred during a later monthly cycle. This has found to be offering better results as far as pregnancy and live birth is considered when compared to the results when fresh embryos are placed into a uterus stimulated with fertility drugs.

Genetic screening – From the traditional methods of embryo grading, the newest procedures of embryo biopsy and genetic analysis can help ensure that embryos that look good are also chromosomally perfect before being transferred. Having too many or too few chromosomes increase the risk of miscarriages or conditions like Down Syndrome.

Time-lapse imaging – This method has been helping embryologists figure out which embryo will give the best chance of a pregnancy.  In this process a special microscope used takes lots of images every 20 minutes as the embryo grows. They can then choose the best embryo without disturbing based on its rate of development.

VagIncubator – When the women are not to keen to have their fertilization to happen in a lab and want it to be more natural this is an option to consider. The egg and sperm are placed together inside the VagIncubator device, which is then placed in the vaginal cavity for fertilization and the formation of embryos.

PRP Ovarian Rejuvenation – This cutting-edge fertility procedure aims to re-awaken egg maturation and development within the ovary thereby improving egg quality. This could be used to achieve pregnancy in women with Low Ovarian Reserve, women with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (POI), and women with early menopause.

Ozone Sauna – Ozone has found to offer strong physiological benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial advantages. Ozone is believed to offer a wide range of fertility-boosting benefits especially for women attempting late pregnancies.

Cytoplasmic transfer – This breakthrough treatment option is ideal for older women who might be suffering from older and damaged cytoplasm and mitochondria in the egg cells as well as women with known mitochondrial DNA defects.

Human Growth Hormone – When used in the IVF cycle this improves the oocyte quality. The correct timing of the human growth hormone supplementation can give excellent results in terms of improved pregnancy rates.

Intralipid Infusion Therapy – An infusion of intralipids before and post embryo transfer protects the embryo against high level of natural killer cells that some women could have in their body. This is a method of lowering immune system response to the embryo by perceiving it as a “foreign object”. This is suitable for those with several failed IVF cycles as or recurrent miscarriages due to an overactive immune system.
