A condition of having no sperm present in the ejaculate (SEMEN).
Male germ cells derived from the haploid secondary SPERMATOCYTES. Without further division, spermatids undergo structural changes and give rise to SPERMATOZOA.
An assisted fertilization technique consisting of the microinjection of a single viable sperm into an extracted ovum. It is used principally to overcome low sperm count, low sperm motility, inability of sperm to penetrate the egg, or other conditions related to male infertility (INFERTILITY, MALE).
Mature male germ cells derived from SPERMATIDS. As spermatids move toward the lumen of the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES, they undergo extensive structural changes including the loss of cytoplasm, condensation of CHROMATIN into the SPERM HEAD, formation of the ACROSOME cap, the SPERM MIDPIECE and the SPERM TAIL that provides motility.
A condition of suboptimal concentration of SPERMATOZOA in the ejaculated SEMEN to ensure successful FERTILIZATION of an OVUM. In humans, oligospermia is defined as a sperm count below 20 million per milliliter semen.
The process of germ cell development in the male from the primordial germ cells, through SPERMATOGONIA; SPERMATOCYTES; SPERMATIDS; to the mature haploid SPERMATOZOA.

Conventional in-vitro fertilization versus intracytoplasmic sperm injection in sibling oocytes from couples with tubal infertility and normozoospermic semen. (1/1446)

An auto-controlled study was conducted in couples with tubal infertility and normozoospermic semen. The fertilization rates and embryonic development in sibling oocytes treated, using the same semen sample, either by conventional in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) at the same time were compared. Sibling oocyte-cumulus complexes (OCC) of 56 different couples with tubal infertility and normozoospermic semen were randomly divided in order of retrieval into two groups inseminated either by conventional IVF or by ICSI. Of the retrieved OCC in the same cohort, 53.0 +/- 31.2 and 62.0 +/- 26.6% showed two distinct pronuclei after conventional IVF and ICSI respectively (not significant). Complete fertilization failure occurred after conventional IVF in 12.5% (7/56 couples). After ICSI, the comparable figure was 3.6% (2/56). The number of cases was too small to apply a statistical test to this difference. Total cleavage rates were quite similar: 86.7 +/- 28.0 and 90.1 +/- 21% of the zygotes developed into transferable embryos after IVF and ICSI respectively (not significant). Similarly, no difference in embryo quality was observed. Although injection and insemination of the oocytes were performed at the same time in the two groups, at 42 h post-insemination more embryos were at the four-cell stage after ICSI (P < 0.001) than after conventional IVF, where more embryos were still at the two-cell stage (P < 0.02). Embryo transfer was possible in all 56 couples, resulting in 16 positive serum human chorionic gonadotrophin tests (28.6% per embryo transfer), from which a clinical pregnancy resulted in 15 couples. The best embryos were selected for transfer independently of the insemination procedure, but preferably from the same origin. There appeared to be no difference in implantation potency of the embryos obtained with either technique after the non-randomized transfers.  (+info)

The best donor. (2/1446)

Oocyte donation has become a common treatment modality for a large spectrum of infertility conditions. The purpose of this study was to assess the success rate of a shared egg donation programme, and to define the profile of a successful 'donor-recipient' couple in view of the limitations imposed by the shared programme. The results of all consecutive cycles of egg donation from 1st January 1995 to 31st December 1996 were analysed. A total of 383 donor cycles were matched with 946 recipient cycles; clinical pregnancy rates were 23. 5 and 16.7% respectively. With the exception of endometriosis, which significantly reduced the pregnancy rate in both groups, similar pregnancy rates were obtained in both groups for all the other infertility aetiologies of the donors. The donor's age had no impact on pregnancy rate of the recipient, but pregnancy rate was significantly decreased in donors >35 years. Recipients >50 years had significantly reduced pregnancy rates and those >45 years a significantly increased abortion rate. Recipients with severe male factor infertility, who had intracytoplasmic sperm injection treatment, showed pregnancy rates equivalent to those recipients who had regular in-vitro fertilization. We conclude that in a shared egg donation programme, the recipients' pregnancy rate and outcome are dependent only on the donors' infertility aetiologies and on recipients' ages.  (+info)

Failure of fertilization after intracytoplasmic sperm injection in a patient with Kartagener's syndrome and totally immotile spermatozoa: case report. (3/1446)

Patients with Kartagener's syndrome (KS) are invariably infertile with totally immotile spermatozoa. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is considered to be the treatment of choice for patients with immotile spermatozoa. We report the second KS case in the literature from whom immotile spermatozoa from the ejaculate failed to fertilize mature oocytes after ICSI. The role of micromanipulation in the treatment of KS patients is discussed.  (+info)

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection: position of the polar body affects pregnancy rate. (4/1446)

A prospective study on intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) was performed to evaluate the effect of the position of the polar body relative to the opening of the injection needle during sperm injection, and of the person who performs the injections on fertilization, cleavage, and pregnancy rates. This study included 173 couples undergoing 313 ICSI cycles from September 1995 to December 1997. All injections were performed by two persons. For each injected oocyte the person who performed the injection was recorded as well as the position of the polar body during injection (6 o'clock: animal pole towards the opening of the needle; 12 o'clock: animal pole away from the opening of the needle). Of 2630 oocytes retrieved, 2232 were injected. Significantly more oocytes developed two pronuclei after injection with the polar body at 6 o'clock versus 12 o'clock (P = 0.01; 51 versus 45% respectively) and after injection by person 1 versus person 2 (P = 0.02; 50 and 45% respectively). Higher pregnancy rate (P = 0.046) was found after transfer of embryos from oocytes injected with the polar body at 6 o'clock (36%) versus 12 o'clock (18%). This was the result of a significant interaction (P = 0.03) between the position of the polar body and the person performing the injections. Given the higher fertilization rate in the 6 o'clock group, it is recommended that oocytes be injected with the polar body at 6 o'clock. The higher pregnancy rate as a result of polar body position and the interaction between polar body position and the operator suggest variations in injection technique.  (+info)

Prevention of twin pregnancy after in-vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection based on strict embryo criteria: a prospective randomized clinical trial. (5/1446)

A prospective randomized study comparing single embryo transfer with double embryo transfer after in-vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) was carried out. First, top quality embryo characteristics were delineated by retrospectively analysing embryos resulting in ongoing twins after double embryo transfer. A top quality embryo was characterized by the presence of 4 or 5 blastomeres at day 2 and at least 7 blastomeres on day 3 after insemination, the absence of multinucleated blastomeres and <20% cellular fragments on day 2 and day 3 after fertilization. Using these criteria, a prospective study was conducted in women <34 years of age, who started their first IVF/ICSI cycle. Of 194 eligible patients, 110 agreed to participate of whom 53 produced at least two top quality embryos and were prospectively randomized. In all, 26 single embryo transfers resulted in 17 conceptions, 14 clinical and 10 ongoing pregnancies [implantation rate (IR) = 42.3%; ongoing pregnancy rate (OPR) = 38.5%] with one monozygotic twin; 27 double embryo transfers resulted in 20 ongoing conceptions with six (30%) twins (IR = 48.1%; OPR = 74%). We conclude that by using single embryo transfer and strict embryo criteria, an OPR similar to that in normal fertile couples can be achieved after IVF/ICSI, while limiting the dizygotic twin pregnancy rate to its natural incidence of <1% of all ongoing pregnancies.  (+info)

Pronuclear orientation, polar body placement, and embryo quality after intracytoplasmic sperm injection and in-vitro fertilization: further evidence for polarity in human oocytes? (6/1446)

Three hypotheses were tested: (i) the distance between first and second polar bodies (PB) may relate to embryo morphology, (ii) that the orientation of pronuclei (PN) relative to PB may relate to embryo morphology, (iii) that the placement of a spermatozoon in a fixed plane relative to the first PB [intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)] may alter PN/PB orientation relative to in-vitro fertilization (IVF). A total of 251 two pronuclear (2PN) embryos (124 ICSI, 127 IVF) from 64 patients was studied. Angles were measured between the PN axis and the nearest PB (alpha), the furthest PB (beta), and between the two PB (gamma). On day 2, the morphological grades of embryos were recorded. gamma ranged from 0 to 150 degrees and was not significantly different for ICSI or IVF embryos of different grades; however, an unusual distribution of gamma suggested different populations of oocytes. The first hypothesis was rejected. alpha and beta ranged from 0 to 90 degrees : alpha did not relate significantly to embryo grade, but beta increased significantly with decreasing quality of ICSI embryos (P < 0.05) and the total group (P < 0.01), supporting hypothesis (ii). The difference in beta between ICSI and IVF embryos was not significant, so hypothesis (iii) was unproven. Significant differences between ICSI and IVF embryos in PN positions, irregular cleavage, and cleavage failure were noted.  (+info)

Obstetric outcome of pregnancies after the transfer of cryopreserved and fresh embryos obtained by conventional in-vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection. (7/1446)

This study reports the obstetric outcome of pregnancies obtained after the transfer of cryopreserved or fresh embryos where the initial procedure was standard in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Pregnancies obtained after frozen IVF (n = 245) or frozen ICSI (n = 177) were compared with a control group of pregnancies after fresh embryo transfer in standard IVF (n = 245) and ICSI (n = 177) cycles were selected as controls. The controls were matched according to maternal age, parity and date of embryo transfer. In the standard IVF group, the biochemical pregnancy rates in the cryopreserved and fresh groups were 18.8 and 9.8% respectively (P < 0.01). In the ICSI group, the biochemical pregnancy rates in the cryopreserved and fresh groups were 16.4 and 6.8% respectively (P < 0.01). The miscarriage rates were comparable between the cryopreserved and fresh groups. However, in the frozen ICSI group the miscarriage rate (26.0%) was significantly higher than in the frozen conventional IVF group (13.1%) (P = 0.001). The frequencies of preterm deliveries, infants with very low birthweight and intrauterine deaths were similar in the groups. The low birthweight rates in the frozen IVF (16.1%) and ICSI (12.1%) groups were significantly lower than those in the fresh IVF (32.2%) and ICSI (32.7%) groups (P < 0.001). The major malformation rates in the frozen IVF (2.4%) and ICSI (2.9%) groups were not different from the major malformation rates in the fresh IVF (4.5%) and ICSI (2.4%) groups. In conclusion, the cryopreservation process had no negative impact on the outcome of pregnancies over 20 weeks of gestation. Long-term follow-up studies are needed in order to prove the safety of the freezing-thawing process.  (+info)

Genetic sonography as the preferred option of prenatal diagnosis in patients with pregnancies following intracytoplasmic sperm injection. (8/1446)

The option of prenatal diagnosis with nuchal translucency measurement at 10-14 weeks of gestation and second trimester targeted ultrasound including fetal echocardiography (genetic sonography) is reported in patients after intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). From January 1995 to December 1998, 153 consecutive patients, with a mean age of 32.3 years (+/-4.1) and 29. 6% >/= 35 years, who had become pregnant after ICSI, were studied. They attended our unit for first and second trimester sonography. Of these, 67.8% of primigravid and 80.9% of nulliparous women were included. Multiple pregnancy rate was 19.7%; 189 fetuses were screened in total. Due to the introduction of genetic sonography in 1995, the rate of invasive prenatal diagnosis decreased from 74% in 1995, to 48, 36 and 19% in 1996, 1997, and 1998 respectively. Two inherited numerical and structural chromosomal anomalies in clinically healthy children at birth (1.0%) and four major malformations in all liveborn children and late abortions (2.1%) were recorded. The results demonstrate that especially in women of advanced reproductive age with a long history of infertility, detailed genetic sonography may be a reasonable and highly accepted alternative to avoid even the relatively low risks associated with invasive screening procedures.  (+info)

Objective In frozen and thawed embryos, the zona pellucida (ZP) can be damaged due to hardening. Laser-assisted hatching (LAH) of embryos can increase the pregnancy rate. This study compared thinning and drilling of the ZP before frozen embryo transfer (FET). Methods Patients were randomly allocated into two groups for LAH using thinning or drilling on day 2 after thawing. Twenty-five percent of the ZP circumference and 50% of the ZP thickness was removed in the thinning group, and a hole 40 µm in diameter was made in the drilling group. Results A total of 171 in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection FET cycles, including 85 cycles with drilling LAH and 86 cycles with thinning LAH, were carried out. The thinning group had a similar β-human chorionic gonadotropin-positive rate (38.4% vs. 29.4%), implantation rate (16.5% vs. 14.4%), clinical pregnancy rate (36.0% vs. 25.9%), miscarriage rate (5.8% vs. 2.4%), ongoing pregnancy rate (30.2% vs. 23.5%), and multiple pregnancy rate ...

Introduction. Low ovarian response to stimulation protocol in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is frustrating to physicians and patients especially when the initial evaluation seems to be fair. Regarding this emerging problem, different measures usually taken trying to rescue the cycle and avoid cancelation. It was estimated that about 9-18% of cycles result in this low response with small number of follicles and low estradiol level.1. The term poor responder has been used to determine women who require large doses of stimulation medications and who make less than an optimal number of eggs. The definition of low responders differs from center to other, but the most used one is that less than four dominant follicles on day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) administration.2. The occurrence of low response to ovarian stimulation is usually suspected in old age, although it could occur at any age. Ovarian reserve is the main factor affecting response to stimulation, it could be assessed ...

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a process requiring only one single sperm to be injected into each egg. It is considered by many to be the greatest advance for the treatment of male infertility.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) has revolutionized the treatment of male-factor infertility. The ideal treatment, when surgical and medical management fails to improve sperm function, is in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (IVF/ET), usually accompanied by Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). It allows men who were previously incapable of producing adequate sperm, to father genetically related children. ICSI involves the placement of a single sperm directly into the egg using a microscopic pipette.. Men normally produce millions of sperm in each ejaculate. Sperm swim through the cervical opening and into the tubes to the site of fertilization. Some men have sperm defects such as a reduced sperm count, deformed sperm, or sperm that cannot swim effectively. When any one of these abnormalities is present, it can prevent normal fertilization.. ICSI bypasses sperm defects because a single sperm is selected and placed inside the egg. ICSI is performed as a part of the IVF ...

The incidence of ICSI cycles containing at least one fragmented oocyte was 3.3% (93/2,844). Twelve patients were represented more than once in these 93 index cycles. Only the first cycles (n = 81) were included, of which 28 contained fragmented oocytes at cumulus stripping, 48 at fertilization check, and five at both. Compared with matched controls, index cycles had fewer good-quality embryos available for transfer (18.8% vs. 32.1%) and significantly lower rates of implantation (20.3% vs. 32.7%), clinical pregnancy (33.3% vs. 58.0%), and ongoing delivery (29.6% vs. 49.4%). The cumulative ongoing delivered rate was also significantly lower for index cycles (32.1% vs. 55.6%), with no difference in the percentage of cycles with cryopreserved embryos remaining at study conclusion (13.5% vs. 23.5%).. Conclusion(s): ...
Recently a novel method based on horizontal sperm migration in injection dishes has been introduced as an additional tool for preparation of semen sample in assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures. In the present study, we evaluated both timing and reproductive outcomes in a randomized controlled study including 1034 intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) procedures followed by fresh embryo transfer. Couples enrolled were divided into two sub-groups, namely conventional swim-up method (Group A), and horizontal sperm migration in injection dishes (Group B). No significant differences were found between groups with respect to fertilization rate, implantation success, clinical pregnancy outcomes and ongoing pregnancies. On the contrary, both cleavage and blastocyst rates were statistically higher in Group B, suggesting superior efficiency and safety of this innovative technique also including time-saving and cheaper costs as compared to the classical swim-up sperm preparation.

Researchers from universities in Scotland and England say that they have developed a new, highly accurate assessment for couples hoping to have a child through in-vitro fertilization (IVF).. The experimental model, which was created by Scott Nelson from the University of Glasgow in Scotland and Debbie Lawlor from the University of Bristol in England, is currently available online and will soon be released as a smartphone app as well. The prediction model is also discussed in a paper published this week by the journal Public Library of Science (PLoS) Medicine.. The new IVF prediction model provides a more accurate and contemporary assessment of likely outcomes after IVF than a previously established model, partly because the new model includes intracytoplasmic sperm injection outcomes, the PLoS said in a Tuesday press release. According to an article by Kate Kelland of Reuters, Nelson and Lawlor studied more than 144,000 IVF cycles while preparing their prediction model, and using those ...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the impact of seropositivity with hepatitis C virus (HCV) on in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective, case-controlled study. SETTING: Fertility clinic of academic hospital. PATIENT(S): 42 IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles in HCV-seropositive women and 84 matched control cycles. INTERVENTION(S): IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection treatment for infertility. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Ovarian response to stimulation, laboratory findings, and implantation and pregnancy rates. RESULT(S): Absence of ovarian response was statistically significantly higher for HCV-seropositive women compared with controls (10/42 vs 5/84 cycles, respectively). For cycles with oocyte retrieval, HCV-seropositive women required more gonadotropin units compared with controls. The maximum estradiol levels and number of collected oocytes were similar, but HCV-seropositive women had statistically significantly fewer embryos available compared with controls. Embryo morphologic ...

Male infertility refers to a condition where a male is unable to impregnate a fertile female. Male infertility is caused due to deficiencies in his semen. A mans fertility depends on both the quality and quantity of his sperm. The total number of sperm a man ejaculates is important as a low sperm count is one of the major reasons that accounts for him failing to initiate a pregnancy.. Other major causes of male infertility include the failure of the testes to make sperm, sperm transport problems, and low levels of hormones made in the pituitary gland. IVF is a remedy for male infertility as it provides a platform for intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection, a laboratory technique procedure that is used in the treatment of various infertility problems. This technique enhances the fertilization phase by injecting a single sperm into a mature egg and has proven to be extremely effective in allowing a female to conceive after insertion into the uterus.. ...

Several studies reported that elevated E2 may have a detrimental effect on endometrial receptivity and embryo. This conflict was the starting point of our study. The investigators thought that this luteal decrease in E2 level could be prevented by adding estradiol just before the receptivity window is open, instead of adding earlier in the luteal phase which could result in defective embryo implantation ...
For Dr. Dhanabhagyam, who has delivered over a 1,000 IVF babies in the past decade, it was a fulfilling moment to deliver 20 IVF babies on a single day. She performed 12 caesarean section operations nearly without a break between 5 am to 10 pm.. The mothers are between ages 35 and 51 and suffer either from lack of eggs, ovarian failure or defective fallopian tubes. All the eggs were fertilized through the now popular ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection) technique, in which the sperm is directly injected into each egg. With their babies snuggled in their arms, unmindful of the media glare, all the 12 mothers left the hospital on Tuesday. ...

Analysis of the longest running ICSI programme in the United States has found reassuring evidence that babies born from frozen embryos fertilised via ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) do just as well as those born from frozen embryos fertilised via standard IVF treatment. The researchers also compared babies born as a result of cycles in which the women had additional hormone medication with babies born as a result of unmedicated, natural cycles, and, although they found a slightly higher rate of malformations in babies born from medicated cycles, the difference was small - 2.2% versus 0.4%. Ms Queenie Neri, a research associate at Cornell University (New York, USA) and a member of the team headed by Professor Gianpiero Palermo who pioneered ICSI in 1992, told the 25th annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Amsterdam today (Monday) that she and her colleagues had looked at all births from frozen embryos, conceived via ICSI or IVF, between 1993 and ...

AU - Lloyd, Kevin C K. PY - 2009/8. Y1 - 2009/8. N2 - Although the derivation of mice by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) using freeze-dried sperm has been demonstrated previously, a comprehensive analysis of their viability, health, and fertility has not. The purpose of the present study was to determine the extent to which ICSI using freeze-dried sperm stored at 4 C for 12 months from mice on either an inbred (C57BL/6J) or hybrid (B6D2F1/J) genetic background results in genomic instability and/or phenotypic abnormality in mice and two generations of their progeny. Fertilization rates (number of 2-cells per injected oocytes) using ICSI of fresh and freeze-dried sperm were similar within and between mouse strains, although fewer freeze-dried sperm-derived embryos than fresh sperm-derived embryos ...

PICSI dish and Spermslow media are both designed for sperm selection prior to intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). They are both based on the hyaluronan-sperm binding assay but with different protocols. The former is coated with solid hyaluronan while the latter is the liquid status hyaluronan. Mature sperm tend to lose its progrssive motility when meet hyaluronan while immature ones dont. Sibling oocytes collected from each participating patient will be randomly allocated into the PICSI (control) and Spermslow (treatment) groups. Prepared sperm sample will be split and then undergo either selection methods (control or treatment group) prior to ICSI. Selected sperm from each group will be used for ICSI with sibling oocytes. After injection, comparisons will be made on ferilisation rate, time post ICSI insemination to reach syngamy, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8-cell stages (t2,t3,t4,t5,t6,t7,t8)(hours), and implantation results after transfer of embryos. Only one-off intervention is involved at the ...
For couples who end up needing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in order to conceive, learning about the process can be overwhelming. There are preparations, medications, costs, injections, tests to learn about - a whole new world of procedural aspects and terminology you probably wouldnt have otherwise known about. For many couples, one component of their IVF plan-of-attack they may need to familiarize themselves with is ICSI. ICSI (short for intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is a fertilization technique that was developed more than twenty years ago, to best bypass certain issues with sperm and/or fertilization during an IVF cycle. How ICSI helps couples with male factor or unexplained infertility.
For women between the ages of 38 and 42 - I believe that placing them on the fast-track to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment is the best course of action. Why does this matter? Moving past other first-line alternative treatments - such as Timed Intercourse and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) - and going straight to IVF has been proven to increase an older womans chances of conceiving faster. Look: IVF saves older couples from the financial, physical, and emotional stress of repeated failed infertility treatment cycles. Plus: IVF offers those couples suffering from male factor infertility the benefits of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - the direct injection of healthy sperm into an egg for fertilization in vitro. Double Plus: IVF is a means of having an older couples embryos graded for health through genetic screening, such as PGD and/or PGS/NGS technology. ...
If drug therapies and surgery do not resolve a couples fertility issues, the next step may be treatments known as assisted reproductive technologies (ART).. While there are no guarantees with these fertility treatments, the success rates are encouraging.. Under the leadership of the IVF Medical Directors of Canada, all IVF clinics in Canada voluntarily submit their IVF outcome data to the Canadian Assisted Reproductive Technologies Register (CARTR). Live birth rates were reported for a combined total of 14,861 IVF/ICSI treatment cycles undertaken in 34 of 36 IVF centres in Canada in 2013.. ...

About 15% of infertile men have no sperm in their semen (azoospermia), because the sperm producing cells in the testes either did not develop or have been irreversibly destroyed (Primary Seminiferous Tubal Failure). This may be caused by chromosomal or genetic disorders, inflammation of the testes or treatment with certain drugs. It may also be associated with failure of the testes to descend into the scrotum during childhood. For couples in this category who wish to have a family, Dr Barak will perform a testicular biopsy. testicular biopsy is a reasonable primary approach. If sperm can be retrieved, it can be used for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with in vitro fertilisation (IVF) also performed by Dr Barak.. Failing that, the use of donor insemination or adoption are probably the only options of couples in this category to achieve their own family.. Testicular Biopsy. Testicular biopsies are necessary to assess spermatogenesis in men with presumed genital tract obstruction. A ...
An online calculator that predicts a couples individualised chances of conceiving, after a single cycle of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment and over a course of cycles, has been created by researchers using data from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority register, The BMJ reports.1. The researchers included data on 113 873 women who underwent 184 269 complete IVF or ICSI cycles using their own eggs and their partners sperm from 1999 to 2008. Of these women, 33 154 (29.1%) had a live birth … ...
D) In-Vitro fertilization (IVF) / Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In IVF, generally, more eggs / oocytes are needed . To achieve this, ovarian function to produce egg/oocyte will be taken-over by the fertility doctor. They are many ways of doing this, but more common methods are highlighted below.. Long down regulation protocol: In this method , a medicine called gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist(GnRH agonist) is injected from Day 21 of menses (down regulation phase). This medication will suppress the ovarian function. Once the womans next menstrual cycle starts, blood tests and ultrasound scan of the pelvis will generally be done. Once the woman is down-regulated, FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) injections to grow the follicles will be started (stimulation phase). Stimulation phase may last for about 7-12 days, in average 9-10 days.. b ) Antagonist protocol : t is generally started on day 2 of menses. FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) injections to grow the follicles ...
What comes next can be a blur. First, you meet with the clinics financial counselor to assess whether you have enough money for a complex, invasive $15,000-$20,000 IVF cycle. What follows are drug injections, blood tests, invasive ultrasounds, surgical egg retrieval, and fertilization ahead of an embryo transfer. Before your first hormone shot, youre well into head-spinning, unfamiliar territory.. Then the doctor tells you there are add-ons you might want to consider.. Might you have interest in endometrial scratching? What about vasodilation, human growth hormones, intralipids, assisted hatching, oocyte activation, physiological intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or embryo glue? Post-fertilization, there is also embryo pre-implantation genetic testing to consider. Interested?. These extras come with price tags ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars. All are presented as ways to increase your chances of a pregnancy. What are you willing to try? What can you afford? The ball is in your ...
Assisted reproduction has been controversial since the introduction of insemination in the 1930s.. When Louise Brown was born in 1978, and subsequently Mona Susanne Tetlie in Norway in 1984, attempts at treating infertility had been in place for a long time, and included surgical and pharmacological treatment.. However, the development of techniques like in vitro fertilisatiion (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) were revolutionary because these techniques opened up for the production and reproduction of life outside the human body. These new ways of producing, administering and storing life makes it pertinent to investigate the new constellations of biopower and biopolitics which assisted reproduction technology bring about.. ...
