In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) – IVF refers to the process where both the egg and the sperm are retrieved from the partners and fertilized in the laboratory. The embryo is later transferred to the uterus with the help of a catheter. Often, multiple embryos are passed on to the uterus to increase the chances of a successful conceiving.
In this process, a single sperm is extracted from the semen or directly from the testicle and injected into the inner part of a single oocyte. This method is chosen when the sperm mobility or the sperm count is poor. The injected oocyte is then stored in the cell culture and checked in the later stages for any signs of fertilization.
We offer to preserve extracted semen, lab-fertilized embryos & oocytes (eggs) for later use through cryopreservation. The tissues and cells are subjected to an atmosphere with temperatures dropping below - 80-degree Centigrade to halt enzymatic chemical activity that facilitates biological decomposition under unstable physical conditions.
During in-vitro fertilization, the embryo prepared from the extracted egg & sperm is rested in the cell culture to mature. The embryo is then frozen so that it can be transferred to the uterus when the endometrium becomes ready to support implantation. The endometrium is prepared by offering the patient with calculated doses of estrogen and progesterone over a decided course of time.
