The primary objective of the New Baby IVF Center is to assist couples who wish to start a family but their dream of conceiving a child is not easily realized. Our goal is to help couples make decisions about assisted reproductive technology by providing the information, diagnostic facilities and treatment options.
We use state-of-the-art medical equipment and advanced fertility technology to enhance your experience. All of our fertility specialists work as a team to ensure the high standard of patient care and high success rate of pregnancy.
What is Infertility
Infertility is a term defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.
Causes of Infertility
Male infertility Male infertility is due to low sperm production, abnormal sperm function or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems and other factors can play a role in causing male infertility.
Female infertility Common causes of female infertility are ovulation disorders, damaged or blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, uterine or cervical abnormalities, hormonal factors and age-related causes (more than 35 years old).
At the first consultation you will meet our fertility specialists who will complete a detailed review of your medical history. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions. Then, assessment of both partners will be made, include a physical examination, blood tests and other investigations that necessary. For female, we recommend that you should complete hormone assessment and ultrasound scan, which will provide essential information for further treatments. For male, semen sample is essential for analysis of seminal plasma and sperm function test. Additional blood test for hormone evaluation may be needed if there is any abnormalities in sperm quality or quantity.
1. Ovarian Stimulation
Hormones and medications are administered to stimulate egg development in the ovaries, depending on the needs of the individual. Ovarian response to the stimulating hormones is assessed by measuring levels of hormones in the blood and monitoring the number and size of the follicles by ultrasound scan.
2. Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is an insemination technique which involves the insemination of a prepared sperm sample directly into the uterine cavity at the time of ovulation. IUI can sometimes give higher pregnancy rates when combined with ovarian stimulation.
The male partner is asked to produce a semen sample in the same day of IUI. After sperm preparation, a portion of sperm will be placed into the uterus by a fine catheter. IUI with prepared sperm is recommended for couples with non-obstructed fallopian tubes and have more than one million of total motile sperm.
3. Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT)
Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT) is a method of assisted reproductive technology. Eggs are removed from a woman´s ovaries, and placed in one of the fallopian tubes, along with the man´s sperm. The technique allows fertilization to take place inside the woman´s uterus. However, with the advances in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) the GIFT procedure is used less as pregnancy rates in IVF tend to be equal or better and do not require laparoscopy.
4. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Hormones and medications are adjusted during the cycle depending upon the development of follicles in the ovaries. Attentive monitoring can be done by measuring levels of hormones and using ultrasound scan. In the egg collection procedure, a fine needle is attached to the scan probe, which is passed into the ovary trans-vaginally. Each egg is placed in special fluid before being placed in a monitored incubator. The sperm is prepared by separating the normal and moving sperm from the ejaculated fluid on the same day as egg collection.
Then, the sperm and eggs are placed together in the assigned dishes and left in the incubator to allow fertilization to take place. As embryos develop, their cells divide. Embryologists will monitor the embryos until they develop to blastocyst stage. One or two of the best embryos will be transferred to the uterus. IVF is a good option for tubal factor infertility such as blocked or damaged fallopian tubes and male factor infertility.
5. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
For Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) technique, each suitable mature egg is injected with a single prepared sperm cell by a micro needle into the cytoplasm of the egg. This procedure so it bypasses all the natural barriers that the sperm has to encounter. After that the rest of the process is the same as the IVF procedure.
ICSI is appropriate in several circumstances. Most commonly when the male partner has too few sperm for conventional IVF. It is also suitable for low sperm motility and high numbers of abnormal sperm. In addition, when previous IVF attempts have been unsuccessful, ICSI can increase the likelihood of fertilization.
6. Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE)
Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) is the process of removing a small portion of tissue from the testicle under local anesthesia and extracting the few viable sperm cells present in that tissue for intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The testicular sperm extraction process is recommended to men who cannot produce sperm by ejaculation due to azoospermia, such as that caused by primary testicular failure, blockages along the seminal tract, congenital absence of the vas deferens, vasectomy or any problem arising from injury or infection.
7. Egg freezing
After identifying the mature eggs, they are immersed in liquid nitrogen, in which they freeze almost instantly. Then, they are placed into one larger container, which is also labeled with the name and unique identification number. The container is placed inside a storage tank filled with liquid nitrogen, which keeps the eggs preserved for future use.
8. Assisted Hatching (AH)
Another technique used to increase chances of implantation is laser assisted hatching. To successfully attach in the uterus, the outer shell of the embryo must break, allowing the fertilized egg to hatch and attach to the endometrial lining. However, as a woman ages, the eggs may develop thicker shells, making it more difficult for the egg to hatch naturally; or, the doctor may have diagnosed a pattern with poor embryos from a previous IVF cycle. In these cases, the doctor may choose to employ assisted hatching, which is the process by which a hole is created in the shell of the fertilized egg. This facilitates the embryo escaping from its shell and improves the chances of implantation in the uterus.
9. Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) method uses up-to-date techniques of human genome sequencing (reading of genetic information) for testing embryos. This technology opens up for new diagnostic possibilities. It is used as a part of IVF and provides comprehensive information concerning the embryo’s DNA which can help identify risk of diseases and genetic mutations.
Rest and relax
Try low impact activities
Avoid lifting heavy objects
Eat a healthy diet
Take medications as prescribed
The average normal fertilization rate is around 15-20% after IUI.
The average normal fertilization rate is around 40-50% after ICSI.
The success of pregnancy not only depends on fertility specialists and high technology equipment, but also requires the cooperation of couple during treatment to ensure success.
