IVF Treatment Center
Ziva is undoubtedly the best IVF treatment center in Hyderabad. In-vitro fertilization treatment is an assisted reproductive technology in which the egg is combined with a sperm outside the womb.
Infertility is a common occurrence in today’s time and is experienced by 1 in 6 couples worldwide and there is a tremendous increase in the number of people opting for IVF treatments. Approximately 1.5 million IVF cycles are performed each year worldwide. In India, around 65,000 couples undergo infertility treatment and the success rate is 18%.
Low success rates have been recorded due to the shortage of fertility experts. ZIVA has the best fertility team and IVF experts which makes us one of the best IVF centres in Hyderabad.
In-vitro fertilization treatment is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) in which the egg is combined the sperm outside the womb. Mature eggs are collected from a woman’s body and fertilized with the retrieved sperm sample from the male partner in a laboratory dish.
Before the IVF cycle starts:
- All patients/couples are asked to sign a consent form before commencing the treatment.
- A baseline ultrasound scan is done according to the treatment plan. In case of cysts, the cycle may persist a little longer.
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) injections are then started:
When the down-regulation is confirmed by blood tests and ultrasound the FSH injections are started. The dose of the drug depends on a woman’s previous baseline hormone results and her response to previous stimulated cycles.
- After the baseline scan, the dosage of FSH is confirmed.
Hormone blood tests:
A woman’s blood sample will be taken for hormone assessment to check if there is under-response or over-response. Few scans will be done to monitor the FSH injections response.
These results will be used to adjust FSH injections, if needed, and then the final hCG injection time and date is decided. The hCG injection will mature and release eggs within the follicles. Approximately 36 hours later, the eggs are retrieved.
IVF procedure step by step:
During your IVF procedure, multiple eggs are required. A woman’s body produces only one egg per month which is why the ovaries are stimulated with hormones so that follicles are produced.
The doctor examines the patient by transvaginal ultrasounds and blood tests to keep a check on the hormone levels.
Through the ultrasounds, the fertility expert will control the size and quantity of each follicle as required.
2. EGG RETRIEVAL
Just before the eggs are released during ovulation, the egg retrieval process takes place. To retrieve the eggs from a woman’s body, a surgical procedure called follicular aspiration is performed. During this step, the woman is given anaesthesia to relieve pain. The procedure might take 20-30 minutes.
The egg is retrieved aseptically through the vaginal route under the guidance of ultrasound. A thin needle is connected to a suction device which goes into the vagina, the ovary and the egg-containing follicle. The needle will suction the eggs and fluid out of each follicle.
3. INSEMINATION AND FERTILIZATION
In IVF, the semen sample is collected from the partner. Mixing of sperm and egg is referred to as ‘insemination’. They are then incubated in the incubator in which the sperm often enters the egg.
If the fertility expert feels that the chances of fertilization are low, he/she will decide to go for Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). In ICSI, the expert will directly inject a healthy sperm into the mature egg. For successful IVF, sperm density and sperm motility are of utmost importance.
4. EMBRYO CULTURE
The fertility expert then monitors the fertilized eggs kept in the incubator to ensure they divide and develop well. To keep up with the nutritional requirements for the growing embryos, culture media is changed at regular intervals.
These embryos then undergo cleavage into a complex structure and on the 3rd or 4th day enter a stage called ‘morula’. Morula develops into a blastocyst on the 5th day, which is the last stage of the embryo. A blastocyst transfer increases chances of conception.
While the embryo is growing in the incubator, the fertility expert removes a small sample and tests it for genetic diseases. This test is known as a ‘preimplantation genetic diagnosis’ or PGD. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis or PGD identifies abnormal embryos so that the unaffected and healthy embryos can be selected for the transfer. This test reduces the risk of genetic disorders in the future.
5. EMBRYO TRANSFER
Embryo transfer takes place when the embryo has developed enough to get implanted. It takes approximately 3-5 days after egg retrieval and fertilization for its development.
A thin tube called ‘catheter’ that contains the embryo is inserted inside the vagina, through the cervix and up into the womb. When the embryo gets implanted into the uterine wall and starts growing, a simple blood test will determine pregnancy after 10-12 days.
