Zimt Conferences & Seminars Organizing and IVF Lite Foundation has come together to host the World Congress on Ovulation Induction & Ovarian Stimulation Protocols. Zimt Conferences & Seminars Organizing is a recent start-up in Dubai. Zimt Conferences & Seminars Organizing which specialises in Medical Meetings, CMEs & Exhibitions has garnered exclusive rights to host the World Congress on Ovulation Induction & Ovarian Stimulation Protocols (www.woosp.in) for a tenure of 11 years annually at exclusive beach resorts in Asia/Africa.

Zimt Conferences & Seminars Organizing are now expanding their footprint in the area of OVULATION INDUCTION & OVARIAN STIMULATION PROTOCOLS along with IVF Lite Foundation. The main aim of the conference is to reliably predict ovarian response to stimulation, to tailor stimulation protocols optimizing the probability of pregnancy and keep at the same time the risks of complications and costs at a minimum. Special emphasis will be given on how to avoid excessive response and predict the occurrence of ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome (OHSS), as well as on maximizing tolerability of treatment from a patient’s perspective.

Genital TB and Infertility

Tuberculosis bacterium which can affect any part of your body, but most often affects the lungs. When it lodges and infects the genital tract, those TB bacteria can cause genital TB and can cause infertility. The infection can attack the ovaries, uterus and tubes leading to infertility problems among women. Even among men tuberculosis is a major reason for infection. Genital TB is a matter of great concern because the symptoms don’t appear easily and by the time it’s realized it already leaves an impact on the fertility of humans. Proper TB medication can help the women go on and have a successful pregnancy.

Tuberculosis and female reproductive health

Tuberculosis and female reproductive health

Tuberculosis or TB is a bacterium which can affect any part of your body, but most often affects the lungs. The primary infection in the lungs is known as pulmonary tuberculosis. In some cases the TB infection moves through the blood to other parts of the body. It can thus cause secondary infections in the genital tract, pelvic area, kidneys, spine and brain. When the bacterium reaches the genital tract it causes genital tuberculosis or pelvic TB. It affects the genital tract (in both men and women), fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries. In some cases it also affects the cervix, vagina and vulva. Genital tuberculosis is one of the major causes of tubal disease and female infertility in developing countries. Though genital TB is not common, it remains a contagious disease.

Doctors say that nearly 90 percent of women with genital tuberculosis are diagnosed in the 15-40 years age group. Infertility on account of genital tuberculosis is 60-80 percent. Doctors say that usually TB of the uterus and fallopian tubes is the cause for infertility. Recent studies have concluded that till a decade ago only 10 percent of the total tuberculosis patients suffered from genital tuberculosis, but the percentage have now increased to 30 percent due to ignoring the disease in the initial stages and lack of awareness.

 The tuberculosis starts affecting the genitals once the ‘mycobacterium tuberculosis’ enters the human body. Initially it does not affect and remains silent as most of us can fight off the infection. However, later these latent bacilli can get reactivated, and then spread throughout the body through the blood stream. It is only when it lodges and infects the genital tract that TB bacteria can cause genital TB and can cause infertility. The infection can attack the ovaries, uterus and tubes leading to infertility problems among women. The disease is also becoming more evident among men causing infertility. Even among men tuberculosis is a major reason for infection. Detection and treatment of tuberculosis remains a challenge even as it is one of the oldest diseases impacting Southeast Asian countries including India and Bangladesh, where the bacteria is very rampant.

In males, genital tuberculosis causes tuberculous epididymo-orchitis, blocking the ureteral passage, as a result of which the man becomes azoospermic (lack of sperms) and is not able to ejaculate during intercourse because the tract is blocked.

While in the woman the TB causes infection of the uterus and the fallopian tubes, this infection can often be silent, and may not cause any symptoms or signs at all. Later on it leads to infertility. The problems may also include bleeding discharge, ulcers, among other symptoms. Doctors say such tuberculosis infection is often serious as they can damage the complete tube making it difficult for females to conceive. It can lead to hydro salpingitis. If not detected at an early stage, it can lead to severe complications. In some cases, women are never able to conceive after they develop hydro salpingitis. Among 30% of women with any kind of tuberculosis, 5-10% suffers hydro salpingitis, where water enters the tube.

A recent study by the Indian Journal of Medical Research through its survey stated that the number of women with genital tuberculosis in India has increased to 30 percent in 2015 from 19 percent in 2011. The report also stated that Saudi Arabia has the second highest number of genital tuberculosis patients with 21 percent.

Genital TB is a matter of great concern because the symptoms don’t appear easily and by the time it’s realized it already leaves an impact on the fertility of humans. Even sexual intercourse with an infected person is one of the means of getting genital tuberculosis.

As being a silent intruder it’s very difficult to notice the problem in the initial stage. Symptoms like irregular menstrual cycle, vaginal discharge that is stained with blood, pain after intercourse could be noticed in females, while in males symptoms like unable to ejaculate, low sperm motility and pituitary gland not able to produce sufficient hormones can be seen.

The diagnostic dilemma arises because of varied clinical presentation of the disease confounded by diverse results on imaging, laparoscopy, histopathology, bacteriological and serological tests, each of which has its limitation in diagnostic sensitivity and specificity. Diagnosis of GTB has profound implications for asymptomatic women seeking fertility.

Diagnosis of Female Genital TB at Rotunda Clinic, Mumbai

Diagnosis of Female Genital TB at Rotunda Clinic, Mumbai

Diagnosis of GTB depends on following:

Clinical Symptomatology

CBC, ESR, RFT, CRP

Chest X-ray

Pelvic ultrasound / Hystero-salpingography(HSG).

Laparoscopy

Histopathology

Microbiology

Mantoux test

QTG-T

AFB microscopy / culture

Endometrial aspiration / Endometrial biopsy/ Endometrial curettage/ Menstrual blood in females.

Pap smear may offer important provisional diagnosis while histological examination of endometrial biopsy is one of the simplest diagnostic methods. Culture for TB remains the gold standard of all diagnosis for GTB.

It is very convenient to get the entire diagnostic test under one roof. Read in detail about the diagnostic test and procedures at http://www.iwannagetpregnant.com/services

Management of genital TB includes eradication of the infection and treating its consequences. Combination of anti-tuberculous agents for 9–12 months duration provides more than 95% cure rate. Surgical intervention may be needed, namely, total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoophorectomy, if there is persistent or recurrent disease, unhealed fistula, or multi-drug-resistant.

Diagnosis and treatment of Genital Tuberculosis

Diagnosis and treatment of Genital Tuberculosis

Most of the time women worry whether after contracting genital TB will they be able to conceive. Genital tuberculosis and the problem of infertility can be cured if proper TB medication is taken for prescribed time and after follow ups and checks are being done. Proper TB medication can help the women go on and have a successful pregnancy. The course of antibiotics for six to eight months should be completed properly, but it doesn’t guarantee the repair of fallopian tubes. Many doctors perform surgery to repair the tubes, but it’s a futile job. Lastly, the intervention has to be either in-vitro fertilization or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Most symptoms will disappear within a few weeks of treatment and there is a tendency for patients to stop treatment. Incomplete treatment can end up becoming a drug resistant case which may not only be lethal to the patient, but also be a health hazard to the community. It is very important that the treatment is completed fully.

If women with genital TB are diagnosed late, the infertility risk and other harm done to their tissue are likely to be much more severe. The solution lies in early case detection and providing standard treatment for genital TB without delay. If a family member or colleague is an active TB patient, then people around them need to be cautious and should go for tests like chest X-Ray, tuberculin test to know whether they have been hit by TB or not.

Due to lack of education, awareness and proper access to healthcare system, results in a complicated situation. In an endemic area or in an immuno compromised individual, a higher index of suspicion would allow early recognition and treatment institution to minimise its late consequences as well as disease spreading. Anti-TB medication is the mainstay of treatment. Surgical intervention may be needed in selected cases.

Fertility and Endometriosis

The Effect of Endometriosis on Fertility and Infertility – Endometriosis – Causes, Symptoms, Test and Treatment – Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis – Endometriosis and Infertility – An Overview of Endometriosis and its effect on Fertility with Dr.Gautam Allahbabdia – Symptoms of Endometriosis – Reproductive Specialist – Dr Gautam Allahbadia – Frequently Asked Questions on Endometriosis

Endometriosis - Causes, Symptoms, Test and Treatment

Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a disease that affects women of reproductive age and that may be associated with both pelvic pain and infertility. Scientific advances have improved our understanding of this benign (non-cancerous) but sometimes debilitating condition. And modern medicine now offers women with endometriosis many treatment options for relief of both pain and infertility.

According to medical statistics it is estimated that infertility can affect around 40% of women with endometriosis. Infertility can be one of the consequences of endometriosis. Interestingly it has been found that 30-40 % of women undergoing laparoscopy as part of infertility evaluation are found to have endometriosis.

What is endometriosis?

When the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus (endometrium) is found outside the uterus, it is termed “endometriosis.” Endometriosis may grow on the outside of your uterus, ovaries, and tubes and even on your bladder or intestines. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region. This tissue can irritate structures that it touches, causing pain and adhesions (scar tissue) on these organs.

Endometriosis and Infertility

Symptoms of Endometriosis

How women will know that she has endometriosis?

The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, often associated with your menstrual period. Though many woman experience cramping during their menstrual period, women with endometriosis typically describe their menstrual pain that’s far worse than the usual. They also tend to report that the pain has increased over time.

Common signs and symptoms of endometriosis may include:

  1. Painful periods (dysmenorrhea). Pelvic pain and cramping may begin before and extend several days into your period and may include lower back and abdominal pain.
  2. Pain with intercourse. Pain during sex or after sex is common in endometriosis.
  3. Pain with bowel movements or urination. You’re most likely to experience these symptoms during your period.
  4. Excessive bleeding. You may experience occasional heavy periods (menorrhagia) or bleeding between periods (menometrorrhagia).
  5. Infertility. Endometriosis is first diagnosed in some women who are seeking treatment for infertility.
  6. Other symptoms. You may also experience fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating or nausea, especially during menstrual periods.

Frequently Asked Questions on Endometriosis

The cause of endometriosis is not known, although it often runs in families. Numerous biochemical and immunological changes have been identified in association with endometriosis, but it is unclear which may contribute to endometriosis and which simply result from it.

Learn about infertility and endometriosis in detail with fertility expert at https://ivftreatmentindia.wordpress.com/dr-gautam-allahbadia

Does endometriosis lead to infertility?

If you have endometriosis, it may be more difficult for you to become pregnant. Up to 30% to 50% of women with endometriosis may experience infertility. Endometriosis can influence fertility in several ways: distorted anatomy of the pelvis, adhesions, scarred fallopian tubes, inflammation of the pelvic structures, altered immune system functioning, changes in the hormonal environment of the eggs, impaired implantation of a pregnancy and altered egg quality.

At the time of surgery, your doctor may evaluate the amount, location, and depth of endometriosis and tell you whether it is minimal, mild, moderate or severe. Different stages relates with pregnancy success. Women with severe endometriosis, which causes considerable scarring, blocked fallopian tubes, and damaged ovaries, experience the most difficulty becoming pregnant and often require advanced fertility treatment.

Endometriosis Test and Diagnosis

To diagnose endometriosis and other conditions that can cause pelvic pain, your doctor will ask you to describe your symptoms, including the location of your pain and when it occurs. Tests to check for physical clues of endometriosis include Pelvic exam, Ultrasound and Laparoscopy. Laparoscopy can provide information about the location, extent and size of the endometrial implants to help determine the best treatment options.

IVF, ICSI and Endometriosis

Endometriosis and its effect on Fertility

Know in detail how endometriosis can be tested and diagnosed and the treatment options available at http://www.iwannagetpregnant.com/services/diagnostic-services

Options available for Endometriosis Treatment

Endometriosis needs the female hormone estrogen to develop and grow. Birth control pills and other drugs that lower or block estrogen can be effective in improving pain symptoms. For patients who wish to become pregnant, medical therapy may be considered prior to attempts at conception, but this treatment usually does not improve pregnancy rates.

If endometriosis is seen at the time of surgery, your doctor will surgically destroy or remove the endometriosis and remove the scar tissue. This treatment will restore your normal anatomy and will allow your reproductive organs to function more normally. Your chances of becoming pregnant are improved after surgical treatment, especially if your endometriosis is in the moderate or severe range. The combination of surgical and medical therapy may be beneficial in patients attempting to conceive through in vitro fertilization (IVF). Overall, treatment is highly individualized for each patient. IVF is appropriate treatment especially if there are coexisting causes of infertility and/or other treatments have failed, but IVF pregnancy rates are lower in women with endometriosis than in those with tubal infertility.

What can be done to maximise future fertility when diagnosed with Endometriosis?

The birth control pill is commonly prescribed to reduce menstrual cramping and help prevent endometriosis recurrence. Preventing endometriosis can help preserve fertility, so the pill is an excellent treatment option following endometriosis surgery if you are not yet ready to become pregnant. Women with endometriosis should also strongly consider consulting with a fertility specialist, (a specialist in Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility), even if they are not yet ready to try to conceive. This is particularly important if you are over 30 or if you have “decreased ovarian reserve.” Fertility in women decreases with age. In addition to age, “ovarian reserve” also helps predict your ability to conceive. Surgery to remove or destroy endometriosis involving the ovaries may also reduce ovarian reserve and thus lower a woman’s chances for pregnancy even with fertility treatment such as IVF. Women with moderate to severe endometriosis may have scarring that can prevent the egg from entering the fallopian tube. Mild and minimal endometriosis are also associated with infertility, so all women with endometriosis need to consider the impact endometriosis may have on their fertility. A newer option is for women to freeze eggs for possible future use in the event they experience infertility. Though egg freezing is costly and is usually not covered by insurance it is always better to opt for this option.

Endometriosis, Fertility and Infertility

Is Endometriosis Curable?

Many women believe endometriosis will prevent them from having children. This is a myth. Although some does experience infertility, about 70 percent of women with endometriosis do not. There are no preventive measures to avoid the condition. A woman can manage the symptoms only if she is diagnosed.

Finding a doctor with whom you feel comfortable is crucial in managing and treating endometriosis. You may also want to get a second opinion before starting any treatment to be sure you know all of your options and the possible outcomes. About 70 percent of women with endometriosis do not experience infertility.

Male Infertility – Low Sperm Count – Causes and Treatment

The sperm must be healthy and strong to reach the egg and fertilise. A man’s semen can say a lot about his health. In the past two decades, overall sperm count for men around the world has declined by up to a third. The decline in the sperm count is because of lifestyle factors like consumption of alcohol and tobacco, overweight, lack of sleep and exposure to chemicals in daily life. A slight modification in the lifestyle can bring a lot change in the health of the sperm.

A man should make sure he has a happy, healthy lifestyle and a good relationship. It takes two to make a baby. Although a woman will carry and deliver the child, a man also has a leading role in pregnancy. For Fertilization to occur, his sperm must be healthy and strong enough to reach and penetrate the woman’s egg. If you and your partner are planning a pregnancy, you might be wondering about the health of your sperm. Start by understanding the various factors that can affect male fertility and then consider steps to help your sperm become top performers.

When a men ejaculate, the purpose of their semen is probably the last thing on their minds, but it can serve a very important role in spotting changes in your well being. Usually, semen is a white or off white fluid. Any changes in colour or smell could be a sign of something more serious. Semen will usually have a chlorine type smell, but a strong foul smelling ejaculation could be a sign of infection. The amount of semen produced varies from man to man. However, recurring low levels of watery semen could indicate a condition called retrograde ejaculation and though not harmful, it can cause fertility problems. If you spot any of these changes you should contact your GP or the urologist. The condition of a man’s sperm can tell a lot about his general health.

Men are constantly looking for health markers that can help predict their risk for chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. A majority of guys out there may be surprised to find out that their semen is an invaluable tool when it comes to gauging their overall health. That’s right, a man’s semen can say a lot about his health. In the past two decades, overall sperm count for men around the world has declined by up to a third. The decline in the sperm count is attributed mainly to the following factors.

Sperm an indicator for Men’s Health

Quality of sperm determines Fertility

Hypertension and High Blood Pressure

Around 80 million adults in the United States have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, which can lead to potentially life-threatening complications if left untreated, including kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke. A recent study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that the quality of a man’s semen could indicate his risk for hypertension. Research that included 9,387 men between the ages of 30 and 50 revealed that men struggling with fertility tend to have an increased risk for certain diseases of the circulatory system, including hypertension and heart disease. The relationship between semen quality and hypertension was tied to around 15 percent of all genes in the human genome that are connected to reproduction as well as other bodily systems.

Cigarette Smoking and Overweight/Obesity in Men

Evidence has consistently shown that smoking and obesity directly affect infertility in men. One study published in the journal Human Reproduction showed that a man with a greater body mass index (BMI) often has a lower sperm count and poor semen quality compared to a man with a lower BMI. Overweight and obese men have worse sperm quality than men of healthy weight. Being overweight or obese can also cause hormonal changes that reduce fertility and make men less interested in sex. Men who are very overweight are also more likely to have problems getting an erection. Together, these factors reduce the chances of men who are overweight or obese fathering a child.

Cigarette smoking has a significant influence only on sperm count, percentage of active sperm and sperm morphology. The semen parameters in infertile men were significantly different from that of fertile men. The influence of body mass index on semen parameters was obvious except in percentage of immotile sperms. These results suggest that the chemical agents or mutagens may affect male reproductive via direct effect on the spermatogenesis.

Bisphenol A (BPA)BPA Exposure

Fears over bisphenol A (BPA) exposure have resulted in the BPA-free movement. Researchers found that the men but not women with high phthalate concentrations experienced a 20% decline in fertility and took longer to get their partners pregnant than men with lower concentrations. BPA, an endocrine disrupting chemical with artificial estrogen properties, has been tied to disruptions in the hormonal system. Researchers from Washington State University recently discovered how BPA can increase a man’s risk for infertility. If a couple is having trouble getting pregnant, they should try to minimize the male’s exposure to phthalates. Phthalates are anti-androgens, and other studies have shown that environmental levels of phthalates in infertile men correlate with increased rates of sperm DNA damage, low sperm counts and abnormal sperm.

Today male infertility is on the rise and male infertility is due to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, varicocele or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm.

If any men out there are looking for a litmus test to decide if they are drinking too much alcohol, their sperm could be the answer. Excessive alcohol lowers testosterone levels and sperm quality and quantity in men. It can also reduce libido, and cause impotence. If a man drinks heavily it can really reduce a couple’s chances of conceiving. However, if you reduce what you drink, these effects can be quickly reversed. The current recommended guidelines on safe drinking recommend no more than three to four units of alcohol per day. Drinking within these limits is unlikely to affect the quality of your sperm, so try to make this your maximum. Liver disease caused by excessive drinking also may lead to fertility problems.

Insomnia and Lack of Sleep

Lack of sleep is associated with some extremely negative health consequences, including heart disease,

diabetes, obesity, depression, and even certain types of cancer. Yet another study out of Denmark has found that not getting enough sleep can also lower a man’s testosterone levels and sperm count. Men with insomnia, trouble getting to sleep early, and inconsistent sleep throughout the night had a sperm count that was, on average, 29 percent lower than men who had no trouble sleeping. Tests showed that their testicles were also significantly smaller, according to the study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Based on the overall youth and health of all the men involved in the study, the researchers were able to conclude that quality and duration of sleep has a big effect on sperm count, which determines male fertility.

The above lifestyle factors can easily be brought under control thereby increasing male sperm count and fertillity. Along with healthy lifestyle, if proper balanced diet is taken it will help to a great extent in increasing the sperm count for men. Foods that Increase Sperm Count includes banana, dark chocolate, beef, walnuts, garlic, pomegranates, spinach, fruit salad, egg and water. The foods and fruits mentioned in can help your body in raising its sperm count and they can also improve the functioning of the sperms. These foods are also capable of improving fertility. So the basic funda for male infertility is enjoying healthy lifestyle and good balanced diet.

Things to Know About Freezing Your Eggs – Fertility preservation

Summary: 6 Things to Know About Freezing Your Eggs:: Egg freezing gives women an opportunity to slow down their biological clock by freezing their eggs till they are ready for conception. When they decide to get pregnant, the eggs are thawed, fertilised in-vitro and transferred back into the uterus. Freezing eggs is a woman’s biological insurance against ageing. Oocyte cryopreservation is considered as an important component of human assisted reproductive technology. There are two distinct reasons for women to choose to freeze their eggs. The first is for health reasons and the second is for personal and social reasons.

Technological advances now allow women to preserve their fertility potential by freezing and storing their eggs. All women share a common dream of becoming a mother. Female fertility begins declining in the late 20’s, however conception rates remain high into the 30’s. After age 35, the decline accelerates and reaches nearly zero pregnancy potential by the time the woman reaches age 45. In addition, women over 35 have an increased risk of miscarriage and/or genetic abnormalities in their children as a result of age-dependent changes in egg quality. There are two distinct reasons for women to choose to freeze their eggs. The first is for health reasons; in particular, for women who wish to preserve their fertility before undergoing cancer treatment. The second is for personal and social reasons as many women delay childbearing beyond their most fertile years which increases the risk of age-related infertility.

Egg Freezing - Women’s Biological Insurance

Freeze your eggs for use in later period

Egg-freezing also known as oocyte cryopreservation is the latest development in the field of Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART). The American Society of Reproductive Medicine removed the “experimental” label from the technique of egg freezing in 2012 and it has since been included in mainstream fertility practice. A woman is born with all the eggs she will ever have. In fact, the strength of her oocyte reserve is finalised when she is in her mother’s womb. This number promptly becomes half by the time of birth. The eggs lie dormant till hormonal activity starts at puberty. Each month, a bunch of eggs start their journey towards ovulation. Only the best are selected and the rest are discarded naturally. By the age of 37, there is a sharp decline in the egg reserve and the number steeply declines till the age of 40-plus, when there are but few good ones left. At this point when women have not considered pregnancy, it becomes necessary to preserve her fertility so that she can get pregnant when she wants in the future. Oocyte cryopreservation is considered as an important component of human assisted reproductive technology.

This technique gives women an opportunity to slow down their biological clock by freezing their eggs till they are ready for conception. When they decide to get pregnant, the eggs are thawed, fertilised in-vitro and transferred back into the uterus. Busy pursuing educational and career goals, most women these days delay marriage and pregnancy. There are many women who cannot contemplate marriage in the near future as they are still looking for the right partner or have many compulsions like working their way through their careers. Freezing eggs is a woman’s biological insurance against ageing. However, many women are complacent and believe that egg-freezing can be done at any age. They wait till they turn 40, but by that time, it is too late! Eggs are best frozen between the ages of 25 and 37. Women who can afford this option should not waste time. Freezing eggs at an early age may ensure a chance for a future pregnancy. Reproductive specialists can help women figure out which category they are in, which is an important factor to consider when thinking about freezing eggs. In addition, women over 35 have an increased risk of miscarriage and/or genetic abnormalities in their children as a result of age-dependentchanges in egg quality.

 Women’s storing eggs in fertile period for later pregnancy Need to Freeze Eggs in early Age

Am I a candidate for Egg Freezing?

If you are between the ages of 25 and 35, not in a stable relationship and you wish to increase your chances of conception with your own eggs in the future, Egg Banking is a suitable option for you. This is also a good option for young women diagnosed with cancer, women with a family history of early menopause and those with chronic diseases where the medication may have a detrimental effect on oocyte function. Even women who want or need to delay childbearing in order to pursue educational, career or other personal goals can also opt for egg banking.

Like all new fertility techniques, egg freezing brings not only new options but also tough decisions that previous generations of women never had to face. If you do freeze your eggs, don’t be lulled into a false sense of security. You and your partner should still try for pregnancy as soon as you are ready. Freezing eggs for one’s own future use has become a growing trend.

The process and procedure of egg freezing and storage

The patient is initially tested for HIV and Hepatitis B and C. Women who wish to freeze and store eggs are given a course of fertility drugs to stimulate the ovaries to produce a large number of eggs. When the eggs are mature they are retrieved and frozen — either by cooling down slowly or by vitrification i.e. fast freezing. Recent studies have shown that egg-freezing by vitrification method increases conception rates. That’s because the chances of the eggs surviving the freeze-thaw process is comparatively higher. Eggs are frozen at a temperature of -196 degrees C in liquid nitrogen and liquid cryoprotectant to ensure long-term storage. During this period, the woman can decide if she wants to use the eggs herself or donate them to help another woman get pregnant.

 Vitrification of EggsOocyte Cryopreservation with Dr Gautam Allahbadia

In oocyte cryopreservation, the eggs are harvested by a process similar to the natural cycle. The patient will be made to grow more eggs, with the help of hormonal injections, which are patient-friendly and can, in most cases, be self-administered. The eggs are later retrieved by a 10-minute procedure under short anaesthesia. The patient can resume normal life within a day. The eggs are cryopreserved using advanced vitrification process, which causes minimal damage to the eggs they can be maintained for many years.

How long can you store your eggs in cryo bank?

Theoretically, eggs or embryos may be frozen indefinitely, as no biological activity takes place during cryopreservation. In medical literature, the longest reported time for an embryo to be frozen, thawed and result in a viable healthy delivery is twelve years. Freezing and thawing protocols continue to improve, making it possible that eggs / embryos frozen more recently may have even better outcomes. Based on this scientific evidence, it can be said that 15 -20 years of storage does not result in any decrease in quality of eggs.

How do you use frozen eggs to achieve pregnancy?

Once you are ready to start a family with your partner/husband, you will be prepared for a recipient cycle with medications to prepare your uterine lining. Your eggs will be thawed and fertilized using the ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) technique with partner/husband’s sperm. The embryo transfer will then be planned after 2 or 3 days.

Elective oocyte freezing for the preservation of fertility

What is egg freezing, thawing, fertilising and storing?

What can go wrong during this entire process?

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. There is a small possibility that during egg retrieval no eggs are collected or the collected eggs are not mature and hence not suitable for freezing. It may also happen that none of the frozen eggs survive the thawing process, or they may not get fertilized in spite of successful thawing.

Is egg freezing safe?

To date, approximately 2,000 babies have been born from frozen eggs. The largest published study of 900 babies from frozen eggs showed no increased rate of birth defects when compared to the general population. Additionally, results from one study showed no increased rates of chromosomal defects between embryos derived from frozen eggs compared to embryos derived from fresh eggs.

Most insurance companies don’t cover the cost of egg freezing, not even for medical reasons when a young woman’s fertility is jeopardized by cancer. So the decision by Facebook and Apple to foot the bill is a significant benefit for women who want to freeze their eggs.

Infertility Treatments IVF and ICSI

IVF and ICSI: When other methods fail – IVF ICSI and Infertility Treatment – IVF and ICSI  – ART Technique for Infertility Treatment – When to opt for an IVF and ICSI  treatments? – Infertility and Fertility Clinic Mumbai, India – IVF ICSI and Infertility Treatments

The heartbreak of infertility can be devastating. After trying for many months and even years, some couples are not able to conceive and carry a pregnancy to term. Causes of infertility or reproductive problems include disease and aging. Male infertility is as common as female infertility. Infertility or reproductive problems are often treatable with infertility drugs and high-tech procedures. Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is a group of different methods used to help infertile couples. ART works by removing eggs from a woman’s body. The eggs are then mixed with sperm to make embryos. The embryos are then put back in the woman’s body.

Infertility treatment plan will depend on the cause or causes behind your infertility. Infertility treatment also depends on whether the problem is from the woman’s side, the man’s side, both sides, or remains unexplained. The good news is that 85% to 90% of couples dealing with infertility are treated with low-tech treatments, like medication or surgery, with less than 3% being treated by Assisted Reproductive Technologies, like IVF, ICSI, Surrogacy. When a couple fails to achieve pregnancy in normal way and using low-tech treatments, like medication or surgery there comes the ART technique to their rescue. Here presently we deal with the ART Technology – IVF and ICSI.

IVF and ICSI: When other methods fail

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a process by which an egg is fertilized by sperm In Vitro or outside the body, in a laboratory. If the sperm fertilizes the egg, an embryo is formed which is allowed to develop in the laboratory and is then transferred into the women’s uterus where it will hopefully implant and develop further.

The main steps in an IVF cycle are:

  • 1. Controlled Ovarian Hyper-stimulation (COH) and Follicular Monitoring.
  • 2. hCG Trigger and Oocyte Retrieval.
  • 3. Oocyte Culture, Insemination and Fertilization in the IVF Laboratory.
  • 4. Embryo Transfer
  • 5. Luteal Support

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) takes the process one step further and involves the insertion of a single sperm directly into the cytoplasm of a mature egg (oocyte) using a special microinjection pipette (glass needle).

Do I need IVF?

IVF is indicated when alternative treatments are either unlikely to achieve a pregnancy or have failed to achieve a pregnancy or have failed to result in a pregnancy. If you have blocked fallopian tubes or extensive pelvic adhesions preventing the egg from entering the fallopian tubes, IVF is indicated. Another common indication for IVF is low sperm counts. Because IVF allows us super concentrate sperm, successful fertilization can occur even if your partner has low sperm counts. Infertility is said to be “unexplained” if you are unable to conceive in spite of all tests being normal. In this case, IVF is an option if you have failed to conceive with Intrauterine Insemination (IUI). IVF may also be advisable if you have Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS) and if ovulation induction with or without IUI has not been successful. If you have mild to moderate Endometriosis, IUI may be tried before proceeding to IVF, but in case of severe Endometriosis, IVF may be advised directly.

When to opt for an IVF and ICSI treatments?

Do I need ICSI?

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) has revolutionized the treatment of male infertility. ICSI is advisable if the male partner’s sperm count or number of motile sperm is very low or the morphology is excessively poor. Fertility Physician will advise you if ICSI is recommended for you based on the results of the Semen Analysis and other risk factors.

Are birth defects more common in babies conceived using IVF / ICSI ?

The percentage defect with IVF is roughly the same as in the general population (3-4%). The chances of birth defect after ICSI are rare. Some of the problems that caused the male infertility, however, may be genetic. In these cases, boys conceived with the use of ICSI may have inherited infertility issues as adults.

What are the health risks for women undergoing IVF / ICSI cycles?

The drugs used during IVF/ICSI may on occasion cause side effects. There is a small but significant risk of Multiple Pregnancies, Ectopic Pregnancy, Pelvic Infection and rarely Injury to nearby organs. Controlled Ovarian Hyper-stimulation (COH) is associated with a risk of Ovarian Hyper-stimulation Syndrome (OHSS). Symptoms of OHSS include the following in varying degrees of severity: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, extreme bloating, rapid weight gain, difficulty breathing etc. These symptoms are closely monitored by the doctors to prevent the occurrence of hyper-stimulation.

What to do with extra embryos that remain after Embryo Transfer?

Extra embryos of good quality remaining after the embryo transfer may be frozen by the Vitrification procedure which gives an excellent survival rate. This makes future ART cycles simpler, less expensive and less invasive than the initial cycle, since the women do not require ovarian stimulation or egg retrieval.

What are the success rates?

Success rates are the result of years of experience and constant fine-tuning of stimulation protocols, laboratory culture conditions and embryo transfer guidelines. The most important factors determining the success of a cycle are the woman’s age and the reason for the infertility. If you are using your own eggs, on average, the younger you are the higher your chances of success. IVF and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) success rates are very similar.

IVF Fertility Specialist India

What to look into an IVF specialist? – Fertility Specialist and Fertility Clinic at Mumbai, India – Infertility, Fertility, IVF Clinic India – Who is called Fertility Specialist? – Dr.Gautam Allahbadia an IVF Fertility specialist, Mumbai, India – Know in detail about Fertility Infertility and IVF Specialist – Top Infertility Doctor and IVF Clinic – Role of Fertility Specialist in the journey of Infertility.

Infertility is a medical problem that results in the inability to conceive a child or carry a pregnancy to full term. A couple is usually diagnosed as infertile after one year of frequent, unprotected, sexual intercourse. If you have been trying to get pregnant on your own and are concerned that you might have fertility problems, it is good to start off by seeing a general gynaecologist. You should talk to your general gynaecologist about your concerns, discuss your medical history, and ask him at what point he would refer you to a fertility specialist. If you are under 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for a year or more, your doctor may refer you to a fertility specialist. If you are 35 or older, your doctor may refer you for fertility treatment after just six months of trying. Infertile couples start losing hope, fearing continual disappointment on failure of not being able to conceive. If you’ve been working with your family doctor or OB /GYN while trying to get pregnant but haven’t had success, it may be time so see a fertility specialist or fertility doctor. That’s why it’s important to know when to see a fertility specialist and how this doctor can help you.

Fear of failure, concerns about cost and stories you have heard about other couples difficulties in conceiving can be discouraging. The majority of couples — 65% — who seek fertility treatment succeed in having children after being treated with fertility medication or surgical repair of reproductive organs. More than 95% of infertile couples in treatment do not require in vitro fertilization (IVF).

DrGautamAllahabadia - Medical Director - ROTUNDA IVF MUMBAI

When looking for an IVF doctor, a good place to start is to ask your OB/GYN for his/her opinion of doctors in your area. Because fertility treatment usually requires several office visits, you will probably not want to travel too far for testing and treatment. Other sources are friends or relatives you know who have had an experience with a fertility doctor. Because there is a wide range of IVF clinics, it is helpful to know the ins and outs of how to select an IVF specialist and an ivf clinic. Though some OB/GYNs do provide limited infertility treatment, they are not trained in the more advanced reproductive technologies like IVF. You will want to find a doctor who has been trained to do IVF.

Fertility specialists are doctors that focus on diagnosing and treating male and female infertility. Fertility doctors study Reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI), a branch of medicine that identifies and treats infertility in both men and women. Fertility doctors are gynaecologists who have received advanced, specialized training and certification in fertility problems and solutions. These fertility specialists have undergone the extensive advanced medical training necessary to accurately diagnose and treat the many complex conditions that can cause infertility. Fertility specialists specialises from the initial diagnosis in the male and female to the most complex assisted reproductive technology procedures.

Fertility specialist are actively involved in the management of in vitro fertilization cycles and master the administration of FSH, cycle monitoring, retrieval, culture and transfer. Reproductive Endocrinologists (RE) represents a subspecialty of obstetrics/gynaecology devoted specifically to treating infertility.

When it’s time to see a fertility specialist?
If you’ve been working with your family doctor or OB/GYN while trying to get pregnant but haven’t had success, it may be time so see a fertility specialist. One might want to see a fertility doctor sooner if you have a history of irregular or painful periods, pelvic pain, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), repeated miscarriages, or if your partner has a low sperm count or a history of testicular, prostate, or sexual problems. If age is a concern then also it is better to seek assistance of fertility specialist earlier.

What is the role of a fertility specialist?

A fertility specialist diagnoses and treats problems related to infertility. If you have been trying to get pregnant for a year (or six months if you are over 35) and natural conception is not working, a fertility specialist can diagnose and treat the infertility problems like Endometriosis, Problems with ovulation, Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Abnormalities of the ovaries, fallopian tubes and/or uterus. Also, if you have had two or more miscarriages, a fertility specialist may diagnose the cause of the miscarriages. The specialist would then guide you in selecting procedures that may help prevent miscarriage so you carry the baby to term.

If you are over 35 or if you want to benefit from assisted reproductive technologies (ART), like in vitro fertilization (IVF), a fertility specialist can guide you in using the ART process, along with other high-tech procedures. A fertility specialist may be the most qualified doctor to help you overcome infertility and finally get pregnant.

DrGautamAllahabadia

Once you have made the decision to consult a fertility doctor and have narrowed down your option on fertility specialist, you should make an appointment to meet with, and interview, the doctor of your choice. It is always better that you pay visit along with your partner. Your partner should attend the appointments with you.

When selecting a fertility clinic and doctor, it is wise that you do your own research in advance of visiting a clinic. Doctors report that IVF patients these days are typically well-informed and knowledgeable when visiting a clinic for the first time. It is to your benefit to be an educated consumer and to know what to look for. Prepare list of questions you would like to talk to your fertility specialist.

The list may include few of the following questions.

1) For how long have you been treating infertility?
2) Do you have a treatment specialty?
3) How long have you been in this practice?
4) How long has the fertility clinic’s medical director been there? How long have the doctors and technicians been there?
5) Which procedures do you do and how often? Be sure the clinic has a wide range of infertility remedies available and is familiar with the latest technologies, such as something called blastocyst transfer.
6) Do you have age limits for treatment? If so, it’s a good sign that the clinic is concerned about ethical issues.
7) What specific tests would you recommend to diagnose my infertility? How much do they cost?
8) Based on the results of those tests, what are my fertility treatment options, and how much do they cost?
9) How many ovulation induction (OI) cycles do you recommend before moving to in vitro fertilization (IVF)?
10) How many embryos do you transfer per cycle?
11) What is the success rate for IVF in terms of live births per embryo transfer for this facility?
12) If necessary, can you help me access donor egg, embryo or sperm donor?
13) How will I communicate with you during this whole process?
14) Does your clinic provide emotional counselling, or can you refer me to a counsellor who deals with fertility problems?
15) What can I expect in terms of time commitments and how many visits do you anticipate will be necessary?

You should also find out if you can speak with any former patients willing to share their success stories. Beyond getting information about the doctor and the practice, you can have an opportunity to connect with people who’ve been there. Trust your gut. After visiting and narrowing on the fertility specialist or an IVF specialist it’s up to you (and your gut) to make your final decision. If something feels off, pay attention. On the flip side, if you feel a connection, you should listen to that, too. Your comfort level with the doctor is a very important aspect that should not be ignored. Make sure you and your spouse are comfortable with the specialist and there clinic. You should develop a trust in him. Then only proceed.

However, you need to do some homework first. Before you step foot into the fertility clinic, find out what kind of invasive tests or procedures might lie in wait for you. And give some thought ahead of time to how far you’re willing to go with this process. Advanced reproductive technology can cost many thousands of rupees, can involve strong drugs or hormones, and can be an emotional roller coaster. Knowing your limits will keep you from being talked into some nifty new procedure that you really don’t want and can’t afford.

Lastly, follow your own instincts. You know your body, and if you are trying month after month and can’t get pregnant, go ahead and make an appointment to see a fertility specialist. Remember, if you’re under 35 and have been trying for more than a year, or are 35 or older and have been trying for 6 months or more, then you should see a fertility specialist right away. This can give you a peace of mind immediately—and hopefully a baby in the near future.
