Oocyte cryopreservation ca be considered for a variety of reasons, including:
- Women who need chemotherapy and/or pelvic radiation therapy, which may have an impact on fertility.
- A surgical procedure that might harm the ovaries.
- Risk of early menopause due to chromosomal abnormalities (such as Turner syndrome or fragile X syndrome) or family history.
- Ovarian disease which puts the ovaries at risk.
- Genetic mutations requiring ovary removal (e.g. BRCA mutation).
- Preservation of fertility for social or personal reasons to put off having kids.
Egg Freezing Procedure
Due to the ovarian stimulation cycle, fertility specialist may first examine the ovarian reserve to determine the possible production of oocytes. Blood tests and a pelvic ultrasound are both included in the evaluation. This will also help in figuring out the correct medicine dosage. Similarly, towards how in vitro fertilization (IVF) is done, ovarian stimulation is done by injecting hormonal medicines. Following the stimulation, the ovarian follicles’ oocytes and surrounding fluid are aspirated vaginally while the patient is sedated.
The eggs are examined under a microscope to determine their maturity, and those that are mature are cryopreserved. At the current, vitrification is the preferred technique for cryopreserving oocytes, and it is achieved by extremely fast cooling into liquid nitrogen where they can be stored.
At SaplingIVF Clinic, we have both the capability and the experience to freeze eggs as daily practice.
The cost of the procedure is depending by the individual plan and any insurance coverage. A lot of insurance plans may cover for the initial evaluation as well as a portion of the treatment.
Hysteroscopy and laparoscopic procedure at SaplingIVF clinic
The procedures used for fertility enhancement surgery are laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
Infertility causes are primarily diagnosed and treated with the help of laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. While hysteroscopy involves introducing a telescope through the cervix into the uterine cavity, laparoscopy involves using small telescopes that are inserted through the navel.
Other diagnostic procedures such as ultrasonography, sonosalpingography, or hysteron saplingpgraphy (HSG) have not produced a solution. Correcting gynaecological disorders that lead to infertility (listed in below section).
What disorders are treated through laparoscopy?
- Unexplained infertility diagnosis
- Pelvic infections
- Polycystic ovarian cysts (ovarian drilling)
- Ovarian cyst removal (cystectomy)
- Tuberculous masses
- Tubal block and cannulation to remove those obstructions
- Removing adhesions
- Fibroid Removal (myomectomy)
- Salpingectomy: Removal of the diseased tube
- All of these disorders that impact fertility can be treated with laparoscopy.
- Both the main laparoscope and the instruments are inserted through tiny incisions on the lower belly (5 to between 10 mm)
- The benefits of laparoscopy, such as painlessness and early mobilization, make it an excellent tool for improving the success of infertility treatments.
What are the advantages of hysteroscopy?
- The main objective of hysteroscopy is to identify and treat uterine cavity abnormalities.
- Correction of the uterine septum, a fibrous band in the uterine cavity that remains as a developmental abnormality and is present in 20% of individuals with infertility.
- Polyp removal – endometrial glands grow abnormally
- Fibroid removal, which destroys the uterine cavity and results in infertility
- The elimination of uterine adhesions caused on by intrauterine infections
- All of these procedures help in increasing the success rate of infertility treatments including in vitro fertilization, intrauterine insemination of semen, as well as natural conception with ovulation study.
How much time are these procedures expected to take?
- These procedures are done under general anesthesia.
- Generally, a complete operation involving both a laparoscopy and a hysteroscopy last for one and a half hours.
- Approximately a small percentage of IVF patients require hysteroscopy, which takes only half an hour to execute and results in patient release the same day.
- On the first day, you could feel a little uncomfortable, but within 2 to 3 days, you can resume your usual tasks because the treatments are so painless.
