The major cause of infertility in obese women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

 

Natural and Assisted Pregnancy becomes a Concern

Embryo Cryopreservation For IVF Procedure

In the advanced Embryo Cryopreservation technique, the sperms and embryos are frozen and thawed for IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) cycles. As the frozen embryos are already available through this technique, a woman need not undergo fertility drug stimulation in order to have an embryo to transfer at the infertility treatment. When sperm is collected manually or by microsurgery, and the same is frozen for successive IVF cycles, so that any additional surgery may be avoided.

Embryo cryopreservation process:

A cell mostly contains water. When freezing the embryos, the ice is formed in and between the cells which are the main concern. Ice crystals have the ability to hurt the cell wall, harm the tiny structures inside the cell. The main goal of the freezing process is to protect the embryo. With the help of special fluids called cryoprotective agents (CPAs) protection of embryo is carried. It acts as “anti-freeze” for cells.

Slow programmable freezing and vitrification are the two methods used to freeze and preserve embryos.
  • Slow programmable freezing
The embryos are frozen slowly in stages. The cryoprotective agents are added to the embryos to increase the strength for 10-20 minutes. Then, the embryos are gradually cooled for two hours using a machine that lowers the temperature minute by minute. The frozen embryos are stored in liquid nitrogen at -196.1° Celsius.
  • Vitrification
It is a fast freezing technique that uses cryoprotective agents at a higher strength. In this method, the embryos are mixed with the CPAs. The strong CPAs could hurt the cell. In order to prevent any damage, the embryos are quickly placed into the liquid nitrogen medium. In this process, the embryos are changed into a solid state. In this state, no ice formation happens.

Duration of Embryo preservation

Once the embryos are frozen, they are stored in a liquid nitrogen freezer. Embryos can be frozen in the liquid nitrogen medium for years together. However, some countries follow time limits to store the embryos in the frozen condition. Within 1-6 days after the embryo formation, it is frozen.

The key goal of ART International Infertility Medical Meet is to impart education to people about Infertility and treatments.

Everything You Need To Know about IVF

Infertility became a common phenomenon in these days, around 1 in 6 couples are affected. 5% of the infertile couples turn to IVF to help them conceive. That means 1 in 50 babies are now born using IVF. IVF or in vitro fertilization is the joining of egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. Healthy ova and sperms are collected from the infertile couples. After the formation of the embryo, it is transferred into the uterus.

Fertility pills or hormones may be prescribed for the couples to stimulate follicle production, to stimulate the ovaries so multiple eggs can be gathered. This increases the chance of fertilization, pregnancy, and a live birth.

10 Things Most People Don't Know About Infertility

AIIM (Arc international infertility Meet) event held in Chennai on 13th and 14th May aimed at knocking down so many myths surrounding infertility. The speakers at the event were all distinguished in their respective fields. The event was aptly named “Breaking the barrier in sub fertility”. The event was a platform for doctors from diverse fields to share the knowledge, bridge the gaps and synchronise the treatment procedure to get best results for fertility support activities.










It would be enlightening and interesting to look at certain myths surrounding infertility, lies paraded as facts.

1. Ramifications of Infertility for Woman


Infertility is a condition where the woman is unable to conceive and the couple goes childless. The ramifications of being barren woman could be far reaching depending on the culture and tradition. In rural parts of India women who cannot conceive is looked down upon.

2. Understanding Infertility


It’s imperative to know what type of infertility one has before going for treatment. So it’s equally important to consult an expert on infertility. There are primary infertility and secondary infertility. Primary infertility is a condition where couples will not be able to conceive at all. Secondary infertility is found in couples who after having conceived a child and is finding difficulty to conceive again probably due to miscarriage or other factors. The most common factors that cause infertility in woman are problem with ovulation, damage to fallopian tubes or uterus, or problems with cervix.

3. Men do not face infertility issues


This was a myth that was broken recently. Now the whip has been cracked on men as well as the researches points to the fact that one third of the infertility cases can be attributed to male infertility.

4. Age affects only female fertility rate


Age affects male and female infertility rate equally. Most men will start experiencing a decrease in semen volume and motility.

5. Timely treatment for infertility


Emotional support is essential for people undergoing treatment for infertility. Most people hesitate to undergo treatment for infertility because of misleading arguments attached to it. These misnomers need to be knocked down with factual representation of the success rate of undergoing a treatment for infertility.

6. Health does not impact fertility


Health is an important factor that causes infertility in men and women. Modern lifestyle, food habits, stress etc can have a negative impact on fertility. Infertility problems can be addressed by living a healthy life.

7. Infrequent period causes infertility


It may be just that the menstrual cycle is lengthy and the number of times a woman is fertile has decreased.

8. Infertility problems are hereditary


It’s another myth that infertility problems can be due to heredity. The affected person needs to undergo tests to know the exact reason for infertility.

9. Volume of semen indicates fertility


It is the sperm count and not the volume and thickness of the sperm that indicates fertility.

10. Retroverted uterus causes infertility


It is a health issue and not a cause for infertility. Many women are born with retroverted uterus (tipped uterus) and this is normal.
