Treatment options at Alpha International Fertility Centre
|Intrauterine insemination (IUI)||
It is a procedure that involves placing of sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. It usually requires insertion of a speculum and then a cannula. This fertility treatment does not involve manipulation with woman’s eggs.
|In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)||
It is commonly referred to as IVF or test tube baby. It is a process of fertilization occurred outside the body which involves manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. An embryo will be formed if fertilization is successful. Then it’s followed by an embryo transfer into the mother’s womb, a procedure which involves physically placing the embryo in the uterus. The remaining excess of good quality embryos may be frozen and cryogenically stored for future use in a procedure called frozen embryo transfer.
It is an advanced ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) technique which minimizes damage to the egg and increases egg fertilization rate compared to conventional ICSI. Studies have demonstrated that PIEZO-ICSI has the lowest egg degeneration rate (1%) and the highest fertilization rate (89%).
Blastocyst is an embryo that has been developing for five to six days after fertilization and has developed 2 distinct cell types, trophectoderm and inner cell mass and cell cavity filled with fluid (blastocoel cavity). Trophectoderm will later develop into placenta and inner cell mass will later become a fetus. With blastocyst transfer, embryos are cultured in the laboratory to the blastocyst stage before they are transferred into the womb.
|MicroSort® Sperm Sorting||
It is a scientifically proven sperm sorting technology which separates a sperm into X and Y. Semen samples usually contain 50% of sperm carrying Y chromosome that will produce a boy and 50% of sperm carrying X chromosome that will produce a girl.
