IVF in-vitro fertilization is defined as a procedure when eggs are removed from the ovary, fertilized outside the body and then implanted into the uterus.
According to a new study from Erlangen University Hospital in Germany
suggests a combination approach to improving fertility for oncology
Researchers from Tel Aviv University recently published a study in the journal Fertility and Sterility comparing fertilization and pregnancy rates between extracted and ejaculated sperm in patients undergoing ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection).
In an attempt to increased fertility and chance of conception,
equations and medical history are used to evaluate optimal fertility
windows for women seeking IVF/ICSI treatment.
Morphometric analysis is used to determine embryo volume.
Researchers from UZ Leuven Campus Gasthuisberg recently completed a
study using morphometric analysis to determine if embryo volume played
an important part in clinical pregnancy rates.
These options – sometimes referred to as “Advanced Reproductive Therapy” or “Assisted Reproductive Technlology” (ART) can make the difference between being childless or adopting a child and having a child that’s biologically your own.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is used in many IVF/ICSI treatments to facilitate implantation of embryos. Researchers from Poissey Saint German Medical Center wondered if women with recurrent implantation failure shared a common form of polymorphism.
A total of 420 participants were included in the study completed at the Fertility-Centro de Fertilizacao Assistida in Brazil. All participants were having ICSI fertility treatments. In all, 2,781 graded blastocysts were involved.
IVF and ICSI treatments are costly and time-consuming, so researchers are constantly looking for small details that can impact overall conception, pregnancy and live birth outcome.
There are procedures used in intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), a
form of assisted reproductive technology, that may increase the risk of
infant hepatitis C infection (HCV) when mom is HCV positive.
A prospective randomized multicentre study comparing vaginal progesterone gel and vaginal micronized progesterone tablets for luteal support after in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
Thanks to ART treatments couples that would not have otherwise been able
to parent are now happily raising children. However, despite the
benefits associated with ART, there is some risk of birth defect
according to researchers from the University of Adelaide.
IVF in-vitro fertilization is defined as a procedure when eggs are
removed from the ovary, fertilized outside the body and then implanted
into the uterus. IVF stands for "In-Vitro Fertilization."
Intrauterine insemination is also called artificial insemination, or IUI. Human artificial insemination with the male partner's sperm for infertility began being used in the 1940's.
If you have had a vasectomy and decide that you want to have more children, here is some information for you and your partner. One option is vasectomy reversal.
The embryo transfer procedure with IVF is usually the last step of in-vitro fertilzation.
Factors affecting low birthweight after assisted reproduction technology: difference between transfer of fresh and cryopreserved embryos suggests an adverse effect of oocyte collection
ART stands for Assisted Reproductive Technology which includes all fertility treatments in which both eggs and sperm are handled.
Getting pregnant is a matter of probability. Sperm plays a huge factor in this probability. There are certain factors that can improve your your chances of conceiving "naturally" each month.
