Basic treatments at Indo Nippon IVF, Mumbai:
IVF is a complex treatment which comprises of a lot of different mini treatments to begin with at low cost IVF Treatment. We at Indo Nippon IVF offer a comprehensive range of infertility treatments starting from basic to advance.
Some of the basic treatments that are offered by Indo Nippon IVF are:
Ovulation is a process in which a woman releases eggs from her ovaries. If the process doesn’t happen naturally it is induced, the process is called Ovulation Induction. The most common factors involved in the failure to ovulate are stress, PCOS, increase and decrease in the weight. The goal of ovulation induction is to increase the number of eggs released per cycle. More the eggs that are released more are the chances for successful fertilization. Certain medications are used to induce ovulation like Clomiphen citrate, Aromatase inhibitors, Insulin sensitizing agents and Gonadotrophins.
Risks involved in Ovulation Induction-
Ovulation Induction medication causes swelling in the ovaries resulting in ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome. Some of the common symptoms are-
- Weight gain
- Blurry vision
- Loss of breath
Benefits of Ovulation Induction-
Ovulation Induction is a non expensive and non invasive step as compared to other types of treatments such as IVF and IUI. So it is preferred over all the other steps of infertility.
Timed intercourse is a process in which the ovarian cycle is monitored via ultrasound and sex is timed and performed at the time of maximum chances of fertilization. During a woman’s monthly cycle she is the most fertile approximately 5 or 6 days before she ovulates and 24 hours after ovulation. These six days are most fertile days for a woman. A proper timed intercourse which goes well with the ovulation date increases the chances of getting pregnant.
Timed intercourse is considered to be the very safe and a very non expensive treatment that can be implemented to achieve a good chance of getting pregnant.
Intrauterine insemination is a process in which a sperm is placed directly into the uterus to facilitate fertilization. The process aims at increasing the number of sperms that reach the fallopian tube thus increasing the chances of fertilization.
The following steps happen in IUI-
The process starts with pre IUI checkup in which the fertility specialist takes note of your general health and assesses your hormone levels. The women are given fertility drugs to induce the ovulation rate and the entire cycle is monitored.
The sperm sample is taken either from the partner or from a donor and then washed and prepared for insemination. The washing is done to remove potentially toxic chemicals. After washing the sperm sample becomes concentrated because of which the most healthy and motile sperm reaches the egg.
The prepared sperm is then injected into the uterus using a special technique.
Why is IUI used?
IUI is most commonly used in the following scenarios-
- Low sperm count
- Single woman wishing to conceive
- Same sex couple wishing to conceive
- Unexplained infertility
- Avoid passing a genetic defect onto the child
Risks involved in IUI-
IUI is a simple process without involving any major problems. But every medical procedure has some amount of risks involved. In case of IUI they are:
Infection-There is a chance of catching some infection during or after the procedure.
Spotting- The placement of catheter in the in the uterus might end up in a little amount of vaginal bleeding. This has no affect on the pregnancy though.
Multiple pregnancies-There is a slight chance of a multiple pregnancy in case of IUI. It is a result of the ovulation induction process that is a part of this whole process. More eggs are released; as a result more have the exposure to fertilize with the sperm.
