Segmented IVF

The endometrial lining is usually less favorable to implantation due to a variety of factors like immunological disruption, unfavorable estrogen/progesterone ratio, changes in hormones. All these can reduce the chances of implantation. Segmented IVF eliminates all these short-comings of conventional IVF as well as removes the risk of OHSS. Our embryo survival rate from the freeze/thaw process is over 99%. This means that there is virtually no loss of embryos during this process. This allows us to very confidently freeze all embryos and use a programmed hormone replacement cycle to create an ideal physiologic endometrial lining and precise timing for the embryo transfer.

In conventional IVF, the woman is given very high dose hormonal injections to make multiple eggs (usually 10—12) in her ovaries. All these eggs are fertilised and between one to three embryos are transferred back into the uterus in the same cycle. The stimulation with these intense drugs does not make for an ideal uterine environment for the embryos. The endometrial lining during an ovarian stimulation cycle is usually less favorable to implantation due to a variety of factors like immunological disruption, unfavorable estrogen/progesterone ratio and changes in hormones. All these can reduce the chances of implantation. Segmented IVF Cycles are able to overcome all these shortcomings of conventional IVF.

Segmentation of IVF cycle means that the embryo transfer is not done in the fresh stimulated cycle. Segmented IVF cycles are ones where all of the embryos are frozen and no fresh embryo transfer is performed. These cryopreserved embryos are subsequently used in a programmed frozen embryo transfer cycle. The embryos are put back in a uterine environment that is more conducive to implantation.

The benefits of Segmented IVF are clear. The Segmented IVF Cycles give higher success rates than conventional IVF. The increased pregnancy rates in these cycles are due to several factors. First, in stimulated IVF cycles, the endometrial lining is slightly out of phase with the embryo development. Secondly, the endometrial development can be over stimulated (thicker) or under developed when compared to normal physiologic cycles. Thirdly, the ovaries in these cycles are hyperstimulated and are at an increased risk for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) should a pregnancy result from the fresh transfer.

Segmented IVF is able to eliminate all of these shortcomings. At Indo Nippon IVF, we use Cryotech Vitrification,  the most efficient method to cryopreserve your precious embryos. Our embryo survival rate from the freeze/thaw process is over 99%. This means that there is virtually no loss of embryos during this process, and we get back all of the embryos that we preserve. This allows us to use a programmed hormone replacement cycle to create an ideal physiologic endometrial lining and precise timing for the embryo transfer. Since the ovaries are not stimulated it eliminates ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

The combination of all these factors have resulted in a much higher pregnancy rates for Segmented IVF Cycles.
