Making Infertility Treatments Care Safer and Successful


How do I conceive? And how can I achieve successful pregnancy?

These are the common questions that every couple starts to think after six months or one year of trying to get pregnant. There are those who are concerned about experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. But after marriage, most of the couples find in a perplexing situation, if they are unable to conceive despite having unprotected intercourse for more than year. There are now more treatment options by which couples can have children. And the most advanced are the assisted reproductive technologies.

Assisted Reproductive Technologies have dramatically changed over the past 25 years. It’s because the science, the success rates and the process had advanced rapidly. The patients struggling with infertility have number of options and often pursue ART treatments to start a family.

Today\’s infertility patients are getting a lot of information through online. However, sometimes, they don’t get the right information which they are seeking for their treatment. They can gather it only from medical doctor. In some cases, they regret they took the decision of going to a reproductive specialist at a later stage. This creates confusion among the patients who are desperate to have a baby right after their marriage.

Patients who plan to go for IVF sometimes feel that there are complications of multiple gestations and delivers, which is untrue, nowadays. When it comes to IVF, the main challenge for the doctors is to provide you with the one healthy baby.

Just a few years ago, the process of deciding which embryos to transfer back to the uterus was largely based on appearance or what\’s called morphology. Single embryo transfer is a new and successful paradigm shift which includes extended embryo culture, blastocyst stage biopsy, comprehensive chromosome screening (a process that allows selection and transfer of the most viable embryos), and endometrial synchrony. This paradigm is making the promise of one baby at a time a reality for many patients, providers and employers.
