IVF(In vitro fertilization): Procedure, Success rate, type & benefits

In this video SimpliHealth expert Gynaecologist Dr. Preeti Jindal is talking about IVF(In vitro fertilization) and its Procedure, Success rate, type & benefits.

What is IVF(In vitro fertilization)? And IVF Success Rate

In IVF, the eggs are removed from the body under anesthesia, and the sperm of your partner fertilizes them. And after the formation of embryos, they are transferred again into the body. Even if there is an embryo formation and the embryo is stable and beautiful, the process of IVF fails at times because our experts know IVF is not 100% successful. 

IVF procedure: What can be done to improve IVF? And Types of IVF

Many techniques can be used to improve this, out of which one is PGS. In this, embryo biopsy is performed, and experts remove the genetically abnormal embryos from them. And only the good euploid embryos are transferred inside the female body. Similarly, another technique has come, called artificial intelligence on the embryo. The embryo so formed is taken up until the day-five blast stage. And the photograph of the embryo is taken by the electron microscope, and then the photograph is transferred in software. 

This software further analyzes the photograph, calculates and tells us the quality of the embryo and the success rate of the embryo, viability, and will also tell us about the chance of genetic abnormality. This is a very nice technique. The Touch clinic was the first clinic in North India to introduce this technique on site. By visualizing the pictures of the embryo, experts get a clear idea. You must be thinking about what we should choose out of two PGS or Artificial Intelligence. 

IVF Benefits: Which one has more benefits?. 

PGS is a very good technique, but it has a certain disadvantage. The most important constraint is the financial cost. The second is that people fear that since experts perform a biopsy of the embryo so what if the embryo gets damaged. The way this technique is performed here and the skilled embryologist performs this technique, the chance of getting the embryo damaged is very little. But still, anything can happen anytime. So experts can avoid this by using another technique that is artificial intelligence, on embryos. 

In Artificial intelligence on the embryo, only the photograph of the embryo is clicked, and then experts process it. So there is no chance of embryo damage, and secondly, it is cost-effective compared to PGS. The gold standard is PGS because it actually diagnoses and tells us whether the embryo is genetically abnormal or not. If our experts can’t do PGS, then they should next go for artificial intelligence on embryos. If you want more information about this, you can contact me at our clinic or visit our website. Thank you so much, and wishing you a very successful outcome of pregnancy in the future.
