A complete check-up of both the male and the female partner is carried out to investigate the root cause of infertility. The tests are minimal and limited to three— (1) blood test of the partners, (2) USG of the female (3) semen analysis of the male. These simple tests help narrow down a couple’s individual problem from a wide set of causes and pinpoint the required solution. In simple words, our minimal tests form the basis for the best treatment options which are individualized for each patient.
A woman may be unable to ovulate due to various internal factors. An ovulation induction can be opted then, to stimulate the follicles and thus trigger ovulation. Using hormonal therapy ovulation may be induced to increase the chances for conception.
An assisted conception treatment, the Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is usually an option for infertility. This painless procedure offers the best results for patients who are suited for it. At Dr. Archana IVF, it’s not about what we do but how we do it and that’s what makes a difference in the treatment protocols established here as compared to other centers. Our carefully developed quality protocols are what enable us to achieve high success rates.
More popularly known as the Test Tube Baby technique, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an intricate set of procedures used in the treatment of infertility and assisted conception. The most important feature for a high success rate with this procedure is a Clean Room IVF Lab, which provides clean air in the IVF OT complex of the hospital. This enables us to handle your gamete which is potential human life forms with the utmost care in a secure and hygienic environment that is suitable to grow embryos, similar to a mother’s womb. The procedure is further enhanced with our state of the art assisted reproductive technology equipment.
Initially considered a boon for couples suffering from male infertility, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is now a technique that’s used worldwide for ART procedure. It involves the injecting of quality sperm inside the egg by an embryologist with the use of a needle as thin as a single strand of hair. ICSI is the most successful and preferred form of treatment as it offers better success rates than IVF. At Dr. Archana IVF, the procedure is performed under Clean Room IVF Lab standards.
Blastocyst Culture refers to the procedure in which developing embryos formed after ICSI or IVF is cultured in specialized media and environment, and then monitored through its basic formative stages. This ensures that the embryo develops perfectly, thereby increasing chances of pregnancy. Later, the highest-quality of embryo that offers the best potential to grow is selected for implantation. Overall, this procedure has shown better pregnancy results.
Laser Assisted Hatching is a successful technique in IVF procedure. Like other eggs, human embryos too have a shell, the thickness of which matters in the success rate of implantation. This procedure enables the embryo to hatch after its overly thick shell is weakened with the help of a laser. Women facing recurrent implantation failure, IVF failure, elderly age, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), or a previous history of tuberculosis are suited for this procedure.
At Dr. Archana IVF, we offer egg, sperm and embryo donor and surrogacy services so that you are well on your way to experiencing parenthood.Egg Donation:
Increased age is a constraint in IVF procedures as it affects the number and quality of female eggs, leading to a poor outcome in IVF cycles. With the aid of egg donation this challenge can be overcome. Even ladies who have attained menopause can be given a chance to experience motherhood with the help of egg donation. The donors are completely screened through various investigations before being recruited for egg donation.Sperm Donation:
Often, chances are that the sperm count in the male semen is nil and efforts to retrieve the sperm from the testes may not be fruitful for successful conception. In such a case, sperm donation can prove to be beneficial. Donated sperm that is completely screened and of good quality can then be used for a likely pregnancy in the female partner.Embryo Donation:
Couples who have lost out on their chances to conceive a genetic offspring are recommended embryo donation, which is also referred to as a form of third-party reproduction. The donated embryo is implanted into the female uterus to facilitate pregnancy and childbirth.Surrogacy:
A couple may be unable to conceive despite being fertile. This could be due to the female partner having a weak uterus or facing an infertility issue like fibroids. In such cases, gestational surrogacy is adopted by the couple. IVF is carried out and the couple’s developing embryo is then transferred to the surrogate’s womb for successful conception.
We offer numerous fertility enhancing surgeries to women who are suffering from problems that restrict natural conception, some of which include clipping of tubes filled with water (Hydro Salphinx), removal of Chocolate Cyst, Polypectomy, and Myomectomy. These can be carried out using Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy, enabling a shorter stay and better post-operative outcome.Laparoscopy
Dr. Archana IVF strives to provide dedicated healthcare solutions by offering simple to advanced laparoscopic treatments. We are equipped with advanced laparoscopic instruments and equipment to ensure that procedures are safe and effective. This combined with the eminent skill set of our fertility specialist gives way for world-class treatment in the comforts of an established day centre.Hysteroscopy
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure to view the inside of the uterine cavity through the insertion of a hysteroscope. Pre-IVF hysteroscopy helps in improving the success rate of the IVF cycle. Apart from diagnosis, the procedure can simultaneously treat various conditions in the cervix or womb.
When combined with IVF, Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) can be performed to profile embryos prior to their implantation in the uterus. Using PGD and PGS, an embryo that is free of genetic anomalies can be selected for implantation. PGD and PGS also reduce the risk of passing on hereditary diseases, risk of recurrent miscarriage, and increase the likelihood of pregnancy.
Endometrial Receptivity Assay (ERA) is a test that ensures better implantation rates of the embryo by establishing the best day for the transfer. The test is recommended for patients who have experienced recurrent failure in implantation, even with high quality embryos. With ERA, embryo is transferred in a personalized way, thereby increasing the chances of pregnancy after assisted conception.
Male factor infertility sums up to about 30-40% of the reasons for infertility and one of the most common causes for it is a nil or low sperm count. Due to stress factors and lifestyle changes, this problem has increased. In cases where there is no sperm present in the male’s semen, its collection is fairly possible using Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA) or Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (PESA) techniques. Dr. Archana possesses expertise in Surgical Sperm Retrieval (TESA/PESA) techniques with high sperm retrieval rates. This surgical procedure requires a short hospital stay and recovery is rapid.
Egg cryopreservation is a procedure where a woman’s eggs (oocytes) are retrieved and preserved via freezing during her childbearing or fertile phase in order to use at a future date when she is ready for pregnancy. This procedure serves as a solution for women who cannot deal with pregnancy in their fertile years due to studies, career, or other personal situations. It is recommended for women who have been diagnosed with cancer, before they undergo treatment which can jeopardize their fertility.Sperm Cryopreservation
Sperm cryopreservation, also called sperm banking, is a procedure in which sperms are preserved via freezing to use at a future date. It offers men the opportunity to become biological fathers in times where their fertility is compromised. The procedure is generally recommended to men who have been diagnosed with cancer, before undergoing treatment but is also opted by men who are not ready for parenthood or work in foreign countries.Embryo Cryopreservation
Couples postponing parenthood for various reasons like financial situations, medical conditions, or career demands choose embryo cryopreservation which preserves the embryo at sub-zero temperatures for conception in the future. When the couple is ready for pregnancy the embryo is thawed and used for implantation. Frozen Embryo Replacement Cycle under IVF offers high success rates for pregnancy.Best Fertility Hospital In Chennai
