      • IUI:
        Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.
      • IVF :
        The process of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is a laboratory procedure where the egg is fertilized with the sperm in a laboratory dish and is implanted into the woman’s uterus.
      • ICSI :
        intracytoplasmic sperm injection, a technique for in vitro fertilization in which an individual sperm cell is introduced into an egg cell. Sperm freezing is a process of preserving the sperm for future use, for artificial insemination or for donation
        Embryo freezing (cryopreservation) is a method of preserving the viability of embryos be carefully cooling them to very low temperatures (-196oC). This is carried out in the laboratory using specialized freezing equipment and the embryos can then be safely stored in liquid nitrogen for extended periods.

Diagnostic & Correctional Procedures

    • Tuboplasty ( Re Canalization )
    • HSG – Laparoscopy
    • Allied Services Like Egg, Sperm

What is artificial insemination with Donor sample (AID) or Donor Insemination (DI)?
In as many as 30 % of infertile couples, the male is responsible for infertility. A significant percentage of these males do not father children despite various treatments including ICSI. The solution is inseminating their wives with the semen of another male (donor) at the time of her ovulation. This procedure is called AID or DI.

 

Who can benefit from AID?

  1. AID (Artificial Insemination Donor ) is generally advocated for males with low semen counts (Oligospermia or zero counts) (Azoospermia), where treatment with drugs, surgery and ART treatments like AIH, IUI, and ICSI have proven unsuccessful. It is an acceptable alternative to adoption.
  2. It is also suggested to males who may have a genetic disorder that could get transmitted to their progeny.
  3. It may be used as a backup to the procedure of TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction) and ICSI that is done for males with non-obstructive Azoospermia, especially when no sperms are found in the testicular biopsy. (see Nonsurgical Sperm Retrieval)

How is the Semen obtained in Semen Banking?
A donor male donates the semen after he is screened and tested as safe for various infections such as HIV, Hepatitis and other Venereal Diseases. At BabiesandUs lab, we test the donor for infections every 3 months.

Fertility-FAQ’s:

 

What are different Sperm retrieval techniques in cases of Azoospermia?

TESA, PESA, MESA, TESE

How long should one wait before repeating a Surgical Sperm retrieval?

At least six months period

What is the most common cause of Male Infertility?

Although there are many causes of Male Infertility, Varicocele is the most common. A clinically significant varicocele can be identified is nearly 40 % of a man with primary Infertility and up to 80% of men with secondary infertility.

Male infertility is usually caused by problems that affect either sperm transport or sperm production. Male infertility is diagnosed when, after testing both partners, reproductive problems have been found in the male. The “male factor” contributes to infertility around half the time, and about one-third of the time, it’s the main cause of infertility. Hegde hospital provides male infertility treatment based on diagnostic tests such as Physical examination, Sperm analysis, Hormone evaluation, Testicular biopsy, and Genetic testing.

HISTORY OF MALE PARTNER

Medication onset of puberty, past history of mumps, Orchitis, Sexually transmitted diseases, Cystic Fibrosis, Anosmia etc.
Surgical – Maldescendent testes, hernia repair Varicocele
Family History- genetic disorders
Medications-including anabolic steroids
Occupation exposure to excessive heat, chemicals, excessive physical activity
Abuse – Alcohol, Smoking, drugs etc.

Female Infertility

HISTORY OF FEMALE PARTNER

  • Age
  • Occupation
  • Previous Pregnancies
  • Regularity of menstruation
  • Past menstrual history
  • Past medical history
  • Intercurrent illnesses/ medications/ drugs/ Alcohol
  • Previous contraception

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Premature Ovarian failure

Infertility FAQ’s

 

Who is more likely to have a problem with infertility -the Man or Woman?

Although traditionally considered a female problem, Infertility(male infertility or female infertility) is typically Multifactorial and many involve both partners. Approximately 40 % of cases involve a female factor; 30 % a malefactor; and 20% combined male and female factors. Approximately 10 -15 % of cases remain unexplained.

How common is Infertility? When should an evaluation be performed?

Up to 15% of all couples attempting conception are unsuccessful within the first year. However, this number increases with the age of the couple.
