Specialist Care | ICSI |Blastocyst Culture & Transfer
Primary Care treatments tend to be quite general. For example, there can be a number of different reasons for weight gain, and thus a number of different treatments. The same goes for conditions such as depression, lifestyle, stress and prescription medication. Once we are certain that none of the “Primary Care” treatments are applicable to you, we will start looking at Specialist Care options. These treatments are a lot more specific than the Primary Care treatments, and we will only embark on this journey once we are absolutely sure none of the other procedures are relevant. This will ensure that you don’t waste money on a Specialist Care treatment when a Primary Care treatment was what you really needed. Let’s analyse the Specialist Care options that are available, should you need them.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is a procedure that has revolutionized the treatment of male infertility. During this procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into the partner's egg. As a result, men with a failed vasectomy reversal or with a congenital (from birth) absence of the vas deferens now have a high chance of fatherhood without using donor sperm. This procedure has decreased the need for donor sperm and almost eliminated the concept of untreatable male infertility. ICSI may be performed due to failed fertilization with IVF or male infertility such as low count, low motility and poor quality of sperm.
Blastocyst Culture and Transfer
Recent advances in blastocyst culture and transfer have resulted in improved IVF pregnancy rates and reduced multiple pregnancy rates. Traditionally, embryos are transferred to the uterus on day three after fertilization and it is not uncommon to transfer three or four embryos. However, it is now possible to grow embryos in the laboratory to the blastocyst stage of development, which occurs on day five after fertilization. Typically, the strongest, healthiest embryos make it to blastocyst stage as they have survived key growth and division processes and have a better chance of implanting once transferred. The selection of potentially more viable embryos allows the embryologist to transfer fewer embryos, often one or two, lowering the risk of high order multiples while maintaining high pregnancy rates.
Men’s Clinic - treating infertility in men
In 40% of infertility cases, issues relating to men are the cause of infertility. Infertility in men can be a very private matter because of cultural stigma and other factors. We understand this and will treat it with the utmost confidentiality. First we will do a sperm analysis in order to diagnose whether there are any problaems with the sperm.This way, we can measure how much semen is aproduced, as well as the quality of sperm. If necessary we can assist with sperm collection and selection.
