In spite of following correct protocols, the rate of successful pregnancy is less. It could be because of mother, father or the embryo.
Using following procedures, the success of happy pregnancy improves dramatically:
- Endometrial Receptive Array (ERA): One of them is ERA which stands for Endometrial Receptive Array, Which involves personalized implantation window for embryo transfer. It indicates the right time to implant the embryo and results in improved success than ERA.
- Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS): It is the screening and diagnosis of possible gene abnormalities, which also allows doctors to select embryos that are the healthiest and then implant only healthy ones back into the womb (uterus). There is a greater chance of conception and pregnancy, and this helps to reduce the risks of children being born with genetic disorders.
- Magnetic Activated Cell Sorting for Sperm Selection (MACS): The next technique is MACS. Sperm with defective DNA often leads to a defective fetus and a high risk of miscarriage. To reduce the number of fragile sperm cells, they are “marked” with“microbeads” and put through a special sorting/filtration process so they are then allowed to impregnate the ova. Here there is an improved chance of having a healthy embryo.
The methods for evaluation of male infertility have typically been limited to a semen analysis measuring count, motility, and morphology of the sperm. New studies suggest that sperm with certain levels of DNA fragmentation serve as a strong predictor of reduced male fertility.
The Sperm Chromatin Structure Assay (SCSA), is a test to measure the level of DNA fragmentation in the sperm, to enhance the diagnosis of and treatment for male infertility. EmbryoScope is a revolutionary IVF incubator with a built-in microscope which combines time-lapse viewing of embryos during the culture and the latest incubator technology. Time-Lapse Embryo Imaging can be used safely and continuously to monitor embryos during the whole incubation period. The analysis of the time-lapse images and videos enables the embryologists to select the embryo with the highest chances of implanting in the uterus, thereby increasing your chances of having a baby.
