If you have considered all your thoughts and finally decided to apply for in vitro fertilization program, you should be aware of all its possible pitfalls. But how can you be sure that nothing else will stand between you and your dream to have a desired baby? Let`s take a closer look at the PGS process, cost and testing procedure. This article will also give you an understanding of the prime preimplantation genetic screening pros and cons.
Advanced techniques for infertility treatment are transforming the lives of families worldwide. They make parenthood a reality for those who once didn’t have hope. The sperm washing process is one of these unique techniques. It helps couples with fertility problems to conceive genetically related healthy children. It’s also an effective solution for the serodiscordant couples where the man is HIV-positive and the woman is HIV-negative.
You finally got pregnant, after a few trials, and gave birth to your baby. You managed to accept the fact that you wouldn’t be genetically connected with your child. After all, you carried that baby for nine months – and the child was yours. The thought that the baby was still half your partner’s, genetically, was somehow comforting. Yet at this moment, you’re watching your newborn, and the baby doesn’t seem to look like your partner. The baby doesn’t look like your donor either.
Our top priority is to support our patients in having the maximum chance of pregnancy success, with the smallest risks. Women who are 35 and older are increasingly turning to a procedure of single embryo transfer accompanied by comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) and enjoying great outcomes. Fortunately, single embryo transfer significantly reduces the risks linked to multiples and is an excellent choice for many patients.
While you may be feeling more than ready to move forward and have a transfer as soon as possible, it’s actually best to wait. The longer an embryo has to develop, the more likely the embryologist will be able to select the highest quality to transfer. It also allows time for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) to screen for genetic abnormalities. A more viable blastocyst means a greater chance of surviving transfer and implantation.
We failed IVF what now? The answer to this question is enormously hard for some of us. Many families struggling to conceive children have undergone repeated cycles of failed in vitro fertilization (IVF), leaving them pretty much convinced that nothing will ever work for them. But, as they say, where there is life, there is hope. Sunshine has accumulated significant experience in helping families who have gone through unsuccessful IVF attempts at other reproductive clinics.
Sunshine helps people of all sexual orientations to build the family they are dreaming of. If you and your partner want to start a family, you may wonder what options you have and how the process looks like. There are two ways for male couples to have a child – using a gestational carrier and traditional surrogacy. At Sunshine, we’ll use your or your partner’s sperm in combination with an egg donated by an egg donor. The egg will be fertilized by IVF and the embryo will be carried by a surrogate mother.
The ability to use the services of an egg donor came as a godsend for many women who have lost their fertility. Many people are aware of the fact that the fertility of a woman begins to decline after she hits the mid-30s. More and more women decide to build a family later in their life; unfortunately, unlike men, their fertility rapidly declines after a certain age and they are unable to have kids.
