Assisted reproductive technologies
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. The embryo(s) is then transferred to the uterus.
There are five basic steps in the IVF and embryo transfer process:
Step 1: Fertility medications are prescribed to stimulate egg production. Multiple eggs are desired because some eggs will not develop or fertilize after retrieval. A transvaginal ultrasound is used to examine the ovaries, and blood test samples are taken to check hormone levels.
Step 2: Eggs are retrieved through a minor surgical procedure that uses ultrasound imaging to guide a hollow needle through the pelvic cavity to remove the eggs. Medication is provided to reduce and remove potential discomfort.
Step 3: The male is asked to produce a sample of sperm, which is prepared for combining with the eggs.
Step 4: In a process called insemination, the sperm and eggs are mixed together and stored in a laboratory dish to encourage fertilization. In some cases where there is a lower probability of fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be used. Through this procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into the egg in an attempt to achieve fertilization. The eggs are monitored to confirm that fertilization and cell division are taking place. Once this occurs, the fertilized eggs are considered embryos.
Step 5: The embryos are usually transferred into the woman’s uterus three to five days following egg retrieval and fertilization. A catheter or small tube is inserted into the uterus to transfer the embryos. This procedure is painless for most women, although some may experience mild cramping. If the procedure is successful, implantation typically occurs around six to ten days following egg retrieval.
Preimplantation Genetic Testing
It is now possible to test embryos created by In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) for genetic diseases by utilizing Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT). The primary goal of PGT is to identify genetic defects in embryos created through IVF before transferring them to the uterus, thus decreasing pregnancy terminations and births with genetic abnormalities.
Be sure in safe childbirth
Being a part of the multidisciplinary clinic, the Maternity Department of the Scandinavia Clinic allows to solve any obstetric problems.
The continuity of succession between obstetricians-gynaecologists at the Outpatient Department, doctors at the Maternity Department and neonatologists at the Paediatric Department, coupled with the possibility to be consulted by any adult or children's focused specialists at the Outpatient Department and the Surgical Hospital guarantee the safety and comfort at all stages of labour process.
The Clinic offers the possibility to select a doctor for individual labour management. If needed, the experienced anaesthesiologists perform quality and safe anaesthesia. The mother and the newborn are fully supplied with all necessary care products during their stay at the Maternity Department, and a highly qualified team doctors and nurses guarantees an attentive and caring attitude to each family.
Oncofertility is an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of oncology and reproductive medicine that expands fertility options for cancer survivors.
Survival rates among young cancer patients have steadily increased over the past four decades in part because of the development of more effective cancer treatments. Today, both women and men can look forward to life after cancer, yet many may face the possibility of infertility as a result of the disease itself or these lifesaving treatments. Techniques for preserving fertility offer women the possibility of postponing motherhood if they wish to do so or who have cancer.
