Frozen Embryo Transfer

In case of frozen embryos which need to be transferred in a subsequent cycle – a procedure needs to be followed.

Then endogenous hormones of the women are suppressed and the lining of the uterus is made to develop by giving oral and injectable medicines (hormones). When the lining of the uterus is found to be optimal as detected by ultrasonography..the frozen embryos are thawed and transferred by an extremely delicate procedure.

The post thawing recovery rate of embryos is excellent following vitrification (specialized technique of embryo freezing).

The success rate of this procedure is 40 to 60%.

Use of Donor Oocytes for IVF/ICSI:
The effect of age on female fertility is quiet profound, especially after the age of 35. After 35 there is a marked decrease in both the quality and quantity of oocytes. This decrease in the ovarian reserve can be monitored by a number of techniques such as-

  1. Antral follicle count ( USG )
  2. & blood hormonal tests.

In women in whom there is a marked decrease in oocyte quantity and quality, we sometimes have to use eggs from a suitable donor.

These donors are anonymous and their identity by law cannot be disclosed to the couple for whom the eggs will be used. Similarly, the donor cannot know about the couple who will be receiving her eggs so as to safeguard the interest of the commissioning parents.

The procedure involves 3 steps.

  1. To synchronize the menstrual cycle of the donor and the woman who will eventually receive the embryo ( commissioning mother who could not produce her own eggs )
  2. Stimulation of the lining of the uterus of the commissioning mother to receive the embryo eventually post IVF, ICSI
  3. Suppression of the natural body hormones of the donor by giving injections.
  4. Stimulation of the ovaries of the donor by injections to produce a number of eggs
  5. Surgical removal of eggs from the donor
  6. Performing IVF or ICSI on the donor eggs using sperms from the commissioning father and placing the embryos in the incubator &
  7. Eventually transferring the embryos into the uterus of the commissioning mother.

The child born out of donor oocytes is legally the offspring of the commissioning parents. He/ She will not know the identity of the donor.

The commissioning parents can know about details of the donor like height, complexion, eye color, hair color, blood group etc.

All donors are pretested for infectious diseases like HIV, HBsAg,, HCV, VDRL, Malaria etc. Only healthy and fit donors are taken for the job.

In return for their services, the donors are entitled to financial rennumeration.
