Services offered by Iris IVF Centre at Saraogi Hospital:

1. Intrauterine Insemination / IUI :

Intrauterine Insemination / IUI
Intrauterine Insemination / IUI

IUI is a non-invasive infertility procedure where the sperm is placed in the woman’s uterus at the time when she is ovulating. It is a simple procedure which is done in the doctor’s clinic without the use of anesthesia.


IUI is mainly used in the following conditions:
  • • Low sperm count or mobility
  • • Ejaculation dysfunction
  • • Cervical mucus problem
  • • Unexplained infertility
  • • Hindrance due to cervical scar tissue


However, IUI is not recommended in case you have endometriosis, pelvic infection or disease of the fallopian tubes.

IUI procedure:

IUI procedure is undertaken with or without ovulation-stimulating medications. The doctor performs this at the time of ovulation which is monitored with the help of ultrasound and blood test.

During the procedure, the male partner provides the semen sample which is washed in the authorized lab to remove the seminal fluid and motile sperm and it is concentrated into a small volume. Washing of the sperm is also done to cleanse it from potentially toxic chemicals.

Then the doctor will transfer the purified sperm near the opening of the fallopian tubes using a sterile cannula and a no-touch technique. IUI is a very common infertility treatment in Mumbai having the success rate of 15 to 20%.

Preparation of the semen varies from person to person depending on the sample. There are many types of methods used for washing and preparing the sperm such as:

  • • Simple sperm wash
  • • Swim Up technique
  • • Single Density Gradient Centrifugation
  • • Double density Gradient Centrifugation

These methods have to be chosen with care according to the requirement of the patient. However, not all the clinics providing infertility treatment in Mumbai offer all these techniques neither do they have the knowledge regarding them. So, it is necessary you choose the fertility center for your treatment with care.

Also, it is important that the sperm washing is either done in the same center or a close by place from where insemination is done as the sperms die in large number with every hour of delay from washing to insemination.

We at Iris IVF Centre provide all the above-mentioned techniques and our lab is available in the hospital premises itself so that valuable time is not wasted.

2. Donor Sperm Insemination:

Donor Sperm Insemination

You may need a donor sperm insemination if you are suffering from the complete absence of sperms or azoospermia. Though, you may also have the option of undergoing testicular biopsy during which the doctor tries to retrieve the sperm if present from the testicles.

If the doctor is successful in retrieving the sperms then these sperms may be used for the IVF treatment. For this, there has to be a careful coordination in the process of eggs retrieval from the wife after controlled ovarian hyper stimulation and the procedure of testicular biopsy.

Another option is donor insemination. Here the sperm sample is obtained from a donor having similar blood group as your husband.




At Saraogi Hospital, a reputed IVF centre providing infertility treatment in Mumbai we are extra particular when using donor sperm. We screen the donor to rule out diseases such as genetic and blood-borne diseases, HIV, HBsAg and VDRL. Only after proper scrutiny do we collect the sperm sample and quarantine it for a period of six months. After six months the donor is tested again to rule out blood-borne diseases.

After undergoing all this process and checking the sperms motility and morphology finally, the donor sperm is used for donor insemination. This procedure is similar to IUI, however, the only difference here is the use of donor sperms. The baby born through this process has 50% of parent’s genetic material and the success rate of donor insemination is around 15-20%.

3. IVF and ICSI:

IVF and ICSI

When talking about infertility treatment, IVF and ICSI are their main segments which fall under test tube baby procedure. In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure where the female eggs (oocyte) are incubated with around 50000 sperms so that the eggs are fertilized in a natural way. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the woman’s uterus so that it can result in pregnancy.

On the other hand, Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a more advanced method which is very commonly used for infertility treatment in Mumbai. During this method, the single sperm is injected into each egg with the help of micromanipulator. ICSI treatment has a higher success rate than IVF as the best sperms are carefully chosen using microscopes to fertilize the eggs because of which better quality embryos are produced.

Many clinics are available for the IVF treatment in Mumbai but not all of these centres are equipped to meet the stringent criteria that are needed to make them one of the topmost clinics to provide the best IVF treatment in Mumbai.

Over the years, with the advancement in medical science, IVF treatment has grown into a big healthcare industry due to which many clinics are set up all over Mumbai to cater to this branch of gynecology.

However, you should be extra careful while choosing the clinic and the specialist for your IVF treatment in Mumbai, as the success of your treatment depends a lot on them. So prior to choosing an IVF clinic for your treatment you should check out for these parameters.

  • • It is of utmost importance that the IVF centre has their own in-house andrology and IVF lab where all the facilities are available under one roof including sonography. In addition to it, they need the services of specialists who can handle the IVF cases. Unfortunately, many clinics claiming to be the best centres for IVF treatment in Mumbai do not have an in-house lab.
  • • Apart from this, the center must have an experienced and trained IVF specialist who has undergone additional training other than the basic training in obstetrics and gynecology.
  • • Having an expert embryologist at the clinic is one of the most crucial criteria that make it an IVF clinic of repute.

At IRIS IVF Centre at Saraogi Hospital all the above parameters are taken care of and if you are looking out for an IVF treatment in Mumbai then visiting our clinic can maximize your chances of success.

4. Surrogacy:

Surrogacy

Surrogacy is an exclusive fertility treatment that is available at only a few centers in Mumbai as it is a highly specialized field. Here, couples who are unable to conceive outsource a womb to carry the pregnancy to term.

In most cases, a gestational surrogate is used for surrogacy in India. Here the eggs are collected from the mother and are fertilized with the sperm of the father and the resultant embryo is then placed in the uterus of the gestational surrogate who carries the baby till birth. However, she is not genetically related to the child as it was not her eggs that were used.

5. Egg, Sperm & Embryo Freezing:

Egg, Sperm & Embryo Freezing
Egg, Sperm & Embryo Freezing

Nowadays, people tend to freeze their eggs, sperms and embryos for various reasons like advancing age which decreases the quality of the eggs and sperms or treatments like chemotherapy and radiation which has a devastating effect on the fertility of the person who may find it hard to conceive naturally. So with the help of cryopreservation, they have the option of having their biological children later on in life.

Another important factor for opting for cryopreservation is the excess embryos which are left unused after your ICSI or IVF treatment. Usually, during IVF treatment around 2 to 3 embryos are placed in the uterus depending upon the age of the woman, the rest of the embryos are left unused

So, it is best to freeze and store the leftover good quality embryos with vitrification so that they can be used at a later date in case your IVF cycle fails and you want to opt for another cycle or are planning to have another baby. By doing so, you can get the subsequent cycle at a fraction of the original cost by utilizing your frozen embryos after thawing them. And mark you; the success rates are equal or more than the IVF treatment done using fresh embryos.

We provide this valuable service at Iris IVF Centre at Saraogi Hospital where the embryo recovery rate after defreezing is more than 95% making it one of the most sophisticated centres for IVF treatment in Mumbai.

6. Frozen Embryo Transfer:

Frozen Embryo Transfer
Frozen Embryo Transfer

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) is a process where the frozen embryos from the previous IVF cycle are thawed and placed in the woman’s uterus during the subsequent cycle. By doing so, the woman is spared from undergoing a cycle of hormone stimulation and egg collection.

The FET procedure is very beneficial as it substantially cuts down the cost of the future IVF cycles. Most clinics offering IVF treatment in Mumbai encourage the patients to undergo the second cycle using FET as it is cost-effective and gives wonderful results.

However, before the actual transfer, the woman’s uterus is developed through medications and when it reaches the optimum level the embryos are thawed and transferred to the uterus.

And the best part is the recovery rate of the frozen embryo is excellent and the success rate of the cycle is on par or better than the IVF cycle done using fresh embryos. We believe that this procedure gives better results and thus recommend it to patients visiting us at IRIS IVF Center at Saraogi Hospital.

At IRIS IVF Center, we also perform this procedure using donor eggs as the quality and quantity of the eggs in women in their mid-thirties decreases. You will have to pay the donor for their services and we do not disclose the identity of both the donor and the commissioning parent to each other so as to protect their interest and the offspring born out of the donor’s eggs is legally the child of the commissioning parents.

But at Saraogi Hospital we do provide the details such as blood group, height, eye color, hair color and the complexion of the donor so that you can choose the donor which matches your attributes. Also, the donor is checked thoroughly to rule out any infectious diseases such as AIDS, VDRL, HCV, etc.
