Researchers claim that mapping the genetic code of fertilised eggs may double the success rate of IVF. In a research study done in China, using this new method seventy fertilised eggs from volunteered donors, the removing of left or fragment polar bodies was studied and the full genetic code analys
Intrauterine insemination has been carried out for many years and the recent European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology showed a consistent increase throughout the years reaching in excess of 150,000 IUI cycles in heterosexual couples while close to 30,000 IUI cycles in donor cycles.
Recently, in a study published in the Journal of Assisted Conception, women with normal conception which led to a miscarriage were compared to women who had a miscarriage following IVF. And genetic studies were done on the miscarriage. The conclusion was that IVF does not increase the risk of misca
The problem of multiple pregnancies hangs like a millstone around the neck of ovulation induction and ovarian stimulation for IUI and for IVF/embryo transfer. Multiple pregnancies carry an increased risk of premature delivery (x5), perinatal morbidity and mortality and psychological (and financial)
The release of a mature, fertilizable egg from the dominant follicle is the culmination of a wonderfully integrated and synchronized succession of hormonal actions. The major players in this system are gonadotrophin releasing-hormone (GnRH), FSH (Follicle stimulating hormone), LH , oestrogen and pr
