3 Recent IVF and Fertility Advancements You Need to Know

Success rates for fertility treatments have dramatically improved in the past few decades. Many couples willing to have a baby in their 30s, find it difficult to conceive naturally, and this is when they look for treatment options and therapy that stimulate their chances of getting pregnant.

Over the decades, medical science has made numerous advancements in the field of infertility. If you are planning to consider IVF treatment in Pune, here are a few things you need to remain updated with:

Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening

It refers to a process in which the genetic testing of the embryos (created through IVF) are conducted, before transferring it to the mother’s womb. The main goal of this screening is to detect any genetic abnormalities in the embryo, such as extra chromosomes and large sections of DNA. The presence of any defects increases the risk of pregnancy failure or miscarriage.

With the introduction of PreImplantation genetic screening, our infertility specialist in Pune can minimize the risk of miscarriage to attain a healthy and successful pregnancy.

Reduction of multiple pregnancies

In the traditional method of IVF, it was standard practice to implant two or more embryos inside the mother’s womb in the hope that at least one out of three will attain a successful pregnancy. This method has also increased the chances of patients giving birth to the twins and facing significant complications at the time of giving birth. The economic condition of the patients was also a huge matter of concern.

With new advancements in IVF treatments focus on transferring a single embryo (created through IVF). The latest screening technology made it easier for infertility specialists to detect a chromosomally normal and healthy embryo and move it to the woman’s uterus it to attain a successful pregnancy.
Three-Parent Embryos
This new method involves creating a healthy embryo by using the genetic material from 3 parents – the mother, the father, and a woman with healthy mitochondria. This method is recommended in cases where the female suffers from mitochondrial disease, and the risk of passing those disease to her child is higher. Mitochondrial diseases can cause severe health conditions, such as hearing impairment, vision impairment, and muscle weakness.

Under this method, the infertility specialist takes the DNA from the nucleus of an egg from a woman with mitochondrial disease and insert it inside the egg of another woman (the mother of the child) and then fertilize it with the male’s (the father) sperm.

This method has yet to undergo further studies and a good understanding of the long-term impact on manipulating the embryos. Also, this method raises concern for ethical and sociological values which needs to be addressed.
