A Complete Guide to a Successful IVF Treatment Plan

Gynecology ExamA complete IVF treatment plan requires the expertise use of advanced ancillary treatment options to increase the odds of conception. Advanced IVF ancillary procedures greatly improve your chances of conceiving successfully and giving birth to a healthy baby.

Complete IVF Treatment Plan

A complete array of advanced IVF ancillary treatment options are recommended for very specific infertility diagnoses and family planning scenarios.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) – pronounced icsee

ICSI is an in vitro lab procedure that injects a single sperm directly into an egg using a very small and sharp hollow needle. ICSI increases the chances of successful fertilization of the egg.

Benefit: Only a few eggs need be produced by the female patient during a fresh IVF cycle where ICSI is being used in the fertilization stage in vitro.

ICSI is typically recommended in these cases:

  • Male-factor infertility
  • Previous IVF cycles resulted in failed fertilization
  • When eggs have been frozen

Genetic Testing

Some cases of infertility call for genetic testing.

  • Preimplantation Screening (PGS) – irregular chromosome count
  • Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) – genetic disease detection

These genetic testing procedures in vitro improve the chances of conceiving.

After embryos are created in vitro, each is tested via a small biopsy on the third or fifth day of development.

PGS is used when there is a patient history of recurrent pregnancy or failure of embryo implantation. PGS is also used to detect the embryo’s gender for family planning purpose.

PGD tests for cases in which one of the intended parents is a carrier of a genetic disease or has a family history of genetic disorders.
