Fresh VS Frozen Embryo Transfers: An Explanation through Comparisons

Fresh VS Frozen Embryo Transfers: An Explanation through Comparisons

Fresh embryo transfers were the only option when In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) was initially introduced due to the limited progress in cryopreservation techniques.

However, over the past years, significant advancements in:

Nowadays Generally FET’s are preferred depending upon various factors: -

  • Age of couple
  • No of oocytes received
  • Quality of embryos
  • Hormonal parameters
  • Adequacy of endometrial lining

Fresh & Frozen Embryo Transfers

Understanding the Differences

Fresh Embryo Transfer

Frozen Embryo Transfer

The Benefits & Drawbacks of Fresh & Frozen Embryo Transfer

Advantages of Fresh Embryo Transfer:

  • The waiting time for fresh embryo transfer is shorter as embryos are transferred soon after fertilization.
  • The embryos are not subjected to the stress of freezing & thawing.
  • Fresh cycle involves the process of ovarian stimulation, which can result in a receptive endometrial lining, if the women is not hyper – responded.

Disadvantages of Fresh Embryo Transfer

  • Ovarian stimulation during fresh cycles may result in OHSS (ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome), a potentially serious condition marked by enlarged & painful ovaries.
  • Fresh transfer is time critical & need to be synchronized with the natural menstrual cycle, providing limited flexibility in terms of timing.

Advantages of Frozen embryo Transfer

  • FET provides a couple who have encountered challenging situations like cancer treatments with the opportunity to have children once their treatments are successfully completed.
  • Reduced risk of ovarian hyperstimulation.

Disadvantages of frozen embryo transfer

  • Not every embryo can withstand the freezing & thawing process, which could lead to a reduced no. of embryos available for transfer.
  • Going through frozen embryo transfer can be quite time consuming.

Factors to consider when deciding between fresh or frozen embryo transfer

  • Personal health
  • Timing flexibility
  • Success rate

How Alcohol & Smoking Affect Male Fertility?

How Alcohol & Smoking Affect Male Fertility?

When it comes to alcohol & male fertility and smoking & male fertility, a multitude of factors complexly knit to determine one’s reproductive health. While enjoying a drink might be a part of a men’s social life, understanding its impact on male fertility is essential for those considering parenthood.
(Converging & connecting a range of adverse effects)

Hormonal Imbalance: Prolonged alcohol consumption disrupts the delicate balance of hormones crucial for reproduction function.

Sperm Production: Excessive alcohol intake can diminish sperm production in testes. This decline in sperm quantity reduces the chances of fertilization.

Sperm Morphology: Alcohol induced oxidative stress can damage sperm DNA, altering their morphology & increasing the likelihood of genetic abnormalities in off springs.

Sperm Motility: Sperm requires optimal motility to navigate the female reproductive tract and reach the egg. Alcohol and smoking impair this ability reducing the chances of sperm successfully fertilizing the egg.

Erectile Dysfunction: The impact of alcohol and smoking on the nervous system can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Fertility Duration: Regular alcohol consumption can prolong the time it takes for a couple to conceive, increasing the duration of attempting pregnancy.

Seminal fluid composition : Alcohol and Smoking can alter the composition of seminal fluid , which provides essential nutrients to sperm . Changes in this composition can impact sperm function and viability.

The Correlation Between Alcohol & Male Fertility
Social alcohol consumption is widespread, yet its impact on sperm & male fertility varies based on the quantity & frequency of consumption. While moderate drinking may not significantly affect fertility, heavy & consistent alcohol can be determined.
Such drinking patterns can lead to the following:

It is crucial to recognize that individual factors, including genetics & overall health can influence male fertility. Alcohol and male fertility are interlinked in many ways for those who are trying to conceive should be cautious about excessive drinking or binge drinking patterns.

Consulting our IVF expert can provide personalized guidance based on individual circumstances.

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

It has been used alongside conventional fertility treatments like In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to improve egg quality , uterine lining thickness and endometrial receptivity , primarily in the treatment of recurrent implantation failure expired once multiple cycles.

What is PRP?

It is a concentrated blood product that contains high percentage of platelets. In general, whole blood is composed of 4 components:-
  • Plasma
  • Platelets
  • RBC’s
  • WBC’s
PRP Process :-

Embryo Freezing (Vitrification)

Embryo Freezing (Vitrification)

Embryo Freezing

Embryo freezing (Vitrification) freezes and stores fertilized eggs for later use. It is often used with fertility treatments that create embryos, such as In vitro fertilization. It can help people preserve fertility and get pregnant in future.

What is embryo freezing?

A process to freeze and store embryos for later use. An embryo is an egg that has been fertilized by a sperm. The process is a way to help people with fertility and reproduction.

Why would you freeze an embryo?

Embryo freezing often occurs after people have treatments to try to get conceive. IVF & ICSI are those procedures which fertilizes the eggs with sperm and they sometimes create an extra embryos.

You may choose to freeze extra embryos and use them later if you want to:

  • Postpone or cancel embryo transfer after an egg is already fertilized.
  • Want to delay pregnancy.
  • Want an option in case early attempts at fertility treatment fails.
  • Embryo freezing is also used for fertility preservation in case of cancer patients before starting chemotherapy or radiation therapy as that treatment could affect their ability to get pregnant.

  2. Blastocyst stage (day 5):-When the single cell has multiplied to between 200-300 cells after 5-6 days.

Is frozen embryos transfer successful?

  • Frozen embryos transfer occurs when an embryo is thawed and implanted into a women’s uterus, the process is often successful

ICSI Vs IVF

ICSI Vs IVF

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injecton (ICSI) 

Although Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)  was introduced as an add on procedure to In vitro fertilization (IVF)  for couples with severe male factors , now a days it is routinely used in most of the IVF centers.  ICSI  involves injection of single sperm into a mature egg.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injecton (ICSI)

ICSI has a clear cut edge in male factor infertility like low sperm count , poor sperm motility , abnormal sperm morphology , nil sperm count due to blockage etc. ICSI is also the best option when fertilization rates in previous cycles have been low.

 In these cases the risk of fertilization failure after conventional IVF are high as the poor quality sperm may fail to penetrate the egg and result in failure. However, ICSI is Labour intensive and more expensive than Conventional IVF.

Oocyte

Conventional IVF  involves standard  insemination of eggs collected by egg retrieval and husband semen sample .

IVF is more successful in young couples with good ovarian reserve and normal semen parameters .Your chances of having a healthy baby using IVF depend on many factors, such as your age and the cause of infertility.

The current available studies that compare ICSI and IVF in couples with no male factor problems show neither method was superior to the other in achieving live birth, complications like multiple pregnancies etc.

The choice between both the fertility treatments would mostly rely on diagnosis and recommendation of your fertility specialist while its always great to have basic understanding of the process benefit & difference.
