Fresh VS Frozen Embryo Transfers: An Explanation through Comparisons

Fresh VS Frozen Embryo Transfers: An Explanation through Comparisons

However, over the past years, significant advancements in:

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

  • Age of couple

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

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.

Preparing for Donor Eggs IVF Cycle – Psychological Issues

Preparing for Donor Eggs IVF Cycle – Psychological Issues

In about 50% of our patients, being taken for IVF, the oocyte quality or quantity is the major concern. It’s very easy for us to show you the path of egg donation as it is a routine for us. But we know it is not that simple for you. Though it carries a very high success rate, but psychological implications on the recipient are very high.

The major indications for IVF with donor oocytes in REVIVA are –

  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Menopause
  • Decreased ovarian reserve
  • Endometriosis
  • Recurrent self cycle failures with no proven endometrial or male factor.
  • Genetic causes.

It takes time for the couple to accept the option of Donor eggs, but usually the desire of having a family overcomes this hesitation.

The most important concern of the couple is the quality of genes transmitted to the child. Though the anonymous egg donor is being matched to the recipient as far as possible, the concern always remains in majority of recipient; they are satisfied with their gestational contribution which creates a strong bond.

Another way of dealing with it is to keep the information of type of cycle between the couple only, it will serve you from interrogation eyes and any future problems will be avoided.

On positive note egg donation is associated with many benefit. The most important since eggs are derived from a young woman, they are more likely to produce chromosomally normal embryos and so risk of abortions and birth defects is less.

So, though egg donation is not the first choice of anyone, but it is treatment with very high success rate where it is indicated.

Why a trend from fresh to frozen embryo transfer?

Why a trend from fresh to frozen embryo transfer?

Whenever a sudden shift is made from fresh embryo transfer to frozen embryo transfer the couple usually have many queries in mind. So, let’s evaluate both and see pros and cons.

Fresh embryos transfer is undergoing ovarian hyper stimulation making of embryos and transferring resultant embryos to uterine cavity in same cycle. In frozen embryo transfer first two steps of controlled ovarian hyper stimulation and process of IVF/ICSI are same but the resultant embryos are frozen using vitrification techniques and not transferred in same cycle. They are thawed and then kept uterine cavity after preparing the uterine cavity.

In patients who are normal or hyper responders the frozen embryo transfers are known to have better results than the fresh embryo transfer . The reason can be that due to ovarian hyper stimulation and high levels of estrogen may have negative impacts on the endometrial receptivity. In some cycles another hormone called progesterone may also be raised, which again decreases embryo implantation rate. Whereas in frozen embryo transfer the body and uterus have already recovered from the impact of hormonal disturbance and hence more receptive.

Because of their reason in patient with PCOS the frozen embryo transfer is associated with higher live birth rate. It also reduces complications like ovarian hypertimulation in these patients.

Another reason where we make a sudden shift from fresh to frozen embryo transfer are when the ovarian stimulation part is good but the endometrial thickness fails to reach an optimal level.

So because of the above reasons we are moving towards more frozen transfer than fresh transfers in self cycle.

Can Adenomyosis affect my fertility

Can Adenomyosis affect my fertility

Adenomyosis is a condition in which the cells of endometrium (the uterine lining) are present inside the muscular wall of uterus. There is also associated hypertrophy uterine muscles.

Adenomyosis can affect fertility in two ways. Firstly it effects the uterine contractions which helps sperms to reach the tubes. Secondly it also increases the number of toxic cells in the uterine lining which may effect the implantation of embryos.

Adenomyosis may also be associated with endometriosis, a condition in which the uterine lining cells are present in the ovaries or other sites in pelvic. This may further effect the oocyte quality and number, further contributing to difficulty in conception.
