In Vitro Fertilization
Procedure by which oocytes (female cells) and sperm (male cells) are brought into contact to form a new cell known as an embryo. In FERTICLINIC’s laboratory, a spermatozoon is injected into the oocyte cell by means of a microscope; the cells are cultured for 5 days in conditions similar to those of the mother and then placed in the woman’s uterus.
This treatment offers a good chance of conceiving in couples with infertility due to:
- Tubal Diseases. (Tubal obstruction, history of sterilization and inflammation of the tubes).
- Severe Male Factor: Male patients with low sperm count or low sperm motility.
- Ovarian Failure: Patients who have limited ovarian capacity or low ovarian reserve.
These are the type of treatments where the natural ability to conceive is enhanced by exposing or bringing the sperm closer to the fallopian tube at the moment when the patients are ovulating. To increase the chances of success of the procedure, for a certain period of time patients will receive stipulated doses of hormones that will generate the recruitment of several follicles that will ovulate at a certain time.
The male sample is processed in FERTICLINIC’s laboratory and purified to place the best spermatozoa inside the patient’s uterus, so that they can be introduced into the fallopian tubes until they meet the oocyte.
It is the ideal treatment for:
- Infertility of unknown cause.
- Ovulatory problems (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).
- Mild male factor.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
Reproductive medicine allows us to prevent diseases in the offspring.
Through genetic study of small embryonic biopsies, obtained by mircomanipulation of embryos during the Invitro treatment, and before placing them in the uterus, we can offer in FERTICLINIC more accurate information about the treatment and embryos.
This studio is ideal for:
- Treat for treatment failure.
- Implantation failure.
- Sex Selection.
- Selection of embryos without hereditary genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, thalassemias and others present in the parents.
Controlling the exact moment of conception and being able to empower herself in her reproduction is of vital importance for today’s woman. For this reason, FERTICLINIC offers both single women and couples preservation treatments:
- Oocyte Freezing.
- Embryo Freezing.
There are other cases where there is a need for both men and women to look for preservation alternatives for patients who are going to undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments. For this purpose, FERTICLINIC offers the services of :
- Oocyte Freezing.
- Ovarian Cortex Preservation.
- Semen freezing.
Reproductive Laboratories and Spermogram
There are a series of reproductive studies for both men and women that help us find the reason for the difficulty in conceiving, in FERTICLINIC you will find a comprehensive assessment of them:
- Spermogram: functional study of male reproductive capacity by categorizing the quantity, movement and shape of spermatozoa.
- Hormonal Test: Blood tests that seek to evaluate the reproductive capacity of the ovary such as the number of oocytes potentially available as well as the antimullerian hormone.
- Imaging Studies: Through Gynecologic ultrasound we can evaluate diseases of the uterus and ovaries as well as their function as is the case of the count of the antral follicles.
Many patients require specialized surgical interventions before or during their reproductive treatment in order to conceive. FERTICLINIC’s medical staff has specialized training in highly complex gynecological surgery by minimally invasive techniques such as Laparoscopic & Hysteroscopic and Robotic as well as conventional open surgery.
The main objective is to preserve the different parts and reproductive organs of the woman.
- Uterine surgeries: Myomas or uterine fibroids by open or laparoscopic technique.
- Surgery of polyps, endometrial synechiae by hysteroscopy.
- Metroplasties and surgeries for defects in the development of the uterus.
- Ovarian Surgeries: Ovarian Cysts
- Ovarian Endometrioma
- Ovarian Cortex Preservation
- Oviduct or Tubal Surgery.
- Laparoscopic surgeries by hydrosalping
