Embryo testing (PGD,PGS)

Preimplantation genetic testing is a technique which involves checking the genes or chromosomes of the embryos , created through IVF or ICSI, before they are transferred to the uterus. This technique helps to ensure that only healthy embryos are put in the uterus during treatment and provides an alternative to current postconception diagnostic procedures (ie.amniocentesis...

Ovarian Tissue Freezing

If you are facing a treatment for cancer that may affect your future fertility and you are not able to freeze your eggs or embryos then ovarian freezing may be an option. The technique involves taking a whole ovary or small pieces of ovarian tissue which is then frozen and stored. The ovary or tissue...

Testicular Tissue Freezing

Testicular tissue freezing is an experimental technique but may be an option for young (as young as 13 years old) boys wishing to preserve their fertility before undergoing cancer treatment. A small piece of tissue is taken from a testicle then frozen and stored. There have been no births reported following testicular tissue freezing. In...

Oocyte Freezing

The effect of cryopreservation, freezing of a woman’s ova , on the development and improvement of assisted reproduction methods is becoming increasingly important. What is egg freezing Egg freezing or cryopreservation is an assisted reproduction technique that allows women to freeze and store their eggs so they can choose the time they become mothers. What are the reasons...

Laser Assisted ZONA Thinning (LAZT)

Thinning a portion of the outer embryo shell by a laser for facilitating embryo’s hatching process. On the 5th or 6th day of its development, the embryo leaves its protective outer layer (zona pellucida), which among other things has protected it till now from extracorporeal manipulation. This process of breaking out or “hatching” is necessary for...

Embryo Freezing

In many IVF or ICSI cycles people have a number of unused embryos. It is a good idea to freeze them for use in later treatment cycles without using drugs for ovarian simulation. The chances of getting pregnant with a thawed frozen embryo are not affected by the length of time the embryo has been...

Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)

Assisted hatching is a technology which helps embryos to attach to the womb of the woman. Pregnancy cannot occur unless the human embryo hatches. The unfertilised egg is surrounded by a shell called zona pellucida. The zona pellucida ensures that only one sperm cell enters and thus fertilises the egg. After fertilisation of the egg,...

Blastocyst Biopsy

Blastocyst biopsy is a technique that is performed by our embryologists before the artificial fertilization process in order to remove one or more cells from the embryos. These cells go through genetic / molecular analyzes to diagnose their genetic material. This technique is used before embryo transfer to select healthy embryos that do not have...
