Is Art Part Of Ivf
In vitro fertilization is an assisted reproductive technology. Ivf is a procedure used to treat fertility problems and assist with the conception of a child. During ivf mature eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. A few days later, the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs are implanted into the uterus. One cycle of in vitro fertilization ...Read more
Union of sperm/egg: Fertilization is union of the sperm and egg. At fertilization, many sperm bind to the covering of the egg, the zone pellucida. At the zona, sperm become hyperactive, whipping tails back and forth, and literally drill into the egg. Once one sperm enters the egg, the egg immediately closes access to any other sperm. Egg and sperm dna combine, and cell division begins. ...Read more
Semen Analysis info: The semen analysis is performed on a fresh specimen within 2 hours of collection. Before testing, a period of 2-4 days of abstinence from ejaculation is recommended. The specimen is best collected by masturbation into a sterile container. This is most conveniently performed in the facility provided at the laboratory however collection at home is acceptable if it can be brought in within 1 hr. ...Read more
What is the role of assisted reproductive techniques such as in vitro fertilization (ivf) and gamete intra fallopian transfer (gift) in the treatment of infertility of patients with endometriosis?
Bypass the tube: Although it is not completely understood why endometriosis causes infertility, it is commonly accepted that the endometriosis may result in pelvic adhesion, and affect the tubal function. Because ivf bypass the tube, so it will help these patients. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Extremely variable: The length of an intron is extremely variable. Even within the same gene, the introns of vastly different lengths can exist. Depending on the statistical method used, the average intron size is somewhere between 3500 base pairs and 5000 base pairs. ...Read more
Microscopic eval: After liquifaction of the sperm sample an hour or so after ejaculation, a drop is placed in a small measured volume chamber, and sperm count and motility are measured under the microscope. Multiplying these values by the sperm volume gives a total motile sperm count, the best single measure of sperm quality. Many other measures exist. Automated systems are available for semen analysis. ...Read more
What are the factors positively influencing a successful implant of the embryo in an icsi IVF procedure?
Several: Age of female most important, ovarian reserve tests (fsh, amh, afc), stimulation factors, excess embryos for freezing, number and quality of embryos, day of transfer, chromosome screening, technique of transfer, and ejaculated vs testicular sperm. Also, icsi overused, so avoid it if possible - about 2-4% higher delivery without icsi. Icsi is just the technique to inseminate the egg. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the rate of IVF success with amh of 0.28ng/ml at the age of 45 suffered from edometriosis?
Yes, but...: It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature. Always decide if there is truly an overwhelmingly convincing reason to interfere with nature, before trying to do it. If there is no known genetic defect in the family genes that would create a mutation in either boys or girls, then we let nature decide whether the next baby will be a boy or girl. If no mutations, both boy and girl babies are fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Testicle, Vas, SV: The male reproductive system includes the testicles, which empty into the epidydimus, into the vas deferens, which joins with the seminal vesicles to form the ampulla which empties into the prostate on each side. The majority of the seminal fluid is from the prostate and seminal vesicles, only a fraction is composed of spermatozoa. ...Read more

It depends: It depends on multiple factors. These include, and aren't necessarily limited to: having normal (open, functioning) fallopian tubes; timing the insemination to the time of ovulation; the skill of the fertility specialist doing the iui; the quantity and quality of the sperm being used for iui; the woman's age!; and the dna structure and functioning of the sperm (fragmentation and decondensation). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the overall length of my foot is 23 cm, the length of my second toe is 5 cm. Is there an anatomical standard for this comparison?
Not much: Kruger criteria are guidelines used to judge the shape of ejaculated sperm. It has fallen out of favor recently because it does not reliably predict sperm quality. Egg quality can be assessed when eggs are removed from a woman during ivf and examined in a dish, but criteria similar to krugers for sperm are not currently avalaible. ...Read more
Not much: It has not been studied and has no proven benefit. It was developed mostly to improve posture, balance and alleviate pain.
