If a woman is either unable to conceive or carry her pregnancy to full term, she needs an infertility expert doctor to realize her dream of having a child. If you are having an infertility issue, Nurture clinic is the place, where you will get a solution to your problem. Nurture Clinic, headed by DR. Archana Dhawan Bajaj offersalmost every type of specialized treatment for Infertility. Some of our treatment specialties are
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
In this process specially treated sperms are directly placed in uterus at the time of ovulation. Sometimes doctors induce ovulation if ovulation process is not regular. This works best if there is a borderline problem of low sperm count or sperm motility in men or poor sperm migration in the female genital tract. In cases of hormonal defects in female, it is a good solution too.
In-Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET)
For this process eggs and sperms are collected from the couple. The eggs are cultured in laboratory and later fertilized with the husband's sperm. The best two to three embryos are placed back into the mother’s uterus. With the implantation of embryo pregnancy gets established. It works best for couples having problems such as blocked tubes, low sperm count, endometriosis or unexplained infertility.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm injection (ICSI)
In this process a single sperm is injected into each egg, which is worthwhile fertilization. In this process the wife's oocytes are collected and a single sperm collected from husband’s semen sample is injected into it. This method helps those couple, where the male partner suffers from some sperm problem.
Women who are going through menopause or have a problem of premature ovarian failure but want a baby can opt for Oocyst donation. In this process oocyst are collected from the donor and fertilized in the lab with husband’s sperm and the embryo is placed into wife’s womb after preparing it for pregnancy with estrogen / progesterone priming.
Therapeutic Insemination with Donor Sperm (TID)
Couples where male is suffering from sperm problems such as low sperm count or low mobility or morphological problem with sperm can opt for sperm donation. Patients with primary testicular failure can realize their dream of having a baby with help of this process. Donor sperms are collected from a donor or from a semen bank and the woman is fertilized with other fertility methods such as IUI or ICSI.
Couple having infertility problems with both the partners and even then wanting a baby can opt for embryo donation. A woman can fulfill her biological desire to be a mother with this method. It is also useful in patients with repeated miscarriages or repeated IVF failures.
Women who suffer from uterine damage or owing to other problems there uterus is not fit for having a baby can go for surrogacy. In this method oocyst from the mother are fertilized with her husband’s sperm in the lab. Later embryos are transferred into other healthy woman’s womb, which carries the baby to full term and deliver it. Hiring a surrogate mother can fulfill hopes of many childless couples who cannot have babies with other methods.
LAH (Laser Assisted Hatching)
Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH) is an Advanced Reproductive Technique, which is used along with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). A laser system is used to create a small opening in the ZonaPellucida(the outer membrane of the fertilized egg) in our laboratory. This is crucially important for implantation of embryo in the uterus.
Cryopreservation is a process of Embryo freezing. In an IVF cycle only two to three embryos are transferred into the uterus. Excess embryos are frozen to be used in subsequent Cycles.
PGD (Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis)
Couples who have some genetic abnormality or carry some genetic condition can cease passing them to their offspring with help of PGD. An embryo is developed with assisted reproductive technology (ART) and then is tested for any genetic abnormality. Up to two unaffected embryos are implanted into the mother’s womb.
