Children are on everyone’s wish list, but it’s not easy for everyone. In the last few years, IVF has helped millions of couples achieve their dream of having a family. Experts are aiming to incorporate the latest technological advancements in IVF and other reproductive procedures because of their recent high success rate. Couples can employ a variety of assisted reproductive technology therapies to address their infertility, and this has led to the development of several innovative fertility treatments that our doctors can use.
Over the past ten years, there have been several significant advancements made in the field of assisted reproductive technology (ART). Today, IVF is a critical and widely utilized therapeutic option in the process of becoming a parent. The process is now simpler to provide because of the latest IVF technologies, which also make it easier for more individuals to reproduce. Researchers have been developing novel reproductive technologies while also enhancing and upgrading the existing widely used IVF method. As a result of this, our doctors are able to help couples with a wide range of the latest IVF technologies.
What is an IVF treatment?
Gynecologists frequently use in vitro fertilization (IVF) to treat couples who are having problems conceiving naturally. In this procedure, a man’s sperm fertilizes a woman’s egg in a test tube or anywhere else external to the body to produce an embryo.
What advantages does IVF treatment have?
- IVF Increases Your Chances of Successful Fertility
- Reduce the chance of miscarriage
- Improves the likelihood of a Healthy Baby
- Compared to other assisted reproductive technologies, such as IUI, IVF is typically more successful.
What are the latest IVF technologies?
Laser-assisted hatching is the latest IVF technique, and is helpful in some circumstances. It comprises creating a hole in the hard outer shell of the embryo to make it simpler for an in-vitro embryo to implant. In most IVF procedures, the embryo successfully implants in the womb.
Specific patient populations, such as those with low embryo quality or advanced maternal age, have proven that this technique increases the success rate of IVF.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in IVF
AI can enhance clinical efficacy and efficiency, which will benefit the ART therapy strategy. The AI predictor’s database has at least 100,000 cases, whereas an embryologist with a particular level of skill has limited information. It can confidently and successfully forecast the future.
Additionally, the AI models can now assess tiny details that are usually difficult for even the most skilled embryologists to identify. According to studies, AI can increase the success rate of IVF by assisting physicians in choosing the finest embryos for transfer and lowering the chance of miscarriage.
A method of cryopreservation called Vitrification
By adding cryoprotective substances such as salts, sugars, glycerol, FBS, or glycols, vitrification is the fast freezing of eggs, sperm, or embryos. This cryopreservation method reduces DNA damage brought on by ice crystal formation.
In the past, embryos and eggs were frozen slowly, which led to the creation of ice crystals during the freezing process, destroying the DNA of the embryos and eggs. In order to prevent this, the latest IVF technology—the vitrification procedure with a brand-new cryoprotectant that shields the DNA—was created. This approach often makes use of dry ice and liquid nitrogen.
Preimplantation Genetic Screening
Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which analyze embryos for genetic flaws before transferring them to the uterus for implantation, are another development in IVF.
This may increase the likelihood of a healthy pregnancy and lower the danger of miscarriage. Additionally, PGS and PGD are used to screen for genetic diseases, enabling individuals who are carriers of particular diseases to have healthy children.
Stem cell therapy
Another development in IVF treatment is stem cell therapy. Typically, bone marrow or adipose tissue is used to obtain stem cells for cell therapy. Your doctor will collect healthy stem cells and inject them into your body to replace damaged stem cells. Because of their exceptional ability to self-regrow, differentiate into any form of cell, and adhere to the injured part of the body that requires healing and reconstruction, these cells are known as totipotent stem cells.
The quality of eggs may be improved by stem cells, which might result in more successful reproductive treatments by repairing damaged tissue in the ovaries. One of the most extensively studied issues in a variety of medical and fertility sectors is stem cell therapy.
IVF with oocyte Activation
Artificial Oocyte Activation (AOA), which utilizes calcium ionophore to assist activate the egg and improve fertilization, is a highly efficient technique to stop complete fertilization failure during In Vitro Fertilization-Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET) cycles. This method has been demonstrated to lower the number of multiple pregnancies and increase the success rate of IVF.
Nanobots and Robotic Technologies
Robotics and nanotechnology breakthroughs have made intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) more automated, allowing accurate monitoring of oocyte penetration by choosing the most appropriate sperm or embryo for a certain situation. Using nanotechnology, the best sperm cell is chosen and sent to the egg, where it is implanted to create a healthy embryo.
Sperm Chromatin Structure Assay (SCSA)
Even if an individual has a healthy sperm count, adequate sperm motility, and normal sperm morphology, there may still be microscopic sperm chromosomal breakage that might affect fertility. SCSA can distinguish healthy sperm from those whose DNA has been fragmented using specialized stains and extremely sophisticated equipment.
The use of IVF has increased as a result of changing cultural norms and demographic trends. The search for appropriate treatment choices for every infertile couple has swiftly and considerably advanced as a result of the latest technologies in IVF. To lessen stress and social concerns, the cost and complexity of treatment have been lowered. Most risks associated with multiple pregnancies and the use of stimulated cycles have been eliminated. We at 9M Fertility use the latest technologies in IVF. We encourage you to contact a fertility specialist at 9M Fertility if you are thinking about undergoing fertility treatment in order to take the first step towards realizing your goal of becoming a parent.
