Donor sperm IVF is the process in which the eggs are retrieved and fertilized using donor sperm. The entire process is same as traditional IVF only the sperms change during IVF.
Which couple can take advantage of donor sperm IVF ?
Couple who are facing the following problems can take advantage of donor sperm IVF
What is the Success rate of Donor Sperm IVF ?
The success rate of Donor sperm IVF is as high as 90% if all the factors are evaluated properly and the endometrium is triple
How is a donor Sperm chosen ?
At the time of the donation, known donors are screened and tested in our clinic for numerous infectious and genetic diseases, including HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. For the convenience of the patient and the donor, we can screen the donor and collect the sample ahead of time, followed by cryopreservation.
Patient will be provided with different donor profiles and they can choose the one that they want and inform the clinic.
What is the cost for Donor Sperm ?
Donor sperm will cost anywhere between 1000 to 1500 Rs.
What is the process of donor sperm IVF ?
Steps involved in Donor Sperm IVF
1.: Ovarian Stimulation: The female partner id given follicle stimulating hormone from day 2 to day 12 of her cycle(Cycle day 1 is the 1st day of periods), the size of the follicle is monitored by ultrasound. Once the follicles grow more than 20mm, an LH trigger on GnRh agonist is given for these follicles to mature.
2. Oocyte Retrieval: The process of retrieving the oocyte from the grown follicle is known as oocyte pick up. This is a simple, scarless, ultrasound guided procedure. The ovum pick up needle gently aspirates the follicle from the ovaries under ultrasound guidance. This is also known as oocyte aspiration. This process takes about 30 minutes and is done under anesthesia. This comes under day care procedure, so the patients can go home in 4 to 5 hours. Oocytes are carefully picked from the follicle and kept in a growth medium.
3. Selected donor sperm preparation: Semen sample consist of sperm cells citric acid, amino acid, fructose, enzymes and all the other enzymes coming from the reproductive organs. While IVF we want only sperms with the highest motility to fertilize the eggs, hence the sample is wash with media to separate high motility sperms these are then kept in the incubator at 37 degrees for capacitation.
4. In Vitro Fertilization: The prepared semen sample and the oocytes are added in the petri dish with growth medium and kept to fertilize in the incubator.
5. Embryo Transfer: This is the final step of IVF in which the embryos from the incubator are transferred into the mother’s uterus under ultrasound guidance.
