Fertility Concerns

Fertility concerns have become a significant chunk of our population's issues. As per WHO data, one in six couples is dealing with infertility. This is because the female eggs and the male sperm can be sorted to find the best quality ones and fertilized with micromanipulation to overcome fertilization obstacles.

So Here Is How It Works

Our womb layers are known to be receptive to an incoming pregnancy only 2-3 days a month! These patients shouldn't have a fresh transfer as the developed endometrium may not be sensory to the endometrium.


Embryos grow from one cell egg into two cells, four cells, eight cells, and 16 cells (morula), and eventually, by day 5/6, it becomes a blastocyst. This is why embryos must be frozen or transferred permanently at the blastocyst stage. Otherwise, we would transfer or freeze embryos that cannot be implanted.  Also Read - 10 Herbs Known For Its Healing Effects

Frozen Embryos

One is where medication is given to develop the endometrium lining, and the second is where we track the ovulation time for the woman and transfer the embryo per the body’s rhythm. Most of all, the patient is NOT on estrogen or Progesterone tablets, which becomes a medication-free or “Purely Natural “cycle.

Multiple Pregnancy

The most common side effect or associated IVF issue is “Multiple Pregnancy.” As a usual practice, doctors transfer 2-3 embryos each time. If all these implants are, we look at twins or triplets, which becomes a high-risk pregnancy. Multiple pregnancies are associated with higher chances of rising blood pressure and blood sugar during pregnancy.  Also Read - Health Care Tips: Benefits Of Including White Pumpkin In Your Diet
