Embryo Transfer-Things To Know About It

by Mangal Barot Digital Marketing Experts

A process that is considered as the simplest and final step of the IVF the process is known as embryo transfer. At the time of in-vitro fertilization, fertility medications are applied to stimulate the ovaries into releasing healthy eggs. These eggs get removed from a woman's ovaries and proceed towards fertilization in the lab. Once the eggs which have been fertilized get multiplied, the embryos are transferred to the uterus of a woman. Many organizations provide different types of embryo transfer like fresh embryo transfer, frozen embryo transfer, blastocyst embryo transfer and assisted hatching.

Basically, only one fertilized embryo is transferred to the uterus as it contains many advantages and higher success rates, while some doctors do believe that two fertilized embryos have an increased chance of a successful pregnancy. Give below are some details regarding both kinds of embryo transfer by which you will gain some healthy knowledge.

Single Embryo Transfer

There is a procedure named as single-embryo transfer (SET) where a single embryo, selected from a larger number of available embryos gets placed in the fallopian tube or uterus. The embryo chosen for a single-embryo transfer may be from a previous IVF cycle, like cryopreserved embryos (frozen) or from the present fresh IVF cycle that produced more than one embryo. The rest embryos may be set aside for cryopreservation or future use. This process helps families in achieving success while preventing some risks that are known to be linked with giving birth to twins or at the time when there are chances of three or more children born at the same time.

The process of single embryo transfer greatly reduces multiple gestations that lower the risk of various complications like miscarriage, premature delivery, death of the baby, low birth weight, long term disabilities in the baby like cerebral palsy, vision or hearing loss, intellectual disability. It also lowers the chances of other complications that are linked with early delivery like problems with child's brain, lungs, nervous system or intestinal tract. There are fewer chances of high blood pressure, increased nausea and vomiting, high blood sugar, problems with delivery and bleeding, and other gastrointestinal problems.

Single Embryo Transfer Success Rate

Studies have shown that using a single embryo during IVF contains much higher chances of a healthy pregnancy and birth. The study has shown that there is twice the likelihood of success if a single embryo is implemented, after controlling for other factors which influence IVF. Performing the transfer with one embryo with the help of IVF greatly increases the chances of a healthy baby.

Multiple Embryo Transfer

In many cases, it has been obtained more than one good embryo to consider for transfer back to the female parent's uterus or a gestational carrier. The availability of multiple good embryos creates the chances to grade them and then choose the best among them for transfer. It also brings an ordinary dilemma about how many embryos to transfer. Some patients prefer multiple embryo transfer to brighten their chances of at least one embryo resulting in a live birth. If a woman has passed the age of 38 or so, she can advance for multiple embryo transfer.

Multiple Embryo Transfer Success Rate

Many couples in this world are long frustrated with their struggles regarding fertility. Some of them contain thought in their mind to have twins. The birth of healthy twins is a massive contrast against years of failure to obtain birth or pregnancy. But the actual thing is that twins do not take a healthy birth always. Pregnancy contains risks, but many risks are greatly increased with a twin birth. Research has mentioned that singleton deliveries are associated with a 14% risk of prematurity, 9% of low birth and 2% of very low birth. Regarding twin births, the risk increases with 65%, 57%, and 9% respectively. There are higher chances of triplet birth as the risk goes to 97%, 96%, and 34%.

Embryo Transfer Cost

The cost of embryo transfer is much less as compared to a full IVF cycle. The cost of treatment is significant as the laboratory work and medical procedures are still needed. Medication is considered to be the least expensive part of a frozen embryo transfer cycle. It is also based upon the terms and conditions of the medical organization where you are performing the embryo transfer.

Currently, the reason such couples create embryos through standard IVF is so the embryos can be tested in the lab, and only those found to be healthy need be implanted,

"For couples that have genetic abnormalities and are at risk of transmitting them by selecting the embryos that are not affected, they can have a normal baby,"

"We have now a method that can produce embryos that are of good quality or better than in vitro fertilization," says Santiago Munne, a reproductive geneticist who led the study

"This is the first time that human embryos conceived naturally have been analyzed genetically to see if they are normal or not," Munne says.

"The advantage is that these embryos are conceived naturally — so you don't need in vitro fertilization to do the genetic testing of the embryos. In theory, it should be much cheaper."
