If you are struggling with infertility, you might have undergone a series of evaluations and treatments. While standard IVF protocols are the go-to technique, sometimes you need a highly customized strategy so you can conceive. Mountain View aggressive IVF protocols will closely scrutinize your condition and adjust your treatment plan for better results.
The process examines your blood components, reproductive organs, number and quality of your eggs and ensures that you receive the right combination of medications.
What do individualized IVF protocols involve?
Before your doctor puts you on an aggressive IVF protocol, they must evaluate your response to standard IVF treatments. Afterward, they will perform the following types of diagnostic procedures:
If you have undergone a series of standard IVF treatments without success, your specialist must perform a uterine evaluation. They will check for abnormalities in your uterus and fallopian tubes, like fibroids and adhesions. The diagnostic testing aims to check whether your uterus can carry a pregnancy to term. If not, they check for the reasons and offer a possible solution.
Preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy
Preimplantation genetic testing checks for gene disorders like sickle cell disease and cystic fibrosis. It decreases the rate of miscarriages while increasing the successful transfer and implantation rates of embryos.
Reproductive immunology testing
Repeated failure of IVF can stem from issues with your immune system. Sometimes, your immune system might reject and attack your pregnancy, resulting in a miscarriage. Reproductive immunology testing aims to identify the immunologic factors contributing to pregnancy loss.
Endometrial receptivity assay
Endometrial receptivity assay is a testing ideal before embryo implantation. The test checks whether your uterus is ready for embryo implantation. Before implantation, your uterus must have a specific exposure to progesterone to facilitate successful embryo implantation. If not done correctly, you might end up with a miscarriage.
Ovarian reserve testing
Blood tests and a vaginal ultrasound can determine your egg quantity. The combination of blood tests will check for follicle stimulation hormone (FSH) and estradiol hormone levels, which can be drawn at the beginning of your menstrual cycle. The anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) can be drawn anytime during your period.
When do you need individualized IVF protocols?
You might need individualized IVF protocols if standard IVF protocols are not yielding results. Your doctor can recommend the treatment when you have undergone a course of IVF, but all efforts have failed. Standard IVF protocols might fail due to a low ovarian reserve, meaning you have a low number of eggs.
What if IVF doesn’t work?
Sometimes you can diligently follow all the IVF protocols but not get your desired results. In such a case, you can choose other fertility options like surrogacy, donor eggs, and donor embryos.
