Dr Gautam Allahbadia, an IVF specialist explains how Ultrasound Guided Embryo Transfers is leading to increased chances of a successful pregnancy.
Today’s scenario is such that planning a family has become stressful rather than an exciting experience for couples. When the process of clinical pregnancy took its initial steps, the underlying objective was to bestow childless couples with the happiness of having their own babies.
Further the infertility problems are an unpleasant experience for modern-age couples. Such individuals are commonly termed as ‘incomplete’, and ‘incompetent’ if they are infertile. However, with advances in medical reproductive sciences, procreation for couples has not only been made possible but has also unraveled controlled ways to encourage fertilization.
In-Vitro Fertilization that is fertilization outside the body along with embryo transfer and implantation is breaking the constraints of natural birthing and proving to be useful for couples facing infertility.\
Assisted Reproduction Techniques (ART) have not only been able to restore couple’s lost hope, but help them experience the joy of being parents to ‘healthy’ babies through genetic profiling. The implantation and success rates have been clinically proven to increase by use of Ultrasound-Guided Embryo Transfer using ultrasonic transfer catheters, and is spreading happiness among couples worldwide.
Such techniques try replicating natural reproduction, with an objective to locate the most optimal target for successful embryo placement. “The usual embryo transfer relies mainly on the judgement and the ‘clinical feel’ of the medical experts as to whether the catheter is in the correct position. But with ultrasound guided transfers, the placement of the catheter in the uterus cavity is guided technologically, making transfers easier with less catheter distortion,” explains Dr Gautam Allahbadia, a noted world authority on Ultrasound Guided Embryo Transfer and the head of Millennium Medical Center (MMC IVF), Dubai.
The process has proven to improve success rate of pregnancies, along with avoiding difficult transfers, mitigating contamination with blood, and further reducing any related afflictions.
