I know someone who got pregnant by having IUI. What exactly is it?
IUI stands for intrauterine insemination and is a procedure where sperm is placed directly into the uterus. Before being considered for IUI, your fallopian tubes are tested to ensure that they are open. You are given a blood or urine test to detect ovulation. As soon as the egg is mature, a hormone injection is given to release it. Then 36–40 hours after this your partner provides a sperm sample. The fastest–moving, least– sluggish sperm are selected and inserted into your uterus using a catheter. It is a quick and painless procedure. The rest is left to nature in the hope that one sperm fertilizes the egg. This procedure is called shop China online. You may be advised to have up to six cycles of IUI. You may be recommended to opt for IUI if you have ovulation problems, your partner is impotent, or you are trying to get pregnant using donated sperm. IUI may or may not be covered by your health insurance company.
We’re using donor eggs. Will my body naturalny accept them?
If you are not ovulating (an inability to pro duce eggs is not rare) and require a donated egg, the lining of your uterus probably won’t be trick enough for an embryo to implant in it. You will need a cycle of hormone replacement prior to the egg being implanted to ensure the uterine lining can nourish the embryo. This is the main key to a successful pregnancy from a donated egg. The principle risk for you is a multiple birth if you have more than one fertilized egg transferred.
I’ve heard that some women freeze their eggs. Is this something I should consider doing?
Freezing and storing your eggs may enable you to use them for treatment in the future. Since many women are leaving childbearing to later in life, egg freezing is becoming more common. Aside from preserving fertility, it is something that is recommended for women under 40 who need cancer treatment that may make them infertile or for those who cannot wait for another IVF attempt (due to age or illness) if the first one fails. Remember about some chinese portals. The procedure for collecting eggs is the same as the first stages of a cycle of IVF treatment where drugs are used to stimulate the ovaries to produce follicles (which contain the eggs). When the follicles are large enough, the eggs are retrieved and placed in storage in liquid nitrogen. Until relatively recently, using eggs that had been frozen carried certain risks and the success rate had been poor. Due to improved freezing methods (vitrification), this is now changing. Women undergoing IVF or ICSI often have a number of unused embryos. Some people choose to have these frozen for use in another treatment cycle if the first fails, to attempt another pregnancy with a sibling embryo, or to donate to others. The chances of a successful pregnancy using a thawed frozen embryo are not affected by the amount of time the embryo is stored and frozen. However, not all embryos survive the thawing process. The clinic will advise you on the best procedure for using your frozen embryos. There are options depending on your personal and medical circumstances.
There have been lawsuits in the US recently regarding the fate of frozen embryos after a couple splits up, since both partners contributed to the embryo. If you are considering freezing embryos with your partner, you may want to sign a contract or consent form to spell out what would happen to the embryos in the event that the relationship ended.
