In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one part of specialised infertility treatment. In the last 30 years it has already helped millions of people who had problems with fertility.
The earliest generation of IVF was simply putting an egg and sperms together in a laboratory environment for fertilization and then transferring to the patient. However, the success rate was limited due to its poor understanding of the importance of the stimulation on egg quality, preparation of the sperm and appropriate fertilization techniques.
Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is the advanced technology which allows selection and the direct injection of a sperm into the egg and so improving the success of fertilization considerably — especially cases with sperm disorders.
LaVida is adopting the latest IVF technologies which include Preimplantation Genetic Testing (previously called PGD/PGS) with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). These technologies enhance implantation rates, reduce spontaneous abortions to increase ongoing pregnancy and final birth rates, just as important, they provide best opportunity in minimizing the risk of conceiving babies with genetic disorders.
