Initially, in many cases, lifestyle changes are advised to rectify some disorders. In other cases, treatments could be the answer, especially where there is hormonal imbalance. But for more extreme cases procedures are the only answer. These may or may not be related to IVF and some may be more complex than others.
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
This is usually done whence the sperm count is very low. Here unlike IVF the sperm is collected using a syringe and the sperm so obtained are infused with the egg in the test tube and the fertilized egg is transferred back. This is also known as testicular sperm injection since the sperm is directly extracted from the testicle on occasions. The procedural success is dependent upon the expert fertility doctor and an embryologist.
Whence women suffer from PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome the ovary is subjected to ovarian drilling. The procedure is effective in inducing ovulation and correcting hormonal imbalance.
Some diagnosis techniques are essential to treat infertility.
This is done by inserting a minuscule telescope into the abdomen to diagnose infertility cause. The procedure calls for an overnight stay at the clinic since it is classified as a major operation.
Associated diagnostics are usually, blood tests, prenatal diagnosis, and chromosomal analysis.
