Female fertility related issues are indeed on the increase. One out of every five women is in fact diagnosed by fertility related issues. Women aged around 30 to 40 years are certainly more vulnerable to infertility as compared to their younger counterpart, though younger women are not entirely safe.
The desire of becoming a mother does indeed bring most women looking out for ART (Artificial Reproductive Technology). Most of them do opt for IVF to have babies. But IVF does not guarantee successful conception. As the woman ages, the quality of her eggs or oocytes does start deteriorating. The eggs start to age as well as they result in repetitive failures in conception, naturally or through IVF.
It has been observed that eggs can now be energized by adding a little battery to it. This process does involve sucking out the ‘mitochondria power packs ‘or cells from the younger or immature eggs as well as injecting them into the matured eggs. These rejuvenated eggs can then be made use of for IVF. This will certainly raise the required chances of success to a great extent.
This process of rejuvenating the matured eggs with younger egg cells was indeed pioneered in the US but was never brought into practical usage. The success of this procedure will no doubt open doors for those women suffering from fertility issues. One can hope for the best.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) has indeed enabled women to conceive children amid their reproductive problems. As women get older, no doubt, the chances of successful IVF treatments do become scarce.
Now, older women can become mothers as the chances are more for them to be so. Techniques are being adapted to boosts fertility by rejuvenating eggs.
Women can have several options to have their own respective genetic child. Men do continue to produce fresh sperm cells during their entire lives. Women do lose the quality of their egg cells as they grow older.
Eggs can get rejuvenated by replacing their own “batteries,” referred to as mitochondrial DNA. A certain egg precursor cell in the ovaries does carry younger mitochondrial DNA, which may be harvested and also replaced into an older egg.
The technique is indeed based on the concept that aging mitochondria is one of the most influential factors that are behind the failure of a fertilized egg in order to develop into a viable embryo. Hence, changing it with fresher ones may produce good results.
There is sufficient evidence that injecting healthier mitochondria into an IVF egg does indeed raise the success of turning it into a rather healthy embryo.
This technique was developed by Boston-based OvaScience, which was actually founded by fertility specialists.
Indeed childless couples even if they are older couples would like to have the child and do go in for various techniques of conception. Our IVF specialists in Hyderabad are always carrying out required research in order to help these childless couples to conceive.
