Does Quality of Eggs Affect IVF Treatment?

Does Quality of Eggs Affect IVF Treatment?

Whenever a couple opts for IVF, the main question in their mind is that will it be successful? The chances depend on a number of factors, the most important one being the quality of eggs. If the eggs are not good, they will not be able to get fertilized, or even if they get fertilized the embryo they will form will be abnormal. Thus to be precise, IVF treatment requires a successful embryo implantation which can be only possible if the eggs are good. Thus, directly or indirectly, the egg quality influences the success of IVF treatment. If an embryo looks good, it does not mean that the implantation will be carried out successfully. Many internal factors too contribute to the quality of eggs and thus the success of IVF treatment. These factors are discussed below.

Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal imbalance is one of the most widespread reasons behind many problems, and IVF treatment is no exception. When a woman is reported to have more than normal levels of the Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH on the third day of her menstrual cycle, then a popular term is used by the doctors, that is, “diminishes ovarian reserve.” What does this really mean? This means that the woman’s eggs are not healthy. Although they would look healthy and even get fertilized normally.

Not only this but they will also experience embryonic cleavage in a totally normal way. But the difference is that they won’t divide further beyond the eight-celled stage and implantation is impossible. What happens is that the ovaries do not produce enough signals that are required and the pituitary gland does not receive the signals that it should. So the body synthesizes more FSH to stimulate the ovaries. This ultimately leads to a diminished ovarian reserve and thus a decreased egg quality. Since implantation is not possible, IVF becomes a failure.

Advancing age of the woman
Imbalance in the FSH levels is not the only reason behind IVF failure. Even if the levels are okay, the age of the woman may also lead to failure. You must be wondering why. So here is the answer to your question. With age, the spindle fiber gets broken, and thus the chromosomes are not separated equally. This leads to unequal division of the chromosomes. Ultimately the eggs become abnormal genetically, and the embryo that results from them become abnormal too.

IVF success relies on a number of factors and egg quality is just one of them. But it is also one of the crucial factors. Speak to your doctor and be sure from beforehand about your egg quality so that your efforts do not go waste.

If you want to discuss any other problem, Consult an IVF Specialist.

Hello lybrate-user, taking meftal spas regularly can be harmful for the kidney in the long run. It is better that you restrict the consumption of the tablet to maximum two in a day and take it only and only if there is severe pain. It will be better if you can take homeopathic treatment instead as it will reduce the pain and there is no side effects as well. I will however need some more information about your condition to prescribe the most appropriate treatment for you.

Myths About Homeopathy

Homeopath,
Myths About Homeopathy

Just over 200 years old

Homeopathy was founded by the great german physician samuel hahnemann in 1796 and is thus the youngest of all the medical sciences. Homeopathic clinical practice is becoming more standardized and homeopathic pharmaceutical companies are now adhering to regulatory norms. Homeopathy is based on the law of similars, according to which, a substance capable of producing certain symptoms in a healthy individual is capable of treating similar symptoms in a diseased person. Thus, the logic is to evoke a healing response from the body itself rather than trying to suppress the disease manifestation.


 

Myths About Homeopathy

Here are some of the common myths (about homeopathy) that have clearly fallen apart:


 

Myth 1: Homeopathic medicines are placeboes

Our answer to this: the world health organization (who) has recognized homeopathy as an accepted system of medicine and the world's second largest system of medicine. There have been many double blind trials conducted where the efficacy of homeopathic medicines have been proved. Studies have shown the ability of homeopathic medicines to induce physiological changes in the body temperature. Homeopathy even works on animals in diseases like distemper and fifty percent of veterinary doctors in uk use homeopathy. It shows effective results in infants even in acute diseases such as abdominal colic. This would not have been possible if homeopathic remedies were placeboes.


 

Myth 2: Homeopathic medicines are slow to act and cannot be used in acute cases

Our answer to this: most people take recourse in homeopathy for chronic problems such as arthritis, allergic asthma or skin conditions, etc, which take a longer time to be treated with any other system of medicine too. However, in acute ailments like fever, diarrhoea, acute cold, cough, etc, homeopathic remedies act as fast as conventional medicines, sometimes even faster.


 

Myth 3: All homeopathic medicines are the same

Our answer to this: although all homeopathic medicines look alike, essentially they are not the same. The basic ingredients of homeopathic medicines come from 3000 different sources that are mainly derived from plants and minerals. Their active principles are extracted into various solvents. For better palatability, the liquid homeopathic medicine is poured into small globules, which are highly porous and therefore absorptive. Although they may look alike, every homeopathic remedy is different from another.


 

Myth 4: Homeopathy cannot help surgical cases at all

Our answer to this: a number of surgical conditions can be treated effectively with homeopathy, for e.g. Recurrent tonsillitis, piles, fissures, fistula, chronic ear discharge, vocal cord nodules, kidney and gall bladder stones, small-sized uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, warts and corns. However, every medical science has its set of advantages and limitations. Thus, in certain cases where the disease has reached an advanced stage or in emergency cases, surgery is essential and cannot be avoided. In fact, many surgeons and dentists use homeopathy pre and post operatively. A homeopathic remedy calendula is recommended as an external application by many surgeons to facilitate better surgical wound healing without leaving behind ugly scars.


 

Myth 5: There are too many dietary restrictions to be followed during homeopathic treatment

Our answer to this: the only medical restrictions that a homeopath may impose depend upon the disease that the patient suffers from; for example, diabetics should avoid sweets and a high carbohydrate diet. Since homeopathic medicines act through nerve endings, traditional homeopaths do not prefer the use or consumption of any substance with strong odors like toothpaste, garlic, onions, etc, as this could affect the action of homeopathic medicines. Modern homeopaths recommend having the medicines after rinsing the mouth half an hour before and after meals and also advocate placing the medicine below the tongue for best results.


 

Myth 6: Homeopathy and allopathy cannot be taken together

Our answer to this: in patients suffering from drug-dependant diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure, allopathic drugs cannot be suddenly withdrawn; hence, homeopathic medicines may be taken with allopathic medicines. However, allopathic medicine is often palliative or suppressive. For example, if a patient with headache takes a painkiller, his symptoms would get masked and therefore a good prescription by a homeopath could become difficult. Similarly, some medicines in allopathy tend to suppress rather than cure while homeopathic medicines may expel toxins. In such cases, it is better to take homeopathy alone.


 

Advantages of Homeopathy:

Homeopathic remedies are easy to take with no special dietary or lifestyle restrictions, unless a particular disease calls for them. Additionally, homeopathy is against animal testing as this tends to harm them irrevocably or kills them. Homeopathic remedies, being infinitesimally small doses, are absolutely safe and therefore directly tested on healthy human beings through a scientific process called drug proving. Another benefit is that while animal testing only provides information about structural pathologies, homeopathic drug proving enables recording of even mental and emotional symptoms.


 

Effective, Safe and Gentle Treatment:

The curative effects and the symptomatology of every homeopathic medicine are proven only on healthy human beings, not rats and rabbits, making homeopathy uniquely reliable. Homeopathic medicines are prepared by the process of dynamization, in which, the original medicinal substance, irrespective of its nature whether inert or toxic initially, undergoes serial dilutions with constant friction so as to liberate its healing bioenergies whilst getting rid of its ability to produce any side-effects. Being infinitesimally small doses, these medicines do not produce any adverse reactions even when taken for prolonged periods of time and can therefore be safely given even to babies, children, and elderly people.


 

Patient-Friendly and Convenient

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that assists the natural tendency of the human body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines being easy to administer, sweet to taste, non-invasive and free of side-effects, are extremely convenient for the patient and therefore command better patient compliance. They are absolutely safe even if taken for prolonged periods of time. Unlike other medical systems where many drugs need to be administered to treat multiple symptoms in a single patient, homeopathy advocates the administration of a single remedy called the similimum that is capable of treating all the disease symptoms in a particular patient. It is a subtle yet effective therapy that can correct small imbalances long before the appearance of the more serious symptoms that indicate the onset of a particular disease. The doctor-patient relationship is vital in homeopathy, where the homeopath becomes a friend, philosopher, and guide to the patient, a healer as well as a preserver of good health.


 

Cost-Effective Treatment

Homeopathic treatment is extremely cost-effective in the long run especially keeping in mind that treatment is sought for chronic diseases that need long-term treatment. Homeopathy believes in employing a single remedy, in minimum dose and minimal repetition when treating any patient. Since homeopathic medicines are prepared by serial dilutions, a miniscule amount of the original medicinal substance is required when manufacturing the medicines. Additionally, since only a few drops of the medicine are used to medicate the sugar globules, preparation costs are also low. Homeopathic medicines are therefore inexpensive as compared to medicines from the other medical systems. Moreover, homeopathy also obviates the need for surgery in a number of conditions such as warts, piles, fissures, tonsillitis, ovarian cysts and kidney stones for which patient may otherwise have to pay up a lot for conventional treatment methods.

No harm in waiting for a week and repeating the ultrasound to see for cardiac activity to be sure. Was the scan done on 9th may or 9th june? If u otherwise have irregular cycles there may be all the more benefit of waiting. As on 9th june it is 6 weeks and 4 days pregnancy but its always wise to wait. No foetal pole however is a bad sign but waiting for 1 week will not do any harm

YOu need to meet during ovulation period, if your menses are normal let us say once in 28 or 30 days then 12th to 14th days are ideal when pregnancy can happen to be on the safer side meet every day fromm 11th to 15th day. Before that first test your husbands Semen count.

Hi, No, you need not wait upto 10 days to get positive results. If your periods are regular and if it gets postponed for few days after marriage, urine test can be done on 31st or 32nd day itself. As your urine test is now negative, the other symptoms may be due to acidity. Kindly consult your doctor and get examined.
