THERE IS NO ROLE OF TREATMENT FOR PCOD AT 19 YRS. FIRST OF ALL PCOD IS NOT A DISEASE WHICH CAN BE TREATED.SECONDLY TRETEMENT IF ATALL INDICATED WOULD BE AFTER SHE GETS MARRIED. THE MOMENT SHE STOPS THE MEDICINES HER PERIODS ARE GOOING TO FOLLOW THE ROUTINE IT USED TO BE BEFORE TAKING THE TABLETS. AS HER TO KEEP A WATCH ON THE WEIGHT AS SHE WOULD HAVE TENDENCY TO GAIN WEIGHT

There are three important things to be checked when you are trying for a baby. Your husbands semen analysis, checking whether you are releasing an egg every month and checking whether your Fallopian tubes (tubes attached your uterus where egg and sperm meet for fertilization). If you are having regular periods that mean you are most likely producing an egg every month. Tubes are checked by test known as HSG, which is a X-ray test. I am sure you would have had a scan of uterus and ovaries by now and no abnormality was found in that. The treatment depends on the cause. 20% of the couples have all normal test but still not able to have a baby. Three main treatment methods are giving tablets to produce eggs if you are not producing eggs properly every month. Second one is known as IUI, intrauterine insemination if the tablets are not giving any results and the last one is IVF that is test tube baby. For the first two treatments your tubes have to be normal (that means no block in the tubes). I can guide you exactly what treatment you need if I can see what tests have been done and the treatment you have undergone till now. Finally considering your height and weight given, your BMI (Boday Mass Index) is 32.7 which is on the obese side. So you need lose weight at least around 10-12 kg. Hope this is useful for you.

Role Of Quality Eggs In IVF Treatment

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, Certified IVF Specialist
IVF Specialist, Gurgaon
Role Of Quality Eggs In IVF Treatment

The concept of egg quality of a woman is derived from the belief that the embryo implantation probability is powerfully related to the age and ovarian reserve of the woman. Thus, it is regarded that the quality of the egg is almost synonymous with the chances of embryo implantation. Its quality cannot be assessed merely by looking at the egg or measuring its ability to receive the fertilization by sperm or simply observing the initial embryo division.

There are a few important factors that contribute to the success or failure of the embryo implantation and some of them are:

  1. Diminished ovarian reserve: A woman with an increased FSH level on the third day of the menses is regarded as having diminished reserve of ovary. This implies that her ovary is not competent in sending feedback signals to the pituitary gland and the body responds by producing an increased amount of FSH for stimulating the ovary. For more than 10 years, it has been found that in over thousands of fertility treatment cycles, women with an increased FSH level have a lower egg quality.
  2. Advanced age of maternity: Even though the FSH level is normal, the age of the mother who provides the eggs plays an important role to determine the quality of the egg. Quite like women with increased FSH levels, eggs obtained from women aged more than 40 years can have some problems at a later stage of fertilization. Normal FSH levels are not considered a reassuring factor, owing to the lower implantation rate in females aged over 45 years.
  3. Diminished quality of egg: With an increase in age, the capacity of the mitochondria in producing energy slowly decreases. The egg is linked to the circulation before ovulation, and it is linked again after the embryo implantation. But during the one week time ranging from ovulation to implantation, the egg and the resulting embryo are contained in the zona pellucida and function on the basis of mitochondrial energy supply. The older age of the woman doesn’t cause any problem at the initial stage of ovulation. Its fertilization and embryonic development are also normal. But soon, it runs out of energy and stops dividing before reaching the stage of implantation.

Therefore, it is important to have the eggs tested to find out any sort of chromosomal abnormality. In case the mother is deficient of producing high-quality eggs, the best option is to have donor eggs.

Mitochondrial Concept:

Mitochondrial replacement (MRT, sometimes called mitochondrial donation) is a special form of in vitro fertilisation in which the future baby's mitochondrial DNA comes from a third party. This technique is used in cases when mothers carry genes for mitochondrial diseases. The two most common techniques in mitochondrial donation are pronuclear transfer and maternal spindle transfer.

Cells are the tiniest part of any organism including the human body, but has various parts within, which have specific functions. The mitochondria, for instance, are the batteries of the cells and produce energy for all functions, including cellular movement and adequate cellular function.

The egg, being a single cell, also is highly dependent on the mitochondria for its optimal function. For an egg to be healthy, it should have optimal energy, and that comes only when the mitochondria is functioning at its best. This determines the overall quality of the egg too. Poor eggs, it is well established, is one of the major cause of infertility, as it cannot implant itself and sustain the entire term of pregnancy.
Studies have confirmed that eggs have more mitochondria than normal cells, as their energy requirements are higher.

The ovaries have cells called precursor cells, which eventually can become eggs and get fertilized. Studies have shown that when mitochondria from these precursor cells are infused into the fertilized egg, the overall quality of the egg improves and therefore improves chances of fertilization.

Mitochondrial transfer is the new technique which is being developed and has resulted in a baby but involves third party IVF and hence is in a ethical debate. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a IVF Specialist.
