Poor Response (POR)

In vitro maturation of oocytes in specialized culture system ( IVM) , has been found beneficial in couples with recurrent failures in conventional IVF and is one among the unique protocols which we adopt to help you foster a child from your own gamete .

Recurrent Implantation Failure (RIF)

RIF or the failure to achieve pregnancy with repeated transfer of good quality embryos is attributed to either uterine or embryo factors. We use advanced techniques for evaluating gamete and embryo quality. Couples are evaluated with PGS with next generation sequencing (NGS) to rule out the possibility of genetic abnormalities (N) and to obtain DNA Fragmentation Index for ascertaining sperm quality. 3D and 4D USG are performed under expert sonologist to rule out uterine pathologies if any, We have an experienced senior laparoscopic surgeon, who has performed over 20,000 laparoscopic surgeries for the diagnosis and treatment of various uterine and adnexal disorders.

Fertility Preservation

Increased incidence of cancer among youngsters and impact of cancer treatment on reproductive system is major concern in today’s world. With the latest advancements in cancer therapy, this deadly disease can be cured by a combination treatment involving surgery and/or chemotherapy. However, these treatment strategies can be gonadotoxic, with a high risk of premature ovarian failure and testicular failure leading to problems of infertility in both men and women.
Early detection of cancers and pre-treatment fertility preservation can help these couples achieve the dream of having a baby after such treatments . CRAFT offers fertility preservation options for post pubertal male (sperm cryopreservation) and post menarche female (oocyte cryopreservation, embryo cryopreservation and ovarian tissue preservation), thus expanding the range of possibilities for parenthood in future.

UIF is condition of patients were all standard investigations such as ovulation, total patency and semen analysis are found to be normal. For an infertile couple, a UIF diagnosis can be very frustrating. This often leads them to come to a conclusion that, there are no treatment exist for their problems, since there is no explanation for the cause of infertility
We do advanced investigation to understand the possibility of biological factors influencing the fertility by assessing sperm and oocyte as well as endometrial deficiencies which enables us to effectively diagnose the exact causes for infertility in UIF cases.
