Embryo Transfer

The growth of the embryo is assessed and at a suitable stage, the embryo is transferred back to the female’s uterus at the four or eight cell stage by means of a fine tube inserted through the cervical canal. The embryo is held between the two air bubbles in a fine tube. More than two embryos are usually transferred to improve the chances of success.

  • 2-embryo transfer: 15 % success
  • 3-embryo transfer: 25 % success
  • 4-embryo transfer: 35 % success

This practice has resulted in many multiple births about 20-25%, compared to just 1 % in the general population. This has raised reasons for concern due to stillbirth, high infant mortality rates and the risk of delivering low birth weight babies.

For each month an attempt is made, only about 10 % eventually end up in a live birth. The major stumbling block in the IVF seems to be the failure of the embryo to implant after transfer to the recipients uterus.

IVF treatments are boon for medical science for the infertile men and women. It offers more chances for getting pregnant with the help of clinical treatments. IVF treatments are getting popularity day by day as in the starting people were not aware about IVF treatments but now sterile couple are showing interest in in-vitro fertilization.

In the past decade, individuals have decried the concept of “designer babies” - using genetic manipulation to create kids to parents’ specifications. Critics are slamming the practice for making humans a commodity like a steak, though there are several practical applications involved such as staying away from horrible genetic disorders.
