Acupuncture For Infertility Treatment In Women
Acupuncture is the insertion of ultra thin sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body which reside on channels or meridians.These points can regulate the way in which the body functions.Patients are commonly treated for three to four months before progressing to in vitro fertilization.This pacing of treatment seems to have a therapeutic effect and increase the success rate.
Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress,increasing blood flow to reproductive organs and balancing the endocrinesystem according to several studies and medical research.
It is thought that the increased blood flow helps boost fertility by stimulating the ovaries to produce healthy eggs as well as enriching the endometrial lining in the uterus. The rich endometrial lining helps to ensure the eggs will be held to term.
Acupuncture also helps to relax the uterus and stop contractions, so blood flow increases and an embryo successfully implants.
How IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) Treatment works
IUI is the process of directly placing the prepared and washed sperm into the uterus at the time of ovulation, which eliminates the need for the sperm to travel,to reach the fallopian tube. This is often combined with fertility drugs to increase the chance of conception.
When to choose IUI
1. Mild abnormalities in semen analysis
2. unexplained infertility
3. Women having ovulation problems
4. Donor sperm
5. Cervical stenosis or abnormalities.
How is IUI Treatment done? Once collected, the semen sample is then washed in the laboratory to concentrate the sperm and remove the seminal fluid (seminal fluid can cause severe cramping in the woman). This process can take up to 2 hours to complete. IUI is performed near the time that the woman is ovulating.
The IUI treatment procedure is relatively simple and only takes a few minutes once the semen sample is ready. The woman lies on an examining table and the clinician inserts a speculum into her vagina to see her cervix. A catheter (narrow tube) is inserted through the cervix into the uterus and the washed semen sample is slowly injected.
How ICSI Treatment works
ICSI(intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is a special technique in IVF treatment where in a single sperm is directly injected into an egg to assist fertilization. ICSI is a boon to overcome severe male infertility problem.
In IVF (invitro fertilization ) ,the eggs and sperm are mixed together and incubated in a dish and the sperm has to be motile to penetrate the egg.In case of severe motility problem of the sperm, the sperm may not be able to fertilize the egg. In order to overcome this problem,the best sperms are selected and directly injected into the eggs using special equipment. Very few sperms are required and the ability of the sperm to penetrate the egg is no longer important by this technique.
ICSI Treatment is suitable for patients with
1. When the sperm count is low
2. when the motility problem of the sperm is very severe
3. Previous fertilization failure in IVF
4. Antisperm antibodies levels are high.
5. when semen analysis report shows azoospermia(no sperms).In this case when sperms are retrieved using PESA/TESE , ICSI is a boon for the couple to have their own genetic child
