The donated embryos to be transferred may come from couples who have done IVF and do not wish to have any more children, so they officially offer the embryos to other couples giving them the chance to become parents themselves. This is usually the case when couples have twins or triplets via IVF, or they already have other children, so they decide they want to offer their extra good quality embryos to other couples. Most often this involves a frozen embryo transfer (FET), unless the egg donor’s and the recipient’s ovulation cycles coincide.
In most cases, however, embryo adoption procedures at Anshu IVF Center involve fresh genetic material from selected egg donors and sperm donors.
This is similar to egg donation. In patients who are menstruating (having their periods) the hormonal control of the cycle is taken over by starting GnRh Analogue Injection such as Suprefact, Lupride or Nasaral spray starting from 21st day of previous cycle. Once the patient gets her period, Estradiol Valerate tablets( Progynova 2 mg) is started from the 2nd day of period. On the 10th day an ultrasound is done to assess the receptivity of the Endometrium by measuring its thickness.
An Endometrial thickness of more than 9mm is good for pregnancy. Once this is achieved, one can wait to obtain good quality embryos, to place back into the womb. It is important to note that with this regime, one can wait for as many as 35 days after starting Progynova, for an embryo transfer. The procedure is non-surgical, and there is no risk involved.
In case of menopausal woman, who have stopped having periods, cyclical hormones are given for 3-6 months till the time the patient starts having her periods. After that the procedure is the same, starting with Progynova tablets from the second day of period. In these women, there is no need to give GnRh analogues such as Suprefact, as the hormonal control has been naturally shut of.
