Egg donation is the treatment indicated for patients who, for different reasons, may not have oocytes capable of producing a healthy, evolutionary embryo.
Nowadays, female fertility can be preserved through egg cell vitrification.
This way, oocytes can be used in the future.
Sperm samples can be frozen and stored in order to preserve male fertility.
Freezing is also done prior to a cycle in order to guarantee it´s availability when fertilization is required.
A high level of DNA fragmentation in sperm cells may represent a cause of male infertility that conventional examinations are not able to detect. This test will be able to detect this problem.
A sperm analysis is the study of a semen sample. It is the most important study for evaluating male fertility.
By waiting for embryos to reach the blastocyst stage, we will be able to select for transfer only the ones that have survived the cell division block that sometimes takes place on the third day.
Involves checking the genes and/or chromosomes of embryos created through IVF. This way, embryos with inheritable genetic diseases can be identified, and so only the healthy ones will be transferred.
