Embryo Freezing Ivf Cost In India

Embryo Prevent cost is Rs. 25000 + 5000 (Every year) and Frozen Embryo Transfer price is Rs. 25000 IVF. Usually in IVF, female produces several embryos among of which only single or few embryos are used and remaining are unused after the first cycle. Most of couples prefer to freeze them for later use or donate them to others for treatment, research or training purposes. The feasibility of becoming pregnant using a frozen embryo is never affected by the time span an embryo has been stored. However all embryos do not survive freezing only a few can. In few cases sperms are also stored.

Egg Freezing Rs. 25000 + 5000 (Every Year)

A couple can choose sperms and embryos freezing in the following cases:

1. To keep optional embryos for second IVF cycles.
2. If first treatment is cancelled after egg retrieval in case of no response to fertility medicine
3. If a past medical treatments are interrupting your fertility potential
4. You are at a risk of injury or death
5. You need to undergo gender change procedure

A written agreement is taken for embryo freezing in India from the couple. Embryos are created by IVF procedure and of the best quality are chosen for freezing. The agreement describes the length of period for which embryos will be frozen and other terms like future use or embryo donation. The agreement can also be modified as per the terms of couple. The specific procedure of embryo freezing or cryofreezing of eggs can be followed on the base of conditions and kind of treatment followed by clinic.

The exact procedure for using your frozen embryos varies, depending on your personal circumstances and the type of treatment your clinic offers. The steps followed are based on your ovulation procedure. If your menstruation is regular and treatment is offered daily, a physician may recommend following a natural cycle. On the other hand for irregular periods, drugs are prescribed for ovulation.

  • Egg development in the ovaries
  • Energizing them
  • Serves as a molecular biomarker for the relative size of the ovarian reserve.
AMH-Test-Antimullerian-Hormone

With this, there is a direct correlation between the number of eggs in the woman’s reserve and the amount of the Antimullerian Hormone. The AMH test is essential in women struggling with infertility and likewise to those with PCOS.

Women with PCOS have an increase in the number of the small antral follicles: the follicles develop and then stall before they are ovulated. In addition, contemporary research findings indicate that in addition to the increased number of small antral follicles in women affected by PCOS, there is also an increase in the production of AMH by the individual follicle cells

In the same way, increased AMH may cause ovulation stoppage, yet in the actual sense, AMH’s main role is to slow down and prevent the premature development of the follicles before they mature- keeping the ovaries from developing the eggs prematurely. Therefore, AMH works by reducing the ovary’s receptors to FSH, the main pituitary gland hormone that causes an egg to develop during each cycle.

In women with PCOS, the AMH is very high and this can immensely halt egg development and maturity. Scientists are uncertain about the actual cause of the ovarian cells to produce higher AMH levels in women with PCOS, but can be attributed to the increased levels of the LH hormone.

During the normal cycle, LH is released in a strong surge which triggers ovulation, but in case it exceeds the required level, it can inhibit ovulation and cause higher production of the testosterone hormone.

The Standard basis for diagnosing PCOS

Any two of the following approaches can aid in diagnosing PCOS in women;
  • Polycystic ovaries depicted via an ultrasound
  • Delayed Ovulation
  • Clinical criteria such as depicted increase in acne, hirsutism, and hair loss (increased androgens)

The AMH test is a convenient test that can be taken on any day during the cycle. The extensive studies indicate the following amount of AMH with age.

AMH-Level-With-Age

Age

41 &Above

0.5 – 2.5

3.57 – 17.85

ng/ml

38 – 40 

1.1 – 3.0

7.8 – 21.42

Pmol/L

33- 37

1.7 – 3.5

12.14 – 32.13

Pmol/L

Below 33

2.1 – 6.8

15.0 – 48

The readings indicate that any age, an AMH above 6.8 ng/ml (48 pmol/L) is considered high and a possible sign of PCOS.

Note:

The above top end ranges particularly for women over the age of 35. Various studies have shown that highly elevated levels (an AMH over 10ng/ml, “71 pmol/L) are witnessed in 97% of women who have PCOS.
