In vitro fertilization – IVF is a complex process in which eggs are removed from the ovaries and manually combined with sperm in the laboratory for fertilization. A few days after fertilization, the fertilized egg (now called an embryo) is placed in the uterus. Pregnancy occurs when the embryo implants into the uterine wall.
According to Islamic law, all assisted reproductive techniques (ART) are permitted to provide sperm, eggs and uterus from a legal couple during marriage. No other party should violate the law of reproduction of sexual intercourse and marriage.
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is a reproductive technology in which an egg and sperm are combined outside the body, and the resulting embryo is then implanted in the uterus. The process involves ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo culture, and embryo transfer.
Female age is a crucial factor, as fertility declines with age, particularly after the age of 35. Younger women generally have better chances of success with IVF. Male age can also impact outcomes, with sperm quality potentially decreasing as men age. Overall, successful IVF outcomes are more.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a method used during in vitro fertilization (IVF) in which a single sperm is injected directly into the egg to achieve fertilization.
During ICSI treatment in Pakistan, a single sperm (the best and live one) is injected directly into the woman’s egg for fertilization. ICSI has several methods to increase fertilization success rates. The cost of ICSI in Pakistan is Rs 750,000 to 850,000.
PGD is a laboratory procedure used in conjunction with IVF to reduce risk of passing on hereditary conditions. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis is useful if one or both parents have a known genetic abnormality.
PGD is a method used to select gender in the embryos. In this technique few cells are removed from embryo prepared through IVF and tested for the presence of Y or X chromosome. Y chromosome is essential for Male gender and X chromosome is for female.
Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) is a reproductive technology used during in vitro fertilization (IVF). It involves screening embryos for chromosomal abnormalities before implantation in the uterus. PGS helps identify embryos with a normal chromosomal complement, reducing the risk of implanting embryos with genetic disorders and improving the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), also known as preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A), determines the chromosomal status of the embryo by examining all 23 pairs of chromosomes and provides important information for researchers to study IVF.
IUI – Intrauterine Insemination, is a fertility treatment in which sperm is directly placed into a woman’s uterus during ovulation. This procedure is aimed at increasing the chances of sperm reaching the egg and facilitating fertilization.
After completing Intrauterine insemination (IUI) it takes 6 to 12 days for the fertilized egg to implant and hCG takes 2 to 3 days to develop, you will understand why it is better to wait less than the last 14 days before the pregnancy test.
The success rate of intrauterine insemination (IUI) can vary widely and depends on factors such as the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and the clinic’s expertise. On average, success rates range from 10% to 20% per cycle, but individual experiences may differ.
A test tube baby refers to a child conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF), a medical procedure where an egg and sperm are combined outside the body in a laboratory dish. The fertilized egg (embryo) is then implanted into the woman’s uterus for pregnancy to occur. The process is used to help couples with fertility issues or those unable to conceive naturally.
Yes, it is possible for a baby to be conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF), which involves fertilizing an egg with sperm outside the body and then implanting the fertilized embryo into the uterus. However, the term “test tube baby” is a bit outdated, as modern techniques often involve petri dishes instead of test tubes.
Islam allows all assisted reproductive technologies, provided that the sperm source, egg source and incubator (uterus) are from a legally married husband and wife. According to Islam, if a man or woman is beyond repair, they must be accepted.
