The couple is counseled by our trained counselor to explain the medical aspects of infertility and treatment options. She helps the couple to make an informed decision and provides them moral and emotional support. The counselor assists the couple at each step of the treatment cycle. The couple’s information is kept strictly confidential.
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)
In IVF the egg and sperms from the couple are allowed to fuse in a glass dish (In Vitro) and hence the word In Vitro Fertilization. The sperms are layered over the eggs retrieved from the woman and the process of fertilization occurs naturally under optimal conditions inside an incubator.
IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination)
IUI refers to Intra Uterine Insemination, in which concentrated and washed semen is placed inside the uterus (womb) of the woman. Patent Fallopian Tubes of the woman is the prerequisite for successful IUI. IUI is done around the time of ovulation (release of egg from ovary) to maximise the chances of pregnancy.
ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection)
ICSI is an advanced fertility treatment procedure and is performed by Santati in-house Embryologists who are highly skilled in the micro-manipulation technique. This technique is performed under a powerful microscope with magnification up to 400 times. A single egg of the woman is injected with a single sperm of the man.
Egg Donor Program
Egg donor program is offered to females with Premature Ovarian Failure or those with poor quality eggs. In such a case, an egg donor is chosen who donates her eggs which are fertilized with the sperm of the husband. The selection of a donor is done by the centre and anonymity of the donor as well as the patient is strictly maintained. This program is advised to a couple where Wife’s ovaries are unable to produce good sufficient eggs (Poor Ovarian Reserve) Premature Menopause (Premature Ovarian Failure) Wife’s eggs are of poor quality Ovaries have been removed or destroyed as a result of previous disease or surgery.
Sperm Donor program
This program is advised to a couple where husband’s semen has no sperm. For the couples opting for donor sperms, we procure semen sample from certified sperm banks. Donor IUI or IVF/ICSI is offered as per indication. The confidentiality and anonymity of the sperm donor as well as recipient couple is strictly maintained.
Embryo Donation Program
Embryo Donation program is advised to a couple where the wife has problem with the ovaries and her husband’s semen has no sperm. In such a case, eggs are taken from an anonymous donor and fertilized with the sperm of an anonymous sperm donor. The embryos thus formed are transferred inside the uterus (womb) of the patient. The confidentiality and anonymity of donors as well as the recipient couple is strictly maintained.
Surrogacy program is advised in cases where the woman is unable to carry the pregnancy. The eggs are retrieved from the biological mother and fertilized with the sperm of biological father. The embryos thus formed are transferred inside the uterus of the surrogate who carries the pregnancy for the commissioning couple till the birth of the child. A legal contract is signed between the surrogate mother and biological parents to facilitate this program
