What is PRP technique?
Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) become more common among the couples. In recent years, many people struggle with getting pregnant naturally due to changes in life-styles, illnesses or genetic disorders. Advanced maternal age, ovulation disorders, and abnormalities may cause infertility. These reasons are not only special to women. For this reason, before starting any treatment couples should be evaluated individually in order to find out the infertility reason. Different treatment options such as ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination (IUI), microinjection and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) are performed for the couples who cannot get spontaneous pregnancy.
What is IVF treatment, what are the steps and how is it applied?
Couples who need to get benefit of assisted reproductive treatments mostly have many questions about in-vitro fertilization treatments. With the help of IVF process, many couples completed their family and welcomed their children more than forty years. Assisted reproductive treatments increase the chance of having a baby in infertile couples who have low sperm and egg count.
In IVF process, after retrieving egg and sperm cells from the couples they are prepared by the embryologists in the laboratory. High quality embryo(s) are transferred to woman’s uterus and this process is called as embryo transfer. 12 days later following the embryo transfer a pregnancy test called as ß-hcg is done. This pregnancy test determines whether the mother-to-be is pregnant.
During the treatment process, patients can get therapy for ovulation problems or increasing sperm quality. All this process is observed by our doctors. Chance of the pregnancy could be higher with the most suitable treatment options.
How PRP technique is applied in IVF treatment?
Firstly, blood sample is taken from the patient. Then it is centrifuged and red blood cells, and leukocytes are separated from the sample. The liquid which contains platelet rich plasma is then concentrated. This sample is used for PRP technique in IVF treatment. PRP technique aims to increase success rate by thickening the endometrial lining and increasing the egg quality. This method is especially used in couples who has low ovarian reserve, previously failed attempts, low egg quality.
Endometrial Thickness affects the outcome of In Vitro Fertilisation Treatment
High quality embryos have a higher likelihood of leading to a successful pregnancy. These embryos are transferred to the uterus and they attach to the uterine wall. The thickness of endometrial lining has an important role. In order to have a successful result, endometrial receptivity should be optimal. Abortion, curettage or uterine infection may play casual role in implantation and thickness of uterine lining. A combined therapy should be performed in these cases in order to get a positive result.
Can PRP provide healthy and high-quality eggs?
Following PRP application, patient will be followed by the doctors 2 months with hormone therapy to support follicle development. When we get embryos in IVF treatment, with pre-implantation diagnostic method we can identify which embryos are healthy ones.
What is the success rate of PRP Method?
