Understanding In Vitro Maturation of Oocytes (IVM)

In Vitro Maturation (IVM) represents a significant advancement in reproductive technology, offering an alternative to traditional IVF. This innovative procedure involves collecting immature eggs from the ovaries which are then matured in a laboratory setting. The key distinction of IVM from IVF lies in its minimal reliance on hormonal stimulation, making it a preferable choice for certain patient groups.

IVM is particularly beneficial for women at risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) and those needing urgent fertility preservation before undergoing treatments like chemotherapy. The process includes a short, mild hormonal treatment to stimulate the ovaries, followed by the collection of immature eggs. These eggs are then matured in the lab for 24-48 hours before being fertilized and transferred to the uterus, similar to the IVF process.

FAQs and Answers

IVM is a fertility treatment that involves collecting eggs from the ovaries before they have fully matured. These eggs are then matured in a laboratory setting before being fertilized with sperm. It's an alternative to traditional IVF, especially for those who may not respond well to the ovarian stimulation typically used in IVF.

IVM is particularly suited for women with a high ovarian reserve, such as those with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), as well as for individuals who prefer not to undergo ovarian stimulation due to personal health risks or preferences.

The key difference between IVM and IVF is the stage at which eggs are collected. In IVF, eggs are collected after they have matured in the ovaries following hormonal stimulation. In IVM, immature eggs are collected earlier and then matured in the lab.

Success rates for IVM can vary based on individual circumstances such as age, fertility issues, and the number of mature oocytes obtained. Gunasheela's team uses state-of-the-art technology and protocols to optimize success rates, and our specialists can provide more detailed information based on your specific situation.

The process involves initial assessments and monitoring, followed by the collection of immature eggs from the ovaries. These eggs are then matured in a lab for 24-48 hours before being fertilized with sperm. Resulting embryos can be transferred to the uterus or frozen for future use.
