All  Shapes and Versions of Love are AWESOME! You may wonder: Is the love so  beautiful? Is the love so charming? Is the love so delicate? Is the  love so ephemeral? Is the love so inspiring? Is love so confusing? Is  love so embarrassing? Is love so destroying? Is love so frustrating? The  answer to every question is ‘Yes’ as the love has so many categories.  Love is pure. It’s unadulterated and untouched. It’s one of the most  vulnerable emotions a person can utmost strongly feel. The EMOTION of  LOVE is unique and unsurpassable. Love is an exhausting concept,  emotion, feeling, experience, as it is not always charmingly cordial,  passionately hugged, elegantly glimpsed, or inspiringly glanced.

Sometimes  you chose to love your soul mate, sometimes you chose to love an  authentic personality with different intentions, with different  preferences, with different priorities, with different emotional  patterns, with different behavioral patterns. Having the relationship  with your soul mate means having the loved one who is your authentic  version, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back,  the person who brings you to your own attention, so you can change your  life. And sometimes it is very difficult to be in the relationship with  your soul mate. Because it is too embarrassing. Because it is too  intriguing. Because it is too painful. And if you are in the  relationship with your soul mate, never ignore, or never neglect the  emotions, the feelings, the glances, the gestures, the smiles, the hugs,  or the words. Because it is the same as ignoring or neglecting  yourself. It causes the deepest emotional abuse. It causes the deepest  frustration. It causes anxiety. It causes bitterness. Wondering why?  Being in the relationship with your soul mate reveals the new versions  of yourself through shaking you up, interfering with your wishes, making you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your  life entirely, inspiring the utmost delicate feelings inside your soul…  Love should be represented in the utmost delicate style after that  ‘wrapped’ in the utmost wonderful envelope and given in the utmost  cordial way. Without rules or expectations. Without guilt. Without  trying too hard.

Wondering What  Options Two Mommies May Choose to Have One Tiny One or More Tiny Ones?  There are five wonderful options that may be proposed by the Fertility  Clinics for Two Mommies! Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with  donor sperm, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with donor sperm, In Vitro  Fertilization (IVF) via ICSI with donor sperm, IVF with donor sperm and  donor oocyte, and Surrogacy are design for you both to implement your  dream of having tiny one or several tiny bundles in the reality!

(1) Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm

Wondering what is Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)? Intrauterine  insemination (IUI) is the non–invasive procedure where sperm are washed  (to remove dead sperm and proteins), concentrated (to increase the  volume of the viable sperm), and placed into the woman’s uterus via a  tiny catheter (a very small tube) around the most optimal time of  ovulation. This procedure is done as close to the time of ovulation as  possible. The Reproductive Specialist may recommend you Intrauterine  insemination (IUI) with ovarian stimulation or without ovarian. The mode  of IUI insemination also varies as the sperm suspension can be  deposited in the cervix, the uterus or the Fallopian tube.

Everything  starts with choosing the handsome dude who will be “a father” for your  tiny one! You may choose the handsome dude you know very well and if he  says: “Yes!” the Mystery of Embryo Design will start! Or, even if he  whispers you both: “NO!!! Never!”, and disappears somewhere in the cold  December’s snow–whirls… Be sure, he will be completely mind–blown  meeting you or even you both with cutely–shaped baby–bumps wandering  around the glittering evening streets in May–scented time!

Spring–time  is SPECIAL… It comes with its own eternal promises and gorgeous  metaphors. It is glittering, glowing and sparkling! Have you ever  noticed HOW GORGEOUS the Spring’s Fragrance’–Whirls are? Myriads of  Bustling Scents of ALL warmest notes, of all sparkling COLORS, and all  envisioned SHAPES are cuddling against each other, amusingly curling  their edges, romantically hugging each other, making the UNIQUELY  BRANDED NOTES “holding” each other and whirling& Sparkling in the  warm spring’s air flows! You and your loved one bundled up! Covered your  shoulders and décolleté with the multicolored scarves… A little bit  SCENTED SPARKLES around your wrists… This fragrance should give you that  feeling. It should have a hazy, golden, soft focus quality to it, the  feeling of sun warming your skin, that magical hour or so in the evening  when the light turns everything to gold! Let this fragrance’s opening  to be very full, heady and strong, a little too strong, too glittering! A  little bit Caramel Gold GLITTERS around your wonderful curls… The  boutique gold–colored ballet shoes… Seven minutes for your fingertips  playing with those tiny BOOTIES curled up inside… And you are ready to  FEEL the May around yourself!

Just  envision this unforgettable scene: the scented evening has just started!  The gorgeous moonshine, spring notes of the utmost delicate scents, and  the TRUST based on the intriguing conversations… Everything that makes  the dazzling spring luxury so cordial, and so beautiful, hides something  hideous for that handsome dude who screamed you: “No! Never! Never ever  even in your imagination! I will never be a father for your tiny one!  No, NO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” That handsome dude in couture clothes with  his iPhone in his hands is typing the message for someone. Bump! He  casts a furtive glance at you both and notices… that you/you both are  with cutely–shaped baby–bumps wandering around the glittering evening  streets in May–scented time! You both are curling the intriguing smiles,  making your languishing eyes glittering with a special hint, and  whisper: “Hey, it was unforgettable! In four months you will be a  father! How? Wondering how is that possible? You didn’t remember? Oh,  no!” It is high time to disappear in the evening air–flows for you both!

What  has happened earlier??? You and your loved one glanced through the  myriad of Glittering Medical CVs of the Dudes! That Dude–Catalog was so  huge! You glimpsed at the dudes’ profile photos, read the information  noted near them and discussed who should be chosen? Then, you FOUND the  ideal version of the Dude you asked to be a father [or, maybe you found  him in the catalog…as everything is possible…]. Yes, the one with dark  sparkling eyes, ideal sparkling skin, intriguing smile, cute dark–gold  hair, and perfect body–shape… HE is basically so attractive, that even  you wonder if HE is for real. He is impeccably charming... You cannot  even utter a single word… You are literally spellbound by him… How  beautiful will be your tiny one… It is beyond your imagination! The only  thing you can explain to the doctor sitting opposite to you is: “We  choose Him!”

Semen preparation is done before IUI procedure

Prior  to IUI procedure, they will remove seminal plasma to avoid  prostaglandin–induced uterine contractions. If seminal plasma is not  removed, then uterine contractions can make the procedure not only  painful but complicated and ineffective. Moreover, insemination with  unprocessed semen can cause a pelvic infection. Removal of the seminal  plasma can be achieved by relatively simple procedures. The most  frequently used methods involve centrifuging spermatozoa through culture  medium or density gradients followed by resuspension in suitable  culture media.

Quality of the specimen

There  is no consensus on a lower limit of semen quality. The experts define  lower limits differently, as sperm concentration per milliliter, or as  the total number of motile spermatozoa in the semen sample, or as a  total number of motile spermatozoa in the sample for insemination. But  here it should be noted that if the semen sample contains <10 million  sperm in total the chances to conceive the tiny one is lower.

Mode of insemination procedure

During  IUI procedure the sperm suspension can be deposited in the cervix, the  uterus, the peritoneum or the Fallopian tube. IUI is by far the most  common method. It is performed by introducing a 0.2–0.5 ml sperm  suspension into the uterus with a tiny catheter, usually without  ultrasound–imaging guidance.

With  Fallopian tube sperm perfusion (FSP), the sperm volume usually taken for  insemination is 4 ml, so that with this large volume of fluid the  inseminate may fill not only the uterine cavity and Fallopian tubes.  With Fallopian tube sperm perfusion some of the sperm volume may even  end up inside the peritoneal cavity.

Sometimes  IUI procedure is done using the frozen semen samples. Here it is vital  to underline that for frozen semen samples, IUI is better than  intracervical insemination (ICI).

The timing of the insemination procedure

Correct  time–scheduling of IUI is essential, because of the limited time  interval in which spermatozoa can retain their capability to fertilize  the oocyte and survive in the female reproductive tract for  approximately 3 days after ejaculation, while oocytes remain  fertilizable only for 12–16 hours after ovulation.

In  the case of IUI, spermatozoa are processed, devoid of seminal plasma  and only the fraction of selected. After that, motile spermatozoa is  transferred via a tiny catheter directly into the uterine cavity.  Considering these facts, the time frame within which a successful  conception after IUI procedure is possible is shorter than in the  setting of natural conception cycle. Therefore, the procedure should  ideally be scheduled as closely to the time of ovulation as possible to  increase the possibilities of successful oocyte’s fertilization.

IUI  can be done one time or several times. Insemination can be done at  various time points around ovulation. If it is done without ovarian  stimulation with fertility drugs, then the ovulation timing is closely  monitored by the internal ultrasound. If ovarian stimulation is  necessary for IUI procedure, then the most optimal time for the  insemination is 32–36 hours following hCG administration.

In which cases Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is forbidden to be used? Surely,  there are several contraindications for this treatment option. IUI is  contraindicated in women with a blocked or damaged Fallopian tube,  cervical atresia, cervicitis, endometritis or bilateral tubal  obstruction and in most cases of amenorrhea or severe oligospermia.

What Benefits Does IUI Have? 

(I) Washing procedures enhance sperm quality

Clinicians  perform the washing procedures to remove prostaglandins, infectious  agents, antigenic proteins, non–motile spermatozoa, leucocytes, and  immature germ cells. As a result, sperm quality increases. This may also  enhance sperm quality by decreasing the formation of free oxygen  radicals after sperm preparation.

(II) Natural (unmedicated) cycle IUI is possible to perform

With  IUI you have options with medications. You can do a natural cycle (no  medications), with Clomid (a pill to stimulate follicles) or with low  stimulation medications. Natural cycle IUI and minimal dose regimen with  gonadotrophins are valuable options to prevent the unacceptable high  multiple gestation rates described after ovarian hyperstimulation.

(III) Less invasive method: more physiological

Intrauterine  insemination is the procedure where sperm are washed (to remove dead  sperm and proteins), concentrated (to increase the volume of the viable  sperm), and placed in a woman’s uterus via a catheter (a very small tube  that is passed up the cervix and into the uterus). You don’t have the  oocyte retrieval [surgical procedure which is performed under the  anesthesiology on the operating table] as you do with IVF.

(IV) Reduced psychological burden 

After  the oocyte retrieval [the whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes,  so you wake up about 20–30 minutes later in recovery], at first you  don’t feel any pain because they give you some good pain medications  through the IV, but once those wear off the pain is terrible.  Apparently, the amount of pain a woman feels after oocyte retrieval  depends entirely on pain tolerance and the number of oocytes retrieved.

(V) The procedure is performed under the transvaginal ultrasound guidance

The  IUI is performed under an internal ultrasound [a transvaginal  ultrasound] and as soon as the technician performed an external  ultrasound, a tiny catheter is inserted into cervix. Using the  ultrasound screen as the guide, the doctor pushes the catheter through  the cervical canal and points it toward the top of the uterus and right  or left Fallopian tube (the side with the mature follicle). Ultimately,  the doctor injects the sperm through the catheter and into the uterus.  The IUI may be performed also without ultrasound visualizing. The  technique is the same: a tiny catheter is placed inside and the sperm is  transferred via that tiny catheter inside uterus. IUI procedure usually  is usually completed within a few minutes!

(VI) The timing of the procedure performance is surprisingly short

The process lasts only about 60 to 90 seconds. After that, you will be advised to stay seated for a few minutes.

(VII) Less expensive treatment option

In  comparison with IVF and ICSI, IUI is less expensive fertility treatment  option. The whole IUI treatment cycle cost around $2,000–$4,000  including medications where the average IVF treatment cycle costs around  $10,000–$36,000. So, you can get a few IUI treatment cycles in for the  rate of 1 IVF treatment cycle.

(VIII) Low risk for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)

Ovarian  hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) occurs in 1%–10% of women undergoing  ovarian hyperstimulation with exogenous gonadotrophin administration and  is a recognized and potentially life–threatening complication. Ovarian  hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) may complicate all methods of treatment  in which gonadotrophins are used; however, OHSS seems to be rare after  controlled ovarian hyperstimulation–IUI (COH–IUI) compared with IVF due  to the fact that lower dose stimulation protocols are more often used.

(IX) Low risk of thromboembolism

Deep  venous thrombosis (blood clots) has been reported extensively following  ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome during in–vitro fertilization (IVF)  treatment cycles. The thromboembolic event is dangerous because it is a  prominent cause of maternal deaths. It is also unpredictable because  there is no clinical marker to reveal it early. The site of the  thromboses, the timing of thromboses relative to oocyte retrieval, and  possible predisposing factors are hard to diagnose.

(X) More effective than Intracervical Insemination (ICI)

If  you are proposed ICI, you should know that IUI is more effective.  Wondering why? ICI involves placing the sperm into the cervix. Once  placed in the cervix, the sperm then make their way to the uterus where  they can fertilize the oocyte, mimicking the action of natural  fertilization. IUI involves placing the sperm directly inside the  uterus. Because this technique bypasses the cervix and does not rely on  the sperm traveling to the uterus themselves, the chances of  fertilization are increased.

(2)  In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with donor sperm, In Vitro Fertilization  with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, In Vitro Fertilization with donor  oocyte and donor sperm

What  if you would be proposed IVF cycle? Sometimes there are the situations  when IUI cycle doesn’t work. No worries here! IVF cycle is more advanced  and sophisticated treatment option! It is designed to make you  dream come true! There are three blended versions of IVF cycle for you:  (1) In Vitro Fertilization with donor sperm, (2) Intracytoplasmic Sperm  Injection with one Boutique–quality spermatozoon to design the ideal  sparkling tiny embryo–dude or gorgeous embryo–lady, (3) In Vitro  Fertilization with donor oocyte and donor sperm – for extreme cases you  may chose both donors and cordially hug your tiny one or sparkling tiny  ones even knowing that it is not your absolute tiny versions but their  appearance will be nearly yours!

What are your  thoughts about IVF? Any ideas? You may consider that it is something  Magical. It is something Mysterious. It is something Impossible to  Understand Completely. It is something that Does the Wonders. And it  really does the Wonders! IVF treatment cycle literally involves you in  the other reality. And this New Reality is designed for your Tiny Embryo  Creation! There are so many Amusing Facts about IVF treatment that you  may find your mind lost. Therefore, we have chosen top 10 facts which  will surprise you or remind you something essential.

What is an ‘EMBRYO’?

The  assembly of a new life first depends on the union between a  spermatozoon and an oocyte culminating in fertilization. If the  fertilization occurs, the EMBRYO APPEARS. Fertilization is a mysterious  phenomenon that turns two cells into a tiny embryo–dude or a tiny  embryo–lady, or if two oocytes are fertilized than…two tiny  embryo–dudes! Or two tiny embryo–ladies! Or if three oocytes are  fertilized than three tiny embryo–babies: two tiny Handsome Embryo–Dudes  and one Tiny Sparkling Embryo–Lady! The Miracles Start Here… The Tiny  Sparkles are here… Many versions can be inserted here…

How Does the Tiny Sparkling Embryo Appear in a Natural Way?

Wondering  how does Fertilization happen? Usually, a spermatozoon and an oocyte  ‘meet’ in one of the two Fallopian tubes that connect the ovaries to the  womb (uterus). Wondering how does the embryo–baby normally ‘appears’  and implants in the uterus? The tiny embryo–dude or the tiny embryo–lady  (fertilized oocyte) then moves down the Fallopian tube by being wafted  by fine hairs inside the tubes until it reaches the womb (uterus) two,  three or four days later. Once there, this tiny embryo–bundle wonders  where it should cuddle up itself in this new place. And it implants,  attaching itself to the womb lining and that is where it usually  continues to grow and develop.

The  ability of the Fallopian tube to transfer the early embryo into the  uterus is an excessive modality for a successful pregnancy. Apparently,  structural abnormalities and functional abnormalities of the Fallopian  tube will interfere with the embryo transfer process that can lead to  tubal pregnancy.

How Does the Embryo Appear in Case if it is IVF Treatment Cycle? 

In  Vitro Fertilization Treatment Cycle is designed to create the Tiny  Sparkling Embryos in the laboratory and after that to transfer them to  the mother’s uterus. In other words, FERTILIZATION [or EMBRYO  ‘CREATION’] happens in the laboratory.

The Tiny Perfect Embryos Are Made Exclusively [‘DESIGNED’] For You

Fertilization  (making the embryos from your oocytes and donor’s sperm) is possible  even in difficult cases. Not always the standard insemination can be  used for the oocyte fertilization.

Embryologists  will ‘design’ your tiny sparkling embryo–ladies and handsome  embryo–dudes in the laboratory. They will take the retrieved oocytes and  toss them in a Petri dish with your donor’s sperm and let them do their  thing [YAY!]... Another option is called intracytoplasmic sperm  injection (ICSI), where the Embryologists manually fertilize the oocytes  with the sperm individually. The ICSI procedure is done with the aid of  a microscope and fine instruments, one single “boutique” spermatozoon  is taken and injected directly into every mature oocyte!

Indications  for ICSI include such cases as the previous semen analysis  demonstrating significant abnormalities, in situations where surgical  aspiration of sperm from the vas deferens or testicle, or a previous IVF  cycle with poor fertilization. You will know the next morning how many  of your oocytes have been fertilized correctly. After that, you will be  waiting three long days or…more. And then you have to wait. Three long  days. Or...more.

On day 3, you get a  Day 3 growth report, and it’s the scariest and the most exciting phone  call of your life. The phone call from your Embryologist. The  embryologist will tell you how many embryos Fair, Good, and Excellent  quality are. Can you imagine that? Those ones glittering gorgeous tiny  embryo–ladies and handsome embryo–dudes were designed especially for  you. All of them are perfect. And all of them are anticipating the time  when they will be with you.

Mock Embryo Transfer Increases the Chances That Your Tiny Embryo Will Be Accurately Placed Inside

Embryo  transfer is a blind procedure and some difficulties can unexpectedly  arise. Therefore, many IVF programs perform a ‘mock’ embryo transfer. It  is done prior to the treatment cycle to determine the most suitable  catheter and technique for actual embryo transfer.

In  the middle of your cycle, your doctor will do a mock embryo transfer.  It is a trial of the actual embryo transfer. The actual embryo transfer  requires taking the embryos into a catheter and then transferring them  to the uterus via the cervix. This procedure is more complicated than it  appears. It’s not enough to just drop those tiny embryos anywhere  inside the uterus. There is an ideal area in your uterus where they  should be accurately placed.

Mock  Embryo Transfer is the Pre–Embryo–Transfer Procedure, and the Actual  Embryo Transfer Occurs in This Way…The Miracle for Your Tiny Sparkling  Embryo (or More Than One Tiny Sparkle…) Starts from being taken out from  the Petri Dish and Placed in the Private, Premium–Level “Shuttle”  (Catheter)! Three, two, one… GO! Imagine! Drive Through! Launch!

The  embryo will appear inside your uterus via the catheter. Your tiny  scared embryo–lady or embryo–dude is taken out of the Petri–dish and  waits for a ‘BIG TRANSFER’. If it is the time to replace this small  embryo–bundle from the tube inside your uterus, it is placed inside a  flexible catheter. The procedure of Embryo Transfer takes only several  minutes. It takes all of three minutes to insert a weird kind of  catheter, get it to where it needs to be, accurately place your little  embryo inside your uterus, and that is all. YES, and it has to ‘LEARN’  so many things inside. It wonders: ‘Where am I?’ ‘What has happened?’  ‘Everything is pulsating around me…’ ‘Should I curl up here or there?’  ‘Oh, it is better on the left side?’ ‘I am scared. I will just cuddle up  to that warm place and sleep there.’ 

If You Have at Least ONE Perfect Embryo, Don’t Burst Into Tears! This ONE Tiny Embryo Loves You and Is Waiting for You!

Most  of the embryos may stop their development... Yes, this may happen… And  you will feel anger, anxiety, confusion, or even despair. You will feel  like a bundle of nerves. You will burst into tears. And you shouldn’t  feel this way. If you have at least ONE perfect embryo, don’t burst into  tears! This ONE Tiny Sparkling Embryo Loves you and is waiting for you!

Even  if 6 of your oocytes were fertilized correctly, you know the odds of  all 6 of them making it to day 5, may slim to none. If you are lucky,  you will have one, and if you are super lucky, you will end up with 2 or  3 of them. Two or three perfect embryos would have meant the chance  that maybe; just maybe, one of them would grow to full term. The  responsible Embryologist closely monitors the development of the tiny  embryos. If the embryos continue their development, then the embryo  transfer may be prescheduled. BUT there is still one BUT… If you will be  too nervous, the embryo transfer may be cancelled. Give this tiny one  embryo the chance. Do not play the scenario ‘It took so long’.

Chromosome Abnormalities Are Excluded!

The  great challenge for Reproductive Endocrinologists is to correctly  identify the most viable embryos and prioritize them for further  transfer to the uterus. Especially it should be done in cases when it is  vital to exclude the embryos with chromosome abnormalities. And there  is a GREAT OPTION for this.

Preimplantation  genetic screening (PGS) is currently applied to evaluate the presence  of aneuploidies in embryos of couples at risk of occurrence the  chromosome abnormalities, for example, advanced maternal age, recurrent  miscarriage, recurrent IVF failure or severe male factor.

If  your doctor insists on this procedure, do not say ‘NO’. First glance  through two next lines. Embryos are prone to chromosomal abnormalities.  The consequences of chromosomal abnormalities could cause miscarriage  (early pregnancy loss) or severe chromosomal diseases. Have they changed  your mind about preimplantation genetic screening?

You Will Decide How Many Embryos Should Be Transferred and What Should Be Done with Those That Are Left

Surely  this decision will be based on your doctor’s recommendations. Before  the time of the actual embryo transfer, your doctor will review the  fertilization results and the development of the embryos. A decision  will be made regarding the number of embryos that will be transferred.  You will have to sign the papers before the embryo transfer. The  questions in these papers vary from clinic to clinic, but there are  three most important which remain the same. How many embryos should be  transferred? What should be done with those embryos that left? Will you  undergo the embryo reduction procedure in case of multiple pregnancy? Or  will you try to save all those tiny ones?

You  can ask to transfer two, three or even more embryos. But you should  understand the risks which will follow your decision. Increasing the  number of embryos transferred will increase the chances of pregnancy.  But it will also increase the risk of a multiple pregnancy (twins,  triplets, etc.). Remaining embryos that are not transferred will be  accurately examined. If they are of suitable quality, they may be  frozen, stored and transferred in the future. Alternatively, these  ‘extra’ embryos can be discarded.

Sexual Differentiation Occurs Before Fertilization! 

Thrilled  by this news? Yes, the gender is PREDETERMINED. Inspired and nervous?  Yes, it can be even chosen. During the embryo development, sexual differentiation occursBEFORE FERTILIZATION. It is determined by the genetic material contributed by the sperm of the baby’s father.

The  father’s genes are responsible for the baby’s gender. Sperm cells  [spermatozoa] carry either X or Y sex chromosomes. Every spermatozoon  [every father’s sperm cell] carries either X or Y sex chromosome. Given  that mother’s cells [oocytes] always have an X sex chromosome, two  chromosome variations are possible:

If the father’s spermatozoon carries an X–chromosome the embryo–baby will be ‘XX’ –– an embryo–lady [a girl].

If the father’s spermatozoon carries a Y–chromosome the embryo–baby will be ‘XY’ –– an embryo–dude [a boy].

Gender  Selection is Possible! You may choose ‘an embryo–girl’, ‘an  embryo–boy’, two embryos (‘an embryo–girl and an embryo–boy’, or two  ‘embryo–girls’, two ‘embryo–boys’): Your Dreams Come True! 

Wondering  is it possible to have the embryo–baby with the desired gender? YES, it  is possible! If you would love to choose the gender of your future baby  or babies, you have this option. These embryo–babies will be  exclusively ‘designed’ for you! If you do want to have ‘an embryo–girl’,  ‘an embryo–boy’, two embryos (‘an embryo–girl and an embryo–boy’, or  two ‘embryo–girls’, two ‘embryo–boys’, or three ‘embryo–girls’, or two  ‘embryo–girls’ and one ‘embryo–boy’, IT IS POSSIBLE!

Amused  by these facts? What may be done by the reproductive specialists to  ‘DESIGN’ the embryo–baby’s gender? They must know which chromosomes  prevail in the sperm. If the sperm sample will contain mostly ‘X’  chromosome spermatozoa, a tiny gorgeous embryo–lady will be waiting for  you. If the sperm sample will contain mostly ‘Y’ chromosome spermatozoa,  a tiny handsome embryo–dude will be warmly welcomed. And if you want  more tiny embryos with the desired gender…They will be cute and  beautiful, just make a wish–list ‘WHO’ they should be. Caught the hidden  idea?

And if the ICSI  (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) technique is chosen for  fertilization, that means that the ONE single spermatozoon will be  INJECTED inside the oocyte. So…They just need the utter accuracy to  choose that ONE spermatozoon and to inject it inside the oocyte. And the  divine ‘embryo–[insert your version]’ anticipates the ‘romantic date’  with you!

OR… the other  intimidating option – to produce the embryos and to ‘glance inside’  their GENETIC CODE to find the one which suits your desires. The  technique which is used is called PGD (preimplantation genetic  diagnosis). They screen the entire genomes of the embryos for the  desired characteristics.

Multiples  Are So Common (Getting Pregnant with Twins, Triplets, or Even More Tiny  Bundles is so Common)! Dreaming About Having Twins? Wondering About  Tiny Sparkling Triplets? It IS Possible!

Twins,  triplets, or YAY…That also may happen, quadruplets, quintuplets,  sextuplets, septuplets, octuplets… Fetuses of all shapes and sizes are  everywhere! At present, multifetal pregnancies are closely associated  with infertility treatment. And (IVF) is responsible for multifetal  pregnancies and adverse neonatal outcomes. IVF treatment cycle is  designed to stimulate excess follicles and transfer excess embryos to  achieve pregnancy. So?

If two or more  perfect tiny embryos were transferred into your uterus, you may expect  the multiple. But sometimes spontaneous twinning/tripling occurs from  fertilization of two separate oocytes [dizygotic twinning] or from a  single fertilized oocyte that subsequently divides into two identical  structures [monozygotic twinning]. So… it may happen! If there  are no limitations according to your doctor’s recommendations and you  are dreaming about Two Tiny Sparkling Bundles, surely, you will hold  them in your hands soon! A little bit patience here!

Extra–Embryos or Extra–Fetuses MAY VANISH… This is one of the Greatest Embryo–Mysteries!

Worrying  about having triplet after IVF? Multiple embryo implantation can’t  guarantee that absolutely all embryos would develop normally into  fetuses. On the contrary, discovering more than one gestational sac  before the eighth week should not be considered as definitive because  vanishing embryo phenomenon may occur.

Interested  and nervous? You shouldn’t feel this way because spontaneous vanishing  mainly occurs between 8 and 9 weeks of gestation. Vanishing embryo is a  phenomenon, which occurs before the ninth gestational week. The  intricacy of this phenomenon can be shown through the percentage:  between 10% and 20% of viable twin fetuses disappear. And not only twins  are in danger. Embryo vanishing phenomenon was defined as the  spontaneous loss of one or more embryos after identifying their heart  activity via external ultrasound.

Where  do the embryos VANISH? The scientists don’t know yet. They just have  some tips what to do. Accurate early ultrasound monitoring is highly  recommended to precisely identify the occurrence of a vanished embryo  and the time when the vanishing occurred. We do hope that in the nearest  future they will REVEAL this Vanishing MYSTERY.
