Ssmile provides a number of options for fertility preservation. These fertility preservation options differ for males and females.
The fertility preservation options for males are Sperm cryopreservation, a process in which, a male has to provide samples of his semen. These semen samples are then frozen and stored for use in future for a medical process called cryopreservation.
Gonadal shielding is yet another option for fertility preservation. Fertility can be harmed by radiation treatment for cancer and other difficult conditions, particularly if it is used in the pelvic region. Modern techniques are used in some radiation treatments in order to aim the rays on a particular area. The lead shield can also be used to provide protection to the testicles.
The ssmile hospital Maharashra, India is availed with the best possible treatments and solutions for these issues.
The fertility preservation options for females include Embryo cryopreservation also known as embryo freezing, a method most commonly used and successful alternative for female fertility preservation.
Firstly with our medical services the eggs from the ovaries are removed. Further, these eggs are then fertilized with sperm from her partner or a donor in our laboratory at Ssmile by means of In Vitro Fertilization. This leads to a formulation of embryos, which are then frozen and stored for future use.
Oocyte cryopreservation is yet another option for fertility preservation in females and is similar to embryo cryopreservation, but in this process, unfertilized eggs are frozen and stored too.
Gonadal shielding is a process similar to gonadal shielding for males and is used for females too. Necessary steps are taken, such as targeting rays in a specific area or covering the pelvic region with a lead shield, in order to provide protection to the ovaries from radiation.
An ovarian transposition is also an option for fertility preservation in females.
Under medical services and best of Fertility Specialist doctors, a minor surgery is done to move the ovaries and the sometimes even the fallopian tubes from the particular area that will receive radiation to an area that will not receive radiation.
Some of these fertility preservation options, like sperm, oocyte, and embryo cryopreservation, are possibly available only for males and females who have gone through the puberty period and thus have mature sperms and eggs. However, fertility preservation options like gonadal shielding and ovarian transposition can be utilized to preserve fertility in children who have not been through the period of puberty.
