Why are pregnancy rates with donor egg IVF so low in India?

Older women with poor ovarian reserve are often told to use donor eggs, because getting eggs from a young, healthy, fertile egg donor will increase their chances of getting pregnant.This makes sense - provided they get a sufficient number of good quality eggs from the egg donor.But the trouble is that most Indian IVF clinics don't have good donor egg programs. They super ovulate fresh egg donors, and then end up splitting these precious eggs amongst lots of recipients, whom they put on a waiting list.This often means that they cannot synchronize the egg collection of the donor with the endometrial receptive of the recipient, which is why a lot of these cycles fail.Then these patients are pushed into doing surrogacy, because they're told, "If you can't get pregnant with your own eggs, and with donor eggs, then your only choice is surrogacy."This is really tragic, because these patients are getting a raw deal !What they need to do is to go a good IVF clinic, which uses frozen eggs , and can guarantee them that they will receive at least 10 top quality frozen eggs for their treatment.The pregnancy rate with frozen eggs is better than with fresh eggs, because we don't have to worry about synchronising cycles - we thaw the frozen donor eggs only when the recipient's endometrium is ready.Also, when we thaw these eggs, the survival rate is 100%, which means these frozen eggs turn into top quality fresh blastocysts, with a high implantation rate !You can read more abou...

Background: HIV-exposed-uninfected (HEU) infants have increased infectious morbidity and mortality; little is known about their levels of inflammation and monocyte activation. Methods: Plasma samples obtained at birth and 6 months from 86 HEU mother–infant pairs enrolled in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development cohorts in Brazil were compared with 88 HIV-unexposed mother–infant pairs. HIV-infected mothers received antiretroviral therapy during pregnancy, their infants received zidovudine prophylaxis and were not breastfed. IL-6, soluble TNFα receptor I (sTNF-RI) and II, soluble...

The people who become doctors all over the globe, specialize in a different field. You may see some plastic surgeons, some gynecologists, some obstetricians but not all the doctors are the same. The obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in pregnancy, childbirth, and a woman’s reproductive system as a whole, and that too all at once. He is not just a person who is good at one of the previously mentioned areas, but he has majored in all of them. An obstetrician is actually supposed to take care of their patients and their babies throughout the time of pregnancy. These are the doctors that give you follow-up care&nbs...

Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Sherin Jacob, Thangarajan SumathiAbstractThe neurotoxic environmental contaminant, methylmercury (MeHg), has shown to have detrimental effects on the developing brain when exposed during gestation. We have shown in our earlier studies that gestational administration of 3,3′,4′,7-Tetrahydroxyflavone or Fisetin reduces the toxic effects of MeHg in the developing rat brain. The current study has pivoted to study the mechanism behind the mitigating action of Fisetin against prenatal MeHg exposure induced neurotoxicity....
