Hyderabad, 26th July 2018: Eight years into their marriage ‘Rekha’ and ‘Vishesh’ had been trying to conceive for last five years. After several attempts to conceive, the couple decided to undergo fertility treatment.

 

‘Vishesh’ had a severe case of male factor infertility with very high abnormal sperms, which caused repeated failure of IVI and ICSI treatment. The couple decided to undergo the ICSI treatment one last time and use the Magnetic Activated Cell Sorting (MACS) technology. ‘Rekha’ finally conceived and is in her 3rd month of happy pregnancy.

 

On the occasion of World Embryology Day on 25th July, Dr Hima Deepthi, Fertility Consultant at Nova IVI Fertility, Hyderabad said, “It has been 40 years since the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown on 25th July 1978. Since then, the advancements in medical sciences have consistently helped millions of childless couples worldwide.”

 

Around 10-15% of married couples in India are unable to conceive naturally. At least 40% of these are male infertility cases. “. Changing lifestyles, stressful work schedules, and rising levels of obesity are among the several factors leading to a drastic rise in infertility cases in Hyderabad,” adds Dr. Deepthi.

 

Magnetic Activated Cell Sorting (MACS) involves magnetic separation, by an embryologist, of healthy sperms from apoptotic ones, that are near death. This results in increased fertilisation, implantation, and pregnancy rates. During the process, healthy sperm cells are selectively retained in a separation column.

 

With poor quality sperms being one of the major causes of male infertility, modern technology allows fertility specialists to choose the best and healthiest sperm for the process of ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection), thereby increasing the chances of pregnancy. So far, MACS has helped over 250 couples in Hyderabad to achieve pregnancy.
