Assisted reproduction is performed in tandem with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis for diagnosis of genetic diseases in early embryos prior to implantation and pregnancy. The primary goal is to prevent the transmission of genetic conditions that cause severe disease in children of parents that are either afflicted with the disease or are carriers. ACIBADEM Genetic Diagnosis Laboratory is a regionally renowned center, equipped with the most advanced technology and expertise.

PRP in In Vitro Fertilization

PRP therapy may increase ovarian capacity and reserve to help the In Vitro Fertilization therapy.Since it is not possible to turn the clock back for the mother, stem cell therapies and PRP practices enable women with ovarian aging and poor ovarian reserve and even early menopausal women to get pregnant with In Vitro Fertilization.

In conventional In Vitro Fertilization therapy, PRP has been used for more than 40 years and the novel practices ever increasingly enhance the success rate.The chance of getting pregnant (conception) is increased by the procedures that are performed to support the In Vitro Fertilization therapy.Studies on couples who have had IVF have reported that if the first attempt fails, far better outcomes can be obtained in following attempts.PRP is one of these additional procedures to support IVF and It can also increase the success rate. Considering PRP therapy in an In Vitro Fertilization protocol, blood is drawn from the mother and gone through specific processes to collect the platelet-rich plasma that is ultimately infused back to the mother.Many studies have been conducted to increase the success rate of In Vitro Fertilization and they demonstrated that the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from the blood of the mother, increases the success rate by promoting the thickening of the endometrium (the innermost lining of the womb) and increasing the quality of eggs.In other words, couples with low chance of conception gain an opportunity of having a baby.PRP therapy not only enables the endometrium to reach an appropriate thickness for pregnancy, but it also increases the quality of woman’s eggs.In this context, the chance of getting pregnant increases for the woman, as the quality of eggs is boosted and the endometrium achieves the intended thickening.

Ovarian rejuvenation with PRP

PRP treatment enables ovarian rejuvenation.If PRP therapy aims ovarian rejuvenation, ovaries of the mother are activated by injecting a platelet- or growth factor-rich blood product that is derived from the maternal blood.PRP is the abbreviation for “platelet rich plasma” and recently, it is a non-surgical treatment option for a wide range of diseases.PRP is widely used in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine to cure diseases of the musculoskeletal system, such as tendinitis, arthritis, sprain and rupture of ligaments and this treatment modality promotes natural healing mechanism and alleviates the pain by using blood sample of the person. Potential outcomes of PRP therapy include quick healing, rejuvenation and recovery at the intended body part.In treatment of infertility, PRP is used for ovarian rejuvenation and endometrial problems.Indeed, stem cells are the precursors of mature body cells and they can be transformed into any cell in the body, including egg, in response to an appropriate stimulating agent.These stem cells are present in ovaries as well.PRP is derived from blood of the person and it is a blood product that is rich in platelets that secrete growth factors.In this context, when PRP is injected into the ovaries, it stimulates stem cells to make them transform into eggs. Early menopausal women cannot get pregnant under normal circumstances.Every female baby is born with a certain number of eggs. Ovulation begins in adolescence and continues throughout the menstrual cycle every month. However, these living egg cells decrease due to exposure to some unhealthy conditions until menopause.Here, the word “decrease” means a decline in number of eggs and deactivation of eggs in the menopause rather than complete loss of eggs.Here, PRP therapy regenerates and reactivates these passive or deactivated eggs that are scarce in ovaries.In other words, since ovaries are rejuvenated by PRP, they become more suitable for reproduction.In this context, PRP may help rejuvenation of the ovaries.
