IN VITRO MATURATION

Postby riogirl71 » Sun Mar 29, 2009 11:25 pm

Has anyone heard or have had any experience with this?

Immature eggs are harvested from the ovary and matured in the test tube before being fertilised in the usual way.

IVM is a useful procedure for two groups of women: those who are fertile, with normal cycles, who don't need stimulating hormones to help them to become pregnant, but who are undergoing IVF because their partners have impaired sperm; and for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome[1] who are at an increased risk of developing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome[2] during IVF hormone treatment

Hi kerpupples, yes I do want to have another shot at it and I fall in the male infertility category.
It sounds quite promising, it is cheaper and no stimms! Some clinics in the US already offer it. THe UK and Canada for sure. WOuld love to find out more...
It also matures the eggs that now are discarded for being immature when stimmed.

Babies born as the result of one of the newer forms of fertility treatment grow into healthy children, researchers claim.

In vitro maturation (IVM) is a relatively new form of fertility treatment and concerns about its safety are still rife, including suggestions that it could damage the eggs and lead to babies being born with abnormalities. However, findings from a small study in Denmark appear to show that it’s safe and that children grow up without any negative effects. The centre in Denmark has so far used IVM to produce 33 babies – 16 girls and 17 boys – who are now aged between two and four years old.

IVM PA is believed to be particularly useful for women who aren’t able to cope with the high drug doses required in IVF to produce large numbers of mature eggs. Instead immature eggs are harvested from the ovaries and then matured in test tubes before being fertilised in the usual way.

Dr. Anne Lis Mikkelson, who led the study, said, “The children are aged between two and four years now, and are achieving higher than average scores in their developmental tests – this is probably the result of the exceptional motivation of their parents.”

She added that, “More children have to be born by this method before we can reach any definitive conclusion, however, these results indicate that the IVM method seems to be safe.”
