The Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis(PGD) & Pre-implantation genetic screening(PGS) is done using the latest technology called as The Next Generation Screening. With the help of this technology the Sex selection for family balancing is done. There are 3 types of protocol for the PGD-NGS-IVF cycle for family balancing. The patient can choose any of the below mentioned protocols.
With well-planned scheduling, the patient need to spend about 21 days in Dubai to complete a Conventional- PGD-NGS-IVF treatment cycle with a Blastocyst Transfer on Day 5 (where Day 0 is day of Egg Retrieval) in the stimulated cycle and after the embryo transfer, the patient can fly back home.
If the patient takes the first part of the treatment in their country (This includes the ovarian stimulation from Day 1-Day 11 of your stimulation cycle), then they will need to stay for a maximum of 7 nights in Dubai. For this the patient will need to be under supervision of a Gynecologist well versed with transvaginal follicular studies who will work in cooperation with the team in Dubai for monitoring their ovarian stimulation.
Depending on the patient’s ovarian response (IN CASE OF HYPER-RESPONSE OR LOW AMH) - the ACCU-VIT protocol may be suggested, which necessarily mandates coming to Dubai twice to complete the treatment cycle; first time only for twelve nights (STARTING FROM DAY 2 OF THE PERIOD). The first visit in the stimulation cycle only includes egg retrieval. In cases with low AMH, the egg retrieval cycle is run more than once to collect the requisite number of oocytes/embryos. The eggs and the husband’s sperms are then vitrified (frozen).
In a subsequent month when the ovaries are back to normal size, the patient’s endometrium is prepared with a course of estrogen and progesterone tablets and the patient then comes in only for one day to receive the Embryo Transfer.
There are no additional costs to the patient /couple for this two-step treatment protocol. This is only advocated to help you get pregnant in the shortest possible time with the highest pregnancy rates.
Segmented IVF where the patient couple needs to come only for One Night to Dubai for Egg Retrieval & One Night for Embryo Transfer in a subsequent month. For this minimal-stay option the IVF doctor here in Dubai will coordinate with any Gynecologist in patient’s home city. This Gynecologist should be well versed with transvaginal follicular studies who will work in cooperation with the team in Dubai for monitoring the patient’s ovarian stimulation and endometrial preparation. Over the last year, most patients from overseas use this option for their treatment cycles. The digital platform WhatsApp is used for patient monitoring in their home city and the Patient WhatsApp Group includes the Patient couple, Their Gynecologist in the home city and the IVF team here in Dubai to monitor and facilitate the treatment.
All WhatsApp patient groups will be formed by the lead IVF doctor and will be monitored under their supervision. This is to ensure complete transparency in the treatment process and keep all the concerned parties well informed about the progress. This digital platform also helps avoid any sort of long-distance miss-communication.
There are no additional costs to the patient /couple for this two-step treatment protocol. This is only advocated to help them get pregnant in the shortest possible time with the highest pregnancy rates.
