DIFFERENCES BETWEEN VACCINATION AND IVFadmin
Due to the fact that women postpone the age of marriage and motherhood, the need for assisted reproductive techniques has increased in recent years. When it comes to assisted reproductive techniques, we think of vaccination and IVF treatment.
Vaccination is the preferred method in case of infertility, especially in male-related infertility, and is the default method as a stage of IVF. In the infertility treatment processes of couples, the factors that cause infertility are first taken into consideration. Various factors such as deformations in testicular functions that can occur in men and anomalies in sperm channels can cause infertility.
WHAT İS VACCİNATİON? WHO İS İT APPLİED TO?
Vaccination is the process of delivering sperm into the uterus. In vaccination, the man gives sperm through masturbation and these sperms are subjected to some processes and the quality ones are selected. The selected good quality sperms are given with the help of a thin catheter to the uterine cavity, which is the closest distance to the tubes where fertilization will occur.
The vaccination process is not a painful process. Normal gynecological examination is performed in the position. Since the catheter used in vaccination is very thin, the patient does not feel pain.
The sperm given meet the cracked egg in the tubes. If the sperm is able to fertilize the egg in a healthy way, the embryo is formed. Then this embryo goes to the uterus and attaches to the uterus (implantation) and pregnancy occurs.
Vaccination therapy is carried out in the following cases:
Inability to conceive despite 1 year of unprotected and regular intercourse
Those with unexplained infertility
Those who have ejaculation problems
It can be applied to those with a decrease in sperm count and motility
WHAT İS IVF? WHO İS İT APPLİED TO?
IVF is the process of fertilizing the eggs taken from the woman with the sperm taken from the man in the laboratory environment. While the aim of natural cycles or vaccination is the development of 1-2 eggs, the aim of IVF treatment is to develop a large number of eggs with medication.
THE DİFFERENCE BETWEEN VACCİNATİON AND IVF
Vaccination is not in vitro fertilization. Both are assisted reproductive techniques used to treat infertility, and there are some differences between them.
One of the most important differences between the vaccination method and IVF treatment is the number of eggs developed. Both vaccination and IVF treatment are started menstrually.
Both use egg-enhancing drugs. However, the drug dose used in vaccination treatment is much lower than in vitro fertilization treatment. Because while the aim of vaccination is to develop 1-2 eggs, the aim of IVF treatment is to develop between 8-10 eggs. This is the most important difference between vaccination and IVF.
There is also a difference between the vaccination method and the IVF method in terms of application. The sperms selected in the vaccination themselves go and fertilize the egg. Eggs are not taken out. Fertilization occurs on its own in the woman’s tubes. However, in IVF treatment, mature eggs are collected and taken out. These collected eggs are fertilized with sperm in the laboratory. In other words, the fertilization process does not happen on its own, it is done by the embryologist by microinjection (ICSI) method.
Another difference between vaccination and IVF is that; The egg, which is fertilized in the tubes by the sperm in vaccination, goes to the uterus after 3-5 days and attaches to the uterus. In the IVF method, the embryo created by microinjection method is 3-5. It is transferred to the uterus per day.
