Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Prof. Dr. Yücel Karaman stated that this system, which is both time-saving and financially more advantageous, increases the chance of pregnancy and explained the questions about the golden egg method.
The importance of the number of eggs in the treatment
Ovarian reserve is the capacity of the ovaries to produce egg cells, the ability to be fertilized. Eggs obtained from patients with reduced ovarian reserve show structural and genetic problems and adversely affect egg quality. The most important factor is age. There are serious differences between the egg quality of a young patient and an older person.
Stating that the number of eggs and therefore the number of embryos during IVF treatments are the most important factors that increase success, Prof.Dr. Yücel Karaman said, “This is why we used the methods we call the embryo pool for our patients whose reserves are low. However, in this patient group where time is very important, it is possible to reach the maximum number of embryos quickly with the accelerated pool system, which we call dual stimulation.
Who is the golden egg treatment applied to?
While 8-10 eggs can be collected from expectant mothers in their 20s and 30s, this number drops to 1-2 for expectant mothers in their 40s, creating a risky situation.
-Pregnant (young) mothers with problems in ovarian reserve and quality
In some cases, although the woman is young, fewer eggs are found compared to her peers. In these cases, it is emphasized that the factor causing the reserve shortage may have also reduced the quality.
-Mother-to-be with recurrent pregnancy loss
How is the golden egg method applied?
prof. Dr. Yücel Karaman, about the golden egg method, said, “In short, more eggs are collected from the mother-to-be with the Golden Egg application, unlike other in vitro fertilization methods. The chance of pregnancy increases with the selection of healthy and best quality eggs,” and listed the application steps as follows:
– Eggs are collected from the expectant mother twice in one menstrual cycle. At the beginning of menstruation, with a 10-day treatment, eggs are collected and these eggs are frozen. 3-4 days after egg collection, drug treatment is applied with the same method once again and collection is done for new eggs that are formed.
-Genetic test is applied to 4-5 eggs that are in the best condition from the eggs obtained in this way. Especially in women over the age of 40, it is very likely that 1 out of 2 eggs transferred is genetically defective. In this case, the chance of conception decreases or the pregnancy results in miscarriage.
-Genetic diagnostic test is applied to prevent this and to eliminate defective eggs. Thanks to drug stimulation in one menstrual cycle, more eggs are obtained and the chance to choose the healthiest and best quality egg among them is provided. Thus, a high and healthy pregnancy chance is achieved.
