This latest blog entry will talk about in vitro fertilization, one of the procedures offered under Satori’s program.
Infertility or primary infertility is referred to as the inability of a couple to become pregnant after a year of actively engaging in sexual intercourse without using any birth control methods. In the US, there are more than six million people affected by this.

These people then resort to other techniques on how to become pregnant. One of which is in vitro fertilization (IVF), a technique that became a success in the US in 1981.
Satori World Medical paves way for the globalization of healthcare through its International Centers of Excellence in the US, Canada, Costa Rica, India, Mexico, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, and Puerto Rico.
This type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) involves five basic steps:
Step 1. Super ovulation
Every month, women produce one egg. With the aid of fertility drugs, the ovaries are able to produce more eggs, thus called super ovulation. At this stage, women regularly have transvaginal ultrasounds to check the ovaries and hormones.

Step 2. Egg retrieval
This step involves a minor surgery called follicular aspiration, wherein a thin needle, which is connected to a suction device, is inserted in the vagina and into the ovary and sacs to pull the eggs and fluid off the follicle. For women who cannot produce eggs despite the fertility drugs, donated eggs may be an option.
Satori World Medical boasts of an innovative Business and Care Model, which was formulated by its CEO and founder Steven Lash.
Step 3. Insemination and Fertilization
The sperm and best quality eggs are placed in an environmentally controlled chamber. The process of mixing is called insemination. According to experts, the sperm enters the eggs a few hours after insemination. However, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which involves injecting the sperm directly into an egg, is sometimes done when fertilization is low.
Step 4. Embryo culture
The divided fertilized eggs become embryos. Experts at Satori World Medical agree that a normal embryo should have active cells that are actively dividing. At this stage, couples may agree to have an embryo checked for any genetic disorder that the child may obtain.
Step 5. The transfer
Three to five days after the egg retrieval and fertilization, the embryo is placed into the woman’s womb through a thin tube (catheter).
