What every patient needs to know about their sperm, eggs and embryos: This is a guest post from Dr Sai , the head embryologist at Malpani Infertility Clinic.
I am an embryologist - one of the scientists who makes your embryos from your eggs and sperms in the IVF lab. In many clinics, the embryologists are tucked away in the IVF lab, which is why most infertile couples don’t have a clue as to what we do and how we do it. At Malpani Infertility Clinic, I routinely show our patients their embryos in the IVF lab. It’s much easier for them to understand what we do in the IVF Lab when they know the basic biology of sperm, eggs and embryos. Here’s a basic Reproductive Biology 101 course you should review before going in for IVF treatment."
