Beating infertility using genetics – a boon for couples undergoing IVF

It was 8 years ago that Mr. and Mrs. Kashyap got married and since then they have been trying to have a baby but numerous visits to supreme doctors and even trying various home remedies as suggested by their family members and friends, all turned out to be futile in bringing their little one home.

Enter IVF and Genecorp

Just when they were about to lose all hope, Mr. Kashyap’s colleague told him about In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Genecorp. IVF is the most common form of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

If a couple is unable to reproduce, it can be attributed to the following two causes (there are many more but the following are main):
In Female: when her fallopian tubes are damaged and so the sperm is unable to travel to the ovary.
In Male: When his sperm count is low.

So, what is IVF?

Simply said, IVF is a procedure for couples who are unable to reproduce. The eggs are fertilized in a laboratory, and the resulting embryos are then placed into the uterus for 2 to 5 days. This procedure achieves remarkable pregnancies in women who suffer from severely damaged fallopian tubes, men who cannot produce offspring, and even “unexplained” infertility.

Genecorp is a Mumbai based start-up that conducts DNA analysis listing preventive healthcare measures and recommends lifestyle and dietary changes. The reason that traditional methods and medication does not always work for everyone is because each human being is unique and a one-size-fits-all approach is not suitable as genes play a major role in one’s physical development.

WHY choose Genecorp?

Genetic testing plays a crucial role in informing the parents about the success of their IVF attempt. If the mother is incompetent to carry a baby for 9 months then IVF will be a complete failure. Now, researchers at Cornell University in New York have identified specific genetic variations that lower a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant through IVF. They suggest that women who choose IVF could one day undergo genetic tests that would help predict the procedures chances of success, and help direct treatment. Genecorp helps the parents in getting their gene mapped and knowing precisely about any altered or variant gene, which may be directly or indirectly responsible for the whole process of giving birth, or getting pregnant.

Eating a Fertility Enhancing Diet

Like we prepare the soil for a healthy plant similarly, it is essential that we prepare the mother’s womb so that it can carry a healthy embryo inside.

Nutrition is the foundation of healthy fertility and pregnancy. It includes foods, which are dense in specific nutrients needed for hormonal function, production & balance, fetal development, egg health, sperm health, blood health and much more. Genecorp plans the mother’s diet in a way that it naturally increases the chances of a successful IVF. This diet is planned before process of IVF commences.

Benefits of a fertility enhancing diet

• Provides antioxidants, multivitamins and minerals, which help to protect egg and sperm health from damages.
• Supports the body towards normal hormonal balance by providing the fats needed for hormone production and function.
• Helps to provide important nutrients for early pregnancy.

Researchers have found that a low nutritious or unhealthy diet in woman leads to low success rate of IVF. Genetic alterations and hormonal imbalances lead to IVF failures. Some bombs only get activated when you are pregnant. Issues like gestational diabetes and high blood pressure are the most common concerns. IVF is one of an additional factor that can cause hypertension during pregnancy, so it crucial that a mother keeps a tab on her blood pressure while undergoing IVF. Genecorp helps you know if you are at a higher risk of hypertension and gestational diabetes by testing the genes responsible for their onset.

Why is Genecorp different?

Genecorp, a healthcare company, is working day and night for the advancement of the society. It is not just a company but a drive which informs and encourages people to be careful about their lifestyle and dietary choices that target and eliminate several health issues.
