Test tube baby, also known as in vitro fertilization embryo transfer, is a baby that uses artificial fertilization of eggs and sperm in vitro, carries out initial embryonic development outside the uterus, and then transfers it to the uterus for pregnancy. Compared with normal pregnancy, the environment of sperm egg combination has changed, and the place of pregnancy is still in the womb. So, what items do test tube baby need to check?
Before test tube baby, both men and women should have a project examination. Women have a wide variety of examination items, including B-ultrasound, blood routine examination, urine routine examination, liver function, coagulation function, thyroid disease, infectious diseases, chest X-ray, electrocardiogram, ultrasound, etc. These tests are mainly to screen whether the mother is suitable for test tubes and whether it has the conditions for pregnancy. If problems are found in these items, pregnancy should be postponed, and the mother should be effectively conditioned, and the test tube can be carried out after these inspection items return to the normal level.
Male examination is much simpler. It is mainly to check the quality of male sperm, and then check the chromosome to see if there is any disease on the chromosome, and if there is any infectious disease in men. If both men and women have some special conditions, such as genetic diseases, if any, accurate genetic testing is needed to determine whether there are conditions and environments for embryo. Check these to ensure that the child is normal after birth and has no physical defects.
