Credence IVF is Trivandrum’s leading IVF clinic and one of the top rated infertility and reproductive medicine centers in Kerala, India. It is a part of Trivandrum’s premiere family hospital, Credence Hospital, which is also the first multi-speciality hospital in Kerala with a special focus on women’s health. Credence IVF, which started it’s operations in 2001, has maintained consistent success rates and international quality standards, making it possible for thousands of infertile couples from across the world to take home healthy babies. Since 2001, Credence IVF has helped innumerable couples achieve parenthood with the latest infertility treatments including Test Tube Baby Facilities and Embryo Freezing by Vitrification. The team, led by Dr. Santhamma Mathew MD, DGO, has many firsts to their credit, including the first baby conceived and delivered through Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA) combined with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) technique in South Kerala in a 42-year-old lady, and also the first baby in South Kerala born using Frozen Embryo. Over the years, over 30000 couples have been successfully treated at Credence IVF using methods ranging from just medications and Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), and frozen embryo transfer. The team has also pioneered in infertility treatment using Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopy and hysteroscopy) Fertility Surgeries, with many women conceiving normally after surgery alone, without the need for IVF treatment. The team led by Dr Bimal John has completed over 10,000 procedures already, and the Department is the leading laparoscopic surgery unit in Trivandrum.

In Vitro Fertilisation - IVF
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) refers to the process by which fertilization of the egg by sperm occurs outside the body. IVF is a prominent treatment for infertility and is recommended when other techniques of assisted reproductive technology have failed to produce the desired results. The process involves various steps that include comprehensive monitoring of a woman's ovulatory cycle, removal of ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the ovaries and allowing the sperm to fertilise them in a fluid medium in a lab.

In Natural cycle IVF, a woman's ovulatory cycle is continuously monitored to collect a naturally selected ovum (egg) for the process of fertilisation. Then, the fertilised egg (zygote) is transferred to the uterus of the patient to achieve a successful pregnancy.

Intrauterine Insemination - IUI
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is the process by which semen is deliberately introduced into the vagina or oviduct of a female for the purpose of fertilisation by certain methods other than ejaculation. IUI is a widely recommended medical alternative to sexual intercourse, or natural insemination.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection - ICSI
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) refers to an In Vitro Fertilization procedure in which a single sperm is directly injected into an egg. This process is commonly used to combat male infertility problems. However, this procedure may also be used in certain cases where the sperm cannot easily penetrate the eggs, and sometimes, in addition to sperm donation.

Embryo Freezing
Embryo freezing is the process by which an embryo is preserved at sub-zero temperatures, ideally at an embryogenesis stage that corresponds to pre-implantation, that is, from the phase of fertilisation to the blastocyst stage. Embryo freezing is suitable for leftover embryos after a cycle of In Vitro Fertilisation. This is because patients who have failed to conceive have greater chances of becoming pregnant using such embryos without having to go through a complete IVF cycle. Or, in case, the pregnancy has already occurred, they could later opt for another pregnancy using such embryos.
Assisted Hatching
Before an embryo attaches itself to the wall of the womb, it has to break out or, in other words, ‘hatch’ from its outer layer known as the ‘Zona pellucida.’ Creating a hole in the outer layer or thinning it may allow embryos to ‘hatch’, thus enhancing the chances of the woman to become pregnant in certain cases. However, it is to be noted that assisted hatching does not augment the quality of embryos.

Oocyte Donation
Oocyte donation refers to the process by which a woman provides either one or several (generally 10-15) eggs (Oocytes) for the purpose of assisted reproduction or biomedical research. Egg donation, for assisted reproduction, essentially involves the process of In Vitro Fertilisation or fertilization of eggs in the laboratory. Egg donation plays an integral role in the process of third party reproduction as part of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

Surrogacy refers to an arrangement or a practice in which a woman carries and delivers a child for an individual or another couple. This woman, often referred to as the surrogate mother, may be the child's genetic mother (known as Traditional surrogacy), or she may be genetically unrelated to the child (known as Gestational surrogacy).

Sperm & Egg Freezing
Sperm & Egg Freezing involves the process of preserving both sperm and egg at sub-zero temperatures for the purpose of assisted reproduction.

As fertility is known to decrease with age, freezing your eggs at an early reproductive age will ensure greater chances for a future pregnancy. Frozen eggs are generally stored at -196 degrees, Hence, the quality of the egg do not deteriorate with time. As chemotherapy/radiotherapy may cause infertility problems, Egg freezing is an appropriate option for women who suffer from potentially curable cancer. The egg freezing process essentially involves administering various injections in order to stimulate the ovaries for a period of 12 to 14 days. The eggs are then collected under sedation. The process of egg collection is a relatively non-invasive, and carries a reduced risk of bleeding.
