As the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spreads around the world it is important for the patients to know how this virus is going to affect their infertility treatments and to the ones who are desiring to get pregnant. Currently, very little is known about the impact of COVID-19 on reproduction and pregnancy. There are reports of women who have tested positive for COVID-19 delivering babies free of the disease.
For the patients who are currently undergoing their treatment in the fresh cycle, their embryos should be frozen rather than new ones being transferred and once the situation is settled then naturally or by medication a Frozen Embryo Transfer cycle can be undertaken.
1.Suspension of the initiation of the new treatment cycle
2.Cancellation of embryo transformation
3. Suspend elective surgeries and non-urgent diagnostic procedures.
4. Minimize in-person interactions and increase the utilization of telehealth.
Nonetheless, patients who have high chances of having COVID-19 (fever and/or cough, shortness of breath, and either exposure within 6 feet of a confirmed COVID-19 patient and within 14 days of onset of symptoms, or a positive COVID-19 test result), should strive to avoid pregnancy at this stage. If these patients are undergoing active infertility treatment, we suggest that they consider freezing all oocytes or embryos and avoid an embryo transfer until they are disease-free.
Along with others in the medical community, the reproductive medical professionals are battling unprecedented viral pandemic. The guidance mentioned only serves as a guideline keeping in mind the current scenario of the world. The recommendations laid out are guided by COVID-19’s steep daily rise in incidence, the impact of the virus on patient health and fertility care providers, and the known and unknown impact of coronavirus on fertility, pregnancy, and transmission. These are to ensure the health and safety of the patients and providers. Also, to abide by the social responsibility and guidelines laid out for national security during such unprecedented time.
However, we also value and understand the patients’ time-sensitive aspiration to achieve a pregnancy and that’s why we reassess the recommendations with the hope to soon resume our comprehensive fertility care.
2. Management Of The Embryology And Andrology Laboratories-
A critical component of modern infertility therapy is the embryologists, andrologists, and their laboratories.
3. Psychological Health And Well-Being Of Patients And Staff-
Patients may suffer through several psychological concerns like anxiety and questions, patients’ concerns include cancellation of treatment cycles, fear of running out of time to achieve pregnancy, and the potential impact of coronavirus and COVID-19 on pregnancy. The following are some steps taken by us to tackle such distress.
