Dr. Pai’s career began with his graduation from the most prestigious medical college in Mumbai, G.S. Medical College, with three distinctions followed by 2 gold medals in his M.D. In 1989, he went on a clinical fellowship to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, where the world’s second test-tube baby was born. Mastering the technique in a year, he returned to Mumbai and set up his first IVF center in 1991.

IVF - In Vitro fertilisation
High technology to assist parenthood
In the In Vitro procedure, the eggs are extracted from the ovaries and combined with sperm in a laboratory dish
Egg Donation
Pregnancy through donated eggs
Egg donation involves the voluntary, consensual giving of egg by a woman called as a donor.
ICSI - Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection
A boon for aspiring fathers with very low sperm counts
Very ofter, the Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection is part of the IVF procedure.
Surrogacy  is a variation of egg donation, where the "egg donor" is the patient herself, while the "recipient" is the surrogate, (gestational carrier) who will provide the embryos with a uterus to develop in.

Success Rates

Our pregnancy success rates are consistently high ( 30% to 50 % ) for women less than 35 years of age & ( 25% to 30%) for women more than 35 years of age.

Our live baby rate is 35% to 40 %. We have a massive experience of more than 20000 art cycles and a phenomenal pregnancy rates

 In comparing success rates, many factors contribute to a clinic's results. These factors include the range of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) offered by the clinic and the criteria for allowing treatment. A clinic's success rate may vary from year-to-year with the introduction of new reproductive technologies. However, the more cycles a clinic carries out, the less the rate is likely to vary.

Some clinics see more patients with difficult infertility problems, even though the probability of achieving success is low. Other clinics discourage such patients and only treat those with a high probability of achieving a pregnancy. At Bloom IVF we treat all patients, even those who have been unsuccessful elsewhere.

Will my ivf be successful?

Bloom IVF Specialist will advise you as to your specific treatment options, and will also explain to you your chances of success, taking into consideration your type of infertility, your age and your treatment. ART procedures have progressed rapidly since their development and so have the associated success rates, but generalised success rates can be misleading due to the individuality of each patient's situation. There are many hurdles to cross during treatment and it is wise to keep in mind that they all have to be successfully crossed to get to what we are all striving for - a baby to take home.

It is better to be well prepared than to have to deal with unexpected events during this important, and sometimes-difficult stage of your lives.

Success rates can be affected by many factors, including:

•  Genetic factors

•  Fertility history

•  Age of the female partner 

•  Conditions contributing to infertility

•  Quality of eggs and number of eggs recovered 

•  Quality of sperm (including motility and ability to penetrate the egg) 

•  Quality control in the laboratories; and 

•  Skill and competence of the treatment team

Although ART offers important options for the treatment of fertility problems, the decision to use ART involves many factors in addition to success rates. Going through repeated ART cycles requires substantial commitments of time, effort, money, and emotional energy. Therefore, you should carefully examine all related financial, psychological and medical issues, before beginning treatment.

The Age Factor

The age of the female partner is the most significant factor in treatment cycle success.
In a stimulated IVF treatment cycle, injections of FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) are used to stimulate follicular growth and the development of eggs. As female age increases, the average number of follicles (eggs) produced decreases and treatment may be cancelled if the follicle number is not suitable. 

The pregnancy rates for patients having routine treatment for IVF decreases quite significantly from around 35 years of age.

Elective Single Embryo Transfer

More people are electing to have one embryo transferred to minimize their risk of a twin pregnancy. One in three of these patients get pregnant from these cycles and when subsequent frozen cycles are accounted for, the take home baby rate reaches over 50%.

Frozen Embryo Transfers

Recent advances in embryo freezing have enabled a substantial improvement in success rates. This includes improved embryo survival at thawing and an increase in the clinical pregnancy rate. These enhancements have allowed us to transfer single thawed embryos without compromising the pregnancy rates.
