Uses of Intralipid Therapy done by best Infertility Specialist

Our blood is composed of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. From these components white blood cells acts as a protector against foreign bodies that enter the body. This invasive mechanism is helpful in many ways. But in some cases these natural killer cells may increase in count during pregnancy period and consider the embryo as a foreign body. The natural killer cells act against the embryo and prevent the implantation of the embryo in the uterus (implantation failure). Some antibodies that are produced within the body also act against the implantation of the embryo and result in pregnancy failure.

The hegde infertility clinics in Hyderabad, uses the Intralipid therapy to overcome the damage caused by these factors. The intralipids can suppress the over activated natural killer cells, thereby increasing the chances of maintaining the pregnancy. This therapy is widely used in females who have a medical history of implantation failures, multiple miscarriages, and failed two or more IVF cycles.

Intralipids is a mixture of fatty acids and are administered intravenously at an interval of 3-4 hours. They have a suppressing action on components that act against the pregnancy.
