Dr Vyjayanthi has worked with Prof Adam Balen, a world authority on PCOS and Mr Rutherford who is a founder member of British Fertility Society while pursuing her Clinical Fellowship in Reproductive Medicine at Leeds both of whom are leading figures in Infertility in UK.

She did her Masters in Clinical Embryology in Leeds University under the supervision of Prof Helen Picton whose research interests are on human oocyte and embryo development. Dr Vyjayanthi has worked on cellular and molecular markers of oocyte quality as her project during her Masters Programme at Leeds and has done a lot of research in this field and has several publications to her credit. Although a clinician, she chose to do Masters in Embryology to get an in depth understanding of embryology which places her at an advantage in counselling couples and guiding them in the right direction.

She further worked as sub-speciality Fellow at St Bartholomew’s Centre for Reproductive Medicine in London for 2 years and has accreditation with RCOG as Sub Specialist in Reproductive Medicine which is essential to work as a Director of IVF unit in UK. She worked with Ms Tozer and Mr Al Shawaf a pioneer in ovarian stimulation and coasting protocols and fertility preservation which helped her further enrich her experience in this field.

Dr Vyjayanthi has also successfully completed the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and British Fertility Society certified ‘special skills module’ in Assisted Reproduction, Management of Infertile Couple, Advanced Hysteroscopic  Surgery and Transvaginal Ultrasound.

She has been practising Infertility exclusively since 2003 and well experienced in all the aspects of reproductive medicine. She is an expert in the management of PCOS, Poor ovarian reserve, Coasting protocols, Recurrent miscarriage, Recurrent Implantation Failure and Fertility Preservation to name a few.

Dr Vyjayanthi worked on  “Cellular and Molecular Markers of Oocyte Quality” under the supervision of Dr Helen Picton, Professor and Head of Division for Reproduction & Early development, Leeds University, UK. The aim of the study was to determine whether any significant differences in the amino acid turnover exist between developmentally competent and arrested oocytes on in vitro maturation (IVM) over a period of 24 hours. A further aim was to determine whether any significant differences exist between oocytes obtained from PCOS and non PCOS patients. Oocytes, which progressed in vitro to MII, exhibited amino acid patterns different from those, which arrested. Oocytes from PCOS patients showed a different amino acid turnover as opposed to non-PCOS patients. The data suggested a link between amino acid metabolism and oocyte quality.

She has also been involved in the following Research projects in the Reproductive Medicine unit in Leeds:

  • Birth weight study– an observational study to investigate whether the birth weight of women affects their response to stimulation during IVF treatment.
  • A phase 2 randomised trial to investigate the dose-response relationship of a single injection of long acting FSH to initiate multiple follicular growth in IVF cycles.
  • A prospective randomised study comparing Nourish (preconception conditioning programme) with placebo in couples undergoing IVF treatment
  • RCT of Menopur versus Gonal-F in the management of anovulatory infertility.
  • A prospective randomised study of the optimal timing for the administration of HCG in women undergoing IVF in a GnRH antagonist cycle.
  • Guide for THESIS -DNB students –Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Ltd.
  • Dr Amita Kasar-Anti Mullerian Hormone as a predictive marker of ovarian response in IVF.
  • Dr Vasundhara Devi-Management of tubal ectopic pregnancy in tertiary health care centre.
  • Jaideep Khare-Endocrinology-Study of metabolic, hormonal profile and fertility outcome in patients with PCOS needing fertility treatment.
