What is IVF

Basic Guide to the Process, Benefits, and Considerations of IVF

In Vitro Fertilisation is the life changing breakthrough technology that has bloomed the lives of millions of couples across the world since 45 years.

25th July 1978, the day when first test tube baby Louise Brown was born with great efforts from Patrick Steptoe & Robert Edwards.

Since then the treatment has evolutionised and the results have increased many fold by advancements in the treatment modalities & technologies.

We have accepted, adopted and implemented latest technology, latest instruments and latest skills to reach the stage with highest success rates in IVF treatment.

For couples who have unable to conceive naturally, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is the perfect assisted reproductive technology. By combining sperm and eggs in a petri dish within a meticulously regulated and sterilised environment, the in vitro fertilization (IVF) technique emulates natural fertilisation. One or more embryos are then delivered to the uterus for implantation once fertilization has taken place.

Who Is Best Suited for IVF?

When all previous options, including ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI), have failed, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is sometimes seen as a last resort. It could be suggested as a first-line treatment for couples with certain types of infertility. Some situations where IVF is most appropriate are:

  • Infertility through tubal shedding : a situation in which the fallopian tubes are nonexistent or obstructed, preventing sperm from accessing the egg or fertilized eggs from entering the uterus
  • compromised function of the sperm : issues with the motility, morphology, or production of sperm
  • Syndrome of polycystic ovarian cysts : a hormonal condition that interferes with ovulation and raises the possibility of miscarriage
  • Intestinal endometriosis : a disorder that results in adhesions and scarring when uterine tissue grows outside the uterus
  • abnormal cycles of menstruation : Ovulatory dysfunction reduces the likelihood of pregnancy by causing irregular ovulation and weakened eggs.
  • Using a surrogate : The transfer of the embryo to the surrogate's uterus requires IVF if a gestational carrier is chosen.

What Are the Steps of IVF?

The seven steps that IVF typically takes are listed below.

  • Step 1. Ovulation Induction : First, ovarian follicle maturation is encouraged by the use of fertility drugs. To make sure the follicles are reacting as best they can, the fertility specialist will be regularly monitoring hormone levels and ovarian development during this period.
  • Step 2. Egg Collection : The process of collecting eggs is simple and is done under anesthesia. To extract eggs from developed follicles, a tiny needle is inserted into the vagina.
  • Step 3. Fertilisation : Several embryos are created by fusing eggs and sperm together after they have been harvested. PGS, PGD, and ICSI are examples of other technologies that may or may not be used in this process.
  • Step 4. Embryo Development : Four to five days are given to embryos to develop until they reach the blastocyst stage. After that, they receive a quality and integrity rating.
  • Step 5. Embryo Transfer : The embryo is placed to the uterus for implantation when it is four or five days old and has developed into a blastocyst. Your leftover embryos can be cryopreserved for later use.
  • Step 6. Pregnancy : Judgment day, which occurs two weeks following your embryo transfer, is when you ultimately find out if your treatment was successful. Should that be the case, a small celebration is in order. It was time for an ultrasound screening to look for a heartbeat two weeks later.
  • Step 7. Follow-Ups : After a successful IVF round, routine follow-ups are advised to rule out any potential issues. You can utilize this time to schedule doctor's appointments and get ready for the exciting months to come!
