In recent times IVF has become a popular and well-known. However, many parents are still unclear about the process. The process includes following steps.
Suppression of the Natural Cycle
The treatment requires considerable control on your natural menstrual cycle. This is needed to ensure that the production and maturation of eggs occurs at a definite time so that the entire procedure is scheduled and predictable. For that reason, you would be given medication through injections to suppress your natural cycle.
You will also have to take fertility drugs which contain fertility hormones or follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). These drugs helps in super ovulation that is, production of more eggs than normal. This process is monitored by ultrasound scans.
Extraction of the Eggs
Whether you are ready for extraction of eggs or not is determined by the help of results of ultrasound. Once the readiness id ascertained, the eggs are retrieved by the process of follicular aspiration. It is a minor surgical process in which the surgeon uses extremely tiny needles. These needles are inserted to the ovary through vagina and suck the eggs out.
In-Vitro Fertilization of Eggs
The extracted eggs are placed with the same sperm in a very controlled environment in the laboratory. The sperm can also be injected directly into the egg of required. Generally the fertilization takes place in few hours. Multiple cycles may be needed. Frozen eggs and sperms are used for the consecutive cycles.
Transferring the Embryo
Progesterone is given to the mother to help the womb lining to receive the embryo better. The embryo transfer is conducted using a thin tube inserted through the vagina. It sticks to the lining and healthy growth begins.
The success rate of IVF has increased over the years. The development of advanced technologies and treatment methods has helped in achieving way better results. However, the success rate of the IVF treatment depends on several factors.
- Age of the woman
- Causes of infertility and the duration you have been trying to conceive

- Treatment strategy chosen by your doctor
IVF is a delicate process. Constant monitoring and utmost care is needed to prevent complications. Some risks associated with IVF are the following.
Side-Effects of Medicines
Some woman may face side-effects of the medications like nausea, breathing difficulty, abdominal pain, etc.
Risk to Mothers Health
In rare cases the ovaries may over-respond to the FSH and develop too many eggs. This can put the mother’s health at risk. You may have to restart the process with lower FSH doses.
Loss of Pregnancy
This happens majorly because of abnormal number of chromosomes (aneuploidy). Detection before carrying out IVF can reduce the risk to a great extent.
Pregnancy with Multiples
It often happens when more than one embryo are placed into the mother’s body. Your doctors generally advice single embryo transfer when the chance of twins are high.
