What is IVF?
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment in which sperm and eggs are combined in a laboratory to allow the sperm to fertilize an egg. In real world, IVF is the original test-tube baby technique.
If the fallopian tubes are damaged or the sperm is poor, infertility has continued for a long time, then In vitro fertilization may be a treatment option. IVF may also be an option if your doctor can’t point-out the your infertility problem or if other treatments have been unsuccessful.
How does IVF work?
Before and during the in vitro fertilization process, your fertility specialist will monitor your ovaries and the timing of the egg release. Eggs are retrieved by ultrasound guided needle aspiration under light sedation. During this step in the IVF process, pain medication is given to reduce any discomfort. Doctor will examine your eggs before combining them with your partner’s sperm. Then, the sperm and egg are placed in an incubator and monitored to make sure that a healthy embryo develops. The embryologist selects the most viable embryo or embryos to place in your uterus three to five days after the egg retrieval. The final step of the IVF process is the embryo transfer. Embryos are placed in your uterus through small plastic tube placed through the cervix into the uterine cavity. After the IVF process is complete, bed rest is often advised for around 24 hours. You can take a pregnancy test about two weeks after the embryos are placed in your uterus.
