What is IVF-In Vitro Fertilization
In vitro fertilization (IVF)
IVF Process is the original ‘test-tube baby’ technique. IVF is the process of fertilizing eggs with sperm outside of the human body. These fertilized eggs (embryos) are then placed in the woman’s uterus, bypassing the fallopian tubes. IVF treatment has given hope to childless couples. However, the IVF success rate depends on the experience of IVF treatment specialists and the age of the patient.
When to Consider IVF Treatment?
Poor semen quality
Fallopian tube damage / obstruction
After introductory consultation with our fertility expert, the process begins with stimulating the ovaries from Day 2 or Day 3 of the menstrual cycle. In this step, scanning of follicles is done, and daily HCG injections are given for 10-12 days to the female partner to grow the follicles. Next, our fertility expert monitors the development of the follicles in the ovary using ultrasound and blood tests at regular intervals to control the size and quality of follicles.
Transvaginal Oocyte Retrieval
After 10-12 days of stimulation based on the growth, an injection (trigger) is given to assist in the final maturation of the eggs and loosen the egg from the walls of the follicle. After 34-36 hours of trigger injection, the egg retrieval process takes place with general anesthesia at the Zivia IVF center.
On the same day of egg retrieval, a fresh sperm sample is collected from the male partner following masturbation. If needed, sperm can be extracted from the testicles or epididymis using a separate procedure. The sperm sample is then processed, and the healthiest sperm is selected.
Once the eggs are retrieved, the fertilization process begins, where the mature eggs are placed in an incubator and fertilized with sperm within a couple of hours. Egg fertilization involves the observation of embryos until it reaches the blastocyst stage. Once the sperm fertilizes the egg, it becomes an embryo. Monitoring of the embryo is completed in 2 to 6 days.
After fertilization, the embryo development process starts. The Day 5-Day 6 stage from fertilization is called Blastocyst.
Once embryos are formed based on the quality and growth of the embryos, the best embryos are transferred into the uterus of the female partner using a small tube called a Catheter.
After the embryos are transferred into the uterus, our fertility experts prescribe medicine to enhance the chances of implantation. After the stipulated time, usually after the 14th day or 2 weeks, pregnancy tests are conducted by our fertility experts to check the result.
Here’s an example IVF journey, indicating the stages in the process and the likely number of visits to the Clinic.
