IVF Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure


Obstetrics and gynecologists are highly experienced at Pristyn Care Bangalore. There are a few diagnostic tests the gynecologist would recommend to find the root cause of infertility and to initiate the IVF treatment:

  • Blood tests
  • X-ray hysterosalpingogram
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
  • Hysteroscopy


  • Ovarian Stimulation– The first step to IVF is taking medications that can help your ovaries produce eggs ready for fertilization. Even if ovulation is regular, fertility drugs are used to produce more than a single egg because pregnancy rates are higher with more eggs.
  • Egg retrieval– Once the ovaries have produced enough eggs, the doctor will remove the eggs from your body. This process is known as egg retrieval. An ultrasound is done to visually guide a small needle through the vagina to one ovary and then to the other. This process is usually painless. The follicular fluids are gently extracted using a suction that carries the egg along with the fluid. This process takes 30-40 minutes. The number of eggs to be extracted depends upon multiple factors such as aging, response to ovarian stimulation, ovarian reserve, etc. Once eggs reach the lab, experts examine them to determine maturity and quality.
  • Fertilization– Mature eggs are transferred into a special culture medium, placed in an incubator and within a few hours of egg retrieval are fertilized with sperm. The eggs and sperm are stored together in a special container so that the sperm can fertilize the egg.
  • Embryo culture– The embryos are cultured in a petri dish and screened for any genetic disorders that may have passed from any of the partners.
  • Embryo transfer– About 3-5 days after the egg retrieval, one or more embryos are put into your uterus. This process is called embryo transfer. The doctor slides a thin tube through your cervix into your uterus and implants the embryo directly into your uterus through the tube.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will IVF be painful?

No, Pristyn Care specialists ensure that IVF is not painful for the patients, even during egg retrieval or embryo transfer. The female is generally sedated while carrying out the procedure. Even if pain can be felt, it is mild and bearable.

What are the chances of multiple pregnancies with IVF?

The chances of multiple pregnancies with IVF are slightly higher as multiple eggs are implanted in the embryo to increase the chances of successful pregnancy.

How many doctor visits are required during the IVF cycle?

Typically, patients have to visit the doctor 6-7 times during an IVF cycle, including 4-5 visits for stimulation injections and one visit for egg retrieval and embryo transfer respectively.

What is the right time to consult a doctor for infertility?

The overall IVF treatment doesn’t have any side effect on the patients. However, the female may experience effects like cramping, bloating, or spotting during the egg retrieval or embryo transfer process.

How many cycles will it take for successful conception?

It is possible for some patients to successfully conceive in the first IVF cycle. If the first attempt is not successful, then the patients usually have to go through 3-4 cycles to conceive without any complications.

What is the most important factor in determining the success rate of IVF?

The major factor that affects the success rate of IVF is age. With age, the reproductive health of both men and women decline which creates infertility issues. Along with age, there are other factors that affect the success rate of IVF, such as type of fertility issues, egg quality, embryo quality, uterine receptivity, lifestyle factors, etc.

Usually, one complete cycle of IVF takes around 1-3 weeks. However, the doctor may split these steps into different parts, which can take longer.

Can I consume alcohol during my IVF treatment?

No, you shouldn’t consume alcohol during the IVF treatment journey as it negatively impacts conception and implantation. It’s recommended for both partners to avoid alcohol during the entire IVF treatment journey.

How long does it take to get pregnant after IVF treatment?

One cycle of IVF treatment takes around two months. However, research suggests that women younger than 35 will get pregnant and have a baby with their first IVF egg retrieval and subsequent embryo transfer(s) about half the time.

Yes, you can use the donor egg or sperm as both are viable and you have undergone the appropriate procedures to prepare your uterus for transfer.

Do I need to have sufficient eggs during IVF treatment?

Yes, it’s essential to have sufficient eggs while you undergo the IVT treatment procedure, as there are chances that some eggs might not be mature enough to fertilize well normally. In addition, most eggs don’t turn into a live birth. Therefore, you may need to undergo another IVF cycle to get pregnant.

When to consult an IVF specialist

Following are the most common reasons to visit an IVF specialist:-

Things to keep in mind before the IVF treatment

  • Discuss with your doctor and try to understand the IVF treatment process.
  • In case of any questions, doubts, or clarity, talk to your chosen doctor.
  • Discuss your medical conditions with your doctor in detail.
  • Try to reduce stress as it directly impacts the hormones that are the core of the reproductive system. Also, stress is considered the primary cause of infertility in both men and women. To get rid of the stress, you can do meditation, listen to music, or do anything that makes you feel calm, happy, comfortable, and stress-free.
  • Achieve the right weight as it improves the chances of conception. You can add a high protein and low carbohydrate diet to lose weight and a high protein and high carbohydrate diet if you are on the lean side. Also, make sure that you avoid junk foods.
  • All forms of exercise are advised at this stage as it keeps you healthy and helps you get the right weight.
  • While smoking is a complete no for both men and women, drinking alcohol in moderation or not more than 60 ml twice a week is permitted. The doctor also suggests controlling the intake of carbonated drinks.
  • If you have any pre-existing ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, or cardiac problems, talk to your doctor about it before the IVF treatment starts.

Things to keep in mind during the IVF treatment

  • Follow your doctor’s instructions and take the required medications at the correct timings as prescribed. Also, be mentally prepared for the treatment as it requires around 4-5 visits to the hospital for scans and one-day admission.
  • Both the partners must have a healthy and balanced diet while the IVF cycle continues. During the treatment journey, ensure that you keep your body hydrated. Also, you should altogether avoid smoking, alcohol, and drugs suggested by your doctor.
  • While IVF treatment is going on, you shouldn’t bend or do any intensive cardio exercise. However, light walking is recommended, and yoga and meditation for mental health and keeping stress at bay.
  • Say no to sexual intercourse for the first ten days after completing the IVF cycle as it can potentially lead to medical complications and affect pregnancy.
  • Supplements that you started in the pre-IVF stage are continued during the process. However, if you or your partner take any medications for pre-existing medical conditions, you should inform your doctor about it as it can affect the IVF treatment process.

Things to keep in mind after IVF treatment

  • Watch out for red flags such as pain, burning sensation in urine, fever, or fullness of the abdomen.
  • Add fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, and sources of calcium and protein to your diet.
  • Avoid junk foods and cold drinks.
  • Drink lots of water and sugar drinks like coconut water to keep yourself hydrated.
  • Avoid any form of exercise for the first ten days after completing the IVF treatment cycles.
  • You can walk at a moderate speed for 10-15 minutes but ensure safety.
  • Avoid smoking cigarettes and consuming alcohol altogether. Even passive smoking can be harmful to the baby and woman. So make sure to keep a distance from the smoking zone.
  • Destress and get enough rest. Try to sleep and relax as much as possible. On average, a sleep of 7-8 hours is recommended. However, you can also take naps during the day to recharge yourself.
  • To lighten your mood and mental peacefulness, you can listen to music, do meditation, and practice a hobby.

Factors deciding the success rate of IVF treatment
