Treatment

Diagnosis

The IVF specialist will conduct a complete diagnosis process to detect the cause of infertility in both partners. The OB-GYN will ask about your medical history and current medication if you are taking any. There are a few diagnostic tests the IVF specialist will recommend to assess the complexity before starting the IVF cycle:

  • Ovarian reserve assessment
  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)
  • Saline Infusion Sonohystereogram (SIS)
  • Semen analysis
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Follicular dynamic ultrasound

Procedure

IVF treatment is one of the most effective procedures to achieve fruitful results. The success rate is higher compared to other techniques. The process takes about a month or so to reach the last step of the treatment. IVF procedure is done in a proper sequential method which involves several steps-

  • Ovarian Stimulation- The first step to IVF is to take medications that can help your ovaries produce eggs that are ready for fertilization. Even if ovulation is normal, 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 infertility specialist 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 expecting fertilization to occur.
  • 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, 1 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.

Pregnancy happens if any of the embryos attach to the lining of your uterus.

Dr. Janani Manoharan

15 Years Experience

" The most common fear among my patients is- 'Are IVF babies healthy?'" Well yes, absolutely! An IVF baby is as healthy as any other naturally conceived child. Millions of babies have birthed since the first IVF and there are no recorded long term difference in their health/ immunity. The method only differs them based on their way of conception and not health. Infact, the quality of your baby's health depends directly on the quality of you and your partner's eggs, your diet, gestation period, and your physical and mental health throughout the pregnancy. As long as these factors are in place and you manage your stress pointers, your baby's health will be absolutely perfect!"
