What is IVF ?

IVF stands for in vitro fertilization. It’s one of the more widely known types of assisted reproductive technology (ART). IVF works by using a combination of medicines and surgical procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg outside the body in the laboratory. The fertilised egg – embryo is transferred into the women’s uterus. IVF has many steps, and it takes several months to complete the whole process. It sometimes works on the first try, but many people need more than 1 round of IVF to get pregnant. IVF definitely increases your chances of pregnancy if you’re having fertility problems.

Steps in IVF –

  • Ovarian stimulation – In a natural menstrual cycle, women produce a single egg. In an IVF cycle, medication or hormones are used to stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs. During the stimulation process, patient is monitored with serial ultrasound examinations and hormonal blood test.
  • Egg collection (oocyte retrieval) – It is a minor surgical procedure done under mild sedation. Using a thin needle through the upper vaginal wall under ultrasound guidance, follicular fluid, which contains the eggs, is aspirated. Immediately after retrieval, the egg is placed in a dish and transferred to an incubator.
  • Fertilisation – Sperm sample is collected from the male partner and added to the eggs retrieved. Sometimes, the sperm is injected into the egg directly under high definition microscope. This is called intra cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The development of embryo in the IVF lab is monitored.
  • Embryo transfer – Three to five days after egg retrieval, embryos are transferred – it is called fresh embryo transfer. A thin tube is placed through the cervix into the uterus, and the embryos are directly transferred into the uterus. Remaining embryos are kept frozen, which can be used later.

Plan on resting for the rest of the day after your embryo transfer. You can go back to your normal activities the next day. You will be advised to take pills or get daily injections of a hormone called progesterone for the first 8-10 weeks after the embryo transfer. The hormones make it easier for the embryo to survive in the uterus. Pregnancy happens if any of the embryos attach to the lining of your uterus. A pregnancy test is done two weeks after embryo transfer.
