If you’re considering IVF, you probably may have many questions about how it works.
IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, is a fertility treatment that involves retrieving eggs from a woman’s ovaries and fertilising them with sperm in a laboratory. The eggs are fertilised through an advanced lab process and allowed to develop into embryos in incubators in an environment replicating the human body. The resulting embryos are then transferred to the woman’s uterus, where they hopefully implant and grow into a healthy pregnancy
Medications cause the ovaries to develop multiple follicles, which are closely monitored by ultrasounds and hormone levels.
As soon as the eggs are mature, they are removed with an ultrasound-guided needle, which is inserted through the vaginal wall under mild anaesthesia.
In our IVF facility, the eggs are fertilised via intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI, utilising the partner’s sperm or, if necessary, donor sperm.
Fertilised embryos are closely monitored as they develop in our lab.
To provide comprehensive information about each embryo’s chromosomal balance and genetic health, PGS and PGD testing can be done at this stage of IVF.
Hormones are taken to prepare the uterine lining for embryo implantation.
The most fertile embryos are transferred through a thin catheter through the cervix, and the rest are frozen (cryopreserved).
As soon as the woman receives a positive pregnancy test, she continues to take hormones for several weeks to maintain the pregnancy.
IVF can be an effective fertility treatment for various conditions, including endometriosis, PCOS, and male factor infertility. It can also be used to help couples with unexplained infertility.
IVF can be used to bypass tubal factor infertility and achieve a successful pregnancy without the need for surgery.
Medications will enhance the chance of a successful pregnancy during the IVF cycle.
Increase your chances of conception with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) during IVF if you suffer from male factor infertility.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with good morphological blastocyst transfer, genetic testing and frozen embryo transfer after meticulously screening the uterus can significantly lower the risk of miscarriage and increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
People who intend to delay their family planning due to personal reasons or are undergoing any cancer treatment can choose to preserve their fertility via gametes/embryos freezing by IVF.
When you have a history of genetic disorders, IVF with preimplantation genetic screening can help you become pregnant by reducing the chance of passing the genetic abnormality to offspring.
IVF treatment, however, is not restricted to only these types of patients. For more information, schedule a consultation today.
