Debunked Myths About IVF and You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

Debunked Myths About IVF and You Should Stop Believing Right Now!

In vitro fertilization or IVF is deemed as one of the wonder treatments for couples who are facing infertility issues. Whether it is due to poor sperm quality of blocked fallopian tubes, IVF has proven to be a safe and effective solution. However, like with all new techniques, IVF also has some myths which need to be understood before signing up for the procedure. With so much at stake in terms of finances and time, understanding the process will help set realistic expectations and improve the success rate of IVF.

Myth 1: High success rate. While IVF has very high success rates, some women just fail to get pregnant. This could be about 5% of the women and may not be attributable to any particular cause. Each woman responds differently, and failure to conceive through IVF could be due to no explainable cause. What is interesting is that though the first attempt failed, subsequent attempts may be successful. Failing the first cycle does not mean failure in subsequent cycles. Also, success rate differs from clinic to clinic, and so choose one which has a proven track record and good success rates. It should not just have good doctors but also the essential technology and infrastructure to support the IVF technique.

Myth #2: IVF leads to multiple births. While achieving multiple births is easier through IVF, it always does not lead to multiple births. Multiple embryos are implanted, only to improve the chances of success. It does not necessarily translate into multiple births. In women over 38 years of age, it is mandatory to only transfer a single embryo as multiple births are very likely to be complicated.

Myth #3: Rest and time off work. It is believed that IVF has a higher success rate with proper rest and time off work. Rest is definitely required the first few days after embryo transplant but it definitely later assumes a normal course of things. It is not that too much time off work is required, just because you had an IVF. Your body might be different and require more rest, but that could have been the case even with a normal pregnancy.

Myth #4: The medications with IVF are going to have lots of side effects. While the hormones given to promote egg release do have their side effects of making you feel moody and emotional, it is only transient. Once the egg release happens, fertilization is done, and embryo transplant is done, then things should settle down. The effects should wear down once the embryo is implanted and then things should settle down. Of course, pregnancy brings its own hormonal changes, which will run their course through pregnancy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How to Prepare Yourself for IVF?

How to Prepare Yourself for IVF?

Infertility is known to usher a lot of emotional stress in the lives of those who go through it. Often, an overwhelming sense of grief descends upon the couple who try to grapple with the sense of loss. The social and psychological ambience plays a very important role in reconciling one with the harsh reality and prepping one up for a fresh start. 

While IVF has proven to be a boon in the lives of many couples, many still take to IVF as the last resort. Another factor that makes the responses about IVF rather ambiguous is the uncertainty of the results. There are numerous factors like failure in embryo attachment or uterine incompatibility that often results in a failed IVF. Therefore, before opting for this surgery, one must be mindful of the consequences. 

Some of the ways, one can prepare oneself for IVF have been enlisted below: 

  1. Informed choice: Considering IVF is a rather stressful surgery, one needs to be well aware of the stakes. Reading up about the potential risks and the details about the process, helps one to be prepared for the consequences and deal better with the trauma.
  2. Take good care of your intimate relationships: Since IVF tends to take a toll on not just the mother, but also the close family, it is important to maintain a strong bond of trust and compassion in the course of the surgery. Hostility and discordance adds on the stress and sometimes inflict grave health implications upon the mother. It is important to support your partner through the entire journey. You may consider professional counselling too.
  3. Prepare yourself for all possible situations: While the advanced technology aims to minimize any hazard, the results can often be unpredictable. You might want to adequately monitor your cycle in order to anticipate the potential problem areas and the results thereof. You should discuss these with your loved ones to avert excessive stress. It is a good idea to keep oneself productively busy in the due course to avoid anxiety. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear sir, Marriage completed 5 years We both all reports are normal but she didn't conceive a single time, Please guide.
Dear lybrate-user, If all your reports are normal then classify into a category called unexplained infertility. Please meet a fertility specialist. You should undergo ovarian stimulation with IUI cycle. Regards.

Dear, Food and activity has no role to play in your case. Medicines are effective in 95% cases. In 5% these fail and you might have to undergo surgical evacuation. But dont worry. Just keep regular follow ups with your doctor.

Dear lybrate-user, Semen can travel inside vagina without rupturing of hymen also as there is a small opening there and pregnancy can happen if you have ejaculated outside also. So be careful Regards.

Hello Blood investigations are recommended on the very first visit unless you have got it done just before pregnancy. Visits are generally once in a month but much depends upon the course of pregnancy and any complications Hope this helps.
