IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a procedure carried out in a laboratory where a female egg is fertilized manually with male sperm. After this, the embryo is introduced into the uterus. IVF is of great help to those couples who face fertility problems due to varied reasons. With each passing day, the success rate is increasing steadily. But, before seeking such assistance, you need to know and consider various factors.
Here is a list of few facts that you must know before opting for IVF.
What is IVF?
The very first thing you must know is that if you ever became pregnant in natural manners, then the chances of getting a positive result with IVF increases in your case. This is such a procedure which is beneficial to people with nearly all kinds of infertility complications. If you have such an infertility condition where fertility medications also proved to be unsuccessful, then you may choose IVF in that situation.
Eggs are first taken out from the ovary of a would-be mother and then fertilized outside before replacing it inside her womb. The treatment procedure is a bit lengthy. Before the collection of the egg, the woman needs to take prescribed medications and visit the clinic for check- ups or scans for a couple of weeks. The procedure of egg collection takes nearly an hour and after that, the patient must return to the clinic for the transfer of embryo and also pregnancy blood test. In total, the treatment takes approximately four to five weeks. Various shorter treatment forms are also available as well as other essential things that you must know before opting for IVF.
Are there any risks?
Many patients seeking fertility treatment from IVF generally have a misconception that the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer increases if this procedure is tried. But, you need not worry at all as IVF has no link with the increased risk of such diseases.
In many cases, it is seen that a couple possesses extra healthy embryo other than one. In that case, if the couple feels like, then they can donate the extra embryo to others. In conditions of male infertility, donated sperms are also used. A woman whose age is more than 45 usually has very fewer chances of becoming pregnant with her own egg, she may take the help of donor eggs.
You need not feel ashamed of infertility as it is a common phenomenon. With a success rate of 40%, many couples seek this procedure to get conceived. Besides infertile people, single women and same-sex couples also opt for this procedure. It means one in fifty babies is seeing the light of the Earth using IVF.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a condition that causes irregular menstrual periods because monthly ovulation is not occurring and levels of androgens (male hormones) in women are elevated. The condition occurs in about 5 to 10 percent of women. The elevated androgen levels can sometimes cause excessive facial hair growth, acne, and/or male-pattern scalp hair thinning. Most, but not all, women with pcos are overweight or obese, and they are at higher than average risk of developing diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea. For women with pcos who want to become pregnant, fertility pills or injections are often needed to help women ovulate.
Although pcos is not completely reversible, there are a number of treatments that can reduce or minimize bothersome symptoms. Most women with pcos are able to lead a normal life without significant complications.
Common signs and symptoms
Irregular menstrual periods menstrual disorders can include absent periods, periods that occur infrequently or too frequently, heavy periods, or unpredictable periods.
Infertility pcos is one of the most common causes of female infertility.
Obesity up to 80% of women with pcos are obese.
Excess hair growth on the face, chest, abdomen, or upper thighs this condition, called hirsutism, affects more than 70% of women with pcos.
Severe acne or acne that occurs after adolescence and does not respond to usual treatments
Patches of thickened, velvety, darkened skin called acanthosis nigricans
Multiple small cysts on the ovary
Are treatments available for women with pcos?
A variety of treatments are available to address the problems of pcos. Treatment is tailored to each woman according to symptoms, other health problems, and whether she wants to become pregnant.
Is there a cure?
Medical treatments aim to manage and reduce the symptoms or consequences of having pcos.
Medication alone has not been shown to be any better than healthy lifestyle changes (weight loss and exercise). Many women with pcos successfully manage their symptoms and long-term health risks without medical intervention.
They do this by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a condition which can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, fertility, hormones and aspects of her appearance but with proper medical care she can lead a healthy lifestyle.

What if a women carries a baby when it is found in a fallopian tube? Is there any problem with this to a women?
Bleeding in early pregnancy or during the first trimester may or may not be a serious reason for concern, depending on the cause. But because bleeding can sometimes be a sign of something serious, it's important to know the possible causes, and get checked out by your doctor to make sure you and your baby are healthy. About 20% women have some bleeding during first 12 weeks. The possible reasons are implantation bleeding, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, cervical changes and infection. So how do you deal with it? Here's a quick list.
- Hygiene: Ensure that hygiene is your first priority, especially during pregnancy.
- Light Bleeding: Light bleeding or spotting that is dull red or brown in colour is a normal occurrence for many pregnant women. This can point to the foetus getting lodged and pressing against your womb's lining, or even the cervical changes that you may be going through due to the implantation and impending trimesters and eventual delivery. The best thing to do in such cases is to not panic.
- Sex: Having sexual intercourse can also sometimes lead to mild spotting. Also, you should avoid using abrasive material and clothing during this time.
- Ultrasound: Go for an ultrasound and ensure that your pregnancy is normally placed and not ectopic. An ectopic pregnancy can lead to bleeding which can later become fatal. It may cause cramps in the lower abdomen region as well.
- Infection: Speak with your gynecologist and ensure that there is no risk of infection. Usually, many women suffer from infection (can be on cervix or vagina) during the early stages of pregnancy. This may give rise to spotting and mild bleeding. Take necessary actions and precautions to ensure that the infection does not get out of hand and is treated right away. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
