5 Step IVF Procedure!

5 Step IVF Procedure!

In Vitro Fertilization is the most common and effective way to help women to conceive. This method is a blessing for those couples who are not able to have children because of some medical issues. IVF has opened the doors of hope of such couples. IVF method is an artificial method of fertilizing egg outside the body in the laboratory and then implanting it in the uterus. This method is best when the other treatments have failed. The success rate of IVF is high and the chances of multiple birth is more. This method of conceiving is getting popular in many countries among childless couples. Studies have shown that one percent of the babies in United States are born through IVF. IVF is safe and economical. This method keeps on of the parent biologically connected to the child.


  1. Curbing the natural menstrual cycle: The women before undergoing this process is given injection for two to three weeks to supress her natural menstrual cycle.
  2. Super ovulation: To increase the production of eggs, fertility drugs containing the fertility hormone follicle stimulating hormone- FSH are given to the woman. This makes the ovaries to produce more eggs than usual. Regular ultrasound is done to examine the process of ovaries.
  3. Retrieving the eggs: The produced eggs are then collected through a minor surgical procedure known as follicular aspiration. In this surgery, a very thin needle is inserted into the ovary through vagina which is connected to a suction device. This device sucks the eggs out. This process is repeated for each ovary. Doctors try to collect 15 eggs in one cycle which can give high chances of successful pregnancy. These eggs can be frozen or donated too.
  4. Insemination and fertilizationThe collected eggs are then placed with sperms in a controlled environment chamber. Sperms enter the egg naturally and sometimes it is directly injected, called intracytoplasmic sperm injection. After this the fertilized egg is divided and becomes an embryo. After this doctors recommend to diagnose the embryo in order to check if it is healthy and not diagnosed with some genetic disease. This decision is totally on the parents though. The selected embryo is then transferred. Women is given progesterone, this help the lining of the womb to receive the embryo.
  5. Embryo Transfer: Generally, more than one embryo is placed in the womb. This is done on the mutual discussion of the doctors and the parents. The embryo is transfer with a thin tube or catheter. It enters the womb through vagina. Once the embryo is attached to the lining of the womb, the embryo starts growing and the rest development is parent’s responsibility by taking good care of the mother.

Artificial implantation techniques may differ clinic to clinic but the ultimate goal is to bring a baby in this world. IVF has become the best way for conception for the ladies who are not able to conceive and the birth success rate has made it more popular.

Hello, ideally you should get a withdrawal bleed between next 7-10 days post ipill intake but as I see that you have not bled, still you have not missed your menses though, so the best options shall be serum beta hcg test, which is a blood test and shall be sensitive after 7 days post intercourse to detect pregnancy based on levels of hcg hormone.

Its always better to go for barrier methods. One should never take any hormonal pills without recommendation of your doctor. U need to get urself fully evaluated by a gynaecologist before taking anything. Do not take any over the counter pills google is not everything.

Avoid allergic and gastric items. Take plenty of water. Take Tab. Pan-40 (daily morning on empty stomach) - 10 day' s. Tab. V. (put inside of vagina) for 10 days nights only. Then let me know.

I am turning 30 and married since last 3 yrs. I am suffering from pcos.I have irregular periods and I weigh around 89kg. Concern is that I am unable to conceive. Docs say I need to loose weight,which seems to be difficult for me due to my lifestyle. Can you tell how do I get my periods regular. Also if periods get regular will I conceive?

Homeopath, Kurnool
Once your periods get disturbed you cannot conceive. Hence you have to take special treatment for regularization for periods. Homeopathy is having best remedies, provided symptoms should match. Chat me in Lybrate private chat, I'll ask few relevant questions on body symptoms and find actually what happened . Then I can suggest you appropriate homeopathy medicine.

Dearlybrate-user, you may be suffering from urinary tract infection. Take homoeopathic can notharis 30, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach for 7 days. If your problem persists after 7 days of medication then you should inform me.
