IVF or In-Vitro-Fertilisation came into existence in 1978 with the first successful birth of a child after IVF treatment, Louise Brown. IVF since its inception has become the most effective treatment for many forms of infertility. The main goal of IVF is to allow a patient the opportunity to become pregnant using her own eggs or donor eggs and sperm from her partner or from a donor. IVF allows happiness and gives hope to countless couples in India.
IVF can help you get pregnant if you have problems with ovulation or egg quality, blocked fallopian tubes, or endometriosis; if your partner has problems with sperm count or motility; or if you’re using donor eggs to become pregnant.
How long will IVF take?
It takes about four to six weeks to complete one cycle of IVF. It will take around 12 to 15 days for the eggs to mature. Then you and your partner spend about half a day at your doctor’s office or clinic having your eggs retrieved and fertilized. You have to go back again three to five days later to have the embryos inserted into your uterus, but you’ll be able to go home that same day.
The IVF treatment cycle
• Medications to grow multiple eggs
• Retrieval of eggs from the ovary or ovaries
• Insemination of eggs with sperm
• Culture of any resulting fertilized eggs (embryos)
• Placement (“transfer”) of one or more embryo(s) into the uterus
• Support of the uterine lining with hormones to permit and sustain pregnancy
Benefits of IVF:
• Giving parenthood.
• IVF works where other infertility treatments fail to do.
