In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment that combines mature eggs and sperm outside the body to form embryos. The embryos are then transferred to the uterus, where they can implant and grow into healthy babies. IVF is a complex process, but it has helped millions of couples achieve their dream of parenthood.
At Yashoda IVF, we offer a personalized approach to IVF treatment. Our team of experienced fertility specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you. We will also provide you with support and guidance throughout the entire process.
Here is a step-by-step overview of the IVF process:
1. Ovarian stimulation:
The first step in IVF is to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. This is done using fertility medications, which are typically taken for 10-14 days.
2. Egg retrieval:
Once the eggs are mature, they are retrieved from the ovaries using a minor procedure. The procedure is performed under sedation and takes about 10-20 minutes.
3. Sperm collection:
On the same day as egg retrieval, the male partner will provide a semen sample. If the male partner is unable to produce sperm naturally, sperm can be retrieved from the testicles or epididymis using surgical procedures.
The eggs and sperm are combined in the laboratory to create embryos. Fertilization can occur naturally or with the help of a procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
5. Embryo culture:
The embryos are then cultured in the laboratory for 3-5 days. During this time, the embryos develop and divide.
6. Embryo transfer:
One or more embryos are then transferred to the uterus. The embryo transfer procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes.
7. Pregnancy test:
Two weeks after the embryo transfer, a pregnancy test is performed to see if the IVF treatment has been successful.
IVF success rates:
The success rates of IVF vary depending on a number of factors, including the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and the quality of the eggs and sperm. However, the overall success rate of IVF is between 60% to 80%.
