What is IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) ?

IVF is an abbreviation for in vitro fertilisation. It is one of the most well-known forms of assisted reproductive technology (ART). IVF works by combining medications and surgical techniques to assist sperm in fertilising an egg and the fertilised egg is implanting in the uterus.

To begin, take a medicine that causes multiple eggs to mature and become ready for fertilisation. The doctor then removes the eggs from the body and combines them with sperm in a lab to help the sperm in fertilising the eggs. Then they insert one or more fertilised eggs (embryos) into the uterus. Pregnancy occurs if any of the embryos implants in the uterine lining.

IVF can be used in a variety of ways, depending on your situation and preference :

  • your eggs and your partner’s sperm
  • your eggs and donor sperm
  • donor eggs and your partner’s sperm
  • donor eggs and donor sperm
  • donated embryos

Embryos can also be implanted in a surrogate, or gestational carrier, by your doctor. This is the woman who will carry your child for you.

IVF is a lengthy process with numerous phases that take many months to finish. It can succeed on the first attempt in some cases, but many individuals require more than one round of IVF to become pregnant. If you're suffering fertility issues, IVF will almost certainly increase your chances of getting pregnant, but there's no guarantee - everyone's body is different, and IVF won't work for everyone.

IVF is divided into the following five steps:

  • Stimulation: During each menstrual cycle, a woman normally produces one egg. IVF, on the other hand, requires the use of several eggs. The use of several eggs enhances the likelihood of producing a viable embryo. Fertility medications will be given to you to boost the number of eggs your body produces. During this period, your doctor will do frequent blood tests and ultrasounds to check egg production and determine when it is time to retrieve them.
  • Retrieval of eggs: Follicular aspiration is the term for egg retrieval. It's a surgical procedure that's done under anaesthesia. Your doctor will put a very tiny needle into the higher vaginal wall and retrieve fluid containing eggs from the follicles of the ovaries. Immediately after retrieval of the follicle(s), the egg is placed in a dish and transferred to an incubator.
  • Insemination: The male spouse will now be required to provide a sample of sperm. In a petri dish, a technician will combine the sperm with the eggs. If that fails to generate embryos, your doctor may opt for ICSI.
  • Embryo culture: Your doctor will monitor the fertilised eggs to make sure they're dividing and growing properly. At this point, the embryos may be tested for genetic disorders.
  • Transfer: Embryos can be implanted once they are large enough. Three to five days after conception, this happens. A tiny tube called a catheter is introduced into your vagina, through your cervix, and into your uterus during the procedure. The embryo is subsequently implanted into your uterus by your doctor. The embryo attaches itself to the uterine wall, resulting in pregnancy. This might take anywhere from 6 to 10 days. If you're pregnant, a blood test will reveal it.
