What is IVF?

IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) is a widely used fertility treatment where eggs are retrieved from the woman's ovaries, fertilised with sperm in a laboratory, and resulting embryos are then transferred back into the woman's uterus. It is a complex and highly effective assisted reproductive technology that can help individuals or couples overcome various fertility issues.

Who needs IVF?

IVF is recommended for individuals or couples who face challenges such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count or quality, endometriosis, or unexplained infertility. It can also be an option for individuals or couples who have undergone other fertility treatments without success.

What is the IVF procedure like?

The IVF procedure typically involves several steps. First, the woman undergoes ovarian stimulation with medication to produce multiple eggs. These eggs are then retrieved through a minor surgical procedure. Meanwhile, the male partner provides a semen sample or donor sperm for fertilisation.

In the laboratory, the eggs and sperm are combined to allow fertilisation to occur. The resulting embryos are monitored for development, and after a few days, one or more embryos are transferred to the woman's uterus. Any additional viable embryos can be cryopreserved for future use.

Following the embryo transfer, the woman may undergo a period of rest and then return for a follow-up appointment to monitor the success of the procedure through blood tests or ultrasound examinations. Successful implantation of the embryo(s) may result in a pregnancy.

 

It is important to note that the specifics of the IVF procedure can vary depending on individual circumstances and the protocols used by fertility clinics. Healthcare providers work closely with individuals or couples undergoing IVF to tailor the treatment plan to their specific needs and maximise the chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
