IVF Treatment- A boon for your desire of becoming parents

Growing number of fertility clinics in Delhi has made IVF a household name. IVF is best suited to the couples who are unable to have a child through other methods, such as fertility drugs, artificial insemination, and surgery. In 1991, in north India, the first IVF baby was born at IVF Gangaram.

IVF means in-vitro fertilization. It is different than what usually happens in artificial insemination. In IVF the eggs and sperms are combined outside the body and all this takes place in a lab dish. Once it grows into an embryo or multiple embryos, it is transplanted into the uterus. IVF is a complex procedure and involves a great deal of care.

Infertility causes

There are multiple reasons that may cause infertility, as explained by a fertility doctor in Delhi. Couples who are unable to have a baby, even after trying for more than a year, are considered infertile. Usually, IVF is the last resort to have a baby, when all the other tried methods have failed. In such cases, both the partners have to go through certain tests. IVF treatment can be an option when the couple is diagnosed with following conditions:

· Low sperm count

· Complications with the functioning of uterus or fallopian tubes

· Endometriosis

· Problems with ovulation

· Presence of an antibody that may harm sperm or eggs

· Unexplained fertility problem

· The inability of sperm to penetrate or survive

The process of IVF:

o Ovulation induction: The first step, for the couples seeking the fertility treatment at the fertility clinic in Delhi, is ovulation induction. Injections or medicines are given to induce the process. The fertility specialist then performs an ultrasound, to analyze if the eggs are at the right stage. In this process, timing plays a crucial role.

o Egg retrieval: During the egg retrieval procedure, some pain medications or sedatives are given to the concerned females. The egg(s) is sucked out with the help of a very fine needle. It is immediately placed in the lab dish, with culture media and then placed in the incubator.

o Fertilization: After this, the egg is fertilized with the help of sperm. It may be the partner’s sperm sample, or in certain cases, a donor’s. The most active sperm is used for fertilization to happen. Eggs and sperm are then transferred to the incubator, where they develop into a healthy embryo.

o Embryo transfer and implantation: According to a Fertility Doctor in Delhi, the healthiest embryo is chosen for implantation. The embryos may be one or more in number, depending upon the case. Embryo transfer happens, with the help of a small tube, known as a catheter, which is passed through the vagina/cervix into the uterus. Following the course, the person can do her daily routine work as it is not important to take bed rest after embryo transfer

o IVF to pregnancy: After a few weeks of waiting, the pregnancy test is done to confirm whether you have conceived or not.
