IVF - Solution to Infertility

There are lots of women these days that are really having a hard time to enjoy their motherhood because of some health problems. But because of the technology, they are now able to experience the feeling of being a mother and being pregnant.

In-vitrofertilization- It is one of the most commonly used assisted reproductive treatments that involves the fertilization of an ovum in a laboratory dish, after which the embryos are transferred into the uterus of a woman.
There are five steps in the embryo transfer process:
1. The development of ripening eggs in the ovaries is observed
2. The eggs are collected
3. The sperms are collected
4. Eggs and sperm are kept together in the lab where they are given suitable conditions to fertilize, resulting in the initial growth of an embryo
5. The embryos are transferred into the uterus
The time of ripening of the eggs is controlled. To make better the chances of quality egg collection, fertility drugs are prescribed. Before the egg retrieval is done, an ultrasound of the ovaries is done to check egg development. A urine/ blood test is also done to measure the levels of hormone.
The Process of Egg Retrieval
The process takes place trans-vaginally where a hollow needle is guided by an ultrasound image. Eggs are removed from ovaries with the use of this needle, which is called follicular aspiration. One needs to take care of the perfect timing for this.
After retrieval, the eggs along with sperms are kept in the incubator for the fertilization process, which is checked upon at regular intervals for fertilization, cell division and formation of an embryo. The transfer usually happens within 2 - 3 days after egg retrieval, which is done by inserting a speculum into the vagina for exposing cervix (the neck of the womb). This is followed by a resting period, ultrasounds and blood tests to check possible pregnancy.
