IVF : Solution for Infertile Couples

Infertility affects both male and female due to many socio-environmental, lifestyle factors. Fertility treatments are provided to both the genders along with an Andrologist when it becomes necessary. Many modern treatments are evolved in the medical field to erase the word “Infertility” and many couples are blessed with such treatments.

IVF is potential in the cases of damaged and blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, cervical issues, and immunological, unexplained fertility cases. Here we will have a look about In vitro Fertilization (IVF) process.

In IVF procedure egg is fertilized with the sperm outside the body and the resultant embryo is cultured for 3-5 days in an incubator. When other fertility methods fail to bring pregnancy, IVF is performed. The process is involved with monitoring woman’s egg maturation, retrieving oocytes from woman’s ovaries and allowing sperm with them to fertilize in the laboratory within a fluid medium. Monitoring a woman’s natural cycle and collecting a naturally selected ovum for fertilization is called as natural cycle IVF. The resultant embryo is finally transferred into the uterus to establish a pregnancy.
Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) are the two different procedures related to In Vitro Fertilization. Though GIFT is similar to IVF procedure, the egg and sperms are transferred to the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus and the fertilization takes place in the fallopian tubes, not in the lab. Sometimes GIFT associates surgery to transfer the egg & sperm into the tubes. In ZIFT the fertilization takes place in the laboratory and as GIFT the fertilized egg is transferred into the fallopian tubes by a laparoscopic surgical procedure.
