How to prepare for the treatment?
You and your partner will have to undergo various screenings before beginning a cycle of IVF.

  • Ovarian reserve testing: Your doctor will test the concentration of estradiol (estrogen), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and anti-mullerian hormone to determine the quantity and quality of your eggs. The tests are conducted to help predict how your ovaries will respond to fertility medication.
  • Semen analysis: The doctor may conduct semen analysis before the start of an IVF treatment cycle.
  • Infectious disease screening: You and your partner will both be tested for any infectious diseases, including HIV.
  • Practice embryo transfer: The infertility experts might organize a mock embryo transfer to measure the depth of your uterine cavity and the approach most likely to successfully lay the embryos into your uterus.
  • Uterine exam: Your doctor will examine the inside lining of the uterus before starting the IVF. The procedure is performed by a sonohysterography, where a fluid is injected through the cervix into your uterus and an ultrasound is used to create images of your uterine cavity.

Procedure involved

  • Usually, the complete cycle of IVF can take about two to three weeks, and if needed, more than one cycle has to be initiated.
  • For various people, specific techniques are used in IVF. It depends on whether your sperm, donor eggs, or embryos are being utilised.
  • Also, some situations may ensue where the cycle has to be cancelled because there is not adequate follicles growth, or there is a serious risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).
  • Ovarian Stimulation: The woman is recommended certain medicines so that eggs are matured and eggs are prepared for fertilisation. When the follicles look promising during her 2nd or 3rd day of menstrual cycle, woman will receive a dose of hCG, which assists in maturing the eggs.
  • Egg Retrieval: After the injection, egg retrieval will be organized, during which you will be placed under sedation, and eggs will be retrieved via an ultrasound-guided needle procedure.
  • Sperm Collection: The semen of the man will be secured, and it will be washed applying treatments, and then the eggs will be arranged in a unique culture for fertilization.
  • Embryo Transfer: After fertilization, the embryologist will pick the healthiest embryos and transfer these to the uterus.

 What to expect after the treatment?

  • After the embryo transfer, you can resume your daily activities. Avoid any vigorous activity which may cause discomfort.
  • After 12 days to two weeks after egg retrieval, the doctor may carry a blood test to determine whether you're pregnant.
  • If you're pregnant, the doctor will refer you to an obstetrician for prenatal care.
  • If you're not pregnant, you will be recommended to stop taking progesterone and you may likely get your period within a week. If you want to have another go of in vitro fertilization (IVF), the doctor may suggest special steps you can take to increase your chances of getting pregnant through IVF.

Potential risks that you need to know about:
Some of the risks associated with IVF are:

  • Spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Mild bloating
  • Mild cramping
  • Multiple births.
  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, swelling of ovaries, and becoming painful.
