IVF Cycle

Process & Procedures (IVF)

IVF Stages

Fertility treatment through IVF involves a series of stages that carefully planned and conducted at our fertility clinic. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the IVF process and stages.

1. Ovarian Stimulation:

First stage in the IVF process involves injecting a hormone that stimulates multiple egg production in your ovaries. The hormonal injection prepares your ovaries to release multiple eggs at once, increasing the chances of your conception.

2. Egg Retrieval:

Egg retrieval involves collecting mature eggs from your ovaries through a fine needle. It’s done within 36-48 hours of injecting the fertility medicine.

3. Sperm Retrieval:

On the same day your egg retrieval scheduled, your doctor collect the sperm sample of your partner. Testicular aspiration and PESE conducted to retrieve healthy sperm in case of male infertility.

4. Fertilization:

The eggs and sperm mixed and kept in an incubator overnight for fertilization. If this process doesn’t work, your healthcare provider inject individual sperm cells into mature eggs. Sometimes, the doctors let the embryo grow in the incubator until a sample can be collected for chromosomal abnormality testing. This mitigates the risk of the parents passing genetic disease to their children.

5. Implantation:

After fertilization, one or more embryos will be implanted into your uterus. This is done through a long and thin tube called a catheter. It’s inserted into your cervix through the vagina, and the developed embryos transferred to your uterus. The embryos can take up to a week to attach to the uterine lining.

6. Pregnancy Testing:

You can take a pregnancy test at home 12 days after egg retrieval. If you tested positive, you will be referred to a gynecologist for further instructions. If the test results are negative, you can schedule another IVF cycle.

What is IVF Injections

Procedure of IVF involves follicle-stimulating hormone shots that release multiple eggs from your ovaries. It’s an effective way to get your ovaries to release mature and healthy eggs that can be used for fertilization.

IVF injections consist mainly of FSH, but they can also include luteinizing hormone (LH). Your doctor may also prescribe Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a pregnancy hormone, to mature the eggs faster.

Additionally, you will take medications and injectable shots to prepare your uterine lining for embryo implantation.
