IVF : A new hope

  • August 18, 2020

In Vitro fertilization, is a hope given to women with infertility by Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards. It is an assisted reproductive technology that is used to treat infertile females with blocked or damaged fallopian tubes. The method of IVF includes a combination of medicines, surgical procedures to help sperms fertilize the egg and help the egg fertilize in the uterus.

This technology has been around now since 40 years and has blessed millions of mothers with beautiful healthy babies. IVF is a constructive method with 90% success rate and thus, is advised to couples who are infertile. 

Before the treatment of IVF couples are advised to reach out to a well facilitated IVF clinic with expert IVF specialists. We are proud to suggest that Radix Healthcare has a successful team of IVF specialists who have been renowned for their successful cases treated in the past as well. 

An IVF specialist is the person who has the supreme role in your IVF treatment journey. They have full support in building you emotionally and physically throughout the journey. Some of their major roles in an IVF treatment cycle are: Maintenance of embryology lab, Egg retrieval, Checking for fertilization, Incubation and monitoring, Genetic testing, Assisted hatching, Embryo transferring and Cryopreservation.

The fertilization plan is described below in steps for better understanding about its approach: 

Step 1 :Day 1 of the period

The IVF cycle begins with the first day of your period. The specialist may prescribe you injections and medications before the first day of the period. 

Step 2: Stimulation of ovaries.

Naturally ovaries release one egg every month. On the first day of the period, your 8-14 day journey of ovulation begins where you will be provided assistance for medications to encourage the ovarian follicles to produce more eggs.Through medications and injections the eggs are made ready for ovulation.

Initially it will be difficult, but with passing days you’ll get used to it. 

Step3:  Egg retrieval This is a procedure which takes place at the hospital when eggs are taken out from ovaries. You’ll be asleep and the procedure takes about 20-30 minutes. Your fertility specialist uses the latest ultrasound technology to guide a needle into each ovary. The average number of eggs collected is 8-15. Recovery takes about 30 minutes and you’ll be able to walk out on your own.

Step4: The sperm 

If you’re a couple planning on using fresh sperm, the male will produce a sample the morning of the egg retrieval. If you are using frozen donor sperm, our scientists will have it ready in the lab. The sperm is graded using 4 different levels of quality. The best sperm are selected, and they’re ready and waiting in the lab to be introduced to the eggs.

Step5: Fertilization

In order to fertilize the eggs, eggs and some sperms are placed in a dish and then they have the chance to find each other like in the natural process. 

Step6: Embryo Development

The embryo is put into a special incubator where the conditions for growth and development are adequate. Implantation of embryos at the blastocyst stage into the uterus increases the chances of a successful pregnancy.

Step7: Embryo Transfer

If your embryo develops in the lab, you’re ready for it to be transferred into your uterus.

Step8: Final Blood Test

Approximately two weeks after your embryo transfer, you’ll have a blood test to measure your levels of the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG in your bloodstream usually means a positive pregnancy test.

IVF is such that forget all the reasons why it won’t work, just remind yourself the only reason everyday why it will.
