What is IVF?

IVF stands for in-vitro fertilization. IVF is a process by which egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the womb. It is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology – such as medication to induce ovulation, tablets to improve sperm count and certain operations to relieve obstructions in the womb – have failed. IVF involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process: removing eggs from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a fluid medium in order for the embryo to form. After three days the embryo is then transferred to the patient’s uterus in an attempt to establish a successful pregnancy.


Preparation for IVF

Preparation for IVF includes testing for hormones like FSH, LH, Estradiol, AMH, TSH and Prolactin. Hysteroscopy will be recommended to test the uterine cavity before performing IVF. Semen analysis will be done and if any pus cells or signs of infection are present, then we may give the husband an antibiotic. Semen freezing may be required as a backup for IVF. This helps us when the husband is unable to give sample in case of stress or difficulties on the day of egg retrieval.
