What is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

In humans, fertilization of the egg takes place in the uterus. The fertilized zygote then attaches itself to the walls of the endometrium. Thus a baby grows in the mother’s womb for 9 months before the delivery. But, certain circumstances may require this fertilization process to be initiated outside the body.

In vitro fertilization, or IVF as it is popularly referred to, is a laboratory-based process where eggs from a woman’s ovaries and male sperm are combined in a glass dish.

Who is the ideal candidate for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

In vitro fertilization is one of the methods to achieve pregnancy when the couple cannot conceive naturally. The following conditions make you and your partner ideal candidates for IVF:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Male factor infertility (low sperm count or motility)
  • Female factor infertility (damaged fallopian tubes, endometriosis)
  • Genetic disorders that may be passed on to the child with natural conception

What to expect at the consultation for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

In case of infertility, both male and female partners must consult Dr. Manisha Risbud . The doctor first has to establish the reasons for infertility. Very often, there may be more than one reason for this. Dr. Manisha Risbud does a thorough physical examination of both partners to assess their general health.

Dr. Manisha does an internal checkup of the woman’s vagina in the presence of a nurse. The doctor also examines the man’s external male organs to look for abnormalities if present. The woman also has to go through sonography and MRI.

Since the process of coming to a diagnosis is elaborate, the couple has to pay several visits to the doctor.

How is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) performed?

  • IVF is a step-by-step process where the first step is to prime the male and female partners with medicines to produce healthy sperm and ovum.
  • Then, an ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina. It is used to identify mature follicles. The doctor uses a needle guided through the vagina with the help of an ultrasound.
  • The eggs are retrieved from the follicles through the needle that is connected to a suction device.
  • The male partner has to donate his semen in a test tube. Sometimes male sperm are collected under local anesthesia. The collected semen is processed in the lab to obtain a concentrated solution.
  • The process of fertilization of the egg is carried out in the lab, where it is kept for 2-6 days to mature.
  • Finally, they are transferred to the uterus to establish a successful pregnancy.

What will happen after In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

Once the fertilization egg is achieved at the lab, it is transferred to the mother’s uterus. As the fertilized eggs are placed inside the mother’s womb, it attaches themselves to the uterine wall. Now it proceeds like a normal pregnancy.

Women are very often given complete bed rest to avoid abortion. The pregnant mother may need hormonal support to maintain pregnancy. She is asked to report to the doctor frequently to ensure the healthy growth of the baby. If the health conditions allow, normal delivery is preferred over surgical intervention or assisted delivery.

In case of an unsuccessful effort, the procedure can be repeated to achieve a successful pregnancy.

What are the possible complications of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

The following are some of the risks of IVF:

  • Patients who undergo IVF treatment tend to develop a lot of hope. In an incidence of failure, they tend to feel disheartened.
  • If the fertilized egg does not get implanted in the uterus, then there is a risk of abortion.
  • Hyperstimulation of the ovary to retrieve more mature eggs can lead to symptoms like abdominal pain, loose motions, weight gain, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Chances of premature births and multiple pregnancies are higher with IVF.
