Taking Care of Infertility: What to Expect Along the IVF Conception Process?


Taking Care of Infertility: What to Expect Along the IVF Conception Process?

IVF, often known as in vitro fertilisation, is a collection of procedures that aid in conception. In a laboratory, it happens when human sperm and egg are fertilised. If the fertilised egg (embryo) successfully implants in the uterus, pregnancy will result. In vitro fertilisation is used to treat infertility or genetic conditions (IVF). Before starting IVF, you and your spouse may be able to try less intrusive treatments such as fertility drugs to increase egg production or intrauterine insemination (IUI), in which sperm is directly injected into the uterus just before ovulation. Sometimes the first line of treatment for infertility in women over 40 is advised to be IVF. IVF could still be an option if you have particular medical conditions.

Why is IVF performed?

IVF treatment for infertility may be advantageous for the following patients:

·       Male factor infertility

·       Such as sperm motility problems or premature ovarian failure

·       Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes

·       Women who experience ovulation problems

·       Women who have had their fallopian tubes removed

·       People with hereditary illnesses; and unexplained infertility.

IVF Natural Cycle

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a natural process; it does not, however, involve taking a lot of medicines to induce the ovaries to create a lot of eggs. Women do receive daily injections at the end of the cycle to prevent early ovulation, and it is during this time that minute quantities of gonadotropin medication are needed to sustain the growth of the egg. While patients are being studied in a normal cycle, the development of the dominant follicle is monitored using ultrasounds and blood tests. Egg retrieval is then performed after determining that the dominant follicle is the appropriate size. Similar to traditional IVF, the retrieved egg is then fertilised in a lab setting. If an embryo is produced and continues to develop, it is transferred.

Natural vs. traditional IVF

Natural IVF is IVF that relies less on medication than conventional IVF and works with a woman's own natural cycle. In traditional IVF, drugs are used to "down-regulate" the menstrual cycle before it is restarted, and then stimulating chemicals are used to create follicles (immature egg cells).

Natural IVF, on the other hand, continues the cycle rather than interrupting it, and the focus of the treatment is to harvest the one follicle that the body has naturally selected. While no stimulants are used during Natural Cycle IVF, Modified Natural IVF uses small dosages of medicine to help this single follicle grow.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Natural IVF?

Women whom we categorise as having a high risk for OHSS include those with PCOS.

·       Women who are receiving cancer treatment or who are unable to take fertility drugs owing to a medical problem.

·       Those females who are not interested in freezing any eggs or embryos.

·       Women who don't produce many egg follicles throughout their next hormonal cycle may wish to consider natural IVF.

The benefits of Natural IVF

Decreases the likelihood of multiple pregnancies and gets rid of expensive stimulant medications.

·       Reduces the possibility of negative drug responses or issues.

·       This results in a considerably safer and shorter course of treatment.

Drawbacks of Natural IVF

·       It's possible that an egg won't produce a healthy embryo.

·       There aren't any more embryos available or available to store.

·       With drug-free IVF, live birth rates per treatment cycle are much lower, as is the pregnancy rate.
