In Vitro Fertilization or IVF is a medical procedure that brings an egg and sperm together to create a pregnancy. If you’re not having luck getting pregnant, you might consider IVF treatment.

How IVF Process Works?

Are you trying to conceive since long and still failed? IVF process can help as it is infertility treatment. With IVF, a doctor will extract your eggs, combine them with your partner’s (or a donor’s) sperm in a petri dish, ensure that the two combine to create an embryo, and then transfer the embryo into your uterus. One IVF cycle typically takes between 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

IVF has been around for over 30 years, and the success rate is as high as 43%, depending on your age, your lifestyle, and the cause of your infertility. IVF treatment may also require more than one cycle to work, but the odds of success are increased by subsequent cycles. IVF process can also be very costly infertility treatment and take an emotional toll if the treatment does not work.

What Is The Need Of IVF Treatment?

There are a few different profile of people who use IVF:

1. Couples who have been actively tracking fertility and trying to conceive for one year without success can opt for this infertility treatment. For the best fertility tracking tools and predictions, we recommend the ELA app.

2. Women who know they have the fertility issues, such as endometriosis, PCOS, and tubal issues.

3. Couples who do not produce either healthy eggs or healthy sperm

4. Single women and same-sex couples who want to be parents. One benefit of IVF process is that it can be pursued with the help of donor eggs sperm

For couples who don’t know why they’re having trouble getting pregnant, the first step is to have a fertility workup to identify the issue. Men provide a semen sample to be analyzed so doctors can look at sperm count and possible problems with the transportation of the sperm. Women undergo a number of tests, including ovulation analysis and careful review of their fallopian tubes and uterus. Once the reason you haven’t gotten pregnant is identified, IVF treatment can begin.

What Are The Health Risks?

The medications involved with IVF process may have a number of side effects, including cramping, bloating and constipation? Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a more extreme reaction to IVF process medications and is due to too much hormone medication in your body. Symptoms of OHSS may include vomiting, shortness of breath, fainting, severe stomach pains, and weight gain.

Miscarriage is a health risk for all pregnancies. While this risk is not higher or lower with IVF treatment versus natural conception, it is a possibility.

Another health risk of IVF treatment is multiple pregnancy or twins. This is a health risk because carrying multiples is much riskier than carrying one child. Depending on your age, your doctor will personalize your IVF experience to work toward conceiving only one baby at a time.

You will be surprised to know that age and lifestyle can also impact the success rate of IVF treatment. Proper and balanced diet before starting IVF treatment can help in improving your chances of IVF success significantly.
