Let’s Discuss All About IVF in More Detail:

IVF can be expensive most of the time due to complex procedures and special conditions required for it. Although a few states have laws that make health insurance companies cover some or all of the costs of infertility treatment, yet there are many states or insurance plans, which do not offer any fertility treatment coverage at all. Find more information about the cost of IVF plans and other fertility treatments in Bangalore. The cost of IVF depends upon the medicines, procedures, anesthesia, ultrasounds, blood tests, lab work, and embryo storage.

What is IVF?

IVF or In-vitro Fertilization is one of the popular treatment procedures under ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) for those couples who cannot conceive naturally. Under this procedure, the mother’s eggs from her ovaries are retrieved and fertilized in a laboratory by mixing with father’s sperm. After that, the conceived embryo is attached to the mother’s uterus again for the normal development of the fetus into a baby. These babies are as normal as other babies are and they do not lack in any way when compared with other normally conceived children. Today, it is a huge success all over the world.

IVF procedure

Many women find pregnancy successful after trying an IVF treatment. Some of the steps involved in the IVF procedure are as follows:

Step 1: Fertility Medications

On the first day of IVF treatment, fertility medications are prescribed to stimulate the egg production specific to the body and treatment plan. If you have a number of eggs for IVF, you would have many embryos hence there is a greater possibility of the treatment being successful.

Step 2: Egg Retrieval

The second step is egg retrieval where the eggs are collected from the ovaries through general anesthetic. Eggs are retrieved with the help of ultrasound technology to guide a hollow needle and fluid is removed from the follicles. Medication is provided to relieve the pain.

Step 3: Fertilization and Embryo Culture

In the third stage, the most active sperm from partner or donor is mixed with egg in a special chamber. Eggs are placed in an incubator and monitored very carefully. When the fertilization process is completed, the embryo is ready for implantation.

Step 4: Embryo Transfer and Implantation Process

The final step of IVF is a transfer of embryo into the woman's uterus. A speculum or catheter is inserted into the uterus, and then the embryos are transferred into the uterine cavity via a small plastic tube placed through the cervix.

The most important factor that affects the cost of any treatment is success rate. Experience of the gynecologist and location of the clinic also contribute to deciding the cost of the treatment.
