Basic steps for IVF:
These are the basic five steps of an IVF cycle:
Ovulation induction :- injectable medicines is used to stimulate development of multiple mature follicles
Egg retrieval: when the follicles are mature, the egg aspiration procedure is performed to remove the eggs. An ultrasound guided vaginal aspiration with special ovum pick up needle is simple and easy procedure.
Fertilization and embryo culture: sperms are either mixed or injected into an oocyte on various times interval depending upon the maturity of the oocyte. The resultant embryos are cultured for 3 or for 5 days.
Embryo transfer: with the help of embryo transfer catheter embryos are delicately transferred near the top of the endometrial cavity.
Pregnancy test : About 11 days after embryo transfer a blood test is done for pregnancy hormone
Heavy exercise like aerobics, jogging, weight lifting are prohibited during ovarian stimulation until the pregnancy test results are known.
Smoking / alcohol consumption should also be avoided during stimulation.
If a lady is under some medical treatment , please consult the doctor whether prescribed medicine are safe during stimulation protocol. As some medications may interfere with the fertility medication.
Pregnancy test report results:
The blood pregnancy test is performed 12th day after the embryo transfer. If positive, patient is asked to repeat the blood test and ultrasound to ensure successful pregnancy by visualizing fetal heart beat on 30th day after embryo transfer. A good antenatal care is required for a successful pregnancy. We have all the facilities for that.
