In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Procedure
In Vitro Fertilization is most times simply referred to as IVF. It is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that combines eggs and sperm outside the uterus (womb). A specialized laboratory is used to do this. The term in vitro means that it is a process that takes place inside a test tube (this is why some people refer to the baby born through this process as a test tube baby). After combining the sperm and eggs, the eggs begin cell division if fertilization occurs. The resulting embryo is then transferred into the woman’s uterus. Here, implantation is expected to occur, and the embryo will develop into a healthy baby.
Alternatively, the eggs can be frozen and preserved for future use. There are other instances where the eggs can be removed and frozen. A significant instance is when a cancer patient wants to undergo radiation or chemotherapy. This prevents the eggs from being damaged.
IVF is usually performed as a treatment for infertility, a condition in which a person cannot get pregnant after at least a year of trying. Several reasons can make couples opt for IVF. This can stem from problems unique to the woman (such as blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, endometriosis, fibroids in the uterus, a desire to have babies after tubal ligation, irregularities with ovulation), problems unique to the man (such as low sperm count and/or sperm quality), and/or problems from either of the couples (such as infertility without a known cause, genetic disorders, etc). IVF can also be used to prevent transferring genetic problems to a child or an offspring.
In vitro fertilization is undoubtedly the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology today.
In Vitro Fertilization At Clinic Mono
The IVF process at Clinic Mono involves five steps: Firstly, the woman is given injectable hormones to stimulate healthy egg development. The hormones will help the patient produce more eggs than she would have in one month. When IVF is done, the goal is usually to produce 10 to 12 eggs in a typical ovulatory month.
Secondly, the eggs are then collected from the ovaries through a minor surgery called the egg retrieval. This procedure is done trans-vaginally while the woman is sedated. On the same day, sperm is also collected from the male partner.
Thirdly, the sperm and egg are combined in a laboratory through different fertilization technologies. For example, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Fourthly, the embryo is cultured. This stage involves observing the embryo as it divides from two to four cells and then eight cells. Sometimes, they are observed as they grow for up to 5 days.
Finally, the embryo is transferred. During the transfer of the embryo(s), the woman’s uterus is observed by ultrasound, while a small catheter is inserted into the uterine cavity through the cervix. The embryos are then placed in the uterus. After this, it is hoped that they will attach to the uterus and begin to grow. It takes about 2 weeks after the transfer to detect pregnancy. This period of waiting is referred to as the two-week wait period. After two weeks, the patient returns to the clinic for a blood test to check her pregnancy status.

In Vitro Fertilization Frequently Asked Questions
IVF means In Vitro Fertilization.
One cycle of in vitro fertilization treatment usually lasts six to eight weeks, covering the following processes: consultation, stimulation of the ovaries, retrieval of the eggs, fertilization, transfer of the embryo, and a pregnancy test.
If you intend to go for an IVF treatment, some of the things you can do to improve your chances of having a successful procedure include taking prenatal vitamins, ceasing smoking, eating well, and maintaining a healthy weight. In addition, eliminate caffeine intake and avoid exposure to viruses.
Embryo transfer is the last stage in the in vitro fertilization process. It is a critically important procedure. Irrespective of how good the other steps are, a carelessly performed embryo transfer can ruin everything. This is a delicate process, and the success of the entire IVF cycle depends on the successful placement of the embryos. The most efficient technique for embryo transfer is ultrasound-guided embryo transfer.
After fertilization, embryo transfer is the next in line. It is usually done three to five days after egg retrieval.
