• Embryo transfer
It involves ovarian stimulation to produce a number of eggs, which are collected under ultrasound guidance. With IVF, the eggs are mixed with prepared sperm and fertilization takes place over the next few hours. With lCSl, a single selected sperm is injected into the egg to fertilize it. The resulting fertilised eggs are allowed to develop for 23 days Embryos are selected for transfer in to the uterus. Following embryo transfer, any remaining suitable embryos are cryopreserved for future transfer.
Indications for IVF may include Blocked, damaged or absent fallopian tubes; Endometriosis; Ovulatory problem; Unexplained infertility; and Sperm problems. .
Turning to IVF Services for Conception
Having a child is one of the most enjoyable things for any man and woman to be a part of and if there’s one thing that thousands of soon to be parents around the world struggle with, it’s conception. Even when schedules are set, diets are followed and intercourse is properly practiced – it’s not uncommon for conception to fail to occur, and that’s why more and more couples are turning to the potential of IVF services.
IVF, or In Vitro Fertilisation as it is recognised in full, is the activity of manually fertilising a woman’s egg via scientific techniques. The goal is to recreate a successful conception in much the same way as intercourse would – albeit it in a more controlled environment, where difficulties can be minimised relating to the way in which the sperm gains entry to the egg.
There are a wide variety of reasons why a woman may struggle to conceive. From ovary concerns and ‘inhospitable environments’ that make it hard for the sperm to make its way into the egg, all the way to a low sperm count on behalf of the man – the ability to get pregnant is often only half of the battle, and that’s before the natal period is even considered.
The Benefits of IVF
Where IVF comes into the fray is in its ability to minimise these unwanted events, before ensuring that the greatest chance for the sperm to enter the egg is presented. This activity is very technical, and although it may seem simplistic – the truth is that it is a particularly involved process. The first thing that a gynaecologist will do is to extract a healthy egg and sperm, from the man and woman wishing to conceive.
This process is fairly straightforward and once the relevant materials have been gathered they will typically be placed ‘on ice’, or put to action immediately. The environment will be prepared to maximise conception, including temperature controls, and then the sperm will be introduced to the egg, or eggs. IVF typically takes a few tries and it’s a very fortunate set of individuals that see positive results after their first attempt.
Although the rate of success is far higher these days (especially with the recent improvements in technologies relating to the medical industry), the treatment is by no means a guaranteed method of conception. In many cases ineffective treatments will become apparent after the first few attempts. If the sperm count is simply too low or if the egg is incapable of containing a healthy sperm for growth; a couple may find it impossible to fertilise and conceive and other options may be advised instead.
If the egg is fertilised however, it will then be placed within the woman where the body should take care of the growth process. In either event; a gynaecologist will be able to advise on the most effective courses of action – as well as being able to address the pregnancy if the treatment is a success.
