IVF or In vitro Fertilization is a good option to treat infertility due to ovulation disorders, poor sperm quality or quantity, cervical disorders, and damaged Fallopian tubes.
In this procedure, daily injections of gonadotrophins are given to the lady and the procedure is called controlled ovarian hyper stimulation. The aim is to produce multiple eggs (ideally 7-15) in both the ovaries. Transvaginal ultrasound is done periodically, to monitor the number and size of the eggs. Once the eggs are mature (on the basis of size and some blood tests) mature eggs are collected from the female and are then fertilized in laboratories with the sperm coming from the male partner. The embryo developing out of fertilization is then inserted into the uterus of the female.
Although the process can be carried out with the eggs and sperm of the concerned couple, yet there may be cases where the eggs or the sperm or both are taken from a donor. A gestational carrier may also be used if necessary. The total IVF cycle is about 2 weeks.
