IVF stands for in vitro fertilization where in vitro translates to in glass; it is a process in which the egg and the sperm are fertilized outside the body of the female. This procedure is used to help with fertility or prevent genetic problems and assist to conceive a child. The process involves monitoring the women’s ovulatory process, extracting an ovum or ova from the ovaries and then letting it fertilize with the sperms at a laboratory. The fertilized egg is then planted back in the women’s uterus.
A number of factors determine if a patient is suitable for IVF. These are:
The success rate of IVF means the percentage of procedures turning into favorable outcomes. It is dependents upon a variety of factors such as the maternal age, cause of infertility, embryo status, reproductive history and lifestyle factors. Maternal age plays a very important role; younger candidates are more likely to get pregnant and women older than 41 years are likely to get pregnant with a donor egg. The success rates of IVF have increased with technological advancement.
The complications after an IVF can be multiple births, premature delivery and low birth weight, ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome which leads to swollen and painful ovaries.
There are no specific birth defects after an IVF delivery; it works similar to an unassisted pregnancy.
After IVF take a balanced diet, avoid stress and remain calm, take the medicines prescribed by doctor rigorously, avoid rigorous exercise, sexual intercourse, and extreme temperatures. Do not take excessive bed rest but though reduce physical activity.
