The main principle in an IVF treatment is that the fertilization process, in which the egg combines with sperm, happens outside the woman’s body (in vitro). The process starts with ovarian stimulation, where the woman’s ovaries are stimulated medically to release more eggs. These eggs are fertilised in a lab with either the male partners’ sperm or donor sperm. Donor eggs can also be used. The decision on whether to use donor eggs and sperm is based on the medical cause of infertility.
When should a couple opt for an IVF?
In the following conditions, couples can think of an IVF:-
* If the woman has ovulation problems
* There are damages/obstructions in the Fallopian tube
* Pelvic adhesions
* If the male partner has a poor semen quality
* If the cause of infertility is undetermined even after a thorough diagnosis.
* Long periods of infertility
Why should couples opt for IVF treatment?
Solves infertility for both men and women
IVF is one of the most successful ART techniques because it helps men and women with fertility issues. It sure started as a method to help women with missing, damaged, or blocked fallopian tubes achieve pregnancy. But many men with known/unknown infertility issues have benefitted from this procedure.
Flexible to combine with other ART techniques for greater success
The technique is much more successful when combined with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Using the ICSI technique, a single sperm from a sample is extracted and injected into the cytoplasm of the egg for optimal fertilization rates.
A combination of IVF and ICSI is the only option for men with a low sperm count to have a biological child. The only other way is via sperm donation or adoption. The success rates range between 30-45 % and depend on the patient’s factor. If the couple has to travel after the treatment, they can choose the timing of pregnancy with an IVF.
