How can In Vitro Fertilisation or IVF help you?

IVF is one of the most common assisted fertility treatments performed globally. It is a medical procedure in which eggs are retrieved from a woman’s ovaries and fertilised with sperm in a laboratory – hence, the term “in-vitro” or “in a glass.”

Once the eggs are fertilised, they are then transferred back to the woman’s womb to grow and develop. The entire process usually takes place for around two weeks. In most cases, women under 40 years old are ideal candidates for this method of clinical intervention.

Is IVF right for you?

IVF is a fertility treatment for couples trying to conceive for two years without success due to underlying medical conditions. Some of the clinical conditions that make IVF the best option are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Male factor infertility
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Tubal blockage

The success rate for IVF varies depending on many factors, such as the age of the woman, the cause of infertility, and the number of embryos transferred. However, many couples who undergo IVF go on to have healthy babies.

Seeking medical advice from an experienced obstetrician or gynaecologist is the best way to know if IVF is the best alternative fertilisation method for you. They can also evaluate if you are an eligible candidate for this procedure.

Post-procedural Care and Recovery

After an embryo transfer or egg extraction, you must take it easy and get plenty of rest. For the first 24 hours, avoid strenuous activities, baths, orgasms, or drinking alcohol. You can usually return to your routine after a day or two.

Your obstetrician or gynaecologist may recommend some post-op tests, such as blood tests and ultrasounds, to check on your progress. It’s also vital that you take the recommended medication to help support implantation and early pregnancy.

Medical History

Your doctor may ask for your medical history, including:

  • Medical and/or psychosocial problems
  • Blood pressure, height and weight
  • Breast and cervical exam
  • Date of your last menstrual period (an accurate LMP is helpful when determining gestational age and due date)
  • Birth control methods

  • History of previous pregnancies
  • Hospitalizations
  • Medications you are taking
  • Medication allergies
  • Your family’s medical history
