In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF at Birla Fertility & IVF

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. It is a series of procedures used to assist with the conception of a baby. During IVF, mature eggs are collected from a woman’s ovaries and fertilised with sperm under laboratory conditions.

The fertilised eggs are monitored in a lab for several days until embryos form. The embryos are then transferred to the uterus to grow and develop.

At Birla Fertility & IVF, we offer world-class IVF treatment for people struggling with fertility issues. It is one several techniques available to help people with fertility problems have a baby.

The IVF Process

Prior to your IVF cycle, you and your partner will undergo a detailed evaluation to assess the health of your ovaries, uterus, and quality of semen. This thorough evaluation helps our fertility experts plan a tailormade IVF treatment that will best suit your situation. An IVF cycle can be broken down into the following steps or procedures.

Step 1 – Ovarian stimulation

Step 2 – Egg Retrieval

Step 3 – Fertilisation

Step 4 – Embryo Transfer

Step 5 – IVF Pregnancy

Step 1 – Ovarian stimulation

At the start of your IVF cycle, the ovaries are stimulated with a course of hormonal medications to stimulate the ovaries to produce a greater number of eggs (as opposed to a single egg produced during a menstrual cycle). You will undergo routine ultrasound scans and blood tests to monitor the development of your follicles that produce eggs. The doctor will schedule the egg retrieval procedure once the eggs are ready for collection.

Step 2 – Egg Retrieval

Step 3 – Fertilisation

Step 4 – Embryo Transfer

Step 5 – IVF Pregnancy

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the full form of IVF?

IVF is the acronym for In vitro fertilisation. It is the process of fertilisation of an egg with sperm outside the body in a carefully controlled environment and then transferring the embryo (fertilised egg) into the uterus of the gestational carrier (female partner or surrogate).

How many injections are needed in an IVF cycle?

Many patients wonder how many fertility medication injections will be needed during the IVF cycle. There is no definite number. The frequency and dosage of medications depend entirely on the IVF plan specific to your age, reproductive health, and the health of your ovaries. This can range from 10-12 days of injections during the IVF cycle.

What is the success rate of IVF the first time?

The success rate of IVF depends on many factors such as maternal age, cause of infertility, sperm, and egg health amongst others. Some couples might become pregnant right after the first IVF cycle while others might take several cycles. In some cases, couples might also be able to conceive naturally after their IVF cycle.
