Things To Know Before Opting For IVF

Once a couple decides to go ahead with IVF(In vitro fertilization), the next concern is the success rate and to decide where to do it.

As we all know IVF has its limitations and a variety of factors influence the outcome. Some of them are under our control and some of them are not.

Outcome of an IVF cycle depends on the quality of the embryo which in turn depends on the egg quality and the sperm quality. Egg quality is mainly dependent on the age of the woman. As the age increases , particularly in the late thirties , the chances of having aneuploid/ abnormal eggs increases. ICSI( intracytoplasmic sperm injection) can overcome most of the sperm related problems but severely abnormal semen samples can give rise to poor quality embryos, thereby compromising the IVF success rates. Egg numbers are equally important. Studies show that the IVF success increases as the number of eggs retrieved increases upto about 15 eggs. Thereafter there is no further increase in the success.

OVULATION INDUCTION

What is ovulation?

Usually each month one ovary will be stimulated by hormones produced in the brain. These cause a small cyst or follicle to grow on the ovary in which an egg develops. Another hormone then causes the follicle to release one egg to travel down the fallopian tube where it can be fertilised by the sperm which swims up from the vagina. This usually occurs around 14 days after the beginning of a period, but can vary between 11 – 16 days.
