What Is IVF and When It Should Be Considered

Jan 20 | 2022 By Admin

Several experts in the field of health care have admitted that IVF treatment is far more successful when compared to other fertility treatments like intrauterine insemination. What makes IVF treatment different and better than intrauterine insemination is that the former can be used for treating different types of infertility issues. 

IVF or in vitro fertilization can be described as a common type of infertility treatment. IVF treatment involves the use of fertility drugs for stimulating multiple egg development. The eggs in the ovaries will be later retrieved with the help of a small needle, which will be fertilized with the sperm in a specialized clinic or lab. 

Who Should Consider IVF Treatment 

In vitro fertilization is considered by many as the most successful type of infertility treatment for all patients including the ones with the following conditions. 

  • Fallopian tube obstruction or damage
  • Ovulation problems
  • Pelvic adhesions
  • Endometriosis
  • Poor semen quality
  • Prolonged infertility
  • Unexplained infertility 

In addition, IVF is also used for enabling PGT (Preimplantation Genetic Testing) of embryos. That said, it is important to understand that IVF treatment does not include making new eggs. So, IVF might not be an ideal solution for women who are unable to implant and carry a pregnancy. 

ART or Assisted Reproductive Technologies that include In vitro fertilization involved using donor sperm, donor egg, and surrogate (gestational carrier) is capable of overcoming all types of biological infertility limitations. ART treatment is also ideal for non-traditional family building and single individuals.

Success Rate of IVF 

Do you know that the primary factor that affects the success rate of most IVF treatments is age? Women who are below the age of 35 have a 50-50 chance of getting pregnant in their first IVF treatment process. 

Women who do not get pregnant after their first IVF treatment have a higher chance of getting pregnant on the second, third, or another cycle of the treatment. It is best to get in touch with our IVF treatment center in Kerala to learn more about IVF. 

Everything You Need to Know About IVF 

As mentioned earlier, IVF is considered a better treatment option when compared to IUI (intrauterine insemination) and other infertility treatments for a number of reasons. For starters, IVF is capable of preventing multiple births since it uses SET (Single Embryo Transfer). Women who are undergoing IVF are more likely to get pregnant faster than other infertility treatment methods. 

IVF is also an ideal treatment option for individuals who want to have more than one kid. Frozen embryos, which have not been used during the first pregnancy, will be used in the future if you want to have more children. If you are still unable to decide if IVF is the right treatment option for you or not, then it is best to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Factors to Consider 

It is true that you will need to consider a number of factors before deciding to undergo an IVF treatment in Kerala. Some of the most important factors that need to be considered are family medical history, fertility diagnosis, and age. Your doctor will be able to tell if IVF treatment can help you get pregnant or have kids after examining the above-mentioned things. 

If your chances of IVF being successful are very less, then you will need to consider using donor sperm or eggs. Some other decisions that you will need to make before opting for an IVF treatment include the following. 

  • Number of embryos for freezing
  • Number of embryos for transferring
  • Treatment cycle type
  •  Preimplantation Genetic Testing of the embryo
  • Pre-treatment genetic testing of both men and women 

When Should You Choose IVF Directly 

If you have very low chances with IUI, but better chances of getting pregnant and having kids with IVF, then you should opt for IVF without any doubts. In most cases, individuals who are facing conditions like fallopian tube damage, pelvic adhesions, and severe to moderate endometriosis will benefit from undergoing an IVF treatment.
