Steps of In-Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization is a multistage procedure for preventing fertility or genetic problems with the conception of a child. The in vitro fertilization is a complex process.IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. There are certain steps involved in the process. The best center for in-vitro fertilization is the SCI IVF Centre.

Ovulation stimulation

During the stimulation cycle of an IVF cycle, patients have the regulatory control of the secreting hormones. The duration of the stimulation phase depends on how the medication responds to the uterus walls, ovary, and hormones. The blood tests and ultrasound of the ovaries generally respond to the stimulation of the hormonal medications.

Egg retrieval

The mother will be sedated and would be given the medication which would relieve the pain. The eggs are collected from the ovary with a hollow needle that is been linked to the ultrasound probe. After egg retrieval, you are recommended for the medication that builds up and prepares the lining of the womb for embryo transfer. Eggs can be also stored in a suitable environment and optimum temperature if you are not ready to become pregnant and want to delay the process. The egg retrieval process takes about 20-30 minutes for completion

Sperm retrieval

The male partner is asked to produce a semen sample. In IVF hospital in Delhi, the specimen is washed thoroughly, scanned under the electronic microscope and the sperms that show maximum motility are selected for the fertilization process.

Sperm retrieval is done when pregnancy is the goal and is operated for men who have little or no sperm in the semen, or men who are facing erectile dysfunction or have lost the ability to ejaculate. In the following cases, sperm can be collected from other parts of the reproductive tract either the testis or from the semen tube.

Fertilizing the eggs

Retrieved eggs from the female partner are fertilized either by the process of conventional artificial insemination. The eggs and sperm are placed in the laboratory in a solution culture containing Petridis or can be also done intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) which requires only 1 sperm cell. The eggs are regularly monitored and screened to confirm the fertilization. IVF specialist doctor in Delhi carries out the process in an effective way.

Embryo transfer into the uterus

Embryologists try for a close and regular monitoring of the embryos’ development and viability to determine whether the transfer should be done on day 3 and day 5. An embryo can be transferred three days after retrieval when the embryo is a four-to-eight celled stage. Day 5 of the embryo is called the blastocyst and this may be done then. Embryos are often transferred after five days of retrieval and fertilization (known as blastocyst transfer). A small catheter is passed through which the embryo is placed in the uterus. If the procedure is successful, it takes about six to ten days for the implantation to occur.

 Embryo Cryopreservation

The embryologist tries to preserve any remaining embryos for the process of cryopreservation (freezing). Embryo cryopreservation gives the patients with infertility problems an opportunity who wishes to have a second child.
