IVF Treatment - A New Ray of Hope For Childless Couples

The IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) method, originally referred to the 'test-tube' baby method, is a fertility treatment that gathers eggs from the ovaries of a woman and fertilized with a male sperm in a lab. The fertilized egg (embryo) is then placed back in the woman's womb. In reality, the fertilization takes place in culture dish as opposed to a test tube.

This assisted reproduction consists of five steps:

• The ovary is first stimulated using fertility or ovulation drugs. The hormone drugs are taken by the woman for 8-14 consecutive days so that her ovaries will be stimulated in increasing several eggs instead of just one within one menstrual cycle. Blood testing and ultrasound will determine if the eggs are ready to be retrieved.

• Once the eggs are ready, the doctor will perform surgical procedures that will help get the eggs from a woman's ovaries.

• Next step is the insemination. The eggs will be examined to determine their potential for successful conception. The selected eggs will then be placed in an IVF culture where it will wait to be inseminated. Sperm from the father's semen will be obtained during this step and the best swimming sperm will be placed together with the egg.

• Fertilization is the next involved step in IVF treatment. It typically occurs within several hours when the egg is fertilized by the sperm. The doctor will confirm if fertilization has indeed occurred. Normally, the fertilized egg will be observed for up to three days before the next step is commenced.

• Finally, if all the previous steps went well, the resulting embryo will be transferred to the mother's uterus via a catheter. The mother must remain rested and away from stress to promote successful attachment of the embryo to the uterine wall.
