What Exactly Is IVF?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the most common types of reproductive assistance technology which is used to create an embryo by circumventing certain causes of infertility, such as sperm abnormalities in men, and fallopian tube or irregularity of ovulation in women.

During this treatment, a woman’s eggs are surgically recouped and then are effectively fertilized in a laboratory by mixing with donor’s sperm. The fertilized egg, or embryo, is left to grow for three to five days, and is then again surgically transferred back into woman’s womb.

How Long I Should Wait Before Consulting A Fertility Doctor?

Patients generally seek advice from a fertility doctor after one year of trying to get pregnant and being unsuccessful. The chances of a fertile couple conceiving a child (called the natural pregnancy rate) is around 22%; resulting in approximately 90% of couples becoming pregnant after one year of trying. It’s recommended by the best fertility specialist in Lucknow, Dr. Archana Kanodia that it’s better to get in touch with specialist.

Am I a candidate for IVF?

There are various factors involved in ascertaining if a patient is suitable for IVF treatment or not. Appropriate candidates may experience:

  • Low sperm counts
  • Endometriosis
  • Problems with the fallopian tubes
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Sperm unable to penetrate or survive
  • Other health issues

The only way to know for sure if IVF is right for you is to undergo a complete examination and consultation with the best IVF Centre.

How successful is IVF?

The average IVF success rates with the method of using one’s own eggs begins to generally drop around age thirty and further dips rapidly in mid-30s and early 40s, as per to the lower egg quantity and quality. At Mother’s Care & IVF Centre, our success rate consistently beats the national average.

How Long Does IVF Take?

The IVF process can last from four to six weeks prior to the retrieval of egg. The embryo(s) will then be implanted afterwards between two to five days. Not all patients get success on their first IVF attempt; in fact, it’s not unconventional for patients to go through the multiple IVF cycles before finally getting successfully pregnant.

Are There Any Restrictions While Undergoing IVF?

Yes, of course. Dr. Archana Kanodia recommends that you adhere to the basic guidelines listed below during the process of IVF and into your pregnancy:-

Smoking:  It’s recommended that if any of the partner smoke then both should stop smoking at least three months prior to the commencement of an IVF cycle, and before ovulation induction begins. The effects of tobacco both orally and by inhaling its smoke is toxic and harmful to woman’s eggs.

Drinking:  The consumption of alcohol should be avoided at the beginning of IVF treatment, until the pregnancy test, and if found pregnant, then until the birth of the child.

Medications:  It’s very important to inform your fertility doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications. As some medicines can interfere with the prescribed fertility medication.

Vigorous Exercise: Intense and vigorous physical activities like aerobics, weightlifting or running are generally prohibited during ovarian stimulation whereas; mild movements and exercises are recommended.

Supplements: It is important to know that all the Herbal supplements are advised to be completely prohibited during the IVF process. The bottom-line of the message is, don’t assume herbal means ‘safe,’” Dr. Archana Kanodia says that “Always check with your doctor before starting any kind of medicine whether herbal or not.”

What Happens If I Become Pregnant?

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, you’ll continue to see your fertility doctor for blood testing, and in order to confirm that the pregnancy is progressing smoothly, an ultrasound is recommended. Once the fetus’ heartbeat has been successfully verified, you’ll be then referred to an obstetrician for the rest of your journey of pregnancy.

If I Didn’t Get Pregnant, When Can We Try Again?

Though it’s uncommon at Mother’s Care & IVF Centre but still in order to do justice with the question, patients are advised to wait for one or two full menstrual cycles before recommencing another IVF cycle.

Is Childlessness The Result Of Infertility In Only Women?

No, not at all, it is widely witnessed that women bear the brunt of infertility and are labelled in the worst possible way even when the males refuse medical evaluation. Both male and female infertility is very much common in India. While female infertility stat ranges from 40-50% of all infertility cases, male infertility accounts for 30-40% of all the infertility cases. With this national data, one can easily figure out that the infertility cannot be only shouldered to women as men consolidates a major contribution in the stats. In order to break such ignorance and myths, Dr. Archana Kanodia takes out of the box steps to educate people behind the actual cause of infertility.
