IVF (In-vitro Fertilization) is a form of assisted reproduction in which a man's sperm and a woman's eggs are joined in a laboratory dish outside of the body. One or more fertilised embryos may be placed into the uterus of the woman, where they will implant and develop in the uterine lining.
Natural Cycle IVF: Natural cycle IVF does not use drugs and medications. Instead, the treatment stimulates the egg’s natural development.
Male Fertility Treatment: In a male fertility treatment - ICSI, the sperm is introduced in the egg. In some cases, before the treatment, the patient’s sperm needs to be extracted.
Assisted Reproduction Techniques: In assisted reproduction techniques, medical procedures like ICSI, IVF, fertility medication, etc, are used to address the issue of infertility.
Assisted Hatching: Assisted hatching is performed along with IVF treatment. Through IVF, embryos are created and surrounded by zone pellucid, a hard outer layer of cells. The medical team enables the embryos to hatch from its shell by splitting the outer layer of cells.
Blastocyte Transfer: In a blastocyst transfer, an embryo that is five to 6 days old and has reached the blastocyst stage is transferred to the patient’s womb.
Recurrent IVF Failure Treatment: In recurrent implantation failure, the woman has experienced three failed IVF attempts even though she would have high-quality embryos. The Recurrent IVF Failure Treatment is undertaken to rectify the problem.
Fertility Preservation: Fertility Preservation is a process wherein the medical team will save the sperm, eggs or reproductive tissues. By using these later, the person can have biological children.
Surgical Sperm Retrieval: Surgical sperm retrieval is performed on men who have low sperms, or no sperms at all. The medical team will address the problem by collecting their sperms surgically to boost fertility.
Third-Party Reproduction: Third-party reproduction is a process where the embryos, eggs, or sperms are donated to the couple by a third person.
The five steps in the IVF treatment in India are enumerated below:
Step 1: Stimulation - The very first step in In-vitro fertilization is to take proper fertility medications for a few months for enabling ovaries to produce some eggs, which mature for fertilization. This step is known as ovulation induction.
Step 2: Egg retrieval - Regular ultrasound, as well as blood tests, is conducted to assess the hormone levels and also keep track of the production of eggs.
Step 3: Insemination - When ovaries produce enough eggs, doctors remove them from the body, and this is known as egg retrieval. It involves a minor surgery that is done at the clinic. Proper medicine is given to the patient to relax and stay comfortable during the process. IVF Doctors then use ultrasound to look inside the body and put a thin hollow tube through the vagina into the ovary as well as follicles that hold the eggs. A needle is attached to a suction device that pulls out the egg from each follicle gently.
Step 4: Embryo Culture - These eggs are then mixed with sperm cells that are taken from the partner or a donor. This process is known as insemination, which is carried out in a laboratory.
Step 5: Transfer - Around three to five days after the retrieval of eggs, one or more embryos are inserted in the uterus, and this process is called embryo transfer. A thin tube is slid through the cervix into the uterus, and the embryo is then inserted directly via the tube. In this procedure, pregnancy happens when any of the embryos attach to the uterus lining. This procedure of embryo transfer is painless.
Before the IVF cycle is initiated, preparation of both female eggs and male sperm need to undergo some health screenings, which are mentioned below:
Test for Ovarian Reserve – For determining the quantity as well as the quality of eggs, the doctor may test the concentration of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and also an anti-mullerian hormone in the blood during the initial days of the menstrual cycle.
Analysis of Semen – This process is done shortly before the start of an IVF treatment cycle.
Screenings for Infectious Disease – Both individuals are screened for infectious diseases, including HIV.
Uterine Examination – Doctors usually examine the inside lining of the uterus before starting the IVF procedure. It involves a sono hysterography where a fluid is injected through the cervix into the uterus. Also, an ultrasound is taken for creating images of the uterine cavity.
Medical specialists perform IVF treatment, which includes essential diagnostic tests and pre-surgery preparations, after evaluating a variety of factors. Furthermore, because IVF is an assisted reproductive technology, it necessitates the use of top-of-the-line facilities and skilled help.
These factors will impact the IVF process cost in India.
