In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a well-known term in the realm of infertility treatments. At Lifeline Hospital Kerala, we aim to provide comprehensive information on IVF, ensuring that you are well-informed before embarking on your journey towards parenthood.

Understanding IVF

IVF, or In Vitro Fertilization, is an innovative infertility treatment where eggs and sperm are combined in a laboratory setting (‘In Vitro’ means ‘In Glass’). The fertilized egg, or zygote, develops into an embryo, which is then implanted into the uterus, ultimately leading to a successful pregnancy. IVF is a complex form of assisted reproductive technology (ART).

Reasons for Recommending IVF

IVF is not always the first choice for addressing fertility issues. Lifeline Fertility Center screens patients before recommending IVF, considering conditions such as:

  • Low sperm count and motility
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOD (Polycystic ovary syndrome) or other ovarian conditions
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Genetic disorders prevention
  • Damaged, blocked, or diseased Fallopian tubes
  • Tuberculosis affecting tubes/uterus lining
  • Advanced age of the woman
  • High age, DOR (Diminished Ovarian Reserve)
  • Repeated IUI failures
  • Disturbed tubal transport mechanism
  • Premature Ovarian Failure
  • Hormonal disturbances
  • Unexplained infertility

The IVF Process

Consultation before Anything

  • Initiate with a consultation where experienced IVF specialists propose a tailored treatment plan based on patient history and health conditions.

Pre-IVF Testing and Medical Examination

  • Conduct blood tests, urine tests, and screenings for STIs to detect abnormalities in both male and female patients.
  • Female tests include AMH, AFC Ultrasound, blood type, CBC, and more.
  • Male tests include semen evaluation, blood type, and screenings for various infections.

Genetic Screening Test

  • Analyze patient DNA for inherent disorders or diseases that could impact the child’s health.

Retrieving the Egg from the Ovaries

  • Ovarian stimulation with hormone medications to mature multiple eggs.
  • Egg retrieval using transvaginal ultrasound aspiration, followed by incubation for fertilization.

Retrieving Sperms

  • Collect partner’s sperm through masturbation or surgical methods if needed.

Fertilization

  • Choose between conventional IVF and ICSI for fertilization.
  • Combine healthy sperm with mature eggs or directly inject sperm into eggs.

PGT-A Testing

  • Conduct preimplantation genetic testing to identify chromosomal abnormalities.

Embryo Development & Transfer

  • Monitor embryo development for 5-7 days before transferring to the uterus.
  • Conduct Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) between days 19 and 21 of the menstrual cycle.

What if a Cycle Fails?

  • Acknowledge that success may not occur in the first attempt.
  • Initiate a second attempt after 3-6 months.
