What is IVF

In-Vitro-Fertilization – IVF is an assisted reproductive process that enables couples struggling with fertility issues to achieve pregnancy. It involves the collection of eggs from the female partner and fertilizing it with sperm from the male. The resulting embryo is allowed to develop before being placed into the woman’s womb for implantation and pregnancy to occur. Archish IVF provides best IVF treatment in Bangalore.

The combination of sperm and egg is done in the lab for fertilization. The fertilized egg or embryo will be allowed to grow upto day 5.

Sometimes, more than one embryo will be formed. In this case, only one embryo will be used while the remaining can be frozen for later use. Complete IVF Cycle process can take from 1-3 months.

For couples with male factor infertility such as low motility or sperm count, our doctors can directly insert the sperm into the eggs. This process is often regarded as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection or ICSI.

Steps involved in IVF Treatment in Bangalore

One full IVF cycle can take up to 4-6 weeks. Here are the steps commonly involved.

Ovulation Stimulation

Here, you will be given hormonal drugs or injections to produce multiple eggs. This is monitored by our doctors via ultrasound and blood tests.The exact length will depend on how you respond to our medication regimen.

Egg Retrieval

Next the eggs are retrieved from your womb via ultrasound probe using a thin needle. Once the egg retrieval has been carried out, you will be given some medications to help prepare the lining in your uterine cavity for the embryo transfer. If you don’t want to use the eggs immediately, you can freeze them till whenever you’re ready to get pregnant.

Sperm Collection

After egg retrieval, we then collect a semen sample from your partner. The collected sample is washed to concentrate it and select the best sperms.

The best sperms are usually those with the highest motility. They have the best chance of fertilizing the egg.

Egg Fertilization

Now we can fertilize the eggs with sperm either via ICSI or conventional insemination.

Conventional insemination involves combining the egg and sperm in a cultured solution inside a Petri dish.

Embryo Transfer

Next, our experienced embryologists will monitor the developing embryo and decide when would be the best time to transfer it to the womb. This can take 3-5 days.

Assuming the procedure was successful, implantation can occur within 6-10 days, which subsequently results to pregnancy.

Frequently Asked Questions

IVF, or In Vitro Fertilisation, is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) used to help couples conceive a child. It involves retrieving eggs from a woman ovaries and fertilising them with sperm in a laboratory dish. The resulting embryos are then transferred back into the woman uterus to hopefully establish a pregnancy. IVF is often used in cases where other fertility treatments have been unsuccessful or in cases where there are certain medical conditions that make conception difficult. While IVF can be a highly effective method of fertility treatment, it can also be expensive and emotionally challenging for couples.

The cost of IVF treatment in Bangalore can vary depending on several factors, such as the clinic, the expertise of the doctor, and the specific treatment plan. On average, the cost of a single IVF cycle can range from INR 1,00,000 to INR 2,50,000 or more. This cost includes various medical procedures, lab tests, medications, and follow-up consultations. Additionally, some clinics may offer packages that include multiple IVF cycles or additional services such as egg or sperm freezing. It is important to note that the cost of IVF can be a significant financial burden for many couples, and insurance coverage for infertility treatments may vary. Therefore, it is important to discuss the cost and payment options with the clinic before starting the treatment.

The number of injections required during IVF treatment can vary depending on the individual specific treatment plan and medical needs. However, typically, women undergoing IVF treatment will require several injections of hormones to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. The specific type and amount of hormone injections will be determined by the doctor, based on factors such as the woman age, medical history, and fertility test results. On average, women can expect to take injections for 8-14 days, with 1-2 injections per day. The injections can be self-administered at home after proper instructions and training from the healthcare provider.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) treatment carries a higher risk compared to natural conception due to several factors. Firstly, the use of fertility drugs can cause side effects and complications such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Secondly, there is a risk of multiple pregnancies, which can lead to complications such as premature birth and low birth weight. Thirdly, the process of egg retrieval carries a slight risk of infection, bleeding, and anaesthesia-related complications. Finally, the use of assisted reproductive technology can also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. However, the risks associated with IVF can be minimised through careful monitoring and expert medical care.
