What Is IVF?
IVF is a way for families facing fertility struggles to have a baby with the help of modern medical technology. With IVF, a mother’s egg is fertilized outside her body for it to become an embryo prior to implantation into the womb. For this to happen, an egg, or multiple eggs, is taken from the mother’s uterus, and then it is fertilized with the intended father’s sperm to be later transplanted into the mother’s, or surrogate’s, womb.
The IVF Procedure
Depending on your unique circumstances, our medical professionals may recommend beginning an IVF program with a fertility medication. This medication stimulates the production of eggs and increases your chances of obtaining a viable and successful pregnancy. These eggs are moved from the mother’s ovaries to be fertilized with the father’s sperm in a sterile location. They will then incubate for a short period of time, typically a few days, while being monitored for growth. Once they are ready, they will then be transplanted into the womb.
Why Choose IVF?
Many women and couples choose IVF for a variety of reasons, but the goal remains the same: to have a baby. The New Life team is here to answer any questions, and we always recommend speaking with our medical professionals to discuss your needs before deciding to move forward with any program, including IVF. Common reasons for choosing IVF include:
- Blocked or removed fallopian tubes
- Irregular ovulation cycles
- Male factor infertility
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
Risks of IVF
The risks associated with IVF are very minimal when the procedure is performed by a skilled professional, and the success rate of the procedure is very high. When you choose IVF to start or grow your family, you are choosing a safe and reliable procedure that is now a common fertility solution for achieving dreams of parenthood.
IVF vs. ICSI
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is very similar to IVF, but the way the sperm is introduced to the egg is different. With IVF, the sperm and the egg are placed together in a dish where they will spontaneously fertilize. With ICIS, the sperm and the egg are manually fertilized with the sperm injected directly into the egg. This procedure is performed by an experienced professional under a microscope to mitigate any risk of harm to the future child.
Both IVF and ICSI need an incubation period before the embryo is transplanted into the womb. While ICSI may be recommended in some cases to increase the chances of obtaining a successful pregnancy, both procedures have similar success rates and outcomes. Because neither is necessarily superior over the other, you should speak with your medical professional about your unique circumstances to decide which is right for you.
