Processes Involved in the IVF Cycle – IVF Cycle Details


The IVF cycle is a systematic process involving a lot of processes aimed at treating infertility in the most organized and scientific manner, and requiring time to accomplish the expected results in the most appropriate and the safest manner. It starts with the woman’s menstrual cycle, continuing until the embryo transfer process, followed by pregnancy tests confirming pregnancy. Trusted IVF centers like IVF Spring ensure that the IVF cycle is carried out in the most utmost care, following due-diligence and adherence towards all the standard safety procedures. Hence, the IVF treatment is a completely safe, reliable and result-oriented process. Here’s more to the processes involved in IVF treatment.

It all begins with the menstruation process, controlling which, is done through birth control pills, based on the diagnosis that takes place. This is followed by the administration of daily injections called Lupron, in order to suppress the ovaries before stimulation and prepare the ovaries for egg extraction. This process continues for the first two weeks. As a result, many useful eggs are extracted to constitute a healthy embryo.

Next step is ovarian stimulation. It continues up to 8 days and involves injecting fertility medicines. The medicines, however, are prescribed by the examining doctor, based on the individual’s body requirements. An individual’s overall progress is monitored through the estrogen levels and the application of ultra sound tests.

Following ovarian stimulation is the egg extraction process. This involves retrieving the eggs from ovaries. However, this process involves anesthesia, and it does not cause pain or discomfort within the individual, thus making it a painless procedure.

On successful and adequate retrieval of eggs from the ovaries, the process is now introduced with sperms. Sperm samples, either the individual’s partner’s, or of the sperm donor are either collected a day or two before the egg retrieval process or taken on the day of egg retrieval. This step is followed by egg fertilization. Each egg is fertilized through a technique called Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). It takes three days for embryos to reach maturity levels sufficient for testing the genetic feasibility and/ or gender testing. On finding a high-quality embryo, doctors further take up the final transfer process.

The final transfer process involves transferring the high-quality embryo to the uterus through a tiny tube without anesthesia. Usually, this process takes place on the fifth day of the embryo growth.

The last stage is the pregnancy test which is scheduled by the fertility expert, and that is done through extraction of a blood sample. Once the test is positive, and the pregnancy is confirmed, the individual is handed-over to the gynecologist.
