It is the advanced technique of combining egg and sperm in their laboratoric conditions. It is one of the costly procedure. The fertilized embryo is implanted on to the uterus. Thousands of babies have been born through IVF since 1978, the year in which this procedure invented.

The IVF procedure involves the following steps:

  • Retrieval of eggs and sperm collection
  • Fertilization and embryo transfer

Success Rate ?

Success rates for IVF depend on various factors such as condition, age, location of procedure. IVF in younger ages may have improved success rate as the egg produced in the younger ages may be more healthy.

Anything which occurs outside the body is called In Vitro and when Fertilization of egg with sperm occurs outside the body and then 
transfered inside the Uterus.The first In Vitro fertilization was done in the test tube and that is why it is popularly known as test tube baby. 
Test tube baby procedure start by taking various tests also. Conventional IVF involves surgically retrieving eggs from the ovary and coupling them with sperm in the laboratory to create embryos.There are many different type of Fertility treatments available related to this.

Best Infertility Treatments- Stop Worrying About Infertility

There are many different types of fertility treatments available for most budgets of those couples who want to try to have a baby. Some of the treatments are invasive and painful, and some are extremely expensive, so often it is difficult to receive the type of treatment that you think will work best in your particular case because of budget constraints.

Azoospermia- This is a condition in which spermatozoa are not present in the seminal fluid.
• Low sperm motility - Sometimes, though enough sperm is present in the semen, they may not have the ability to move as required towards the egg. Sometimes low sperm count may also result in low sperm motility. This may also cause infertility
• Obstruction in reproductive tract
• Deficiency of certain hormones

Endometriosis - This is a condition in which the endometrial cells of the uterus strive outside the cavity and in most cases on the membrane lining the abdomen. • PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian syndrome is a common condition among women which may cause infertility in most women and even can cause other complications in pregnancy.
• Problems in ovulation - Irregular menstruation results in anovulation or too frequent ovulation which results in infertility.
• Poor quality of the egg.

There are many methods to treat infertility. Some include:

This is where eggs are extracted from the woman, sperm from the man and the two are combined in a laboratory. Once embryos have formed, they may all be implanted, or some may be discarded. The main issue with IVF process is the prospect that all implanted embryos will survive, so the expectant parents may have multiple children, which can be a major challenge, financially as well as emotionally. The cost of ivf India can be 50- to 70% lower than the cost in US or UK, making trip to India a value for money proposition.

This is a procedure that is similar to IVF; however, the sperm is injected directly into the egg, not left to fertilize the egg in a petri dish. ICSI procedure is often used when the quantity and motility of the sperm are major factors. It ensures fertilization rather than leaving it to chance.

Your fertility specialist will monitor you to determine when you are ovulating. At that specific point in time, or as close to it as possible, you will attend at the specialist's office with your partner. A sperm sample will be collected and washed (to obtain the highest concentration of sperm possible), then that sample will be injected directly into the woman.

Approximately 15 percent of couples are infertile. This means they aren't able to conceive a child even though they've had frequent, unprotected sexual intercourse for a year or longer. In about half of these couples, male infertility plays a role.

Male infertility is due to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors can play a role in causing male infertility.

Not being able to conceive a child can be stressful and frustrating, but a number of male infertility treatments are available.

The production of sperm is a complex process and requires normal functioning of the testicles (testes) as well as the hypothalamus and pituitary glands — organs in your brain that produce hormones that trigger sperm production. Once sperm are produced in the testicles, delicate tubes transport them until they mix with semen and are ejaculated out of the penis. Problems with any of these systems can affect sperm production. Also, there are problems of abnormal sperm shape (morphology) or movement ….(motility). Often the cause of low sperm count isn't ever identified.

Being overweight ,Having certain past or present infections, Being exposed to toxins ,Overheating the testicles, Having a prior vasectomy or vasectomy reversal ,Being born with a fertility disorder or having a blood relative with a fertility disorder ,Having certain medical conditions, including tumors and chronic illnesses Undergoing cancer treatments, such as surgery or radiation ,Taking certain medications, Performing prolonged activities such as bicycling or horseback riding, especially on a hard seat or poorly adjusted bicycle can cause oligospermia., Antibodies that attack sperm. Undescended testicles. Hormone imbalances., Sperm duct defects, Chromosome defects. Celiac disease, Environmental causes, Industrial chemicals, Heavy metal exposure can cause Low sperm count
strategies suggested or proposed for avoiding male infertility include the following:
  • Avoiding smoking as it damages sperm DNA
  • Avoiding heavy marijuana and alcohol use.
  • Avoiding excessive heat to the testes.
When participating in contact sports, wear an Protective Cup and Jockstrap to protect the testicles. Sports such as Baseball, Football, Cricket, Lacrosse, Hockey, Softball, Paintball, Rodeo, Motorcross, Wrestling, Soccer, Karate or other Martial Arts or any sport where a ball, foot, arm, knee or bat can come into contact with the groin.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure for treating infertility. The procedure for intrauterine insemination is straightforward; it takes about 15 to 20 minutes and is usually done in a doctor's office or clinic. Sperm that have been "washed" and concentrated are placed directly in your uterus on the day after your ovary releases one or more eggs to be fertilized. The hoped-for outcome of intrauterine insemination is for the sperm to swim into the fallopian tubes and fertilize a waiting egg, resulting in a normal pregnancy.

Depending on the reasons for infertility, intrauterine insemination can be coordinated with your normal cycle or done in conjunction with fertility medications., for Mild male factor infertility (subfertility)., Cervical factor infertility ,Semen allergy ,Unexplained infertility.
IUI can be done for 6 cycles, if a couple fail to conceive in 6 cycles, Patient should undergo ICSI to overcome their problems.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Before a man's sperm can fertilize a woman's egg, the head of the sperm has to attach to the outside of the egg. Then it pushes through the outer layer of the egg to the inside of the egg (cytoplasm). Sometimes the sperm cannot penetrate the outer layer. A procedure called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can help fertilize the egg by injecting the sperm directly into the egg.
In traditional IVF(In Vitro Fertilization), the sperm are mixed with the woman's egg in a laboratory. If ICSI is needed, a small needle is used to inject a sperm into the center of the egg. The fertilized egg grows in a laboratory for one to five days, and then it is placed in the woman's uterus (womb).
ICSI helps to overcome a man's fertility problems, for instance:
  • He may produce too few sperm
  • His sperm may be not be shaped correctly or move in a normal fashion
  • The sperm may have trouble attaching to the egg
  • A blockage in his reproductive tract may keep sperm from getting out
ICSI can also be used when the use of traditional IVF has not produced fertilization, regardless of the condition of the sperm.
Once fertilization takes place, a couple's chance of giving birth to a single baby, twins, or triplets is the same if they have IVF with or without ICSI.
Having a low sperm count decreases the odds that one of your sperm will fertilize your partner's egg, resulting in pregnancy. Nonetheless, many men who have a low sperm count are still able to father a child.

Azoospermia :

The most severe expression of male factor infertility is azoospermia, where no sperm are present in the ejaculate. Azoospermia is found in 15-20% of men evaluated for infertility. Causes of azoospermia include congenital and acquired reproductive tract obstruction as well as spermatogenic failure.

The approach to azoospermic patient has changed significantly with the introduction of sperm retrieval techniques and assisted reproduction, especially IFV/ ICSI. Nevertheless, specific treatment of azoospermia remains not only successful but also a cost-effective option.

Can a Child Give You a Happy Life ????

A few months ago some researchers from Denmark published a study demonstrating that childlessness in women is associated with a four-fold increased rate of death and a two-fold increased rate of death in men.
IVF is far and away the most common of the high-tech fertility treatments, accounting for more than 99 percent of all assisted reproductive technology procedures. About 48,000 IVF babies are born each year in the United States.In Vitro Fertilization is commonly referred to as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. When the IVF procedure is successful, the process is combined with a procedure known asembryo transfer, which involves physically placing the embryo in the uterus.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Test-tube baby is a process in which eggs are taken out from woman's ovaries and then fertilized with sperms in a fluid medium in the laboratory. The fertilization procedure depends on semen parameters like sperm count, motility, morphology etc. Eggs are placed with motile sperm overnight in conventional IVF.

For women in whom first-line fertility treatments have been unsuccessful or who have other situations or conditions, in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be the treatment of choice. IVF was originally developed for women with tubal factor infertility (non-functioning fallopian tubes); however, because of major advances in in vitro fertilization, IVF is not always the treatment of last resort. In fact, it is often the first-line treatment.

IVF is often the treatment of choice for couples in who are experiencing male factor infertility, particularly with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), a procedure in which one sperm is injected directly into the egg. 

There are some steps in IVF process which include the following:
  • Monitor and stimulate the development of healthy egg(s) in the ovaries.
  • Collect the eggs.
  • Secure the sperm.
  • Combine the eggs and sperm together in the laboratory and provide the appropriate environment for fertilization and early embryo growth.

Success rates 

The success rate of IVF clinics depends on a number of factors including patient characteristics and treatment approaches.

30 to 35% for women under age 35 
25% for women ages 35 to 37 
15 to 20% for women ages 38 to 40 
6 to 10% for women ages over 40

IVF success rates are the percentage of all IVF procedures which result in a favorable outcome. Depending on the type of calculation used, this outcome may represent the number of confirmed pregnancies, called the pregnancy rate or number of live births, called the live birth rate.
