What is IVF ?


IVF stands for in vitro fertilization. It’s one of the more widely known types of assisted reproductive technology (ART). IVF works by using a combination of medicines and surgical procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg, and help the fertilized egg implant in your uterus. First, the patient takes medication that makes several of their eggs mature and ready for fertilization. Then the doctor takes the eggs out of the body and mixes them with sperm in a lab, to help the sperm fertilize the eggs. Then they put 1 or more fertilized eggs (embryos) directly into the uterus. Pregnancy happens if any of the embryos implants in the lining of the uterus.

IVF has many steps, and it takes several months to complete the whole process. It sometimes works on the first try, but many people need more than 1 round of IVF to get pregnant. IVF definitely increases the chances of pregnancy if the patient is having fertility problems, but there’s no guarantee — everyone’s body is different and IVF won’t work for everyone.

Steps Of IVF


Step 1: Ovulation Induction

Before and during the IVF process, The fertility specialist will monitor the ovaries and the timing of the egg release. The doctor will make sure that the ovaries are producing eggs, and that hormone levels are normal, among other procedures. Most women take fertility medicines or hormones at this time to stimulate the ovaries to produce one or more eggs. Having several eggs available for IVF will increase the chances that the woman will get pregnant. If a woman cannot produce any eggs, she can talk to the doctor about donor eggs for the IVF process.

Step 2: Egg Retrieval

During this step in the IVF process, pain medication is given to reduce any discomfort. Then a very thin needle is passed through the upper vaginal wall. With the use of vaginal ultrasound, fluid is removed from the follicles under gentle suction. Immediately after aspiration of the follicle, the oocyte (egg) is isolated from the follicular fluid. The egg is placed in a culture dish containing nutrient media and then transferred to the incubator.


Step 3: Fertilization

The next step of the IVF process is the fertilization of the egg. A sperm sample is secured, either from the partner or a donor, and the most active sperm is mixed with the egg in a special chamber. Sometimes the sperm is directly injected into the egg. Then, the sperm and egg are placed in an incubator and monitored to make sure that a healthy embryo develops.The fertilized eggs are called zygotes and are cultured in a specially formulated culture medium that supports their growth.

Step 4: Embryo Transfer and Implantation

The final step of the IVF process is the embryo transfer. First, the embryos are examined to select the healthiest ones for transfer. To transfer the embryo(s), a speculum is placed into your vagina and the embryo(s) are transferred via a small plastic tube placed through the cervix into the uterine cavity. After the IVF process is complete, bed rest is often advised for around 24 hours. Embryo transfer is a simple procedure that does not require any anesthesia.

There are a number of factors involved in determining if a patient is suitable for IVF treatment. Appropriate candidates often include couples who may experience:
  • Low sperm counts
  • Endometriosis
  • Problems with the uterus or fallopian tubes
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Sperm unable to penetrate or survive in the cervical mucus
  • Other health or unexplained reproductive issues
The only way to know for sure if in vitro fertilization is right for you is to undergo a complete exam and consultation with Dr. Trolice and the Fertility CARE staff.
Yes. Your doctor will recommend that you adhere to the basic guidelines below during the IVF process and into your pregnancy.
  • No Smoking
  • No Drinking
  • No Medications
  • No Vigorous exercise
  • Herbal Supplements are completely prohibited during the IVF process.
The in vitro fertilization process can last anywhere from four to six weeks prior to egg retrieval. The embryo(s) will then be implanted between two to five days afterward. Not all patients are successful on their first IVF attempt; in fact, it’s not uncommon for patients to go through multiple IVF cycles before finally becoming pregnant.
According to national statistics from the Center for Disease Control, the average IVF success rates using one’s own eggs begins to drop around age thirty and dips rapidly in the mid-30s and early 40s, due to lower egg quantity and quality. At Fertility CARE, our success rates consistently beat the national average. In addition to age, success rates with IVF vary with respect to one’s height, weight, infertility diagnosis, sperm count, and reproductive histories, such as the previous number of pregnancies, miscarriages and births.
