IVF Treatment In Mumbai
What Is IVF Treatment?
IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization. It is a modern Assisted Reproductive Technology(ART) based procedure. It involves a sequence of procedures that help in conception. During IVF, mature eggs are retrieved from a woman’s ovaries and fertilized with sperms in a lab, providing favorable conditions for fertilization and embryo formation.
When the embryo is formed, it is passed through necessary diagnostic scans to check for abnormalities. Finally, a viable embryo is implanted in the uterus through a minimally invasive procedure. The woman is asked to take a pregnancy test twelve to fifteen days after implantation to see results. Based on the results, our Best IVF doctors in Mumbai decide further steps.
IVF is commonly known as the test-tube baby method. Since the fertilization takes place in a petri dish outside the body (in-vitro), it is called In-Vitro Fertilization treatment.
IVF treatment is a long procedure that requires partners to support each other. Typically, IVF is recommended either to any aged couple with very little chance of conception or to a couple who has tried for a natural pregnancy for at least two years.
Step 1 : Initial Diagnosis
Once you have decided to opt for IVF treatment at our IVF center in Mumbai, our doctors ask the couple for a detailed evaluation to assess the health of the uterus, ovaries, and semen quality. We use some of the most advanced diagnostic technologies imported from the USA, Germany, Japan, etc., to get the most accurate diagnosis. After a thorough examination, our team plans a tailored IVF cycle that is best suitable for the couple.
Step 2 : Ovaries Stimulation
As a preliminary step, the doctor provides the woman some ovary stimulating medications to produce multiple eggs during ovulation. Typically, the ovaries produce one egg during each menstrual cycle, but doctors prescribe these medications to harvest more eggs to increase the chances of fertilization. The egg production via ovary stimulation is monitored with ultrasound scans and blood tests.
Step 3 : Eggs & Sperm Retrieval
It is a simple, minimally invasive procedure in which a fine needle or catheter is inserted into the ovaries via the vagina with the help of an ultrasound guiding device to collect the eggs. The process is done very carefully to protect eggs from damage. It is done with anesthesia to avoid pain and inconvenience, but minor blood loss due to scratching of uterus walls is possible.
Meanwhile, the male partner is asked to provide a semen sample on the same day of egg retrieval. Some sperm cells are isolated and tested for their motility, morphology, and chromosomal normality. Then, a sample of about 50,000 sperms is prepared for further procedure.
Step 4 : Fertilization
After the successful egg and semen retrieval, they are allowed to fertilize in a petri dish in the lab’s conducive atmosphere. In case of issues in semen such as low sperm count or inadequate sperm motility, another technique called ICSI is used where a viable or healthy sperm cell is directly injected into a healthy egg. Typically, multiple eggs are fertilized to increase the chances of embryo formation in the incubation period.
Step 5 : Embryo transfer
Once stable embryos form, a preliminary embryo scan is performed to check for any abnormalities. The healthy embryos are transferred or implanted in the female partner’s womb with the help of a catheter. The procedure is painless and done with mild sedatives.
Step 6 : Pregnancy Confirmation
The female partner is asked to test for pregnancy twelve to fifteen days after implantation. The period between implantation to conception is very crucial. We have some of the best IVF doctors in Mumbai who carefully guide the couple through this period with lifestyle tips and instructions. The next steps are planned after confirmation of results.
