Infertility has become a common problem. There is nothing to hide and be embarrassed about. Couples having problem in conceiving a baby even after having unprotected intercourse for over a year are often recommended to go for the in vitro fertilisation or IVF treatment.

Due to lack of awareness about IVF, couples usually feel scary and stressful. However, the fact is, over 8 million babies have been born until now through the IVF procedure. Therefore, it is important for couples to be honest while having a conversation with the IVF therapist during infertility counselling.

Asking questions can help you reduce your anxiety and apprehension about the IVF treatment. The blog mentions ten significant questions to ask a fertility therapist before undergoing IVF treatment.

Should you try to conceive naturally if test results appear normal?


The answer to this question depends on multiple factors that include your partner’s age, your age, the time you have been trying to conceive, the treatment you have got thus far, your reports, and any past treatment that may affect the fertility potential. The IVF therapist will consider all these things to recommend whether you should continue to try to conceive naturally or go for the IVF treatment.

 

What are the recommended tests I have to get before IVF?


Depending on the current health condition of yours, the fertility therapist may order some blood tests to check your blood sugar levels, Hb, blood group, any infections, et al. Besides, the specialist may also order some fertility tests for women to check ovulation status, probability of PCOS, ovarian reserve, and the like. The male partner may also have to take blood tests to check the blood group and infections along with semen analysis for the IVF treatment.

 

What is the success rate of the clinic when it comes to births and conception?


Knowing about the live birth and pregnancy rate will give you a fair idea of the clinic’s experience, credibility, and standards. However, the success chances depend on multiple factors and vary from individual to individual but asking this question is important.

 

What are my chances of success if I go for IVF?


The IVF therapist can predict the success rate only after studying about different factors like age, sperm quality, cause of infertility, uterine lining, ovarian reserve, and so on.

 

Is there any way to improve the probability of success in IVF?


The fertility specialist may probably suggest making significant changes to the lifestyle that include attaining healthy BMI, avoiding smoking and drinking, reducing stress levels, having a healthy diet, and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle.

 

How long does IVF take?


It differs from case to case. However, knowing about timeline and approach helps in setting clear expectations from the beginning of the treatment. It basically gives a rough idea about the time that an IVF cycle may take.

 

Are there any side-effects?


It again varies from case to case. Make sure you ask this question during the infertility counselling.

 

Do you provide support in odd hours?


Asking this question is crucial. Even though IVF is a safe procedure, you need to ask if the clinic provides support in case of any emergency. Ask if they have any 24×7 emergency helpline number.

 

Are there other options after IVF if it fails?


As mentioned before, the success chances depend on many factors. Therefore, ask the IVF therapist what would happen if the treatment does not succeed.

 

What is the cost of IVF treatment?


Last but not the least, the cost is also an important factor that cannot be overlooked. Therefore, when having an infertility counselling session with an IVF therapist, make sure you are clear with the cost of the treatment.

As they say, knowledge is power, make sure you get your doubts cleared when having a session with a fertility therapist. Besides the aforementioned list of questions, ask whatever you think is important to ask so that you can confidently make your decision.
