You should consult fertility doctors in Auranagabad to see what needs to be done about the situation. Once the doctor diagnoses you or your partner or both of you of infertility, you need to find the exact cause of the issue.
A Common Treatment For Infertility Depending on what is the reason behind the infertility, your doctor may recommend you a suitable treatment. Initially, you should try out the less invasive options and see if it works for you. For example, you can start with specific medications prescribed by your doctor. If other treatments are failing and you are still unable to conceive, you should consider IVF treatment.
IVF is usually the first treatment option considered in typical cases like when you are using an egg donor, when there is blockage in the woman’s fallopian tubes or when the male fertility is severe. It is a form of Assisted Reproductive Technology, which also includes IUI and ovulation induction. Nowadays, it is a commonly used infertility treatment in Auranagabad.
In general, IVF treatment is successful a lot of times, although it may take over a single try to finally achieve pregnancy. There have been studies that indicate that the chances of successful pregnancy through IVF is approximately same for the first four cycles.
Dealing With Infertility- A Stressful Experience Despite all of that, a treatment like this can be a nerve-wracking and stressful experience. You can easily get overwhelmed by everything involved in the entire process. There is an entire schedule that involves injections, blood work, ultrasounds and so on. You will also have to take fertility drugs, which can change moods as well. Both you and your partner are likely to have a hard time dealing with infertility issues.
With so much involved, it is only natural to have a few questions about the treatment. You can consider talking to our IVF specialist in Auranagabad to know more about the process. You should start with the treatment only when you have all your answers.
The Historical Background of IVF It was in 1978 in England when the first successful treatment was done for achieving pregnancy. The treatment was done by Doctor Patrick Steptoe and Doctor Robert Edwards. Now, after more than 40 years, IVF is widely accepted to be a standard procedure which can be used for treating infertility. In many cases, it is used as first-line option for treatment. Over the years, the procedure has resulted in birth of over a million babies all across the world.
Do you require IVF treatment? Women who have missing or blocked fallopian tubes should consider IVF treatment. In fact, in this case, it is the best option available and doctors usually recommend the treatment. It can also be a favorable option with some other conditions, such as male factor infertility and endometriosis. In some cases, when a medical reason for infertility cannot be determined, IVF is used for treating the unexplained infertility. Visit our fertility centre in Auranagabad to know if you require the treatment. What should be your age limit for undergoing the treatment
The outcome of the treatment is largely dependent on the age of the female involved. It plays an important role in determining whether IVF will result in successful pregnancy or not, particularly if the concerned’ woman’s eggs are being used. There is often a specific upper age limit beyond which in vitro fertilization cannot be performed with own egg of the woman.
Generally, the age limit tends to be around 42-45 years old. Even when you are using donor eggs, the age of the woman donating the egg is an important factor. In case of egg donors, the probability of success is not majorly affected by the recipient’s egg. In fact, there have been instances of successful pregnancy among women aged over 60 as well.
What does the process actually involve? This is the main question- what does test tube baby treatment in Auranagabad involve? All women and couples seeking infertility treatment have the same question. The procedure is rather complex. That is why before you undergo IVF treatment, you can have a consulting session with our specialists. You will be explained the entire procedure, including assessments that need to be performed before the treatment starts.
You will be instructed on fertility medications and timing of administration when you start a treatment cycle. This is basically taking hormones for stimulating production of eggs in the ovaries. Then, eggs are taken out of the ovaries with the help of transvaginal needle aspiration, using ultrasound. The collected eggs are then placed alongside sperm in petri dish, allowing fertilization to take place. Some of the eggs ultimately result in formation of embryos.
Once the embryos are formed, it is transferred back to the uterus at our IVF clinic in Auranagabad. For this, a small plastic tube is used. At times, some of the embryos can be stored by freezing for future transfer. Pregnancy is successful when the transferred embryo implants on the uterine walls. In some cases, ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) may also be used. This form of IVF is a bit different and rather sophisticated. With such cases, a single sperm is injected into the egg. It is particularly a useful treatment of the quality of the sperm is poor itself.
Transferring One or Multiple Embryos The decision on whether to transfer a single embryo or multiple embryos is completely up to the patient. There is no assurance that each of the embryo transferred will result in a child. It is actually an easy way of increasing the chances of a successful pregnancy after a single IVF cycle. However, you must also know that the chances of multiple pregnancy is also higher when more than one embryo is transferred.
No matter what you choose to do, you will get full assistance at our IVF hospital in Auranagabad. In general, however, how many embryos to transfer should be decided depending on the age of the patient. Also, the number times you have previously tried IVF treatment has to be considered. If you are aged below 35 and haven’t ever tried IVF previously, it is advisable to transfer 2 embryos.
How To Improve Chances Of Pregnancy Through IVF Treatment? For the best chances of successful pregnancy, our IVF doctors in Auranagabad recommend avoiding tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, certain medications. You should also try to maintain the right BMI and lose weight if necessary. Taking folic acid and having an overall balanced diet can also be helpful. Starting IVF treatment early is recommended as age is a crucial factor determining the chances of success.
When To Test For Pregnancy After The Treatment After around two weeks of the embryo transfer, a blood test should be carried out for checking whether the treatment has been successful or not. If the test is indeed successful, the first scan for pregnancy is done after two weeks. If the result is negative, you should talk to the doctor. You may have to decide on whether you should take the test again or not.
When To Start The Next Cycle? In medical terms, it is actually possible to start the next cycle immediately after the previous cycle’s results are out. However, you may be advised to take a break of a few weeks or months. After all, it is a stressful experience.
Would You Need To be Hospitalized? If you are undergoing IVF treatment, you won’t have to be hospitalized. The entire process can be carried out at our IVF centre in Auranagabad itself. When the egg production is being monitored, you would have to visit the centre around 3 to 5 times.
