Every month, a woman (of reproductive age) has a 25% chance of getting pregnant naturally. But for some women, their luck needs a medical boost to start a pregnancy.
When a couple suffers from an infertility problem, they should start by consulting a specialist who specializes infertility. It determines if the couple is ready to go, because there are many stages during IVF. It can take a long time and affect morale of the couple. If all the signals are green, the specialist prescribes a workup to assess the quality of the sperm, the state of the uterus and the ovulation cycle. Because IVF will consist of collecting a maximum of mature oocytes to put them in contact with a large number of sperm so that fertilization takes place.

Stage 1: Ovarian stimulation
A woman's ovaries produce and release a single mature fertilizable egg per menstrual cycle, which is enough to try to conceive naturally. For IVF, we will try to produce more mature eggs. For this, it is necessary to stimulate the ovarian activity of women, shared the best IVF doctor in Gulbarga.
She will, therefore, have to undergo treatment which has a double objective:
• Avoid spontaneous ovulation, which will automatically stop IVF as it will prevent accurate determination of the correct time to collect the oocytes.
• Produce several follicles, in which the oocytes will develop.
• The treatment starts with a blocking phase. The patient will absorb hormones that will help control the pituitary gland (a gland in the brain) by nasal spray or subcutaneous injection to prevent ovulation from occurring.
Then, the patient goes to the stimulation phase. She will receive injections of hormones which will be used for the development of follicles. This period is monitored by ultrasound of the ovaries.

Stage 2: Ovulation trigger
When we are sure that there are 2 to 3 follicles, which measure between 16 to 22 mm, we inject the third hormone to trigger ovulation. This time is important because ovulation takes place normally 32 to 38 hours later and will define the appointment to collect the oocytes, as suggested by the best IVF doctor in Gulbarga.
Stage 3: Oocyte retrieval
The sample is taken in an operating room. The patient may receive local or general anaesthesia. This procedure requires a short hospital stay. For the puncture, the doctor will first visualize the follicles, by ultrasound, and then will use a suitable needle on a vaginal probe to go and aspirate them. Then, the biologist will immediately examine the liquid to count the oocytes collected. There, he selects those who are ready to be fertilized and will then store them in a box which will be cultured in an incubator (internal temperature of the human body).
The puncture may lead to bleeding or painful abdominal bloating for the following days, so rest is recommended, stated by the leading IVF doctor from the IVF clinic in Gulbarga.
Stage 4: Fertilization
In the laboratory, we recover the sperm vial which was collected earlier (most of the time, 36 hours before the onset of ovulation). It may have been collected by masturbation or, more rarely, by surgical procedure when the partner has semen that contains too few sperm.
The meeting can then begin. Each of the retrieved oocytes will be placed in the presence of mobile spermatozoa (between 50,000 and 100,000) before being replaced in an incubator, still at 37 ° C. There, the sperm will court the oocyte by turning around. But only one will succeed in penetrating it to fertilize it, stated the leading IVF specialist in Gulbarga centre of Indira IVF, the finest IVF hospital in Gulbarga.
ICSI: Injection of sperm into the oocyte-
In case of male infertility, if the sperm are not numerous enough, mobile or well-formed, we use the ICSI technique. It will allow you to select a single sperm to inject it directly into the oocyte. Unfortunately, with these manipulations, approximately 10% of oocytes do not resist injection because their membrane is too fragile.
Since the meeting between the oocyte and the sperm, we now speak of an embryo. It is made up of a cell at the start and has 4 cells two days later. It can now be placed in the patient. But it is also possible to extend its passage in the laboratory for 5 days. There, the embryo is made up of 150 to 200 cells and can develop and adapt more easily. However, barely half of the fertilized oocytes reach this stage.
Stage 5: Embryo transfer
There is no need for anesthesia or hospitalization at this stage. It is a painless procedure. Placed in the gynecological position, the embryo will be placed via a catheter and then the patient will have to lie down for 30 minutes.
After the transfer
Embryo transferdoes not mean embryo implantation. The embryos are just placed in the uterine cavity. If they continue their development they will then settle, or nest, 4 or 5 days later. However, only 10% of the embryos transferred on the second day of culture nest, and 20% of those which have been in prolonged culture.
Ideally you have to wait 12 days after the transfer to undergo a pregnancy test. Then head to the laboratory for a blood test. If it is successful, the mother will have to undergo an ultrasound examination 1 month after the transfer, to confirm the pregnancy.
Otherwise the menses occur on average 14 days after the date of puncture. Failure can be traumatic, but keep in mind that although an embryo is perfect, the pregnancy rate does not exceed 30%. So do not despair. The couple must take the time to grieve. Then he can make an appointment for another IVF again. Because even if it did not work this time, the treatment allowed specialists to know more about the reproductive functioning of the couple and to be able to adapt to it with even more precision for the next one.
