Let’s know how the process of IVF is carried out at Indira IVF Gaya centre?
What is in vitro fertilization?
IVF consists of bringing the oocyte into contact with sperm in the laboratory - in vitro - in order to obtain good quality embryos which can be transferred to the uterus, hence resulting into a pregnancy.
In order to perform this procedure, the patient must undergo controlled hormonal stimulation to obtain the oocytes, which are then fertilized in vitro in the laboratory, where they remain in culture for a few days. One of the embryos is transferred to the uterine cavity and the rest is cryo-preserved for later use.
In which cases is it recommended?
IVF allows us to optimize the fertilization process when it is made difficult by other causes. This treatment is opted in the following cases:
- Women after several unsuccessful artificial inseminations.
- Women suffering from advanced endometriosis.
- Women from a certain age group with poor oocyte quality.
- Condition of damaged tubes or no tubes.
- Women with hydrosalpinx.
- In cases of preimplantation genetic study.
- In men with poor sperm quality
Different stages of IVF-
The IVF treatment begins with the first consultation in an IVF clinic, where our fertility specialists carry out an assessment of the patient, analyze their medical history and all reports concerning previous treatments. In addition, they perform a full gynaecological examination, accompanied by a semen analysis in the event that the partner's sperm has to be used. Thus, thanks to a personalized diagnosis, IVF guarantees to always recommend to its patients the treatment that best meets their needs, stated Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira clinic in Gaya).
The ovarian stimulation begins once back at home. It consists of daily injections that the patient can administer on her own, if desired. A woman naturally produces a single egg every month, but thanks to this hormonal treatment, which lasts 15 to 25 days in which a multifollicular growth is caused to develop several. This will then allow us to obtain several eggs, which will be fertilized and become embryos. The embryos are classified according to their quality, one/two is transferred to the patient's uterus and the rest is cryopreserved for later use, confirmed, Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira IVF centre in Gaya).
It is done in less than 20 minutes. It takes place in the operating room under sedation, in order to avoid any discomfort for the patient. The puncture is carried out by accessing the ovaries through the vaginal cavity, and each of the follicles is punctured. The liquid sucked from each follicle contains the eggs which will then be fertilized in the laboratory. After the procedure, the patient remains at rest for a while, and then she can leave and resume her usual routine the same day, said Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira IVF, IVF treatment in Gaya).
In vitro fertilization-
The next step is in vitro fertilization of the eggs, which can be carried out with partner or donor sperm.
This procedure can be performed with two different techniques.
- 1. IVF, which consists of placing each of the oocytes obtained by the puncture on drops of previously prepared sperm, so as to simulate the natural fertilization process in the culture slide.
- 2. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): This is a high-precision technique by which our embryologists individually select the best sperm and introduce them one by one inside each egg, stated Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira clinic in Gaya).
This process lasts between 5 to 6 days. Our embryologists are responsible for creating the necessary culture conditions for the embryos at each stage and, they observe and analyze their development to assess their quality at the same time.
In addition, thanks to time-lapse technology, it is possible to make an integral monitoring in real time which allows us to assess their quality in terms of morphology and other parameters like their capacity and division time. Thus, we have valuable additional information allowing us to rule out those who are not progressing well and therefore are not suitable for achieving pregnancy, shared Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira IVF Test tube baby centre in Gaya).
Best embryo transfer-
To perform an embryo transfer, you must first prepare the patient's uterus, while ensuring that the endometrium is of the appropriate thickness to accommodate the embryo and allow pregnancy.
It is performed in the operating room, but it is a quick and painless procedure, so it is an outpatient process without anesthesia, explained Dr. Varsha Shrivastava (Centre Head, Indira IVF, cost in Gaya).
Your IVF specialist will tell you the optimal date for carrying out a blood pregnancy test, which takes about 11 days after the transfer. You can live a very normal life during this time, but very strenuous activities are not recommended. If the result is positive, your usual gynaecologist will have a follow-up ultrasound after 20 days, after which your IVF treatment will be completed and he/she will continue your pregnancy monitoring.
