Overcome Infertility and Build Your Family

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an Assisted Reproductive Technology for treating infertility. Due to various reasons eg. unhealthy eggs, unhealthy and non-motile sperms, no proper ovulation cycle the chances of fertility decreases and IVF is significantly carried for the female who is not able to carry out fertilization within her. This procedure is done outside of the body.

Some tests will be recommended for the couple and if the female has no or low ovulation, then she will be administered with drugs to stimulate ovulation. Till the follicles reach a desired size injections are given and then eggs are retrieved from the ovaries. The matured eggs are injected in healthy, motile sperms by another method called Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). In this procedure, a single sperm is directly injected into a single egg. This injected egg will be kept carefully in a Petri dish in the laboratory till the fertilization has occurred.

Soon after the fertilization has occurred, the embryo is transferred into the woman’s uterus to treat for a successful pregnancy. After transferring the embryos it will attach to the uterine wall. If the process fails, again the process IVF proceeds.

Our vast knowledge and experience ensure high success rates of live birth for parents with artificial reproductive technique. The high-end equipment and facilities available at our hospitals provide prompt reports and treatments. 

Depends on the age we divide the pregnancy chances in IVF as
  • Women aged 35 and below – The chances of pregnancy are between 35-50 percent.
  • Women aged between 35 and 38 – Chances go down to about 20-25 percent.
  • Women aged between 38 to 41 years – Chances of 10%.
