Why IVF is used?
IVF can be used to infertility of the following conditions:

- Women who have had their fallopian tubes removed

- Unexplained infertility

- Male factor infertility including decreased sperm count or sperm motility
In IVF there are five basic steps and embryo transfer process:
Step 1: To stimulate the egg production Fertility medications are prescribed. Blood test samples are taken to check hormone levels and a transvaginal ultrasound is used to examine the ovaries.
Step 2: The eggs are retrieved using a hollow needle which is guided by an ultrasound imaging and is inserted through the pelvic cavity. Medication is provided to reduce and remove potential discomfort.
Step 3: The male is asked to produce a sample of sperm, which is prepared for combining with the eggs.
Step 4: The sperm and eggs are mixed together and stored in a laboratory dish to encourage fertilization by a process called insemination. In some cases, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be used where there is a lower probability of fertilization. To confirm that fertilization and cell division are taking place the eggs are monitored and the fertilized eggs are considered embryos once this occurs.
Step 5: Three to five days following egg retrieval and fertilization, the embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus. To transfer the embryos, a catheter or small tube is inserted into the uterus. The implantation typically occurs around six to ten days following egg retrieval, if the procedure is successful.
