What is IVF?
Let us introduce you to this revolutionary technique which has blessed many childless couples with the gift of offspring. During the initial phase of the process, the woman is injected with gonadotrophin (fertility hormone) every two weeks for ovarian stimulation. Then with the help of general anaesthesia, a procedure called oocyte pickup is carried out, which involves ultrasound for retrieving ovum again. The ovum is kept safely in an incubator and a suitable technique for fertilization is devised. Either millions of sperms are kept for a single ova or the single sperm is injected with the help of an intracytoplasmic injection. After completion of this method, the fertilized egg is kept in the incubator for forming an embryo. Then the best embryo formed is chosen and implanted in the uterus. This process is called embryo transfer.

The success rate of the implanted embryo is determined by the inner lining of the uterus and foetus itself. If both coordinate successful within the uterus, then the process is considered to be successful. If the coordination is lacking, then the uterine lining sheds itself and the pregnancy is said to be terminated.
