What is IVF - In Vitro Fertilization?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The procedure is used to help women conceive in situations where conception isn’t possible due to infertility.

How does IVF work?

IVF is the process of manually fertilizing eggs by extracting the eggs, obtaining a semen sample, and combining these. Several embryos are obtained from this process. These are transferred to the uterus where implantation occurs. More than one embryo can be implanted to account for the fact that not all will develop into a pregnancy.

It is possible to freeze some of the embryos for transferal at a later time.

IVF - In Vitro Fertilization Treatment Duration

The initial IVF process – before eggs are extracted – happens in cycles. Each cycle can last a few weeks to allow time for consultation, to administer fertility medication, and for the egg to develop.

It takes about 3 – 5 days for the fertilized eggs to develop into embryos.

What are IVF - In Vitro Fertilization Risks?

A small number of people may experience side effects to the hormones administered at the start of IVF to stimulate egg production.

Possible side effects include:

  • Headaches 
  • Mood swings 
  • Abdominal pain 
  • Hot flashes 
  • Abdominal bleeding 
  • Very rarely ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome 

Seek medical advice if you experience more serious symptoms.

A low level of risk is associated with IVF. Patients are usually able to resume day-to-day activities a day after the treatment.

Possible side effects include:

  • Passing a small amount of blood 
  • Mild cramping 
  • Mild bloating 
  • Constipation 
  • Breast tenderness 
  • Ectopic pregnancy could occur after embryo transfer – if you experience the more severe symptoms associated with an ectopic pregnancy, you should urgently seek medical attention 

Seek medical attention for more severe symptoms.

IVF - In Vitro Fertilization Statistics

On average, nearly 30% of women achieve pregnancy and about 23% result in live births (CDC Report, 2009).

A woman's age and the reason for infertility can influence the success rate.

The outcome of IVF depends on multiple factors, especially the reason for infertility and the patients ages.
The data is as follows for the live birth of 1 baby or more:

  • 34 years and under: 40% success rate
  • 35 - 37 years: 31% success rate
  • 38 - 40 years: 21% success rate
  • 41 - 42 years: 11% success rate
  • 43 years and over: 5% success rate

The easiest of all though would be to rent a car.
