Not all women and men are blessed to bear a child. Some have problematic conditions affecting their egg cells and sperm cells. If two cells fail to produce in a human body, the natural way of bearing a child can be shallow. It might be because of potential causes, such as:

  • Unhealthy egg and sperm cells
  • Impotence
  • Genetic problem

Male and female infertility has been alarming to men and women who have been together for years but can’t bear a child. What is the best solution to infertility issues?

In Vitro Fertilization

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a laboratory-tested medical procedure helping people or couples who struggle with fertility issues, such as developing a child. The process involves combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish (in vitro). Once fertilization occurs, the resulting embryo will be implanted into the uterus for potential pregnancy. The IVF process involves several steps:

  • Ovulation induction. The ovaries are stimulated using hormonal medications, producing multiple mature eggs. It is done to increase the chances of getting feasible eggs for fertilization.
  • Egg retrieval. Once the eggs are mature, a minor surgical procedure, an egg retrieval or egg aspiration is performed. The eggs are removed, using a thin needle, from the woman’s ovaries under ultrasound guidance.
  • Sperm collection. A sperm sample is collected from the male. The collected sperm is processed and in preparation for fertilization.
  • Fertilization. The eggs and sperm are combined, which facilitates fertilization. The process is done through traditional insemination, where sperm is placed near the eggs where a single sperm is directly injected into an egg.
  • Embryo culture. The fertilized eggs or embryos are cultured in a controlled environment, for a few days, up to 5 or 6. It allows them to develop and grow.
  • Embryo transfer. One or more possible embryos are selected for transfer into the uterus of a woman. It is done in 2 to 5 days after fertilization. The embryos transferred will depend on several factors, such as:
    • woman’s age
    • medical history
  • Pregnancy test. About ten to fourteen days after the embryo transfer. A pregnancy test is conducted. It helps determine if the procedure is successful and if a successful pregnancy resulted.

In Vitro Fertilization success rate

In Vitro Fertilization success rates can vary based on factors, such as:

  • The woman’s age
  • The cause of infertility
  • The quality of the embryos

In Vitro Fertilization may be recommended for various reasons, including:

  • blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
  • male infertility issues
  • unexplained infertility
  • certain medical conditions

In Vitro Fertilization can be emotionally and physically demanding, especially those who can’t bear a child. It involves multiple cycles to achieve a successful pregnancy. It is essential to consult with healthcare professionals and fertility specialists for an appropriate course of action based on individual cases.
