A whole panorama of challenges faces couples who are infertile. Some are childless. Some may have one child and desire more children, but are unable to conceive. They face internal pressures of lack of self-worth and the emptiness of being barren. They also face the social stigma of being looked down upon in society by ‘normal families’ who have children. Society tends to impose the blinkers of superstition – is the woman cursed? As far as men are concerned, they often feel it’s a sign of being less macho if they have to seek medical treatment.
Fertility treatment is the medical intervention provided to a childless woman to enable her to conceive. This is especially relevant when you have been unsuccessfully trying to have a child for over a year.
Naturally you will have a lot of questions regarding the types of fertility treatment, what will work for you, the methodology, cost etc. You can have all your questions answered by fertility specialists at Femiint Fertility, one of Bangalore’s best IVF treatment Centers, where you will also get help to make a decision on the right fertility treatment for you.
Key Highlights of Fertility Treatment
Fertility treatment involves a well-defined process, right from counselling to conception, delivery and beyond. The fertility specialist usually starts by understanding personal and family history as this might elicit the underlying causes of infertility. In some cases advice given in a single counselling session is sufficient to solve an infertility problem e.g. stopping smoking or the use of certain drugs. Or addressing the issue of the weight of a woman (either underweight or overweight) which could be a factor hindering conception which when resolved can help the woman conceive.
After an evaluation is carried out to understand the underlying issues affecting one’s inability to conceive, tests are undertaken to throw light on the actual reasons for infertility. It could be because of either partner. Understanding the cause of infertility will enable the fertility specialist to provide you with an ideal solution.
Good IVF treatment Centers like Femiint Fertility will demystify infertility and help you understand the journey you need to take. They will enable you to understand your cycle and your ovulation period and you will be guided to understand and maintain your ovulation calendar.
A sperm analysis will throw light on the quality and quantity of the sperm count in a man’s semen. Tests will be conducted to see if the woman has blocked Fallopian tubes or if she has any uterine conditions which are not conducive to conception. Fertility treatment can include surgery.
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) used to address infertility, provides a sixty percent chance for a woman to become pregnant in the first six months. ART includes processes like IVF, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and cryopreservation of gametes or embryos. It may also include use of fertility medication.
IVF (In vitro fertilisation) treatment is a form of Assisted Reproductive Technology. IVF treatment involves the fusing together of the sperm and ova to create an embryo outside the womb, under stringently kept conditions in an IVF treatment Center. This embryo is then transferred into the uterus of the woman, where it can attach itself to the uterine lining. The sperm and ova could belong to the primary couple or be taken from a donor.
IVF Treatment Cycle
The IVF treatment cycle involves the flowing stages:
- Stimulation of the ovaries: Hormones are injected and the woman is closely monitored for ten to fifteen days.
- Egg retrieval: This is done under anaesthesia, through the vagina.
- Fertilization of the ova with sperm: Egg and sperm are inseminated or fused together in the lab.
- Embryo culture: Kept for three to five days in the lab.
- Embryo transfer: Amongst all the embryos, two or three of the healthy looking emrbyos are selected and implanted into the womb.
- Pregnancy test: This is done after fourteen days.
