IVF, IVF with ICSI, IVM and Frozen Embryo Transfer
updated Feb 15, 2010

IVF - In Vitro Fertilization is a last resort for many couples. Most couples starting IVF have already been through long months of trying to conceive naturally, failed IUI - Intra Uterine Insemination - cycles, multiple tests, a lot of frustration and disappointment.

This article discusses the following topics:

What is IVF?
In Vitro Fertilization (literally, fertilization in glass) is a procedure during which the egg, instead of being fertilized in the woman's fallopian tube, is fertilized in a test tube or petri dish. When minimal sperm is available, frequently ICSI - intracytoplasmic sperm injection - is performed.

How is IVF performed - what's the process?

Step 1 - Preparation
Both partners go through a variety of tests. These vary from one medical center to another, but often include hormone tests for the woman, AIDS and other tests for both partners and a sperm analysis for the man.

The medical center decides on a treatment plan -- how the egg production will be stimulated in the woman and when it will begin (on what day of the woman's cycle). This is what is referred to as your IVF protocol.

Frequently Lupron (also known as decapeptyl) is used to help the doctors take full charge of your hormones. It depresses your natural hormones, making the medication the sole source of ovarian stimulation.

Egg production is stimulated using hormones (e.g. Pergonal, Repronex, Fertinex, Follistim, Gonal F, Novarel, Ovidrel, Pregnyl, Profasi, and Menogon and Puregon), with the goal being to produce a "good" number of eggs to help increase the chances of having several viable embryos. (Good is defined differently in different medical centers). When too many follicles begin to ripen simultaneously, it raises the risk for OHSS (ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome).

The stimulation of egg production takes anywhere from several days to close to two weeks. During this time the woman is monitored closely using ultrasound and blood tests. It is very common to make changes to the IVF protocol during the stimulation process.

What you feel: You may feel swollen or bloated from the multiple follicles that are growing. You may feel irritable or have other symptoms as a result of the hormone injections and you may feel anxious about the egg retrieval process and the success of your cycle. Many clinics now offer support groups for their patients.

Step 2 - Ova or Egg Aspiration / Retrieval
Once the eggs are ready, they are ...
