Getting pregnant is a lot of work. Sometimes even if physical and mental factors are aligned, things do not take a favourable turn and chances of getting pregnant become slim. Many couples undergo a lot of stress in the wake of it. Seeking help via IVF (In vitro fertilization) is the last resort but it is always helpful if you know what to expect, the risks and advantages, the entire IVF process and numerous factors that come into consideration in the IVF journey. It would make you informed and you will be better prepared for the outcome. 

What is IVF (In Vitro fertilization)?

In Vitro fertilization (IVF) is a series of procedures that help with fertility and conception. It is one of the best fertility treatments available for couples who are having infertility issues. Also deemed as the last hope to get pregnant. Though it promises the best outcomes, IVF can be mentally and physically challenging for couples trying to conceive. It can get very stressful at times. They must take medical help/therapy sessions to navigate their emotional distress healthily when embarking on the IVF journey. The best age for IVF starts from 26 to 50 in women and 26 to 55 for men. However, in women, eggs start to deplete after their 40s so you need to keep that into consideration. The IVF success rate  in India is around 35 to 40 %.

How is IVF performed?

IVF is a kind of artificial reproductive technique where nothing is artificial about it. During IVF, mature eggs are collected (retrieved) from ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. The egg is retrieved after 36 hours of the ovulation induction process. It is a technique also called assisted reproduction in which eggs and sperm are brought in together outside of a body in a lab dish.  Then after 2 – 3 days, the fertilized eggs get transferred to the uterus. Eggs are then implanted in the lining of the uterine to develop and mature. One full cycle of IVF takes about three weeks. 

IVF process step-by-step – What do experts have to say:

  • A doctor will run a few tests to know the number of egg reserves in your body. Your egg reserves deplete as you grow from puberty till you reach reproductive age. 
  • After the egg reserves check, he will check the body’s hormone levels like the FSH test, LH test and other hormones responsible for egg production and pregnancy. Also, your spouse’s semen test is conducted during this time.
  • Then he will give you injections to suppress your hormones.
  • Once he feels that the egg has started forming, he will take out a few eggs from the ovary.
  • Then the spouse's sperm are taken to cultivate and make the pregnancy happen in a petri dish.
  • The doctor will then check or quantify the quality of an embryo formed.
  • After 3 - 4 days, the embryo transfer happens, that is it will be transplanted in your womb.

The entire process takes up to 3 – 4 weeks from diagnosis, suppressing your hormones, and unstimulating the egg production from outside.

Things you will experience after IVF treatment

Like any medical treatment, IVF also has some side effects and risks:

  • Nausea

  • Mood shifts 

  • Pain around the breast area

  • Bloating and headaches

  • Fatigue and cramping

  • Excess of egg production called Ovarian hyperstimulation which can lead to vomiting, bloating or stomach pain

All these symptoms can be managed and your IVF specialist will guide you to deal with the symptoms in every follow-up session.

IVF is not openly accepted and is still considered a taboo topic. The stigma surrounding it can lead to a lot of mental health struggles for women opting for IVF as a means of conception. It also negatively impacts the couple and disturbs their marital life. Even after women conceive via IVF, the blame for not producing offspring naturally most often falls on women. Postpartum stress coupled with stress caused by family and friends because of opting for IVF as an option to conceive leads to severe depression and anxiety in women.
