In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

ART Technologies have revolutionized the management of infertility.

It involves recovering the eggs from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperms outside the body in the controlled environment. IVF or In-Vitro Fertilization is process where fertilization takes place in a Petri dish (outside the human body). The fertilized eggs are cultured in a special culture medium for three to five days and embryos replaced into the uterus of the patient. At Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, the department of in vitro fertilization specializes in number of techniques like ICSI, TESE and IVF. Intracytoplasmic Sperms Injection (ICSI) is used to aid fertilization for men who have low sperm count following oocyte retrieval, a single sperm is injected in each oocyte. The resulting embryos are cultured for three to five days before being transferred into the uterus of the patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is IVF pregnancy?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of several techniques available to help people with fertility problems have a baby. During IVF, an egg is removed from the woman's ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. The fertilized egg, called an embryo, is then returned to the woman's womb to grow and develop.

During IVF, mature eggs are collected (retrieved) from ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. Then the fertilized egg (embryo) or eggs (embryos) are transferred to a uterus. One full cycle of IVF takes about three weeks.

During egg retrieval, you will be given pain medication and sedated, so the procedure itself should not be painful at all. After the procedure, you may experience some mild cramping or feelings of pressure. Pain can usually be treated with an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen.
