In Vitro Fertilization

IVFIn Vitro Fertilization is a procedure that involves retrieving eggs from a female and sperm from a male, fertilizing the eggs with the sperm in a laboratory dish, and then replacing the resulting embryos (fertilized eggs) back inside the woman’s uterus. This treatment is used when timing therapy or Intrauterine Insemination with the partner’s semen (IUI) has failed. This treatment is very effective for the people who have one of the following conditions.


This treatment is very effective for those patients who fall into one of the conditions below.

  • Salpingemphraxis (Completely blocked fallopian tubes)
  • Anti-Sperm Antibody (Person has an antibody that fights the production/ development of sperm)
  • Peritubal Adhesions (Adhesion of fallopian tubes cased by Uterine myoma, Endometriosis or previous operations, etc…)
  • Asthenozoospermia (decrease in sperm motility), or Oligozoospermia (Low number of healthy sperm (mild to severe))
  • Advanced age of Female

1. Induction of Ovulation

An ovulation-inducing agent is used to stimulate the ovaries into producing numerous mature ovarian follicles (eggs). The type of ovulation-inducing agent used is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Controlled ovarian stimulation (super ovulation):

  • Fertility drugs are injected to promote the growth of multiple follicles.
  • Optimal number of follicles are 10-15.
  • Surplus embryo are cryopreserved g for the next treatment.
  • GnRH agonist and GnRH antagonist permit better control of the stimulation cycle and prevent premature ovulation.

2. HCG Administration

The optimal time for hCG administration and egg retrieval is determined according to the number and size of ovarian follicles produced. Testing may be performed to check your hormone levels along with transvaginal ultrasound to confirm the optimal timing for administering hCG. Egg retrieval is carried out approximately 36-37 hours following hCG administration.
