In-vitro Fertilisation

In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF) refers to a procedure where the woman's eggs are removed from her ovaries and the man’s sperms are collected from his semen sample, and then fertilisation is carried out in a laboratory which has an environment replicating the human body. The embryos, formed in the lab are then put back into the uterus to achieve a pregnancy.

The process is commonly known as ‘test tube’ procedure as it is done outside the human body.

What about the Precaution ?

  • Take medications as prescribed by the treating doctor as these have been prescribed to improve your chances of achieving pregnancy. If you become pregnant you might be asked to continue some of these medications until the 12th week of pregnancy when the body usually starts producing enough.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking and exposure to cigarettes and X-rays.
  • Please consult your fertility experts before taking any medication not prescribed by them.


  • Successful Pregnancy

    The couples don’t have to waste their time in other infertility treatments when the causes include blocked fallopian tubes, maternal age, reduced ovarian reserve and severe male infertility issues. In these cases, IVF is the best treatment option.

  • Prior Detection of Genetic Disorder

    Increases chances of having a healthy baby. When there is a chance of passing any genetic disorder, preimplantation genetic screening in IVF makes it possible to choose a healthy embryo.

  • Broad Opportunity

    IVF can be used successfully in any individual. It can be used in surrogate or gestational carriers, women who are facing frequent miscarriages and in single mothers and same sex couples who want to enter parenthood.

Risk Factors

in In-vitro Fertilisation

  • Multiple Pregnancies

    This may result when more than one embryo is inserted, which increases the risk of low birth weight or premature birth.

  • Miscarriages

  • Ectopic Pregnancy

    When egg implants outside the uterus it is called an ectopic pregnancy. 2% to 5% of women with IVF have an ectopic pregnancy, where pregnancy cannot be continued.

  • Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is the injectable fertility drug used to induce ovulation. During this process, ovaries may become swollen and painful, which is called Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome. Symptoms include mild abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating and diarrhea. These symptoms will disappear in a few weeks.

  • Stress

    IVF can be physically, emotionally and financially draining, which may cause stress. Emotional support from the partner and family can help you to go through the ups and downs of fertility treatment.
