What Is The Correct Time To Begin Ivf?
As regards the correct time to begin the treatment for IVF, your doctor is the best person to guide you through. Your doctor will walk you through everything from the best time to begin your treatment after the initial consultation to examination and blood tests. However, your treatment may start with your clinician on the 2nd and 3rd days of your period. Before starting the treatment, it is also advisable to do research on your part and know your body well. There are a lot of factors involved with treatment but the most important part is your body and hence knowing your body well would make it easy for the doctor to understand and start the process quickly.
How Far Is Ivf Successful?
There are multiple factors, such as patients’ age, their condition, and the treatment used that determine the success rates of IVF. If the patient’s age is more than 35, there is a possibility that conceiving a baby through IVF may be difficult. This may happen due to many reasons, the number of eggs produced by a woman being limited with the progression of age and the quality of the eggs degrading with age. To save from such troubles, women are often administered different hormones that would ensure a safe transfer. With the best treatment that is suitable for the patient, IVF can surely be a success.
However, at KJIVF, with the best IVF doctors in Delhi, the success rates have never dwindled.
How Much Rest Is Required After The Embryo Transfer Procedure?
Usually, a rest period of 15-20 minutes is sufficient. However, it is suggested not to indulge in heavy exercise and walking long distances during this period. It is suggestive to the working women to resume their offices from the next day.
Sometimes, women do experience pelvic pain. But this pain is usually very mild and happens very rarely. The pain can be due to the transfer. If the patient experiences pain after the transfer, it is advisable to take proper rest and avoid any kind of strenuous activities since it might hinder the process of implantation in the uterus. Proper and thorough rest is highly advisable. At KJIVF, IVF center in Faridabad, patients are treated with utmost care.
Why Is It Necessary To Store So Many Eggs?
The human reproductive process is inherently inefficient, some eggs are immature, and some mature eggs won’t fertilize normally. A proportion of embryos arrest – presumably due to some inherent abnormality in the embryo. A proportion of embryos that do well in culture are genetically abnormal. So, while the number of eggs necessary to achieve a live birth depends in part on a woman’s age, the fact remains that in all women most eggs will not lead to live births. Also, importantly, extra embryos can be frozen for future use. This enables more than one attempt at pregnancy per egg retrieval in many cases, and more than one child from one retrieval cycle if extra embryos are available for cryopreservation. Cryopreservation means storing eggs at low temperatures, as good as freezing.
What Are The Potential Side Effects Of Ivf?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions about IVF. This is due to the incomplete knowledge about the process. At KJIVF, the best IVF center in Delhi, with the given streamlined changes in the process, most patients tolerate the process well. We rarely see any ovarian hyperstimulation these days, since we changed our medication protocols. We use sequencing technologies to identify healthy embryos, and we can now avoid twins and triplets. In other words, aside from bloating and inconvenience, IVF is now really well tolerated.
Apart from this, the symptoms that are experienced by the patients greatly vary with their age, their tolerance, and how well their body reacts to the treatments. There have been instances where due to the complications in the body of the patient, the treatment needs certain alterations. But these alterations too, aren’t much drastic. With the supervision of the doctor, following all the protocols religiously can help with the treatment to become successful in the first cycle itself.
Given the decline in egg quality that occurs with age, women who are older or who experience premature ovarian aging often take more attempts to produce a healthy egg. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, a healthy body weight, and a focus on health and wellness, success rates can be optimized. Although these questions do not explain the concept of IVF completely, it does give a gist of what to expect when one considers IVF as a fertility treatment option.
