Commonly known as “Test Tube Baby”. IVF means fertilisation of an ovum outside the body and consequently transfer of the fertilised ovum (embryo) into the uterus of the women. IVF is probably the most widely practised assisted conception procedure In the world. The procedure does not need admission at any step & is conducted on outpatient basis.The procedure is indicated for irreparably damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and when other modes of treatments has failed in:

  • Endometriosis.

  • Ovulatory dysfunction.
  • Sperm disorders.
  • Immunological problems.

Steps involved in IVF procedure

  • IVF (Test Tube Baby), GIFT & ICSI, Ovarian stimulation by hormonal injection to produce multiple eggs..
  • Monitoring of the response by ultrasound scans and blood tests.
  • Egg retrieval with the help of a needle under local/general anaesthesia.
  • The collected eggs and her husband’s sperms which are mixed outside the woman’s body in a culture dish or a test tube and are left for fertilisation in an incubator.
  • Transfer of the resulting embryo(s) into the uterus of the woman on D2/D5.

Blood test performed 15 days after embryo transfer to assess the establishment of pregnancy.
