HOW IT WORKS
IN VITRO FERTILIZATION (IVF)
Couples and individuals suffering from infertility benefit from IVF+ICSI cycles and assisted reproductive techniques. These procedures have excellent success rates and help achieve the desired result of pregnancy. IVF is used to resolve female infertility due to fallopian tube deficiencies, which makes fertilization in-vivo difficult or impossible. IVF may also assist in male infertility, where there is a defect in sperm quality, and in such cases intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be used, where a sperm cell is injected directly into the egg cell. ICSI is also used to resolve fertility issues due to low sperm count. If sperm is unavailable in a natural way, your embryologist may schedule a sperm retrieval procedure such as testicular biopsy, microdissection, testicular sperm extraction (TESA) or percutaneous sperm aspirations (PESA) around the time of egg retrieval.
Fertility drugs, taken through injections, are used to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to develop multiple mature eggs. A natural cycle usually produces only a single mature egg. Pregnancy rates in IVF are much better if a large number of eggs can be retrieved and fertilized. In recent years, the fertility drug injections are given subcutaneously (under the skin) and are much less uncomfortable than the previous generations of medication. The embryologist monitors the progress of ovulation induction with ultrasounds and blood estrogen levels over several days. Your drug protocol may be adjusted based on your ultrasound and blood test results to ensure optimal results.
When the eggs are mature, they are retrieved by an ultrasound-guided procedure that is performed under light anesthesia on an outpatient basis. During the procedure a needle is placed through the vaginal opening and into the ovaries and removes the fluid that contains the egg. This procedure is performed by visualizing the follicles with a vaginal ultrasound probe. A needle is directed alongside the probe, through the vaginal wall, and into the ovary. To avoid any discomfort, strong, short acting intravenous sedation is provided.
FERTILIZATION, EMBRYO CULTURE AND EMBRYO SELECTION
Once the follicular fluid is removed from the follicle, the eggs are placed into an incubator in the lab. The eggs should be fertilized with sperm the same day. The male partner needs to provide a semen sample from which the healthiest sperm will be extracted. The eggs are fertilized by Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). ICSI is commonly recommended as part of the IVF procedure when there are sperm or egg issues, including low sperm motility, low sperm count or abnormally shaped sperm. It takes approximately 18 hours to determine if fertilization has occurred and 24 to 72 hours to establish if the embryo is growing. During a successful IVF process, the oocytes and embryos will stay in the laboratory for approximately 2 to 5 days.
Embryos are transferred within three to six days after egg retrieval. It is recommended that the embryos grow for five or six days until they reach the blastocyst stage. Embryo transfer is a simple technique and anesthesia is not required. The embryos are placed into the uterine cavity through the cervix using a small soft catheter.
During the IVF process any embryos developed by not transferred will be frozen and stored for future transfers. Generally, only embryos meeting a threshold quality parameter will be frozen. Having frozen embryos allows for follow-on transfers and can also be stored long-term for future needs. The IVF process can be difficult both physically and financially and cryopreservation helps reduce the cost of treatment.
