IVF has helped more than 8 million couples enjoy parenthood, and the number is increasing significantly. However, many misconceptions are revolving around this infertility treatment. The goal of writing this blog is to make people aware of real information about IVF.
What is IVF?
IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that can help couples conceive a child in those suffering from infertility and certain indicated cases. The process involves creating a embryo using wife’s surgically recovered eggs and fertilizing them in the laboratory with her partner’s sperm. The resulting embryo is transferred back to the woman’s womb after culturing it for 2 to 5 days in IVF laboratory.
How do I know if I am an ideal candidate for IVF?
If a patient is suitable for IVF treatment, the following are its determining factors:
- Low sperm count
- Ovulation disorders
- Sperms unable to survive inside the cervical mucus – immunological
- Blockage in the fallopian tubes
- Unexplained infertility issues
- A low sperm count of the male partner
When should I think with IVF in mind?
It is wise to consult the best infertility specialist in Ahmedabad if the couple fails to conceive naturally after having unprotected sex for a year or more. Women over 30 years of age should visit the best IVF center India for evaluation of fertility treatment after six months of unprotected sex. Women over 40 years of age should visit their fertility specialist immediately after planning a child’s conception.
If I fail to conceive in the first attempt, when can I try again?
In general, patients are asked to wait for at least one or two full menstrual cycles to complete before trying again. Your fertility specialist will recommend some tests to verify your health status and other criteria that may delay the subsequent IVF cycle.

Does IVF increase the likelihood of getting pregnant with twins or triplets?
It depends on many factors that you and your fertility specialist can discuss before going for embryo transfer. If a single embryo is transferred, a woman is much less likely to have twins. However, many couples opt for the transfer of multiple embryos to increase the likelihood of conception. Also, many couples, who cannot afford multiple IVF cycles, choose to transfer many embryos to get pregnant with first attempt.
