IVF Process

Once it is determined that In Vitro Fertilization is the best course of treatment the process is fairly straightforward.

The ovaries are stimulated using medication to produce a number of viable eggs.
Retrieval & Collection
The resulting crop of eggs is retrieved from the ovaries using a minimally invasive procedure and sperm is collected from the male.
Fertilization & Development
The eggs are fertilized in the lab using the males sperm. They are then monitored for growth for 5 to 6 days.
The resulting healthy embryo(s) are then transferred into the uterus.
Pregnancy Test
Two weeks after transfer, a blood pregnancy test is done to determine if the procedure was successful. At this point progesterone may be indicated to aid in maintaining a heathy uterine wall that will helps carry the baby to term.
