They say the toughest people face the biggest challenges. Though your path to parenthood may have encountered this hurdle, do not lose hope. You are in safe hands with our IVF specialists and should expect to be expecting.
This technique under IVF involves retrieving viable eggs from the ovaries and fertilising them with sperm from a partner or donor. The viable fertilised egg or embryo is then transferred back to the uterus or can be frozen for future use.
Though invasive, it is a promising solution for those facing more serious fertility issues. Fertility issues can be stressful and worrisome, but IVF has proved successful for many before you. In cases where IUI is not an option, IVF is your best chance. Some of the more common candidates are:
People with fallopian tube damage or blockages
Those with ovulation disorders
Uterine fibroids patients
People with endometriosis
Those with impaired sperm production or function
People with unexplained infertility or genetic problems
Several factors including the severity of these conditions can contribute to whether a person is an ideal candidate.

The first step is understanding your fertility. We evaluate the basic fertility profiles of both partners, which includes a blood and semen test. You are both tested for any underlying issues or diseases that may give sub-optimal results. This also includes a pelvic ultrasound to understand ovarian and uterine conditions, based on which a stimulation plan is formulated.
The follicle-stimulating injections consist of FSH and LH hormones. These are given on a daily basis over an average of 10-14 days. These medications stimulate more than one egg to develop at a time. When the follicles are ready for retrieval, HCG is administered in order to help the eggs mature.
Medications are administered to prepare the lining of the uterus. On the day of the egg retrieval, or at the time of embryo transfer, the doctor might recommend taking progesterone supplements to make the lining of the uterus more receptive to implantation.
Egg retrieval is done in the doctor's clinic 34-36 hours after the final injection and before ovulation. Sedation and pain medication is administered for the egg retrieval.A Transvaginal Ultrasound Aspiration is the most common retrieval method where an ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina to identify follicles. A thin needle is then inserted into an ultrasound guide to go through the vagina and into the follicles to retrieve the eggs, where multiple viable eggs are retrieved. The partner’s semen sample is collected on the morning of the egg retrieval. In some cases, other methods may be used. Testicular aspiration (sperm is extracted from the testicle with a needle) may be required or donor sperm could be used. The sperms are separated from the semen fluid in the lab.
The mature eggs are placed in a nutritive liquid (culture medium) and incubated. Eggs that appear healthy and mature are mixed with the sperm in an attempt to create embryos, using two different methods.In conventional insemination, healthy sperm and mature eggs are mixed and incubated overnight.In Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) a single healthy sperm is injected directly into each mature egg. ICSI is often used when the semen quality or number is a problem, or if fertilisation attempts during prior IVF cycles have failed. The embryos are observed for a few days to identify the most viable ones.
Embryo transfer is done at your doctor's clinic and usually takes place 2-5 days after the egg retrieval. The doctor inserts a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter into the vagina, through the cervix and into the uterus.A syringe containing one or more embryos suspended in a small amount of fluid is attached to the end of the catheter. Using the syringe, the doctor places the embryo or embryos into the uterus.If successful, an embryo implants in the lining of the uterus about 6-10 days after egg retrieval.
Around 12-14 days after the procedure a blood test is done to confirm if you are pregnant.
Once positive, our team of fertility advocates and doctors guides you on the steps required for a successful pregnancy outcome.
