IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, is used to help a woman get pregnant and treat infertility

Specialist clinics that tackle family infertility challenges. IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, is used to help a woman get pregnant and treat infertility and genetic problems. It is when a human egg is fertilised with sperm in a laboratory.

First, you take medication that makes several of your eggs mature and ready for fertilization. Then the doctor takes the eggs out of your body and mixes them with sperm in a lab, to help the sperm fertilize the eggs. Then they put 1 or more fertilized eggs directly into your uterus.

When considering a clinic one should consider a clinics success rate. What you should be looking for is: are the clinic's success rates greater than the national average? You should look at the live birth statistics for your age, and not just the pregnancy statistics

Fertility drugs include:

  • Clomiphene citrate. Taken by mouth, this drug stimulates ovulation by causing the pituitary gland to release more FSH and LH , which stimulate the growth of an ovarian follicle containing an egg
  • Gonadotropins
  • Metformin
  • Letrozole
  • Bromocriptine

The IVF procedure is in most cases given by injection. In most cases, IVF injections are not much painful. There is a stinging sensation but that isn't anything to be bothered about. The needles are too thin to cause any pain. You can ask your partner or even your friend to stay by your side when you administer the drugs through injections.

The cumulative effect of three full cycles of IVF increases the chances of a successful pregnancy to 45-53%. It is recommended that three IVF cycles as this is both the most cost-effective and clinically effective number for women under the age of 40.
