How does in vitro works & how much does it cost to have it done?

LAB FERTILIZATION: Ivf means the egg and sperm are fertillized in the lab, in a petri dish rather than in a womans tubes. Traditionally the female is given fertility medications to help the ovary to make more than one egg and then the eggs are removed from the ovary. The eggs and sperm are put together in the lab in a petri dish to fertilize. Several days later, the embryo is transferred into the uterus. ...Read more

Why is donor in-vitro considered adoption?

Why is donor in-vitro considered adoption?

Not al All: Actually it is really not considered option and not all all like adoption. First the male partner (assuming male female partners) is a genetic father. Second, you still carry the pregnancy. Third you can breast feed and take care of the child from the first moment. Also legally you are always the birth mother and it is your decision whether to disclose your treatment to anyone. ...Read more

Is artificial insemination a solution for me if I want to optimize chances of in vitro?

Is artificial insemination a solution for me if I want to optimize chances of in vitro?

Do you mean ICSI?: Icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) injects a single sperm into each egg; with conventional in vitro fertilization (ivf) we just mix eggs and sperm in the lab and let natural fertilization occur. 3 reasons for icsi 1. Abnormal sperm tests pre-treatment/ on day of egg retrieval 2. Surgically retrieved sperm 3. Reduce errors in pgd testing for single gene conditions. Otherwise icsi doesn't help. ...Read more

Is there anything anyone with CF can have done beside in-vitro to help them conceive a child?

Is there anything anyone with CF can have done beside in-vitro to help them conceive a child?

Maybe: Cystic fibrosis is a condition that may cause the blackage of the fallopian tubes and thus may inhibit normal fertility. CF however, has a wide variation in how it may impact each individual and may allow for normal conception. I have several patients that have conceived without any art. Ectopic pregnancy is a significant risk and genetic counseling is a must as this is an inhereted condition. ...Read more

What is in vitro fertilization?

Outside the Body: In Vitro means outside the body. So, IVF means fertilization outside the body. We remove the eggs from a woman's ovaries and collect a semen sample from the man for sperm.

We culture embryos for 3-5 days and then place them into the woman uterus and hope for implantation and a baby. ...Read more

How does in vitro fertilization work?

Simple: Sometimes ivf sounds complicated but it is very simple. We want to see as many of your eggs as possible in a safe way to use the best ones for you. Injections allow us to get several eggs. The we make sure the sperm gets inside the eggs and that is done in the lab. And then we grew the embryo (early pregnancy) usually for 5 days and then easily place it back inside your body. ...Read more

Is in vitro fertilization an alternative to adoption?

Is in vitro fertilization an alternative to adoption?

Sometimes: Ivf is an alternative to adoption in some cases where a woman is a "good candidate" for ivf. In other words, if a 47 year old woman wants to adopt, she has a much higher chance of "having a child" through adoption vs. Ivf, as she would be considered a poor candidate for ivf success due to her advanced age. I hope this makes sense... ...Read more
