Department of Fertility & IVF
In-vitro-Fertilization (IVF) is a popular infertility treatment. First, the ovaries are facilitated to formulate multiple follicles, within each one is an egg, by using “fertility drugs”. Ultrasound monitoring of follicle number and development along with blood hormone levels determine when a single injection mature the eggs. Then the fertility doctor takes the eggs from the ovaries using a small needle, while the woman is under light anesthesia and fertilizes them with sperm in a specialized lab. After fertilization happens, the eggs are cultured and develop into embryos. Three to five days later, the specialist re-implants the embryos back into the uterus. IVF has several steps, and it takes many months to complete the whole process. It sometimes works on the first try, but many people need more than 1 round of IVF to get pregnant.
