A typical IVF cycle consists of the following vital phases : -
- Ovarian Stimulation and Monitoring : - During your IVF cycle, a combination of medications will be given to encourage the growth of several eggs and ensure their final development. Eggs will be retrieved thirty-five to thirty-six hours later.
- Egg Retrieval: - Under the guidance of vaginal ultrasound, a physician will extract the mature eggs. During this short procedure, intravenous sedation will be provided to minimize any discomfort.
- Semen Collection, Processing and Insemination: - Shortly before or after egg retrieval, a semen sample will be collected. This sample will undergo processing to identify the strongest, most active sperm to combine with the mature eggs. Sperm and eggs are then placed together in the laboratory to accomplish fertilization.
