Many couples are facing the problem of conceiving naturally. Fortunately, with the fertility treatment, the couples can enjoy the journey of parenthood. In this guide, we have mentioned the IVF insemination process in brief so you can understand it properly and make the right choice by consulting the best doctor.
Couples who are undergoing the IVF, it is important for them to understand the treatment as there are different steps involved in it. Given below is detailed information about the IVF process so that you know what to expect.
Different stages in the IVF treatment
The major stages in the IVF treatment are:
- Preparation which includes testing and ovarian stimulation
- Egg Retrieval
- Embryo transfer
Let’s understand how the process will be done at the IVF centre
When the eggs and sperm are ready the fertility team will start with the insemination process. After that, the eggs will be placed in a controlled environment. With sperm washing, sperm is removed from the semen fluid by the embryologist. With this method, the best quality sperm with the highest motility is selected to fertilize the eggs.
Well, the insemination process includes 2 different methods:
– Conventional method
– ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection)
Conventional IVF process
During this process, thousands of sperm are transferred to the petri dish which contains mature and immature eggs. They are kept together and sperm meet the egg on its own.
The ICSI process is selected:
- Failed IVF attempts
- Poor sperm quality or motility.
- IVF treatment with frozen egg.
With a small needle, the sperm is selected and injected into the egg. This helps in improving the chances of fertilization, specifically for couples with male infertility.
If any point, you feel like something is not clear or you are not what to do then talk to the fertility doctor right away.
Evaluation and Embryo Transfer
Following the insemination process, the doctor team will wait for 14 to 18 hours to examine the egg. The team will monitor the entire process carefully to make sure the fertilization takes place.
The eggs which are fertilized are known as Zygotes and next few days they are monitored carefully. The eggs which grow will turn into an embryo and then embryo transfer will take place.
The team will choose the embryo which is developed at the advanced stage for the 5 days. If some of the quality eggs are left they will be frozen to use in the future. If you want to know more about this then talk to the doctor. They will give you better advice and understanding of what is right for you.
