In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) Treatment

In-Vitro Fertilisation or IVF refers to the use of laboratory techniques to bring the egg and sperm together outside of the woman's body. IVF is not a single procedure but rather a series of treatments that have many stages. In order to increase their success rates, a thorough gynaecological evaluation should be undertaken.

Firstly, the mother undergoes a series of hormonal injections to stimulate egg production, causing her ovaries to produce an excess of eggs. Once ready, these eggs are then retrieved with the help of a vaginal ultrasound while the mother is under anaesthesia. They are then fertilised with the sperm - to form embryos - in the laboratory before being transferred back into the woman’s womb.

In order to optimise the sperm and egg quality, couples should keep as healthy as possible through diet and exercise, and by making appropriate lifestyle choices.

FAQ

  • What is the success rate of IVF?

    The success rate for IVF is age-dependent. Generally, the pregnancy rate for IVF is up to over 40% for the younger age group, but falls to 15% once the woman reaches 40 years. Live birth rates after IVF are around 30% for the younger age group and 5-10% for the older patients.

  • How to Be IVF Ready

    Observe a healthy diet and lifestyle together as a couple. Stop smoking and reduce your intake of alcohol and caffeine. Also start a regular exercise regime to control your weight and reduce stress. Any chronic medical conditions such as diabetes should also be under control.

    Men should avoid gonadotoxic factors such as being exposed to exogenous heat from taking hot baths and being in saunas. Avoid medications which can adversely affect your sperm function and take antioxidant supplements with vitamins A, C and E to improve sperm quality.
