How Does IVF Work?

IVF treatment consists of four distinct stages:

1

Preparation

To help ensure the successful retrieval of multiple eggs, women undergoing IVF may receive fertility drugs to mimic the body’s natural hormones. Then, her ovaries and hormone levels will be carefully monitored to determine when her body is ready for egg retrieval.

2

Egg Retrieval

On the day of retrieval, the patient is lightly sedated, and an ultrasound probe is inserted into her vagina to identify follicles. A thin needle is then inserted into an ultrasound guide, gently passing through her vagina and into her follicles to retrieve her eggs.

3

Fertilization

A male donor provides a semen sample, his sperm are separated from his semen in a lab. The male’s active sperm are then combined with the female’s eggs in a laboratory dish. Within under 24 hours, it can be determined if the IVF process worked.

4

Implantation

To ensure they’re as strong and healthy as possible, viable embryos are first incubated and observed over the next couple of days. Finally, the embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus, to continue developing. If the IVF treatment is successful, the woman will test positive for pregnancy.
