IVF(In Vitro Fertilization) IVF (IVF) method is an assisted reproduction technique applied to couples who cannot have children and has been used for a long time. “IVF” is at the beginning of the most preferred infertility treatments today.
In cases where the cause is unexplained infertility, infection, blockage in the tubes, low sperm quality of a man, weight, or advanced age, couples can have a baby using the IVF method.
IVF treatment includes the treatment process that allows eggs that are female reproductive cells and sperm that are male reproductive cells to be collected and brought together outside the body Dec in a laboratory environment to obtain fertilization.
When the fertilized eggs begin to divide and undergo the first stages of development, called embryos, in the laboratory environment, they are placed in the womb of the expectant mother. A pregnancy obtained after this stage is no different from a pregnancy that occurs naturally.
Its difference from a natural pregnancy is that the fertilization process is carried out in laboratory conditions and the fertilized eggs are placed back into the mother's womb.
Vaccination treatment may also be preferred before IVF treatment, especially in male infertility. In this method, the collected sperm is transferred to the uterus.
The IVF process is stage by stage
Stage 1: Egg production stimulated by hormone therapy
Stage 2: Eggs taken from the ovary
Stage 3: Sperm retrieval
Stage 4: Egg and sperm are combined to ensure fertilization
Stage 5: Fertilized eggs are placed in the mother's womb
Stage 6: A pregnancy test is performed
