Many people desire to become parents at some point in their lives, and while some are successful with the natural way of conception, some may experience difficulties. There are different paths to parenthood, and your doctor can help you choose the most effective approach. If you are experiencing problems getting pregnant, Drs. Kathy and Kevin may recommend effortless IVF Bedford. The procedure enables you to experience all conception cycles, including embryo formation, unlike traditional IVF.
What you should know about IVF
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment that helps preserve your fertility. The procedure involves retrieving eggs from your ovaries and fertilizing them with your partner’s or a donor’s sperm in the lab. Your doctor then transfers the fertilized eggs to your uterus. IVF is the most trusted fertility treatment that most medical experts recommend for treating infertility and avoiding genetic issues. For a woman to conceive, several cycles must occur.
You must have healthy, viable eggs, which are released to the fallopian tube for fertilization. Afterward, the fertilized egg moves to your uterus for implantation. The embryo then develops into a fetus, but if something disrupts this cycle, conception may not occur. During this cycle, the sperm must be healthy and strong enough to move to the fallopian. IVF offers an alternative means of creating an embryo with a high chance of developing into a healthy baby.
Why you should consider IVF
Tradition IVF involves retrieving the eggs and fertilizing them with sperm in a petri dish placed in an incubator. Once the embryos develop into blastocysts, the doctor transfers them into the woman’s uterus. The physician moves only one embryo into the uterus and waits for implantation. Effortless IVF is different and more efficient in that it does not use expensive external incubation equipment. The approach utilizes the INVOcell device. Your provider combines the eggs and sperm within the INVOcell device and places them into your vagina. Fertilization occurs in your uterus instead of in the IVF lab. This approach provides PH balance and the correct temperatures and oxygen rations necessary for fertilization and early development. After five days, your doctor removes the INVOcell and examines the embryos for viability. The team then picks the most viable embryo and places it into your uterus for implantation. Your doctor may suggest freezing the remaining embryos for future use.
Determining your eligibility for Effortless IVF
Most people are eligible for In vitro fertilization. This approach is an excellent fit for people living far from a fertility center, searching for affordable fertility treatment, a more natural IVF procedure, or having a busy occupation. One of the upsides of effortless IVF is that it involves fewer hospital visits than traditional IVF and doesn’t require any blood work. Other factors that make you eligible for this innovative fertility treatment include medium to high egg counts, being below age 45, having a prior tubal ligation, unexplained infertility, and men with low sperm counts.
