6 Steps of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
It starts at the beginning of menstruation with the application of 3 to 4 medications that facilitate the growth of multiple follicles in the ovary. The medicines and doses used will depend on the case of each patient.
The monitoring is done by ultrasound and, depending on the results observed, the decisions will be made about the adjustment of the doses of the medications used. Subsequently, the indicated moment to proceed with follicular aspiration will be determined.
It consists of recovering the ovules that responded to the medication. This procedure will be performed in the operating room vaginally and is guided by ultrasound. Before starting, the patient will receive anesthesia.
After aspiration of the ovules, these will be classified in the laboratory to be subsequently inseminated with sperm from the couple, trying to achieve the union of both. In general, fertilization will occur 18 hours after insemination.
Upon completion of the fertilization process, the resulting embryos will initiate a process of cell division and will be grown until they are ready to be transferred to the patient.
This step is crucial in the culmination of the process, and must be executed with great caution. After optimal embryos have been selected to be transferred, a special cannula will be used and, with the support of ultrasound, it will be verified that appropriate procedures are followed. After the transfer, it is recommended to continue with medications that will support pregnancy. The pregnancy test will be done 14 days after the transfer.
