IVF, In Vitro Fertilization in India, a treatment in which the eggs are retrieved from the woman’s body and the sperms are taken from the male partner, then the fertilization is carried out outside the body (in vitro) using advanced laboratory procedures and techniques with the help of specialized lab infrastructure. It is done outside the body to fertilize man’s sperm & woman’s egg after collecting them in a vitro. The complete process, collecting the eggs from the ovaries till the placement of the developed embryo into the woman’s uterus, are controlled in the laboratory environment.
Implantation of resulting embryo is done by Embryo Transfer Technique to place in the lining of the woman’s womb to make her pregnant naturally. The pregnancy test is carried out in a few days.

Day 2 (Day after periods): Levels of estrogen and LH are evaluated to confirm down regulation. If E2 levels appropriately low, a check scan is done to look for cysts and stimulation is started.
Day 5-13 (approx):Follicle sizes are measured periodically to assess the growth of follicles and thickness of the endometrium, levels of E2 and LH are taken.
Alternate / every 3rd day scans determine the growth of follicles. When 3 follicles are larger than 18mm, Inj HCG is given and egg pickup is done after 351/2 hours. In the ovum pick up procedure, the follicular fluid is aspirated and the eggs are separated from the same under microscope to be used for the fertilization procedure.
Day 2: The injections are started from day 2 of menses and periodical measurements of the follicle size and the blood levels of hormones and checked and once ready the ovum pick up procedure is carried out.
The doctor decides the protocol and mode of treatment after a detailed assessment of the case history, years of marriage, age, and other parameters.
