What is IVF?
IVF is a reproductive technology which involves the process of fertilization by retrieving a sperm sample extracting eggs and manually combining the two in the laboratory dish. IVF is usually artificially inseminated and is used to treat infertility in patients with conditions such as damaged or blocked fallopian tubes, male factor infertility, removed fallopian tubes, genetic disorder, ovulation disorder as well as unexplained infertility to mention a few.
IVF treatment involves four steps which are; Ovulation induction, Egg retrieval, fertilization and Embryo transfer and implantation. In few weeks after the insemination, you can take a pregnancy test to confirm the success of the result. Although the average couple may have to undergo the process twice or thrice but once the process succeeds, there is no difference between it and a naturally conceived pregnancy.
Is it Safe To Do IVF Treatment?

While some risks are minimal, some are increased, in fact there are inherent risks that makes people who are in need of this fertility treatment have a higher risk pregnancy. However, the most widely feared risk of IVF is multiple pregnancies which is a condition where a woman has two or more babies in her uterus, the babies could come from different eggs or the same egg. Fertility doctors usually give advice about the number of embryos to transfer but because of the high cost of IVF people usually believe that multiple embryo transfer increases the chance of getting pregnant, this is thus the result to the high tendency for twins’ birth in IVF treatment.
Women who are pregnant with twins are at a higher risk for pregnancy complications which include premature birth, cesarean section, TTTS (Twin- Twin Transfusion Syndrome), low birth weight and gestational diabetes amongst others. Women are also at risk over reaction to hormone drugs that are used to stimulate the ovaries besides, egg collection may be uncomfortable most likely because it is sometimes performed with, local anesthetics. There is also the risk of bleeding during egg retrieval and damage or infection of the bladder or bowel.
