IVF Process & Visits
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the joining of a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm in a laboratory dish. In vitro means outside the body. Fertilization means the sperm has attached to and entered the egg.
IVF is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). This means special medical techniques are used to help a woman become pregnant. It is most often tried when other, less expensive fertility techniques have failed.
Most IVF cycles commence at the time of the women’s menstrual period. The details that follow are grouped into the three Basic Principles of the IVF process and may be adjusted based on the individualized needs of the patient.
Ovarian Stimulation &
Office visit is scheduled day 2 or day 3 following onset of menses for the purpose of a baseline ultrasound examination and a blood test (usually for follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol.)
Before we start stimulation, we use medication to suppress the ovaries, which can include birth control pills or a medication called Lupron. Ovarian suppression is usually anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks long. At the end of this time, another office visit is scheduled and an ultrasound and blood test performed to ensure that down-regulation has been achieved.
Ovarian stimulation is started with injectable fertility medications on a day that is chosen by the cycle coordinator. A precise dosage of fertility medications (Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F, Bravelle, Repronex or a combination of these) per day is begun. Since we may need to change the dose of medication during the day, it is most convenient if the patients take their injections in the evening.
Regular office visits are now begun, starting with day five of stimulation and then continuing every one to two days until follicle aspiration. During each office visit, an ultrasound and blood test for estradiol are performed. You must call at the end of the day (about 3:00 p.m.) to obtain the results of your blood test and to receive further instructions for continued medication.
Ovulation is triggered with an injection of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), lupron, or both. Trigger is administered when the follicles are judged to be mature, usually 8 and 12 days after the start of injectable fertility medications. The timing of the HCG dose is very important, because follicle aspiration is performed 36 hours after the HCG.
On the day of follicle aspiration, you will be asked to come to the office about one hour before your scheduled retrieval procedure. You will go home approximately two hours afterwards. For example, for a 10:00 a.m. aspiration, you should come to the office at 9:00 a.m. and expect to go home sometime after 12:00 noon. The aspiration procedure itself takes less than 30 minutes.
