Infertility affects both men and women and has many causes. In men, low testosterone levels can affect sperm count and motility, leading to fertility problems. A blockage of the male urethra or varicocele can prevent a couple from getting pregnant. Endometriosis is a disease in women that affects ovulation and causes abnormalities in the uterus or cervix that can affect pregnancy.
IVF medications and timelines may vary with each case. Our IVF specialist will discuss the IVF procedure and treatment plan with you during the consultation, depending on your circumstances. We require our patients to undergo pre-cycle tests, including blood tests and semen evaluation. Some other tests are also required, such as AMH, AFC Ultrasound, TSH, Hepatitis, Gonorrhea, HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and Genetic carrier screening. Various IVF medications are given to female partners to stimulate egg production. These drugs aid in releasing hormones that increase egg production and maturation. Our specialists recommend the medicines depending on your unique case, which may include FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), hMG (Human Menopausal Gonadotropin), and hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). Egg retrieval occurs on day 2/3 of your menstrual cycle, for which ovarian stimulation medication is administered. After the egg is fertilized, it undergoes PGT-A testing for any abnormalities. The patient is prepared for embryo transfer when the test results are known.
