Frequently Asked Questions about IVF

Here’s a list of common questions that most couples have about IVF and what to expect:

When is a patient ready to travel back home after IVF treatment?

If you’re out of town and need to travel, talk to your doctor to get a precise answer of how much time to stay in the city. It will usually be two or three weeks. After embryo transfer, you will be ready to travel back home. There’s no limitation as to the type of travel to choose. Drink plenty of fluids if you’re traveling by air to avoid dehydration.

Is the procedure painful?

We try to make IVF as comfortable as possible, and the schedules and injection types for hormonal induction are designed to minimize the discomfort and pain.

Egg retrieval is performed with anesthesia, and it is considered minor surgery. You won’t feel anything during the procedure. When the anesthesia wears off, you may feel minor pelvic cramps and some discomfort, which is successfully treated with medications.

Is there any side effect for IVF Treatment?

Hormonal stimulation usually has no side effects. Some women experience breast tenderness or swelling at the site of injection.

IVF pregnancies are safe and not associated with any particular risk. According to some research, the incidence of birth defects is slightly higher (4% vs. 3%). However, genetic testing before embryo transfer is a useful tool to prevent this from happening.

What if a woman's eggs are not suitable for pregnancy?

When a woman’s eggs are not viable, the uterus is also evaluated to make sure that it will support a pregnancy. If your uterus can carry on with the pregnancy, donor egg fertilization stands as an option to get pregnant with a higher success rate.

This option has allowed thousands of couples to have a baby, and the steps of IVF remain unaltered, except that donated eggs will be fertilized by sperm cells.
