IVF, in-vitro fertilisation it is one of the many methods used to help couples that are having fertility problems, it is not the only option, there are many alternatives, but it is one of the most successful and popular methods used by couples today. IVF is carried out by surgically removing an egg from the womanise ovaries, sperm is then taken from the man and is used to fertilise the egg in a laboratory. Once the egg is fertilised and becomes an embryo it is then placed back into the woman’s uterus to grow and develop.

There are some restrictions on IVF, it isn’t off limits to anyone unless it has the ability to cause serious medical problems, or in the worse case death, but your doctor will discuss this with toy. There are ages at which IVF is recommended more than others, for example between the ages of 23 and 38, IVF is recommended more than women above or below these ages.

Generally the fertility problems will need to be identified before IVF can start and it is more commonly recommended to couples who have been trying for over 3 years. IVF isn’t generally recommended to women who are over the age of 42, as it can be seen as being unjustifiable as the success rate of conception is so low.

The success rates for IVF are generally high compared to the success rates of other infertility treatments, but they do have a strong link to age. Generally if the woman is younger than her eggs are going to be healthier, so therefore she will have higher chances of a success than someone older than herself.

If you find that you are having problems getting pregnant then see your IVF specialist doctor near you, after looking at your relevant information, such as the lifestyle you lead, because such things as smoking and drinking can effect fertility, and looking at your family history then you will begin to look into treatments that are available to you.

The main thing that puts couples off using IVF is that it can be very expensive when compared to other treatments, but there are ways to pay for IVF and also looking at traveling abroad may be an option as some Eastern european countries can offer IVF at a fraction of the price in comparison to some Indian clinics, so it may be worth having a look around at different prices and facilities before jumping into IVF treatment.

IVF is also a big decision and your doctor may recommend such things as counselling to asses if you are ready for IVF as there can be a big change in hormone balances and this can have a drastic effect on some couples, so these factors also need to be taken into account when you’re looking at IVF treatment.
