In vitro fertilization (IVF)
In vitro fertilization has revolutionized the way many couples can achieve their cherished dream of becoming parents.
Through years of research and development, four fundamental keys have been identified.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is when a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm are combined in a petri dish.
‘In vitro’ means outside the body and ‘fertilization’ refers to the sperm entering the egg.
How the procedure works
The technology behind in vitro fertilization has advanced significantly in recent years.
From controlled ovarian stimulation to the selection of high-quality embryos, technological advances have optimized the process.
Medical teams can closely monitor the development of embryos in a laboratory setting.
Selection of embryos with PGT-A
One of the most exciting insights into IVF is the use of preimplantation genetic testing (PGT-A).
This technique allows for the genetic evaluation of embryos prior to transfer, which increases the chances of successful implantation.
By analyzing the genetic makeup of embryos, specialists can detect chromosomal abnormalities.
They can also detect genetic abnormalities, reducing the risk of miscarriages and genetic disorders.
The importance of comprehensive emotional support
The IVF process can be emotionally challenging for couples.
Therefore, comprehensive emotional and psychological support plays a critical role in the whole process.
Clinics and assisted reproductive specialists provide guidance and resources to help couples cope with this journey
Support groups, individualized counseling and education about the process contribute to a better emotional balance.
