What is IVF?

IVF is the basic assisted reproduction technique, in which fertilization occurs in vitro (literally, in glass). The man's sperm and the woman's egg are combined in a laboratory dish, and after fertilization, the resulting embryo is then transferred to the woman's uterus. The five basic steps in an IVF treatment cycle are superovulation (stimulating the development of more than one egg in a cycle), egg retrieval, fertilization, embryo culture, and embryo transfer.

Patients who stand a very poor chance of success with IVF include the following : -
Older women, whose ovaries are failing. However, there is no upper age limit at which IVF should not be done - and in fact, for older women, it might represent their only chance of success. It's not really the age of the woman, which is the limiting factor - it's the quality of her eggs.

Men whose sperm count is very low. Most clinics will consider doing IVF only for men with at least 3 million motile sperm in the ejaculate. If the sperm counts are lower than this, then ICSI (or microinjection) is a better option.

Women with a damaged uterus (for example, because of healed tuberculosis) because the chance of successful implantation of the embryo in the uterus becomes very poor. It is also not advisable to go in for IVF treatment without trying simpler treatment options first. IVF is a complex procedure involving considerable personal and financial commitment, so other treatments are usually recommended first.


We recommend that you contact to us when your period begins for the cycle preceding the one in which you will undergo in vitro fertilization. At this time, arrangements will be made to complete any pre-cycle testing, provide you with the necessary prescriptions for medications, complete the appropriate informed consent documents, and review and clarify your financial obligations. Separate consent forms are available for IVF, embryo freezing and micromanipulation. All consent forms must be signed by you and your partner prior to initiating the treatment cycle. You will have an IVF teaching appointment at which time you will meet with both the doctor and nurse to review the consent forms and have any questions answered. You are to avoid the possibility of pregnancy during this cycle by using contraception.


Females : -
  • Avoid all medications other than Tylenol and prenatal vitamins. If you are taking other prescription medications, check with us prior to beginning your treatment cycle
  • No smoking or alcohol use. Studies show both can result in lower pregnancy rates and a greater risk of miscarriage.
  • No more than two caffeinated beverages per day.
  • Avoid changes in diet or weight loss during IVF cycle. A healthy well-balanced diet works best.
  • Refrain from intercourse three to four days prior to egg retrieval and following embryo replacement until pregnancy determination is made.
  • Normal exercise may continue unless enlargement of your ovaries produces discomfort.
  • Avoid hot tubs or saunas.

Males : -
  • Fever greater than 100.4F one to two months prior to IVF treatment may adversely affect sperm quality. If you are sick, please take your temperature and notify us of any illnesses.
  • Sitting in hot tubs and saunas is discouraged. Even a single episode in the hot tub can adversely affect sperm function. Please refrain from this for at least three months prior to treatment.
  • Drugs, alcohol and cigarette smoking should be avoided for three months prior to treatment and at all times during the ongoing IVF treatment cycle to get the best results.
  • If you have a history of genital herpes infection, you must report any pre-herpes symptoms, active lesions or healing herpes lesions. The occurrence of any of these stages in either the male or the female will require cessation of the IVF treatment.
  • Do not begin any new exercise, sport or marathon training within three months of planning IVF. If you are a runner, please decrease jogging to a total of less than 20 miles a week.
  • Refrain from wearing tight underwear.
  • Abstain from intercourse for at least three days, but not more than seven days prior to collection of semen for egg collection and during treatment.
