Infertility and IVF Surgeon in Gurgaon
A typical IVF cycle consists of ovarian stimulation, egg collection, fertilization, embryo culture and embryo transfer. Ovarian stimulation is done through daily injection of hormones to the female with frequent clinical and ultra-sonographic monitoring, which usually carries on for 2 weeks. After the egg ruptures, it is retrieved under anaesthesia through the internal route. The egg and sperm are then mixed or the sperm is injected into the egg. The fertilized egg then forms the embryo, which is cultured in the laboratory for 2-3 days. Two-three best embryos are then selected and transferred into the womb (uterus) on the second or the third day. The pregnancy test is done 14 days after the day of embryo transfer.
Once the precious pregnancy is confirmed, due care is provided to the pregnant women with regular foetal monitoring, and administration of hormones when required.
