Many patients can conceive faster with IVF
By utilizing in vitro fertilization (IVF), the doctors at our Tennessee fertility center can offer many patients a faster path to pregnancy. Many people can conceive faster with IVF because it is one of the most effective forms of fertility treatment. It has become an incredibly popular option, as it helps women and men move beyond many fertility challenges.
Who may be able to conceive faster with IVF?
Each patient is different, but many groups of people can often overcome fertility challenges and conceive faster with IVF at our Tennessee fertility center.
- Diminished ovarian reserve. Because the quality and quantity of a woman’s eggs decrease as she ages, many women over the age of 35 face challenges when trying to conceive without the assistance of IVF.
- Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes. Issues such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or previous surgery in the abdomen or pelvis can damage the fallopian tubes and fertility. IVF provides a faster path to pregnancy by circumventing these issues. An embryologist will fertilize the eggs and a fertility doctor will transfer the embryo to the uterus.
- Endometriosis. A woman with endometriosis, when the uterine lining starts growing in other areas, could experience fallopian tube challenges or issues with the lining of her uterus. However, she may be able to conceive faster with IVF.
- Ovulation disorders. Women who have ovulation disorders, like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), have problems ovulating. The ovulation medications used during an IVF cycle can help to correct these barriers to pregnancy.
- Multiple miscarriages or unsuccessful fertility treatments. Intended mothers who have experienced multiple miscarriages or fertility treatments that did not result in pregnancy may benefit from IVF.
- Male infertility. Patients facing sperm abnormalities may find a faster path to pregnancy by utilizing IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which consists of an embryologist injecting the egg with a single healthy sperm.
What does this faster path to pregnancy consist of?
IVF consists of a series of steps that often result in a positive pregnancy test.
- Ovulation medications. The first step in an IVF cycle involves the woman taking ovulation induction medications that cause the maturation of numerous eggs.
- Regular monitoring. While the woman is taking fertility medications, she will receive regular monitoring at our Tennessee fertility center.
- Egg retrieval. When enough eggs have matured, the woman will undergo a short egg retrieval procedure.
- Fertilization. An embryologist will then fertilize the retrieved eggs with the sperm from the woman’s partner or a sperm donor.
- PGT. In some cases, the resulting embryos will undergo preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) to help determine which embryos are healthy.
- Embryo transfer. Finally, the doctor will transfer one of the resulting embryos to the woman’s uterus.
