In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

The last resort for those struggling with infertility.

Why is it performed? IVF can resolve challenging fertility issues affecting both men and women. Some of the situations that are best served by in vitro fertilization are low sperm count in the man, damaged fallopian tubes in the woman, or LGBT couples using donor eggs and/or sperm.

IVF can also help patients who haven’t been successful with artificial insemination.
At Ferny we do a complete evaluation and IVF remains the last resort when counseling women with open fallopian tubes and without severe male factor infertility.

What is it? A procedure that brings together sperm and egg in a laboratory dish, then transfers the fertilized egg to the uterus.

IVF normally involves daily self-administered hormone injections to stimulate the ovaries to produce three to five eggs each cycle.When harvested, the eggs are fertilized in the lab and one or two of the most promising embryos implanted in the uterus. The process is quick and painless and no sedation is necessary.

Potential Side Effects: May include mood swings, hot flashes, breast tenderness and headaches, but subside when the injections are completed.

Additional Information: IVF can be useful in the following clinical settings of Sex Selection, Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS) and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD),  prevention of mitochondrial disorders (either maternal spindle or via pronuclear transfer).
