World IVF Day, also known as World Embryologist Day, celebrates Louise Brown, the first baby born through IVF in 1978. IVF, a set of medical procedures for couples facing conception difficulties or genetic concerns, is widely recognized globally as an effective infertility solution embraced by numerous couples.
Currently, IVF stands as the most efficient method among assisted reproductive technologies. It involves retrieving fully developed eggs from the ovaries and combining them with sperm in a laboratory setting. After fertilization, the medical professionals transfer the resulting embryo to the uterus. It offers hope to those struggling to conceive and celebrates the joy of parenthood.
IVF Technology: What is it?
IVF is an assisted reproductive technique (ART) that addresses infertility caused by various factors hindering the natural fusion of sperm and egg. It involves fertilizing male sperm and female eggs outside the body, often in a laboratory dish.
Following fertilization, medical professionals implant embryos into the woman’s uterus, allowing their development and attachment to the uterine lining. IVF, a widely used ART, addresses conditions like endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes, and unexplained infertility.
Medical professionals utilize IVF to assist individuals or couples with reproductive issues. In India, leading IVF clinics adopt advanced treatments, making IVF highly successful for infertile couples facing fertility challenges.
One of the advanced techniques utilized in India for IVF therapy is ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection). Medical professionals employ this procedure when a couple is unable to conceive naturally. Medical professionals use ICSI, an advanced ART technique, to enhance fertilization by directly injecting sperm into the egg.
