In Vitro Fertilization - Is The Procedure Right For You?

In Vitro fertilization is a procedure that includes the removal of a woman’s egg from one of her ovaries through surgery with an objective to fertilize the same in a glass dish. The glass dish is more popularly known as test tube. Once the egg is fertilized, it is again inserted into her uterus. Since this method was introduced almost a decade back, the procedure has been very successful for infertile women with “irreversible complications”. Some problems of infertility can be solved through treatment, but there are also many complications that cannot be corrected. For example, 5%-10% of all the infertile women have an obstruction of both fallopian tubes but they have one surgically accessible ovary that is functioning normally.

This way, the couples who are unable to conceive can have a child using the procedure of the In Vitro fertilization. However, the procedure has been a debatable issue throughout the world for long. People have raised several ethical and moral concerns regarding the removal of the man's sperm and the woman's egg, and fertilizing the same in a lab, and then putting the fertilized egg into another woman who is willing to carry pregnancy to term.

On the other hand, despite being a debatable issue, it is a known fact that the process has been highly successful in many cases and many infertile women have given birth to healthy babies. Those who are not in favor of the procedure consider it as interfering with the “God’s Plan”. However, based on your medical health and preferences, it is eventually up to you to decide whether you want to go for such pregnancy fertilization procedures or not.

How Successful Is The Process?

The success rate of the In Vitro fertilization process is very encouraging. However, if we talk technically, the success mainly depends upon the age of the woman whose eggs have been taken. That is the reason why most medical organizations, hospitals and clinics describe the success rates of such cases on the basis of age. Most of them divide the various cases and the chances of success under various age groups, such as 25-29, 30-34, 35-37, 38-39, 39-42, and over 42. Here, it is very important for you to understand that the success rate will be low for those over 35 years of age. However, the overall data and statistics show a very high rate of success. You will be glad to know that in some cases, women have even given birth to twins and triplets as well. This way, women who are naturally unable to conceive can definitely take advantage of the In Vitro fertilization process.

However, before you take a final decision regarding fertilization & pregnancy, you are recommended to consult your doctor and take his/her opinion.
