4 Common Reasons Why You May Consider IVF

Infertility is a common problem facing many couples worldwide. People who want to have children may find it depressing to deal with infertility. Fortunately, your Bedford infertility specialist offers IVF to help couples struggling with infertility fulfill their dream of getting kids.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) in which physicians may fertilize eggs outside the womb. After fertilizing the eggs, the doctor will transfer the resulting healthy embryos to the womb.

Here are common reasons why you may consider IVF;

1.   Infertility

Infertility, which is defined as the inability to conceive after a year of trying or having had two or more unsuccessful pregnancies, can result from many different .factors

A third of couples that experience fertility issues often have a problem with the woman’s reproductive system. However, in another third of cases, a problem with the male reproductive system is the cause of the fertility problem. In the last third,  infertility is caused by both genders or by unknown factors.

Regardless of the root reason for your infertility problems, IVF offers a solution for most of them since it helps avoid numerous reproductive problems to fertilize and implant a healthy embryo.

2.   Same-sex couple

 If you are a same-sex couple and wish to get kids, IVF can greatly help you fulfill your dream. If you are two biological females who want to conceive their own kid, you may use a  type of IVF known as reciprocal IVF. In this instance, one woman contributes her eggs while the other carries the unborn child in her womb.

Despite not having the second woman’s DNA, her body nonetheless nurtures and molds the kid as it develops. The couple may choose to use unidentified donor sperm or have a friend donate their sperm after passing the screening procedure.

In the case of both male couples who wish to get a baby, one man can donate his sperm to fertilize the donor eggs. Using IVF, the resulting embryos would be placed in a surrogate’s womb.

3.   You have a genetic disorder

You may decide to get screened before trying to get pregnant if you or your spouse have a genetic issue that might have a negative impact on your child. You may decide to continue with a natural pregnancy and monitor the developing baby based on the findings of those tests.

IVF may be an alternative if your kid is at high risk for birth abnormalities or another serious issue. After fertilizing eggs for embryos, your doctor will conduct laboratory tests to check for chromosomal abnormalities. The doctor will implant only healthy embryos in your womb.

4.   Other methods have failed

IVF is not often the initial step in your fertility path unless you are over 40 or have a medical problem. The first step when trying to conceive or receive an infertility diagnosis is determining the cause.

Fertility specialists evaluate both the male and woman in traditional couples during your fertility evaluation. If it is determined that you or your spouse have a medical condition that makes it difficult to conceive, they will then recommend treatment like:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Undergoing surgery to fix anomalies
  • In vitro fertilization

If you have had several miscarriages or if your fallopian tubes are damaged, your doctor may advise IVF.
