In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization is a process by which egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the womb, then placed back into the womb. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods have failed.

What are test tube babies?

  • Test tube babies are babies that are created in a test tube by taking one sperm cell and one egg cell and combining them. So the baby starts to develop in the test tube and is then implanted into the mothers uterus.
  • You were pretty much right. Test tube babies are also called In Vitro babies. I think the spelling is right. It literally means "in glass." A sperm and egg are taken from two separate donors. The protective shell that exists on the surface of the female egg cell. When this shell is removed, the sperm cell is allowed to fertilize the egg. After fertilization happens, the zygote is allowed to grow for a while in a nutrition solution. This concoction is placed in a test tube, hence test tube baby. After the cell cluster has reached a certain maturity, it is implanted into the surrogate mother. This is the most risky part of the process, as the cells have to bond to the Uterus wall. After they have bonded, the process is officially complete. After a nine month gestation period, a baby is born.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of in-vitro fertilization?

studies have shown that ivf children can have long term hospitilizations or surgerys
Pro: for some people, the only possibility to bear their biological child. Cons: cost (usually not covered by insurance); likely need to repeat attempt at ivf several times; invasive physically on the woman; possibility of lab mixups (there have been cases of the wrong sperm or eggs or embryo being used for the wrong patient); ethical concerns over the creation of excess embryos or their destruction; time and effort and stress spent on a gamble. Con-counters: cost compared to adoption may be comparable depending on your criteria and how successful you are (at either ivf or adoption); ethical concerns can be kept in mind when attempting ivf, by not creating more embryos than you intend to have transferred into your uterus, and if any are left, you can donate them to other couples to use. The underlying weight of either the pros or the cons will depend on one's beliefs, intentions, comfort levels with the alternatives, financial well-being, and seeing eye-to-eye with one's partner (if any).
Pros-

  • It is by far the most effective treatment in order to bear a child if you are having difficulty conceiving naturally.
  • You can genetically test embryos prior to pregnancy and avoid genetic diseases.

Cons-

  • Women who go through IVF are usually at risk of a condition called 'ovarian hyperstimulation'.
  • IVF is a very expensive, stressful and time consuming method of conceiving.
  • IVF ups your chances of a multiple birth.

How is test tube cloning accomplished?

Easy, it's not....

"Test Tube" babies are a product of a process in which an egg and a bunch of sperm are isolated in one tube (dish) and once the egg is fertilized, it's inserted back into the female to grow. This is sometimes done with multiple eggs to increase the chances of one surviving with the sometimes unexpected result of multiple child birth. The DNA make-up of the child(ren) will be a mix of both the male chromosomes from the sperm and the female chromosomes from the egg.

"Cloning" is much different... The current process widely used in cloning is to take an egg and remove the genetic material from within, basically leaving an empty egg. You then insert the genetic material from whatever you want to clone (person, pig, etc) and shock the egg into thinking it's been fertilized and start splitting like a normal embryo. The biggest difference here is, since the only DNA / chromosomes in the egg is from the donor cells, in theory, the baby should be pretty much identical to it's donor. Furthermore, a father (sperm) is not needed in this process.

Can an embryo die after transfer?

Yes

This happens. But only in special cases. If we well treat that them there are less chances to die after we transfer it.

Where does in vitro fertilization take place?

InVitro Fertilization is a process and not one event.

1. The ovaries are stimulated to produce multiple eggs.

2. Egg retrieval is typically performed in the hospital under general anesthesia.

3. The embryologist creates the embryos.

4. Typically, 3 or 5 days later, the newly created embroys are put back into the uterus by the physician, commonly two at a time and remaining embryos are frozen.

What are the advantages of embryo transfer?

1. it can be frozen for later use if the first cycle is not effective

2. it can give infertile couples a chance to achieve parenthood

3. the embryo can grow in a natural environment rather than an artificial environment

What does cramping a few days after embryo transfer mean?

I know that a certain amount of cramping is normal with a transfer, it could also be implantation. Good luck to you! ~pawsalmighty

How do you get pregnant after tubal Ligation?

If you want to get pregnant then, there is a surgical procedure to try and reattach the fallopian tubes. It's expensive and usually has a poor success rate depending on what method of inital surgery was used. IVF is usually used in the alternative. Or, if you find yourself pregnant AFTER the tubal, then the doctor did not quite finish the job! The tubes were not closed off enough and in some intances naturaly re-attach themselves, hence, pregnancy.

Is your first ultrasound after in vitro fertilization vaginal?

It is called a transvaginal ultrasound.

A new pregnancy typically cannot be visualized until the HCG levels reach between 4,000-5,000. This is when the gestational sac, fetal pole and yolk sac can be visualized.

Cardiac activity is typically not seen on an ultrasound until 6 to 7 weeks gestation.

Can you get pregnant after your tubes have been tied cut and burned and if not can you get invitro?

Answer

no you can not get pregnant. I doubt IVF would work either since they usually fertilize the egg inside the tube. If they could do it just in a womans uterus, we could save all the tubal pregnancies-



Unsure where previous answer comes from...

Damage to, or blocking of, your fallopian tubes does NOT mean you cannot get pregnant, provided your ovaries are still healthy. If so, many PCOS and Endometriosis patients would not have been able to conceive!


With IVF you are given hormones to stimulate the growth of several eggs at once (compared to the one or two your body usually ripes each cycle), which are then extracted directly from your ovaries and fertilised at a lab with your partner's (or donor's) semen. If one or more embryo's are formed, they choose the strongest and healthiest one(s) to transfer back into the mother's womb, hoping it will hatch there as any other fertilised egg would.


Contrary what is claimed in the above answer eggs are NOT fertilised in the fallopian tubes (usually not even test tubes, rather perti dishes!) and ectopic pregnancies (which often occur inside one's fallopian tubes) have NO connection to the process!

Can you use invitro to conceive if you have your tubes tied?

Yes!That's the way most people do get pregnant when the tubes are tied.It's alot easier to do,you don't have to go through the surgery to have the tubes untied and is alot more achievable than the old way.

Implantation
In Vitro Fertilization

When does implantation happen after embryo transfer?

Implantation can start to occur as soon as 6-10 days after retrieval (I use "after retrieval" because embryos can be transferred on different days of development. Count the retrieval day as day 0). Five days after the retrieval a healthy embryo will have reached the blastocyst stage. Six-seven days after the retrieval, a healthy embryo will start breaking out of its hard outer shell and begin the implantation process. After the healthy embryo has implanted in the uterus it will not start secreting hCG for several more days. You will probably not be able to feel the implantation process.

What is the chances of concieving twins on IVF ICSI?

Is it true that you can only have 2 embryos transferred in the US? We were looking to have three with the thought of having twins or triplets intentionally.

No, it is not true. A good reproductive endocrinologist will transfer as many that can be SAFELY transferred.

A good one would never implant more than two, if he feels sure all three could possibly take (with high grade embryos).

Also it is depends on healthyness of body. If the body is not capable to keep those embryos to long term period then it is not posible.

Is it possible to get pregnant after having a pomeroy tubal ligation after 12 years?

YES. Remember the form you signed at the time that stated that a tubal is not 100% and you can still get pregnant?! Nothing so far is 100% not even BC pills. You have to get this checked out if you think you may be pregnant because the chances of having a tubal pregnancy is higher and you can die from this. Good Luck
