What Is IVF?

During in vitro fertilization, the process of birth is initiated outside the body of the woman. As the name suggests, this procedure allows male sperm to fertilize the female's eggs in a laboratory setting; after the then-fertilized eggs have matured enough to establish a pregnancy, they are implanted into the uterus of the woman.

In vitro fertilization has helped millions of couples across the world to conceive when traditional means have proven unsuccessful. Remarkably this treatment gives hope to average women who have a zero or close-to-zero percent chance of becoming pregnant by natural processes.

Robert G Edwards was the pioneering physiologist who successfully administered the first in vitro fertilization in 1978. His efforts to develop such an astonishing treatment were acknowledged in 2010 when he was awarded a Nobel Prize.

Many famous celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion have successfully given birth to children with the help of in vitro fertilization.

How Does In Vitro Fertilization Work?

The process of retrieving the sperm and eggs from the male and female donors can be different according to age group and patients’ specific sexual health conditions.

Typically, the doctor will stimulate the female ovaries with the help of medication so that “ready to fertilize” eggs can be retrieved later. Retrieval is done by sedating the patient.

The retrieved eggs are inserted into a test tube with sperm and a medical solution to let the eggs fertilize. From these fertilized eggs, healthy embryos are selected to be implanted into the female body and from then onwards the whole process is the same as a normal pregnancy.

You are advised to quit smoking to increase the chances of successful IVF.

How Long Does One In Vitro Fertilization Cycle Take?

  • Between one and two weeks are normally required to prepare the eggs for fertilization.
  • The sperm fertilizes the eggs within five to six days.
  • After that, you are required to spend a day at the clinic for the embryo to be planted into the uterus.
  • The procedure can be completed in as little as 7-10 days; to consult with your doctor in Phuket as to how long you will need to spend in Thailand.
