Conditions that Require IVF

The use of IVF is increasing rapidly despite having complex procedures. It is mainly used for having children artificially, for those who have genetic and fertility problems to conceive a child naturally.

This procedure assists in having a baby by mixing the eggs with the partner’s sperm outside the body, mostly in a laboratory. A special container is used to fertilize eggs and after 5-6 days, eggs are put back in the body for having the rest of the process. The process of IVF takes commonly 3 weeks but in some cases, it can take longer. You can do the IVF treatment by Dr. Shivani Gour for having a successful pregnancy in the shortest time.

Reasons for doing the IVF

The main reason for doing the IVF is to treat the genetic problems or infertility of the parents and assisting them in having a child. But the IVF treatment is a very complex process and it is far different from other processes such as fertility drugs, which is used to increase the production of eggs and intrauterine insemination, a process of inserting the sperm into the uterus. IVF is a complex but most-trusted method of having a baby. However, IVF treatment might be ordered for many certain conditions such as:

  • Disorders of Ovulation

Ovulation is very important for fertilization. The absence of ovulation or infrequent ovulation can lead to less production of eggs for fertilization. This is one of the most common causes of female infertility. This disorder can cause trouble for having a baby. You can contact Dr. Shivani Sachdev to know more about this condition.

  • Uterine Fibroids

This condition is commonly seen in women. Fibroids are non-harmful tumors, they stay in the uterus wall. But they can trouble the implantation of fertilized eggs. The chances of developing fibroids increase after 30-40 age of women. IVF might be required for women with this condition.

  • Less sperm production

The quality of the sperm plays a very important role in the fertilization process. Problems in sperm can cause huge problems in the egg fertilization. These problems include low quality of sperm, abnormality in the shape of the sperm, slow movement of the sperm, poor mobility and concentration of sperm. Some of these problems are correctable but some of them are not. You can visit Dr. Shivani Sachdev to determine more about it.

Genetic Disorders

This is one of the common conditions where parents of the baby contain a genetic disorder. The risk of passing the disorder to the baby is high. So taking preimplantation genetic testing on the partner is very important. This procedure includes IVF. Eggs are screened and scanned for genetic problems. If no genetic problem is detected in the egg then the eggs are transferred to the uterus. Some genetic problems might not be detected by the screening. You can do this screening procedure in any affordable and advanced IVF treatment facility.


If you have any of these mentioned conditions, IVF might be required to solve the issue and get pregnant.
