Everything You Wanted To Know About IVF

By: James K. Johnson

Do you have a dream of having a baby laugh and play around you? Your own baby? Do you want to give birth and feel the essence of being a mother? The feeling of giving life is something that every woman should have at least once in her life. But there are some of us who are not that fortunate and have certain complications conceiving. There are various studies and procedures going on about how to solve this problem, a lot of women experience. Of course one could always go in for adoption, but there are lots of complications there and besides giving birth is not only a whole new experience it opens up a feeling in a woman that is so wonderful that one canít help but feel overwhelmed by it. In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure from which the egg cell of a woman is fertilized by a sperm outside the womb. This method is the easiest way to have the egg fertilized if all the forms of normal conception fail. It is a well know treatment in infertility.

An informal expression for babies conceived as the result of IVF, is test tube babies, and that refers to the tube-like containers of glass or plastic called test tubes, that are frequently used in chemistry labs and biology labs. On the other hand, In vitro fertilization is usually performed in the shallower containers called Petri dishes. (Petri-dishes may also be made of plastic.) However, the IVF method is actually carried out on organic material, but is yet called in vitro. This is used when parents are having infertility problems or they want to have multiple births.

Here are a few things to know about In vitro fertilization Complications

The main complication of IVF is the danger of multiple births. This is directly associated to the practice of transferring multiple embryos at embryo transfer. Multiple births are related to bigger risk of pregnancy loss, obstetrical complications, and neonatal morbidity with the possibility for extensive damage. Limits on the quantity of embryos that may be transferred have been passed in some countries to decrease the risk of high-order multiples (triplets or more), but are not commonly used. Splitting of embryos at the same time in the womb after transfer can take place, but this is uncommon and would cause identical twins.

An additional risk of ovarian stimulation is the growth of ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome. If the infertility is connected to abnormalities in spermatogenesis, it is likely, but too early to examine that male child is at higher risk for sperm abnormalities.

There are many variations like PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis), ICSI (intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), ZIFT (zygote infrafallopian transfer) and GIFT (Gamete intra fallopian transfer).

One should always consult a good doctor and if possible take two or three more opinions. This is a procedure from which one can benefit infinitely but the only thing to remember is to use it cautiously knowing the limitations of oneís body and consequences of the decision. If possible one can also go to a shrink to take a different opinion.
