IVF is a complex process and is a type of assisted reproductive technology. This procedure helps infertile couples to conceive a baby. IVF process includes ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, sperm collection, and fertilization of egg and sperm in the lab under specific conditions. After embryo formation, embryo transfer is been done.    

The success of IVF can be increased if the sperm and egg quality is better. Other than this, age and proper lifestyle choices also increase the chances of pregnancy. 

The success of IVF depends on Age, quality of sperm, eggs, history of previous pregnancy, and lifestyle factors. 

Factors that affect the success of the IVF process are Age, quality of sperm, eggs, and lifestyle factors. 

On average IVF process takes around 6-8 weeks. The time of this process may vary as per the complications of the IVF process. 

The age limit of IVF for women is 50 years. For men, the age limit is 55 years. 

IVF is a process that involves egg stimulation, egg retrieval, fertilization of egg and sperm, and embryo transfer whereas during the IUI process sperm is injected into a uterus to decrease the sperm’s travel time to the egg. 

A proper lifestyle includes maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, avoiding eating junk food, and avoiding consuming alcohol and smoking. All these lifestyle changes can enhance the success of IVF treatment.

IUI (Intrauterine insemination) is a fertility treatment where sperm is placed directly into a person’s uterus whereas in natural conception, sperm has to travel from the vagina through the cervix and then into the uterus to the fallopian tubes for fertilization. 

If a person is facing low sperm count, abnormal shape of sperm, poor sperm quality, or few eggs are fertilized then ICSI is recommended by a fertility specialist. 

ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is different from traditional IVF (In vitro fertilization) in several aspects. In ICSI, a single sperm is injected directly into the egg for the fertilization. This is helpful in male infertility cases and it is performed as a part of the IVF process.

There are several advantages of choosing Frozen Embryo Transfer such as decreased chances of miscarriages, decreased risk of premature labor, greater chances of delivering a healthy baby, increased chances of implantation, and much more. 

Testicular sperm extraction is a process in which sperm are taken directly from testicular tissue. This process is helpful for people who cannot produce sperm by ejaculation. 

Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration includes a few steps. The initial step is providing local anesthesia for the procedure. A small needle is inserted into the scrotum to collect the sperms. Suction is done through the needles in the epididymis to extract the sperm. 

Women who are unable to conceive a baby due to poor egg quality, lack the ovaries, or primary ovarian sufficiency, can take the help of an egg donor. Egg donors play an important role in making the parenthood journey easier for these women. 

Egg donors should be between the ages of 21 and 29 years old and have proper height, no genetic disorder, and good mental health and physical health. 

IUI is not a painful process and it does not involve the use of any invasive tools. 

IUI cycles for women under 35 years are 3-6 on average whereas for women over 40 years or more, 3 IUI cycles are typically recommended. 

ICSI is recommended when a male is facing the issue of low sperm count, an abnormal shape of sperm, or poor motility of sperm.  

Percutaneous Epididymal Sperm Aspiration is a process in which a small needle is used to be inserted into the scrotum to collect the sperm whereas TESE (Testicular Epididymal sperm extraction) is performed to obtain a small piece of testicular tissue and separate the sperm in the testicular tissue.
