We call this procedure IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) because it is based on the fertilization of the woman’s eggs by the man’s spermatozoon in the laboratory and not in the woman’s body.
When does a couple ends up choosing this method? How does the doctor decide to suggest this procedure? A lot of women wonder: “when do I follow an IVF procedure?”
The In Vitro Fertilization is not the first option of any couple. In addition, it is not the first option of the specialists either.
If a woman hasn’t conceived after a year of intercourse without protections, we start investigating infertility matters. After a woman turns 35 years old, this time period decreases to 6 months. This happens because a woman’s fertility is diminished year by year. According to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) 1 out of 6 couples worldwide face infertility matters.
Our gynecologist specialized in IVF, after having analyzed the specialized examinations, analyzes the reasons of the couple’s infertility. He also analyses the causes and the medical profile of both the man and the woman, so he can come to a conclusion. After that, he proposes the best choice of assisted reproductive method.
