FAQs About IVF

Q. If I conceive, will my baby be normal?
A. Studies have shown that there is no increased risk of abnormality in IVF conceived babies compared to those conceived naturally.

Q. What are the precautions I should take after the IVF procedure?
A. The procedure demands no special precautions, but avoid strenous activity. We advise the patients to be mentally & physically relaxed as much as possible. You can return to work if you wish, but fist prefer to have a few days rest.

Q. What if IVF fails the first time? How many times will I have to undergo the same procedure?
A. You can go through IVF as many times as you wish, but we advise up to five cycles at the most.

Q. Is IVF the last option?
A. IVF is the option, which has highest success rate and is also the most expensive. But, it is not “end of the road”. Many women have conceived naturally or with intrauterine insemination, even after IVF. However, for those with blocked tubes & very poor sperm counts, it is only option.

Q. Is IVF very expensive?
A. IVF is not as expensive as percieved in general. Generally, the cost of IVF cycle depends upon the dose of drugs that would be needed for ovarian stimulation. It is only as expensive as perhaps gall stone removal or removal of uterus surgery.

Q. Do we need to get admitted in the IVF process?
A. A patient undergoing IVF does not require admission. However, one should visit the center 3-5 times during monitoring cycle. On the day of egg collection, the patient would need to fast for 6 hours & come to clinic (the procedure takes about half an hour). Patients can go home after the effect of anaesthesia weans off which takes about 2-3 hours. The next scheduled visit is after 2-3 days for the embryo transfer, which again takes about half an hour and patients are free to go home after resting for one hour.

Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy

Gynaecological Surgery

We have a panel of expert surgeons, who have years of experience in this field and have successfully

performed a number of Gynaecological surgeries & Laparoscopy surgeries. However, we do not go for

gynaecological surgery and laparoscopy surgery in the first instance, prioritize treatment on sheer merit

and go for surgery only when indicated and necessary.

This is good method of diagnosis as no other investigative tool (ultrasound, hysterosalpingogram) gives a

clearer view than this endoscopic method. These endoscopic techniques can be used to correct underlying

disorders that can hamper the possibility of a pregnancy, like, ovarian cyst, endometriosis, adhesions

(scar tissue) in the abdomen hampering tubal function, uterine fibroid, polyp or scar tissue. For more

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

What are the symptoms and complications of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)?

Symptoms of PID

The infection may be subclinical (occurring without any symptoms), or there may be fever, chills, or pelvic pain indicating inflammation of the entire pelvic area.

Complications of PID

Severe or frequent attacks of PID can eventually cause scarring, abscess formation, and tubal damage that result in infertility. About 20% of women who develop symptomatic PID become infertile. The severity of the infection, not the number of the infections, appears to pose the greater risk for infertility.
PID also significantly increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy (fertilization in the fallopian tubes). A small US study suggests, however, that even mild Chlamydia infection that occurs in the upper genital tract may cause a higher proportion of ectopic pregnancies than previously thought.
