About IVF Treatment
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproduction treatment that is extremely well known and generally quite effective. During IVF treatment, an egg is fertilized in a controlled lab setting and then allowed to incubate and undergo cellular division. When ready, the embryo is placed into the uterus to be carried to term.
Why Choose IVF Treatment?
IVF Can Address Male Infertility and Female Infertility
IVF treatment has proven effective in addressing both male infertility issues and female infertility issues. This is a given considering the way the procedure is performed. During the consultation process, we can make key assessments about your suitability for IVF and how the process can be tailored to meet all of your needs.
IVF Treatments and Patient Age: Important Concerns
A woman undergoing IVF is generally in her early-to-mid 30s or younger. As women get older, particularly after their early-30s, the chances of miscarriage and birth defects increase. This is a natural part of the aging process and female fertility. With regard to IVF in particular, there is a noticeable decrease in success rates in women older than 30.
Realistic Expectations on IVF Treatments
Even though IVF treatments has proven very effective for many patients, it is important that all patients have realistic expectations about the treatment process and what it entails. This includes knowing all of the risks and benefits as well as the success rates and side effects of treatment. Realistic expectations are an important part of ensuring patient satisfaction and the best possible results for all forms of fertility treatment.
