Infertility & IVF – Frequently Asked Questions

Normally, young couples with unexplained infertility or minor sperm problems start with IUI but even they may be advised to consider IVF in certain circumstances such as when the fallopian tubes are blocked or when there is ovulation problem. To know about the right treatment for you, it is imperative that you get the recommended investigations and then have a qualified doctor review those reports.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is an extra step in the IVF procedure in which a single sperm cell, is directly injected into the egg cell for embryo formation. ICSI will be useful if you have low sperm count or low sperm motility. It is also recommended if you have abnormal sperm morphology, which may make it difficult for the sperm to penetrate the egg naturally.
Age is an important factor for success in IVF, especially for women. Although it varies from person to person, usually the fertility levels in a female start to decline after the age of 35, and it becomes harder to conceive, even with IVF, as you grow older.
There is no cut-off age as women upto the age of 72 have conceived with IVF. However, given the ethical and medical concerns, many doctors do not offer IVF to women after 50 or 55 years.
You may choose to opt for reversal tubal ligation reversal, but the chances to conceive naturally even after the surgery remain small, because there is a possibility of remnant scar tissue that blocks the tubes. IVF is the ideal solution for women with blocked or closed tubes.
The chances to conceive twins are higher with IVF because of multiple embryo transfer. However, no doctor can guarantee twins as it depends upon how many embryos successfully attach with the uterine wall and start to grow.
