An IVF embryo transfer is the last part of the in vitro fertilisation process.Fertility drugs are administered during IVF to encourage the release of healthy eggs from the ovaries. These eggs are then removed from a woman’s ovaries and fertilised in a lab. Once the fertilised eggs have multiplied, the embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus. For a pregnancy to begin, the embryo must then attach itself to the wall of her womb or uterus. If you are in Singapore, then you can go to Babies Bliss for the same as well.
If natural fertilisation cannot or is difficult to achieve, IVF and embryo transfer are required. Transferring embryos is done for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Ovulation disorders: If ovulation is infrequent, fewer eggs are available for successful fertilisation. Damage to the Fallopian tubes: The embryos migrate through the Fallopian tubes to reach the uterus. Fertilized eggs have trouble reaching the womb safely if the tubes get damaged or scarred.
- Endometriosis: The condition in which uterine tissue implants and spreads outside the uterus. The female reproductive system may be impacted by this.
- Premature ovarian failure: If the ovaries fail, they do not generate normal amounts of oestrogen or release eggs consistently.
- Uterine fibroids: On the uterine lining, fibroids are tiny, benign tumours. They may obstruct an egg’s ability to implant itself in the uterus, ending the possibility of conception.
- Genetic conditions: It is recognised that some genetic conditions make conception impossible.
- Impaired sperm production: In men, low sperm production, poor movement of the sperm, damage to the testes, or semen abnormalities are all reasons natural fertilisation may fail. Anyone with one of these diagnoses may think about IVF and embryo transfer in Singapore as options.
The process of an embryo transfer :
The procedure for an embryo transfer is comparable to that of a pap smear. To keep the vaginal walls open, the doctor will introduce a speculum into the woman’s vagina. The doctor will then insert a catheter through the cervix and into the womb while using ultrasonography to ensure precision. The embryos are then transported from there through the tube and into the womb. Rarely do sedatives need to be used, and the procedure is typically painless. The speculum being placed or having a full bladder, which is necessary for ultrasonography, may cause discomfort in some women. The procedure takes only a few minutes, and the bladder can be emptied right after.
