What you need to know before going on the IVF journey?

In-vitro fertilization (IVF) has become one of the most popular ART techniques used by people trying to conceive.

IVF is recommended when a couple is unable to conceive through natural and non-invasive methods.

IVF is a complex set of multiple procedures, involving the fertilization of healthy mature eggs and sperm.

IVF involves mainly 5 steps: ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, sperm retrieval, fertilization and embryo transfer.

One of the main factors you need to consider before getting an IVF procedure is your financial preparedness.

IVF can be expensive due to the involvement of multiple procedures.

There is a possibility of multiple embryos implanting. It can increase the risk of premature birth and low birth weight.

While preparing for IVF, hormonal treatments can result in ovaries swelling up and a lot of pain.

The cost, the hormonal treatments and other factors can be quite emotionally, physically and financially draining.
