About Keeping Hope Alive
In Vitro Fertilization, commonly referred to as IVF, is an assisted reproductive technology. IVF is the process of fertilization through medication that allows eggs to be retrieved from the female (American, 2017). In order to get a sufficient amount of eggs for the IVF process, the woman is stimulated with injected medications using a protocol set by her doctor. The doctor will heavily monitor the woman during this time to tell when her follicles are ready for retrieval. When the follicles are large enough to be considered viable, the woman must be put under anesthesia for a short procedure. While under anesthesia, eggs are retrieved from the woman by trans-vaginal aspiration directly from the ovarian follicles (Texas, 2017). Once eggs are extracted, a sperm sample from the male is then used to be manually combined with the egg(s) outside of the woman’s body in a laboratory by an embryologist. The fertilized eggs then become embryos and at this point can be transferred into the woman’s uterus.
