- Poor egg quality
- Meager sperm count and motility
- Ejaculation disorders
- Endometriosis and uterine fibroids
- Poor ovarian reserve or premature ovarian insufficiency
- Genetic abnormalities in parents
- Recurrent miscarriages
- Age-related or unknown infertility
- Fertility preservation
- Same-sex couples or single individuals trying to bear children

Steps involved in the Procedure of IVF Treatment in India
The IVF treatment is a multi-step process that can take from 4-6 weeks at minimum for one cycle. The step involved in IVF treatment are as follows:
Ovulation Induction or stimulation:
This step involves ovulation and follicular monitoring of the patient and administering fertility medications or hormonal injections to stimulate ovulation for multiple egg production. The more eggs, the higher the chance of getting healthier eggs.
Follicular egg aspiration:
According to the doctor’s guidance, the patients self-administered an hCG trigger shot 36 hours before egg retrieval to trigger ovulation. The egg pick-up is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetics.
The doctor uses an ultrasound-guided hollow needle to suck out the follicular fluid containing mature eggs.
Sperm collection or retrieval:
The semen sample is collected from the male partner or donor on the same day of egg retrieval. If the sperm count of the semen is too low, then the sperm are retrieved from the epididymis or testicles through PESA or TESA, respectively.
Sample washing methods are used for selecting the motile sperm to be used for fertilization.
Fertilization in the lab:
The eggs are fertilized either by the standard method of insemination (mixing sperm and eggs together) or by ICSI (injecting sperm into the egg’s cytoplasm). The fertilized eggs are monitored for embryonic development for 3-5 days.
Transfer of Embryo(s):
Depending on the optimal condition of the embryo, it can be transferred between 3-5 days. Day 5 embryo transfer is known as Blastocyst transfer, and it is most effective for successful implantation. Generally, 1-3 embryos are utilized for embryo transfer in India, and the rest of the embryos can be frozen for future use.
The embryo implantation can take 2-3 days, and two weeks after the embryo transfer, a blood test is carried out to confirm pregnancy. If the test is positive, the patient is considered 4 weeks pregnant.
