In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) literally means ‘fertilization in glass,’ more simply explained as ‘test tube baby’. In the IVF process, eggs are removed from the ovaries of the female, at the same time sperms are collected from the male partner. The eggs and sperms collected are made to fertilize in the laboratory and the fertilized egg (embryo) is then implanted in the woman’s womb to make her conceive.

Alka IVF fertility experts believe that age must not be a factor of consideration when going for IVF process as we get a lot of infertile couples between the age of 25 – 30 years who think that they are too young to go for IVF treatment and it’s a last resort without even knowing the statistical figures which clearly indicates that the success rate of IVF or any fertility procedure decreases with age.


Commonly known as Test Tube Baby. IVF means fertilization of an ovum outside the body and consequently transfer of the fertilized ovum (embryo) into the uterus of the women. IVF is probably the most widely practised assisted conception procedure in the world. The procedure does not need admission at any step & is conducted on an outpatient basis. The procedure is indicated for irreparably damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and when other modes of treatments have failed in –

  • Endometriosis
  • Unexplained infertility
  • IUI failures
  • Ovulatory dysfunction
  • Sperm disorders
  • Immunological problems

  • Monitoring of the response by ultrasound scans and blood tests
  • Egg retrieval with the help of a needle under general anaesthesia
  • The collected eggs and her husband’s sperms which are mixed outside the woman’s body in a culture dish or a test tube and are left for fertilization in an incubator
