The medical industry is one of the biggest and the most critical sector of our society. We have seen huge advancements in this field, but the introduction of techniques like IVF has incredibly increased its importance.
IVF treatment is a process with the help of which a couple who was having problems in conceiving a child can have a child without any difficulties. Typically, people try various methods to help conception happen naturally before opting for the IVF.
What is IVF Treatment?
IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization, which came into existence for around 30 years before. The babies who have been born as a result of IVF treatment are often called as ‘test-tube babies’. Before starting the IVF process, the specialists and doctors study the medical history of the couple.
Though the reports are checked for both man and woman, but usually the woman’s health is observed more closely.
The reason for this is that there may be some health problems that are previously undetected and which may have a damaging effect on the embryo when it has been replaced into the womb of the women.
Various kinds of Treatments
The traditional IVF treatments are the most prevalent form of the treatment, though, there are some variations of the traditional one, which are mentioned below:
The first variation of the traditional IVF treatment is the ICSI or Intra Cytoplamic Sperm Injection.
The major variance between the two is the method in which the sperm is injected to the egg.
Traditionally, the egg and sperm are placed in a dish and left to conceive in the normal way.
But in ICSI method, the sperm is actually inserted into the egg, so that formation is assured and more rapidly.
Next variation is the GIFT or Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer.
In this method, both the sperm and the egg are not allowed to leave the body for the fertilization. In fact, the fertilization process has to take place naturally.
