In vitro fertilization promises many infertile women to become mothers. This procedure is carried out absolutely free on the territory of the Russian Federation for a certain category of citizens.
For the successful passage of IVF women are ready for a lot. However, in spite of the miracles that artificial insemination promises, it is far from being successful for all married couples.
What IVF is considered successful?
Successful in vitro fertilization is the procedure that results in pregnancy. Such an outcome is considered successful, so the protocol was a success and can be considered complete.
According to statistics, only a small percentage of women reach a successful protocol from the first time. Some go for fertilization 3 or more times, after which they become full-fledged parents. Accordingly, in spite of positive reviews, the procedure is not as rosy as it seems to us initially.
What does the outcome depend on?
The success of the procedure depends not on the doctors performing the operation. First of all, you need to pay attention to the quality and number of eggs that were obtained as a result of the fence.
If, after a short or long protocol, the ovaries adequately reacted to stimulation, during which a large number of follicles were produced, this would indicate a high risk of successful fertilization.
If fertility specialists received less than 3 eggs, then this suggests that there is a low chance of fertilization.
Often the success is influenced by the quality of a man’s spermogram. Far not in all cases it is possible to find the necessary quantity of the operating spermatozoa capable to fertilize an ovum. A man may need additional stimulation. This procedure is not included in the free quota operation.
The outcome is also determined by the embryo transfer tactics. It is necessary not to pull, but not to rush with this procedure. The ideal time is the 3-5 day fertilized embryo. Doctors determine on their own what embryo a woman needs.
A woman after IVF is required to carefully follow all the recommendations of the doctor. They concern not only the issue of taking drugs, but also lifestyle changes. A girl should at this time carefully look after herself, beware of the occurrence of colds, lead a quiet measured life, refuse to take alcohol, cigarettes and fatty foods.
Of course, one of the determining factors will be the general health of a woman, her reproductive age. If at the time of fertilization a woman is between 30 and 35 years old, then her chances are average. When the age of more than 35 years, the possibility of conception is significantly reduced.
Doctors still try to increase the chance for a favorable outcome of events, so not 1 but 2-3 embryos are placed in the uterus.
Chance of luck
Absolutely all women who apply for an in vitro fertilization procedure are interested in what are the chances of conceiving a child in their situation. A woman under the age of 35 years, not having serious abnormalities and pathologies of the reproductive system, has from 35 to 45% on the probability of a successful conception.
A woman between 35 and 45 has a 25-30% chance. The chances of a woman after 45 years of age make up 10% of the probability of successful fertilization.
Failure after the first IVF does not mean that it is necessary to stop fertilization. Woman go on 2 and subsequent procedures. As a rule, the chance to conceive after 2 and 3 procedures is much higher than after the first. However, after 4 chances are significantly reduced.
This means that it is worth trying after a while and a comprehensive treatment. The approach that was used for this was not suitable for you, so it is necessary to change it accordingly.
Important! Even one after which a miscarriage has occurred is considered a successful protocol. Accordingly, if the embryo grafting itself goes well, but after a few days or weeks a miscarriage occurs, then you need to contact a specialist who will work not on the conception problem, but on the ability to bear the child.
Signs and symptoms of pregnancy to delay
After artificial insemination, the woman goes home the same day. Only after 2 weeks, she is invited to the clinic in order to take an analysis to determine the level of the hormone HCG in the blood.
This analysis is the first starting impetus that indicates the state of pregnancy of the patient. If pregnancy is confirmed by a blood test, then the girl goes to the next stage, namely, an ultrasound.
However, girls are not always ready to wait 2 weeks. They want to immediately know and understand how well IVF has passed.
Not all women can find in themselves certain symptoms by which one can judge about the onset of pregnancy. In addition, doctors advise not to look at yourself, so once again not to encourage.
The first symptoms a woman, sometimes, finds already on day 5 after transplantation. They consist in small hemorrhages. This is called implant bleeding, which does not entail serious consequences.
If the bleeding does not increase, while there is no severe and sharp pain, then you should not worry. As a rule, within a few days bleeding is asymptomatic.
Often, women celebrate mood swings. They are associated with changes in hormonal levels. However, at the same time, such changes may be associated with a nervous situation and experiences around artificial insemination.
After a week and a half after the embryo replanting, the patient may notice a particular drowsiness, fatigue and heaviness after the working day. A woman spends a lot of effort on the embryo to settle down.
Sensitive ladies feel soreness in the nipple area.
The most inaccurate way to determine pregnancy would be toxemia. This is a sign that does not come too soon. As a rule, it falls on the 2-3 month of pregnancy. Accordingly, in the first weeks, when nausea appeared, one can only speak of self-suggestion or indigestion.
Feelings after embryo transfer
Many women immediately after the procedure of artificial insemination begin to listen to their own body, trying to recognize the sensations.
In rare cases, the girls even before confirming the fact of pregnancy and blood test will be able to find out their exact condition.
Doctors identify a number of sensations that will help determine a successful IVF protocol or not:
- swollen breasts;
- mood swings;
- pigmentation on the face;
- craving for unusual food;
- frequent urination.
These symptoms may indicate that artificial insemination was successful. But you can not just look for them within 2 weeks of waiting. A woman may not even expect and feel the birth of a new life in the body.
Successful in vitro fertilization is an average fact. It can be achieved after successful treatment, a long or short protocol, and successful embryo transfer. Successful IVF means the birth in the future of a new life for which a married couple is preparing for so long.
