Many couples who have fertility problems have been able to conceive a child through the use of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). At George's Memorial Medical Centre, the In Vitro Fertilization Program treats couples whose fertility has been impaired by conditions such as Tubal problems, Endometriosis, Male factor infertility, Unexplained infertility, and for those who have failed prior treatments.
The In Vitro Fertilization Program
The In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program at George's Memorial Medical Centre provides comprehensive care to individuals requiring traditional IVF, as well as ancillary procedures such as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and Embryo Cryopreservation.
During traditional IVF, you take several medications to enable you develop multiple ovarian follicles that contain mature eggs capable of fertilization. We closely monitor this process using vaginal ultrasound scans. Mature eggs are retrieved through a simple procedure under ultrasound guidance. We then expose the retrieved eggs to sperm and transfer the resulting embryos back into your womb.
