ART: Step-by-Step Guide to IVF Treatment - A Patient's Guide to Assisted Reproductive Technology:

Every cycle of ART involves multiple steps, and each occurs at a specific time during a four to six-week period. The following is an overview of the IVF procedure. The procedure begins in the month proceeding the actual ART cycle. An IVF cycle typically includes the following steps or procedures:

  • Medications to grow multiple eggs
  • Retrieval of eggs from the ovary or ovaries
  • Insemination of eggs with sperm
  • Culture of any resulting fertilized eggs (embryos)
  • Placement ("transfer") of one or more embryo(s) into the uterus
  • Support of the uterine lining with hormones to permit and sustain pregnancy
In certain cases, these additional procedures can be employed:
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to increase the chance for fertilization
  • Assisted hatching of embryos to potentially increase the chance of embryo attachment ("implantation")
  • Embryo cryopreservation (freezing)

The success of IVF largely depends on growing multiple eggs at once. Injections of the natural hormones FSH and/or LH (gonadotropins) are used for this purpose. Additional medications are used to prevent premature ovulation. An overly vigorous ovarian response can occur, or conversely an inadequate response.

Pregnancy Test:

A pregnancy test is necessary regardless of vaginal spotting or bleeding. It determines if pregnancy has occurred and is done 9-12 days after the embryo transfer. This test is usually repeated 2 days later if positive. If the test is negative, the doctor may instruct you to stop the progesterone.
