Eggs are retrieved by ultrasound guided needle aspiration under light sedation (in the operating room). This involves no surgical incision, and virtually no pain afterward. You just leave the hospital directly from the operating room, with no pain, and come back three days later to have the embryo (or embryos) placed very simply into the uterus through the cervix with a tiny catheter. An hour later you are able to go home. There is no pain from the procedure IN MOST OF THE CASES
In order to retrieve these multiple eggs for IVF, the woman undergoes injections with hormones and careful monitoring of her ovaries by ultrasound and her hormone levels .There are several methods of hormonal stimulation for IVF, that basically can be divided into what we call “conventional stimulation” and “minimal stimulation,” or “mini-IVF.” We CHOOSE THE BEST METHOD OF STIMULATION Mini-IVF: Minimal Stimulation IVF Technique
The technology of mini-IVF protocol, first was did covered in Japan.
When patients contemplate IVF, their first reaction is often the fear of daily injections of hormones for months, the incredibly high cost of the drugs, the risk of multiple pregnancy and consequent prematurity, side effects related to high levels of estrogen resulting from large numbers of eggs, hyperstimulation syndrome, and the prospect of painful daily progesterone injections for a full ten weeks even after the IVF procedure WHICH IS COMPETELY UNTRUE AT OUR CENTRE.
Mini-IVF is designed to recruit only a few eggs, thus avoiding the risks of hyperstimulation, reducing the number of injections and reducing the cost of medications. In many patients who had very poor quality embryos with conventional IVF stimulation protocols, mini-IVF improved their embryo quality and resulted in pregnancy in difficult cases .
