Infertility is a common problem which at least 27 million couples in India face. The lonely journey of life without a child is extremely frustrating that makes the majority of the couples opt for IVF treatment.
People usually consider that infertility is a condition specific to women. It is likely to be 40-50% in the case of women and 30-40 in the case of men. The reasons attributed to female infertility are uterine fibroids, irregular periods, when there is a failure in the implantation of the embryo within the uterine wall, etc. Whereas, male infertility may be due to health issues and genetic reasons.
Even though the success rate of IVF may or may not be always be successful, many of the young couples find a ray of hope in this treatment to get an offspring. This treatment helps a woman to conceive as it improves the fertility, healthy development of an embryo and proper implantation of the embryo in the uterus. Usually, a couple waits for 2 to 3 years after their marriage expecting their first child. When conceiving by natural means seems impossible, they approach a doctor to conceive through artificial methods.

Transvaginal Ovum retrieval
This procedure involves taking out the ovum of the female patient with the help of ultrasound technology. Inserting a tiny needle in the hind part of the vagina to take out fluids containing eggs. This needle is inserted directly into the ovarian follicle to retrieve eggs for fertilization. After the sperm merges with the egg, it is implanted into the wall of the uterus of the patient. To increase the probability to get pregnant, the doctors implant two or more fused eggs in the uterus of the patient.
Assisted Zona hatching
In this process, the doctors make a minor hole in the outer covering surrounding the embryo to place it in the uterus wall. Acid or a laser beam is used to make a hole.

The doctors choose those sperms with high mobility to increase the chance of fertilization. If the doctors find the sperm to be of low quality or the zona of the eggs are very hard, many improvements are done before starting with the IVF treatment.
