Overview

IVF that stands for in vitro fertilisation is an intricate series of procedures which are carried out to treat infertility. It is an assisted reproductive technology, where the eggs are extracted from a woman’s ovaries and a sperm sample is retrieved, after which the process of fertilisation is carried out by combining the egg and the sperm in a laboratory dish. Once the embryo/ embryos is/ are formed, it/ they are transferred to the uterus.

What are the Risks?

Though in most cases, women resume their normal activities from the next day onwards, but you may need to take it a little easy. Though the process is considered to be safe, there are a few risks involved:
Multiple Births- In many cases, more than one embryo is implanted in your uterus, which leads to multiple births.
Premature Delivery- Studies have shown that IVF increases the chances that a child will be born premature or with a low birth weight.
Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome- Many a time because of the fertility drugs there is swelling and pain in the ovaries.
Complications in Egg-Retrieval- The use of an aspirating needle to collect eggs can cause infection, bleeding or damage to the blood, or bowel vessel or the bladder.

Ectopic Pregnancy- Though the percentage is less, but some women may have an ectopic pregnancy. In an ectopic pregnancy the fertilised egg implants outside the uterus. And as the egg cannot sustain itself outside the uterus, the pregnancy has to be terminated.
Certain Birth Defects- Though the findings are debatable, some studies show that it is the age of the mother that is the primary risk factor in the development of birth defects.
Cancer of the Ovaries- Early studies suggests a link between certain medicines, that are used to promote the egg growth, and a type of cancer that results from an ovarian tumour. Though, recent studies have contradicted these findings.

  • Step 2- The eggs are retrieved from the ovaries of the woman through a minor surgical procedure.
  • Step 3- The sperm of the male partner is retrieved, and is prepared for combining with the eggs.
  • Step 4- Insemination is then carried out, which is a process where the sperm and eggs are mixed together and stored in a petri dish to promote fertilisation.
  • Step 5- Once the fertilisation occurs, the eggs that have converted into embryos, are transferred into the woman’s uterus by using a catheter or small tube.

Treatment

Chances are your doctor will ask you to go for a Coronary Angiography. Although, the medical term may sound ominous and scary, an angiogram procedure done is really helpful for early identification of the onset of any coronary disease.

To understand in everyday terms, Coronary Angiography is a method of taking X-Ray images of the coronary arteries or the arteries connecting to your heart, in order to find any issue or blockage in the arteries. The X-Ray images taken during this method are called angiograms.

The method of taking an CT angiogram test though not extremely complex, may still take anywhere between half an hour to three hours depending on the age, medical history and medical condition of the patient. During the angiogram test, the doctor will first relax the patient by giving sedatives. Then a small, hollow plastic tube called a catheter is inserted into the blood stream, through the arm or groin.

This catheter then reaches the coronary arteries when a contrast die is inserted to take the images for the cardiac angiogram. Once a sufficient number of images are taken during the angiogram procedure, the catheter is removed and the incision is closed by applying pressure. The patient is then advised to lie on their back for several hours.

The angiogram procedure is generally not painful and is comparable to blood tests. But, the overall effectiveness of the cardiac angiogram cannot be undermined. The clear identification of any blockages help the doctors to define the correct line of treatment including lifestyle changes, exercise and if required stenting and angioplasty.

An advancement in medical technology has led to the development of a newer method called CT angiogram, which is a non-invasive method of getting an angiogram test. As opposed to the traditional coronary angiography, the CT angiogram doesn’t involve the use of catheter, but relies on extremely powerful X-Ray imaging.

Like any other medical procedure, the angiogram test carries its own set of risks that include bleeding at the wound, chances of infection, bruising and swelling in some cases. Although, none of it is major, it is strongly advisable to consult the doctor in case of any doubts.
