For most people, the IVF journey follows an initial meeting with your local doctor who will refer you to a fertility specialist
Once you have been referred to the fertility clinic, or chosen a private clinic yourself, you will need to undergo some initial blood tests and a sperm sample will be required, to ensure IVF is the right course of action
These blood tests measure
Mga antas ng hormone na Anti-Müllerian (AMH is a protein that can give an approximate idea of the amount of viable eggs left in the ovaries of a patient).
FSH levels (this hormone stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles in the ovary before an egg is released from one follicle at ovulation).
Estradiol levels (This determine your ovaries’ ability to produce eggs)
Teroydeo (Low levels of the thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from your ovary)
HIV, hepatitis B at hepatitis C.
Ang mga sakit na nakukuha sa sekswal na maaaring makaapekto sa pagkamayabong.
Matapos mong makuha ang iyong mga unang pagsusuri, sasabihan ka na tawagan ang klinika upang gumawa ng isang appointment sa unang araw ng iyong susunod na panahon.
Don’t panic if your periods are irregular or non-existent! So many women, especially those with PCOS can find themselves waiting months for a period. However, you can kick off your the first stage of your IVF treatment by inducing your menstrual cycle with medication. Your clinic will discuss this with you.
This medication contains the female hormone Medroxyprogesterone, a type of synthetic progesterone. Progesterone is a key hormone that controls the menstrual cycle and ovulation. Typically, you’ll take this for about a week and it should kick-start your period 5-7 days after you stop taking it.
Every IVF journey is different and may take longer or shorter depending on how your body responds to medication, but this quick guide might help you get an idea of time
