We all know
what IVF pregnancies are these are the pregnancies which are a result of an IVF
treatment cycle !
independent pregnancies are common as well . These are the patients who are
waiting to do IVF treatment , and who get pregnant even before they actually do
the IVF !
This might seem unusual. After all , if the
doctor decided they needed IVF and yet they got pregnant without doing it,
doesn't that suggest that the doctor was advising unnecessary treatment?
this is not always true. We know that couples with unexplained infertility (
where everything is normal on their tests , and no medical problem is diagnosed)
will pregnant on their own, for unexplained reasons !
be partly because they're looking forward to the fact that they are finally
taking IVF treatment for helping them to have a baby , and this may help to
reduce their anxiety levels; or the tests during the IVF workup may help to
improve their fertility.
we've seen that sometimes some infertile couples get pregnant on their own
after adoption , weve seen couples get pregnant even before starting their IVF
cycle. Some couples who needed IVF to get pregnant with their first baby often
find to their delight that they are able to achieve a second pregnancy all by
themselves and this could be because pregnancy may improve their fertility ,
for reasons we still dont understand well !
Think of these as a "bonus" - after all, a baby is a baby !
