The Need A Test Tube Baby Center helps infertile couples in attaining conception, through IVF and other assisted reproductive techniques and advanced treatment methods. Becoming a parent can give a couple one of the best pleasures in their married life. However, there are millions of couples out there, who are infertile and are not able to procreate naturally. Such centers can help achieve these results and bless infertile couples.

Who Needs IVF?

Today, there are hundreds of thousands of such babies who are a result of treatment taken in a test tube baby center. IVF or in vitro fertilization procedures has become very common. Infertility Doctors try out other means of treatments, such as drugs, or IUI, before suggesting a test tube baby treatment for couples with simpler problems. On the other hand, IVF treatments are the option of first choice for women with blocked Fallopian tubes; or men with low sperm counts.

The Process

A typical IVF process in a test tube baby center begins with drug treatment for controlling super ovulation. This increases the production of multiple eggs. Next, there are blood tests and ultrasound examinations conducted for determining the best time for removal of the mature eggs from the ovaries. These eggs are then combined with the sperm from the male partner. The mix is kept incubated for a few days, enabling the fertilized eggs to develop. Though the popular terminology used is a test tube, it is not done in a test tube, but rather in a plastic petri dish. The fertilized eggs , now called embryos, are then placed in the woman’s uterus, using a catheter. If more than one embryo is transferred, this improves the chances of a pregnancy. However, this can also increase the risk of a multiple birth. The remaining fertilized eggs or embryos are frozen, for future use.

Chances of Success

The success rate of the IVF procedure carried out in a typical test tube baby center like Malpani Infertility Clinic will vary according to the age of the woman and other related factors. This treatment has brought happiness to many couples who could never have had children without such a treatment.

A test tube baby center offers an alternative for those who are not able to conceive naturally, by creating an embryo outside the body, which is then transferred inside the mother. The pregnancy is completely normal.
