Age is just a number
For opting for In vitro fertilization, age is not just a number. A couple has this misconception that they can get IVF treatment anytime, but that’s not true. Age is a big factor for a successful IVF treatment. With age, the ability to conceive reduces and thus the success rate declines.
IVF is painful
IVF is not painful. The injectable medicine used in the procedure of IVF is administered by a technologically advanced pen, which is made painless. And the process of egg retrieval is done when the patient is sedated. Thus, IVF is not at all a painful process.
IVF babies face health issues
Millions of babies have been born through IVF and they are normal just like babies who have been conceived normally. IVF kids do not have any health complications.
Women have to take bed rest throughout pregnancy
Women who get pregnant through IVF do not have to be on bed rest all the time. They can lead their normal lives, go to work or for a holiday when they conceive.
It’s very expensive
Yes, IVF used to be an expensive treatment in the past. But with advancements in technology, things have been made much easier and cost-effective.
IVF causes you to have multiple babies
In the past, IVF treatment transferred a number of healthy embryos to increase your chances of live birth. However, technology has advanced. Now, transferring multiple embryos may increase your chances of miscarriage and premature birth. Now, one healthy embryo is selected at a time for implantation, unless you want otherwise.
