Analyzes for IVF

What tests do I need to collect for IVF?

ECO is often resorted to in the case when the family no longer has a chance of fertilization by natural means. There may be problems in a man with a lack of sperm.

According to doctors, this method of fertilization is not used so often. This is due to the fact that in our country IVF has appeared recently, there are no good specialists in this field, many doctors do not know about its capabilities and benefits. The state in no way encourages this type of solution to the problem of infertility. As a result, treatment is expensive and not everyone can afford it. At the same time, IVF in other countries is common and is considered a common thing and not at all disgraceful.

If the couple has already decided on this step, then she will have to be properly screened for preparation for in vitro fertilization. Focusing on the history, the doctor recommends this or that treatment to achieve the desired result in a short time.

The couple should prepare for the fact that before ECO has to pass a lot of tests. They need to be done on different days of the menstrual cycle and examined by different doctors. It is important to remember that each analysis has its "expiration date", and monitor this by planning a reception with the reproductive health specialist.
