How to Apply a Tube Baby?

IVF treatment is a five-step procedure. Names and steps may vary in various sources, but the IVF steps and procedures are the same. Brief explanations of the steps are given below:

First Step: First Examination and first interview of the mother / father candidate
In this interview, detailed information about the pregnancy, birth or abortion and related treatments until the couple’s interview is taken. In case of related matters, report, analysis and audit results are taken and evaluation is done. These are what they are:

  • Past surgeries and related reports and information
  •  your father is a sperm test
  • Parents’ blood test
  • If there are reports and results related to other related therapies
  • Womb examination reports of mother candidate and ultrasonography or X-ray films if available
  • Chromosome analysis-the process of looking for a genetic problem
  • Reports and reviews of other related diseases

With all of these, couples are eligible for treatment and the problem of infertility is identified and the drug procedure to be applied is defined. Determining the appropriate treatment modality is the most important step that affects the chances of success in IVF treatment. From the couples determined to be eligible for treatment, the treatment of the mother’s candidate may begin on the 2nd or 3rd day of the period according to the doctor’s recommendation.

Step Two: Warn the ovaries and create eggs

At this stage, it is aimed to obtain more than one egg by stimulation of the ovaries of the mother candidate. In this process, egg-making drugs are supplemented with needle therapy to form a large number of eggs. This process, which starts on the 2nd or 3rd day of the menstrual period, can vary according to the age of the patient and the egg reservoir and lasts for 8-12 days on average. In the case of a mother, the response to egg development and medications is kept under observation by your doctor. In this process, the mother candidate should go to the Tube Baby Center and the doctor frequently.

Step Three: Collecting Eggs and Taking Sperm

In the mother’s line, a cracking needle is made to support the cracking of the eggs when the formed egg cells reach a certain size and degree. Eggs that develop 34-36 hours after application of the needle are collected under anesthesia and stored for fertilization in laboratory conditions. Collection of the ovaries can usually be done under local anesthesia, but this can also be done under general anesthesia when needed.

In parallel, the sperm is also taken from the father. As in the sperm assay, sperm can be taken by masturbation. Alternatively, sperm is removed by micro TESE method. It is advisable to give a 2-4 day sexual diet to your father’s candidate so that a healthy sperm sample can be obtained.

Step Four: Fertilization stage – IVF and microinjection (ICSI) application

In the third stage, the sperm from the man and the eggs from the woman are chosen from the best ones and the eggs are fertilized by microinjection method under the microscope in the laboratory. Then the embryo formation process is initiated in the devices which we call the incubator which resembles the body temperature environment and this process which follows for two to seven days is closely followed. In the following process, good and high quality embryos are selected with special management, and for the transfer of embryo to the uterus of the mother

Step Five: Embryo Transfer

The embryos selected in the fourth stage are placed in the uterus of the mother with the help of special catheters. The mother does not feel any pain during this procedure. The process is a short process that takes about five to ten minutes. As a result of the process, the Tube Baby process is completed.

Observing the recommendations of your doctor in the ongoing process is important for your pregnancy to occur. For example, sexual intercourse is at risk for a certain period of time. The end of the treatment can be bathing in the form of a warm shower on the second day.

Pregnancy test

About twelve days after the fifth step, a pregnancy test is performed to find out whether a pregnancy has occurred or not. After that, your doctor should follow up the pregnancy process, supportive practices and drug treatments should be recommended.
