With couples working from home in this current situation, I’m sure you get more time to spend with each other, but there is also the pressure of work. Like for most couples, initially the lockdown was a relief for us, but now we are already waiting to step out and travel. Being by yourselves at home, the craving for a child hits strongly.
If both of you feel ready to take on this new step, then speak to a trusted gynaec and a fertility specialist, and see what treatment options you need to opt for. It would be safer if you get vaccinated before starting the infertility treatment.
I wish you success and the joy of parenthood
IVF is commonly known as ‘test-tube baby’. It involves stimulating the ovaries to make multiple eggs grow and then taking the eggs out of the woman, fertilizing them in the laboratory with her partner’s sperm, and transferring embryos back to her uterus. Egg + sperm form an embryo. The embryo implants in the uterus to grow into a baby.
The first IVF baby in the world (Louise Brown) was born in July of 1978 in England. Louise Brown was 28 when she delivered her own baby in 2006. Her baby was conceived by IVF. Hundreds of thousands of children are now born annually as a result of the IVF technique.
IVF is the process by which the sperm fertilizes the egg outside the uterine cavity, outside the Fallopian tube in the lab and that is the reason why it’s called in vitro fertilization.
This procedure is advised after simple fertility treatments have failed and sometimes we tend to advise it directly in patients who have or in women who have both tubes blocked or in men who have a total motile sperm count of less than 5 million.
I woke this morning and noticed a sweet little bird nest with a little egg in my hanging flower pot (in my backyard). I have two friends that are pregnant. I literally felt like everyone around me is having a baby but me! I can laugh about it! I know my time will come one way or another. But I had to just laugh on the odds of that circumstance!
