How much time does IVF take?

In order to best understand your case, and how much time it may take for your IVF procedure specifically, you can consult Dr. Gaurika, who is an experienced Gynaecologist in Tricity, specializing in IVF surgeries.

Is IVF painful?

In a typical IVF operation, there is a transfer of an embryo into the parent’s body which is done in a minimally invasive way. Therefore, there is no to very little pain experienced.

For most cases, the pain will be very short-lived and will be well within the tolerance limits. The needles used for the IVF procedure are generally so thin that it’s hard to catch the sensation of pain.

Do we require complete bed rest after IVF?

In the IVF treatment, when the embryo transfer has taken place, there is no prescribed need for complete bed rest. The parents are usually discharged within 1 hour of the IVF procedure.

It is notable that heavy exercise or going near areas with high heat levels is not advisable. The parent shouldn’t exert a lot or do any kind of exercise that requires bending, or over-stretching the body, as it may affect the freshly transferred embryo.

What are the treatments for low sperm count?
