Test Tube Baby Centre in Bathinda, Punjab
Gem Hospital and IVF centre: Test Tube Baby Or In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common and most effective type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help women become pregnant.
The IVF procedure involves fertilizing an egg outside the body, in a laboratory dish, and then implanting it in a woman’s uterus.

IVF step one - Suppressing the natural menstrual cycle
Women are given a drug (generally in the form of a daily injection) for about two weeks, which suppresses their natural menstrual cycle.
IVF step two - Super ovulation
Fertility drugs containing the fertility hormone FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), are administered to the woman. FSH makes the ovaries produce more eggs than normal. Vaginal ultrasound scans can monitor the process in the ovaries.
IVF step three - Retrieving the eggs
The eggs are collected through a minor surgical procedure known as "follicular aspiration". A very thin needle is inserted through the vagina and into an ovary. The needle - which is connected to a suction device - sucks the eggs out. This process is repeated for each ovary.
Researchers at the University of Birmingham, England wrote in the journal Human Reproduction, that doctors should collect around 15 eggs from a female’s ovaries in one cycle if they want her to have the highest chance of giving birth to a child after ART.
IVF Step four - Insemination and fertilization
The eggs that have been collected are placed together with male sperm and kept in a environmentally controlled chamber. After a few hours the sperm eventually enters the egg. However, sometimes the sperm is directly injected into the egg, this is known as an intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
The Society of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) reported that the approximate likelihood of IVF cycles resulting in a live birth is:
- 41 to 43 percent for women aged under 35.
- 33 to 36 percent for women aged between 35 to 37.
- 23 to 27 percent for women aged between 38 to 40.
- 13 to 18 percent for women aged 41 and over.
