Are you having difficulty getting pregnant and wondering if you can undergo IVF? Then this is the right article for you. 

It is common for many couples with infertility issues to want to undergo IVF to get pregnant. However, IVF is not the right choice for everyone. There are factors you need to consider before deciding to undergo IVF. 

In this article, we will discuss when you can undergo IVF and also look into some of its benefits. Stay till the end to learn more and make your decision.

What Is The Right Time To Go For IVF?

To be precise, there is no definite “right time” to undergo IVF as it will differ for each couple. 

IVF is undeniably the best fertility treatment procedure with the highest success rate. However, it does not mean that it is the first treatment you will undergo when you visit a fertility doctor for treatment. 

IVF is a complex procedure. Most fertility doctors only consider IVF when all other fertility treatment options do not help you get pregnant. However, if you have severe infertility issues, you can go straight for IVF

Below are some factors that can indicate it is the right time to undergo IVF. 

Your Age

If you are over 35 years old with poor fertility and egg quality, you can undergo IVF directly if you don’t get pregnant after several months of trying. 

Your Medical History

Certain medical conditions like blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, and other ovulation disorders can make it hard for you to get pregnant. Though IUI can help sometimes, you can directly undergo IVF if the condition is severe. 

Your Partner's Health And Fertility

In the case of male-factor infertility, where your partner has low sperm count, morphology (shape), or motility (movement), you can undergo IVF to increase the chances of success. 

Your Emotional And Physical Condition

Remember, IVF may have a high success rate, but it is equally a challenging procedure. You need to be mentally and physically strong to get through it. If you feel you are ready for it, you can undergo IVF after discussions with your fertility doctor.

Your Financial Stability

IVF is an expensive procedure. Ensure you and your partner are financially prepared before you start the procedure.

If you have considered and met one or some of the above criteria, then you can decide that it is the right time for you to undergo IVF. 

What Are The Benefits Of IVF?

IVF may be a complicated and tiring procedure. However, it has its own merits. After all, it is not the best fertility treatment out there for nothing. Below are some of the most common benefits of IVF treatments. 

Couples Can Use Donated Eggs, Sperm, Or Embryos

This is one of the main benefits of IVF. Since fertility happens outside the body here, you can choose to use a donor egg, sperm, or embryo if you do not achieve the desired results. 

You have the choice over who you choose as your donor. So, you don’t need to worry about the baby’s health or other legal issues. 

You Have Control Over The Timing

In IVF, there is a procedure called fertility cryopreservation. If you do not wish to get pregnant now, you can choose to preserve your eggs, sperm, or embryo and use them later. 

In the literal sense, your eggs, sperm, or embryo will be kept frozen under very low temperatures. It can be taken out to thaw and used in the future. 

It Increases Your Chances Of Having A Healthy Baby

In IVF, you and your fertility doctor have more control over which embryo implants into the uterus. After embryo development in a laboratory, your fertility doctor will choose the best embryo to be transferred. This can increase the chances of having a healthy baby.

Decreases The Chances Of Miscarriage

IVF has been known to be especially helpful to women with recurrent miscarriages. The controlled treatment procedure and the advanced technology can ensure a higher success rate in women with a history of miscarriages.

Choose Your Best Doctor For IVF

No matter how good the IVF is, the success of the treatment ultimately depends on the expertise of the fertility doctor. So, if you have decided to undergo IVF for your fertility treatments, ensure you choose the best fertility doctor.

Do your research, look into the doctor’s qualifications, past patient testimonials, and online reviews, and consider many more factors before you decide on a fertility doctor. This can increase your chances of a successful pregnancy. 

Conclusion

As discussed above, there is no “right time” to undergo fertility. It all depends on your health, fertility, and other conditions. It is best not to decide by yourself if you wish to undergo IVF treatment. 

Consult your fertility doctor, discuss your concerns, and then decide if you wish to undergo IVF to get pregnant.
