IVF Factors to Consider
In order to increase the chances of success, your fertility specialist transfers several viable embryos into your uterus during the IVF procedure. In some cases, more than one of those embryos implants into the lining of the uterus, resulting in multiple births. Advances in the technique allow specialists to transfer fewer embryos than in the past, which results in a lower chance of multiple births, but it does still occur in a number of IVF cases. Make sure you are prepared, both emotionally and physically, for this possibility.
Side Effects of the Medications
Between the medications, the financial strain, and the worrying about whether or not the procedure will work, IVF can take a major toll on your emotions. Factor in all the ordinary every day stress, and it can become overwhelming. Before deciding to undergo in-vitro fertilization, make sure you have a strong support system in place and talk to your partner about how the two of you will handle any issues that may arise so there are no major surprises.
