What is IVF?

In Vitro Fertilization is the most common treatment we do at Generation Next Fertility. It takes place over the course of one menstrual cycle (or more). In this treatment, eggs are removed from the ovaries, fertilized with sperm, and grown in a lab for a few days. After this, the embryos are either freshly transferred into the uterus or frozen to be transferred at a later date.

During an IVF cycle, various medication protocols are used to produce as many high quality eggs as possible for each patient. Each medication protocol is custom tailored to the patient.

Choosing the right fertility doctor is the best way to make sure that your dreams come true. Every patient who comes to Generation Next Fertility is treated as an individual and will receive a customized treatment plan to provide them with the best possible results.

Types of IVF Treatment

Your treatment plan at Generation Next Fertility is always custom made for you. With that said, there are many subcategories of treatment where fertilization occurs outside of the body. All of our treatments are based on the same research and technology and tailored to the individual. Your provider will review your medical history and lab results to create a custom-made treatment plan tailored to your body.

Natural IVF Treatment is a fertilization process that requires less medications and injections than traditional forms of IVF.

Mild IVF Treatment is a similar process but uses a mild dosage of drugs to help with fertility.

Traditional IVF Treatment uses high stimulation that’s designed to help couples overcome issues of infertility.

Ovarian Stimulation

The first step of IVF treatment is ovarian stimulation. During this phase, most protocols utilize medication that encourages the ovaries to develop multiple follicles, each of which may contain an egg.

Typically, more follicles lead to more eggs which lead to more embryos, which leads to a higher possibility of success. Many cycles will result in a handful of embryos that can be frozen and stored for future use.

After an initial consultation, the doctors will recommend a personalized protocol to get you the best results possible. Ovarian stimulation typically begins around day 3 of a cycle. Stimulation usually involves taking daily injectable medications for around ten days and will be followed closely with monitoring appointments. When follicles reach the appropriate size, a final “trigger” medication will be used to induce ovulation and promote final maturation of the eggs.

Egg Retrieval

Egg Retrieval is a minor outpatient procedure done to collect the eggs from the ovaries so that they can be fertilized in our state-state-of-the-art laboratory.

It is performed 35-36 hours after the “trigger”, by one of our world class doctors.

The number of eggs retrieved depends on your age, history, diagnoses, ovarian reserve cycle plan and response to medications.

Sperm Collection

Sperm Collection is a straightforward procedure conducted at our clinic to gather sperm samples for further processing in our state-of-the-art laboratory.

The quantity and quality of sperm collected are influenced by various factors, including your individual circumstances, medical history, and response to any prescribed medications.

Fertilization Methods

The next major step of IVF takes place on site in our state-of-the-art embryology lab. After maturation is reached, the eggs are ready to be fertilized by our world-class embryologists. There are generally three methods of fertilization:

Embryo Development

Once the fertilization process is complete, the embryos are nurtured to day 3-5 or until the embryo reaches the 8-cell or blastocyst stage.

If an embryo is grown to a blastocyst, it can undergo genetic testing. This is recommended on a case by case basis.

Embryo Transfers

The last step of IVF treatment is the embryo transfer. After developing in optimal conditions in our cutting edge lab, the embryo is ready to be transferred. During the transfer, the embryo(s) are placed in the catheter, gently inserted past the cervix and offloaded to plant within the uterus.

Any remaining embryos that are not transferred can be frozen and used for embryo transfers at a later date.
