If you’re considering In Vitro fertilization in Nigeria, most commonly referred to as IVF, you likely have many questions. This curiosity is normal as IVF is an expensive and lengthy process that requires conscience research and deliberation before pursuing it.

There is, however, a whole host of data available to give you a broader picture of how successful IVF may be for you.

What is IVF?

IVF is a process by which eggs are externally fertilized and transferred into a uterus to be carried to term. It is used most commonly by families experiencing a variety of infertility issues.

Stages of IVF Treatment

IVF is a multi-step process. The precise steps you will need (or elect) to take vary from family to family. In general, IVF treatment includes harvesting eggs and sperm, fertilizing the egg in a laboratory to create an embryo and planting the embryo in a uterus and/or freezing them for later use. In preparation for IVF treatment, women usually go through fertility treatments with medications and injections to increase the likelihood of success.

 From start to embryo implantation, the typical IVF cycle lasts 6-8 weeks and includes the following stages:

  1. Fertility medication (stimulating the ovaries)
  2. Trigger injection (injection of medicine that induces the final maturation stage of eggs)
  3. Egg and sperm collection
  4. Embryo growth in lab
  5. Embryo implantation
