What is IVF?
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment procedure used nowadays that allows the egg cell from the female and the sperm cell from the male to fertilize outside of the body. These cells are kept in a sterile and high-technology laboratory that IVF Sydney uses until it has grown and is ready to be transferred to the female’s uterus where the rest of the pregnancy will continue.
IVF Sydney has been successfully doing this procedure for years with clients who have had unsuccessful attempts at conceiving a child.

Frequently asked questions about In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
How would I know if I need a fertility treatment?
Every woman has a different experience when it comes to childbearing. Some may reach 40 and can still become pregnant easily while some 30-something women can’t even reach fertilization.
As a standard, if you are 35 years old and above, trying to conceive for more than 6 months OR below 35 years old and trying to conceive for 12 months to no avail, you may try and get fertility advice from IVF Sydney. This will not automatically subject you to fertility procedures, but you may be advised to perform different fertility tests to make sure if there really is a problem.
How does the in vitro fertilization work?
During your initial consultation, the IVF Sydney fertility specialist will discuss and review with you your medical history, all tests and its results, and the treatment options that may be suitable to your condition. Questions will all be answered and when an agreement as to what procedure to be performed has been reached, consent forms will be furnished and additional advice on precautions and other restrictions will be imposed so as not to interrupt with the treatment plan. Full disclosure of the whole treatment procedure and its possible results will be discussed and treatment will begin once consent has been given. Certain medications will be given, such as Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) injections. This stimulates the ovaries to produce egg cells more productively than normal. Routine blood tests will be taken by our IVF Sydney medical personnel to measure the hormone levels as well as ultrasound monitoring to measure the amount of developing ovarian follicles. Once we reached the target number and size of the ovarian follicles egg collection now takes place by getting a trigger injection of hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) at night, and the egg collection procedure to be done 36 to 38 hours later. The procedure usually lasts for 4 hours and you may go home afterward with a companion to drive you home and taking the rest of the day off work. Your partner will then be advised to collect a fresh semen sample the same day of your egg collection so that fertilization of the egg will take place immediately.
IVF Sydney has a laboratory where collected eggs and semen samples are stored and prepared for egg fertilization. An egg and a certain amount of semen will be placed in a petri dish where the process of fertilization occurs. Once joined, the specimen is now called an embryo and is placed in an incubator that is set to an atmosphere that mimics the woman’s uterus. Any development of the embryo will be noted and relayed to you by our IVF Sydney specialists.
Once an embryo is successfully fertilized within 5 days from the egg collection, you will be requested to report to the clinic where the transfer of the embryo will take place. A minor day surgery using a fine catheter passing through your cervix into the uterus will happen to transfer the embryo. You may also be advised to have the remaining fertilized embryos to be kept frozen in case the first IVF cycle is deemed unsuccessful. Two weeks after the transfer of the embryo, your IVF Sydney fertility nurse will then request you to have a pregnancy blood test to determine the success of the process. If deemed successful, an ultrasound 3 weeks after will be requested to monitor the development of your pregnancy.
What are the forms of IVF that I need to know?
There are two forms of in vitro fertilization that IVF Sydney recommends to their clients. These are Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) or A frozen embryo transfer (FET).
- Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a type of IVF procedure that is utilized when there is severe male infertility. It involves using a micro-manipulation equipment to inject a single sperm carefully inside the egg cell to kickstart the fertilization process.
- A frozen embryo transfer (FET) is another type of IVF where a frozen embryo harvested from a previous IVF cycle is used by thawing it and transferring it to the woman’s uterus. It is usual in IVF where you can create more than one embryo within the whole cycle. This is where we recommend using one embryo during the initial fertilization and freezing the rest so that if the first one is unsuccessful, there are still embryos available for fertilization.
When I visit you or contact your clinic, will that mean I’m already going to have IVF treatment?
Of course not! Coming to our clinic or talking to us only means that you are having a bit of a hard time conceiving and would need professional advice. You may be doing something wrong and would need advice on the correct timing and ovulation information that may hinder you from conceiving. Feel free to consult one of our IVF Sydney specialists for more information and counseling.
Can any doctor do the job?
Basically, any doctor can explain and help you with basic information about concepts and procedures on how to become pregnant. However, choosing a fertility specialist will still be the best way to successfully conceive as they have the knowledge and experience to assist you in correctly planning on how to conceive. Contact IVF Sydney and our friendly fertility nurses are more than willing to help you choose from our wide selection of credible and professional fertility specialists in Sydney.
What do I need to do before I consult a fertility specialist?
After consulting your GP (general practitioner) about your problem, he will furnish a referral letter for you to consult a fertility specialist. Having a referral from your GP is important because it somehow shows that certain measures have been made to aid in conceiving but was still unsuccessful. This helps in figuring out the cause of the problem and certain tests may be made to confirm these with your fertility specialist.
