In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a widely used assisted reproductive technology that can help individuals or couples overcome infertility and achieve pregnancy. The process of IVF involves several stages, each of which is critical to the success of the procedure. In this article, we will discuss in detail the different stages of IVF and how Aashakiran IVF is using this technique to help patients achieve their fertility goals.

  • Ovarian Stimulation: The first stage of IVF involves ovarian stimulation, in which the woman is given medication to stimulate the development of multiple follicles in the ovaries. This is done to increase the chances of obtaining multiple viable eggs for fertilization.

At Aashakiran IVF, our experienced team of doctors monitors the patient’s response to ovarian stimulation using ultrasound and blood tests. The dosage of medication is adjusted as needed to ensure optimal results.

  • Egg Retrieval: Once the follicles have matured, the eggs are retrieved from the ovaries using a needle guided by ultrasound. This is typically done under light sedation or anesthesia to minimize discomfort.

At Aashakiran IVF, the retrieved eggs are immediately transferred to the embryology lab for fertilization.

  • Sperm Preparation: The male partner provides a semen sample, which is prepared in the laboratory to obtain the most viable and motile sperm. This may involve washing and separating the sperm from other components of the semen.

If needed, Aashakiran IVF also offers sperm freezing for patients who cannot be present on the day of egg retrieval or for those undergoing cancer treatment.

  • Fertilization: The retrieved eggs are then fertilized with the prepared sperm in the laboratory. There are two methods of fertilization: conventional IVF, in which the sperm and eggs are placed in a dish together and allowed to fertilize naturally, or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in which a single sperm is injected directly into the egg.

At Aashakiran IVF, we use both conventional IVF and ICSI to optimize fertilization rates.

  • Embryo Development: After fertilization, the embryos are cultured in the laboratory for several days to allow them to develop. At Aashakiran IVF, we use time-lapse imaging to monitor embryo development and select the most viable embryos for transfer.
  • Embryo Transfer: Once the embryos have developed, they are transferred to the woman’s uterus in a simple outpatient procedure. This typically involves inserting a small catheter through the cervix and into the uterus.

At Aashakiran IVF, we aim to transfer the fewest number of embryos necessary to achieve a successful pregnancy, reducing the risk of multiple pregnancies.

  • Pregnancy Test: Approximately two weeks after embryo transfer, a pregnancy test is performed to determine if the procedure was successful. If the test is positive, the patient is advised to continue with prenatal care to ensure a healthy pregnancy.


IVF is a complex procedure that involves multiple stages, each of which is critical to the success of the procedure. At Aashakiran IVF, our experienced team of doctors and embryologists use the latest techniques and technology to optimize each stage of IVF and increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. By providing personalized care and support throughout the IVF process, we aim to help our patients achieve their fertility goals and start their families.
