It would seem that it is the right of every woman to hold her own child in her arms. However, for some women, starting a pregnancy can be extremely difficult. They may have a partner whose sperm is not up to par, or they may have some physical problems themselves which prevents the pregnancy from occurring. Whatever the problem is, these can be helped usually by specialists in the field of medicine who go out of their way to give the woman what she so rightly deserves. For those who are interested in ‘in vitro fertilization’ clinics, try entering something like ‘IVF’ or ‘infertility’, to see which clinics operate in that particular area.
The act of taking an egg from a woman is not always easy of course. She may have to undergo some hormone injections which can be quite painful. On top of this she will have all kinds of physical effects which will make her feel bad for some time. She will be bloated and moody too and she will probably be difficult to live with while she is preparing her body for the egg donation procedure. However, most women will accept this to get the baby that they want at the end of the day.
Once her eggs are ready for harvesting, the specialist will go in and get them out. As one can imagine, this procedure is difficult since the eggs are absolutely tiny. This is usually done through a fine needle into the stomach but it is not painful as she will be under anesthetic. The doctor will then examine the eggs to see which ones are viable and, once this has been done, they will be mixed with sperm in a glass dish so that fertilization can take place. Sometimes it is possible to insert one single sperm into one single egg but this is used for those men who do not have much sperm.
Once the eggs are incubated and embryos form, several will be taken and placed into the womb of the woman. The others will be frozen for future use should this first insertion not take hold. In days gone by, women would be implanted with several embryos but these days this is not really done. She may get twins or triplets, but no more. The days when seven or eight babies would be born are now long gone as this is dangerous for the mother and children alike. This all may sound very simple but it does take some dedication from the would be parents and the doctors alike to start the pregnancy. It is also quite expensive too so several tries at this could leave the couple in debt. However, ask any mother would they do it all again and the resounding answer would be yes, of course!
Finding the right clinic then to get this work done is paramount and the woman must feel extremely comfortable with her doctors. Check the clinic out on the internet first to see which ones get the best reviews.
