Questions and answers on "In vitro fertilization"

I have had a failed IVF. Why do they ask you to wait 3 months before retrying? We are still trying naturally and this month I had a late period which is very unlike me and thought I had some pregnancy symptoms (slight nausea in early morning and fatigue). I'm wondering about the issue of oestrageon / progesteron balance? Could it be my hormones are not balanced correctly since the IVF?

Hope you are fine now.

I hope you know during IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) they first suppress your ovaries (something like a false menopause) and then stimulate them to produce eggs. Even if fertilization does not occur and IVF fails some effects of ovarian stimulation remain and you may...

Dear Dr. Malpani, I have been advised to do an IVF as normal fertiity is not possible. Apparently my ultrasound of the pelvis shows that I have tortuous cystic structures closely related to the ovary and appear to be hydrosalphinx. Since it is hydrosalphinx situation, I have been advised to do a laproscopy to detach both the fallopin tubes and then go for IVF. My question is: is it important to do a kaproscopy to detach the fallopin tube, if yes will I have any compkication. Or I can go ahead with IVF withour laproscopy. Thanks and Regards Anandi
Can try some specific Ayurvedic treatments for that.Wish you all the best.

Hi, I've been married 7 yrs now, we had twins through IVF, they are 2. My husband works 12hrs shift 8-8, and I work weekend. We don't have any time together and no sex. I'm fine with it. No interest at all. We argue all the time, everything is a competition for my husband. He does notable the effort to put anything back in its place if I have left it out, let alone pick up his shit. When we are both home, he runs off and goes to the store, everything but be with us all, he seems to be hiding....How should I handle this?

Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes the preservation is not optimum and the embryos do not survive as well outside as they survive inside the uterus. It necessarily does not mean that the embryo implanted in you are also of a bad quality.
