    IVF is a costly procedure and can take up a lot of your personal time. It can also be stressful and mentally draining, especially if you and your partner are struggling to conceive and have to go through several cycles of IVF before getting pregnant. Stress and anxiety can become big risks during the IVF process. There are several medical risks when you use IVF, including. Multiple births. If you become pregnant with multiple babies, you may have a higher risk of early labor. A premature delivery and a low birth weight. Ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome. This occurs when your ovaries become swollen and painful. A miscarriage. Though the rate of miscarriage for women who conceive using IVF is similar to that of women who conceive naturally, the rate can increase as the age of the mother increases. Complications during the egg-retrieval procedure. An ectopic pregnancy. About 2 to 5 percent of women who use IVF will have an ectopic pregnancy.

    Well explained post. You covered almost everything. Despite this IVF is very successful.It does help dozens of women.I believe in no pain no gain. In the end, you have to bear some pain. Isn’t this true?


    Are you trying to scare us? LOL, just kidding. I know it’s best to know the pros and cons. Knowing only the benefits can prove wrong in many cases. I am infertile. I did consider IVF at one point. However, I was afraid. I didn’t have it because I didn’t want to lose the baby if I did get pregnant. I have endometriosis. It gradually worsened. I had to get a hysterectomy. In that case, I couldn’t have IVF even if I wanted to. It was then that we decided this is it. We knew we wanted a baby and must get one. We had surrogacy for that. Now I’m very happy with my baby.


    Are you kidding with us? It’s better to know both pros and cons. Only positive views can not even help you to get out of it. I am infertile. I have also experienced IVF. In any case, I was anxious and worried. Finally, I got pregnant. I have endometriosis. It slowly declined. I needed to get a hysterectomy. I couldn’t have IVF regardless of whether I needed to. Finally, we tried to go for something else. We knew we needed an infant and must get one. We had surrogacy. Now, I’m enjoying the colors of life!


    hey! I do agree with you on so many things,
    A must-read post. good one.
    but you missed out something. There are many individuals who got to conceive through IVF.
    Its just about circumstances. It’s not that bad.
    I agree that there are so many cycles that probably make you mentally and physically sick.
    even I dropped this thing after two failures as of I knew that it would be much hectic to afford more cycles.
    but I never opposed these procedures.
    most of the individuals are finding much good and success in this procedure.
    and I am happy for them.
    I have a friend who conceived in the second cycle.
    and even I came across to women on this forum who conceived in a very first cycle.
    There are pros and cons to each procedure you take.
    but the success rates talks out loud that each procedure is great in its own way,
    If you got the good eggs then you are good to go.
    but donor eggs are even doing miracles.
    Thier is a quiet balanced equation.


    it’s best to know the upsides and downsides. Knowing just the advantages can demonstrate wrong as a rule. I am fruitless. I considered IVF at a certain point. Be that as it may, I was apprehensive. I didn’t have it since I would not like to lose the infant on the off chance that I got pregnant. I have endometriosis. It bit by bit intensified. I needed to get a hysterectomy. All things considered, I couldn’t have IVF regardless of whether I needed to. It was then that we concluded this is it. We knew we needed an infant and must get one. We had surrogacy for that. Presently I’m exceptionally content with my child.


    Thousands of women have fertility treatments including IVF every year. IVF has been proven to be safe over time. However, in very rare cases, there may be complications which can be serious. The drugs used for ovarian stimulation have mild side effects for some women. Including mild bruising and soreness at the injection site, headaches, an upset stomach, and mood swings. Another side effect is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS.) This happens when the ovaries produce many follicles and fluid may leak from the blood vessels into the abdominal cavity and lungs. Usually this is mild and resolves on its own without treatment. In severe cases OHSS can result in very enlarged ovaries, dehydration, and large amounts of fluid in the lungs and abdomen. Fertility doctors can moderate the amount of drugs being prescribed or alter the medication regimen if they see any indication of potential trouble.

    Hello Tifanny! Thanks for sharing such an informative post about IVF. Yes! It’s really hard for a couple. I’m also undergoing one in July of this year at a repro center in Ukraine. But, I’m prepared for it. I think it really does deserve to become a mother. No matter what happens! Completing a family is very important for someone. So, yeah. It’s my first attempt at 5 years of trying uselessly! So, now it’s my hope. I need this to work for me. Wish me luck! Stay blessed ladies! xoxo 🙂 S/O to those are are still trying hard! Baby dust <3

    HI, tiff. Thank you for sharing such valuable information with us here. I do agree with you. But every person wants to carry their own baby. If IVF is giving them a chance to do that, so they go for it. It costs a lot of money and time. But I know of a clinic that has started doing it at a very affordable rate. So I think it is okay to go for it now.


    Hey. How do you do? It is really an informative post. I think everybody should read this. Thanks for sharing. I totally agree with you on this. It is good to know both the aspects of a certain thing. One must know the pros and cons before trying something. Despite this, so many woman have tried IVF. And, thankfully they got successful result from it. My friend is now a mother only because of IVF. When all her hopes were shattered IVF gave a ray of hope. With the passage of time, its success rate is also increasing. Many women who are a victim of PCOS give IVF a try. I have heard that it works best for the females with PCOS. So, I won’t suggest not to try this procedure.


    Hi, Thanks for sharing informative post. You explained everything. I am glad i found your post. I do agree with you. Everyone wants to carry their own baby. But it is impossible for few. For those, i think surrogacy is the best option. It is better than adoption. At least child belongs to you genetically. Also the treatment is 100% guaranteed. Surrogacy cost is very low as compared to IVF. There are many clinics offering good treatment in affordable price. I am an infertile. I also went through it. I am living happily with the surrogate child of mine.


    Hey, I want to share what I know. I have been searching for surrogacy and considering it for more than six months. We were recommended a clinic on our tour to Europe. So upon returning I researched the clinic, the website, the vlogs they do. The surrogate experiences etc. I and OH searched other clinic located in different countries. However, the data comparison and success rate took us to Eastern Europe. The prices are economical. We then visited the clinic, made sure that the doctors are skilled, the place is equipped with advanced ART and how they keep track of the health of surrogates. We found out that the surrogate is well kept, and go through regular tests and screening to ensure that the surrogate is at her best health to carry a child for intended parents. So the cost depends on what sort of the clinic you are choosing and what are they providing. Mine has provided accommodation too. So that has saved us from several trips from the hotel to clinic. Good Luck!!

    Hey Tiffany. How are you? I hope you’re okay. This is a brilliant post. It’s really informative. I’m glad you took out the time to talk about it. IVF is definitely something that we need to talk about. People opt for it without doing background research. It ends up costing them a lot of money. Which defeats the purpose of going for IVF. IVF is still a blessing if done properly and with the proper clinic as well. I’m glad more people are talking about it. Spreading awareness is really important. Thank you for this post. Good luck!

    Hi there! Well, yes! That’s how it goes! but, I also would like to add that nearly 40% cases of IVF are successful. Yes! It works in that way. I’m personally undergoing my first attempt next month to a repro center in Ukraine for it. Yeah! So, wish me luck! I’m a PCOS patient, had several MCs. So, now it’s really a chance for people like us to have a child. Anyway! Stay blessed! xx Thanks for sharing an informative post with others.

    Hey. I second you. I know IVF is not so successful every time because it causes complications. I also had the same situation when I first heard about my infertility. I wanted a big family but that was not in fate. I was so disappointed so I decided to go for IVF. I chose a clinic in my country. It was so painful process. But after all its pain it failed. I decided to go for surrogacy. I found a reputed clinic for surrogacy. I asked my husband he was agreed. I went to the clinic and they provided me with a healthy surrogate. Just after few weeks, she got pregnant. We were so happy. Our dream came true when she gave birth to a healthy baby. Today I am blessed with the baby. I am so happy to have my baby. Surrogacy is a blessing indeed. It’s less expensive and much better than IVF.
