What to Expect with IVF
In this video, Susan Bacon, a registered nurse (RN) at Women & Infants’ Fertility Center, explains in detail what you can expect during an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. In short, IVF involves five steps: Ovulation induction, egg and sperm retrieval, egg fertilization, embryo development (with genetic testing if needed), and transferring the embryo to the uterus.
IVF may seem complicated and even overwhelming at times. Our doctors, nurses and support staff will help you understand each step of the process, providing care, guidance and instruction as the cycle unfolds. You might even find it helpful to refer back to this video as you progress through treatment.
