Now a days test tube baby technique is generally used to solve infertility problem.

IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology used for infertility treatment and gestational surrogacy, in which a fertilized egg is implanted into a surrogate's uterus, and the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate.

Asisted Reproductive Technology (ART)

ART involves the use of one or several techniques to bring the sperm and egg together, eliminating the chance element to conception and reducing or removing the need for the sperm to swim through the cervix and the fallopian tubes to meet the egg. ART techniques have revolutionised the management of infertility. In most instances, ART involves recovering the eggs from the ovaries and fertilising them with the sperm outside the body in the laboratory. The developing embryos are then replaced by artificially into the uterus.

The Assisted Reproductive Technology(ART) programme at SAFAL HOSPITAL is one of the leading programmes of its type with many breakthroughs in the field of assisted reproduction.

Headed by Dr. Shilpi Sud and supported by the team of specialists, it is committed to improving the fertility through ART.

Pre-IVF Counselling

Pre-IVF counselling is essential to couples going for IVF programme. Pre-IVF can be done at our clinic prior to starting the programme.

Our clinic staff will assist your enquiries. Should there be any additional need, a return visit to the attending IVF specialist may also be scheduled after the pre-IVF counselling.


Is used to overcome a range of infertility issues, by which an egg and sperm are joined together outside the body in specialised laboratory. Embryos are allowed to grow in protected environment for some days before being transferred into women’s uterus.

Modification of this technology like ICSI, oocyte donation and Surrogacy has tremendously improved the outcome in infertility treatment.


A) Who requires IVF ?

Generally, IVF may be used in following situations:

  1. When there is a damage to the fallopian tubes such that sperm is unable to meet the egg.
  2. Reduced sperm count or sperm is abnormal.
  3. Women who have problems with cervical mucus.
  4. Women with irregular menses or severe endometriosis.
  5. After failed intrauterine insemination (IUI).
B) How is IVF performed ?

There are several stages in the procedure. The aims of the IVF treatment are:

  1. To stimulate the wife’s ovaries to produce an optimum number of eggs.
  2. To fertilise the eggs with the husband’s sperm in the laboratory.
  3. To replace the embryos in the uterus at a specified time.
  4. To support the implantation of the embryo.
C) How long does it take to complete one cycle ?
  1. It takes about 4-6 weeks to complete one cycle.
D) What side effect and complication will I expect ?

There are several stages in the procedure. The aims of the IVF treatment are:

  1. The most common complication from this programme is overstimulation of the ovaries as a result of hormone injections. This causes lower abdominal swelling water retention, difficulty in breathing and discomfort. In addition, there is usually more than one embryo replaced, so there is a chance of multiple births.
  2. In DIVA, this problem is minimised by careful selection of doses of drugs used and close monitoring of the follicular development. The incidence of this complication is less than 2%.
