IVF continues to be the famous fertility treatment option for achieving pregnancy unnaturally. Before during, and after the IVF treatment, various tests are performed to analyze the various hormonal levels and conditions of the patient undergoing the fertility treatment, and the number of tests includes various blood tests. Infertility is a pervasive issue affecting millions of people around the world and is a problem where the couple is deprived of becoming pregnant regardless of their repeated attempts of attaining conception and IVF is a fertility treatment done to help combat the issue of infertility.
Why is a blood test done?
A blood test is done to determine the hormonal levels of a woman, which are extremely essential to find out whether she has a responsive reproductive condition and hormone levels for an IVF treatment. Finding out the hormone levels helps the fertility specialist in identifying the most appropriate course of IVF treatment that conforms to the patient’s needs and will be highly beneficial in producing positive results in IVF. The fertility experts will give fertility medication or fertility drugs to the patient only after measuring their hormone levels via a blood test.
The doctor never begins and ends the IVF procedure without performing the blood tests. In the beginning, they are performed to finalize the course of medication, and a particular method of IVF to be adopted for effectuating the best results. In the end, they are done to confirm the occurrence of pregnancy. There are also other tests performed such as AMH (Anti-mullerian hormone) level test, FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) test, etc.
Blood tests- for determining your medical condition and suitability for IVF
Before even deciding whether IVF is a perfect treatment option or when the couples are pondering over the thought of undergoing IVF, some blood tests are done to measure the FSH levels of the patient. The FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) helps in recognizing the number of healthy and fertile eggs available in a patient’s ovarian reserve. Besides determining the FSH levels, blood tests also aid in identifying any genetic disorders, infections, diseases, and other serious conditions that may be detrimental to the success in IVF treatment.
The right time to perform a Pre-IVF blood test
A pre-IVF blood test is performed to find out any hormonal changes in the woman right before beginning the IVF treatment and is usually performed on the third day of the menstrual cycle of the woman. However, the right time for your pre-IVF blood test is determined only after you consult with your fertility expert as he may suggest something else for you in accordance with your medical condition.
Blood test for confirming pregnancy
Once the embryo transfer is done which the transfer of the embryo to the recipient’s uterus that is formed by combining and fertilizing the eggs in a laboratory setting, now the only thing left to do is waiting for pregnancy. The eggs are taken out from the woman’s ovaries in the process of egg retrieval and are introduced back inside her womb in the form of an embryo. Pregnancy is confirmed by measuring the presence of the hCG (human chronic gonadotropin), which is a pregnancy hormone indicating that pregnancy has occurred. The blood test is done after two weeks of embryo transfer and the positive results mean success in IVF or results otherwise can lead to the failure in the IVF cycle.
