UNDERSTANDING IVF / IUI
In vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination (IUI) are advanced reproductive technologies that assist individuals and couples in achieving pregnancy when natural conception is challenging. These procedures offer hope and opportunities for individuals facing fertility concerns and are conducted under the guidance of reproductive specialists.
IVF involves the retrieval of eggs from the ovaries and fertilization with sperm in a laboratory setting. The resulting embryos are then transferred into the uterus to establish pregnancy. IUI, on the other hand, involves the placement of prepared sperm directly into the uterus, bypassing the need for sperm to travel through the fallopian tubes to reach the egg.
Symptoms of IVF / IUI
Undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI) involves various medical procedures and hormonal interventions that may result in specific symptoms. Some of these symptoms may include:
- Mild bloating or abdominal discomfort
- Breast tenderness or swelling
- Fatigue or tiredness
- Mood swings or emotional changes
- Cramping or pelvic discomfort
- Nausea or digestive disturbances
