  • 1.What is IVF

As a result, you will receive a report from the physician at KIC – Chennai on the quality and number of embryos and discuss a suitable number of embryos to be transferred. Any extra embryos can later be frozen for use.

  • 5.Can Fibroids Interfere With IVF?

    Fibroids are benign tumors made up of fibrous tissue and muscles that grow in the uterus. The significance of the Fibroids relates not only to their size, but also to their location. Even small fibroids located inside the cavity of the uterus where the embryos need to be implanted may interface with success and need to be removed. Fibroids that do not encroach on the cavity of the uterus are generally not significant unless they are larger than 5 cm in diameter and if there are many fibroids that cause significant enlargement of the uterus.

Patients needing IVF AND suffering from Endometriosis often have the same chances of success as patients of the same age without Endometriosis as long as immunological factors that may affect Endometriosis are recognized and treated accordingly.
