Answering Common Questions About Kingwood IVF

Starting your fertility journey with IVF is an exciting time but it can also be daunting if you don’t know what to expect. It’s normal to feel anxious because we know what it means to you to grow your family. At our Kingwood fertility clinic, we provide expert care with a personal touch as we help families blossom. To alleviate some of your worries, we’ve put together some commonly asked questions about Kingwood IVF.

Who is Kingwood IVF for?

Kingwood IVF is for couples and single people struggling to get pregnant after trying the traditional way for 1 year. It’s also for men and women who have medical conditions that cause infertility. Examples of such conditions in women are endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes, and poor egg quality. For men, they may have infertility if they have a low sperm count or sperm blockage. Since women’s eggs diminish as they get older, North Houston IVF is also recommended to women who are 35 years old and above.

What happens during IVF?

Your fertility doctor will prescribe injectable medications to stimulate egg production. These injections are usually taken within a 10 to 12-day period followed by other medications to trigger ovulation. You then go in for egg retrieval, which is a minor surgery where a needle is inserted into an ovary. The eggs are removed through a gentle suction. In the lab, the eggs are fertilized with donor sperm or that of the intended father. After preimplantation genetic testing, the healthy embryos are transferred to the uterus of the intended mother or of a surrogate.

Is IVF painful?

Egg retrieval in Kingwood IVF is an invasive procedure, but you will be given anesthesia, so you won’t feel much. After retrieval, you may feel cramping similar to menstrual cramping. This will go away after a day or so.

What are my chances of success?

The chances of a successful pregnancy from Kingwood IVF vary from person to person. It will depend on factors like your medical history, response to medication, and age. Although there is no guarantee, working with an experienced and renowned fertility clinic may increase your chances of success. 

How long will treatment last?

The average cycle of Kingwood IVF is around 6 weeks from the day of consultation at our North Houston fertility clinic, but it will differ from person to person. If a cycle is unsuccessful, you can try again. More cycles mean more treatment time.
