Hi, I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. PCOS is a relatively common condition that affects many women. Women who have PCOS do face more challenges with regards to fertility due to the lack of ovulation during their menstrual cycle. However, this definitely does not mean that a wo...

Hepatitis B is transmitted from mother to child at birth, not at the time of conception. Hence, Hepatitis B is not an issue for IVF, as the virus cannot be transmitted at IVF. If the IVF is successful, you would be no different from many other Hepatitis B mothers. To prevent tra...

Hi, thanks for the D2D. Both methods can be effective, but a lot depends on your medical condition and the causes of your subfertility in the first place. IUI is relatively simple, less invasive, less costly and less time-consuming, but the success rates are lower. Certain ex...

Thanks for the D2D. IVF is one end of a spectrum of fertility treatment options, and it is usually used when all other methods have not worked. There are simpler means of conceiving, from ultrasound scans to tracking egg development and timing of ovulation, pills to enhance the...

Hi Wen Hui, Thanks for the D2D. If you have decided on doing IVF, then the most important thing is not to delay or procrastinate any further. Consult your fertility doctor as soon as possible, and bring all available medical records and/or medication with you during your first c...

Thanks for the D2D. This really depends on the reason why you had to do IVF in the first instance. If IVF was done because you felt it was the fastest way to have a baby, or if you failed to conceive naturally even though no obvious cause was found, then the next pregnancy may ...
21 Sep 2018
I am happy to say IVF in this day and age carries very few risks to the women undergoing such treatment. The most dreaded was the Hyperstimulation Syndrome where the number of eggs retrieved was in the region of above 30. The present protocols are safer and reduce dramatically th...

The only painful part of the whole IVF process is the Oocyte retrieval and this is very often done under a light General Aneaesthetic. The daily injections of the stimulant are very often bearable-like an “ant-bite”.

Like I have mentioned in a previous answer on IVF failure in Singapore , you need to try and identify the cause of the failures. The most difficult to rectify is the poor quality Oocyte. There are experimental techniques like transplanting the nuclear material to a healthy donor...

This is not necessarily a true statement. It all depends on the reason for the Infertility. The success in achieving a pregnancy can be as high as 40-50% if it is purely due to blocked or damaged tubes, but the quality of the eggs and sperm are good and there is no abnormality to...
