Couples are usually skeptical about IVF treatment and have the pre-conceived notion about it. They have doubts about the baby being normal and this myth has to be eroded at any cost. They feel it is an artificial delivery and there is nothing natural about it. The couples feel that the baby is not an offshoot of natural sexual intercourse. This is definitely an untruth that is being spread by those who are conservative in attitude and approach to life in general.
IVF children are born as normal as other children as far as their physical attributes, as well as mental capacities, are concerned. They are born as normal as other children. One must seek professional advice on this matter and get the appropriate information rather than go through heresy.
No doubt as far as IVF is concerned, the doctor does insert the embryo into one’s uterus of women through the cervix, the process of women getting pregnant hereafter is of course as normal as it happens in case of sexual intercourse between the partners. One must clearly realize that the ART technology that is being used during the IVF treatment does stand for Assisted Reproductive Technology and not for Artificial Reproductive Technology as is usually understood.
The basic difference between IVF and the normal process is that in the case of IVF, the sperms and eggs are fertilized in the lab under the supervision of seasoned doctors. The fusion happens to take place in the test tube instead of Fallopian tube. Couples opt for IVF because either male partner is not able to produce sperms or high-quality sperm, or the female partner is unable to produce the required eggs or high-quality eggs or if there happens to be a blockage in Fallopian tubes. Their sexual intercourse does lead to the production of the produce embryo hence the female partner is unable to conceive. The fertilization, as well as fusion of eggs in the lab, is no doubt an alternative of sexual intercourse.
What is the IVF process?
Once the embryo is actually produced by the fusion of sperm as well as eggs in the lab, it is transferred into the uterus of the woman. And after that, the entire process is totally same as in the usual case. After the embryo is transferred into one’s uterus, the woman does get pregnant and gives birth to a child after the given time.
IVF babies are indeed as normal as other children. In fact, until one is told, it is indeed impossible to distinguish between IVF baby as well as other children.
It is but obvious that one can safely have a child via IVF as well. One need not worry that the baby is being delivered through artificial methods. A childless couple’s innermost desire is to have the child and that too a normal child. One’s dreams can be fulfilled via IVF and one need not hesitate in opting for this form of pregnancy treatment.
