Are there any risks in having a baby through IVF?
While some data suggest that IVF-conceived children have a little greater rate of birth abnormalities than the general population (4 to 5% vs. 3%), it’s conceivable that this difference is attributable to factors other than IVF treatment.
It’s vital to remember that birth defects affect roughly 3% of all births in the general population for significant malformations and 6% if lesser defects are included. According to recent studies, the rate of significant birth abnormalities in IVF-conceived offspring could be in the range of 4 to 5%. This slightly higher proportion of abnormalities has also been found in children born following IUI and naturally-conceived siblings of IVF children, suggesting that the risk factor is endemic to this patient population rather than the method used to produce conception.
According to research, IVF-conceived children perform on par with the general population in terms of academic success, as well as behavioural and psychological health. More research is being conducted to learn more about this critical subject.
Will the egg retrieval damage my ovaries?
No. Some women, such as egg donors, may have several Egg Retrieval procedures, and there is no evidence that these procedures cause long-term difficulties. Of course, there are certain short-term hazards, such as infection or bleeding, but these are relatively unusual occurrences. Ovaries appear to be unaffected by stimulation and egg retrieval, according to studies.
Can I expect bleeding after my egg retrieval process?
Following egg retrieval, you may experience some spotting and cramps. Needles punctures in the vaginal wall are most likely the cause of this bleeding. Bleeding and cramping should be light and less intense than during your typical period.
