What are the different IVF treatment options ?

Whenever we offer patients options during the right way of treatment, they often get confused. So, for example, for older women when they can't get pregnant with their own eggs because they have run out of eggs, one option is using donor eggs, which is someone else's eggs and their husband's sperm, and they carry the baby or do their embryos, which is someone else's eggs and someone else's sperm, which they carry in the uterus and then give birth to the baby Embryo adoption is actually a form of in utero adoption, which means you're adopting a baby that doesn't have either your DNA or your husband's DNA; it's coming from another couple.

But you're the one who is pregnant; you're the one who's going to carry the pregnancy; you're the one who's going to give birth to the baby, and it's going to be your name on the birth certificate. So, even though it's an adoption, it's something only you and your husband know. No one else in the world does, which actually has lots of advantages because you don't necessarily need to share exactly what you've done in order to get pregnant with the rest of the world.

The good news is that you now have an option. You can choose between a donor egg and a donor embryo. Both of these have pros and cons, and there's no one right answer. So, for example, a donor embryo is usually less expensive than a donor egg because these embryos have already been generated and then it's just a question of transferring them into your uterus.

Where do they come from? We don't manufacture them These are spare super numerals that other infertile couples who have done treatment for themselves have generated for themselves and frozen in stock. But because they got pregnant in their own IVF cycle, they're happy to donate these embryos to another infertile couple. And this is a very good way of creating a family and the success rates with both donor egg and donor embryo are good, but when patients have choices, it shouldn't be the doctor who tells them which choice they should adopt, it should be the patient who decides for themselves. You need to own that decision for yourself. It's very tempting to just dump everything on the doctor's plate Yes, Dr., you’re the expert. I'm paying you the fees. You tell me what to do. You tell me what's right. It's very easy for the doctor to tell you what to do, but the doctor is not a mind reader. The doctor doesn't know what's going on in your head or what's going on in your heart.

You're the one who has to lead your life, and if you make an informed decision, you'll be at peace with yourself, you'll love your child, and that will make you and your child happy; but if you make a decision you're not happy with because someone else told you to, and that someone else could be a doctor, your husband, your mother-in-law, or whoever, you're not going to be happy, and if you're miserable, you'll keep Remember, there is no right answer.

What is possible is for you to follow the right process to come to the answer which is right for you. Because 10 different couples will come up with 10 different solutions, each one needs to find the solution which works well for them. The good news is that only you can decide and it's just a question of finding a doctor who is respectful, understands that you're the one in control, you're the one who makes the decisions, who will offer you these options, and then listen to you non-judgmentally, who will counsel you but will not tell you what to do and what not to do.

Good doctors will make sure that you don't make the wrong decision, but they will also offer you a choice of the right decisions so that you can choose what works best for you. If you then find a doctor-patient partnership can be invaluable .
