Welcome to the world of miracles, where every day at India IVF Fertility, we help turn dreams into reality. With branches in Delhi, Noida, and Gurgaon, we are committed to helping couples navigate the often turbulent journey of fertility treatments. This blog post will shed light on an important topic – how to prevent miscarriage during IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). It’s a delicate topic, no doubt, but with the right knowledge, it is manageable.
A miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week1. It’s a heart-wrenching experience for any hopeful parents-to-be. During IVF, the emotional investment can make this event even more challenging.
IVF itself does not directly reduce the risk of miscarriage. However, techniques associated with IVF, such as PGT, can help select embryos with the highest chance of leading to a healthy pregnancy.
The risk of miscarriage decreases as the pregnancy progresses. In the initial weeks following embryo transfer, the risk is highest. However, once the pregnancy reaches the 12th week, the risk significantly decreases.
PGT significantly reduces the risk of miscarriage, especially for couples with a history of recurrent miscarriages or advanced maternal age.
Frozen embryo transfer (FET) has been shown to result in lower miscarriage rates compared to fresh embryo transfers.
While miscarriage after IVF can be a devastating experience, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk. The journey to becoming parents through IVF can be filled with challenges, but remember, you are not alone. Clinics like India IVF Fertility are with you every step of the way.
Yes, the risk of miscarriage increases with age, particularly for women aged 35 and above.
Lifestyle changes such as adopting a healthy diet, regular exercise, quitting smoking, and limiting alcohol and caffeine can help reduce the risk of miscarriage.
The miscarriage rate after IVF varies depending on several factors such as maternal age, presence of chronic conditions, lifestyle factors, and the use of PGT.
IVF itself does not increase the chance of miscarriage. However, the underlying fertility issues that lead people to undergo IVF may increase the risk.
PGT can help identify embryos with genetic abnormalities, thereby reducing the risk of miscarriage.
Recent research suggests that frozen embryo transfer (FET) results in lower miscarriage rates compared to fresh embryo transfers.
Signs of miscarriage after IVF include heavy bleeding, often with clots, severe abdominal pain, and a substantial decrease in pregnancy symptoms.
While not all miscarriages can be prevented, following steps such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing chronic conditions, and opting for genetic testing can significantly reduce the risk.
