IVF Malaysia: Things you should know
Just like in many other countries around the world, there is an option for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in Malaysia. IVF Malaysia can be done in different places around town, including the Damansara fertility center called TMC Fertility Center. IVF is a process of joining of a woman’s egg with a man’s sperm outside the body. This fertility treatment is not 100% successful, and the IVF Malaysia success rate is around 55%. Also, an IVF Malaysia price is around RM12000 to RM16000, which includes assisted insemination, in-vitro fertilization, blastocyst transfer, assisted hatching, freezing of sperm, and frozen embryo transfer. But before one considers doing an IVF, one should first talk to a gynecologist in KL before deciding.
Before pregnancy and doing an IVF, there are similar risks and problems that may cause an unsuccessful implantation. Hence, there are a few things one needs to know before doing an IVF. Firstly, one must choose an IVF doctor and center wisely. The TMC Fertility Center is a suggested center if one lives in Kuala Lumpur. Secondly, one must know that IVF’s are not 100% successful, hence there is a possibility of not getting pregnant even after it is done. Thirdly, one should find a friend to talk to throughout the entire process; it could be your partner, a friend or a family member.
One of the most important things to remember is that both you and your partner should keep in shape. A baby will carry both father’s and mother’s chromosome, hence, both parties should lead a healthy lifestyle 3 months leading up to the IVF procedure. One should stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking hot baths because these activities could affect the success rate, or can cause miscarriage after the IVF is done. Adequate nutrition and keeping a healthy weight range should be focused on, to give a higher success rate for an IVF.
Maintaining Healthy Lifestyle The Key to Successful IVF
During the IVF cycle, one should also find different ways to reduce stress. Doing some exercise like stretching, swimming and walking will help in lowering the stress level during the cycle. On top of that, it will also help to keep up ones good spirit. A high level of endorphins will counteract the effects of stress, so it is always good to maintain the feel good hormone by being active physically and mentally as well.
Last but not least, one should know that delaying an IVF will only lower the success rate. If one has been given the option to do an IVF, then it is best to do it as soon as possible, especially women above the age of 35 and men above the age of 45. On top of that, the older one gets, there is a higher chance of having ovarian damage through ovarian cysts or endometriosis. So, one better act as soon as possible after a decision has been made.
The IVF procedure has evolved greatly since its introduction in the late 1970s. Now they are able to separate genetic defects during the 3 to 5 days window between oocyte fertilization and embryo transfer to prevent unhealthy embryo. At the end of the day, it is always good to keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle will increase the pregnancy rate, and though IVF is not 100% successful, but the success of having a baby ultimately lies in healthy parents.
