What is IVF process?
It starts with taking hormonal medicines for some months to produce quality eggs. Once produced, you need to visit a fertility center to get your tests done by the doctor. Then the doctor will insert a needle through your vagina and take out your eggs from the follicles. It will be stored in lab along with your partner’s sperm or any donor. After it meets and fertilizes, its progress will be monitored for some days. After this, you’ll be called again to get the eggs inserted. Most likely one of the embryo will get attached to your uterus living and start its development. You may be asked to take hormonal pills for progestone that will increase the chances.

Bloating, cramps, bleeding, infection, mood swings, headache etc. You may not be able to work on the day in which eggs are implanted but can start your work a day after.
