There are some risks that couples who have not been able to have children by natural means get stuck in their heads before starting the IVF method. The fact that the risk of developing cancer is higher, especially in in vitro fertilization children, causes expectant mothers and fathers to have question marks in their heads. In addition to the risk of cancer, some other factors are also among the risks in IVF. Another issue that patients are most concerned about is the risks that arise due to egg collection. During the egg collection phase, which is one of the stages applied in in vitro fertilization method, bleeding or various infections may be observed. This, in turn, can cause question marks to appear in the minds of expectant mothers in particular. So, what are the other risks that are included among the risks in IVF?

Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome: IVF is a treatment method that takes place by stimulating the eggs. Of course, some medications are given to stimulate the eggs in this process in order to support the treatment. The use of these drugs may cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in some patients. These medications can cause excessive stimulation of the eggs from time to time. This syndrome means that the eggs are overstimulated.

Another major part of the risks observed are the risks of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. On the other hand, the risk of leukemia in children who will be born is 60% higher than in children born with a normal pregnancy. In particular, the rate of leukemia risk causes question marks to form in the minds of families.

Miscarriage After IVF

After some of the IVF attempts, miscarriage is observed. This, in turn, can cause the expectant mother to become depressed and more stressed. Fluid deposits that form in a woman, excessive arousal, pain and swelling sensation problems also bring with them some risks and complications. But if you want to get rid of the possibility of miscarriage after IVF and the risks of IVF, you should be careful about choosing the right center and the right physician. In order to keep the probability of miscarriage after IVF at a rate of 1%, we recommend that you definitely take a step down this path with a doctor who has made a name for himself in his field. So what are the causes of miscarriage after IVF application?

The Risk of Ectopic Pregnancy

In the miscarriages observed by in vitro fertilization, it should be investigated first of all why the miscarriage is caused. Thus, in other trials, the risks in IVF are kept to a minimum. Because every failed attempt causes your hope to be broken and your motivation to decrease. Ectopic pregnancy is also a common condition among the risks in in vitro fertilization. The term ectopic pregnancy, used for pregnancies that settle outside the uterus, is a condition that threatens the life of the expectant mother. The risk of ectopic pregnancy, which is a condition observed between 5% and 10% in IVF methods, increases to 10% to 20% in the expectant mother’s subsequent attempts.

Causes of Ectopic Pregnancy

He said that a pregnancy that settles in the area outside the uterus of the expectant mother is called an ectopic pregnancy. This situation can be quite dangerous for the expectant mother. After termination of ectopic pregnancy, there is a risk of ectopic pregnancy again if IVF treatment is tried again. Ectopic pregnancy, which is among the risks in IVF, is one of the issues that makes expectant mothers and couples who are thinking of starting treatment think the most Decently. One of the causes of ectopic pregnancy, also called ectopic pregnancy, is stenosis in the tubes. In other words, the narrowness of the tube may cause pregnancy to occur outside the uterus. Another reason is the transfer technique. Therefore, the application of the correct transfer technique and the physician and center that apply the technique are doing a great job. If you have an in vitro fertilization experiment that consists of an ectopic pregnancy, we recommend that you work with a more specialized and successful doctor and center for the next trial. Of course, ectopic pregnancies caused not only by the center and the doctor, but also by the mother herself are observed. In order to minimize the risk of ectopic pregnancy in IVF method in Turkey and the risks in IVF, you can try the methods of connecting or removing the tubes before IVF treatment in Turkey.
