The babies born through an IVF treatment are often called "test-tube babies." This treatment is used to assist infertile couples in conceiving. So, the term "test-tube baby" simplifies a child born through IVF. Therefore, there is no differentiation between an IVF baby and a test-tube baby.

Why and When is Test Tube Baby Treatment Needed?
Couples who have difficulties conceiving due to male infertility or unexplained infertility may opt for a test tube baby or IVF treatment.
Some of the other reasons behind the need for test tube baby treatment:
- Woman after 38 years suffers the problem of low ovarian reserve that can be solved through test tube baby treatment.
- Failure in previous IUI cycles.
- Use of donor sperm in males who don't have any sperm in their semen.
- Women who need to use donor eggs or go through surrogacy treatment.
Now, let's discuss,
The Actual Process of Test Tube Baby Treatment
Step 1: Egg production stimulated by hormonal therapy
The woman is given injectable GnRHa and gonadotrophin hormones before egg extraction to enhance the synchronized growth and maturity of the follicles inside her ovaries. The complete development of the eggs is done 36 hours before egg extraction by injecting HCG.
Step 2: Egg retrieval from ovaries
The fertility specialist administers mild sedative or anaesthesia to ensure that the woman does not feel any pain or discomfort throughout the egg retrieval procedure. The fertility specialist collects eggs from the woman's ovaries using a vaginal ultrasound probe with a fine hollow needle attached. These samples are delivered to the lab as soon as possible.
Step 3: Collection of the sperm sample
The man must provide a fresh semen sample on the same day of the egg retrieval.
Step 4: Combining eggs and sperms for fertilization
In a petri dish, the sperm and eggs are combined and placed in an incubator for a few days. The fertility doctor will examine the eggs for evidence of fertilization. Then, they will monitor the fertilized eggs' (embryos') progress during this time.
Step 5: Insertion of fertilized eggs into the uterine cavity
IVF doctor advises the woman to take progesterone or HCG regularly to strengthen and nourish the uterine lining and boost the chances of implantation. Two or three embryos are placed into the woman's uterus using a thin catheter on the day of embryo transfer.
Step 6: Pregnancy test
The would-be mother should perform a home pregnancy test two weeks after the embryo transfer and report the results to their IVF doctor. The results of the test will determine the future course of IVF treatment.
What is the success rate of the test-tube baby / IVF treatment?
In young women, the average test tube baby or IVF treatment success rate is around 40% worldwide. Women below 35 years have a higher chance of success than older women.
The success rate of this most widely used assisted reproductive technology is usually calculated based on the number of live births every embryo transfer.
What are the risks involved in test tube baby treatment?
Not all pregnancies result in a baby for individuals who become pregnant through IVF:
- A little more than a quarter of all IVF cycles result in a live birth.
- Another downside of IVF is that it requires an operative procedure, which involves infection, anaesthesia, and bleeding risks.
What is the difference between IVF and test tube baby treatment?
The term "test-tube baby" is a non-medical term for IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) that was popular decades ago. The term "test-tube baby" came about due to the widespread belief that an embryo is created in a test tube instead of a woman's fallopian tube.
The egg and sperm are fertilized in a petri dish. Hence the term in-vitro refers to the process of fertilization within a glass culture dish instead of in-vivo, which relates to fertilization within a living body.
Therefore, there is no difference between an IVF and a test tube baby treatment. It is important to understand that whether the baby is referred to as a test tube baby or an IVF baby, he or she is human and as natural as any other baby in every way.
