In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In vitro fertilization, which is one of the auxiliary reproductive methods in modern medicine, can be defined as fertilization of male and female reproductive cells in extra-body conditions and transferring the resulting embryos or embryos to the female uterus.

Who is Eligible for IVF?

  • In women whose uterine canals (tubes) are blocked
  • In case of sperm count, movement or low normal sperm ratio
  • In patients who cannot be concluded with the vaccination method
  • In cases of unexplained infertility
  • Women with common adhesions in the abdomen due to endometriosis and who cannot obtain pregnancy with treatment
  • In some hormonal disorders
  • In cases where pregnancy cannot be achieved with other treatment methods
  • In order to obtain a healthy baby by diagnosing some hereditary diseases at the embryo stage (together with genetic diagnosis methods before clinging)
  • In order to select healthy embryos by genetic diagnosis method in women with recurrent miscarriages

Stages of IVF Treatment

  • From the moment the patient decides to start treatment, the use of the contraceptive pill is started on the first menstrual day. The purpose of the contraceptive pill is to regulate the patient's menstrual period and eliminate the chance of developing any ovarian cyst until the next menstrual period when he or she will start treatment.
  • During the next menstrual period, hormone-containing drugs are taken, and the ovaries are stimulated. The drugs taken are to increase the likelihood of pregnancy by helping multiple egg cells to develop.
  • The growth of stimulated eggs is monitored by ultrasound.
  • The stimulation needle is applied close to the size of the stimulated eggs.
  • About 36 hours after the cracking needle is performed, the eggs are collected in the IVF centre.
  • On the day the eggs are collected, a sperm sample is taken from the male.
  • The resulting egg cells are fertilized using classical IVF or microinjection method, according to laboratory conditions and sperm cell quality. Thanks to this fertilization, the embryo, which is the cornerstone of the baby developing in the womb, is formed. In the microinjection method, sperm is entered directly into the egg and the success rate increases in cases where sperm quality is low.
  •  Fertilization detected under a microscope occurs in a period of approximately 12 to 15 hours. Embryo transfer is carried out within 2 to 4 days.
  • There is a waiting period for the embryo to hold on for 12 days after transfer.
  • On the 12th day of the transfer, the result is learned by performing a pregnancy test.
