In vitro, derived from Latin, literally translates to “inside the glass.” It is a technique where fertilization takes place outside the body. This procedure includes ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, and laboratory fertilization with a sperm sample. Once the in vitro fertilization is completed, we will carefully place the embryo (fertilized egg) back into the uterus.
We continuously strive to provide the best possible outcome for our patients by utilizing state of the art technology and techniques. With our unwavering commitment to innovation, we are dedicated to helping you achieve your dreams of parenthood.
In vitro fertilization stands as one of the most successful methods of assisted reproduction, offering promising results. In women under the age of 35, the probability of achieving conception through this procedure is approximately 29%.
For around 25% of couples who are having problems conceiving, the cause of infertility is sperm-related. ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is the most common and successful treatment for male infertility. This advanced technique involves directly injecting high-quality sperm into the egg, performed when the sperm lacks sufficient strength or when the male has low sperm count.
ROPA (reception of oocytes from partner) is an innovative IVF technique that enables couples consisting of two women to actively participate in the process. One partner becomes the genetic mother by providing the egg, while the other partner becomes the biological mother by carrying the pregnancy. It’s a remarkable way for couples to share the journey of creating their family.
If desired, we can conduct a biopsy on all embryos prior to the procedure to assess their genetic viability. While this incurs an additional cost, it significantly enhances the chances of success.
We respect the uniqueness of each couple and assess every case individually. While customizing our approach, we provide a step-by-step itinerary for in vitro fertilization. Our team accompanies you throughout the entire process, ensuring support and guidance at every stage.
Start the process by scheduling a consultation with one of our experienced physicians. During this session, we will thoroughly review your medical history, conduct an ultrasound examination, and order blood tests to assess your fertility hormones. Based on the results, we will design a personalized plan with clear and specific steps to follow.
The stimulation process involves a series of hormone injections that you can easily administer at home. These injections will boost your egg production. Throughout the treatment, you will have regular consultations to closely monitor your progress and response to the medications. Once your hormone levels are optimal, one of our specialists will administer an injection to facilitate the continued maturation of your eggs.
Under anesthesia, our skilled specialists will perform the egg retrieval procedure. On the same day, we collect the sperm sample, and our expert embryologists take charge of fertilizing the eggs, nurturing them in an incubator for a period of 3 to 5 days. You can choose to do genetic studies before the transfer if you wish.
We meticulously assess each embryo’s quality and select the one with the highest potential. This chosen embryo is then placed back into your uterus. This process requires only a few minutes and generally does not require anesthesia. Any remaining embryos can be frozen for future use, offering you flexibility and peace of mind.
Ten days after the embryo transfer, we conduct a pregnancy test using a blood sample to determine if fetal development has begun. Throughout this journey, our dedicated specialists will provide unwavering support and guidance, accompanying you every step of the way.
The stimulation process consists of a series of hormone injections that you do at home and increases your egg production. You will constantly come in for a consultation to monitor the treatment and your response to the medications. When your hormones are at the optimal level, one of our specialists will give you an injection so that the eggs continue their maturation process.
We will apply anesthesia so that one of our specialists can retrieve your eggs. Generally, that same day we capture the sperm, our embryologists are in charge of fertilizing and leaving it in an incubator for 3 to 5 days.
After genetic studies to check compatibility, we analyze each of the embryos, identify the one with the best quality, and return it to your uterus’s natural environment. For this, anesthesia is unnecessary, just a few minutes of discomfort. We can freeze the embryos that we do not use so that you can use them in the future!
After 10 days of having transferred the embryo to your uterus, we do a pregnancy test with a blood sample to identify if a fetus is forming. Our specialists will accompany you every step of the way.
Begin your journey by scheduling a consultation with one of our fertility doctors where we will determine the best course of action for your fertility treatment.
In vitro fertilization cycle involves egg retrieval and laboratory fertilization of retrieved eggs with semen sample, followed by embryo transfer to the woman’s uterus.
