IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)

Tube baby (IVF) method is an assisted reproductive technique that has been used for a long time and is applied to couples who cannot have children. Today, “IVF” is one of the most preferred infertility treatments.

In cases of unexplained infertility, infection, obstruction in the tubes, poor sperm quality of the male, weight or advanced age, couples can have a baby with the IVF method.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)

Tube baby treatment is to achieve fertilization by collecting the eggs, which are female reproductive cells, and sperms, which are male reproductive cells, at the stage where they are most susceptible to the formation of a quality embryo and in a laboratory environment. Maternal age and ovarian reserve status, disease history or cause of infertility, previous birth and lifestyle are among the factors that affect the success in IVF method. The treatment started on the 2nd or 3rd day of the woman’s menstrual cycle ends approximately 16 – 17 days later, and a pregnancy test is performed 10-12 days after embryo transfer.

The fertilized eggs begin to divide and undergo the first stages of development, called embryos, in the laboratory, and the transfer to the uterus of the expectant mother is also provided at a medically appropriate stage.

The number of embryos to be transferred is selected according to the quality and period of the developing embryos, taking into account the age of the woman and previous unsuccessful tube baby attempts. The pregnancy after this is no different from naturally occurring pregnancies.

 

Today, patient-friendly treatments are applied in tube baby treatment. In the long term, treatments that do not harm the health of the woman or her baby are applied.

In the treatment process, the woman does not have to experience any restrictions other than a special diet or the warnings of her doctor, but it is very important that she feels comfortable and psychologically peaceful.

During this period, both the tube baby team and their family and relatives should be sensitive to this situation.

In some cases, vaccination treatment may be preferred before tube baby treatment, especially in male infertility. Sperm collected in this method are transferred into the uterus.
