We provide professional support in IVF.
In vitro fertilization is a treatment method that
increases the probability of getting pregnant in couples who have little or no
possibility of a normal pregnancy. In vitro fertilization occurs when the
reproductive cells of men and women are fertilized in extracorporeal
In vitro fertilization was performed for the first time in the world in
1978 in England. In our country, the first IVF was delivered by Ege
University in 1989. Today, many couples who have problems with conceiving
resort to this method. The basis of IVF application, together with the
steps taken in 1971, constitutes the technique of today’s IVF treatment
In vitro fertilization treatment techniques have developed continuously
with technology and have affected the lives of many couples with new methods. All
the improvements were implemented based on the negative factors in order to
increase the success rate of IVF.
Microtese (testicular biopsy performed under a microscope)
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
Assisted Hatching (thinning of the embryo wall with Lazarus)
Frozen (Frozen storage of embryos, sperm and eggs for later use)
Embryoscope (A technique that allows the selection of healthy ones by
following the embryo development under the camera)
If the couples have been exposed to negative consequences during the
pregnancy process, they are rested first. The events that can be
considered as factors such as previous treatments, pregnancy and miscarriage
are learned. If available, your previous examination results and analyzes
Any surgery report or notes taken thereon,
Couples blood tests
Reports of previous treatment, if any
Reports on other diseases, if any
All these data obtained, an IVF treatment plan is created and clarified on
the day of the application.
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization): It is the process of artificial
fertilization of an egg taken from the ovaries by the sperm outside the body. IVF
is a different treatment method preferred in the treatment of infertility due
to the failure of other applications.
GIFT (Gamet Intrafallopian Transfer): The egg taken from the female
ovaries and the sperm taken from the male are injected into the fallopian tube
of the woman. Fertilization is expected here after the procedure. This
method is not among the most preferred treatment applications today.
ZIFT (Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer): ZIFT, another assisted reproductive
technique, is similar to IVF and GIFT. However, in this application
procedure, unlike the GIFT application, the fertilized embryo is used and is placed
in the tubes, not in the uterus as in the IVF process.
ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Serm Injection): It is the process of placing the
sperm taken from the man into the egg cell taken from the expectant mother
under the microscope through very small catheters. Fertilization, which
does not occur by natural methods, is created in a laboratory environment. This
method is preferred in individuals with significant problems in sperm count and
IVM (In-Vitro Maturation): It is the process of collecting immature eggs
and maturing them in the laboratory after a short period of drug use or without
the use of drugs. Eggs matured with the specified application are
fertilized in a laboratory environment and embryos are obtained. These
embryos are placed in the uterus.
The most effective ways to achieve success in IVF treatment processes are
higher in a successful team and quality laboratory environment. The most
critical point affecting the success of IVF is the factors that cause
infertility. While the success rate of IVF is 15% lower in patients with
reduced ovarian production, individuals who are applied due to ovulation
problems have a 38% higher chance of success.
Steps Applied in IVF Treatment
Initial examination and couple assessment
Stimulating the ovaries and creating eggs
IVF or microinjection (ICSI) application
Failures may occur at some stages in the treatment
process. Generally, the reasons for the failure are unknown.
Among the Primary Causes; Poor quality of the
embryo, mistakes in drug treatment, keeping the embryo in the wrong environment
and thickening of the embryo membrane prevent the formation of IVF.
Among the Secondary Causes; Problems arising from
the mother’s body, namely; Many uterine causes such as defects in the
intrauterine wall, polyps and fibroids, immune system disorders,
infection-induced adhesions, coagulation disorders can cause negative results
of IVF treatment.
Among Tertiary Causes; Problems encountered in tubes
and chocolate cysts can affect the failure of IVF treatment. Adhesion of
the fallopian tubes due to infections or damage to the tubes in previous
surgical operations is a problem. The obstruction of the specified tubes,
the accumulation of fluid in them and the flow of the accumulated fluid to the
ovaries make it difficult for the embryo to adhere in the uterus. For this
reason, negative results may be encountered during the IVF treatment process.
The Man’s Factor in Failure
How to Identify Unsuccessful Treatment?
IVF Success Rate
The Man’s Factor in Failure
In IVF treatments, we see that problems generally arise
from women. But the only factor of failure is not the mother-to-be, but
the fathers. In particular, the low quality of male sperm and the low
number of sperm require the use of existing sperm. Since the sperm of the
father-to-be needs to be used, the insufficient quality of the male sperm or
the small number of them can cause problems. Embryos formed with eggs
fertilized with sperm whose genetic materials are not of good quality do not
reach the expected quality.
When the embryo quality is not sufficient, failure
usually occurs due to the inability to attach to the uterus. In other
words, the reproductive cells that will come from the male must be both
abundant and high quality.
