1) What are the factors influencing the success in IVF?

The most important factor is age. The older the female is, the less the chance of getting pregnant. There is practically very little chance of pregnancy for females who are older than 44 years old. The chance of pregnancy is negatively affected by the previously experienced sexually infected diseases and infections influencing the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

Quality of sperms, adhesiveness of the embryos within the womb, problems such as myoma or polyp, blocked fallopian tubes are kinds of factors that influence the success of IVF.

2) What is the age limit for applying IVF?

IVF can be applied till the age of 44. However, it is known that there is less chance for a successful IVF after the age of 44.

3) What is microinjection?

It is a method of IVF that enables the fertilization through injecting a single sperm into the egg.

4) What is IVF?

Unlike the microinjection, certain number of sperms is put around the eggs and one of the sperm enters into the egg naturally.

5) What is the difference of microinjection from the IVF?

Microinjection is used in male infertility whereas IVF is used in female infertility.

6) Who is IVF or microinjection applicable for? How is it applied?

These methods are used in such situations as when no pregnancy occurs and standard treatment methods are ineffective.

7) Which phases do IVF consist of?

It consists of stimulation of the ovaries, collection of the eggs, fertilization of the eggs with sperm, and transfer of fertilized eggs (embryos).

8) What is done in cases where the number of sperm is few or none?

If the number of sperm is very few, microinjection is performed. In cases where there is no sper, it is required to surgically search for the sperm inside the testicles.

9) How are the eggs collected? Is it a painful process?

Eggs are collected with the help of vaginal ultrasound. It is a process that is generally performed under short-term anesthesia.

10) How does a person feel following egg collection?

She can go home straight away and she can even go to work in the afternoon of the same day of egg collection.

11) Does ovary reserve run out as a result of these treatments?

Stimulation of the ovaries with the purpose of IVF doesn’t decrease the ovary reserve.

12) Is every single egg fertilized?

For an egg to be fertilized, it should be mature and structurally normal. All the eggs are not appropriate for fertilization. Each fertilized egg doesn’t turn into a healthy embryo either.

13) How are embryos placed into the womb?

Embryo transfer is a simple process. An embryo is placed from the cervical field into the womb by using a thin plastic catheter with the help of ultrasound.

14) Are there any embryos left after the transfer procedure? If so, what happens to them?

The remaining embryos are re-evaluated by the embryologist and if there are embryos with sufficient quality, couples are advised for the cryopreservation.

15)How is embryo selection carried out?

Only fully developed healthy embryos are selected. 1-3 embryos are placed into the womb depending on the age of the female.

16) What can be done in case of multiple pregnancy?

First of all, it is necessary to prevent the multiple pregnancies. This is possible by lessening the number of embryos transferred, for women with higher chances of pregnancy (young, previously pregnant). Generally, no attempt is made in twin pregnancies. As for the triplet pregnancies, pregnancy reduction is recommended.

17) Does the process of embryo reduction have a risk, does it influence the progress of the pregnancy?

The probability of losing the other embryos is 5% .In twins reduced from triples, rates of premature birth and miscarriage are higher when compared with normal twin pregnancies.

18) Should one take a rest after the transferal?

We suggest you to continue your normal life because there is no specific benefit of having rest.

19) When does the result of the pregnancy become clear?

Following the transfer, on the 11th day, with the blood test called Beta-HCG, it can be seen whether the pregnancy has occurred or not. Following the embryo transfer, our nurses inform you about the date of the test.

19) How are the results of pregnancy acquired with the frozen embryos?

These rates change from one centre to the other. We have a very successful embryo freezing program with the vitrification technique in Rajni Fertiliy Centre.
