Treatment process

Course of IVF

IVF involves joining a woman’s egg and man’s sperm outside the woman’s body. For couples who fail to conceive using their own germ cells, donated eggs and sperm from suitable anonymous donors will be used for IVF.

STEP 2

Assessment of the couple’s reproductive capacity

In order to determine appropriate treatment, both partners must undergo fertility tests. The causes of infertility can occur in both men and women.

Examination of male fertility image

Examination of male fertility

The primary examination for men is a semen analysis (spermiogram), which is the basic means to determine the level of male fertility.

STEP 5

Stimulation

The course of stimulation varies depending on the chosen method of treatment. In IVF using the patient’s own eggs, the goal is to stimulate the growth of follicles from which the eggs are subsequently retrieved. In case of IVF using donated eggs or cryopreserved embryos, medication is used to increase the thickness of the endometrium and its receptivity to the embryo.

Retrieval of eggs and sperm image
STEP 6

Retrieval of eggs and sperm

Depending on the chosen method of treatment, the patient or donor's eggs are retrieved. Eggs are retrieved under monitored, short anaesthesia, which usually lasts no more than ten minutes. At the same time, the patient’s partner provides his ejaculate in the sampling room at the clinic. In case of donated sperm, we will use frozen sperm from our sperm bank.

STEP 7

In vitro fertilisation

Mature eggs are fertilised with the partner’s best quality selected sperm, usually by injection directly into the egg (ICSI).

Embryo culture image
STEP 8

Embryo culture

The purpose of the complex process of assessing embryo quality is to determine the optimal time for embryo transfer to ensure the highest chance of pregnancy.

STEP 9

Embryo transfer

The transfer of the embryo into the endometrium is performed without anaesthesia using a thin flexible catheter, the end of which is guided by ultrasound for precise placement of the embryo.

Positive pregnancy test

You should avoid strenuous physical activity and stress after embryo transfer. Successful IVF culminates with a positive pregnancy blood test on the 14th day after transfer.
