In vitro fertilisation

IVF in Turkey

Turkey is more than just a tourist destination. If you were desperate to have a child filling your home with laughter and happiness and tried fertility drugs such as clomifene or fertility treatment like IUI without success, then IVF might be your answer. IVF which stands for ;In Vitro Fertilizations; involves combining eggs and sperms outside the body in a laboratory on a culture dish “in vitro” instead of within the body “in vivo”, next the fertilised egg called an embryo is surgically implanted in the woman’s womb.

Louise Brown, born in England in 1978, was the first such baby to be conceived outside her mother, since then millions have been born using this technique, in 2009, nearly two per cent of all the babies born in the UK were conceived as a result of IVF treatment.

Millions of people visit Turkey every year not just for its authentic historical sites or for its bosphorus view or for its amazing culture but also as an international medical destination, where Turkey have become one of the global centers for fertility treatment with doctors having membership of ESHRE, the European Society of Human Reproductive Endocrinology, as well as holding a specialist IVF Turkey certificate from Turkey.

When IVF is recommended

If you have blocked or damaged fallopian tubes or if your partner has a minor problem with his sperm or if you have been trying to conceive for at least two years and a cause has not been found to explain why you have not become pregnant then IVF is usually recommended.

IVF Steps and process

IVF process includes taking fertility drugs and hormone injections this stimulate your ovaries to develop and release mature eggs at a number greater than usual, ultrasound scans and blood tests are conducted to monitor how many and how well the eggs are responding to insure your safety and evaluate the readiness of your eggs, after that your eggs will surgically be removed from your ovaries and the sperm is then combined with the eggs in a dish and left to culture in an incubator, within one day of combining the eggs and sperm, the dish is checked to see if any eggs have been fertilized and you will go back between two days and three days later for the embryos to be transferred to your uterus. Once your pregnancy has been confirmed following IVF, you should have an early ultrasound scan at about six weeks, this is to check that the embryo has implanted in your uterus. IVF treatment could be very expensive worldwide; however, in Turkey the prices are very competitive and IVF  Turkey may cost only half the price it cost in the USA and with good facilities especially if you contact the right medical tourism service provider.

IVF Chance of success

The woman’s age is considered a key factor determining the success of IVF, women under age of 35 has a better chance than women over age of 40. However, recently rates of success have increased among every age group due to the improvement of the techniques and the increase in the doctors experience, if you have been pregnant before your chance of success will be even better.

There might be some emotional issues accompanying the process, it is advised to seek some consultation to prepare yourself and to check some other parents experiences. Many parents still go on to give birth to much-wanted, much-loved babies through IVF, and for most children conceived by IVF there are no long-term problems.

Hope is always there and IVF might be your boat to feel the blessing, love and happiness of holding your beautiful baby in your arms.
