In vitro fertilization (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is the method with the highest pregnancy rate in fertility treatment.

According to 2018 data, 1 in 16 people are born by in vitro fertilization, and it is said that the number is increasing year by year. But what is IVF treatment?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a procedure that involves piercing the vagina to obtain an egg. It then fertilizes the egg and sperm outside of the body.

What is IVF treatment?

Finally, the fertilized egg is returned back to the uterus, when it is easier to become pregnant. The reason why the pregnancy rate is high is that you can shortcut the way to fertilization.

In vitro fertilization is intended for those who are considered difficult to fertilize in the body.

Fallopian tube infertility, fertility disorder, male infertility, and when pregnancy is not established due to natural sexual intercourse or artificial infertility, etc.

Unexplained infertility, old age, endometriosis, severe ovulation disorder, polycystic ovary (PCO), etc. are examples of this indication.

Treatment method

1. Induction of ovulation (from the 3rd to the 10th day of the start of menstruation). 2. LH surge induction (9th to 13th day after the start of menstruation). 3. Egg collection

4. Fertilization (on the day of egg collection) 5. Culture (1 to 6 days after egg collection) 6. Embryo transfer (2-5 days after egg collection)

7. Pregnancy judgment (about 2 weeks after egg collection)

There are the necessary method and steps in a successful IVF treatment.

Success rate

The average number of embryo transfers for successful in vitro fertilization at our hospital is 1.9. The younger you are, the sooner you tend to get pregnant.

For women up to 34 years of age, 80% will be pregnant by the third embryo transfer. If you are 35 to 39 years old, 75% will be pregnant by the 4th embryo transfer.

It is expected that multiple embryo transfers will be performed until pregnancy after the age of 40.

This is because the pregnancy rate of females decreases with age and the treatment is prolonged.

IVF treatment cost

An In vitro Fertilization (IVF) Cycle can cost more than $12,000. Basic IVF can cost up to $15,000 or as low as $10,000.
