What Is IVF and How Does It Work?
IVF is one of many micromanipulation methods used to aid fertility. Micromanipulation methods are specialized techniques used in fertility treatment to improve the chances of conception. These methods involve manipulating individual sperm or embryos under a microscope in the laboratory.
IVF stands for In vitro fertilization, which is one of many types of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) or infertility treatment, used to help couples who are struggling to conceive naturally. IVF involves combining eggs and sperm outside the body in a laboratory dish and then transferring the resulting embryo(s) back into the uterus.
Here’s how the IVF process typically works:
Ovarian Stimulation: The woman is given medication to stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs instead of the usual one egg per menstrual cycle. This is otherwise known as ovulation induction.
Egg Collection: Once the ovaries produce their own eggs, rather than being passed through the fallopian tubes, they are retrieved from the woman’s ovaries using a needle guided by ultrasound.
Fertilization: The eggs are mixed with sperm in a laboratory dish and left to fertilize. This is also known as assisted hatching.
Embryo Development: After fertilization, the fertilised egg or embryos are cultured in the laboratory for a few days until they are ready to be transferred.
Embryo Transfer: The embryo(s) are transferred into the woman’s uterus using a thin tube called a catheter, typically two to five days after fertilization.
Pregnancy Test: The woman will have blood tests or a urine test to check if she has become pregnant about two weeks after the embryo transfer.
IVF can be used to overcome various fertility issues, including premature ovarian failure, fallopian tube damage, ovulation disorders, endometriosis, male factor infertility, and unexplained infertility. However, IVF success rates are not guaranteed, and multiple cycles may be needed to achieve a successful pregnancy. When successful, this procedure can have amazing results.
The entire process is a highly professional service that must be delivered by experienced and highly trained & English-speaking physicians.
In Western countries, access to this type of treatment is mainly only available in expensive private hospitals, and treatments are inaccessible to many patients. There is no access to IVF treatment at affordable prices, and waiting lists can pose a risk to the possibility of high pregnancy rates. The success rate of IVF is varied, and unlike regular fertilisation which carries low multiple birth risks, in vitro fertilisation comes with a higher risk of multiple pregnancies, which in turn heightens the risk of potential issues with the birth of the baby.
Other Forms of IVF Treatment in Turkey – Intrauterine Insemination
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is another type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that can be used to help couples conceive, offered by many clinics in Turkey. Unlike IVF, which involves fertilizing the eggs outside the body, IUI involves placing sperm directly into the uterus.
Here’s how the IUI process typically works:
Ovarian Stimulation: The woman is given medication to stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs.
Monitoring: The woman’s ovaries are monitored using ultrasound and/or blood tests to determine when the eggs are mature and ready to be released.
Insemination: The man provides a semen sample, which is washed and prepared in the laboratory to concentrate the sperm. The prepared sperm is then placed directly into the woman’s uterus using a thin catheter.
Pregnancy Test: The woman will have a blood test or urine test to check if she has become pregnant about two weeks after the insemination.
IUI can be used to treat a variety of fertility issues, including mild male factor infertility, ovulation disorders, and unexplained infertility. It may also be used in cases where the man has difficulty with ejaculation, or where the couple is using donor sperm. However, success rates for IUI are generally lower than those for IVF, and multiple cycles may be needed to achieve a successful pregnancy.

A vasectomy is a surgical procedure for men that involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, which are the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. By blocking or cutting the vas deferens, sperm is prevented from reaching semen, which means that a man who has had a vasectomy is no longer able to father children through sexual intercourse. Vasectomy is considered a permanent form of contraception and is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
The procedure is usually pain-free and performed under general anesthesia. Recovery time is usually short, and most men can return to normal activities within a few days. While vasectomy can be reversed in some cases, it is important for men to consider the procedure to be permanent and irreversible. Blood tests might be carried out when booking appointments for your treatments as a precaution before a procedure is performed, to gain an indication of the patient’s general health.
