IVF abroad

IVF abroadAccording to WHO, every fifth couple faces the problem of infertility.

An effective solution for those who aspire to become parents, but do not have such an opportunity, has become in vitro fertilization (IVF). This is an assisted reproductive technology, which is based on the artificial insemination of the egg in the laboratory.

Many couples from countries of Central Asia and Eastern Europe, after many years of unsuccessful infertility treatment in their countries, choose IVF abroad. According to the reviews of patients after IVF abroad, they managed to achieve pregnancy on the first attempt.

 

The success rate of IVF abroad

IVF has a long history abroad – more than 40 years. During this time, about 8 million children were born. According to statistics, the average success rate of IVF abroad is 55-65%, and in some cases, it reaches and even exceeds 80%.

Among the leading countries where IVF procedures are successfully performed are Turkey, Israel, Spain, Germany, and South Korea. The effectiveness of infertility treatment in Turkey is about 87%, in Germany – 86-87%, and in Israel – 89-92%.

For a successful pregnancy, several IVF attempts are sometimes necessary. Thanks to the achievements of foreign medicine, specialists manage to achieve successful results in most patients for the first time.

 

Benefits of IVF Abroad

The main advantage of artificial insemination is the possibility of pregnancy with complete infertility, followed by the birth of a healthy child.

High rates of infertility treatment abroad are due to the following factors:

  1. Skills, knowledge, and experience of doctors, many of whom are world experts in the field of reproduction.
  2. Availability of advanced technologies and laboratories for 100% accurate diagnosis and procedure.
  3. The possibility of carrying out procedures using assisted reproductive technologies and additional services. For example, cryopreservation of embryos, genetic diagnostics, and assisted hatching.
  4. Availability of egg and sperm donor banks.
  5. Affordable cost. Many clinics have developed special programs of the “all-inclusive” type.
  6. Medical centers are accredited according to JCI standards, which guarantee a high level of medical services.
  7. Most clinics are located in ecologically clean resort areas, which allows to combine an ECO tour abroad with a vacation.

Particular attention should be paid to follow-up after IVF abroad. Pregnancy should be managed by an experienced obstetrician-gynecologist who specializes in the management of pregnancies after IVF.

 

Indications for IVF abroad

IVF indications abroadThe absence of pregnancy in 35% of cases is associated with female infertility, in 25% with male infertility, in 30% with infertility of both spouses. Doctors talk about infertility in the absence of pregnancy for at least 12 months with regular sexual activity.

It is recommended to seek medical help in the absence of pregnancy:

  • if the woman is under 35 years old – for at least one year;
  • from 35 years – after 6 months;
  • older than 40 years – immediately after an unsuccessful conception.

The IVF procedure abroad is used when conservative therapy has not led to pregnancy.

Artificial insemination is shown as the only chance to get rid of infertility in pathologies when natural insemination is impossible:

  • in severe endometriosis;
  • due to obstruction or absence of fallopian tubes;
  • with low sperm quality: low mobility, morphological abnormalities, low concentration of normal spermatozoa in the ejaculate;
  • at high risks of genetic abnormalities: during IVF by the ICSI method, genetic analysis of the embryo is available;
  • in the presence of antibodies to spermatozoa;
  • with unexplained fertility problems – 15% of cases.

Infertility treatment abroad involves a thorough examination of the couple and the preparation of an individual therapy regimen. It includes artificial insemination using advanced techniques.

Also, IVF abroad is resorted to:

  • single women who want to have a child out of wedlock (using donor sperm);
  • single men who have a desire to become a father (under the program of surrogate motherhood).

 

Contraindications for IVF abroad

The procedure of artificial insemination cannot be carried out with a number of pathologies:

  • in oncological diseases of any organs;
  • due to acquired deformities of the body of the uterus;
  • due to congenital malformations of the uterus;
  • with benign formations of the ovaries and uterus;
  • with severe mental disorders.

Relative contraindications include an acute inflammatory process of any localization in the body. In this case, preliminary therapy is carried out using sparing modern drugs.

 

How IVF is carried out abroad?

How IVF is carried out abroadIt should be understood that IVF abroad is not a procedure but a whole range of medical measures aimed at achieving a healthy physiological pregnancy. In-vitro insemination is the basic IVF procedure abroad. On average, the cycle usually takes 15-25 days. It consists of the main stages:

  1. Taking hormonal drugs for 8-12 days to improve ovarian function. Doctors monitor hormone levels and the production of mature eggs using ultrasound and blood tests.
  2. Egg retrieval. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, in which a gynecologist removes a woman’s eggs. It is performed under ultrasound guidance and under local anesthesia.
  3. Insemination. In the laboratory, the obtained eggs are combined with spermatozoa. Specialists carefully monitor the formation of embryos in fertilized eggs.
  4. Transfer of one or more embryos to the uterus after 3-5 days. The procedure is painless.

Implantation of multiple embryos can lead to multiple pregnancies. Unused embryos are frozen. In the future, they can be used for a second attempt or given to a donor bank.

Pregnancy occurs if at least one of the embryos manages to successfully attach to the uterine mucosa. After 2 weeks, the woman takes a pregnancy test.

 

Advanced IVF Technologies

To increase the chances of pregnancy, doctors may use additional reproductive techniques:

  1. ICSI. With the immobility of spermatozoa, the doctor introduces them into the egg using microsurgical instruments. This technology is used in 70% of cases. The ICSI method fertilizes up to 80% of the eggs, while with conventional IVF – 50%.
  2. IMSI. In case of violation of the formation of spermatozoa, doctors select the strongest and most mobile spermatozoa using a microscope with 6,000 magnifications.
  3. TESA. In the absence or low concentration of spermatozoa, a preliminary testicular puncture is performed.
  4. Auxiliary hatching. Destruction of the shell around the embryo to facilitate its transfer to the uterus.

In case of an unsuccessful attempt, doctors give the woman time to rest and repeat the procedure after 4-6 months, taking into account the experience of the failed attempt.

 

What are the chances of pregnancy with IVF abroad?

What are the chances of pregnancy with IVF abroadEvery year, about 2 million couples undergo IVF procedures abroad.

The result is the birth of more than 500,000 healthy babies. The success of IVF abroad directly depends on the age, health, and lifestyle of a woman. Women who have given birth before are more likely to become pregnant.

According to the SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology), the average IVF effectiveness depending on age, without taking into account the method of treatment is:

  • women under 35 have the highest chances – 55.6%;
  • patients 35-40 years old – 27-40%;
  • women over 40 years old – 12%.

IVF medical centers abroad have higher rates in all categories. For example, 65% or more first-attempt pregnancies and successful pregnancies in older patients.
