IN VITRO FERTILIZATION

What is In Vitro Fertilization?


In Vitro Fertilization is the most preferred assisted reproductive technique. The number of fertilized ovules and developing embryos is increased in order to increase the chances of pregnancy. For this purpose, ovaries are stimulated with medicine to increase the number of ovule.


How is In Vitro Fertilization done?

Contrary to previous approaches, newly developed medicines start to stimulate the development of ovules on the 3rd day of menstruation without the need for suppression of ovarian hormones in women. This drug treatment lasts about 10 days. The development of the ovules is tracked by ultrasonography. When the ovules reach the desired size, the ovules are broken by injection (hCG - human chorionic gonadotropin).


36 hours after this procedure, the ovules are collected in a sterile tube with an OPU (oocyte pick up) needle added to the ultrasound probe. Then these ovules are put in the culture fluid in which they can continue to develop. Ovule collection takes about 20 minutes.
