In Vitro Fertilization, commonly referred to as IVF, is a procedure in which extracted eggs from the woman’s ovaries fertilised with sperm samples in a laboratory. If the eggs fertilized, one or two healthy embryos (fertilised eggs) are are transferred into the woman’s uterus. After that if an embryo implants itself in the uterine wall, the woman becomes pregnant. Remaining healthy embryos can be frozen for storage.
My Health Turkey has decades of experience and knowledge in the health sector and has been involved and connected with the Turkey’s and Northern Cyprus’s leading hospitals and IVF centers. In order to guarantee that our patients get reliable and effective medical care we are carefully selecting best doctors and top hospitals to be part of our exclusive network. Gynecology doctors in our exclusive network are among the Turkey’s and Northern Cyprus’s most successful providers of IVF treatment.
Egg, sperm and embryo donation and surrogacy are prohibited in Turkey. It means IVF treatment can be performed only by using own eggs and sperm. Couples must be married. PGD and PGS are allowed but sex selection is not allowed by law. That’s why we are cooperating with Northern Cyprus clinics in order to create alternatives for our international patients. In Northern Cyprus egg donation, sperm donation and embryo donation surrogacy, gender selection procedures are allowed by law. Also there is no restriction for the number of embryos to be transferred.
Through our network hospitals and IVF clinics we are pleased to provide immediate access to infertility treatment at affordable prices. Patients can rest assured that that we will collaborate and explore all treatment options, providing the best care available.
Couples with both female and male factor infertility may benefit from IVF treatment. IVF increase the chance of pregnancy for woman who are suffering from tubal disease, endometriosis, failure of ovulation, male factor infertility and unexplained infertility.
IVF may be necessary for infertility issues such as,
Tubal disease; blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
Reduced ovarian function
Polycystic ovary syndrome
Male infertility; reduced sperm count or abnormalities in sperm
IVF consists of five steps for completion of one IVF cycle.
STEP 1: Overian stimulation:
In a normal menstrual cycle, women ovulate one egg. With the use of various medications to stimulate multiple eggs in the ovaries amount of follicles can be increased. When the eggs reach the proper size, patient receives a hCG injection Eggs are retrieved after 36 hours.
STEP 2: Egg retrieval
When the follicles are determined mature the patient’s eggs are retrieved under anesthesia by using ultrasound guidance, and sent to the laboratory for fertilization. The egg retrieval process (Transvaginal Aspiration) usually takes 30 minutes and the patient is able to go home after a few hours later.
STEP 3: Insemination (Fertilization)
The fertilization process involves placing healthy sperms with each egg and left to incubate overnight. In some cases when achieving fertilization is difficult, a single sperm is injected into each egg. This process is called ICSI (injecting the sperm into the egg). Fertilization occurs after 16 hours.
STEP 4: Embryo culture
2 days after fertilization,eggs become 2 to 4 cell embryos. 5 days after fertilization the embryos are developed and become blastocysts. After that blastocysts and emryos are graded according to the number of cells, symmetry of growth and degree of fragmentation. If needed PGD/PGS can be performed to blastocysts.
STEP 5: Embryo Transfer
Generally 5-6 days after after fertilization, embryos are placed into the most favorable part of the uterus. The number of embryos transferred depends on the patient’s health status, age and the embryo quality. Remaining embryos can be frozen and stored for future cycles by cryopreservation. After two weeks blood pregnancy test is performed.
We are cooperating with IVF clinics in Northern Cyprus to offer our patients Egg, sperm, and embryo donation. When women are unable to produce healthy eggs for pregnancy they can benefit from the egg donation program of our associate IVF clinics in Northern Cyprus. Egg donors are within the age range of 20 to 28 years old and they undergo a medical screening process to ensure that they are good candidates for the procedure. You need olnly few a weeks for preparation fort he treatment and synchronisation with suitable donor.
Sperm donation is legal in Northern Cyprus. In case of your partner has low sperm count or poor sperm quality or has a genetic disorder that may pass on to your baby donor sperm may help you to get pregnant. Sperm donors are within the age range of 20 and 40 years of age and they undergo a medical screening process to ensure that they are good candidates for the procedure.
When a couple cannot produce healthy egg and sperm for pregnancy they can benefit from the Embryo donation program of our associate IVF clinics in Northern Cyprus. Embryo donation is legal in Northern Cyprus. Embryo Donation treatment uses donor egg and donor sperm. The success rates of getting pregnant with embryo donation is very high due to egg and sperm comes from young and healthy donors.
Gender determination is the procedure in which the gender of the embryo can be determined before the transfer. Gender determination can be done using genetic analysis. The procedure helps the couples to have a child with the gender they want.
If you’d like to have a IVF treatment with donation, our associate clinics in Northern Cyprus have no waiting lists.
