What is it about?

First it is important that you receive a comprehensive evaluation as a couple by fertility experts who are knowledgeable about the causes, solutions, timelines, success rates, and most importantly, take into account your unique circumstances in order to provide an overall diagnosis.

Once the cause has been determined and considering that IVF is the recommended treatment, the following steps are taken during the treatment process.

1. Ovarian Stimulation: Based on our patient’s ovarian reserve, we will initiate ovarian stimulation by administering hormones. This aims to increase the number of eggs for fertilization.

2. Ovarian retrieval: When the doctor determines that there is a number of quality eggs, the process of retrieving them begins. This is an outpatient procedure where, through an ultrasound, the ovary is punctured to extract the eggs, which are then transported to the embryology laboratory.

3. Fertilization: It occurs when the captured eggs combine with previously capacitated sperm and are left in the laboratory to undergo fertilization and embryonic development.

4. Uterine Transfer: This procedure involves transferring the selected, developed embryos into the uterus, allowing the pregnancy to progress within this environment.

What can I expect from an IVF treatment?

Maternal age, infertility causes, duration of pregnancy attempts, and previous treatments are among the factors that impact the success of in vitro fertilization treatment. Trust our expertise to navigate these variables and increase your chances of achieving a successful outcome.
Worldwide estimates suggest that if a woman undergoes this treatment and is under 35 years old, her pregnancy rate will be between 40 and 45%. If she falls between the ages of 35 and 40, the rate drops to 36 to 27%. For women over 40, the rate decreases significantly.

There is a data called “Accumulated Pregnancy Rate,” this probability of achieving a pregnancy can be higher and can reach rates higher than those mentioned above, and it depends on the patients’ consistency in continuing treatment to achieve a pregnancy. There is a worldwide consideration of an accumulated pregnancy rate of up to 90% in patients who undergo 3 or 4 treatments.

FERTILITE is committed to seeking the best pregnancy rate in the fewest number of attempts for its patients, as we have the expertise and infrastructure to offer results superior to those reported worldwide. However, we cannot overlook the fact that each patient has their own challenge, and we do our best to achieve their dream. Becoming parents!
