In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
In vitro fertilisation is the process of fertilisation in a laboratory in order to obtain viable embryos for implantation in the mother’s uterus.
These procedures are intended for people who have a condition that prevents them from conceiving naturally. Potentially due to an obstruction in the fallopian tubes, endometriosis or fibroids.
It is also for women who have postponed motherhood.
There are two types of fertilisation: IVF or ICSI.
Regardless of the method, the patient must first receive hormonal treatment to stimulate the production of eggs.
After a period of 15-20 days, an ovarian puncture is performed to retrieve the eggs.
These eggs are then fertilised using the traditional (adding a few drops of semen to the sample) or the ICSI technique (the embryologists select the best sperm from the semen sample and inject them one by one into the egg).
The embryos are then cultivated for approximately one week. After that, the embryos (maximum of 3) are transferred to the uterus through a cannula.
The embryos that are not used during the first process are then frozen for a possible second attempt.
The result may vary depending on the different probabilities that your doctor will have informed you of from the beginning of your treatment process.
However, you will already be one step closer to having your baby.
The complete IVF process requires the patient to be in Spain for at least a month. In some cases, the patient can start the ovarian stimulation in their country of origin and the time spent in Spain is reduced to about 15 days.
