In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) involves joining an egg with sperm in the laboratory –in vitro– in order to obtain fertilized embryos to be transferred to the mother’s uterus to evolve until pregnancy is achieved.

When is it used?

In vitro fertilisation can be carried out with the sperm from the donor or the partner and it makes fertilisation easier when there are factors hindering the process. This treatment is recommended for:

  • Women who experienced various unsuccessful artificial insemination treatment attempts.
  • Women suffering from advanced endometriosis, with probable repercussions on the Fallopian tubes and on oocyte quality.
  • Advanced maternal age patients, with low-quality oocytes.
  • Women with an absence of or damaged Fallopian tubes.
  • Women with hydrosalpinx.
  • Couples in the case of which it is necessary to carry out a Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis.
  • Couples with males showing poor sperm quality (moderate or severe male factor infertility).

What does an IVF treatment involve?

First visit

An in vitro fertilisation treatment begins with your first visit to an IVI clinic, during which our specialists diagnose the patient, analysing their medical record and all the reports relative to previous treatments carried out in Spain or elsewhere, if applicable. Moreover, this appointment includes a complete gynaecological examination, as well as sperm analysis if the partner´s sperm is to be used. By means of this personalised diagnosis, IVI makes sure their patients receive a recommendation for the treatment that best adapts to their needs.
