In Vitro Fertilisation is a technique focused on achieving the union of the egg and the sperm in the laboratory, to obtain embryos that can be transferred to the mother’s uterus. The fertilisation of the eggs can be carried out by conventional IVF technique or ICSI In Vitro Fertilisation in Turkey.

What does the In Vitro Fertilisation IVF/ICSI in Turkey consist of?

Ovarian stimulation

Controlled ovarian stimulation consists of the administration of injections to ensure that the ovaries, instead of producing a single oocyte – as they do naturally each month – produce more oocytes, suitable for fertilization, in order to obtain a greater number of embryos.

The treatment lasts between 10 and 20 days, depending on the protocol used. During the course of the treatment, clinical controls are carried out, consisting of the evaluation of hormone blood levels and ultrasound control of follicular development, to check that the growth and evolution of the follicles is adequate

Oocyte retrieval

When we confirm that most of the ovarian follicles are between 19 and 21 mm in size, the induction phase is concluded and an injection is administered subcutaneously to induce oocyte maturation, approximately 36 hours before oocyte retrieval.

For the puncture, the patient is admitted as an outpatient without the need to sleep in the hospital. The puncture or egg retrieval is performed in the operating theatre under sedation, so that the patient does not feel any discomfort.

The embryologist will use a microscope to identify the oocytes obtained from the puncture, which will then be isolated and classified according to their maturation stage. On the other hand, in this second phase, a sperm sample (from a partner or donor) will be necessary for its subsequent capacitation.


Once the eggs and sperm are available, the union of both is carried out so that fertilisation can take place.

This process can be carried out by the conventional IVF technique, which consists of placing an egg in the culture plate together with a high quantity of capacitated spermatozoa (approx. 250,000/ml) or by ICSI, intracytoplasmic microinjection, which consists of introducing a live spermatozoon into the egg. They are then stored in a biological incubator at a temperature of 37°C and a gas concentration and humidity level similar to the human body.

The resulting embryos are checked daily and classified according to their morphology and ability to divide.

Embryo transfer

This consists of introducing viable embryos through the cervix and depositing them approximately 1.5 cm from the uterine fundus. A specific embryo transfer catheter is used for this purpose. The number of embryos to be transferred will depend on the patient’s age, the number of previous attempts made without achieving gestation, and medical criteria.

The patient does not need any analgesia during this process, as the procedure is quick and painless, but it will be performed in a surgical area close to the Reproduction Laboratory.

The patient and the medical team will agree on whether subsequent rest is appropriate in her specific case.

During the following days it is usually necessary to receive treatment with vaginal or subcutaneous progesterone, and in some cases with oral, vaginal or transdermal oestrogens.

Pregnancy testing is performed 12 to 14 days after transfer. Urine pregnancy testing allows the moment of the result and its emotional implications to be experienced in privacy.

Embryo vitrification

After the embryo transfer, vitrification of the non-transferred quality embryos is carried out so that they can be used in a subsequent cycle without the need for a new ovarian stimulation.
