How does IVF work?
IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment begins with a course of hormone therapy to stimulate the development of several eggs in the ovary. Mature eggs are then collected in a process known as egg retrieval and fertilized with sperm in a lab to create embryos. After two to five days in an incubator, the fertilized embryos are transferred through the vagina to the uterus, where implantation occurs and pregnancy begins.
IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. The procedure can be done using one’s own eggs and your partner's sperm — or IVF may involve eggs, sperm or embryos from a known or anonymous donor. In some cases, a gestational carrier or surrogate has an embryo implanted in her uterus to carry the pregnancy to term for an individual or couple.
IVF success rates depend on many factors, including age and the cause of infertility. Success rates vary with the number of embryos transferred. However, transferring more embryos at one time does not increase the chance of live birth significantly, but may only increase the risk of a multiple pregnancy.
Most fertility clinics in Greece utilize a multi-disciplinary professional team. During your IVF treatment cycle, many team members, will participate in your fertility care.
