This treatment consists of extracting and fertilizing the egg with donor sperm or sperm from the partner in the laboratory. The embryo culture in the laboratory requires constant surveillance and control of multiple parameters; for this reason the in vitro fertilization greatly depends on the quality of the laboratory as well as on the applied assisted reproduction techniques.
This method was initially developed for treating tubal infertility (closed Fallopian tubes). However, nowadays it is used for treating both male and female infertility.
It is performed by means of personalized and controlled ovarian stimulation, using next-gen protocols in order to obtain an adequate number of eggs.
Pregnancy rates 30 - 70%.*
In Vitro Fertilization
- With sperm from partner.
- With donor sperm.
Spain has one of the most progressive laws on assisted reproduction worldwide. Both sperm and egg donation are legal and anonymous. In addition, Spanish law provides that children born by means of assisted reproduction techniques shall not be able to obtain information regarding the donor - similarly, the donor shall not be able to obtain information, such as the identity of the conceived child.
For whom is it appropriate?
- Patients between 30 - 42 years (with normal ovarian reserve).
- Fallopian tube pathologies.
- Irregular periods.
- Male infertility.
- Artificial insemination failure.
- Risk of transmitting genetic or chromosomal alterations.
Treatment viability depends on medical diagnosis.
*Pregnancy rates depend on age, ovarian reserve, individual response to treatment and genetics. Displayed data are representative to the studied cases.
