Before embarking on an in vitro fertilization treatment, the diagnosis is fundamental, together with a highly customized strategy for the cycle adapted to each individual case.
Once all complementary diagnostic test results have been studied, and a specific strategy has been adopted, ovarian stimulation begins. This is a medically supervised process for the purpose of causing the ovaries to produce the maximum quantity of optimum quality egg cells.
During this process, specialized physicians conduct different checks and analyses to monitor the growth of the follicles, the cellular structures that contain the ova.
When the egg cells are mature, the ovarian puncture is scheduled, which is carried out in the operating rooms of our IVF clinic. This is a simple surgical procedure that is usually performed under sedation, in which the specialist extracts mature egg cells from the woman’s ovaries.
Next, these egg cells are transferred to the laboratory to be fertilized by traditional IVF or by IVF-ICSI.
The mastery of the technique on the part of the specialists, the conditions of stability of the IVF laboratory, the available technology or the quality of the cultivation media utilized are decisive for the success of the in vitro fertilization.
Once fertilization has occurred, the embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus on Day 3 or in the blastocyst phase (about Day 5), as determined in the strategy of each patient. The remaining embryos will be vitrified for future use.
When 9-10 days have passed after the embryo transfer, we will carry out the pregnancy test.
