What is In Vitro Fertilisation?

In vitro fertilisation treatment consists of fertilising the ovum and sperm in the laboratory. It is a complex treatment where our medical team works continuously connected with the assisted reproduction laboratory.

The woman is stimulated to be able to obtain the ovules that later in the laboratory together with the semen of her partner in vitro fertilisation takes place, obtaining the embryos. The embryo that is best for implantation in the woman’s uterus will be chosen.

In Vitro Fertilisation Process

Consult our specialists

Before starting an in vitro fertilisation treatment, it’s necessary to carry out a personalized and individualized study of the couple. The basic tests that are performed within this visit are:

  • Ultrasound to confirm that the uterus and ovaries are ready to start treatment.
  • Ovarian reserve analysis, this is obtained through an analysis of the antimullerian hormone.

estradiol and FSH, in addition to antral follicle count by ultrasound.

  • Infectious disease analysis.
  • Seminogram of the couple.
  • However, our team of specialists may determine that further testing is necessary.

Starting Treatment

Once the results of all the tests are obtained, the treatment begins. The first stage consists of ovarian stimulation to the woman. It begins with the administration of gonadotropins between the first and third day of menstruation.

This medication is used to stimulate the functioning of the ovaries in a controlled manner. After approximately 5 days from the start of stimulation, medication with GnRH antagonists is added, which allows control of ovarian stimulation and a better response to gonadotropins, in addition to avoiding the LH surge so that there is no ovulation.

The administration of this medication should be daily.

Ultrasound scans will be performed approximately every 48 hours to monitor the follicles and when the gynecologist decides, the follicular puncture should be scheduled. At that time the patient should stop all the medication that was being administered and inject an ovulation inducer. Ovulation induction can be done by using a hCG hormone or by a GnRH agonist or both.

In Vitro Fertilisation

The follicular puncture will be performed 36h after the administration of the medication.

Transfer

Embryo transfer can be performed 5 days post puncture or embryos can be vitrified and transferred in another cycle.

For fresh embryo transfer, vaginal administration of progesterone is necessary.

Progesterone will be started the night of the puncture day and this medication will be maintained until approximately the 12th week of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Test

The pregnancy test is performed between 10-14 days post transfer.
