Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For IVF with ICSI

Candidates for IVF with ICSI are all couples who struggle to have their own baby. However, there are also some instances when ICSI is especially recommended. These are: 

• Low-quality sperm 

• Low amount of sperm 

• Problem with vitality or morphology of sperm

• Repeated failed fertilization attempts with conventional IVF

• Poor sperm movement

Not Recommended For IVF with ICSI

If you want to have higher chances of conceiving a baby through in vitro fertilization, ICSI procedure may be a good choice. The same goes for couples where man has problems with sperm quality. However, if you have been treated in the past and have not fertilized due to poor quality or immature eggs, ICSI is unlikely to help.

Discharge From Hospital

Outpatient procedure

Duration Of Operation

Two times half a day, but the whole process takes up to 5 days

Overview

In vitro, fertilization is well-known infertility treatment. For couples who struggle to have kids and for some reasons cannot, IVF treatment offers a unique possibility – conception outside of the human body. 

While this approach of IVF is widely known, there is also a newer, more effective technique – IVF with ICSI. ICSI in the name of this procedure stands for intracytoplasmic sperm injection, and it means that sperm cell is injected into the egg through artificial insemination. Therefore, this technique provides a higher possibility of success in fertilization and birth. Male factor infertility or poor-quality sperm production is responsible for approximately 40–50% of fertility problems worldwide. In vitro fertilization with ICSI is performed with ejaculated sperm selected for the presence of small cytoplasmic droplets when the male partner was diagnosed with severe male factor infertility.

Preparation

IVF with ICSI does not involve any elaborate preparation. A female patient will receive a fertility drug, inducing the production of eggs, and some blood test will be performed. Men will need to have sperm testing in the meanwhile. This testing involves giving a semen sample, which a lab will analyze for the number, size, and shape of the sperm in order to understand whether partner's sperm has enough high quality to be useful in artificial insemination. If not, donor sperm may be considered as a solution.

How It Is Performed

As the first step of IVF with ICSI, eggs, and sperm cells are extracted. As for sperm, a man may produce a sample by himself. If it is not possible, a surgical extraction may be necessary. After securing eggs and sperm cells, doctors perform artificial insemination. Hormones such as progesterone are given to woman patient in order to prepare her womb to carry a baby. As a final stage, after 2-5 days, newly conceived embryos are implanted into the woman's body. In short, the process is the same as a normal IVF process only if the initial sperm testing shows that the sperm are weak or damaged, IVF with ICSI procedure may be used, and during this procedure, a technician injects sperm directly into the egg. All other steps are carried out the same as normal IVF.

Recovery

There is no recovery period after IVF with ICSI. If the in vitro fertilization fails, a new cycle is started after a few weeks, as in regular IVF procedure.

Risks

There are no risks and complications related to IVF with ICSI treatment. ICSI procedure is not an invasive one unless the sperm needs to be extracted operationally from the male partner's body.

Side Effects

Hormone injections used as a part of IVF with ICSI treatment, as well, and it may cause a woman to feel a little swollen, but it is not a really unpleasant experience. Apart from this, there are no side effects of IVF with ICSI.

Success Rates

When talking about IVF success rate while using the ICSI procedure, it is necessary to differentiate between fertilization success rate and birth success rate. IVF with ICSI results in 50-80% of successfully fertilized eggs. However, as in the case of standard in vitro fertilization, the successful pregnancy and birth rates of IVF with ICSI treatment depend on the age of the female partner. In the case of women under 35, IVF with ICSI success rate is as high as 48%, while for women of 42 or older. The success rate is estimated to be around 7%. Additionally, a normal pregnancy carries a risk of birth defects around 1.5 to 3%. IVF with ICSI treatment carries some risk of birth defects but is still rare. 

Before And After

IVF with ICSI increases the possibility of egg fertilization and as such – increases the possibility that as the result of your infertility treatment you will be a happy parent, as it is seen in many IVF with ICSI success stories

Faq

IVF vs. ICSI? Is There A Difference Between Normal IVF And IVF with ICSI?

Yes, IVF with ICSI procedure achieves better results in egg fertilization, and therefore it increases the possibility of successful pregnancy and birth. 

 

What Does ICSI Stand For?

ICSI stands for "intracytoplasmic sperm injection." With this procedure, the sperm cell is directly injected into an egg, thus minimizing the possibility of failed conception. 

 

Who Should Decide for IVF with ICSI?

Although it may be recommended for all couples who decide to treat infertility, the IVF with ICSI procedure is particularly useful for a man whose sperm cells are low quality, low number or with abnormal morphology.
