Compare 12 clinics

In Vitro Fertilization, also known as IVF is a type of artificial insemination in which an egg is fertilised with sperm in a laboratory, outside the body, before being reinserted into the uterus. Every year, around 30.000 couples from the USA alone opt for an in vitro fertilisation procedure – around 30% of them manage to conceive a child from the first IVF cycle.

IVF Candidates

IVF is recommended for patients or couples that cannot or are having troubles in conceiving naturally. Same-sex couples and single individuals are good candidates for an IVF treatment.

Am I Suitable for IVF?

In Vitro Fertilization is generally not recommended for patients over 40 years of age or patients with uterine abnormalities which can interfere with the IVF process.

Preparing for IVF

Dealing with infertility issues can be emotionally draining for any couple. It’s best to be as informed as possible and know what to expect from an IVF cycle. Patients or couples can use an IVF calculator to estimate their IVF success rate and an IVF pregnancy calculator to find out their due date.

How is IVF Performed?

A full IVF process is also called an IVF cycle – this includes all the necessary steps to reach a successful pregnancy. The first step of an IVF treatment is interviewing the couple or patient and discussing past pregnancies, potential anterior IVF attempts, potential infertility issues or infections of the reproductive system and other details related to the in vitro fertilisation procedure itself.

The second step of the procedure is providing the patient with “IVF injections” which help to stimulate the development of eggs. The injections usually start on the second or third day of the patient’s menstrual cycle and are crucial in stimulating the ovarian follicles that produce the eggs.

Once the eggs reach maturity, they are retrieved and then fertilized in laboratory conditions. The healthiest and strongest sperm is used to fertilize these eggs – one of them will be selected for embryo transfer. In the final stage of the procedure, the fertilized egg is transferred back into the uterus and once it attaches to the lining of the uterus, IVF pregnancy can begin.

If the male partner suffers from infertility issues, the IVF ICSI technique can be used to ensure fertilization of the egg.

IVF Risks and Complications

One of the biggest risks of an IVF pregnancy is the probability of multiple births: 63% of IVF babies are single children, 5% are triplets or more and 32% are IVF twins.

IVF Side Effects

IVF side effects generally vary from person to person and also depend on the intake of stimulatory drugs. Some patients may experience nausea, breast tenderness, headaches and bloating.

IVF Success Rates

The success rate of an In Vitro Fertilisation procedure depends on a few factors such as the patient’s body mass, caffeine and alcohol intake, the patient’s body mass index, the patient’s age, the duration of the patient’s infertility and the number of oocytes produced by the body. Women aged 25-39 are most likely to conceive from the first IVF cycle.

ISO certified infertility clinics generally have a patient satisfaction rate of at least 70% or over.

The IVF success rate can be calculated on the number of live births, but the figures depend highly on the patient’s age:

● 35 or younger – 43% to 50%
● 35 to 40 – 35% to 40%
● 40 or older – 15 to 18%

Istanbul

Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and In Europe, according to population – it has over 14 million inhabitants. Istanbul is Turkey’s financial, cultural and healthcare hub – it’s the city with the most JCI accredited private hospitals. The city spreads on both sides of the Bosphorus – The strait that divides the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. Istanbul also connects Europe to Asia forming a very interesting mix, both gastronomically and culturally.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Tourists can enjoy a wide range of shopping centres and bazaars such as the Grand Bazaar, the Egyptian bazaar and many modern shopping malls all around Istanbul.

Things to Know

● Tourists arriving in Istanbul will be required to purchase a tourist Visa – the procedure can be easily done online or at a visa machine before the immigration section of the airport. The Visa costs around 20 USD.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Usually planes land at the Atatürk Airport (IATA:IST) which is just 20 km from the city centre. From there a visitor can take a taxi to Taksim Square for around TRY60. Tourists can also use a local airport service called Havataş which runs express bus services every 30 minutes for around TRY11 to Taksim Square and Aksaray.

● Food and drink at the airport is quite expensive and may cost 4 times more than in the city. It is advisable to bring your own meals from the town if you have a lot of waiting to do at the airport. There is also a supermarket close to the airport metro entrance where you can buy reasonably priced food and drink.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira (TRY) just about anywhere across Istanbul. Most shops and supermarkets also accept credit cards for payment.

● Roaming fees in Turkey are expensive, but you can simply buy a new SIM card when you reach Istanbul and use it for the duration of your stay.

● Istanbul has a humid subtropical climate, so the summer months are generally warm and in winter temperatures differ from place to place.
