IVF – In Vitro Fertilisation Long

Artificial Fertilisation

IVF are various methods of artificially inducing pregnancy when this has not worked out by natural ways.

So What Is

  • IVF or artificial insemination is used to achieve a pregnancy in a laboratory. Most modern technology is needed for this process.
  • Turkey is one of the most sought-after countries in the field of IVF.
  • Intratubal gene transfer, on the other hand, involves using technical assistance to facilitate fertilization inside the woman’s body.
  • Depending on medical factors, couples can use either their own sperm and eggs or donor material to achieve pregnancy.
  • Please notice, that in Turkey the donation of eggs, sperm, and embryos is not allowed by law. Only married couples will be accepted for these treatments

Good to know before IVF treatment in Turkey

  • In Turkey, the donation of eggs, sperm and embryos is strictly prohibited by law, and surrogacy is not allowed.
  • Only married couples can participate in artificial insemination treatment in Turkey
  • Although there is no age limit for these treatments by law, some clinics do not treat women over 46 years of age.
  • For women younger than 35, only one embryo may be transferred in the first and second cycles, while three embryos may be transferred in the third cycle.
    For women older than 35, transfer of 2 embryos is allowed in the first cycle.
  • Clinics can keep the embryos for 10 years, but you must provide a valid reason for this request. This applies, for example, to cancer patients and women with limited ovarian reserve.
  • PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) and PGD (aneuploid screening) are allowed, but the law does not allow gender selection.
  • To achieve the highest possible success rate, the laboratory plays a very crucial role. Only in a healthy environment can successful fertilisation and cultivation of embryos take place.
  • Another crucial role is played by the experience as well as the qualification of the embryologists, who should be familiar with all modern procedures.


In the first 24 hours after embryo transfer, it is very important, that the woman rests. During the first day, it is expected, that the embryo implants properly in the uterus.
Stay at home in a comfortable and well-rested manner. Bed rest is not prescribed, but you should avoid heavy work, physical exertion and lifting heavy objects under all circumstances.

What is the success rate of IVF?

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), about 80 percent of women who undergo IVF treatment will become pregnant within the first three to four cycles.

Are IVF babies normal?

Yes, generally, IVF babies develop the same as babies received by natural conception. Couples are closely monitored and carefully supervised during treatment. In most cases, they give birth to a healthy baby.

What are the risk of IVF?

Although IVF is now a proven treatment method, there is a slight risk that babies conceived through IVF will have lower birth weights and be born prematurely. Your treating doctor will discuss details with you.

Can I choose gender with IVF?

In Turkey, preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and aneuploid screening (PGD) are allowed, but the law does not allow gender selection.

How many eggs are needed for IVF?

During the treatment, the woman will undergo a hormone therapy to stimulate her ovaries. Also, the quality of the eggs is an important factor and not all eggs can be used for IVF. However, the more eggs are available, the higher the change for the success.

What happens to unused eggs?

In Turkey, the donation of sperms and eggs is forbidden by law. This means, that unused eggs either need to be destroyed or stored.
Eggs can be stored in certain clinics, but you need a plausible reason for such a request, e.g. cancer treatment or other. There will be an extra payment for storage. Maximum storage duration is 5 years.

What is the difference between insemination and IVF treatment?

During insemination, also called artificial insemination, the sperms are injected into the woman’s body. For this procedure, different methods are available, like IUI, ICI or ITI. The fertilisation takes place in the woman’s body.
During an IVF treatment, fertilisation is realized in a laboratory.

Do I need hormone medication before insemination?

Your doctor may prescribe you some medication before the insemination treatment, depending on your individual situation. Hormone medication can be used to stimulate ovaries so that more eggs are produced and the chance for a successful insemination is increased.

Can I get sperm donation in Turkey?

No, in Turkey, the donation of sperms as well as the donation of eggs is not allowed by law. Only married couples may undergo a fertilisation treatment.

What age is IVF most successful?

In generally, the younger the woman, the more successful is the treatment. In younger ages, your body produces more eggs and also more quality eggs, which increases the chances of a successful treatment. Statistic says, that the success rate is the highest when the woman is under 35 years of age.

How many times can I do IVF within a year?

In principle, there is no limitation for the number of treatments per year. However, as the treatment goes ahead with hormone medication, most women choose a break between the treatments to get recovered physically as well as psychically.
