What is IVF?
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) uses the couple’s own eggs and sperm, but fertilization occurs outside the body, in a laboratory. This allows control and optimization of conditions. The resulting embryo is implanted into the woman’s uterus, or womb, three to five days after laboratory fertilization.
IVF – ICSI
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is sometimes used in conjunction with IVF. The two procedures are almost identical, except that instead of allowing fertilization to occur spontaneously in the laboratory, an embryologist will inject a specific sperm cell into an ovum (egg). The chosen sperm is selected based on its normal structure and function.
ICSI success rates are identical to IVF success rates, listed above.
IVF-ICSI can be very useful in several situations, including:
- Problems with sperm cells, including malformation or impaired movement
- Ejaculation problems in the male partner
- When using eggs that have been frozen or matured in a laboratory.
Who is a Good Candidate
Women between the ages of 30 and 42 who have normal ovarian reserves.
Couples who have suffered from:
- Low sperm counts;
- Problems with the uterus or fallopian tubes;
- Problems with ovulation;
- Antibody problems that harm sperm or eggs;
- The inability of sperm to penetrate or survive in the cervical mucus;
- An unexplained fertility problem.

Like many fertility treatments, IVF is more frequently successful in younger women. The likelihood of a successful IVF procedure can be increased by abstaining from alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco before and during the procedure.
The 2010 pregnancy rates for IVF that lead to a live birth were:
- Women under 35: 32.2%
- Women aged 35 – 37: 27.7%
- Women aged 38 – 39: 20.8%
- Women aged 40 – 42: 13.6%
Due to extremely low success rates in older patient populations, IVF is not a recommended procedure for women over 42. However, different destinations offer different age limit. Consult us for more details.
