The utmost reason why couples fail to have baby is that they are not properly able to decide which procedure will be match with their condition. The most important factor is the accurate evaluation ofcouples with great attention in every aspect and after that planning the treatment individually to their needs. With its 65% pregnancy rate which is above the world average, Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) teams are dedicated to help you make your little dream come true.
ICSI and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) are exactly the same. In ICSI cycle each suitable mature egg is injected with a single prepared sperm cell which is obtained from the partner. ICSI was developed to treat cases of male infertility in which too few or poor quality sperms were available in the ejaculate for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) teams put a lot of effort in working on incomplete in vitro fertilization cases, advanced maternal age, recurrent about us and intense infertility of man, as well as practicing preimplantation genetic diagnosis on families who have risk of inherited disorder.
In Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Centers, many genetic disorders such as thalassemia, muscle diseases, hemophilia in the embryos can be recognized, thus we can help healthy infants born.
Thanks to great success of our centers with the wide range of treatment procedures, Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) centers have outstanding importance in Turkey, Europe and the World.

Q: There are numerous In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Clinics. What is special about the Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Center?
A: Memorial In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Genetics Center is the largest In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Center in Turkey and has been providing fertility services since 2000. Around 3,000 couples are accepted for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) each year. Throughout their treatment they receive care from a team of specialists who closely coordinate to achieve best results. All of our In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) doctors are highly trained and board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Q: What is the success rate in the Memorial clinic?
A: Success rates differ depending on various factors. Among these, women’s age and previous failed In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles are the main two factors. The pregnancy rate in young couples with a good prognosis is approximately 65%, whereas in couples with a poor prognosis, such as those with a maternal age of over 40y, or with more than three previous failed In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles, the pregnancy rate is significantly lower, decreasing up to 15-20%. After 43 years pregnancy rate is about 3-5 %.
Q: Do we need to visit the clinic for a pre-treatment appointment? If so, when?
A: Whenever possible, it is best for both partners to come to the clinic for a thorough evaluation before treatment is started. If a couple wish to start treatment during the initial visit, then it is essential that the woman should come on day two or three of her period. It is preferable for her husband to have abstained from intercourse for three to four days before the visit so that sperm analysis can be carried out.
Q: How many days will we need to stay in Turkey?
A: One cycle of treatment takes approximately sixteen to seventeen days. COH begins on the second or third day of the menstruation period. Generally it takes seven to ten days, depending on whether it is a short or a long protocol.
After that, hCG; the drug that stimulates final oocyte maturation, is given, and thirty-six hours later OPU is performed. Three to five days after OPU, embryos are transferred. Transfer day depends upon the number and quality of the embryos.
Q: What is day one of my cycle?
A: Day one is calculated as the first full day of your period, with heavy bleeding that starts before midday; so for timing purposes, you can ignore spotting or light premenstrual bleeding.
Q: What documents should I bring when I come to my first appointment? What tests may be carried out before In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment?
A: The first step of treatment is a complete evaluation of both partners and a range of tests are needed.
Q: What further tests might I be advised to have after the first appointment?
A: Karyotyping: In cases of severe male infertility, repeated pregnancy losses or repeated In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) failure, both male and female karyotypes are useful to exclude the possibility chromosomal abnormalities.
Hysterosalpingography (HSG): This may be helpful if there is a history of pelvic infection, abdominal surgery, endometriosis or intrauterine adhesion in order to diagnose possible tubal or uterine cavity abnormalities.
Hysteroscopy: This procedure is helpful if there is a suspicion of a uterine cavity problem.
Laparoscopy: This procedure is helpful if there is a suspicion of tubal damage, hydrosalpingistis or the signs of severe endometritis. Both diagnosis and treatment can be carried out during a laparoscopy.
Q: Is it possible to send blood samples from abroad? If so, how should this be done?
A: It is possible to send and receive samples of blood, DNA, sperm or even embryonic tissues for analysis from abroad. Please contact our genetic laboratory for further information.
Q: What should be the time interval between two In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments?
A: During the treatment drugs enlarges the ovaries and oocyte pick up is done. So in order to wait the healing period generally waiting at least two months before starting a new treatments is preferred.
Q: Can I have treatment at the dentist, color my hair, or go swimming?
A: Yes. There is no evidence that any of these activities can be harmful. You should live your life as normally as possible during your treatment. It is important that you are relaxed and comfortable with yourself at this time and during any resulting pregnancy.
