FAQ

Every woman’s fertile days are different. In women with a stable cycle, they are usually found in the middle of the cycle. There are the following methods for determining the fertile days: a simple ovulation test that you can find in the pharmacy and a special thermogram with body temperature measurement and an ultrasound scan.

No, it is not impossible. However, the chances are much less.

After a year of unprotected and unprotected sexual intercourse that has not resulted in conception or when the woman is older (over 40 years old). In any case , if you have concerns about your fertility, you can consult a reproductive specialist at any time.

IVF is a method of assisted reproduction in which eggs and sperm are collected and then fertilised in an embryology laboratory. The embryos that are formed are then kept in the laboratory, usually for 5 days, and then the embryos are transferred and cryopreserved for the remaining embryos. IVF is the assisted reproduction method with the highest success rates.

To date, it is estimated that more than 8 million children have been born using this method and the number continues to grow. IVF is a safe method of assisted reproduction, as long as all the rules laid down by international scientific organisations are respected.

There was a limit of 50 years for women, which has recently been extended to 54 years, while there is no limit for men.

This happens when more than one embryo is transferred to the uterus and then implanted. The decision on the number of embryos to be transferred is made by the reproductive doctor and the couple after discussion. The National Assisted Reproduction Authority sets limits for each age group of patients on the maximum number of embryos that may be transferred. During the procedure our medical team will take your medical history and thoroughly review all your tests as part of the infertility investigation. You will discuss about treatment methods, your treatment plan and you may be asked to undergo further tests.

The first IVF was performed in 1978 and since then it has evolved significantly in its individual areas. In most cases, the method of microfertilisation (ICSI) is used, in which sperm is injected into the egg through a special needle, significantly increasing the chances of fertilisation.

There are two main ways to achieve fertilisation, which we use on a case-by-case basis. The first is the traditional IVF method, where the eggs and sperm are placed in a dish with nutrient material. The second method of fertilisation is microfertilisation (ICSI – Intracytoplasmic sperm injection), in which the embryologist inserts a sperm into each mature egg with a special needle. The decision on the choice of fertilisation method is made by the assisted reproduction specialist gynaecologist, based on the quality of the sperm and the couple’s fertility history. Embryos formed through IVF may be subjected to pre-implantation testing, i.e. their chromosomes are checked to see if they carry any chromosomal abnormalities. We perform preimplantation testing when there are specific indications, such as advanced age of the woman or a history of miscarriages in the couple.

No. IVF treatment involves ovarian stimulation, the duration of which is 10-12 days and will require 3 to 5 ultrasound sessions with the reproductive doctor. During this time you can work normally. On the day of the Fertilia ovulation you will need to miss work and then you can return normally. From the day of the embryo transfer onwards you can also work, as long as your work is not accompanied by physical strain that could reduce the chances of success of your treatment.

No special preparation is required. Just drink plenty of fluids so that you have a full bladder during the procedure.

Usually, about ten days, but this may vary depending on the treatment protocol chosen by your doctor or the response of each woman’s ovaries.

That morning you must not have eaten anything and arrive at the unit on time. It is also useful to let us know of any allergies you may have.

You should contact the clinic and immediately the doctor and her team will give you the appropriate instructions.

Tell your doctor and continue the treatment you have been given.

Usually, you can have another cycle of IVF three months after the failed attempt, unless you have planned tests or agreed an alternative plan with your doctor.

If you are insured by the National Health Insurance Fund (EOPYY), you can go through the special committee for IVF that will check your file and give you the opportunity to obtain the ovarian stimulation drugs free of charge. You will be informed in detail about the committee and the preparation of the file by our experienced staff, who will be at your side throughout the preparation and submission of the file.
