In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - Cycles

IVF is a medical treatment. The treatment consists of clinical procedures necessary to facilitate the union of the ovules (oocytes) and sperm in the laboratory, to obtain embryos that will be introduced into the uterus in order to procure the opportunity for conception in women with difficulties in fertility. We offer two programs for this treatment. The technique used in both programs is the same. The difference between them lies in the number of cycles that each one of them collects and the services offered.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) 1 Cycle

Begins with an evaluation by the treating physician on the first day of the menstrual period.

The first stage involves stimulating the ovaries with medication to achieve the maturation of multiple eggs, instead of just one, as occurs in a natural cycle. This multiple maturation process lasts approximately 10 to 12 days. The process can begin in the patient’s own clinic in in their country of residence and end in the fertility center. 

 

The second phase of the treatment is the egg retrieval, a procedure that is performed in the operating room under sedation, with an approximate duration of 10 to 15 minutes with a rapid recovery period. The eggs are extracted vaginally, and simultaneously the partner provides a semen sample. This continues with the union of the gametes in the laboratory to achieve fertilization. After 3 to 5 days of incubation, the embryos will have grown and can be transferred into the uterus. This is an outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia.  

 

Furthermore, at the end of the treatment cycle, embryos can be obtained that are not transferred during the first attempt, but can be cryopreserved for use in other transfers as a second opportunity to become pregnant. 

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) 4 Cycles

Begins with an evaluation by the treating physician on the first day of the menstrual period.

The first stage involves stimulating the ovaries with medication to achieve the maturation of multiple eggs, instead of just one, as occurs in a natural cycle. This multiple maturation process lasts approximately 10 to 12 days. The process can begin in the patient’s own clinic in their country of residence and end in the fertility center.

The eggs are extracted vaginally, and simultaneously the partner provides a semen sample. This continues with the union of the gametes in the laboratory to achieve fertilization. After 3 to 5 days of incubation, the embryos will have grown and can be transferred into the uterus. This is an outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia.  

 

An IVF cycle ends here, however, if pregnancy is not achieved in the first cycle. This treatment program allows for three more attempts at IVF. Each treatment cycle may result in additional embryos that are not transferred in the first attempt but can be cryopreserved for use in other transfers as a new opportunity to become pregnant. 

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - Egg Donation

The IVF with donor eggs is a medical treatment. It consists of clinical procedures aimed at facilitating the union of the donated ovules (oocytes) of a woman who shares physical similarities with the recipient woman and the sperm of her partner in order to obtain ovules that will be introduced into the uterus of the recipient woman. This treatment is carried out so as to procure a pregnancy in women who have lost their ovulatory capacity due to different conditions. At Inser we offer two programs for this treatment. The technique used for both programs is the same. The difference between them lies in the number of cycles that each one of them collects and the services offered.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) IVF - 1 Cycle with Egg Donation

This procedure requires the use of medication to prepare the future mother, which helps with the growth of the inner layer of the uterus (endometrium). The aim is to ensure that the embryos produced in the laboratory with the sperm of the partner (or of a donor) are received in the best conditions. The eggs of the donor have been selected previously through the Center for Assisted Reproduction, under strict criteria and take into account the preferences of the recipient couple.   

 

When the laboratory has successfully obtained the embryos, which are a product of the donated egg and sperm, the embryos are transferred on their third or fifth day of development to the uterus of the future mother. This is an outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia and lasts a maximum of 15 minutes. Furthermore, at the end of the treatment cycle, embryos can be obtained that are not transferred during the first attempt but can be cryopreserved for use in other transfers as a second opportunity to become pregnant. 

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) IVF - 3 Cycles with Egg Donation

This procedure that requires the use of medication to prepare the future mother, which helps with the growth of the inner layer of the uterus (endometrium). The aim is to ensure that the embryos produced in the laboratory with the sperm of the partner (or of a donor) are received in the best conditions. The eggs of the donor that have been selected previously from the Center for Assisted Reproduction, under strict criteria and taking into account the preferences of the recipient couple.

Egg cryopreservation

Egg cryopreservation begins with an evaluation by the treating physician on the first day of the menstrual period. The first stage involves stimulating the ovaries with medication to achieve the maturation of multiple eggs, instead of just one, as occurs in a natural cycle. This multiple maturation process lasts approximately 10 to 12 days. The process can begin in the patient’s own clinic in their home country/ in their country of residence and end in the fertility center. 

 

The second phase of the treatment is egg retrieval, a procedure that is performed in the operating room under sedation, lasting approximately 10 to 15 minutes and with a short recovery period. The eggs are extracted vaginally and delivered to the laboratory where those that are in a suitable state of maturity are selected for cryopreservation.

 

In some cases, several ovarian stimulations may be necessary to accumulate a sufficient number of eggs to be able to offer a genuine opportunity for future fertility.
