How is IVF treatment applied?
No pain or pain is felt during the procedure. A slight pain may be felt after the collection process is finished. This pain, which can be easily relieved with mild medications, does not have a negative effect on the daily life of the woman.
Embryo transfer is the most critical step in IVF treatment. Whether the treatment is successful or not depends on whether the embryos hold. In accordance with the regulations in IVF treatment, one embryo is transferred to women under the age of 35 and two embryos are transferred to women over the age of 35. In this way, the possibility of multiple pregnancy can be controlled.
12 days after embryo transfer, a blood pregnancy test is performed and the result is learned. If an unsuccessful result is obtained, a new IVF trial can be made after 1-2 months. If the second and third attempts are unsuccessful, a treatment can be started again after additional examinations such as some genetic tests and hysteroscopy.
There is no limit to the number of IVF treatments. While some couples can have children after a few tries, some couples are successful on their first try. After the fourth attempt, there is an 80% chance of achieving pregnancy.
