IVF and How It Is Done

In vitro fertilization or IVF is an assisted reproductive therapy through which the female’s egg is mixed with the male’s sperm in the laboratory. After fertilization, the embryo is cultured in a laboratory for a period of time and then, it is inserted into the mother’s uterus through the cervix. In sum, IVF is done in four steps of ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, sperm and egg fertilization, and embryo transfer.

Ideal Candidates for Doing IVF in Iran

In Iran, thousands of in vitro fertilizations are done annually, most of which are successful; however, the IVF candidates should have some basic features in order to achieve good results. In general, IVF is suitable for:

  • Women under the age of 35;
  • People with healthy lifestyle;
  • Women with blocked fallopian tube; 
  • Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS);
  • Women with severe endometriosis; and
  • Men with low sperm count and motility.

Despite the fact that many patients are satisfied with their IVF results in Iran, this treatment is not proper for some patients. For instance, the patients with fibroid tumors, high blood pressure, ovarian malfunction, hormonal imbalance, and uterine irregularities have lower chance of success and are not considered ideal candidates for IVF.

  • Take prescribed medications as instructed; and
