Questions and Answers Concerned with IVF Treatment
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of the first methods of birth for couples who cannot have children. However, there are some questions regarding the answer to the IVF method. Here are some of these questions and answers:
A. General questions and answers about IVF treatment
1. What are the stages of IVF treatment?
Stimulation of ovaries, egg collection, sperm fertilization of eggs and transplantation of fertilized eggs (embryo transfer) are the stages.
2. How many times can IVF be tested?
Until the age of 44 can be tried as many as in vitro fertilization. However, the chance of pregnancy decreases after the first 3 attempts.
3. What is the possibility of successful IVF?
The success of IVF depends on the age of the woman and the quality of the embryo. Pregnancy rates under the age of 30 exceed 50 percent, but over the age of 40, it drops to 10-15 percent. IVF can be implemented up to 44 years of age.
4. Can sex be determined in IVF treatment?
Yes, it can be determined. However, in many countries, including Turkey, due to the ethical and legal reasons it is forbidden.
5. What are the factors that adversely affect the success of IVF treatment?
Removal of sperm from the testis, problems such as adhesions, fibroids or polyps that prevent embryos from sticking in the uterus, clogged tubes and water-filled tubes affect the success of the IVF.
B. Questions and Answers About Pre-IVF Treatment
1. What should be done if the sperm count is too low or there is no sperm in the sperm test?
If the sperm count is low, microinjection is performed. In cases where there is no sperm in the semen, sperm search should be performed surgically in the testis.
2. How are eggs collected in IVF treatment?
Eggs are collected by vaginal ultrasound and general or local anesthesia.
3. Is each egg fertilized?
Not all eggs are suitable for fertilization. The fertilization of the eggs depends on the fact that they are mature and structurally normal. In addition, not all fertilized eggs become a healthy embryo.
4. How are the embryos placed in the uterus after the eggs are fertilized?

Embryo transfer is a simple procedure. It is inserted into the uterus by ultrasound with a thin plastic catheter through the cervix.
5. Who is recommended for genetic examination in embryos?
Genetic diagnosis is possible in embryos in Mediterranean anemia, sickle cell anemia, and diseases that pass through a single gene.
C. Questions and Answers Post-IVF Treatment
1. What can be done if multiple pregnancy occurs?
Multiple pregnancy can be prevented by reducing the number of embryos to be transferred in women with high chances of pregnancy. In twin pregnancies, no intervention is usually performed. In triplet pregnancies, embryo reduction is recommended.
2. Rest after the transfer is appropriate?
After IVF, it is better to resume normal life instead of resting. It can be returned immediately after transfer to normal activities other than sexual life and sports.
3. Does ectopic pregnancy occur in these treatments?
The probability of ectopic pregnancy is around 1-3 percent. The probability of being both inside and outside the uterus is 0.5 percent. This is called heterotopic pregnancy.
4. Is there any difference between babies born from in vitro fertilization and normal babies?
There are no difference. Only in cases where sperms used in the testis are used for fertilization, some anomalies may increase.
D. Questions and Answers about the ROSI Technique
1. What is the ROSI Technique? What is the difference from a classic tube baby?
In the classical IVF technique, mature sperm cells are collected from the excreted semen sample, the best is selected and introduced into the egg. In the ROSI technique, the classical procedure cannot be performed in men since there are no mature sperm cells in the semen. The round cells extracted from the tissue obtained by TESE method are sent into the oocyte.
2. Who can benefit from the ROSI technique?
People with azoospermia can benefit from the ROSI technique
3. Can the embryo obtained as a result of the ROSI technique be healthy?
Embryos obtained by the ROSI Technique are both fertilized and genetically healthy.
4. How much is the chance of Pregnancp with ROSI Technique?Approximately 10-20 percent pregnancy success and 10 percent live birth success are predicted with
ROSI Technique.
5. Which is Better? Rosi or Normal Birth?
In ROSI technique, there are less chance of pregnancy compared to standard IVF treatment. Furthermore, the miscarriage of ROSI technique is about 30-40 percent.
