From our doctors and counsellors to our nurses and laboratory team, we take pride in the quality of our work and the positive impact it has on individuals seeking to become parents.


In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a popular fertility treatment where fertilisation of a woman’s eggs occurs outside the human body. This procedure involves a series of steps to help increase the chances of successful conception.

The first step of the process involves medication to stimulate the woman’s ovaries to produce more eggs than usual. This medication is carefully monitored through blood tests and ultrasound monitoring.

Once the eggs have been collected, they are then placed with the partner’s sperm in the laboratory. This process allows the fertilisation to occur naturally, forming an embryo. The embryos are then closely monitored for two to five days before one of the viable ones is transferred back to the woman’s uterus.

If there are any other viable embryos available, they can be frozen for potential future transfer to the woman. This process not only provides hope for couples struggling with fertility issues but also increases the chances of successful conception.

At our UK Turkey Health clinic, we offer advanced IVF treatments to provide our patients with the highest level of care and support throughout the entire process. Our experienced team of medical professionals will work closely with you to create a tailored treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome.

IVF Step by Step Process

Step 1

Initial Assessment

Before beginning IVF treatment, your reproductive system will undergo evaluation to ensure there are no underlying issues that require surgical repair. Pre-cycling tests, such as sexually transmitted infection screening, thyroid function evaluation, and ovarian reserve testing, will be performed on both partners.

Step 2

Ovarian Stimulation

The process of ovarian stimulation involves medication that induces the development of ovarian follicles and maturation of eggs. Anovulatory women can be treated with ovarian stimulation to induce a regular menstrual cycle.

Step 3

Trigger Shot

The trigger shot is a hormone injection that signals the ovaries to mature and release eggs. It contains human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which triggers egg maturation and prepares them for fertilization.

Step 4

Egg Retrieval and Sperm Collection

Sperm collection for IVF usually occurs before egg retrieval. The man is typically asked to abstain from sexual activity for two to five days before the collection. The sperm is collected through masturbation, and sometimes stress can affect the ability to produce a specimen. Egg retrieval is done using ultrasound-guided needle aspiration.

Step 5

Fertilisation and Embryo Development

The fertilized egg develops into a ball of cells known as a blastocyst, which then implants into the uterine wall, forming the amniotic sac. During this period, the neural tube, which will become the brain and spinal cord, starts to develop.

Step 6

Embryo Transfer

Once the embryo has developed, the embryologist selects which embryos to transfer back to the uterus using a catheter. After the transfer, the patient can resume normal activities, and a pregnancy test will be performed after two weeks.

Step 7

Luteal Phase

The luteal phase is the period that follows ovulation and precedes the start of the menstrual period. The uterus lining thickens in preparation for a possible pregnancy.

Step 8

Pregnancy Test

A blood test is performed 10 to 14 days after egg retrieval to confirm pregnancy. Taking an at-home pregnancy test during IVF treatment is not recommended. If pregnancy is confirmed, additional blood tests and ultrasound will follow to monitor viability and the possibility of multiple pregnancies. After about nine to ten weeks, the patient will be referred to their obstetrician.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should consider IVF treatment?

Nowadays, IVF is the most powerful tool in our hands to help couples who wish to become pregnant. There are certainly some other methods aiming pregnancy. However, most fertility clinics offer IVF to couples who’ve had prior other unsuccessful fertility treatments or ladies after 35 years of age. IVF is for heterosexual couples only since donation of eggs or sperms are not permitted here in Turkey.

Infertile women with tubal problems or Polycystic Ovaries (PCO) are good candidates for IVF. Endometriosis patients also constitute an important portion of our couples. If the main problem is low sperm count and/or motility, we prefer ICSI (Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection) instead of IVF or even use micro-TESE (Testicular Sperm Extraction) to find the healthy sperms if necessary. ICSI is the technique where embryologists place the most viable sperms directly into the woman’s eggs.

Sometimes, no specific cause of infertility can be identified, then, the couple is diagnosed with unexplained infertility. These couples are also good candidates if other methods like intrauterine insemination haven’t worked well before.

What is the age limit for IVF treatment?

There is no strict age limit in Turkey. Most clinics do an individual evaluation based on various investigative tests. However, it is well known that the success rate drops to very low levels after 45 years of age.

Who is a suitable candidate for IVF treatment?

IVF is a popular choice for couples struggling with infertility. While there are other methods available, most fertility clinics recommend IVF for couples who have had previous unsuccessful fertility treatments or for women over the age of 35. It’s worth noting that IVF is only available for heterosexual couples, as egg and sperm donation is not permitted in Turkey.

Women with tubal problems, Polycystic Ovaries (PCO), or endometriosis can benefit from IVF, and if the primary problem is low sperm count or motility, ICSI or micro-TESE may be recommended. ICSI is a technique where embryologists place the most viable sperm directly into the woman’s eggs.

If the cause of infertility is unknown, couples with unexplained infertility can also consider IVF if other methods, such as intrauterine insemination, haven’t worked well.

Is there an age limit for IVF treatment?

There is no strict age limit for IVF treatment in Turkey. Instead, most clinics evaluate each patient’s individual needs based on various investigative tests. However, it is widely known that the success rate drops significantly after the age of 45.

What is the success rate of IVF?

The success rate of IVF depends mainly on the female’s age and other medical conditions. Generally, the success rate is above 50 percent if the woman is younger than 36 years old. For women aged 44 or over, the success rate is five percent or lower. It’s important to remember that these are general statistics and individual differences may play a significant role. It’s always best to have an individual evaluation to determine your specific needs.

How many eggs are needed for IVF?

There is no guarantee on the number of eggs that can be retrieved during an egg collection. Typically, the aim is to retrieve all viable eggs. According to studies, the highest success rates are achieved when 10 to 15 eggs are collected. However, successful treatment is not only dependent on the number of eggs retrieved, but also on the quality of the eggs.

Can single women receive IVF treatment?

Unfortunately, Turkish legislation does not permit the treatment of single women, as egg and sperm donation is not legal.

Why do some foreign couples choose IVF treatment in Turkey?

Many couples may need more than one IVF treatment to become pregnant. However, IVF can be very expensive in the US, UK, and most European countries, making it difficult for couples to afford more than one fresh attempt. Couples who choose to have IVF treatment in Turkey can have up to three fresh attempts for the same price as one attempt in the UK or US, reducing financial stress and providing a sense of security.

How many IVF cycles will I need?

According to statistics, eight out of ten couples will have a child within three attempts. While we strive to achieve pregnancy during the first trial, it’s important to remember that many couples hold their babies after repeated IVF attempts. A good individual treatment plan is key to success, as every couple has unique needs that should be carefully evaluated and addressed in a tailored treatment plan.
