What is IVF (In Vitro Fertilization)?

1. IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is an artificial reproductive technique to retrieve oocyte by vaginal ultrasound, select sperms at laboratory, and culture embryos in vitro, then the better embryos will be transfer to uterus, the pregnancy rate of the first IVF in our center is around 45~50%, and it's better than the average pregnancy rate (40%) of other IVF centers around the world.  If we combine laser assisted hatching (LAHA), the pregnancy rate will raise to 50~60%.
2. If you do the IVF treatment for three successful cycles, the pregnancy rate will raise around 90~95%.
3.Ordinary women extrude one oocyte per menstrual cycle, if by ovarian induction; you can get better quality and quantity oocytes. In order to get better oocytes, some medicines will be used in IVF treatment (Ex. Regulation of menstrual cycle, Pituitary inhibitor, and ovarian stimulating agent).
4. Generally, the oocytes for IVF are induced by gonadotropin (ovarian stimulating agent) and the follicle's maturation is observed by vaginal ultrasound, It takes around 4~5 days for follicle's maturation, Oocyte retrieval day is arranged when the follicle's mature. The oocyte retrieval is under vaginal ultrasound guide, through vagina, because it is woundless, and recovery more rapidly.
5. Sperms for IVF must select and purified. First, husband should collect semen in sterilize bottle by masturbation. Then send it to laboratory within 2 hours at room temperature.

6. Laser assisted hatching (LAHA) is a technique to open zona pellucida of embryo's in order to help embryos Implantation.
7. TESA, MESA , and PESA, Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection(ICSI) is a technique to inject single sperm to an oocyte, It's for severe sperm problems or fertilization failure,It's fertilization rate is around 85% as same as IVF, If there are enough oocytes, the pregnancy rate is around 45~50%.If your husband is azoospermia, he must make to testicular operation, if it's normal, he may use fresh semen sample.
8. Cryopreservation of embryos is a technique to stock extra embryos. If this cycle is pregnant, you can thaw the embryos for next time for another baby. If this cycle fails, you can thaw the embryos for the next cycle, the pregnancy rate by cryo-embryos is around 30%, and it is not necessary to receive medicines again. (embryo strorage fee NTD:6,000/per year)
