What is IVF or In Vitro Fertilization?

In vitro fertilization ( IVF ) is a process of fertilization where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body which is named “in vitro” or “in glass”.

The process of IVF involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulation process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries, and letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid environment in a laboratory.

After the fertilized egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.


IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. The procedure can be done using your own eggs and your partner’s sperm. Or IVF may involve eggs, sperm, or embryos from a known or anonymous donor. In some cases, a gestational carrier — a woman who has an embryo implanted in her uterus — might be used.

Your chances of having a healthy baby using IVF depend on many factors, such as your age and the cause of infertility. In addition, IVF can be time-consuming, expensive, and invasive. If more than one embryo is implanted in your uterus, IVF can result in a pregnancy with more than one fetus (multiple pregnancies).

The highest quality and affordable cost of infertility treatment in Iran encourage many foreign patients to seek treatment in Iran.

About 5 to 10 percent of total patients referring to Iran’s infertility treatment centers are from overseas countries.

Referring to the country’s standing in the world in the field of infertility treatment, Iranian specialists are well aware of all modern methods being applied for treating infertility.

All facilities and equipment required for treating infertility are available in Iran, pointing out that more than 100 infertility treatment centers operate nationwide, of which 30 percent are state-owned.

First Iran’s infertility treatment center was inaugurated in the city of Yazd in March 1990, adding the second Infertility Treatment Center was launched in March 1992.

Our doctors are carefully and exhaustively vetted to guarantee the highest medical standards to all our patients.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), infertility is a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of trying.

Infertility affects an estimated 20.4 % of couples globally.

The figure will drop to 12.4 percent after two years of trying, adding it shows that many infertile couples can have a baby if they keep trying.

Couples aged 35 years and above are not recommended to use the method because any delay in childbearing would aggravate their infertility problems.


Iranian couples no longer need to travel abroad for consultation or treatment for infertility as advanced methods of treatment for couples who have problems conceiving, are available in the country.

There are 3 million infertile couples in the country.  Around 3-4% of young Iranian women suffer from recurrent miscarriages. The infertility rate is about 2.5% and secondary infertility is more prevalent than primary infertility. When a woman is not able to conceive at all, (due to infertility in either spouse), it is referred to as primary fertility. Secondary infertility is when a woman is unable to conceive again after the first successful pregnancy and childbirth. While causes of secondary infertility vary, the most important risk factors are advanced reproductive age, weight gain, abdominal surgeries, sperm quality and quantity, and smoking.

Microsurgical reconstruction for male infertility, new methods of male infertility treatment (medication, surgery, and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)), the role of complementary therapies and medicines to improve fertility, and new imaging techniques for assessment of infertility problems in both genders, are among the main important topics that will be discussed.

Today, there are 80 infertility centers across the country and 20 more will be launched by the end of the current year.

ivf in iran

Additionally, 35 state-run universities of medical sciences have been equipped with new laboratory equipment and devices for the identification and treatment of infertility problems.

IVF is never the first step in the treatment of infertility. Instead, it’s reserved for cases in which other methods such as fertility drugs, surgery, and artificial insemination haven’t worked.

On average, an IVF cycle costs between 1800$ to 2500$ in the country, while the majority of women have per-cycle success rates of 20-35%, which means they may need multiple tries to get pregnant.

IVF may be an option if one of the spouses or both has been diagnosed with problems like endometriosis, low sperm count, problems with ovulation, antibody problems that harm sperms or eggs, and unexplained fertility problems.

 IVF cost along with medical care quality are important factors for couples to choose their medical travel destination.

Many couples are not able to treat their infertility problem due to their poor financial state. In these conditions, high-quality fertility centers along with affordable costs are golden opportunities.

In this article, we discuss the factors affecting IVF cost and IVF cost comparison in Iran and other countries.

Which Factors Affect IVF Cost?

IVF is an infertility treatment technique. IVF cost depends on many factors.

In IVF, laboratory fertilization is used to make an embryo and transfer the embryo to the uterus. The first step is to determine the infertility cause and the treatment plan will be set in accordance with your infertility reason.

Treatment plans include egg donation, sperm donation, surrogacy, etc.

Generally, IVF cost depends on many factors such as:

  • Fertility clinic’s quality
  • Pre-IVF prescription drugs like sexual enhancement drugs
  • Fertility specialist’s experience
  • Donated egg or donated sperm price
  • Embryo transfer costs
  • Pregnancy period costs
  • Childbirth costs
  • Other costs.
ivf in iran

There is a wrong belief that “expensive centers have better results”. In fact, there is no meaningful relationship between the success rate of IVF and IVF costs. The specialist’s experience and the couple’s general and mental condition are the main reasons that affect the IVF success rate. Anyway, if you have made your decision to do IVF for your infertility treatment, you may encounter these questions:

  • How much does IVF cost?
  • Where is the best destination for IVF regarding my financial state?
  • Is Iran a good destination for IVF?
  • What are the pros and cons of IVF in Iran?
  • How much do accommodation and travel cost in Iran?
  • Is it cost-effective for me or not?


IVF Cost in Iran

Due to the latest Iran currency devaluation, now high-quality medical services are available at much affordable prices. Iran has a good ranking in the world in total medical science, especially in infertility treatments. The success rate of IVF in Iran is higher than the world average. The average IVF cost in Iran is as affordable as 1,800-2,500$ for one total IVF cycle.

Infertility Treatment

As medical science has been advancing substantially, the infertility treatment success rate increased over years. Many men and women with fertility problems have been treated successfully through well-known and reliable methods verified by infertility specialists.  Actually, with the current state of infertility treatment, there is absolutely no fertility problem that is not curable through existing methods. Iran is one of the pioneers in treating infertility for men and women. To learn more about these methods, some of the main approaches to infertility treatment are explained below.

Summary of Common Methods of Infertility Treatment

Given the main cause of infertility, there are various options to treat fertility problems. Treatment usually begins with methods with the lowest risk and in case of lack of progress, other methods would be applied.

  • Medication:

In some cases, infertility is caused by disorderliness of hormonal balance or reduction of hormonal storage. In these situations, treatment would be sought through medication. Taking fertility medicines can effectively improve the function of reproductive organs in men and women. Even on some occasions when the cause of infertility is unknown, it is possible to achieve natural fertilization by taking medication.

Another treatment for infertility is intrauterine insemination or IUI.

This method involves placing sperm samples inside a woman’s uterus helping sperm to reach fallopian tubes thus increasing the chance of fertilization.

This method is applied when sperm is unable to reach the eggs.

  • Surgery

Another approach to infertility treatment is laparoscopy or other extensive abdominal operations. This approach is pursued when infertility is caused by blocked fallopian tubes or diseases such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, or anatomical problems in the genitals.

  • Assisted reproduction techniques

In cases where infertility is caused by low sperm count or blocked fallopian tubes, the treatment is very exceptional. It’s called In Vitro Fertilization or IVF.

IVF is used only when other treatments proved to be ineffective.

In this method, an infertility specialist collects sperm and egg and unites them in a laboratory using advanced equipment, a process that naturally occurs inside fallopian tubes.

IVF is one of the prevailing methods for infertility treatment and assisted reproduction techniques.

Best Methods of Infertility Treatment

Nowadays due to advances in medical sciences and various methods for infertility treatment, the joy of having a child is within the reach of almost anybody. Medical treatments along with assisted reproduction techniques have improved the chance for many men and women with infertility problems to have children. This article gives you useful information about prominent methods of infertility treatment.

After various diagnostic tests, different methods of infertility treatment will be applied in accordance with the cause of infertility. After explaining each method and its success rate, the doctor provides the couple with different treatment options to choose the one that suits them the most regarding their situation and preferences.

There are various methods to treat infertility including:


IVF is a prevalent method to treat infertility problems and consists of a complex series of procedures. During IVF, after stimulating ovaries and ovulation, mature eggs are retrieved from ovaries and fertilized by sperm outside the uterus in a lab. After the conception of an embryo in the lab, the embryo is then placed inside the uterus.

This method is usually offered in conditions where sperm can’t reach the egg naturally, such as blocked fallopian tubes, pelvic adhesions, low sperm count, or low sperm mobility.

During intrauterine insemination or IUI which is a simple and painless procedure to facilitate fertilization, the sperm is placed inside the uterus.

For IUI, the fallopian tubes need to be healthy. In this method, the egg is not retrieved from the ovaries and the process of ovulation and conception occurs naturally.

  • Ovulation Stimulation by advanced protocols:

Ovulation stimulation is helpful for women with irregular ovulation, ovulation disorder, or polycystic ovary (PCO) and is mostly used to increase the quantity and quality of eggs and boost the chance of fertilization. There are medications that induce the same effect on egg quality and quantity which are known as ovulation induction medicine.

Microinjection is an infertility treatment method in which a sperm cell is injected directly into the cytoplasm of an egg and cultivated for a specific period of time in an incubator. After conception and cell division, the embryo is made.

With IVM, instead of increasing follicle growth in the body (metaphase 2), immature eggs are extracted from ovaries using vaginal sonography.

Afterward, extracted eggs are grown in a laboratory and fertilized before being replaced in the womb.

  • Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer or GIFT:

GIFT method is mostly used in cases of the surrogate womb and is similar to IVF in terms of egg retrieving and sperm preparation. Afterward, the egg along with an adequate amount of sperm are placed directly into the fallopian tubes using a laparoscope.

IVF Procedure Step by Step

  • Preliminary Sonography or Ultrasound Radiologic Evaluation

The preliminary sonography is aimed at examining the condition of the uterus for fertilization. Sonography provides information about the condition of ovaries, follicles, and the blood flow to ovaries.

  • Secondary Sonography

On the fifth day of the menstruation cycle, another sonography is done. During this sonography, the growth of follicles and the thickness of the endometrium are examined. The growth of follicles eventually causes ovulation and estrogen production. At this time in order to examine the estrogen in serum, two blood tests will be done. At this stage, your doctor might consider applying some technologically advanced techniques such as hysteroscopy which can increase the success rate of IVF significantly according to scientific studies.

  • IVF Procedure Preparation

Before commencing the IVF procedure, in case you have irregular menstruation cycles your doctor prescribes progesterone.  After 6 days of taking progesterone, some doctors might prescribe medications to induce ovulation.

  • Proceeding with IVF

IVF procedure starts with menstruation and on the second day of the period, blood tests and vaginal sonography is done.

Sonography is aimed at examining the size of follicles and the blood test is to determine the level of estrogen and estradiol.

  • Testing and Stimulating the Ovaries

At this stage, ovaries are stimulated by fertility drugs. Usually, these drugs are injectable and you need to have one to four injections a day for a period of seven to 10 days. These drugs help ovary stimulation and control the growth of oocytes (immature eggs).

  • Oocyte Maturation

At this stage, HCG is injected. The timely injection of HSG is very important. If HCG is injected prematurely egg would not become completely mature and in case of postponing the injection, the egg would become too mature. Normally HCG is injected when the size of the follicle has reached 18 to 20 millimeters and the level of estrogen has reached over 2000 pg/ml.

Additive Description of In Vitro Fertilization IVF

In vitro fertilization or IVF is one of the infertility treatments that help patients to fertilize and reduces the risk of genetic disorders in newborns.  During IVF, mature eggs are extracted from ovaries and manually fertilized by retrieved sperm samples in a laboratory. The fertilized egg or embryo is placed inside the uterus to increase the chance of pregnancy.

The full cycle of IVF takes about three to four weeks. The IVF procedure could be performed by using the couple’s own egg and sperm or it could involve using eggs and/or sperm from a donor. In some rare cases, the IVF procedure may require a surrogate uterus for the embryo to be transferred into.

The success rate of IVF depends on various factors including the age of the couple undergoing the procedure and the cause of infertility. IVF treatment is time-consuming and expensive but also is a proper procedure that greatly increases the success rate of pregnancy.

Why it’s done

Sometimes, IVF is offered as a primary treatment for infertility in women over age 40. IVF can also be done if you have certain health conditions. For example, IVF may be an option if you or your partner has:

  • Fallopian tube damage or blockage.

    Fallopian tube damage or blockage makes it difficult for an egg to be fertilized or for an embryo to travel to the uterus.

  • Ovulation disorders.

    If ovulation is infrequent or absent, fewer eggs are available for fertilization.

IVF e1596009263808
  • Premature ovarian failure.

    Premature ovarian failure is the loss of normal ovarian function before age 40. If your ovaries fail, they don’t produce normal amounts of the hormone estrogen or have eggs to release regularly.

  • Endometriosis.

    Endometriosis occurs when the uterine tissue implants and grows outside of the uterus — often affecting the function of the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes.

  • Uterine fibroids.

    Fibroids are benign tumors in the wall of the uterus and are common in women in their 30s and 40s. Fibroids can interfere with the implantation of the fertilized egg.

  • Previous tubal sterilization or removal.

    If you’ve had a tubal ligation — a type of sterilization in which your fallopian tubes are cut or blocked to permanently prevent pregnancy — and want to conceive, IVF may be an alternative to tubal ligation reversal.

  • Impaired sperm production or function.

    Below-average sperm concentration, weak movement of sperm (poor mobility), or abnormalities in sperm size and shape can make it difficult for sperm to fertilize an egg. If semen abnormalities are found, your partner might need to see a specialist determine if there are correctable problems or underlying health concerns.

  • Unexplained infertility.

    Unexplained infertility means no cause of infertility has been found despite evaluation for common causes.

  • A genetic disorder.

    If you or your partner is at risk of passing on a genetic disorder to your child, you may be a candidate for preimplantation genetic diagnosis — a procedure that involves IVF. After the eggs are harvested and fertilized, they’re screened for certain genetic problems, although not all genetic problems can be found. Embryos that don’t contain identified problems can be transferred to the uterus.

  • Fertility preservation for cancer or other health conditions.

    If you’re about to start cancer treatment — such as radiation or chemotherapy — that could harm your fertility, IVF for fertility preservation may be an option. Women can have eggs harvested from their ovaries and frozen in an unfertilized state for later use. Or the eggs can be fertilized and frozen as embryos for future use. Women who don’t have a functional uterus or for whom pregnancy poses a serious health risk might choose IVF using another person to carry the pregnancy (gestational carrier). In this case, the woman’s eggs are fertilized with sperm, but the resulting embryos are placed in the gestational carrier’s uterus.

What Age is Good for IVF?

As we have gotten ourselves settled in the 21st century, innovation has led and gone into all amazing parts, one of these innovations is IVF.

On account of the development of science and the devoted consideration of science towards proliferation, there’s currently more than one approach for having youngsters. We advise you to consider this method.

Planned impregnation, Surrogacy, IVF, Cytoplasmic exchange, Atomic exchange, and Cloning are a portion of the manners in which an individual can have babies now.

One of the most well-known techniques among these infertility treatment solutions is IVF.

In Vitro Fertilization is a stride in front of managed impregnation. In this technique, the eggs and sperms are taken from Male and Females and converged into a dish, where they are treated. The created incipient organisms are put in the uterus of the lady.

There are various components that become an integral factor when you choose IVF treatment. From the way of life decisions to the explanations behind fruitlessness, everything matters. A key point in IVF success rate is played by the age of the lady who will conceive the infant.

In the US, the maximum age for a recipient who wishes to transfer the infant into her uterus is 50 years, and the age for GIFT is 45 years. Patients who have frozen their eggs can have an embryo transfer up to their 52nd birthday.

The Right Age for IVF

Ladies in their 20s and 30s experience the best IVF success rate.

This is a result of the practicality of the eggs, which encourages normal treatment.

Helped conceptive innovation obliges a wide range of treatment of fruitlessness. The regenerative organs of both male and female accomplices are exposed to a characteristic pass with developing age.

Ladies in their 20s and mid-30s have the most accomplishment with pregnancies and single live births. Nonetheless, achievement rates declined consistently once a lady contacted her mid-30s.

This is an update that age stays an essential factor concerning pregnancy achievement and more youthful ladies have more noteworthy accomplishments than more established ladies, even with innovation.

According to the examination, more than 290 richness facilities, 37% of ladies under age 35 had effective IVF implantation. The number diminished to 31% for ladies who have matured 35-37. Further, just 21% of ladies from the age of 38-40 could do counterfeit pregnancy. The number dropped to 11% among ladies aged 41-42, and it just stayed at 4% for ladies over the time of 42%.

Thus, the normal achievement pace of IVF pregnancy is 27%. Out of which, ladies younger than 35 are well on the way to having positive results.

There has been some adjustment in the common furthest reaches of generation for ladies. With the assistance of hormonal medicines and gifts, ladies who have accomplished menopause can likewise seek after pregnancy.

The bleakness of the baby increments with the age of the mother, and subsequently, the patient must be made mindful of the apparent multitude of dangers associated with mature age pregnancy.

The Iranian Board of Clinical Exploration (ICMR) explains that the lady conveying the infant ought to be a sound lady (controlled by clinical and mental assessment) having ordinary genitalia (as dictated by physical assessment) and uterine hole (as dictated by hysterosalpingography).

According to the rules of the Service of Wellbeing, Legislature of Iran, with regards to gathering of given incipient organisms, there is no upper age limit for IVF in Iran. Yet, the 2017 ICMR bill for Helped Regenerative Innovation has proposed the upper age limit for ladies to 49.

IVF and egg donation is a gold standard technique for infertility treatment.

Many couples suffer from infertility problems over the world. Many factors may result in infertility including male or female fertilization problems.

First of all, the reason for the infertility of the couples should be recognized. If the wife could not produce effective ovums (eggs), the best treatment is IVF and egg donation.



Infertility Treatment by IVF and Egg Donation

One of the prevalent causes of infertility in women is producing an inefficient ovum (egg) that could not involve in fertilization properly due to genetic or acquired disorders. In this case, IVF and egg donation is the best treatment choice.

IVF and egg donation will be the choice treatment method if the woman does not respond to medications and other treatments, for example, due to elder age, early menopause, hormonal imbalance, or ovarian diseases, despite healthy fertilization anatomy.

In this case, the soul treatment method will be egg donation from a volunteer donor.

In IVF and egg donation, the donated egg will be fertilized in a laboratory environment with the man’s sperm and the embryo (fetus) will be transferred to the mother’s uterine.

IVF and egg donation is the most prevalent and appropriate method for infertile women with a high success rate.

Requirements for IVF and Egg Donation

  • The maximum age for IVF and egg donation is 48 years old. At elder ages, the abortion risk will increase and the woman should be under precise observation.
  • Before performing IVF and egg donation, the couple’s health should be evaluated by careful physical and laboratory tests.
  • The acceptable age of the egg donor is 21-34 years old.
  • Physical characteristics of the donor and recipient had better be similar like eye color, skin type, and hair color
  • The egg donor should be screened for genetic disorders and infectious diseases like hepatitis, HIV, syphilis, etc.

Egg donation is performed by fresh egg or frozen egg. The success rate is approximately equal in both techniques. The duration of the IVF and egg donation cycle for a fresh egg is 2-3 months while IVF and egg donation cycle for a frozen egg is 1-1.5 months.

The Chances of Successful IVF Pregnancy

Ovulation induction

If you’re using your own eggs during IVF, at the start of a cycle you’ll begin treatment with synthetic hormones to stimulate your ovaries to produce multiple eggs — rather than the single egg that normally develops each month. Multiple eggs are needed because some eggs won’t fertilize or develop normally after fertilization.

You may need several different medications, such as:

  • Medications for ovarian stimulation. To stimulate your ovaries, you might receive an injectable medication containing a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), a luteinizing hormone (LH), or a combination of both. These medications stimulate more than one egg to develop at a time.
  • Medications for oocyte maturation. When the follicles are ready for egg retrieval — generally after eight to 14 days — you will take human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) or other medications to help the eggs mature.
  • Medications to prevent premature ovulation. These medications prevent your body from releasing the developing eggs too soon.
  • Medications to prepare the lining of your uterus. On the day of egg retrieval or at the time of embryo transfer, your doctor might recommend that you begin taking progesterone supplements to make the lining of your uterus more receptive to implantation.

Your doctor will work with you to determine which medications to use and when to use them.

Typically, you’ll need one to two weeks of ovarian stimulation before your eggs are ready for retrieval. To determine when the eggs are ready for collection, your doctor will likely perform:

  • A vaginal ultrasound, an imaging exam of your ovaries to monitor the development of follicles — fluid-filled ovarian sacs where eggs mature
  • Blood tests, to measure your response to ovarian stimulation medications — estrogen levels typically increase as follicles develop and progesterone levels remain low until after ovulation

Sometimes IVF cycles need to be canceled before egg retrieval for one of these reasons:

  • Inadequate number of follicles developing
  • Premature ovulation
  • Too many follicles developing, creating a risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
  • Other medical issues

Tips to improve egg quality for IVF

Ladies frequently inquire as to whether there is a characteristic or “at a home solution” to boost egg quality for IVF and improve infertility and the progressions of pregnancy.

In this paragraph, we explain what you can do to guarantee that your eggs are as well as can be expected while getting ready for origination. There are some important tips that you can use to improve egg quality for IVF and we are going to explain them one by one.

Egg Donation

Principal points to enhance egg quality for IVF

1. Avoid Cigarettes.

Smoking speeds up egg misfortune in the ovaries. The synthetic compounds in cigarettes transform the DNA in a lady’s egg cells, making a portion of the eggs unsatisfactory for origination. Ladies are brought into the world with all the eggs they will actually have, and the quantity of eggs lessens with age, so it is ideal to keep eggs solid and liberated from pointless synthetic concoctions.

2. Oversee Stress.

Stress can deliver hormones, for example, cortisol and prolactin that can meddle with or end ovulation, which additionally prevents egg creation. Stress-lessening exercises, for example, yoga, reflection, practice or a steaming shower can assist keep with focusing and dissatisfaction under control.

3. Practice good eating habits.

Sound nourishments improve generally speaking wellbeing, this incorporates helping your eggs remain solid and high caliber, just as improve by and large ripeness. Eat a lot of verdant greens, entire grains, lean meats, nuts, new vegetables, and organic products. Avoid TRANS fats, refined carbs, prepared nourishments or meats, and inordinate salt and sugar.

4. Accomplish a Normal BMI (weight score).

Corpulence has been connected to the diminished richness and diminished egg quality for IVF because of modifications of mitochondrial work and expanded oxidative pressure. Being overweight can likewise change hormonal parity, upsetting ovulation. A weight record (BMI) between18.5-24.9 is prescribed to accomplish pregnancy. To give you a thought of what that resembles, a lady that is 5’6″ falls inside an ordinary BMI with a weight scope of 115-154 lbs.

5. Increase Blood oxygen flow.

Great egg well-being is supported by an oxygen-rich bloodstream in the ovaries. Bloodstream in the body can rapidly diminish from lack of hydration, so expect to drink 64 oz. of water every day. Yoga is a solid and loosening up approach to improve the bloodstream, with postures, for example, the lotus represents, a youngster’s posture, leaning back legend and situated ahead twist offering a particular fruitfulness advantage.

6. Put resources into Supplements.

No compelling reason to burn up all available resources on nutrients, yet there are three minimal effort choices that can help with egg wellbeing: Coenzyme Q10, melatonin, and fish oil. CoQ10 can support mitochondrial work just as cancer prevention agents, improving the nature of eggs (200 mg, 3x day by day); melatonin can help cell reinforcements, energize ovarian capacity and help in rest (3mg each night); and fish oil (EPA/DHA) can help produce better eggs and help regenerative capacity in cutting edge maternal age (1200-1500mg EPA + DHA day by day, don’t surpass 3000 mg/day).

7 . Freeze Your Eggs.

On the off chance that you are anticipating deferring parenthood, the most ideal approach to secure your rich future is to stop your natural clock and freeze your eggs. With time, a lady’s regular ripeness decreases, however, solidified eggs continue as before organic age as when they are cryopreserved, boosting your odds of future achievement and enhancing egg quality for IVF.

Nowadays, the sexuality of infants is important for many parents. It’s possible to determine the gender of your child by IVF and sex selection by PGD methods. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure used prior to implantation to determine probable genetic disorders and the gender of a child. This technique is done in high-tech laboratories by embryologists.

What is IVF and sex selection by PGD technique?

IVF and PGD is a scientific methods used to determine the gender of your child, as you desire.

Today, the development of scientific and laboratory techniques has facilitated the determination of the gender of your child preimplantation in the uterus.

IVF and the sex selection process by PGD are done in scientific fertility clinics by infertility treatment specialists and embryologists, despite some moral and religious opposition.

IVF and sex selection by PGD have been approved by the health ministry and religious centers in Iran and are done frequently.

IVF and the sex selection process are performed in infertility clinics by PGD technique.

In this technique, the ovum (egg) fertilize by the sperm in a laboratory environment.

On the 3rd or 5th day after fertilization and cell division, some eggs (embryos) will be selected for a genetic test or sex selection.

Here we will explain IVF and sex selection by PGD technique and the advantages and disadvantages of IVF and sex selection by PGD.

Selected eggs are used to determine gender and probable chromosomal disorders of the embryo. This technique is also useful to prevent chromosomal disorders like Down syndrome.

What is the benefit of IVF and sex selection by PGD?

IVF and sex selection by PGD will determine the gender of your infant with a high success rate (96-99%). IVF and sex selection by PGD will prevent genetic and chromosomal disorder transmission from parents to the child.

In some types of genetic disorders, called x-related genetic disorders, the father or mother or both transfer special genetic diseases to their child. In these x-related genetic diseases, IVF and sex selection by PGD will be useful.

After IVF and sex selection by PGD, parents could decide whether to give birth to the affected child or not. So they could prevent the transmission of the familial genetic disease to the next generations.

IVF success rate:

What is the IVF success rate in Iran?

IVF success rate is an important point you should notice before performing IVF.

IVF is an infertility treatment technique for infertile couples with an appropriate and high success rate in Iran compared to other countries.

What is the IVF success rate in Iran compared to other countries?

Fortunately, Iran has a lot of experience in infertility treatment science with a high IVF success rate compared to countries all over the world and many patients travel to Iran to treat their infertility problems every year.

To evaluate IVF success rate, patients are divided into 2 groups: women aged less than 35 years old and women aged more than 35 years old.

The success rate of IVF in the first group (women <35 y/o) is approximately 40 % and the success rate of IVF in the second group (women > 35 y/o) is 15- 20% on average.

IVF success rate differs in fertility clinics and centers depending on many factors.

IVF success rate in Iran is equal to or more than global statistics.

IVF in Iran has affordable costs which makes Iran an attractive destination for infertility treatment and medical travelers.

High medical care experiences along with fair prices highlight Iran as a leading destination for infertility treatment all over the world.

What affects IVF success rate?

IVF is a technique to treat infertility problems such as sperm count, shape or motility problems, or insufficient egg production.

IVF is done in a special laboratory environment and many factors affect IVF success rate which are mentioned below:

  • Age:

The first and most important factor affecting the success rate of IVF is age. The older you get, the lower your chance of successful IVF. In younger people, the chance of access to fresh and young eggs and sperm is higher.

  • Previous successful pregnancy:

If you had a successful pregnancy previously, the success rate of IVF is more for you compared to others.

  • The reason for infertility:

Infertility reason affects the IVF success rate. IVF success rate decreases in some infertility causes.

  • Donated egg quality:

If the woman has an ovulation problem, the solution is using donated eggs.

Young and fresh eggs have more success rate.

  • Lifestyle:

Some daily habits have a negative impression on IVF success rate including smoking, obesity, high daily stress, etc.

  • Infertility clinic quality:

Experienced fertility specialists and embryologists along with high-tech laboratory equipment will increase the IVF success rate to a great extent.

Iran is an attractive destination for IVF & infertility treatment regarding all the positive points we explained.

IVF Risks:

Specific steps of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle carry risks, including:

  • Multiple births. IVF increases the risk of multiple births if more than one embryo is implanted in your uterus. A pregnancy with multiple fetuses carries a higher risk of early labor and low birth weight than a pregnancy with a single fetus does.
  • Premature delivery and low birth weight. Research suggests that the use of IVF slightly increases the risk that a baby will be born early or with low birth weight.
  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. The use of injectable fertility drugs, such as human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), to induce ovulation can cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, in which your ovaries become swollen and painful. Signs and symptoms typically last a week and include mild abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If you become pregnant, however, your symptoms might last several weeks. Rarely, it’s possible to develop a more severe form of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome that can also cause rapid weight gain and shortness of breath.
  • Miscarriage. The rate of miscarriage for women who conceive using IVF with fresh embryos is similar to that of women who conceive naturally — about 15 to 25 percent — but the rate increases with maternal age. The use of frozen embryos during IVF, however, may slightly increase the risk of miscarriage.
  • Egg-retrieval procedure complications. The use of an aspirating needle to collect eggs could possibly cause bleeding, infection, or damage to the bowel, bladder, or blood vessel. Risks are also associated with using general anesthesia.
  • Ectopic pregnancy. About 2 to 5 percent of women who use IVF will have an ectopic pregnancy — when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. The fertilized egg can’t survive outside the uterus, and there’s no way to continue the pregnancy.
  • Birth defects. The age of the mother is the primary risk factor in the development of birth defects, no matter how the child is conceived. More research is needed to determine whether babies conceived using IVF might be at increased risk of certain birth defects. Some experts believe that the use of IVF does not increase the risk of having a baby with birth defects.
  • Ovarian cancer. Although some early studies suggested there may be a link between certain medications used to stimulate egg growth and the development of a specific type of ovarian tumor, more recent studies do not support these findings.
  • Stress. The use of IVF can be financial, physically, and emotionally draining. Support from counselors, family, and friends can help you and your partner through the ups and downs of infertility treatment.

Preparation for IVF:

When choosing an in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinic, keep in mind that a clinic’s success rate depends on many factors, such as patients’ ages and medical issues, as well as the clinic’s treatment population and treatment approaches. Ask for detailed information about the costs associated with each step of the procedure.

Before beginning a cycle of IVF using your own eggs and sperm, you and your partner will likely need various screenings, including:

  • Ovarian reserve testing. To determine the quantity and quality of your eggs, your doctor might test the concentration of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol (estrogen), and antimullerian hormone in your blood during the first few days of your menstrual cycle. Test results often used together with an ultrasound of your ovaries, can help predict how your ovaries will respond to fertility medication.
  • Semen analysis. If not done as part of your initial fertility evaluation, your doctor will conduct a semen analysis shortly before the start of an IVF treatment cycle.
  • Infectious disease screening. You and your partner will both be screened for infectious diseases, including HIV.
  • Practice (mock) embryo transfer. Your doctor might conduct a mock embryo transfer to determine the depth of your uterine cavity and the technique most likely to successfully place the embryos into your uterus.
  • Uterine cavity exam. Your doctor will examine your uterine cavity before you start IVF. This might involve a sonohysterography — in which fluid is injected through the cervix into your uterus — and an ultrasound to create images of your uterine cavity. Or it might include a hysteroscopy — in which a thin, flexible, lighted telescope (hysteroscope) is inserted through your vagina and cervix into your uterus.

After the procedure of IVF

After the embryo transfer, you can resume your normal daily activities. However, your ovaries may still be enlarged. Consider avoiding vigorous activity, which could cause discomfort.

Typical side effects include:

  • Passing a small amount of clear or bloody fluid shortly after the procedure — due to the swabbing of the cervix before the embryo transfer
  • Breast tenderness due to high estrogen levels
  • Mild bloating
  • Mild cramping
  • Constipation

If you develop moderate or severe pain after the embryo transfer, contact your doctor. He or she will evaluate you for complications such as infection, twisting of an ovary (ovarian torsion), and severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

About 12 days to two weeks after egg retrieval, your doctor will test a sample of your blood to detect whether you’re pregnant.

  • If you’re pregnant, your doctor will refer you to an obstetrician or another pregnancy specialist for prenatal care.
  • If you’re not pregnant, you’ll stop taking progesterone and likely get your period within a week. If you don’t get your period or you have unusual bleeding, contact your doctor. If you’re interested in attempting another cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF), your doctor might suggest steps you can take to improve your chances of getting pregnant through IVF.

The chances of giving birth to a healthy baby after using IVF depend on various factors, including:

  • Maternal age. The younger you are, the more likely you are to get pregnant and give birth to a healthy baby using your own eggs during IVF. Women age 41 and older are often counseled to consider using donor eggs during IVF to increase the chances of success.
  • Embryo status. Transfer of embryos that are more developed is associated with higher pregnancy rates compared with less developed embryos (day two or three). However, not all embryos survive the development process. Talk with your doctor or another care provider about your specific situation.
  • Reproductive history. Women who’ve previously given birth are more likely to be able to get pregnant using IVF than are women who’ve never given birth. Success rates are lower for women who’ve previously used IVF multiple times but didn’t get pregnant.
  • Cause of infertility. Having a normal supply of eggs increases your chances of being able to get pregnant using IVF. Women who have severe endometriosis are less likely to be able to get pregnant using IVF than are women who have unexplained infertility(more…).
  • Lifestyle factors. Women who smoke typically have fewer eggs retrieved during IVF and may miscarry more often. Smoking can lower a woman’s chance of success using IVF by 50 percent. Obesity can decrease your chances of getting pregnant and having a baby. The use of alcohol, recreational drugs, excessive caffeine, and certain medications also can be harmful.

Talk with our doctors about any factors that apply to you and how they may affect your chances of a successful pregnancy.

IVF Frequently asked questions

How many embryos will be transferred?

The number of embryos transferred is typically based on the age and number of eggs retrieved. Since the rate of implantation is lower for older women, more embryos are usually transferred — except for women using donor eggs. Most doctors follow specific guidelines to prevent a higher order of multiple pregnancies — triplets or more — and in some countries, legislation limits the number of embryos that can be transferred at once. Make sure you and your doctor agree on the number of embryos that will be transferred before the transfer procedure.

What will you do with any extra embryos?

Extra embryos can be frozen and stored for future use for several years. Not all embryos will survive the freezing and thawing process, although most will. Cryopreservation can make future cycles of IVF less expensive and less invasive. However, the live birth rate from frozen embryos is slightly lower than the live birth rate from fresh embryos. Or, you might be able to donate unused frozen embryos to another couple or a research facility. You might also choose to discard unused embryos.

How will you handle multiple pregnancies?

If more than one embryo is transferred to your uterus, IVF can result in multiple pregnancies — which poses health risks for you and your babies. In some cases, a fetal reduction can be used to help a woman deliver fewer babies with lower health risks. Pursuing fetal reduction, however, is a major decision with ethical, emotional, and psychological consequences.

Have you considered the potential complications associated with using donor eggs, sperm, embryos, or a gestational carrier?

A trained counselor with expertise in donor issues can help you understand the concerns, such as the legal rights of the donor. You also may need an attorney to file court papers to help you become legal parents of an implanted embryo.

Why IVF is done?

In vitro fertilization or IVF is a relatively invasive procedure recommended for those who were unsuccessful with other less invasive treatments such as medication. IVF is considered a primary treatment for women over age 40. IVF can also be done when you have some specific health conditions, such as:

  • Fallopian tube damage or blockage
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Previous tubal sterilization or removal
  • Impaired sperm production or function
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Preventing genetic disorders from being transmitted to the child (PGD)
  • Fertility preservation in cancer treatments or other health conditions

Is Iran a good destination for IVF for international medical travelers?

IVF is the most widely recognized infertility treatment used to help couples who are attempting to have a child normally.

What is implied by this treatment? IVF represents in vitro treatment. This term depicts the strategy wherein the preparation of a lady’s egg by a man’s sperm is done “in glass” (in vitro) in a research facility. It is one of the various progressed clinical systems known as helped conceptive advancements (Craftsmanship).

What is an IVF cycle? This cycle is the joined arrangement of clinical methods associated with one endeavor at imagining a youngster.

Since the nineteenth century, the Iranian state has been worried about the size of its populace, and strategies coordinated to its expansion or reduction have been firmly engaged with the motivation behind the country building. None of these arrangements have been especially fruitful, aside from the compelling family arranging effort of the 1980s that prompted a striking drop in populace development, which as of now remains at 1.3 per annum, beneath the substitution level. Be that as it may, all the arrangements have neglected to address the issue of barrenness, which is far-reaching in Iran. It was against the foundation of such oversight that, from 1987, some spearheading doctors acquainted IVF rehearses with the nation and drew in with the Islamic law specialists, whose support of fruitlessness treatment through IVF was regarded as critical to give authenticity to the practices. This article investigates the cycle by which helped conceptive advancements were legitimized in Iran in the entirety of their structures and which have set the nation ahead of the pack among the Muslim nations in the Center East in this regard. Inside Iran, following the state’s most recent pronatalist approaches, helped conceptive advances have been recognized as a way to enable the state to meet its new aspiration of higher populace development.

The reason that foreigners have to choose Iran for IVF

Eminent accomplishments in Iran’s history and improvement of this treatment incorporate the introduction of its first IVF infant in 1993 and the main child from a frozen undeveloped organism in 1996.

Yet, we should not overlook one of the most alluring purposes of picking a clinical travel industry involvement with Iran; the chance to test the enjoyments of one of the most charming nations on the earth.

Most explorers leave Iran amazed that it is such a tranquil, protected, and various nation. From lavish woods to deserts, old remnants to stylish bistros, clamoring urban communities to beautiful clans; Iran is genuinely one of the world’s closely held travel insider facts.

History of IVF in Iran

The history of IVF in Iran has been shaped by the interaction between the pioneers of IVF and an interdisciplinary group of experts, together with the endorsement and strong support of the Shia jurists.

  • 1992 – The birth of the first baby following retrograde ejaculation using intrauterine insemination (IUI) was first started in 1989 in Aban Hospital by Dr. Jalil Pakravesh (personal communication).
  • 1994 – Birth of the first baby resulting from intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and the birth of the first baby through egg donation carried out in Yazd by Dr. Mohmmad-Hossein Amir Arjomand (personal communication).
  • 1996/97–Use of ICSI + percutaneous epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA) resulting in the birth of a baby at Shariati Hospital, Tehran, carried out by Dr. Hojat-Allah Saeedi (personal communication).
  • 1998–First case of transferring an embryo produced from testicular spermatozoon by microinjection was carried out by Dr. Akhondi (the author).
  • 2004–Birth of the first baby born following pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) Royan Institute, Tehran, carried out by Dr. Leila Karimian (personal communication).

Indeed, the use of IVF in a range of contexts such as PGD (as a preventive measure for diseases with a genetic basis or for sex selection); sperm, egg, and embryo donation; surrogacy; fertility preservation; and animal conservation (freezing of egg, sperm, and embryo), are commonplace in Iran.

Legal and Religious Consideration of IVF in Iran

Fortunately, almost all the assisted reproductive technologies (ART) including IVF, IUI, ICSI, egg donation, embryo donation, PGD, gender selection, and surrogacy are legal and allowed according to Iran’s law. Sperm donation is the only infertility service that is not allowed according to the legal and religious points of view.

Iran is a Muslim country with the majority of Shia theology followers. In Iran, making decisions about biotechnology legitimization including ART is the responsibility of Islamic jurists or ‘Foghaha’ with the help of medical practitioners in order to fully understand the ethical implication of using them. This is unlike the most secular countries where the decision about biotechnologies is the responsibility of the parliament and expert committee.

In Islam, there are different attitudes regarding the use of assisted reproductive technologies. The Sunni branch of Islam puts more restrictions on getting help from ART and using a third party compared to the Shia school of thought. However, using in vitro fertilization for a husband and wife who use their own gametes for insemination is allowed in both major branches of Islam.

In 1999, Ayatollah Khamenei the supreme leader of Iran approved using donor eggs, embryos, and surrogacy under certain conditions. IVF is definitely legal in Iran because it is the essential process for undergoing other treatments. The legalization of using ART has caused Iran to progress with infertility treatment services just like other top European and American countries and become the region’s leading country in the field of infertility treatment, especially among Muslim patients.
