In vitro fertilization, IVF Treatment Pakistan performs a classic artificial insemination procedure. It is about fertilization in the laboratory, under a microscope, on a slide, or in a test tube. Pakistan is unique in the world regarding the availability of artificial insemination procedures, as it is very accessible to couples facing infertility, and the insurance company also covers these procedures.
Infertile couples are entitled to six free artificial insemination attempts for their first child and four free methods for their second child.
Which couples are suitable for the IVF procedure?
For couples facing problems conceiving, we first perform diagnostic tests, and based on the results of these tests, we decide on the treatment method.
We always treat as efficiently and successfully as possible. When we have exhausted all options for the couple (i.e., hormonal and operative treatment), we can approach the test tube itself or artificial insemination. In therapy, we can choose between several treatment methods. We always approach individually, which is how we achieve the best results. So we talk to the couples, explain the procedure, and prepare a protocol. We also send such a couple to a consultation, followed by treatment by various gynecologists and embryologists, who approve the therapy.
How long does it take?
The process of ovarian stimulation itself lasts somewhere between two and three weeks. Fertilization is then performed on the day of the puncture. The embryos remain in the laboratory for two to five days and are implanted into the uterus.
Is artificial insemination painful?
Regardless of the cause, the IVF process is the most stressful for women. This is because we have female ovaries, and systemic stimulation is required. As a result, the ovaries increase, more fluid is retained in the body, and there is greater sensitivity in the lower abdomen. So the stimulation itself burdens the woman the most. Even the puncture, the surgical intervention in which the egg cells are obtained, is invasive and painful. However, the embryo transfer itself is then painless in most cases. Gynecologists, embryologists, and patients decide together on the number of embryos transferred. The decision is related to the patient’s age, her constitution, the lining of the uterus, the quality of the sources, and the number of previous procedures… All these factors influence how many embryos are transferred in the operating room.
What is the success rate of IVF procedures?
The success of the procedures is highly dependent on the causes of infertility. However, the average success rate is between 25 and 30% per cycle. But it should be emphasized that with the age of women, it declines sharply.
So it drops drastically with age…
That’s right. Therefore, the test tube does not solve everything. The success of the test tube is significantly reduced if the patient comes to the clinic for infertility treatment too late when the genetic material is almost gone or there is very little of it. In such cases, even with the most modern infertility treatment procedures, it is more difficult to get pregnant.
What about prevention?
Yes, fertility IVF Cost in Pakistan can be assessed at any time of a woman’s reproductive life. Based on anamnestic data, clinical examinations, hormone examinations, ultrasound examinations, and follicle count, we can assess the fertility capacity and thus tell the patient what her fertility window is. Based on risk factors, we can advise on prevention and tell when it makes sense to plan a child (if other conditions are also given).
