What is IVF?
At the leading IVF clinic in the Republic of Georgia, atlasCARE IVF, we use the latest technology to help you achieve your dreams of parenthood.
IVF (In vitro fertilization) involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid in a laboratory. IVF was created to overcome infertility due to fallopian tube problems in women, but it has become an suitable treatment for virtually all forms of infertility in both men and women.
How long do I need to stay in Georgia for my IVF treatment?
Your time in Georgia:
Option 1: If you want to be in Georgia from beginning to the end of your stimulation process, then you need to be in Georgia on day 2 of your menstrual period and stay for about 17-19 days depending on your egg development.
Option 2: You can start the treatment in your home town and come to Georgia for a shorter time – approx for 10 -12 days. You need to be in Georgia on day 8 of your cycle after you start the injections.
Please Note: Male Partner can stay for only 2 days to deposit his sperm.
Which tests are required from me?
We need hormonal tests, infectious blood tests, full blood count, blood type from the female partner.
We need infectious blood tests, sperm analysis test and blood group from the male partner.
For more detailed list of tests, please contact our IVF Coordinator.
Can I do these tests in Georgia?
If you will be in Georgia from beginning to the end of stimulation process, then yes you can do the tests in Georgia at our clinic, but if you want to start the stimulation in your home town, then you should perform the tests in your home town. Test results must not be older than 6 months when you are at our clinic for your IVF treatment.
Which medication will I use and what will be the cost?
Depending on your hormonal test results, we will determine your medication and dosage. You will be prescribed hormonal injections, vitamins, pessary etc. Once the follicles have reached the appropriate maturity, hormonal injections are given to the patient. This substance acts as an analogue of lutenizing hormone and would cause ovulation about 36 hours after the injection but the egg retrieval procedure takes place just prior to that time in order to recover the eggs from the follicles.
Folic Acid: Folic Acid can prevent major birth defects including Spina Bifida and Anencephaly.
Pessary: Contains the hormone progesterone which is essential for maintaining pregnancy. Progesterone helps prepare the uterus to receive and maintain a fertilized egg.
The cost of medication depends on the dosage of hormonal injection you will need.
Please contact our IVF coordinator to get more detailed information.
How many embryos will be transferred to me?
There is no restriction in Georgia about the number of embryos transferred. As atlasCARE IVF, we make the decision on number depending on the quality and number of fertilized embryos. We generally recommend 2 embryos to be transferred.
When do I learn if I am pregnant or not?
12 days after the embryo transfer, you can perform beta-hCG blood test. It measures the level of hCG hormone present in a sample of your blood. HCG is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy.
What is the success rate on IVF treatment?
Success is very personal. There are many factors that can effect success of IVF treatment, such as: Age, Genetics, the Number of embryos transferred, Sperm & Egg quality, Quality control in the laboratory and nature that no one has power over.
