Stages of IVF treatment in Germany

IVF Treatment

IVF fertility clinic in Germany performs several stages of fertilization. Comprehensive diagnosis is an important step prior to the IVF treatment. Main medical conditions are taken into account e.g. the age of the expectant mother, the clinical story, etc.. All the possible risks and chances are discussed with the expert.

The main diagnostic procedures which are to be performed prior to in vitro fertilization in Germany (IVF) are

  • the study of the hormonal status,
  • ultrasound check tubal patency using a contrasting sonography (hysteroscopy),
  • general laboratory diagnostics,
  • special laboratory diagnostics,
  • semen, bacteriological, virological and serological studies,
  • genetic and immunological diagnostics etc.

If the conservative or surgical treatment of infertility proved to be inefficient, the German specialists advise the IVF procedures which imply the following steps:

  1. The stimulation of the ovaries. A woman makes herself injections of hormonal drugs that lead to maturing in her ovaries of 10 or more eggs. This allows the specialist to fertilize several eggs and get a few embryos, which increases the success chances. The dosage and mode of use of hormonal agents as well as the ovarian response to administered drug are closely monitored by a gynecologist through repeated ultrasound examinations.
  2. Extraction of the oocyte. This is a mini-operation, which is carried out under intravenous anesthesia. The doctor prescribes a puncture of ovarian follicles once the follicle reaches the desired size. Oocyte is being taken out by aspiration of follicular fluid with a special needle; the entire process is controlled by ultrasound equipment. Content of extracted follicle is being examined under a stereomicroscope for the availability and quality of the oocytes. Then they are being wash out from follicular fluid and placed in the test tubes with a nutrient medium (IVF clinic often uses Petri dishes for this).
  3. Preparation of sperm. On the day of egg retrieval from the ovary man delivers sperm. Only the most agile and healthy sperms are selected for the IVF procedure. Each egg, which is received from a woman is surrounded with a portion of sperm.
  4. The embryology part. Embryologists inject sperm into the oocyte "by hand" using special IVF microsurgery tools. After fertilization of the oocyte - the embryo is transferred to a special tube, where the development of the fetus takes place in the special culture medium. Modern IVF clinics in Germany are equipped with CO2 incubators with PH-control system.
  5. Fertilization. The embryo incubation lasts from 2 to 6 days. Embryo transfer into the uterus is performed through a thin catheter, inserted through the cervix into the uterus. Pregnancy is determined 14 days after transplantation. The remaining embryos can be frozen and stored for future use. The cost of the whole IVF cycle makes about 6 000-7 000 euro (incl. the diagnosis and hormone medication).

Assisted laser hatching (ALH) makes IVF more efficient

The egg or the embryo is surrounded with a solid shell, the so-called zona pellucida. When the embryo reaches the blastocyst stage in the course of its development, it must slip out of this shell to nestle in the womb. Sometimes this shell is "hardened" or exceptionally thick, so it is imposible for the embryo to get implanted after the IVF difficult transfer. In these cases the zona pellucida is thinned with laser to facilitate the growing of embryo and thus the implantation.
