IVF Treatment over 40 years of age requires careful planning after a thorough assessment of ovarian function, previous history of infertility, including prior fertility treatments, miscarriages, as well as many other factors.
While using own eggs after 40 suggests lower chance of success, a careful treatment planning makes a difference.
While IVF treatment over 50 years of age is possible at North Cyprus IVF Center, a thorough screening is required in order to assess fitness for pregnancy. IVF over 50 necessitates using donor eggs as a woman over 50 years old will not have sufficient ovarian function.
However, recent application of ovarian PRP has promoted hope in terms of the possibility of using own eggs.
Egg donation at North Cyprus IVF clinic is a treatment option suitable for patients who cannot achieve pregnancy using their own eggs during an IVF treatment.
This group of patients include women with premature ovarian failure, women in menopause, women who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy and therefore lost their ovarian function, women at the risk of transmitting a genetic condition to her child and gay men who need donor eggs to have a child.
Due to our strict egg donor recruitment criteria, our expertise, high level of technology and favorable laws, we are able to offer success rates around 80% with this treatment option.
Egg donation in North Cyprus is done anonymously. However, we can offer agency donors from overseas agencies for patients willing to use a known egg donor.The cost of this option would be substantially higher than using a clinic egg donor. Read more on our “IVF with Donor Eggs” section.
IVF with sperm donation is a fertility treatment option for couples with male factor infertility where the male partner suffers from azoospermia or any other problem which prevents him from achieving pregnancy using his own sperm sample. This treatment option is also offered to single women or lesbian couples who wish to become pregnant without a male partner.
In this treatment option, certified sperm samples from known and accredited sperm banks are used. IVF with sperm donation is also done anonymously where donor and recipient contact and personal information are kept confidential. Given that we use sperm samples in an anonymous fashion from sperm banks, we are also not in possession of your sperm donor’s identification or contact information. However, we do have access to medical information as well as relevant test and screening results.
Success with this treatment depends on not only the quality of sperm, but also the count and quality of oocytes to be obtained from the female patient For more information on sperm donor IVF treatment at North Cyprus IVF Center, please visit our “IVF with Donor Sperm” page.
Just like how being able to select the highest quality embryos for embryo transfer determines the likelihood of success with IVF treatments, being able to select the highest quality sperm determines the quality of the embryos that will be created after ICSI. The micro chip technology allows us to select not only the best sperm cells, but also the sperm cells with highest genetic integrity (lowest DNA damage).
Cytoplasmic IVF transfer is one of the latest approaches in fertility treatments. When used as part of an IVF/ICSI program has the potential of increasing success rates in older age brackets. This treatment option rests on the principle that cells are fueled by the organelles found in the cytoplasm, mainly the mitochondria. Mitochondria found in the cytoplasm are responsible for providing energy for growth.
Embryoscope is a trademark name for the time lapse embryo imaging technology used during IVF treatments.
This technology allows the embryologist to watch and observe embryo growth in a continuos manner through the screens fitted onto the incubators in which the embryos are placed, or through an iPad with the appropriate application which makes it possible to monitor the embryos with remote access.
