IVF+PGD

ivf pgdAll IVF treatments begin with a course of hormone therapy to stimulate the development of several follicles in the ovary. These are collected as eggs, which are then fertilized in a test-tube ('in vitro') to create several embryos.

After between two and five days in an incubator, these embryos are transferred through the vagina to the uterus, where implantation occurs and pregnancy begins. However, in IVF as in natural conception, not every embryo implants to become a pregnancy, which is why surplus embryos are frozen - so that a subsequent transfer might be tried if the first one fails. Freezing is now an essential part of every clinic's IVF programme.

Micromanipulation is a radical method of assisted reproduction. It is one of the most effective procedures to help men overcome male infertility issues and has helped more and more couples suffering from infertility since 1992.

ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) is beneficial for all couples, however it is significant for those where fertilizatıon maybe difficult, even when IVF procedures are used.

At Kyrenia IVF, the ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) procedure is carried out as standard as part of all our IVF treatmentsto ensure fertilization at no extra charge.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure carried out prior to implantation to help identify genetic defects within embryos created through IVF. The procedure is used to prevent certain diseases or disorders from being passed on to the child. It can also be used to determine the gender of the embryos before they are transferred to the uterus.

Couples at risk of passing on a genetic disease or condition may qualify for PGD under the following criteria:

  • Women aged 35 and over
  • Carriers of sex-linked genetic disorders
  • Carriers of single gene defects
  • Those with chromosomal disorders
  • Women experiencing recurring pregnancy loss associated with
  • chromosomal concerns
  • Couples wanting to balance their family

PGD can identify the presence of the following disorders: 

Recessive sex-linked disorders such as haemophilia, fragile X syndrome, and most Neuromuscular dystrophies, Dominant sexlinked disorders such as Rett syndrome, incontinentia pigmenti, pseudohypererparathydroidism, and vitamin D resistant rickets, Single gene disorders such as cystic fibrosis, Tay-sachs, Huntington disease, and sickle cell anaemia, and Chromosomal rearrangements such as translocation, inversion, deletions and Aneuploidy.

The needed Medical Tests:

Women Hormone Blood Tests:

  • FSH (follicle stimulating hormone)
  • TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
  • E2 (estradiol)
  • Prolactin
  • AMH (anti-mullerian hormone)

Trans-vaginal scan (Ultrasound Scan) for ovarian & uterine assessment Ultrasound Scan:

The purpose of these scans is to measure your response to medication. More precisely, the purpose of the scan is the following:

  • Assessment of endometrial appearance and thickness
  • Assessment of uterine conditions (to make sure there are no uterine pathologies that may interfere with our treatment).
  • Assessment of the ovaries.

Infectious Diseases Screening:

  • Anti-HIV – test for HIV/AIDS infection
  • Anti-HCV – test for Hepatitis C virus infection
  • Rubella IgG- IgM – test for German measles infection
  • CMV IgG – test for Cytomegalovirus infection
  • HbsAg – test for Hepatitis B virus infection
  • VDRL – test for Syphilis infection
  • Anti- Hbs

Infectious Diseases tests can be done in Cyprus, if the patient prefers to do it in Cyprus. The cost will be 200 Euros per patient. But the patient shall know that at our clinic that we don’t treat patients who are tested positive for the above tests, as we cannot take any risks at the hospital of infecting other patients, and our Laboratory.

how to start the treatment:

  • Step 1

  • Step 2  

Fill the application form that is sent to you by your coordinator or you can schedule a call with your coordinator and she will ask you some questions.

  • Step 3 

Schedule a pelvic scan date with your Gynecologist. Also, to make the required Medical Tests. 

  • Step 4

Send the application form, Medical tests results, and Scan to your coordinator.

  • Step 5

Once you have sent your results. Within 24 hours, your coordinator will send you an assessment letter from the doctor. This assessment letter, will have everything included, about your situation, success rates, best treatment for you, and advices

  • Step 7 

At this time after everything has been organized, you will be receiving your medical Treatment protocol and a prescription to start your treatment.

Egg & Sperm Collection

Our team will advise you of your pick-up time for the day of egg collection. During the eggs collection, our team at Kyrenia IVF will be preparing the sperm sample from your partner (. Abstinence from ejaculation for two to three days prior to providing the semen specimen is recommended. 

Fertilization

The most motile sperms are selected for fertilization. To ensure fertilization, our team uses the ICSI procedure. This technique involves the insemination of sperm into each egg by micro-injection. Once you have had the appropriate rest, our transfer team will take you back to your hotel. Our doctors will also discuss with you the amount of eggs that were collected and the sperm quality. Our team will also discuss with you any other information regarding the procedures carried out that day. After 24 hours, you will receive an update regarding the fertilization process and the amount of embryos. 

Embryo Transfer

The embryos are transferred on either day three or day five of development. Our compassionate embryologist is highly skilled in identifying healthy embryos and in some cases will recommend extending embryo development to day five — also known as blastocyst stage. Blastocyst transfer is common in IVF cycles as it can increase the chances for success while decreasing the likelihood of multiples. Dr. Verda will work closely with our Embryologist to determine if a day three or day five transfer is ideal for you. On transfer day, Dr. Verda will discuss with you the quality and quantity of your embryos. You can then decide how many you wish to have tran sferred. Again you will be shown to a room and provided with the necessary garments. Embryos are transferred to the uterus through a soft embryo transfer catheter. This painless procedure is similar to a pap smear and does not require any anaesthesia. The embryos are placed in a small amount of fluid inside the catheter, which is passed through the cervix at the time of a speculum examination and ultrasound guıdance. The embryos are placed in a position to reach the top part of the uterus. The catheter is removed and checked to ensure that all the embryos have been transferred. You are required to have a full bladder for the transfer procedure and we advise that you begin drinking water on the way to the hospital. After the embryo transfer is complete, your bed will be wheeled from the procedure room into your private room, all while you remain lying flat on your back. Since you must remain as flat as possible, a bed pan will be brought to you by the nurse approximately 15 minutes after the transfer procedure if needed. If you desire to use cryopreservation, the good quality embryos that are not transferred can be frozen in liquid nitrogen, carefully labeled and stored in the embryo bank. These can be used in subsequent cycles if pregnancy is not achieved on the first attempt or if you decide to have more children at a later date. 

The Result

The most accurate test for pregnancy is the beta hCG blood test — 12 days after the embryo transfer (day 1 being the day after transfer took place). hCG is human, also known as 'the pregnancy hormone'. The body begins to produce hCG when an embryo begins to implant in the uterus. While we understand many intended parents are anxious to find out the results at home, please wait until day 12. The ovulation trigger injection the nurse administered prior to egg collection contains hCG and if you test too soon you may pick up traces of this and NOT the hCG produced by pregnancy. The injection can remain in your system for 8-10 days so testing too soon may give a false positive. The beta hCG test will report the level of hCG hormone that is present. 

In some cases, it can be difficult to have a blood test carried out. A home pregnancy test will indicate whether or not there is any detectable hCG in your urine and not the level present. Please wait to carry out a home pregnancy test 14 days after the embryo transfer. Please note hCG is present in urine in the highest concentration first thing in the morning. 

If you have a positive result, it is very important that you continue the medication as advised by Dr. Verda. You can also advise your doctor / gynaecologist as you will need support and subsequent tests and scans. You should repeat the beta test in 2 to 3 days. The goal is to have the level of hCG double every 3 days. If it does another beta test should be carried out in another 2-3 days time. If all three betas indicate a healthy pregnancy, then a vaginal ultrasound will be scheduled between 6 to 8 weeks of the pregnancy. At that time, your doctor will be looking for a heartbeat and a gestational sac to confirm the pregnancy. 

If the result is negative and you have had a blood test on day 12, ALL medication should cease straight away. If the result is negative and you have carried out a urine test on day 14, werecommend that you continue taking the medication as advised by Dr. Verda for another 2 days and test again. If the result is still negative, ALL medication should cease right away. 

Any negative result on your pregnancy test is devastating — Dr. Verda and the Kyrenia IVF staff are available to answer any questions you have about the procedure and discuss further options for you.

Patient Guide

When a woman cannot carry her own pregnancy to term, some work with another woman who agrees to be a gestational surrogate. Specialists use IVF to make embryos with a woman’s eggs and her partner’s sperm. The surrogate is the one who goes through the pregnancy after IVF. But her DNA is not involved. The baby will be the biological child of both husband and wife.

Women who are over 40, have poor egg quality, or have not had success with previous cycles may consider an egg donor. This involves combining the man’s sperm with another woman’s donated eggs. If the procedure works, the woman becomes pregnant with a child who is biologically related to her partner but not herself.

Doctors will inject the sperm directly into the egg in a lab. This technique, called “ICSI” (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), helps when a man’s sperm count is very low or his sperm don’t move well. When the fertilized egg is ready, it goes into the woman’s uterus through the normal IVF process.

Fertile women can choose IUI using sperm from a donor. It may take several tries, but pregnancy rates are over 80%. You and your partner may want to see a counsellor first, to make sure you’re both ready to raise a child who is not biologically related to the father.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a popular procedure for many fertility problems. Doctors place the man’s sperm into the woman’s uterus, but not into the egg itself, while she ovulates. You may also need to take drugs to prompt your body to ovulate. IUI is less expensive and simpler than IVF (in vitro fertilization), but pregnancy rates are much lower.

These include:

  • Low sperm count
  • Poor sperm movement
  • Misshaped sperm
  • Blocked sperm ducts

A few lifestyle changes can make a difference. If you smoke, quit. Smoking lowers fertility for men and women and dims pregnancy rates. In one study, men who stopped smoking saw their sperm counts climb 800%. Also, check your diet. Is it as healthy as possible? Ask your doctor about supplements. Some vitamins and

Knowing your menstrual cycle improves your chances of getting pregnant. The first phase starts with the first day of your period or blood flow. Your body releases hormones that makes the eggs inside your ovaries grow. Between day 2 and 14, those hormones also help thicken the lining of your uterus to get ready for a fertilized egg. This is called the follicular stage.

Generally, the highest chance of pregnancy is when sex happens1-2 days before ovulation. If you have a regular 28-day cycle, count back 14 days from when you expect your next period to start. Plan on having sex every other day around that time -- say, days 12 and 14.  Keep in mind that having sex every day may lower a man's sperm count. Your cycle may be longer or shorter, so an online ovulation calculator may help you identify the likely day.
