In Vitro Fertilization

What is IVF ?

IVF or In Vitro (Greek Word means outside the body) Fertilization means when sperm and egg fertilize outside your body. This treatment is also known as tube baby treatment and is ideal for couples who can’t conceive naturally. NephroMed is one of the leading fertility clinics in Kenya which offers affordable IVF cost in Kenya.

What are the indications of IVF ?

In Females, following factors decide whether you need for IVF or not

  • Bi-lateral Tubal Block
  • Infertility for a prolonged time with 3 IUI failures
  • Pre-mature ovarian failures where the ovary is not functioning
  • Certain cases of PCO (Poly-Cystic Ovary) where IUI has failed to give results
  • Multiple abortions that are associated with a genetic disease

In Males, following factors indicate whether the patient should consider IVF or not.

  • Long Standing infertility with normal semen analysis
  • Less than 10 million count and less than 10% motility in semen analysis
  • 0% count in semen analysis

What is Right Age to Enter IVF?

In today’s world, for women, the AMH levels depict fertility power. This is more important than age. If the AMH levels are less than 2.0, then you should go for individualized IVF treatment to treat infertility issues.

However, in many times the AMH levels are interpreted in a wrong way and therefore, the clinical diagnosis with the 2nd-3rd day Transvaginal Sonogram should be co-related with the results. So, if the follicle count is less than 7 in both ovaries then IVF could be the best option for the treatment.

It can be summarized that in cases of age above 35 years or/and married life of 10 years with infertility should be considered for IVF.

What Do You Mean by Success Rate in IVF?

If a woman has fewer eggs (5-10) and even if the reports of her male partner are normal, the average success rate of IVF will become around 30-45% (if you go for freeze all transfer process). But if you go for phase cycle transfer, then the success rate will become 10-12%. So, if you are in between 30-35 years old and all other medical reports are normal, you should consider the freeze all transfer method to become pregnant. Because there are 45% chances of getting pregnant through this process.
