GYNECOLOGY- IVF (IN VITRO FERTILIZATION)
Gynecology is a branch of women’s health and has several sub-branches that include obstetrics, infertility, IVF, family planning, gynecological oncology, sexual diseases, and sexual problems. IVF treatment is a medical procedure used to assist couples who are experiencing infertility problems. It is an abbreviation for in-vitro fertilization, which involves fertilizing an egg outside of the body with sperm from a male partner and implanting it in the female partner’s uterus. When traditional methods fail, this procedure assists many couples in becoming pregnant. There are some important points to be considered before thinking about having IVF treatment in Turkey for foreign patients. One of them is that only married couples are allowed to have this treatment. Gender selection, surrogacy, and egg, sperm, and embryo donation are not allowed in our country. There’s no age limit legally, but clinics tend to treat women under the age of 46 to get success. IVF treatment is gaining popularity in Turkey due to its high success rates (70 percent until the age of 35) and low cost in comparison to other countries. Each year in Turkey, 42,000 IVF treatments are carried out.
