HIGH FERTILISATION RATE
In our clinic we always let the embryos develop until day 5 if we possibly can. We use our embryo monitoring system – the Embryoscope – to ensure that we have the information we need to select the best embryos for transfer. Our couples are informed about the development of their embryos on a daily basis during the entire period of the five-day cultivation. By using this system we achieve high success rates leading to the birth of a healthy baby.
EMBRYO CULTIVATION AND MONITORING TO ENSURE THE BEST RESULTS
Using the ICSI method, our experienced team of embryologists manage to reach a fertilisation rate of 85 to 100%. This is important because the creation of a greater number of embryos means that we have a bigger chance of successfully selecting suitable embryos for transfer. This also means that there might be surplus quality embryos which can be frozen and used on a subsequent transfer.
67%SUCCESS RATE OF OUR DONOR PROGRAM
To ensure that we achieve the best possible treatment results, we focus on quality stimulation of both the donor and the recipient.
Our success rates are amongst the best in Europe for donor treatment. Last year we managed to achieve a 67% success rate for egg donation treatment with fresh cycles. This success rate is based only on pregnancies which are confirmed by an ultra sound examination, i.e. clinical pregnancies, not chemical pregnancies (which are based on a positive urine test).
The following chart shows our Donor Program for two types of treatment: treatment with donor eggs (OD) and treatment with both donor eggs and donor sperm, i.e. with donor embryo (DE).
The age of the treated women was separated into three categories: up to 40 years (< 40), from 40 to 45 years (≤ 45), and over 45 years (> 45). The Embryoscope was used in 90% of all donor cycles. Thanks to this technology, we were able to select the best embryos for transfer. As a result of our expertise and using cutting edge technology our rates are amongst the best in Europe for donor treatment.
Due to careful monitoring of our egg donors in the Donor Program we are able to retrieve a high number of quality eggs. As a result we were able to freeze surplus high-quality embryos for our patients in 71% of the IVF cycles with donor eggs (OD). In patients using both donor eggs and donor sperm (donor embryo – DE) we were able to freeze at least two additional embryos in 100% cycles.
53%SUCCESS RATE OF OUR FET DONOR PROGRAM (Frozen-Thawed Embryo Transfer)
Donor embryos were created specifically for the Donor Program. They were continuously monitored for 5 days until they reached the blastocyst stage using the Embryoscope. All of the embryos selected for freezing were of top grade quality.
The success rate of the FET Donor Program was 53% when two donor embryos (2 DE) were transferred. It was 47% when one donor embryo (1 DE) was transferred. The results in the FET Donor Program reflect only the pregnancies confirmed by an ultra sound examination, i.e. clinical pregnancies, not chemical pregnancies (which are based on a positive urine test).
58%IVF SUCCESS RATE USING PATIENTS OWN EGGS AND SPERM
The success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment when using a patient’s own eggs and sperm is dependent on the age of the women. In our clinic, IVF success rates start at 36% in women who are 37 – 40 years. In women aged 37 years old or younger it reaches 58%.
Infertility treatment with the use of the woman’s own germ cells (eggs) is not recommended to women over 40 because of the high probability of chromosomal abnormalities in the embryo. Donor Egg Treatment is possible.
