In-Vitro Fertilization

One of the most used techniques in Assited Reproduction is In Vitro Fertilization. Do you know what it is about?

What is programmed intercourse?

Fertility problems are very common, this condition affects many couples trying to conceive, and although there are different causes, it may be due to ovulation so timing of intercourse could be a solution for them.
This is about scheduling ovulation with intercourse to increase the chances of a pregnancy.

What is In Vitro Fertilization?

In-Vitro Fertilization is a highly complex treatment, and refers to the union of the egg and sperm in a lab.

It is the method with the most probability of positive results

For whom is this treatment ideal?

This kind of procedure can help couples with infertility situations, such as:

Ovulation problems

Blocked fallopian tubes


Poor sperm quality

Advanced maternal age

And it could be a great option for them to become parents, increasing the chances of a pregnancy.

What is the procedure for this treatment?

This type of procedure increases the chances of a pregnancy, because multiple embryos are usually introduced and thanks to the experience of our IVF specialists, at Ingenes we have developed advanced embryo culture and selection techniques that allow us to select an adequate number of embryos to transfer, reducing the risk of multiple pregnancies.
Nowadays technology allows us to perform extended embryo culture, allowing us to take them to the blastocyst stage. This enables a better embryo selection to distinguish those with higher quality and greater implantation potential. The blastocyst stage embryo transfer is also concordant to the natural process inside a woman’s body since it is around the fifth day when a naturally fertilized embryo usually reaches the uterus from the fallopian tubes.

This procedure consists of five basic steps:

Step 1 – Ovarian Stimulation

Usually a woman produces one egg per month, but with fertility medications it can generate multiple eggs. This stage lasts about 10 days to stimulate egg production. The medications are administered either orally or by injection and it is necessary a constant monitoring by a specialist to avoid risks, such as, multiple pregnancies and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrom.

Step 2 – Egg retrieval

Transvaginal egg retrieval is the extraction of a patient’s eggs by means of an ultrasound probe adapted with a thin needle when the patient is sedated, this needle carefully passes through the vaginal wall to reach the ovaries to aspirate the folicular content and get the ovule that is growing. Using the appropriate technlogy, egg retrieval is a very simple ambulatory procedure, allowing the patients to carry out their normal activities after a day of rest.
At Ingenes we have an expert team and the best technology to extract the eggs without any problems. It is important to know that the number of eggs collected is related to the probability of success, so an ideal amount is to get between 10 and 20 eggs.

Step 3 – Fertilization

The semen sample is processed through a technique known as sperm capacitation, which aims to increase the sperm sample fertilization potential.
Once processed, the best sperms are placed along with the best quality eggs in a special cell culture dish to allow fertilization to take place. Generally, the sperm takes a few hours to fertilize the egg.

Step 4 – Embryo culture

When the eggs are fertilized they become embryos and it is necessary to keep them in special incubators within the Assisted Reproduction Laboratory. The embryos must be monitored and after several days of supervised culture, the best embryos are selected to be transferred back into the maternal uterus.

Step 5 – Embryo transfer

The embryos are placed inside the maternal uterus using a thin catheter introduced vaginally. This technique, known as embryo transfer, is painless, lasts only a few minutes and is performed under abdominal ultrasound guidance. If you choose Ingenes to do it, this is the plan we can offer you to have Your Star at Home: The process starting with your Evaluation Program, takes place at Ingenes in the United States, at the Ingenes branch of your choice, and some of the steps must be carried out in Mexico, as follows:

  • Diagnosis and Evaluation Program (2 appointments) – In USA
  • Ovarian stimulation and/or endometrial preparation (8 to 12 days) – In USA
  • Egg retrieval and preparation of sperm sample In Vitro Fertilization (1 day) – In Mexico
  • Extended embryo culture and embryo transfer on day 5 or 6 (3 to 6 days) – In Mexico
  • Blood Pregnancy test 10 days after – In USA
  • First gestational check (1 or 2 appointments after blood test) – In USA

Rest assured that you are in the best hands
