IVF Tunisia : in vitro fertilization

IVF Tunisia: what is in vitro fertilization in Tunisia?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medically assisted reproduction technique that takes place in a laboratory. It involves reproducing natural fertilization in an artificial way, in other words, fertilizing an egg with a spermatozoon in an artificial environment, outside the uterus (in vitro).

IVF is one of the techniques that can be used if you want to conceive a child and you are unable to do so naturally, for various possible reasons: alteration of the uterine tubes in women (blocked or absent tubes) or male infertility (low mobility and/or number of spermatozoa).

In vitro fertilization in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step is the pre-operative check-up. You will be asked to do a series of biological tests (serological tests, hormonal tests, spermogram, sperm culture, sperm count). The purpose of these tests is to verify that both partners are in perfect health and to ensure that the chances of success of IVF are high enough. The doctor must inform the couple about the treatment program, the waiting time required and the risks and side effects of IVF.

How does in vitro insemination work in Tunisia?

In vitro fertilization is a fairly complex procedure that takes place in several stages:

– Ovarian stimulation: A daily hormonal treatment is administered to the woman to stimulate hormonal secretion from the follicles. The response to the treatment is monitored by ultrasound. Ovarian stimulation controls follicular growth to ensure that a sufficient number of mature oocytes are obtained, ready to be fertilized.

– Oocyte retrieval : This step is done under anesthesia (general or local), 34 to 36 hours before the oocyte retrieval. It is monitored by ultrasound. The doctor locates the mature oocytes in order to retrieve them using a needle and a small tube introduced into the vagina. The oocytes are then selected in the laboratory. The sperm is usually collected the same day. If it has been collected before, it is thawed a few hours before fertilization.

– Follicle puncture: The collected oocytes and sperm are brought together the same day. Fertilization takes place in culture media with a composition similar to the natural environment of the fallopian tubes. No intervention is done from then on, the fertilization process occurs spontaneously.

– Embryo transfer: Using a thin catheter, the doctor transfers and deposits the embryo in the woman’s uterus, where it will gradually develop. This step takes place approximately 2 to 5 days after the puncture.
