In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) at Seoul Women's Hospital

In vitro fertilization is a process of fertilization where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body. After 2~3 or 5 days of embryo culture, the fertilized egg is then transferred to the woman’s uterus. Since both egg and sperm are collected and fertilized outside of the body, it is called the in vitro. Mature embryos are usually transferred back into the uterus, it is commonly called IVF-ET. It is not only a medical treatment but also a useful evaluation tool to figure out the quality and condition of egg and sperm, fertilization ability, and development ability of embryos.

  • Ovulation Induction
  • Ovulation induction is the stimulation of ovulation by medication to develop ovarian follicles. There are one-month-course and two-month-course, which depend on the case of each patient. Patients must stick to the doctor’s guideline. Ovulation inducing agent will be administered 2~3 days prior to period and will be continued for a week or two according to the maturity of follicles.

  • Collection of Eggs and Sperm Sample
  • Once egg is fully mature, egg retrieval will be performed. The patient will be under sedation and complications are very rare. The process will take 20~30 minutes and the patient may need 2 hours of recovery period. For the male partner, he has to avoid intercourse for 3 days before the test. The semen should be gathered after a three day abstinence from sexual activity. He will come visit the clinic on the day of egg retrieval.

  • In vitro Fertilization and Culture
  • After 6 to 8 hours of culture, mature oocytes are placed to be fertilized. Approximately 18 hours after the procedure, the embryologists will check for fertilization. It may take 2~3 days or up to 5 days to fully culture the sample.

  • Embryo Transfer
  • 3 days or 5 days after egg retrieval, the embryos are placed into the uterus using a thin tube. If needed, special culture medium can be used to help embryos to implant.

  • Pregnancy Test
  • After 12 days of egg retrieval, blood test will be performed to check pregnancy.

What you need to know about In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in Incheon

In order for a pregnancy to occur naturally, the ovary releases an egg at ovulation which travels through the Fallopian tube where it meets the sperm and is then fertilized. The fertilized egg enters the uterine cavity where it implants in the thickened lining of the uterus (the endometrium).  

Through IVF treatment (In Vitro Fertilisation), the ovaries are stimulated to produce a number of eggs which are then collected and mixed with sperm in the laboratory; this then allows fertilization to occur. The developing embryos are monitored closely and the healthiest embryos are then transferred into the uterus to allow implantation to occur.     

IVF is a series of procedures performed to treat infertility especially to women over the age of 40. It can also be used as a treatment for certain health conditions such as Ovulation Disorder, Premature Ovarian Failure, Fallopian Tube Damage, Endometriosis, Unexplained Infertility, Uterine Fibroids, Impaired sperm production or function, Previous tubal sterilization or removal, Genetic Disorder, or Fertility preservation for cancer patients.  

What's the Recovery Time for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Procedures in Incheon?

What's the Success Rate of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Procedures in Incheon?
