IVF (Fertility in Iran)
IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF is the process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish.
[Approximate costs for IVF in Iran is 2050$]
What Is IVF?
In-vitro-Fertilization (IVF) is a common infertility treatment. During the procedure, a fertility doctor takes the eggs from the ovaries using a small needle and fertilizes them with sperm in a specialized lab. After fertilization happens, the eggs develop into embryos. Three to five days later, the specialist re-implants the embryos back into the uterus.

Why Choose Iran for IVF?
IVF Can be Used to Treat Infertility in the Following Patients?
- Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
- Male factor infertility including decreased sperm count or sperm motility
- Women with ovulation disorders, premature ovarian failure, uterine fibroids
- Women who have had their fallopian tubes removed
- Individuals with a genetic disorder
- Unexplained infertility
Who Is a Good Candidate for IVF?
Couples that have been unsuccessful in getting pregnant with other fertility treatments often turn to IVF to conceive. Women with tubal issues can benefit from IVF. Since the IVF procedure bypasses the fallopian tubes entirely, many women with blocked or absent fallopian tubes find that IVF helps them to conceive. Other good IVF candidates include women with fertility disorders like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). IVF can help them overcome their infertility symptoms and become pregnant. Women with abnormal ovulation cycles can also get pregnant with IVF, since fertility drugs can be used to induce ovulation and generate healthy eggs.
Who May Not Benefit from IVF?
In vitro fertilization (IVF) isn’t for everyone. If you do not want to use donor eggs during IVF, and your ovaries do not produce healthy eggs, you will have little success with IVF.
Also, since egg production slows as a woman approaches age 40, women older than 37 may have a reduced chance of getting pregnant with IVF.
If you are past your late 30s, you may consider using donor eggs to increase your chances of conceiving with IVF. Use of donor eggs with IVF achieves similar pregnancy rates for women of all ages, and about 50 percent of women that attempt IVF with donor eggs are able to get pregnant. However, even if older women do get pregnant with donor eggs, women over 40 still have a greater chance of miscarriage.
Aging and Fertility
Decline in live birth success rates by female age beginning at approximately age 31. Infertility increases with age. This curve becomes steeper starting at about age 37. At age 44 and above births resulting from IVF using the female’s own eggs are almost nonexistent. The live birth success rate using eggs over age 43 is 2% per attempt. Most IVF centers are willing to attempt IVF using the female partner’s eggs until about age 43-45, after which the couple would be offered egg donation as the only realistic and appropriate fertility approach.
A study published in 1957 by Tietze in Fertility and Sterility examined the relationship between the age of the female partner and fertility. This study found that the percentages of infertile couples were:
- By age 30 = 7%
- By age 35 = 11%
- By age 40 = 33%
- At age 45 = 87%
