What is in vitro fertilisation?

For a pregnancy to occur naturally, the ovary releases an egg at ovulation, which travels into the fallopian tube where it meets sperm and is then fertilised. The fertilised egg enters the uterine cavity, where it implants in the thick wall of the uterus (the endometrium).

With IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment, the ovaries are stimulated to produce a number of eggs, which are then collected and mixed with sperm in the laboratory, allowing fertilisation to take place. The developing embryos are closely monitored and the healthiest embryos are then transferred to the uterus for implantation.

In vitro fertilisation in Tunisia is a series of procedures carried out to treat infertility, particularly in women over the age of 40. It can also be used to treat certain health problems such as ovulation disorders, premature ovarian failure, fallopian tube damage, endometriosis, unexplained infertility, uterine fibroids, impaired sperm production or function, previous tubal sterilisation or ablation, a genetic disorder or fertility preservation for cancer patients.

What does an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure involve?

In vitro fertilisation in Tunisia is a lengthy process and can take several months to complete. Although this procedure increases your chances of getting pregnant, there is still no guarantee that it will work for everyone.

Before undergoing IVF, you and your partner must first undergo a series of tests such as sperm analysis, ovarian reserve testing, screening for infectious diseases, simulated embryo transfer and examination of the uterine cavity.

After screening, you will both undergo IVF procedures :

Fertility drugs – these are drugs prescribed to stimulate your ovaries to increase your egg production. Several eggs need to be produced as it is expected that some will not develop or be fertilised after retrieval. During this stage, a transvaginal ultrasound is used to check the ovaries and a blood test will also be administered to check your hormone levels.

Your eggs will be retrieved through a minor surgical procedure. This procedure will be carried out using the latest ultrasound technology to guide a needle into each of your ovaries to extract the eggs. A propofol anaesthetic will usually be used during the procedure.

Sperm sample – Your partner will be asked to produce a sperm sample to match the eggs you have retrieved for fertilisation. If you are using donated sperm, it will be removed from the freezer and prepared in the same way.

Insemination – In this procedure, the eggs and sperm are mixed and stored in a laboratory dish for fertilisation. If the chances of fertilisation are low, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be used. In this case, a single sperm will be injected directly into the egg; the eggs will be closely monitored to see if fertilisation takes place.

Embryo transfer – Once fertilisation has been successful, cell division takes place; the fertilised eggs are now called embryos. These embryos will then be transferred to your uterus 3 to 5 days after the eggs have been retrieved and fertilised. For women under 40, one or two embryos can be transferred and for women aged 40 and over, a maximum of 3 embryos can be transferred. The number of embryos to be transferred must be limited in order to prevent the risk of multiple births.

How long do I have to stay in Tunisia for an In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) procedure?

Although it is advisable to take it easy after the embryo transfer, some women are able to resume their normal daily routine after the procedure. Please note that scheduled follow-up visits with your surgeon are essential to your recovery and healing and that you will need to stay in Tunisia for 10 to 12 days. However, you should also be aware of possible side effects:

  • The discharge of a small amount of fluid (which may be clear or tinged with blood) after the procedure.
  • Slight cramping and/or bloating
  • Constipation
  • Breast tenderness

What is the recovery time for in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures in Tunisia?

12 days after egg collection, your doctor will carry out a blood test to check whether you are pregnant. You will therefore need to stay a little longer after IVF to ensure that all the procedures are fully successful.

What kind of follow-up is required for in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures in Tunisia?

Counselling is very important when undergoing IVF; everyone needs to understand that not all IVF procedures are successful. It is strongly recommended that couples receive appropriate counselling during and after IVF treatment.

What is the success rate of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures in Tunisia?

The success rate of IVF depends on a number of factors, including the mother’s age, lifestyle, cause of infertility and reproductive history. 40% of women under the age of 35 will be successful, 25% of women aged 36 to 41 will be successful and only 4% of women over 42 will be successful. You should also understand that the pregnancy rate is not exactly the same as the live birth rate. In addition, you should also be aware that IVF carries some minor risks, for example, you may experience nausea or vomiting, breathing difficulties, fainting, stomach pains and bloating, and possible weight gain.

Are there any alternatives to in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures in Tunisia?

In vitro fertilisation is not the only possible treatment for infertility. Other fertility treatments to consider may include:

Intrauterine insemination – commonly known as artificial insemination. In this procedure, sperm is inserted into your uterus through the cervix at the time of ovulation.

Surgery – in some cases, men and women need corrective surgery if their reproductive organs are causing fertility problems. Such corrective surgical options can help without the need for other infertility treatments.

Lifestylechanges – instead of infertility treatment, your fertility specialist may suggest a series of lifestyle changes that may be causing the problems. These may include reducing weight, cutting down on alcohol and stopping smoking.
