IVF in Iran, similar to other parts of the world, is one of the principal methods used to assist fertility and overcome a range of fertility issues. Infertility treatment in Iran is conducted in different clinics. Best IVF centers in Iran include Mom, Avicenna, Rouyesh, and Royan.
What is In vitro fertilization (IVF)?
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology, which consists of a complex series of procedures that involves the fertilization of eggs with sperm in the laboratory and transferring the embryo to the uterus.
After stimulating the ovaries with injected Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), mature eggs are collected (retrieved) from the mother or egg donor and fertilized in the laboratory with the biological father's or donated sperm to form the embryo. The embryo or embryos are grown in the laboratory for about five days and then transferred to the biological mother’s or carrier’s uterus in a Pap smear-like procedure. IVF in Iran is performed under the supervision of a team of specialists from beginning to end and assists the couples with conceiving their own children.

When is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) needed?
As mentioned, IVF is most intended to help fertility and treat infertility, as well as, preventing genetic disorders. However, your fertility specialist may suggest trying less-invasive treatment options before going through an IVF procedure. In Vitro Fertilization is also recommended in women over the age of forty to enhance their chances of fertility.
IVF in Iran and other parts of the world is advised if you or your partner suffers from:
Fallopian tube injury or blockage
The fallopian tube is the route by which eggs travel to the uterus.
In ovarian disorders, the number of healthy eggs available for fertilization may be insufficient or infrequent.
Endometriosis, which means the growth of tissue similar to the lining of the uterus in external areas such as the fallopian tubes, can also affect fertility.
Fibroids are benign tumors that may interfere with the implantation of a fertilized egg. They are common in women in their 30s and 40s.
Previous tubal sterilization or removal:
Tubal ligation is a sterilization procedure performed on people to permanently prevent them from getting pregnant. However, performing IVF in Iran in reputable clinics will help you to conceive again.
Impaired sperm production or function:
If sperm is low in concentration, poor in mobility, or malformed, it may not be able to fertilize the egg. IVF is the answer in this case.
When the root cause of a couple's infertility is not clear, IVF can also help.
A genetic disorder:
In the case of a specific genetic disorder being detected in one of the couples, IVF is performed to ensure the child’s health, and the embryos that don't contain identified problems will transfer to the uterus.
Fertility preservation before undergoing damaging procedures like chemotherapy:
Cancer treatments can damage fertility. harvesting healthy eggs before starting treatment and freezing them for future use is an option. The frozen egg then is transferred to the uterus after fertilization.
