IVF Treatment in Turkey, Istanbul

“ Everything you can imagine is real”
Pablo Picasso

Turkey is one of the most preferred destinations to go for an IVF cycle nowadays, the major reason being the reasonable cost of the treatment. Indeed , the cost of an IVF cycle varies between 2500 and 8500 Euros in Turkey; the large gap being due to modulators such as drug prices, the length of stay in Turkey, the city where you will be treated, and most importantly to the clinical diagnosis of the couple.

    What is an IVF Treatment?

    Infertility is defined as an inability to achieve a pregnancy within one year despite having regular unprotected sexual intercourse. The diagnosis has to be made by a gynecologist specialized in assisted reproductive technologies (ART). However, main reasons are ovulatory dysfunctions, poor ovarian reserve, advanced maternal age or male factors such low sperm count or poor sperm quality. 

    In vitro fertilization (IVF)  refers to a long treatment journey that will pick up mature oocytes and retrieve sperm, female and male reproductive cells, to allow fertilization or bring them together outside of the body in a laboratory environment.  IVF treatment is now much simpler and more effortless thanks to recent technological advancements.

    How is IVF done step by step?

    An IVF treatment consists in the fertilization of oocytes collected from the candidate mother by the husband sperm  in the laboratory and the transfer of the “best quality” embryo to the mother’s womb called uterus or uterine cavity.  The IVF process has important steps that should not be skipped and completed fully:

      1. In the first step of the IVF cycle, oocyte production is stimulated by hormonal therapy. This phase of the treatment will last around 8 to 10 days and will be followed by oocyte pick up (OPU), a procedure performed under anesthesia where oocytes will be collected by an embryologist working in the IVF laboratory. 
      2. In a second parallel step, a perm sample is taken from the father-to-be on the same day as the egg collection process. The collected sperm is quickly delivered to the laboratory.
      3. In a third step, collected oocytes  are fertilized, in laboratory conditions, by the sperm collected from the spouse. Oocytes are, in the vast majority of cases, injected during a procedure called ICSI or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Fertilization occurs 16 to 18 hours following the injection. During the following days of embryo culture, some embryos will show a better division pattern thus better quality and will be chosen for embryo transfer by the embryologist.
      4. In a forth step, the best quality embryo expected to have the better pregnancy potential will be transferred by the gynecologist to the uterine cavity. 
      5. In the last step, around two weeks following embryo transfer, a pregnancy test is done to determine whether implantation has occurred and gestation has begun.

    In the Republic of Turkey, IVF is not performed for couples, who aren’t officially married.

    IVF Treatment Reviews


    What are the payment plan options for IVF Treatment in Turkey?

    Various payment packages are available for IVF treatment . You can pay by credit card, which is one of the 3 types of payment packages, by transferring to a bank account or in cash. These payments may include treatment, accommodation, transfer, and hospital expenses other than your flight.

    Is IVF Treatment covered by insurance plans?

    Most health insurance plans do not cover the cost of IVF treatment. Plans that include IVF treatment coverage or offer it as additional coverage are not common among insurers. You should do your research well to make sure you get the right coverage and financial aid for your IVF treatment.

    Why is IVF Treatment Cheap in Turkey?

    The reason why IVF treatment is cheaper in Turkey is the exchange rate difference. Although the cost of this process is higher in developed countries such as England, America, and Ireland, service quality is not compromised in Turkey. Compared to other countries, it is much more affordable in Turkey with full package prices.

    Can I get finance for IVF Treatment?

    In general, clinics and health institutions that make IVF treatment do not offer financing options. The reason why the finance option is generally not available is that patients usually choose transfer, credit card, or cash as payment methods.

    What is the death rate of IVF Treatment in Turkey?

    In general, IVF treatment poses nearly no risk of death for prospective parents. In particular, 42 deaths per 100,000 IVF pregnancies were recorded, as opposed to six deaths per 100,000 pregnancies in the general population. However, in some risky situations, IVF may fail or miscarriage may occur at some stages after embryo transfer.

    Is There an Age Limit for IVF in Turkey?

    As in many reproductive centers around the world, in Turkey, the maternal age limit to start an IVF treatment is 43-44. This limit can sometimes rise to 45 in some cases. The higher the maternal age , the lower the efficiency of the IVF procedure, and the more likely it will fail.
