IVF fertility treatmentLong protocol step-by-step

The first step is The Fertility Test, and the doctor reviews your medical history with you. Next, the woman has a gynaecological examination of the uterus and ultrasound of the ovaries. In some cases, it is also necessary to examine the fallopian tube function. In the man, we do a semen analysis. The doctor takes samples of hormones and chromosomes if necessary. The results are ready the same day.

Step 1: IVF fertility treatment Start-up

Start-up is 1-4 weeks after the first review with a doctor and nurse. You contact us via the patient portal on the day the woman gets her period so that we can confirm the start of the various medications. She first starts with a nasal spray. The nasal spray resets the body's natural hormone production in advance of the hormone treatment in the next step.

Step 2: IVF fertility treatment Start-up hormones

Approximately 20 days after starting nasal spray, hormonal stimulation begins. 10 days after starting with hormones, we schedule an ultrasound. Then we see how many eggs are maturing and which day is best for egg retrieval. You will also be informed about further stimulation and when you need to take an ovulation syringe.

Step 3: IVF fertility treatmentEgg retrieval

Egg retrieval is between 24-34 days after starting hormone stimulation. We retrieve the eggs and store them in petri dishes. To ensure the best possible natural fertilization, we also process sperm samples.

Step 4: IVF fertility treatmentInsertion

We insert the embryo 2-5 days after egg retrieval. We select the embryo that shows the most promising development. Often we have several good embryos from which to choose. We can freeze these for later return if necessary.

Step 5: IVF fertility treatment Results

The big day! 15 days after egg retrieval, you take a regular pregnancy test at home and let us know the result.
