At Embryolab, we know that low fertility requires an individualised approach. The important thing is that every couple facing fertility issues, will undergo the appropriate examinations, on the basis of which we select personalised treatments and methods to deal with low fertility.
We apply personalised reproductive medicine, and adapt the innovation in each case separately so as to achieve the greatest benefits.
Treating infertility requires a personalized approach
The desire for pregnancy after 40.
We place great importance on preventive health checks, when looking at a pregnancy after 40, with emphasis on the mastological, hematological and cardiological evaluation of the woman, prior to starting fertility treatment.
We provide a detailed description of the choices in the treatment protocol based on the likelihood of success and the treatment type.
Because of the increased difficulty of a twin pregnancy over 40, we provide the choice of embryo transfer of one embryo at the blastocyst stage, with the option of cryopreservation of the other embryos for future use.
Step 2Treatment preparation - administration of supplements and vitamins
Step 3Embryo collection in successive cycles - Embryo cryopreservation
Step 5Fertility prognosis
Low oocyte reserves.
Women with reduced oocyte reserves, either due to age, endometriosis or occasionally due to an unknown cause are treated at Embryolab through applying modern diagnostic means (blood/ultrasound tests).
We place great emphasis on treatment preparation, with administration of specialised supplements and vitamins so as to improve both the quality and quantity of the oocytes.
We rely on the significant effectiveness of our lab's cryopreservation program, which permits oocyte collection from successive cycles, thus creating a satisfactory total number of embryos before proceeding to embryo selection and embryo transfer.
We focus on fertility prognosis counselling for each case separately.
We select the cycle in which the treatment will take place with great care, as each cycle has a different likelihood of producing oocytes after treatment.
Oocyte donation program
We provide full information and counselling for gamete donation, both for candidate donors as well as for interested recipients.
We assure the necessary psychological support for the interested parties in the presence of an experienced psychologist, specialised in low fertility.
We scrupulously screen the candidate egg donors, with particular emphasis on their clinical history, hereditary diseases' check and family background. We also carry out a karyotype test. Each candidate donor initially undergoes a psychometric evaluation in order to exclude any predisposition for any psychological condition.
We have a wealth of experience with our oocyte donation program. We show respect and sensitivity when it comes to approaching donors and have a particularly high rate of successful births.
Treatment without hyper stimulation, fewer multiple pregnancies
We strive to extend embryo cultivation to the most dynamic stage of blastocyst culture in order to reduce the need for the placement of many embryos.
We check your oocyte reserves by employing the most up-to-date hormone tests (Anti-Mullerian hormone), as well as with the specialised Antral Follicle Count.
We increase the likelihood of pregnancy by shifting embryo transfer to a second cycle which allows the placement of the embryos in optimal conditions in the endometrial cavity.
We have a long experience in cycle division with scheduled embryo preservation and embryo transfer to a second time.
We prudently recommend the number of embryos during embryo transfer, emphasizing on the option of transferring one single embryo.
We focus on women who have a greater likelihood of hyper stimulation based on their history, the presence of polycystic ovaries, or a previous attempt at IVF, as well as the production of a large number of oocytes.
We have an extremely effective embryo cryopreservation program which allows the IVF treatment cycle to be broken down into two stages: one for egg collection and one for embryo transfer the following month and, in between the two, cryopreservation of the embryos that we created takes place. This way, the likelihood of any ovarian hyper stimulation is reduced to a minimum.
Breaking the cycle up into two stages is particularly effective and frequently, more effective than completing treatment in the same cycle.
We insist on timely counselling in cases such as the likelihood of a multiple pregnancy and the increased risks of multiple pregnancies.
Repeated unsuccessful IVF attempts
We ensure the best possible psychological support.
We inform you about the likelihood of becoming pregnant at another attempt, based on previous history.
We pay particular attention to the checks already carried out, and recommend further checks and tests which might increase the chances of success.
The core to our counselling is the focus on diagnostic examinations and treatment protocols, internationally recognised with clear documentation.
We also inform you of empirical therapies, which may be applied once the positive and negative parameters have been subjected to detailed analysis.
We particularly focus on: the importance of choosing the cycle when the next attempt is to be scheduled, the preparation of the endometrium, the laboratory conditions for fertilisation and embryo culture, and finally on the embryo transfer technique.
We perform the most advanced testicular biopsy method, the Micro-TESE, which provides the greatest probability of locating spermatozoa in a man with azoospermia.
Fertility success rates with spermatozoa deriving from a testicular biopsy exceed 50%.
We have a team of specialized clinical embryologists and urological surgeons, experts in andrology and low fertility.
Our scientific team’s experience in azoospermia exceeds 1000 testicular biopsies.
Embryolab indeed now constitutes a reference Clinic regarding azoospermia and testicular biopsies, both in Greece and abroad.
