In Vitro Fertilization in South Korea

The Ultimate Guide to In Vitro Fertilization in South Korea

In Vitro Fertilization in South Korea is the most popular of the fertility treatments on offer here. It is little wonder, with first-class medical facilities and savings of around 60% compared to equivalent treatment at home, that foreign patients are traveling here.

The inability to conceive may be caused by a number of factors. The issues may be due to the man, or the woman, but sometimes the causes are unknown. There are certainly a number of established centers throughout the country with qualified and experienced doctors who are able to conduct comprehensive tests to establish a diagnosis as to why you may have fertility problems, and get you started with the right course of treatment to overcome them.

It may be that time away from the stresses and strains of everyday home life can help you to conceive – some couples have found that being on holiday has worked for them – and South Korea certainly has its fair share of beautiful beaches to help you unwind.

What is the procedure for IVF, and how long does it take?

Each IVF cycle of treatment can be broken down into around five main steps, for which you will need to stay in Thailand for between 7 and 10 days to complete.

1: Medication

Egg production will be stimulated with medication, and ovaries will be monitored with blood tests and scans to check for development of eggs.

2: Egg Collection

Once developed, a minor surgical procedure will be used to collect the eggs.

3: Sperm Collection

The male will need to donate a sperm sample

4: Combine sperm and eggs in the laboratory

The eggs and sperm are combined in a laboratory in a process called insemination. Kept at the right conditions to encourage fertilization, they are monitored for signs of cell division. Once this happens the eggs are deemed to be fertilized.

5: Transfer Embryos

3-5 days after fertilization, the embryos (the name for fertilized eggs) are transferred in a painless procedure to the uterus.
