Successful IVF (in-vitro fertilization) in Israel: testimony of a young mother on the efficient fertility treatment

IVF and ICSI in Israel – intracytoplasmic sperm injection

 

As told by Olga, iMER medical coordinator:

In the end of 2012 the following e-mail message came to us at the Hadassah MC from a woman in Ukraine:

Hello! We have been trying to conceive for three years. We are going to come see you for a medical examination. We would like to be seen by Professor Simon. And we are prepared, if that is necessary, to undergo IVF. We’re ready for travel in early spring. Please let us know all the conditions. Respectfully, A.

 

Once we got that letter, we sent a request right away to Professor Alex Simon, the head of the In-vitro Fertilization Department in the Hadassah MC, and set up dates for appointments and examinations. In May A. and her spouse came to Israel and began the IVF procedure, coupled with ICSI. It is a rather novel method of extra-corporal fertilization that is used when IVF alone is not sufficient for conception. This method includes injection of a pre-selected viable sperm directly into the egg, preformed by the doctor.

 

In the Hadassah MC this procedure’s usual success rate is 35% (just as for IVF itself), but in the case of A. and her husband, it was 100% successful. They got pregnant on the first cycle; already in June ultrasonogram revealed a baby! The pregnancy was progressing normally. There were no indications to stay in Israel, and the future parents left for home with detailed recommendations and advice from Professor Simon. And in March I received the feedback letter from A. Though during my time working with patients from many different countries I had already had a chance to receive such letters, I rejoiced as if it were the first time!

Of course it’s a great compliment that A. recommended our specialists to her close friend. Doesn’t that show thar she trusts us wholeheartedly? I think it does!
