It is a highly recommended treatment to overcome male infertility problems.
It is similar to the IVF while the only difference is that instead of mixing the sperm with the eggs and leaving them to fertilize, the fertility specialist injects a single sperm into the centre of an egg, maximizing the chances of fertilization taking place.
The treatment makes pregnancy possible for women who might not otherwise be able to get pregnant using their own eggs, a case that is often associated with older maternal age.
The procedure is similar to standard IVF, except that the eggs are sourced from a friend or from an anonymous donor or an egg bank.
The donated eggs are fertilized with the partner’s sperm in a laboratory dish and then the fertilized embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus.
This contemporary IVF practice is very effective and it has proved to dramatically increase the success percentage of IVF by 15-90%.
It is low cost and almost painless and is suggested to patients who have performed IVF on another clinic.
Dr. Kalampokas is one of the very few Greek researchers/authors included in the most important meta-analysis database in the sector of IVF, called Cochrane.
