ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

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.

Egg Donation

It is a treatment for couples who are unable to conceive due to a low ovarian reserve or poor egg quality.

The procedure involves using the eggs of a donor to conceive a child and allow the infertile couple to experience the joys of pregnancy and childbirth.

According to Greek legislation, all donors must be under 35 years old with a normal medical history and test results.

Steps of the process:

  • A first online meeting with the doctor in order to discuss details about the donor program and then the woman begins the preparation of the endometrium at her own country.
  • Around the 10th day of the protocol she sends a picture of the endometrium done by ultrasound.
  • The couple then arrive at the clinic for the fertilization of the donor’s eggs with the fresh sperm.

  • Ovarian stimulation
  • Egg retrieval
  • Fertilization
  • Embryotransfer
  • Embryo cryopreservation

Oocyte retrieval is scheduled at the clinic, 36-40 hours later.

Egg Freezing

Egg freezing: the way women can organize their fertility plan and their life.

Egg freezing is ideal if:

  • you suffer from early menopause
  • have a genetic disease
  • you are single or
  • you don’t want to conceive any time soon.

To prepare for egg freezing, patients will undergo the same first phase of hormone injections as IVF patients.

Dr. Papanikolaou performs IVF, IVF with egg donation, and egg freezing treatments with great success rates.

Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy

Ovarian Rejuvenation (PRP): a chance to have a baby without donor eggs.

PRP harnesses the natural biological components of a patient’s blood.

2 stages of PRP:

  • Preparation of the PRP which lasts about 30 minutes
  • Injection of the PRP into the two ovaries. In ovarian rejuvenation, PRP is directly injected into a patient’s ovaries with her own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), infusing the ovaries with proteins rich in growth factors and stem-cell chemoattractants.

Dr. Papanikolaou usually uses 3-4ml for each ovary.

Risk for infection or rejection is very low.

Dr. Papanikolaou also uses a more targeted approach, called enPLAF PRP.

EnPLAF is:

  • less painful
  • has a higher concentration of factors
  • it can be frozen or refrigerated for future use
  • it has an excellent shelf life
