IVF Treatments in Spain
Are you seeking to achieve pregnancy and you find yourself in one of the following situations?
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    After one year of frequent sexual intercourse not resulting in pregnancy (six months if the woman is over 35).
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    Relevant history (gynecology and andrology): genital or abdominal surgery, infections of the pelvis, endometriosis, long-standing menstrual abnormalities, etc.
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    Partner with two or more miscarriages.
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    Carriers of a hereditary disease.
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    Individuals wishing to preserve eggs or sperm due to cancer treatment or for personal reasons.
  • keyboard_arrow_right
    Women who decide to have children by themselves or couples made up of two women.
Patients with any of the aforementioned factors are advised to seek guidance from a specialist in assisted reproduction. During the initial consultation we will carry out an in-depth study of your situation with a view to designing the most appropriate treatment. This will involve mapping out the steps that need to be taken to recover an appropriate state of health and either eliminate negative lifestyle factors or bring them under control. You will be given a proposal containing the necessary diagnostic tests or previous treatment for certain pathologies.

We, at France Surgery, work with Quironsalud Hospitals in Spain for IVF Treatments. Spain is one of the TOP global destinations for fertility procedures, with over 53% European Egg donation cycles that are Spanish. The reasons for this combines the Spanish laws and regulations known for fairness, anonymity and compensation, the Spanish culture which is the world's absolute leader in all donations & Spain's high fertility centers.

Treatments & Techniques
    • keyboard_arrow_rightIN VITRO FERTILIZATION (IVF) / ICSI
    • keyboard_arrow_rightARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION
      Artificial Insemination consists of placing a select sample of sperm previously treated in the laboratory to optimize viability inside the woman's uterus to increase the chances of successful fertilization. To increase the possibilities of impregnation, the ovaries are treated with hormones and ovulation is monitored to pinpoint the best moment for insemination.

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE ?

      1. Ovarian stimulation
      2. Insemination

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      With your partner's sperm
      - Mild male-factor infertility.
      - Cervical-factor fertility and abnormalities in the cervix.
      - Couples with unexplained infertility.
      - Couples in which the mother-to-be has ovulatory dysfunction.
      - Vaginismus.
      - Erectile dysfunction.

      With sperm from a donor
      - Poor sperm quality or low sperm count.
      - Single mothers-to-be or same-sex parents.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      Artificial Insemination has a success rate that sometimes tops 30%, though this rate varies based on the woman's age and the reason the procedure is being performed.
    • keyboard_arrow_rightEGG DONATION
      The egg-donation program is an assisted reproductive technique in which a female donor supplies a female gamete (oocyte) to be implanted in a woman who wishes to give birth.

      Anonymous women who meet a series of requirements (e.g., age, state of health) give their eggs over so that other women who have difficulty conceiving may have a chance at motherhood.

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      Ovarian failure: inability to produce eggs.
      Poor response to assisted reproductive treatments.
      Repeated IVF failure: In these cases, the ovaries respond appropriately, producing more than three mature oocytes, but no successful pregnancy is attained despite a sufficient number of IVF cycles (normally 3 or 4).
      Advanced age.
      Serious genetic abnormalities that may affect a mother's offspring.
      Repeated miscarriages.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      Egg donation normally has a higher success rate than other assisted reproductive techniques.

    • keyboard_arrow_rightFERTILITY PRESERVATION
      This technique makes it possible to preserve gametes (oocytes and sperm) so that they maintain their biological capacity and viability, thus allowing women to postpone pregnancy with a reasonable level of guarantee..

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
      Fertility preservation techniques available through Quirónsalud:
      Egg vitrification(link a apartado de vitrificación)
      Semen cryopreservation

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      For patients who are at risk of loss of ovarian function.
      In oncology patients (men and women) who must receive radiation or chemotherapy.
      For women who wish to postpone motherhood.
      In young patients who have a weak response to ovarian stimulation, vitrification makes it possible to produce an ample number of eggs so that an embryo can be transferred at a later time.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      This technique has a good success rate for certain types of women when a sufficient number of eggs is obtained, among other factors.

    • keyboard_arrow_rightEGG AND EMBRYO VITRIFICATION
      This creates the possibility to safely preserve female gametes and embryos for a prolonged period of time. Thanks to this technique, patients may have children after receiving cancer treatment or postpone parenthood for any reason.

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
      Vitrification is a process by which eggs are stored at very low temperature through a process that prevents ice-crystal formation by causing an extreme and rapid rise in the egg's viscosity.
      The eggs are then protected and immersed in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -196°C.
      The technique is simple and produces good outcomes. It can be used to store both eggs and human embryos, which is why it has many applications.
      Egg extraction is done according to the same methods used for IVF treatment: ovary stimulation and egg extraction. Afterward, rather than fertilizing the eggs, they are vitrified and stored

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      To preserve surplus embryos after an IVF-ICSI cycle.
      For women who are about to undergo cancer treatment and wish to preserve their ability to have children.
      When a woman wishes to postpone motherhood.
      For women with a low ovarian reserve.
      In patients for whom freezing an embryo creates an ethical dilemma.
      In patients who, after having IVF treatment, produce a high number of eggs and for ethical reasons are opposed to freezing them.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      When the eggs come from a young woman (35 years or younger), storage is a fantastic option, as more than 90% of the oocytes survive the process

    • keyboard_arrow_rightMACS (MAGNETIC ACTIVATED CELL SORTING)
      This is a sperm-preparation technique designed to select sperm that are not damaged or programmed to die (apoptic sperm cells) so that this sperm can be used in assisted reproductive techniques, thus increasing potential for fertilization

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
      MACS makes it possible to immunomagnetically select sperm that has intact DNA. Healthy sperm is separated from sperm that is dead or has fragmented DNA.

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      When it is suspected that DNA fragmentation in sperm is substantially linked to poor outcomes reached with prior assisted reproductive techniques.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      MACS, which separates healthy sperm from damaged sperm, has been shown in some studies to increase the success rate by up to 10-15%.

    • keyboard_arrow_rightPREIMPLANTATION GENETIC DIAGNOSIS (PGD)
      This diagnostic tool enables us to study the embryo for a particular condition before it is transferred to the uterus. This prevents certain inherited genetic disorders or abnormalities that may compromise embryo viability from being passed on.

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
      To carry out a PGD, embryos must first be formed in the laboratory, meaning the mother-to-be must have an assisted reproductive technique (IVF or ICS) performed. The study is done on one cell from this embryo. A hole is made in the outer layer of an embryo 3 days after fertilization (when it has 6-8 cells). One cell (blastomere) is removed through this opening to determine whether it is normal or abnormal. The embryos found to be appropriate are selected for transfer.

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      Study types:
      Aneuploidy screening
      Chromosomal rearrangement
      Sex selection
      Monogenetical disorders

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      The PGD program's overall success rate per transfer is 20-30%, although these percentages vary based on what motivated the test.

    • keyboard_arrow_rightTIME-LAPSE SYSTEM FOR EMBRYO INCUBATION
      This advanced incubation system uses sophisticated imaging procedures that allow us to see how embryos fertilized in the IVF lab progress—from the very moment of fertilization until they are transferred to the uterus—without having to remove the embryos from the incubator to check them.

      WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
      This sophisticated laboratory equipment brings together an incubator, microscope, and camera. We feature the most advanced time-lapse systems available, making it possible to obtain images of embryos at regular intervals throughout their development, which is to say, from the moment of fertilization until embryo transfer, thus creating a video from the "beginning of life."

      WHEN IS IT RECOMMENDED ?

      For all types of patients who undergo an assisted reproductive treatment.

      HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT ?

      This technology can help increase the chances of achieving pregnancy, as it avoids handling of the embryo outside of the incubator.
