Today, many couples resort to various methods with the dream of having a child. In 35 percent of couples who want to have a baby, both male and female disorders are encountered. According to studies, the number of couples receiving treatment to have children is increasing day by day. Answering the question of whether women who want to have children should first apply for vaccination or in vitro fertilization, Prof. Gynecology and Obstetrics. Dr. Yücel Karaman, “Vaccination or IVF treatment is determined according to the needs of the patient. In order to apply the vaccination method, attention should be paid to sperm motility in men and egg production in women. If the vaccination has been done 2 or 3 times and pregnancy has not been achieved, in vitro fertilization should be applied.”
“Women aged 35 and over should try IVF”
With advancing age, the ovarian reserve in women decreases. Therefore, stating that more in vitro fertilization method should be preferred in women aged 35 and over, Prof. Dr. Yücel Karaman, “As the age progresses, the egg reserve in the woman decreases. In women aged 35 and over, the success rate of vaccination treatment begins to decrease as age progresses. Therefore, in IVF treatment, the ovarian reserves of the woman should be evaluated first. On the third day of menstruation, the patient should be told about the in vitro fertilization process by performing hormone tests and looking at the ovarian reserves with ultrasonography.
“Sperm motility should be taken into consideration during vaccination”
Stating that the vaccination method should be applied in case of not getting pregnant naturally for about 1 year, Prof. Dr. Karaman said, “If couples have unprotected sexual intercourse and cannot achieve pregnancy, they can apply for vaccination treatment. Sperm motility and number in the semen analysis made to the man in the vaccination treatment are important for the treatment. During the ovulation period, when fertility is at its highest, couples have a healthy child thanks to the vaccination method, which is applied by placing the sperm selected from the spouse by injection into the uterus.
“In vaccination, sperm is injected into the uterus of the woman and administered. If the sperm fertilizes the egg, the embryo is formed, and when the embryo implants in the uterus, pregnancy occurs. In fact, we can call it a natural method. However, although the in vitro fertilization process seems similar to vaccination, fertilization is carried out in a laboratory environment. The eggs taken from the mother-to-be are combined with the sperms taken from the father-to-be in the laboratory and left to be fertilized. The healthy embryo obtained is placed in the uterus.
