Iată că se întâmplă însă să te lovești de mici probleme medicale. În cazul meu, a durat 5 ani să le rezolvăm.

I wish you to live only moments like the ones I am living now! Thank you, Simo, for your special way of comforting me and of working with me! ''
After 2 months, 2 magic lines
After 5 years of fighting infertility, Ioana and Marius arrived at Columna Medical Center and met Dr. Cezara Bucur. Ioana confesses "For the first time I felt that a doctor looked at me in relation to what my body could really do, that she did not lead me on with false promises, but that she knew what needed to be done to help me, which was all that mattered. My treatment was adapted based on ultrasound and tests, I received clear explanations, I understood step by step what was going on, and I felt that she was doing her best to get as much as possible of what my body offered." And, 2 months after the first consultation, two magic lines appeared on the pregnancy test, lines that they have dreamed about for so many years.

Happy Stories: Tales of happy parents!
"My story begins like this ... I was 40 years old and I was not a mother yet. I went to the doctor again and, after many tests and investigations, I found out that I could not become pregnant by natural ways. The only way to get a pregnancy was through fertilization. This is how I came to Columna Clinic, where I met Dr. Manolea. We talked, she told us what needed to be done and we got to work. I started the treatment, three ovarian stimulations, three collection punctures, and the result? .... four embryos. We were very happy, we were looking forward to the embryo transfer, which took place. Unfortunately, the pregnancy did not catch on. It was a big disappointment, but we continued. There was a break, followed by the second embryo transfer .... Ten days of tension, stress, impatience .......

FAQs

1. What is the difference between in vitro fertilization and natural pregnancy?

Any pregnancy begins with the union of the female sex cell (oocyte) and the male sex cell (sperm), a process called fertilization. Their union generates a unique cell that contains genetic material from both parents, which through successive divisions becomes an embryo and eventually a child. The fertilization process usually takes place in the fallopian tubes, where the oocyte reaches the ovaries after ovulation, and the sperm after sexual intercourse. In the case of in vitro fertilization, this process takes place outside the woman's body, in the fertilization laboratory, and then the resulting embryo is transferred to the mother's uterus. The in vitro fertilization therefore only changes the places where fertilization occurs and the first stages of the embryo development, then the pregnancy takes place normally.

The success rates for in vitro fertilization: 41 - 43% for women under 35, 33 - 36% for women aged 35 – 37, 23 - 27% for women aged 38 – 40, 13 - 18% for women aged 41 and for women aged over 41.

The specialist discusses and consults both partners in order to assess their health, risk factors and issues that can cause infertility. If no cause of infertility is determined at this stage, more specific tests will be needed. For women, they include hormonal tests, ovulation monitoring, hysterosalpingography or laparoscopy. For men, the first test is the spermogram.

The ovarian reserve is the ability of the ovaries to produce eggs to be fertilized, the end result being a healthy pregnancy. The ovarian reserve refers not only to the number of eggs, but also to their quality. The patients with decreased ovarian reserve have a lower pregnancy rate and a higher abortion rate. In general, the most successful treatment option in such cases is IVF with donated eggs.

The main diseases where in vitro fertilization is indicated and works are: diseases of the fallopian tubes (with obstruction or sequelae of the tubes), for example reduction of sperm count or motility), endometriosis, ovulation-related disorders (e.g. in the case of polycystic ovaries), increased values of sperm DNA fragmentation, infertility of untold / unknown cause.

At Columna Medical Center you will find a unique program to stimulate your natural fertility - Fertistim. Fertistim addresses both partners, whether or not they suffer from infertility. The program is recommended for any couple who wants a healthy pregnancy and is even more important for couples over the age of 35, where natural fertility is low. It also plays an important role in the assisted human reproduction procedures, where it has a major impact, with an increase of up to 50% in the success rates. Last but not least, the program is designed for couples who have suffered abortion in the past or for those who have had repeated embryo implantation failures.

Unlike the Standard IVF, ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection) involves the direct intraovular injection of a single sperm by microinjection. ICSI is a specialized in vitro fertilization procedure used on couples with male infertility.

There are no differences between children conceived naturally and those conceived via IVF in terms of the percentage of malformations, intelligence, physical development. However, multiple pregnancies via IVF are more common (around 25%).

The risk of fetal abnormalities with IVF is similar to the normal pregnancies (3 - 5%) and increases with age.

The anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) test tells you how likely you are to get pregnant, as this is a significant marker of the ovarian reserve. The anti-müllerian hormone test is easy to do and involves taking a blood sample.
