Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most popular procedures performed by a fertility specialist in Turkey

There are two types of procedures performed by the fertility specialist in Turkey one is Diagnostic procedure and the second is Surgical procedure.

So, to begin with, Diagnostic procedure, there are six types as follows

  • Ovarian Reserve Assessment- Often used as a part of an initial assessment of fertility to evaluate the supply of eggs that remain in the ovaries. This examination involves blood tests to check the follicle hormone stimulating (FSH), oestradiol (E2), and antimuller hormone (AMH) hormones, along with an ultrasound to check the antral follicle count.

  • Hysterosalpingography (HSG)- This X-ray helps one to assess the Fallopian and uterine cavities. In this test, the cervix is injected with a sterile liquid that has a dye for contrast. X-rays are taken to track blockage flow to assess if the fallopian tubes are patent. This procedure is short and can cause mild to moderate soreness.

  • Saline Infusion Sonohysterogram- This ultrasound evaluates the form of the womb and can detect anomalies, such as uterine polyps and fibroids. It cannot define whether the fallopian tubes are open. In this technique sterile fluid is injected into the uterus and, a vaginal ultrasound is done.

  • Follicular Study- Follicular Ultrasounds Study is used to monitor follicle formation, measure the size of the dominant follicle or follicles and identify them. The timing of ovulation also helps to determine it. This test is carried out in our office in the mid-cycle.

  • Hysteroscopy- This technique helps to examine and identify polyps and fibroids in the uterine cavity. It cannot decide whether the fallopian tubes are open. This examination allows the doctor to see the uterus comfortably through a small fiber-optic camera in the uterine cavity. This is done in a hospital instead of in the diagnostic center.

  • Semen Analysis- Since male infertility makes up 40% of cases, semen analysis for most infertility couples is suggested. This semen test analyses the concentration of the sperm (number), motility (movement), and morphology (shape). Sometimes because of many factors, these values are fluctuating.

This treatment is routinely done for women who have been assigned to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or egg freezing. A small needle with ultrasound is gently guided to the follicles and the eggs are sucked in and extracted out of the ovary.

  • Varicocelectomy- In the scrotum, the presence of varicose veins can adversely influence sperm production. Varicose veins are ligated or removed surgically through a small incision in the groin region. The urology collaborator performs this operation.

  • Vasectomy Reversal/ Vasovasostomy/Vasoepididymostomy- This procedure reconnects the vas deferens through a small incision in the testicle, enabling sperm to once again enter the seminal fluid.
