The application of the in vitro fertilization technique is considered by always analyzing the causes of infertility and chances for natural conception with the existing cause of infertility, a woman’s age, duration of relationship and previously used infertility treatment methods.

  • Indications for in vitro fertilization include various causes of infertility, such as:
  • fallopian tubal factor (e.g. permanently damaged fallopian tube, impaired function of fallopian tubes with maintained patency),
  • male infertility factor (absence or abnormal number of motile sperm cells),
  • endometriosis,
  • hormone disorders,
  • failed attempts at intrauterine insemination (max. 6 attempts by 35 years of age, max. 4 over 35 years of age),
  • unexplained infertility.
  • In fertile couples, in vitro fertilization is indicated when:
  • one of the partners is a HIV or HCV carrier,
  • the couple is a carrier of genetic anomalies which cause severe and irreversible changes
  • in offspring and the preimplantation diagnosis allows to avoid the decision on pregnancy termination,
  • the woman starts anti-cancer therapy and there is high likelihood that the applied treatment will cause irreversible damage to ovaries.
