The specialized centers of infertility treatment in Iran, such as the Royan Institute, are well known and renowned worldwide. Since 1988, thousands of children have been born in Iran through various methods including IVF, IUI, IMSI, ICSI.
When is a couple considered infertile?
According to the World Health Organization, infertility means being unable to get pregnant after 12 months of unprotected intercourse. So if a couple does not get their first baby, it does not mean that they are generally infertile, as women are usually at a 20% chance of pregnancy during each menstrual period.
Causes of Infertility
Late marriage, delayed childbearing, old age (especially in women), drug and alcohol abuse, smoking, unhealthy nutrition, inactivity and obesity, stress and depression, overheating and illness Infection are all factors affecting the couple fertility. But in the meantime, the role of some diseases and disorders is far more comprehensive.
Causes of Infertility in Women
Two main causes of infertility in women:
Ovulation disorder: 39% of women are infertile because they either do not ovulate or ovulate irregularly. (Irregularity or lack of menstruation indicates ovulation disorder.) It is not possible to get pregnant without ovulation.
Uterine Dysfunction: Closed uterine tubes and the consequent failure of sperm to reach the egg are another common cause of female infertility.
Causes of Infertility in Men
Sperm disorders such as low quantity, lack of puberty, abnormal shape, and inability to move properly can impair men's fertility.
Also, the closure of the sperm outflow tubes (which can be congenital or infections can cause closure), varicocele, and other factors such as premature ejaculation can affect male infertility.
Sometimes a couple may be diagnosed healthy after medical tests but still have no children. In these cases, they should be treated for unknown factors.
Infertility treatment in Iran
The first Iranian infertility treatment center was established in Yazd in 1989. One year later, the first child was born at the center using IVF. To date, more than 10,000 babies have been born at Yazd's Institute of Reproductive Sciences. 5,000 of these babies were born through IVF.
Then in 1991, Royan Institute was established in Tehran. Royan Institute is one of the poles of infertility treatment in Iran and has many honors in the field of infertility and stem cell treatment under its name.
Over the past two decades, Iran has made significant progress in the treatment of infertility. There are over 100 specialized infertility treatment centers in Iran.
During these years, Iranian doctors treated thousands of infertile couples who wished to have children.
Iran is one of the most advanced countries in infertility treatment.
Costs of infertility treatment in Iran
The cost of treatment varies depending on the method used and the amount of medication needed and other things such as where the couple lives to repeat the treatment process. For example, the cost of IVF treatment in Iran for an entire treatment cycle is $ 2000 on average. In the United States, that figure rises to $ 20,000. The low costs, coupled with Iranian doctors' knowledge and significant advances in infertility treatment, have motivated foreign couples to come to Iran for treatment.
An important tip: The age of the woman and the timely onset of treatment process plays a significant role in the success of treatment. If treatment is delayed, the drugs will not be effective and the chance of childbearing will be reduced. The sooner you start the healing process, the more likely you are to have children.
