When it comes to surrogacy at Dunya IVF Clinic, you are allowed to bring your own surrogate from your own family. If you don’t have your own surrogate, the clinic can refer you to a surrogacy agency abroad.

Dunya IVF Clinic - FAQ
What is the average cost of IVF with your own eggs at Dunya IVF?

The average cost of undergoing IVF treatment with your own eggs at Dunya IVF is 3,000 Euros. Included in this price is:

  • Ultrasound scans (only if performed in our clinic by our clinicians). These are to determine that your body is ready for treatment.
  • Egg collection. You will undergo egg collection (under general anesthesia) in order to obtain eggs.
  • Sperm collection. Sperm will be collected from the partner or the donor.
  • ICSI and embryo incubation. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is where the sperm is injected into the eggs and is used to fertilise the eggs.
  • Assisted Hatching (if required). A treatment that is used in order to help the embryos during the implantation process.
  • Embryo transfer. This is where the embryos are transferred into the endometrial cavity once they have developed enough for the implantation process.

As said above this is what is included in the price of 3,000 Euros. There will be more involved in the process, such as medication and blood tests (There is no charge for the estradiol blood test, but the serology tests are chargeable). This entire process can take up to 11 weeks from start to finish depending on certain factors, but this will all be discussed with you by your doctor when you have your consultation and your treatment is decided upon. The reason the timeline isn’t set in stone is that different patients may require different treatments or may need more time with some of the stages, or less, as every individual is different.

Whilst you are undergoing treatment with the clinic you will require transport and accommodation, none of this is included in the price of your treatment but the clinic can sometimes help you arrange these for you at an extra cost.

What are the costs of popular IVF add-ons at Dunya IVF?

The costs for popular IVF add-ons at Dunya IVF can vary depending on the add-ons that you wish to have or require. Some of the more popular add-ons at the clinic are:

  • Embryo Glue. Embryo Glue is a viscous fluid that is made of Hyaluronan and human albumin. It was designed in order to help the embryo stick to the uterus, in order to facilitate pregnancy. Due to the lack of movement and protection it offers it can protect the embryo from any harm that may come to it during certain procedures. Thanks to the benefits that embryo glue provides, it can lead to a higher chance of successful implantation, especially in women who are over the age of 35, as they have a higher chance of failed implantation. The cost for this treatment is 500 Euros, and whilst it isn’t a must have, it does give a boost to your chances. If you wish to have this then you must pay before you undergo ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), as the glue must be used on the embryo beforehand.
  • Vitrification and freezing of embryos. This is where the remaining embryos on your treatment are frozen for future use, should you decide you wish to undergo IVF treatment again. The clinic will store them on a yearly basis and for however many years you wish for them to be stored. The initial cost for the vitrification and freezing of your remaining embryos is 500 Euros, and this includes storage for one year, but only includes two straws, should you wish for additional straws to be frozen you will need to pay 100 Euros per straw (1 or 2 embryos can be placed in each straw).

Should you wish to have either of these add-ons you can talk to your doctor when discussing your treatment.

What is the average cost of the egg donation cycle at Dunya IVF?

The average cost of undergoing IVF treatment using egg donation at Dunya IVF is 5,500 Euros. Included in this cost are all the necessary ultrasound scans (only if performed in our clinic by our clinicians), egg collection, the sperm collection, ICSI, embryo incubation, assisted hatching (if required) and embryo transfer. All of these are performed in stages over time to ensure that everything is performed when it needs to be. Egg donation treatment is where you need a donor to supply the eggs for you in order for you to have a child, due to your ovaries not being able to produce any or high-quality eggs for this treatment. If you are an older woman who has already gone through menopause, you have damaged ovaries due to a variety of reasons, or have no ovaries, you will likely be undergoing treatment using egg donation.

The stages of IVF treatment with egg donation are as follows:

  • The first stage involves matching you with an egg donor, and due to the laws and legislations, your egg donor will be anonymous. The clinic will choose the donor based on your certain characteristics, and they will match the donor to you as closely as possible.
  • The second stage requires the cycles of yours and the donor’s to be synchronised. For this purpose, you might need to use some medication if required.

After this, the donor will be have ovarian stimulation in order to undergo egg retrieval. Also, you will have your endometrium prepared in order for you to be ready to receive the embryos derived from the sperm and donor eggs. For this purpose, you will need to use some medication.

  • Stage three is the donor’s egg retrieval stage, where they will be retrieved from the donor in order to be prepared for embryo transfer.
  • The fourth stage involves the fertilisation of the donor eggs using the sperm that is to be used, from a donor or your partner, and then once the embryos are ready, they will be transferred into your uterus. Once the treatment has been performed there may be additional high quality embryos that are left over that are still viable for implantation, should this occur then it is advisable to have them frozen for future use, and the doctor should be consulted should this be the wish of the patient.
  • Stage five is the waiting stage and you will have to wait 10 to 15 days before you take a pregnancy test to see if the treatment has led to a pregnancy.

Once all of these stages have been completed, you will hopefully be pregnant and awaiting the arrival of your baby.

What kind of egg donor ethnicities are available at Dunya IVF?

The egg donor ethnicities that are available at Dunya IVF are numerous thanks to having multiple ethnicities available, and all with no waiting list. Thanks to this they are able to serve a wide range of people who are trying to undergo IVF treatment in order to have the children that they dream of.

There are two forms of egg donors available in the world: known and anonymous. A known donor is a donor that you personally know and have chosen and who has said yes and is willing to donate their eggs for your use. An anonymous donor will be a donor chosen from the database of donors by the clinic, and who will be matched to your physical characteristics to ensure as close a match as possible, but you will not be able to know who they are due to the anonymity laws and legislations. Dunya IVF can provide you only an anonymous egg donor treatment route due to the country’s laws and legislations.

As stated above the anonymous donors will be matched as closely to you as possible when it comes to skin colour, hair colour, eye colour, blood group, ethnic origin and more. All donors are thoroughly vetted by the clinic as they must adhere to the standards set forth by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Ministry of Health.

The standards the donors must meet are:

  • The donor must be between the ages of 21 and 30. This is to ensure the health and fertility of the eggs as the younger the donor the more fertile the eggs will be.
  • The donor must be physically and psychologically healthy and will undergo testing to ensure this is so.
  • The donors will be tested to ensure the risk of any hereditary diseases or abnormal genes passing to your child is minimised.

Because of these standards, you can be sure that all donors are healthy and the best possible choices.

What is the cost of PGT-A and how should it be calculated with IVF programs at Dunya IVF?

The cost of having a PGT-A test performed with Dunya IVF is 5,500 Euro plus 300 Euro per embryo to be screened,  After the 10th embryo 400 Euros per embryo but this includes the cost of IVF treatment as well, due to it not being available as a test on its own. All in all this includes all of the processes for the treatment such as egg collection, sperm collection, ICSI, embryo incubation, the biopsy of the embryo as well as genetic screening, embryo cryopreservation and once the results come and if there is any healthy embryo embryo thawing, assisted hatching (if required) and finally, embryo transfer.

PGT-A testing is Preimplantation Genetic Testing, the test is performed on the embryos prior to implantation and is used to determine whether or not there are any major genetic defects or any numerical chromosome abnormalities within the embryo that will be an issue for the child later down the line. The reason for a test such as this is to ensure that only the healthiest embryos are transferred and that you have the highest chance of success possible with your treatment.

An aspect of this test that is not often talked about is that it can be used for gender selection, and this can be used for a few different reasons. If you have a preferred gender in mind for reasons such as family balancing (if you already have children of the one gender and wish for a child of the other), this way you can be more sure of filling your family out in your desired way, and give your child the brother or sister that you want them to have. Another important reason for this test is that there are certain genetic diseases or illnesses that pass through your family and only affect one particular gender and you do not wish for your child to be affected by that.

Due to all of this PGT-A testing is very popular and is a test that is sought after by many would-be parents around the world.

What is the cost of donor sperm from the bank at Dunya IVF?

The cost of donor sperm with Dunya IVF is 4,500 Euros, but this includes the cost of the IVF treatment at 3,000 Euros, with the donor sperm itself costing 1,500 Euros. The reason that you may require treatment with donor sperm is that the male partner has no sperm or a low sperm count or his sperm has low morphology or motility.

Dunya IVF uses trusted international sperm banks from places that they know they can trust, and have the sperm imported into their clinic ready for your treatment. All of the donors that are used have been thoroughly tested and evaluated to ensure that they are both physically healthy and psychologically ready to donate sperm. Such testing includes testing for sexually transmitted infections, genetic diseases and any other issues that can affect the sperm. When your donor is chosen it will be done by the clinic, as there are anonymity laws in place that prevent you from knowing who the donor is, but the clinic will choose the donor based on characteristics that enable them to match the donor to you and your partner as closely as possible.

When undergoing treatment with donor sperm the treatment is performed in four stages:

  • Stage one is the evaluation stage where the clinic will evaluate you and your body to ensure it is able to undergo fertility treatment.
  • Stage two. You will undergo hormone tests to determine if your eggs have the capacity to be used in the treatment.
  • Stage three is where your ovaries will be stimulated and afterward your eggs will be collected and then fertilised with the donor sperm using a method known as ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection), where the sperm is injected into the egg.
  • Stage four. In this stage, the embryo will be transferred into your uterus after embryo development stages are followed-up in the laboratory.
  • Once the treatment has been performed there may be additional high-quality embryos that are left over that are still viable for implantation, should this occur then it is advisable to have them frozen for future use, and the doctor should be consulted should this be the wish of the patient.

Once all of this is complete you should hopefully be pregnant and looking forward to your baby being born.

What is the average cost of embryo donation at Dunya IVF?

Both donors will be matched to you and your partner to ensure that there is physical compatibility and physiological compatibility, such as blood type, although you won’t have access to the information regarding either of the donors due to the anonymity laws and legislations which require them to remain anonymous, so the clinic will be choosing the donors on your behalf.

The process of embryo donation is seen as an easier process to undergo for the recipients than the other treatments, as they will only be required to be present in the clinic for the embryo transfer process, which can give them more time to prepare mentally. Once the treatment has been performed there may be additional high quality embryos that are left over that are still viable for implantation, should this occur then it is advisable to have them frozen for future use, and the doctor should be consulted should this be the wish of the patient, so that this can be arranged.

Embryo donation treatment at clinics in Cyprus have success rates at well above average, so choosing Dunya IVF is a great choice.

What is the average cost of egg freezing at Dunya IVF?

The average cost of egg freezing with Dunya IVF is 3,000 Euros, but this only covers one year of storage. If you wish to have your eggs stored for the long term then you can pay 3,500 and have the eggs stored for five years instead. What this includes is all of the necessary scans, as well as the collection of the eggs and then the storage.

There are many reasons as to why you may choose to store your eggs, with preservation of their health and fertility capacity being a major factor due to the eggs not ageing whilst cryopreserved. Reasons for this can be:

  • You may wish to undergo education that can take longer than typical education, such as an educational program that lasts from five to ten years, rather than shorter ones that last three to five.
  • You might be in a job that you wish to focus on for reasons such as moving up the ladder, or you may have started your career later due to a lengthy educational program.
  • Medical treatment. Some medical treatments can have an impact on a woman’s fertility, such as undergoing chemotherapy. Freezing your eggs before treatment such as this can preserve them while they are still healthy and fertile, so that you can have children after your treatment has concluded.
  • Right partner. Sometimes meeting the right partner can be difficult, and some meet their soulmate later in life than others. If you preserve eggs at a younger age and meet the person you want to have children with later, then you will know you have young eggs ready for you to begin.
  • Financial stability. As we all know having a child can be an expensive undertaking, so wishing to wait until you are in a position where you will have no financial hardships is a smart decision. Freezing eggs until you are in this position is another valid reason.

As you can see there are many reasons for freezing eggs and the benefits are that the eggs will remain the same age as you were when you had the procedure performed, meaning they will be as healthy and fertile as they were at the time when you have your eggs frozen.

What are the average costs of intrauterine insemination and donor sperm insemination at Dunya IVF?

The average cost of IUI with Dunya IVF is 500 Euros. IUI is Intrauterine Insemination and is a procedure whereby sperm is placed directly inside the uterus, and is used in situations where the male partner is experiencing fertility issues or where a sperm donor has been used. Sometimes the female partner will undergo ovarian stimulation to induce ovulation, and this is done via medication where an injectable medication will be used. The cost of IUI will include the ovulation induction, the sperm washing and the placement of the sperm inside the uterus.

If you wish to use a sperm donor in conjunction with IUI then the cost with Dunya IVF is 2,000 Euros, and this is for the sperm as well as all of the above. A sperm donor will be used when the male partner has no viable sperm to be used in the procedure. A donor will be chosen and they will be matched to the characteristics of the male, female, or both. Due to anonymity laws and legislations the donor will not be shown, or their identity disclosed, to the couple undergoing treatment.

All donors undergo extensive testing, both physically and psychologically, to ensure that they are healthy and that they have no genetic diseases or illnesses that can affect the fertility of the sperm or the health of the child.
