While continuing to work in France until 1994, Dr. Senai Aksoy obtained ‘Gynecologic Laparoscopical Surgery’ diploma from the University of Clermont Ferrand and ‘Gynecological and Obstetrical Ultrasound’ diploma from the University of Strasbourg Louis Pasteur.
After obtaining ‘Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility’ diploma from the University of Paris Rene Descart, he returned to Turkey and he was a member of the ‘IVF and Infertility’ team at the Ankara Sevgi Hospital, which was the team to first use the ‘Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection’ (ICSI) technique in Turkey, Cost of IVF in Turkey.
In 1995 he became a member of the founding team of the IVF Department at the American Hospital, Istanbul. In 1998 he established his private practice; Art Fertility Center.

Success Rates : Dr. Senai Aksoy IVF Turkey
Success Dr. Senai Aksoy IVF Turkey of IVF largely depends on woman’s age and her ovarian reserve. The presence of previous failed IVF/ICSI attempts also is an indicator.
IVF is most successful in women who are younger than 35 years of age. In this age group pregnancy rates may be as high as 40% with a single embryo transfer and 55% with a double embryo transfer.
However, pregnancy rates start to decline after 35 and more so after 39. Theoretically a chance of conception beyond the age 45 is zero.
The graphic below displays the clinical pregnancy rate (ultrasound visible pregnancy sac) per embryo transfer in the American Hospital of Istanbul.
As can be seen in this graphic, our clinical pregnancy rate per embryo transfer is approximately 60% at age 24, 47% at age 30 and 40% at age 35.

Pre IVF testing for female and male :
These tests are made before IVF treatment:
|Complete Blood Count||Rubella IgG, IgM||Fasting Glucose||FSH, LH|
|Folic Acid||HBSAg, AntiHBS||Creatinin||Estradiol|
|Vitamin B12||HCV, HIV||BUN||Prolactin|
|Toxoplasma IgG, IgM||AST||T3|
|Antikardiolipin IgG, IgM||T4|
|Chlamydia IgG, IgM||AMH|
|Chlamydia IgG, IgM|
Reasons for Cancellation of Treatment
Your treatment may be cancelled for several reasons:
1. The ovaries may respond inadequately and the treatment is cancelled prior to egg retrieval.
2. Despite the presence of follicles no eggs may be retrieved. The reason for this is two-fold. The follicles may contain no eggs (empty follicle syndrome). This is seen in < 1% of the patients. The follicles may prematurely rupture prior to egg retrieval procedure. This is seen in 3-5% of the patients depending on the stimulation protocol.
3. The eggs may not fertilize. This is very rare in the microinjection era. However in approximately 2-5% of the patients no fertilization may be seen due to abnormal eggs.
4. Fertilized eggs may not cleave. This is also very rare and due to abnormal eggs.
5. Azospermic husband may not yield spermatozoa to needle aspiration or open biopsy. In this case the treatment is cancelled prior to egg retrieval.
6. No normal embryos if PGD is performed. In this case embryo transfer is not performed.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a procedure whereby a single cell is removed from the embryo on day 3 to perform genetic testing. PGD can detect certain chromosomal abnormalities (i.e. trisomies, monosomies, translocations, etc.) and single gene defects (i.e. thalassemia, fragile X syndrome, etc.) and can also be performed for HLA typing.
Sperm Retrieval in Azoospermic Subjects (TESE/TESA)
In men who have no spermatozoa in the ejaculate, sperm need to be retrieved either form the epididymis or the testes. When the etiology of azoospermia is obstructive (blockage to the canals bringing the spermatozoa from the testes to the ejaculate) sperm can be retrieved from the epididymis using a needle aspiration technique. (TESA)
In men with azoospermia due to defective sperm production, sperm can be obtained from the testes usually with an open surgical procedure (TESE). Both procedures are performed under general anesthesia.
While sperm can be retrieved in almost 100% of subjects with obstructive azoospermia, only 40-50% of the subjects with nonobstructive azoospermia will yield viable spermatozoa.
Azoospermia may be associated with certain genetic disorders. There may be mutations in the cyctic fibrosis gene in men with obstructive azoospermia. Chromosomal abnormalities and Y-chromosome microdeletions may be associated with nonobstructive azoospermia. It is advised that genetic testing be undertaken in all men with azoospermia.
