In this video, Dr Fernando Sánchez, Clinic Director at Ginemed, is answering patients’ questions about guaranteed blastocyst programs for patients with complicated fertility issues.
Dr Sánchez started by explaining that there are many advantages of the guaranteed programs, especially for complicated cases, and it is something that the medical learned from experience because there is no way to understand these things unless you have the experience.
There is an egg donation with a guaranteed number of embryos program, and then 1 blastocyst can be guaranteed, 2, 3, 4 or 6, which gives the highest success rate between 80-90%.
Another guarantee program is egg donation with a guaranteed number of eggs. This will ensure the patients that there is no problem with the donor and they will have enough eggs to achieve a pregnancy, and according to Dr Sánchez, this form of guaranteed program is the best. It is more economic, it guarantees 8 eggs, and the success rate is around 70-75%. Usually, 3 blastocysts will be formed.
There is also a pregnancy guarantee program with embryo adoption or egg donation. There is also a pregnancy guarantee program in the IVF cycle. If a pregnancy is not achieved, the cost of the treatment will be refunded. The recommendations for this sort of treatment depend on the number of previous cycles.
There are different programs, and different ways, and the main advantage of such programs is that from a psychological point of view, the patient can be more relaxed. Most of the time, couples, or women select one of these programs because they already had 3,4 or even more failed cycles. Typically, these programs are quite expensive for the patients, but after a couple of failed cycles, even when they pay a lot for a guarantee program and they get pregnant, they feel very happy.- Questions and Answers
