I was happy with the whole thing and the clinic was completely clean

4 50 PGD - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

I went to this clinic in Cyprus and I received an above average treatment for my Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis that I went to see the doctor for, it was a good experience.

Starting with the staff are amazing and the doctor was friendly as well and they did not charge me a ridiculous price but what they promised prior the meeting. I would safely say I was happy with the whole thing and the clinic was a completely clean and inviting with the setup.

Thank you for this great review. It was a pleasure having you here and we wish you well with your pregnancy.

The kept us informed at every stage before arriving in Cyprus

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

I recently had IVF using donor eggs, this was my second time having this procedure at this clinic. I had this treatment done due to being diagnosed with unexplained fertility and I had one failed IVF using my own eggs in UK. I was later informed by my fertility doctor that I have poor ovarian reserve. The doctor was very professional, empathetic and appears to be genuine. The practice manager was very good at communication and kept you informed at every stage before arriving in Cyprus. I felt safe in allowing the doctor to provide the treatment that I needed. I have now developed a trusting relationship with the clinic knowing that the appropriate test will be carried out on the donor before accepting her as suitable. Although this was my second failed cycle with this clinic I still feel confident and comfortable using this clinic and will continue until I have my child /children. The treatment was good value compared to UK and my patient co-ordinator make sure that all medications were available for me before returning to the UK.

I chose this clinic as I had previously received treatment there and wanted to continue due to the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. My patient co-ordinator was wonderful and organised, also my nursing assistant was caring and shows compassion. I enjoyed my visit as it is always a pleasure returning to the clinic. Staff are happy and it would appear as though they enjoy their work, the environment was friendly and warm.

I was treated as person and I really felt comfortable

4.5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation, Egg Donation • Paid: $4000

I had IVF with donor eggs, as I had failed IVF in UK and was informed that my ovarian reserve was low. The price was excellent compared to the UK, I think the procedure cost just under £4000 (excluding medications and test)

I was a bit sceptical about travelling to Northern Cyprus to do IVF procedure as I was scared that because of my ethnic background I would be treated differently, but this was not so. I had a wonderful time, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. My ethnicity was not important to staff, I was treated as person and I really felt comfortable. Doctor Savas is very experience, knowledgeable and is an expert in his field. On entering the reception area on my first visit I was greeted by staff, one staff in particular called me by my name. The clinic was clean and the atmosphere was one of warmth. I chose this clinic because after sending my medical records to them the team was able to sit together and discussed my situation. I later received a detailed emailed from them discussing my medical records step by step and outlining the best treatment route to take based on findings from my previous results here in the UK. I was impressed and this led me to believe that the team was knowledgeable. All my emails were answered promptly and they were able to give accurate answers to my questions.

The whole experience was far more pleasurable, efficient and inexpensive

5 50 IVF with Donor Eggs • Paid: $4500

Excellent. The treatment was extremely well planned. I had had many miscarriages and failed IVF in the UK. The team bent over backwards to try to work out what had caused the problems and found a mutation in a particular gene, which had been missed in the UK. The problem could easily be treated once identified and the IVF worked first time. The whole experience was far more pleasurable, efficient and inexpensive than the UK. Thoroughly recommend them.

Dear Kathy, Thank you for this great review! I am glad that you were pleased with your treatment. It is feedbacks like this that make our job so rewarding. Thank you!

Blastocyst Transfer

from $5000

Egg Donor

Egg donation IVF is the treatment option for patients with female infertility factor. The female’s egg production could be insufficient, egg quality may be poor or the age of the patient does not allow her to conceive with her own eggs. This option is also explored when the female is already in menopause and unable to produce eggs. A healthy egg donor is chosen and her eggs are used to fertilize with the male’s sperm.

 An egg donor needs to meet specific criteria. The acceptable age range for a donor is between 21 and 29 years. In order to ensure that a donor is physically, genetically and psychologically healthy for the donation, she has to undergo a number of tests. At North Cyprus IVF, we make sure egg donors comply with all the health standards prior to making a donation.

10 mature, or M2 eggs are guaranteed for the recipient.

from $2000

Egg Freezing

Advances in the In Vitro Fertilization process allow us to successfully freeze, store and later thaw and fertilize cryopreserved human eggs. 

Oocyte cryopreservation is aimed at three particular groups of women: those diagnosed with cancer who have not yet begun chemotherapy or radiotherapy; those undergoing treatment with assisted reproductive technologies who do not consider embryo freezing an option; and those who would like to preserve their future ability to have children, or for other personal or medical reasons.

The egg-retrieval process for oocyte cryopreservation is the same as that for in vitro fertilization. This includes several weeks of hormone injections and hormonal contraception in order to stop ovulation, followed by more hormone injections to stimulate ovaries and ripen multiple eggs. When the eggs are removed, the procedure is conducted under sedation. The eggs are immediately frozen.

Frozen eggs can be stored for as long as the patient wishes.

$3500 - $4500

Egg Sharing

from $5500

Embryo Donation

A healthy egg donor, as well as a sperm donor are chosen by the patient/s and the donor embryos are created. 

 An egg donor needs to meet specific criteria and she has to undergo a number of tests. Patients are able to specify their preferences and/or match with their own photo. The sperm donor samples we carry are from known fertility sperm banks and patients are able to choose their candidate from full profiles.

from $500

Embryo Freezing

Embryo Cryopreservation (embryo freezing) is the freezing of "excess" embryos for use in future IVF cycles. This option is often explored by couples undergoing IVF treatment where the excess embryos are frozen for future use if the IVF attempt fails, or for a second pregnancy. 2 years storage is included in the cost.


Fertility Specialist Consultation

Consultation at our clinic is without charge. Any tests or procedures required are charged to the patient.

$100 - $300

Fertility Test

The cost of testing will depend on the specific tests the patient requires.

FET - Frozen Embryo Transfer


ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection

At North Cyprus IVF, ICSI is included in the IVF treatment.

ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is recommended when there is a reason to suspect that achieving fertilization may be difficult, even when the IVF procedures are used. ICSI is most often used with couples who are dealing with male infertility factors. Male infertility factors can include any of the following problems: low sperm counts, poor motility or movement of the sperm, poor sperm quality, or sperm that lack the ability to penetrate an egg. However, we use ICSI in all our IVF treatments to give our patients the highest chance of success at no additional cost.

There are basically five simple steps to ICSI which include the following:

1. The mature egg is held with a specialized pipette.

2. A very delicate, sharp, and hollow needle is used to immobilize and pick up a single sperm.

3. This needle is then carefully inserted through the shell of the egg and into the cytoplasm of the egg.

4. The sperm is injected into the cytoplasm, and the needle is carefully removed.

5. The eggs are checked the following day for evidence of normal fertilization.

IMSI - Intracytoplasmic Morphologically-Selected Sperm Injection

from $1000

IUI - Intrauterine Insemination

IUI (Intra Uterine Injection) is a fertility treatment that uses a catheter to place a number of washed sperm directly into the uterus. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.

IUI is a fertility treatment often selected by patients who have been trying to conceive for at least one year but who have no known reasons for their infertility. It may also be selected as a fertility treatment with any of the following conditions:
-Low sperm count
-Decreased sperm mobility
-Requirement of donor sperm (sperm donation IVF)
-A hostile cervical condition, such as cervical mucus that is too thick
-Sexual dysfunction

Although IUI still requires the sperm to reach and fertilize the egg on its own, it is important to make sure that the sperm is healthy and mobile. IUI provides the sperm an advantage by giving it a head start, but it still has to seek out the egg on its own.

from $2500

IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

Patients who have been unable to conceive despite actively trying for over a year, are the group of patients who may need IVF treatment. Patients with failed IUI treatments will also be ideal candidates for IVF treatment. The female patient should have an acceptable level of ovarian function for a successful cycle.

$2000 - $2500

PGD - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

PGD genetic diagnosis is performed as a part of an IVF cycle. At their earliest stage of development, a cell is removed from each embryo through a procedure called embryobiopsy. These cells are analyzed in the PGD Laboratory to determine which embryos are free of genetic abnormalities. This sophisticated  testing identifies which embryos are free of major abnormalities and more able to achieve the patients goal of a healthy baby. PGD is used to screen abnormalities in chromosomes X, Y, 13, 18 and 21, which show the majority of the defects which cause common genetic disorders.

Gender(sex) selection IVF is also a growing concept in the field of IVF. Allowing parents to choose the sex of their baby prior to conception and eliminating genetic disorders that are associated with X or Y chromosomes.

Microsort is available at our clinic and this patented and proven device allows us to sort the X and Y sperm before the eggs are fertilised. We are the only clinic with Microsort on the premises in Europe and the Middle east.  Microsort is an additional 1,200 euros.

Surgical Sperm Retrieval

PESA - Percutaneous Sperm Aspiration

TESA - Testicular Sperm Extraction

At North Cyprus IVF Center, we are able to offer another scientific break-through in IVF treatments, known as the "Integrated Microfluidic Chip". This system is designed to allow only the motile sperm with DNA integrity to pass through the microchannels of the chip. 

In a way, the sperm cells need to undergo a microscopic obstacle course in order to reach the other end of the chip. This increases our chance to use the sperm cells that are most likely to successfully fertilize the eggs.

It uses no chemicals or centrifugation, meaning, the technique does not add any stress to the sperm cells while doing its job. Biologically, in natural conception, sperm cells swim through a variable fluidic environment in the female reproductive system with watery micro-channels that help guide them to the egg. The idea is to mimic what happens naturally, which is known to minimize the risk of genetic abnormalities as a result of natural selection.

The integrated microfluidic chip for sperm selection is an ideal method for patients with sperm related problems. The main group of patients who can really benefit from this technology are those whose embryos fail to develop beyond a certain stage of development, due to likely genetic problems with the sperm. 
It has been shown that sperm samples with high DNA defect are associated with lower blastocyst formation and lower implantation rates as a result. This is due to the fact that sperm cells empty their genetic content into the egg a few days after fertilization. 
Therefore, even though there is fertilization, embryos will stop growing after a few days when there is a DNA defect with the sperm cell that has fertilized the oocyte. 
This is precisely why this current technology is an important breakthrough which can possibly reduce IVF failures by a large degree.
