iGin is a private clinic established in 2013. The clinic facilities benefit from bright, spacious and freshly designed reception and waiting areas, patient recovery rooms, consultation rooms, own laboratory and operating theatre. There are five single recovery rooms and one ensuite room. The clinic is located nearby the Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park that can be the perfect spot for a relaxing walk. The park leads directly to the city centre.

iGin offers a wide range of fertility treatments and diagnostics. The total number of treatments performed by the clinic in 2021 was 938 cycles of which 60% were IVF cycles with own eggs and 40% were egg donation cycles.

Patients can choose between face-to-face visits or online consultations. The first visit lasts approx. 1-2 hours. This may, of course, vary depending on the case. The first visit is completely free of charge. If your treatment involves partner’s sperm, your partner will be asked to leave a sperm sample for analysis and that, depending on the case, may be frozen to be used at a later date. If you choose to have a remote consultation, this can be done via Skype or telephone. Prior to the call, you will be asked to complete the medical history form and your case and treatment options will be discussed during the call.

The clinic’s international patients are constantly followed up by iGin’s fertility specialist. After the first visit, the patient is asked to have certain tests done. These can be done in their home country with their doctor. The results are emailed to iGin and the clinic’s doctor assesses them. Then another video call follows up to discuss the results and prepare the treatment for the patient. The prescriptions and treatment plan are sent out to the patient and the iGin doctor indicates when and how to perform the screenings during the hormonal stimulation. The patient does not need to visit the clinic at this point but can attend her regular gynaecologist/radiology centre to perform the scans and blood tests required. These are again emailed to iGin and assessed by the doctor who will indicate the following steps after every screening. Once the patient is ready and the exact date for egg pick-up or transfer in Spain is established, the patient is informed so they can book their flights and arrange their travel plans.

Success rates at iGin in 2021

In 2021, the egg donation clinical pregnancy success rate was 69% and the overall clinical pregnancy success rate for IVF with own eggs was 65%. The frozen embryo clinical pregnancy success rate was 68%. The clinical pregnancy success rates for IVF with own eggs per patient’s age were as follows:

  • women under 35 – 66.8%
  • women aged 35-40 – 64.3%
  • women over 40 – 62.7%.

The average number of embryos transferred at the clinic is .001%, therefore, the multiple birth rate is only 0.01%. The preferred embryos for transfer are blastocysts, at day 5-6.

Remember that average success rates shouldn’t be the primary deciding factor for your choice of clinic. Each patient is different – they have place different emphasis and importance on infertility diagnoses and medical histories. As such, the prognoses for each patient can vary greatly and usually are different from the presented average success rates of each clinic. If you want clarification about a clinic’s success rates, contact the clinic before scheduling an appointment – describe your medical history in detail, including your age, weight, height, the infertility diagnosis, the number of failed cycles, performed tests and procedures, etc. and ask for your individual success prognosis.
