UR Vistahermosa - IVF Package with own eggs

UR Vistahermosa, fertility clinic, is located in Alicante, Spain. It is a private hospital and was established in 1983. The clinic is located within the hospital Clínica Vistahermosa hospital which means that it has access to a wide range of departments and specialities if needed. There are four laboratories in the complex and eight operating theatres with many recovery patient rooms. In 2016 the clinic carried out 1,316 treatment cycles of which 524 were donor egg cycles. The clinic accepts HIV/HCV/HBV positive patients. 

More than 35 years of nurturing life…


The clinic director is Dr. López Gálvez. He is the director of the Specialist University Course on Human Reproductive Biology at Universidad Miguel Hernández in Alicante. At the clinic there are 8 doctors and 5 embryologists. The senior embryologist has 25 years’ of experience and is ESHRE accredited. The clinic has an International Department that assists patients coming from other countries. They can even communicate with your gynaecologist in your home country before you come to Spain to coordinate your treatment.

The procedure of IVF/ICSI normally consists of two visits to Alicante. We can also help schedule just one visit, but we would need some previous tests to be performed in the patient’s home country, so we can arrange the treatment and they would just come for the monitoring of follicles. The patient will stay in Alicante until the transfer. If the patient travels to Spain twice, our medical team will review the case and will explain the procedure and will answer the questions. They will perform a medical exam with ultrasound scan and transfer test. Also, blood tests on patient and partner (if needed) will be done in this visit and he will provide a sample to be analyzed and frozen, even if they decide to use fresh sperm, just in case.

After the visit, the doctor will prescribe medication and will explain the treatment protocol. We have sperm donor bank both national and international, in case patients need them. Any information patients can bring will be always helpful for the doctors, as they can review it and consider it for the cycle. An online Skype consultation can be arranged with our doctors to discuss the best path to face your case successfully. Regarding IVF, patients will need some injections to stimulate ovaries and to create follicles. Patients can take the medication while they are in their home country and come for the ultrasound monitoring. As soon as they are ready, we will schedule the egg collection. As we are located inside a hospital, they will be completely safe because the staff of the hospital is 24 hours here. On the day of the egg collection, patients can stay in a private en-suite room at the hospital, just in case, and then they can move to the hotel the next morning. The total stay can be between 7 and 10 days. When we collect the eggs, we microinject them with the partner’s sperm of partner or with donor sperm and we keep the embryos developing in culture for 5 days until they achieve the blastocyst stage (if possible).
