What services does Victory ART Laboratory specialize in?
Fertility Hormone Testing
These tests provide a picture of the baseline hormone profile of the patient. In particular, the Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a direct ovarian reserve marker which gives a picture of the ovarian function.
Fertility Hormone Testing
In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a fertility procedure in which a woman’s ovaries are stimulated to mature multiple oocytes (eggs) using injections, then collected under ultrasound guidance.
Women having IVF are given follicle stimulating hormone to encourage several eggs to develop in the ovaries. Final maturation of the egg itself is induced by the administration of a human chorionic gonadotropin hormone.
36 hours later, egg collection is performed under ultrasound guidance as a short outpatient procedure. Fluid containing the eggs is drawn from the follicles in the ovary with a needle.
The eggs collected from the ovary are then mixed with a sample of the male partner’s sperm which has already been washed and concentrated. The eggs and sperm are left in an incubator so that fertilization can take place. Following fertilization, the cells divide and multiply and form an embryo. It is then transferred to the uterus by means of a thin flexible tube where it is left to implant and form a pregnancy.
We at Victory Art Lab, understand that IVF treatment is an emotional commitment and a financial decision to take. Balancing utmost quality care and cost guarantee service, our scientific team and fertility specialists provide personalized patient care eliminating unnecessary tests and charges that can impose additional financial risk.
The treatment cost is divided into three parts:
- Pre-treatment cost
The first step in your IVF journey is a consultation with one of our fertility specialists, who will, assess your medical history and plan appropriate fertility treatment. During this stage, blood tests, semen analysis, and ultrasound tests might be requested.
- Actual treatment
- Fertility Medications
As part of the treatment, fertility drugs are given to stimulate the ovaries. The dosage of the drugs will depend on your basal fertility result. The cost will depend on the dosage and frequency you take the drugs.
- Actual procedure
Oocyte retrieval, ICSI/IVF, and Embryo transfer. The laboratory sets a fixed amount for these procedures. A refund will be given when one of these procedures is not performed.
- Professional fees
Different specialists charge according to the extent of the treatment:
- Fertility Specialists
Approximately, the total cost of an IVF cycle is 400-500,000 PHP. This is subject to change as each patient is treated according to their fertility plan. The patient can spend more or less than the base amount.
The chances of pregnancy are 40-50% per transfer.
Step One: Choose a Fertility Specialist
Our center can refer you to the top Fertility specialists in the country. We also provide a Free consultation with our embryologist to assist you in choosing your specialists.
As soon as you have chosen your Fertility Specialist, phone their clinics to make an appointment.
Step Two: Meeting your Fertility Specialist
During your first meeting, the Fertility Specialist may ask you about your fertility history and carry out a physical examination. You may need to bring the previous examinations and test results as this will be significant in the treatment process.
For women, an ultrasound, to check the reproductive structure, and blood tests, to check if you are ovulating.
For men, sperm analysis is to assess the quality and viability of the sperm sample.
Fertility Screening is done.
Step Three: Deciding
Once the fertility specialists have recommended a treatment plan and options, the couple will have to decide if they are emotionally and financially ready to undergo the procedure.
A visit to the laboratory can help you feel the environment and meet the staff that will assist you during the actual procedure.
Step One: Ovarian Simulation
For women, you will be given fertility drugs to stimulate your ovaries to produce more eggs. Every patient has a different treatment plan. Stimulation drug dosage will vary according to the fertility profile of the patient.
Step Two: Egg Retrieval
Once the eggs are ready for harvesting, a medication to trigger ovulation is given 36 hours prior to egg retrieval.
The mature eggs collected are injected with a single sperm from your partner (ICSI). While the immature ones (if any) are cultured longer and will be injected once maturity takes place.
Step Three: Fertilization
The injected eggs are observed after about 18 hours of injection for a sign of fertilization. The embryologist will check the progress of the fertilized eggs to embryos, day by day until the preferred transfer date.
Step Four: Embryo Transfer
VALPI is equipped to culture embryos depending on the day of transfer (day 2, 3, 4, Blastocyst stage)
Any remaining embryos can be frozen for future use.
Step Five: After Transfer
We encourage our patients to limit physical activities for 24 to 72 hours post-embryo transfer. Non- strenuous and non-aerobic activities. Sexual intercourse must be avoided for a week. Any sign of bleeding, bloating, and abdominal cramps must be consulted with your specialists.
The male partner is requested to collect a fresh sample on the oocyte retrieval day.
In the event that the husband is not capable to produce a fresh sample, the semen sample that was frozen as a backup will be used for the ICSI/IVF process.
For male partners with zero sperm count, surgically retrieved sperm is used (TESE, TESA, MESA, PESA). This procedure should take place prior to stimulation day.
Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing)
Oocyte (Egg) Cryopreservation Program gives women the possibility to store eggs at a younger age for use in the future when they are older. Oocyte freezing can be also used as a medical emergency in the setting of a newly-diagnosed cancer or for personal social reasons.
Women having egg freezing are given daily injections of follicle stimulating hormone for 10 to 12 days to encourage several eggs to develop in the ovaries.
When the follicles within the ovary reach an adequate size, final maturation of the egg itself is induced by the administration of another injection of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone. 36 hours later, egg collection is performed under ultrasound guidance as a short outpatient procedure.
Fluid containing the eggs is then drawn from the follicles in the ovary with a needle. The eggs collected from the ovary are then cryopreserved and will be thawed when the woman is ready to use them.
No, you do not need to take a leave. This part of the treatment entails a 10-15 minute visit to our clinic wherein we may perform an ultrasound scan and request blood exams, after which we will give you an injection. After receiving your injection, you can go home.
We prefer to administer the injections in the clinic to ensure that you are receiving the correct dose of medication. This also allows us to closely monitor your response to the treatment.
The pain is momentary during the injection only.
Yes, it is possible. This is comparable to how some women react to contraceptive pills. However, this is temporary and only during the course of treatment.

No, you will not. You will have anesthesia and will be asleep during the procedure.
No, you will not. The egg extraction process is a short outpatient procedure. The actual procedure lasts for about half an hour after which you will be observed in the recovery room for a couple of hours. You may go home after. However, we will not allow you to drive after the procedure because you may feel groggy from the anesthesia.
We practice conventional IVF for egg freezing because we want to have a good yield of harvested eggs. Based on studies, we anticipate egg thaw rates of 75% and fertilization rates of 75% in women up to 38 years of age. Thus, if 10 eggs are frozen, 7 are expected to survive the thaw, and 5 to 6 are expected to fertilize and become embryos. Usually, 3-4 embryos are transferred in women up to 38 years of age. We, therefore, recommend that at least 10 eggs be stored for each pregnancy attempt.
You are not bed bound after the egg harvest. However, we do not advise you to engage in strenuous activities immediately after the procedure.
They are later thawed when ready to be used.
Egg Freezing starts at 120k.
– Inclusions: Egg harvesting, egg freezing, storage for a year
– Exclusions: Doctor’s fee, medications, yearly storage after the first year (15k)
Around 15k after the first year.
First, you will meet with your doctor and undergo some preliminary tests. In the next few days, you will be given medications to prepare the uterus for embryo transfer.
Next, your eggs with be thawed, fertilized with sperm using ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), or injected with a single sperm into a single egg, and transferred to your uterus. After 2 weeks, a pregnancy test will be requested to see if you have successfully conceived.
