In-Vitro Fertilization




Mahkota IVF Centre commenced its service in July 1997 with the aim of helping infertile couples fulfill their dreams of bearing children through fertility treatments. To date, it remains as the only fertility centre located in Melaka.


The Set Up

Staffed with experienced and dedicated gynaecologists, embryologists and nursing staff, Mahkota IVF Centre is a one-stop centre equipped with in-house laboratories, procedure rooms and patient recovery beds for patients’ convenience and privacy.


Clinical Performance

Since its inception, the Centre has helped about 833 couples deliver about 1052 babies via various assisted reproductive techniques. These include 180 sets of twins, 18 sets of triplets and a set of quadruplet.

Currently, the Centre has performed more than 1,500 IVF (ICSI) procedures with success rates of about 50%. The younger the patient is, the higher the chances of success and these pregnancy rates are also comparable to the success rates of renowned fertility centres in Europe and US.

Types of assisted reproductive techniques

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

IUI is a painless and the simplest form of treatment available for infertile couples. On the day of the procedure, semen is collected from the partner and is subjected to a purification process in order to isolate the active and motile sperm. The purified sample is then inseminated into the uterine (womb) cavity of the woman by using a catheter.


In-Vitro-Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is commonly known as the “test-tube” technique. The IVF procedure involves the collection of eggs from the ovary and fertilisation of the eggs in the laboratory with purified sperm. The fertile eggs are then cultured for a few days before a small selection of resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus for implantation.


Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI involves the injection of a single human sperm cell, which can be retrieved using various techniques such as Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA) and Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE), through the zona and right into the cytoplasm of the egg.

ICSI is used when the infertility problem is due to male factors such as poor sperm quality or low production of sperm.


Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)

IVF/ICSI patients who failed to conceive during the fresh IVF/ICSI cycle or want to conceive again in future can freeze and store all excess potential embryos during their fresh cycle. These frozen embryos can be transferred into the uterus via FET procedure at a future date without the need to undergo the whole IVF/ICSI procedure again.
