Involuntary childlessness can have various causes. We would like to give you the opportunity to thoroughly familiarize yourself with the entire range of services we can offer.
In vitro fertilisering (IVF)
IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a method of assisted fertilization. With this method, the egg is not fertilized with the sperm in the woman’s body, but rather in the laboratory. To each egg, add approx. 100,000 sperm cells in a small bowl. Fertilization then takes place “naturally” in that only a single sperm cell is released into the egg. The method is called “in-vitro”, which literally means “in glass”.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
Microinsemination, also called Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), is an advanced form of IVF treatment. Microinsemination is primarily used for reduced sperm quality. Fertilization takes place when a single sperm cell is introduced directly into the woman’s egg under a microscope. This gives a greater chance of fertilization if there are few sperm cells or another reason why IVF cannot be used.
If it is not possible to get pregnant naturally, we can carry out an insemination. Here, the sperm is injected into the woman’s uterus. This makes it easier and faster for the sperm to reach the fallopian tube, where the egg is fertilized.
In some cases, the man’s semen contains no or only few sperm cells. It can, for example, seen in blocked vas deferens. It is called azoospermia (no sperm cells) or oligozoospermia (few sperm cells). If the semen does not contain sperm cells, in some cases it may be possible to retrieve the sperm directly from the testicles. This procedure is called TESA/TESE.
In case of involuntary childlessness, hormone treatment can increase the chances of achieving pregnancy.
Treatment with eggs from the freezer (FER)
If you have frozen fertilized eggs via an IVF treatment, these can be used in a FER treatment.
A small plastic tube with the thawed fertilized egg is guided into the uterus under ultrasound guidance. To start this treatment, call or write to the clinic on the first day of bleeding.
Embryo transfer is usually a very simple procedure. For most, however, it is a very special moment in their fertility treatment, when they get a fertilized egg placed in the woman’s uterus. Pregnancy can begin.
We are experiencing an increasing demand for egg donation. That is why we have a dedicated egg donation team at our clinics who coordinate everything about egg donation. This applies both to you who need egg donation, to you who need double donation (i.e. egg and sperm) or to you who want to donate your eggs to a woman or a couple who need just that.
In connection with fertility treatment, it may be necessary to use donor sperm. For many, it may be the only option to achieve pregnancy.
