In case of ambiguous symptoms (e.g. fever, severe cough), please refrain from visiting our centres and surgeries and contact us over the phone for a telephone or video consultation. We ask for your understanding that we do not provide treatment for suspected cases, as we would otherwise also be putting others at risk.



Our actions in our TFP fertility centres are guided by one basic value: that we care for our patients and staff. This consistent value helps us to be strident in our tackling of coronavirus (COVID-19).



Because we care about the well-being of our patients and staff, we adhere to the constantly updated guidelines of the ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) and the federal government.



We make every effort to keep you informed about the latest developments. We have compiled the most frequently asked questions and hope to be able to answer yours here.

Your questions about COVID-19

What effect does the coronavirus have on my unborn child?

As the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is a novel virus, the empirical evidence on this is still in its early stages. So far, the evidence suggests that the virus does not pose a risk to your unborn child. Furthermore, in the 20 pregnancies so far in which the expectant mothers were infected with the virus, no transmission of the virus to the baby has been identified. Moreover, no abnormalities were found in the mothers and their babies. Further information from the German Society for Gynaecology and Obstetrics e.V. (DGGG) and the Professional Association of Gynaecologists (BVF) can be found united in a publication of the German Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (GBCOG). You can find more on the DGGG page.

What should I look out for on my next visit to the fertility centre?

Due to the current circumstances and the risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2, we ask for your understanding for the increased hygiene requirements and changes to our process flows:

  • Please wait in your vehicle and/or in front of the clinic and contact our reception by telephone.

  • We will call you as soon as you can keep your appointment at the clinic.

  • Please get out of your vehicle, put on a standard mouth/nose protection (or obtain it from us) and come to the main entrance.

  • When entering the clinic, disinfect your hands according to the instructions (you will find these at the disinfectant dispenser) before proceeding to our reception.

  • The receptionist there will familiarise you with our hygiene instructions and inform you about the further procedures and your treatment. This is also where you can obtain mouth and nose protection if you do not have one.

What can I do now to prepare for treatment?

Right now, it is important to strengthen our immune system to prepare our body and mind both for the current situation and also treatment after this crisis. A healthy and balanced diet is the best basic prerequisite for a strong immune system. This is because a good supply of nutrients gives the body many opportunities to successfully fight off pathogens. In addition, sufficient sleep and water intake are very important. If you drink at least two litres of water or unsweetened tea every day, you will strengthen your body's defences immensely. Also, wash your hands regularly and make sure to keep a physical distance of 1.5 to 2 metres from your fellow human beings. Exercise in the fresh air is also highly recommended.
