We understand that fertility treatment involves much more than a diagnosis and a treatment plan. At TFP, we treat you holistically and advise you on all matters relating to a decision to undergo fertility treatment. Our experienced team of doctors and specialists will support you with knowledge and empathy.

Glossary

Fertility treatments often come with a lot of terms and confusing abbreviations. We've compiled a list of some of the most used vocabulary to help.

Inability to conceive

An inability to conceive is often caused by a combination of different factors, both environmental and physical. In your initial consultation and the subsequent treatments, our doctors will be happy to advise you in detail about the various influencing factors and what you can do to increase your chances of getting pregnant

Hormonal problems

Hormones play a key role in your body. As the body’s messengers, they control a wealth of biological processes – including vast areas of female and male reproductive physiology. A hormonal problem can therefore be the reason why you have not been able to become pregnant yet.

Causes of infertility

In our centres, fertility treatment is always determined by your individual case. During your initial consultation, we will first have a detailed discussion with you to highlight different aspects of childlessness and explain the possible causes. The reasons for involuntary childlessness are usually a complex interplay of different factors and are attributable to men and women alike. That is why at our centres we always examine both partners.

High-risk pregnancy

There are many different factors that contribute to a high-risk pregnancy – general lifestyle and organ health, as well as hormonal and genetic causes can all play a role.

Miscarriages and fertility treatment

About 15 % of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. A large part of these terminations occur in the early stages of pregnancy, before the women even realise that they are pregnant. There is also a risk of miscarriage for insemination, ICSI and IVF. However, reproductive medicine has advanced so rapidly in recent years that the odds of successful treatment continue to increase. Our international network of centres aims to identify, through comprehensive diagnosis, the possible risk factors for your pregnancy and find solutions to minimise the risk of miscarriage.
