Deciding on fertility treatment


We'll conduct an initial patient interview and a few comprehensive tests on both partners to ensure we have the best overview of your situation. We'll apply our 35+ years of experience to suggesting fertility treatment that can help you conceive, or to grow your family in any way possible.

IVF

IVF involves maturing egg cells, before extracting them and mixing them externally with sperm. If fertilisation is successful, usually two embryos will be transferred to the womb after two to five days.

In vitro fertilisation

ICSI

If chances of IVF implantation are low due to a limited number of healthy sperm, ICSI can help. Here, a healthy sperm and egg are introduced to each other via a micro-injection in the lab. Embryos are then implanted into the uterus and, hopefully, conception occurs.

ICSI sperm injection

IUI

IUI is a less invasive form of artificial insemination. During a woman's ovulation (triggered via hormone stimulation), the previously prepared sperm of her partner or donor is transferred directly into the uterus via a catheter.

Intrauterine insemination

TESE/MESA

If no sperm in the man’s ejaculation is capable of fertilising an egg, it may be possible to extract sperm from the epididymis (MESA) or through a biopsy from the testicular tissue (TESE) and used for artificial insemination via ICSI.

Sperm aspiration sperm extraction

Hormone treatment

Hormone therapy is used for egg cell maturation and ovulation, and is controlled with an injection of the fertility hormones LH and FSH before artificial insemination.

Cryopreservation

Sometimes more healthy eggs are extracted than is needed for a cycle of IVF or ICSI. If this is the case, we can freeze them for future cycles, or for donation.

Gynaecological surgery

If the person with female organs requires gynecological surgery to improve their chances for success, they can have it with us.

Surgical interventions in fertility treatment

Embryo transfer

Embryos obtained during treatment outside the body are transferred through the vagina and cervix using a very thin catheter. The process is typically fast and painless.

Embryo transfer

Blastocyst transfer

It is possible to transfer embryos (usually through IVF/ICSI) that have reached the blastocyst stage on day five. This day usually offers the best chances of a successful pregnancy.

Sperm donation

Artificial insemination with donor sperm can help both heterosexual and same-sex couples. With a pool of 150 approved donors, TFP fertility centres offer excellent profiles to choose from.

RI Witness

Though rare, sample mix-ups in the IVF laboratory have serious consequences for patients and we avoid them at all costs. This is why we use RI Witness, which identifies each test tube and sample with a unique ID to ensure that no mistakes happen.

PBD

Polar body diagnosis (PBD) is a method for the genetic analysis of eggs before the end of fertilisation. Each egg has the genetic material of the mother in the form of chromosomes, and if these are sequenced incorrectly, pregnancy may not occur, or it may be terminated at an early stage. An investigation can help to pinpoint this.

PGT

During pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT), we will conduct a check of the genetics of each embryo before it is transferred to the womb. This is used to prevent congenital genetic disorders in children of couples with genetic risk factors.

Social freezing

Those with healthy eggs and of childbearing age have the option of freezing their eggs, to be used in fertility treatment in the future. This is particularly useful if the patient isn't ready for children, or is suffering from an illness, e.g., cancer, where treatment may damage the eggs.

FertiPROTEKT

Treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation can limit the future fertility. TFP Fertility is a member of FertiPROTEKT Netzwerk e.V., which assists patients of fertility preservation with health insurance companies.
