IVF is the most common fertility treatment, and it involves an egg being mixed with sperm in a lab. If the egg becomes fertilised after a couple of days, the egg is then implanted into the uterus of the person with female organs, and if everything goes well, pregnancy takes place.
ICSI is an additional procedure that can take place during a cycle of IVF if chances of pregnancy with the sperm being used is relatively low. A single, healthy, treated sperm is injected directly into the egg, which is then watched to see if fertilisation takes place. Then, the regular IVF cycle can resume.
A less invasive and usually cheaper procedure, interuterine insemination is a great option for those using donor sperm, or if mild fertility dysfunction in the sperm carrier is the cause of infertility.
In the case that there is no sperm in the ejaculate, it may be possible to extract sperm through a biopsy from the testicular tissue (TESE) and used for artificial insemination via ICSI.
To improve chances of success, the person with female organs is given an injection of the fertility hormones LH and FSH before artificial insemination. This helps with egg maturation and ovulation before treatment.
If more eggs are taken than are required for an IVF/ICSI cycle, then these can be saved and used later for another cycle of artificial insemination.
An important stage in any artificial fertilisation cycle, this is the fast and painless implanting of the embryo into the uterus.
It is also possible to transfer embryos (usually with IVF/ICSI cycles) that have reached the blastocyst stage on day five, which offers great results.
TFP has a large pool of sperm donor, all vetted and approved, across it's network of clinics. This means both same-sex and hetero couples looking for donor sperm are likely to find a perfect match with us.
Sample mix-ups in the IVF laboratory are extremely rare, but when they occur, they have serious consequences for patients. Obviously, they must be avoided at all costs. This is where RI Witness comes in. All culture dishes and tubes are marked with the utmost care and labelled with the patient's name and birthday, a unique patient ID, colour code or a combination.
Each egg has the genetic material of the mother in the form of chromosomes. If the chromosomes are sequenced incorrectly, pregnancy may not occur, or it may be terminated at an early stage. Polar body diagnosis helps to ensure these abnormalities are caught at an early stage, to avoid the risk of prolonged infertility or recurrent miscarriages.
Refertilisation surgery and IVF are two options to reverse sterilisation, the surgical production of permanent contraception for women who have completed their family planning. If, contrary to original considerations, there is still a desire to have a child at a later date, surgical restoration of tubal patency is a possibility.
With the help of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), both physical and emotional symptoms that occur before and during infertility therapy are treated. This service is playing an increasingly important role in infertility therapy.
Also known as egg freezing, when someone with healthy eggs wishes to start a family later, whether that be for social or medical reasons, this treatment is a great option. As fertility of female organs declines quickly after 30, having fertility treatment with frozen eggs can increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy later on.
Treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation can negative impact fertility. That's why TFP Fertility is a member of FertiPROTEKT Netzwerk e.V., which has promoted the coverage of costs for fertility-protective measures.
