Fertility treatment as individual as your family

There are many reasons for not being able to conceive, but often, it’s an interplay of various factors that makes every situation unique. We get to know you so that your fertility treatment has the best possible chance of success.

What are my fertility treatment options?


We'll be on hand to offer our experience and state-of-the-art equipment every step of the way. We'll start with speaking with you to get to know you and your situation, before conducting tests to get to the root cause of any infertility. We'll then suggest treatment tailored to you and work with you to create a treatment plan that you're confident in.

IVF

In vitro fertilisation literally refers to a medical procedure whereby an egg is fertilised by sperm in a test tube or elsewhere outside the body. This egg is then implanted into the person with female organ's uterus, and if everything goes to plan, pregnancy occurs.

In vitro fertilisation

ICSI

If the number of suitable sperm is too low and chances of a successful IVF cycle are limited, the extracted eggs can be injected with a sperm cell, and therefore more easily fertilised, in the laboratory.

ICSI sperm injection

IUI

This form of insemination involves washed and vetted sperm being inserted into the uterus via the vaginal passage. It's a useful option for those using donor sperm, or where there is a male fertility dyfunction.

Intrauterine insemination

TESE

If fertilisation cannot take place due to a low sperm count, it may be possible to extract sperm through a biopsy from the testicular tissue (TESE) and used in an ICSI treatment.

Hormone treatment

Additional hormones are often used in treatments to ensure egg cell maturation is stimulated and ovulation controlled. The hormones used are LH and FSH and they're injected before artificial insemination.

Hormones for fertility treatment

Cryopreservation

If more eggs are extracted after hormone treatment than are required for an IVF/ICSI cycle, we can freeze them carefully and use them for another cycle of artificial insemination, or prepare them for donation.

Embryo transfer

A certain number of embryos after a successful fertilisation are transferred through the vagina and cervix into the uterine cavity. This is done using a very thin catheter, and the procedure is usually painless and quick.

Embryo transfer

Blastocyst transfer

It is possible to transfer embryos (usually through IVF/ICSI) that have reached the blastocyst stage on day 5. This makes the outlook for pregnancy particularly good.

Sperm donation

If there is a male factor which means extracting sperm is impossible, or in the case of same-sex couples, artificial insemination with donor sperm is a great option for having a child. We have a large portfolio of vetted and approved donors across our partnership, to ensure patients can find a donor that suits them.

RI Witness

Though extremely rare, sample mix-ups in the IVF laboratory have serious consequences. At TFP we use RI Witness technology, whereby culture dishes and tubes are marked with the patient's name and birthday, unique ID, colour code or with a combination of these elements.

PBD

Sometimes chromosomes can be sequenced incorrectly which can result in a failed pregnancy, or no pregnancy at all. This applies to both pregnancies that occurred naturally and pregnancies resulting from IVF. With PBD, we check chromosomes at an early stage to minimise these risks.

PGT

Like PBD, Pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) involves specialist genetic investigations pre-pregnancy. Rather than chnomosome, fertilised embryos are checked before their transfer to the womb. This is used to prevent congenital genetic disorders in children of couples with genetic risk factors.

Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is playing an increasingly important role in infertility therapy. It is commonly used to treat both physical and emotional issues before and during infertility therapy.

Social freezing

Unfortunately, a woman's fertility declines rapidly with age. Also known as egg freezing, many younger women make use of this treatment to postpone their family planning by freezing their eggs and keeping them safe at our clinic to be used for future fertility treatment.

FertiPROTEKT

Treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation can limit the patient's future fertility as an undesirable side effect. TFP Fertility is a member of FertiPROTEKT Netzwerk e.V., which has promoted the coverage of costs for fertility-protective measures by health insurance companies.
