Fertility treatment as individual as you are

There can be many reasons for not being able to conceive, but often, it’s an interplay of various factors. We conduct a patient interview in our fertility centres to tailor your treatment uniquely to you.

What are my treatment options for assisted fertility?


If there is indeed a fertility disorder present in one or both partners, modern reproductive medicine offers various therapeutic options. Our experienced team will recommend the best treatment for your individual situation and accompany you sensitively during the course of treatment.

IVF

With IVF, matured egg cells are extracted from the woman after hormonal stimulation and put together with approximately 50,000 prepared sperm cells of her partner. The egg cells are fertilised outside the body, without further intervention. If fertilisation is successful, usually two embryos will be transferred to the womb after two to five days.

In vitro fertilisation

ICSI

If there is not a good chance of success with IVF because the number of suitable sperm is too low, the eggs extracted after hormone stimulation can be fertilised in the laboratory through micro-injection with a sperm cell. As with IVF, the embryos thus created are transferred to the uterus.

ICSI sperm injection

Insemination

After ovulation is triggered in the woman through hormone stimulation, the previously prepared sperm of her partner is transferred directly into the uterus via a catheter. Insemination is used, for example, when the man is experiencing mild fertility dysfunction.

Intrauterine insemination

TESE/MESA

If there is no sperm in the man’s ejaculation that is capable of fertilization, 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.

Hormone treatment

With hormone therapy, egg cell maturation is stimulated and ovulation controlled with an injection of the fertility hormones LH and FSH before artificial insemination.

Cryopreservation

If more eggs are extracted after hormone treatment than are required for an IVF/ICSI cycle, these can be carefully frozen and used later for another cycle of artificial insemination.

Gynaecological surgery

There are some surgical procedures which are essential for fertility treatment.

Surgical interventions in fertility treatment

Embryo transfer

The embryos obtained through artificial fertilisation are transferred through the vagina and cervix into the uterine cavity using a very thin catheter. The process is painless for the woman and takes only a few minutes.

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

Artificial insemination with donor sperm can help not only heterosexual couples with fertility problems to have a child, but also same-sex partners. With a pool of 150 approved donors, TFP fertility centres offer the right profile for your planned child.

RI Witness

Sample mix-ups in the IVF laboratory have serious consequences for patients and must be avoided at all costs. Therefore, the culture dishes and tubes are marked with the utmost care by labelling them with the patient's name and birthday, with a unique patient ID, with a colour code or with a combination of these elements.

PBD

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. This applies to both pregnancies that occurred naturally and pregnancies resulting from IVF.

PGT

Pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) involves specialist genetic investigations of embryos before their transfer to the womb. It is used to prevent congenital genetic disorders in children of couples with genetic risk factors.

Refertilisation

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.

Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is playing an increasingly important role in infertility therapy. With its help, both physical and emotional symptoms that occur before and during infertility therapy can be treated.

Social freezing

Women of childbearing age have the possibility of freezing their own unfertilised eggs to increase the chances of pregnancy in later years. Originally developed for cancer patients, many younger women make use of this technology today to postpone their family planning.
