Involuntary infertility can have different causes. TFP is Northern and Central Europe's largest fertility provider, where our experts share experience and knowledge across borders. We would like to give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the full range of services we can offer.
IVF (in vitro fertilisation) is a method of assisted fertilisation. In this method, the egg is not fertilised with the sperm cell in the woman's body, but in the laboratory. About 100,000 sperm cells are added to each egg in a small dish. Fertilisation then takes place 'naturally' by only one sperm cell being accepted by the egg. The method is called "in vitro", which simply means "in a glass jar".
If you are unsuccessful in conceiving naturally, we can perform an insemination. This involves injecting sperm into the woman's uterus. This makes it easier and quicker for the sperm to reach the fallopian tube, where the egg is fertilised.
Microinsemination, also called Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), is an advanced form of IVF treatment. Microinsemination is used primarily for reduced sperm quality. Fertilisation is achieved by inserting a single sperm cell directly into the woman's egg under a microscope. This gives a better chance of fertilisation if there are few sperm or other reasons why IVF cannot be used.
In some cases, the man's sperm contains no or few sperm cells. This can be seen, for example, in blocked sperm ducts. This is called azoospermia (no sperm) or oligozoospermia (few sperm). If the semen does not contain sperm, in some cases it may be possible to collect the sperm directly from the testicles. This procedure is called TESA/TESE.
In cases of infertility, hormone treatment can increase the chances of achieving pregnancy.
If you have received frozen fertilised eggs from IVF treatment, these can be used in FER treatment.
A small plastic tube containing the thawed, fertilised egg is inserted into the uterus under ultrasound guidance. To start this treatment, call or write to the clinic on the first day of your period.
Donor sperm may be required for fertility treatment. For many, this may be the only way to achieve pregnancy.
We are experiencing an increasing demand for egg donation. That's why we have a dedicated egg donation team here at the clinic, who coordinate everything around egg donation. This includes those who need egg donation, those who need double donation (i.e. eggs and sperm) or those who want to donate their eggs to a woman or couple who need just that.
Embryo transfer is usually a very simple procedure. For most people, however, having a fertilised egg placed in their womb is a very special moment in their fertility treatment. Pregnancy can begin.
