Your treatment options for infertility
Involuntary infertility can have many causes, and often, it is a combination of different factors. Therefore, the initial conversation with you is an especially important part of the treatment. Our expert team at TFP Ciconia Fertility recommends the best fertility treatment for your individual situation and accompanies you with great knowledge and empathy throughout the process.
At TFP Ciconia Fertility in Aarhus, we offer IVF treatment, insemination and egg donation. We have many years of experience in egg donation and a skilled egg donation team to coordinate the process.
In our laboratories, we make use of RI Witness, which is a state-of-the-art tracking and monitoring system that keeps your eggs, sperm and embryos safe.
IVF (in vitro fertilisation) is a method used for assisted fertilisation. In this method, the egg and sperm do not fuse in the woman's body, but in the laboratory in a test tube. This is why the method is also called "in-vitro", which means "in a glass jar".
If you are unsuccessful in getting pregnant in the traditional way, we can carry out an insemination. This involves injecting sperm into the woman's womb. This facilitates the sperm's journey from the vagina through the cervix and onwards.
Microinsemination, also called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), is an advanced form of IVF treatment. In microinsemination, the woman’s eggs are retrieved, and then a single sperm cell is inserted directly into the woman's egg under a microscope. The method has been used since 1992 and differs from conventional IVF treatment, where eggs are fertilised by adding many sperm cells to each egg.
In some cases, a man's sperm contains no or only a few healthy sperm cells. This is called azoospermia or oligozoospermia/cryptozoospermia. If the sperm does not contain sperm cells, you can often extract the sperm with TESE.
In cases of infertility, hormone treatment can increase the chances of achieving pregnancy. Often, infertility is caused by hormonal imbalances. Although hormonal imbalances can be found in both men and women, it is most often the woman who receives hormone treatment.
We are experiencing an increasing demand for egg donation. That's why we have a dedicated egg donation team here at the clinic to 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 wish to donate their eggs to a woman or couple.
If you have received frozen fertilised eggs through IVF treatment, these can be used in an 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.
