With the help of our advice, you can decide on what form of fertility treatment you prefer and what additional treatments to have depending on the results of examinations and your personal situation. At the Kinderwunsch Institut we offer the following treatment options that will assist you to have the child you have longed for so that your life will be transformed:
The best point in time to try to get pregnant is some 78 - 24 hours prior to ovulation. It is during this phase that there is the greatest chance of a successful fertilisation. Cycle monitoring will thus
reveal exactly when the optimum time comes round so that you can get comfy in your bedroom and have intercourse.
By administering hormones, it is possible to stimulate the ovaries to produce more follicles. The hormones need to be carefully dosed and have a direct dose-related effect. They are given by subcutaneous injection, a painless and safe procedure. Even couples with a phobia of injections realise after the first injection that the process is both easy and effective.
This procedure is often used in cases in which the man's sperm quality is poor, either because the sperm count is too low or the spermatozoa are insufficiently mobile. In this case, appropriately processed sperm of the male partner can be used or donor sperm from our sperm bank. The latter gives lesbian couples the option of an easily achieved pregnancy.
If the fallopian tubes are blocked or the sperm is of poor quality, then in vitro fertilisation (IVF) is an option for becoming pregnant. In this procedure, an egg is artificially fertilised in the laboratory. The egg is inseminated with the prepared sperm in a test tube where spontaneous fertilisation takes place. This means that there is natural section of high quality spermatozoa. We have two patented methods called IVF pure and IVF active, which are hormone- free and hormone-assisted variants.
ICSI is a further option. This can be used if the quality of sperm of the male partner is poor because of a low count, limited mobility or abnormal form of spermatozoa. The spermatozoa are introduced into a hypodermic needle and injected directly into the prepared egg. In this way, successful fertilisation can be achieved in spite of a low-quality semen result.
In the case of testicular sperm extraction (TESE), a small piece of testicular tissue is obtained by means of surgery and the spermatozoa are extracted from it; these can then be used for PICSI. Testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) is less invasive than TESE and can be used, for example, if there is blockage of the vas deferens.
There are various reasons why some men are unable to produce any spermatozoa. To meet their desire to have a child nevertheless, we can offer sperm samples obtained from selected and carefully vetted donors.
Use of donated eggs is an option for women in whom several IVF procedures have proved unsuccessful, particularly if they have poor egg quality or a genetic disorder that could be inherited by the child. It is possible using preimplantation diagnostic techniques to determine if there is an indication for the use of a donated egg. Preceding chemotherapy, ovarian surgery or the congenital absence of ovaries are further reasons for taking the use of a donated egg into consideration.
