artificial insemination (IVF) - ISCI, PSCI

You want nothing more than a baby? It does not work the natural way? With the methods of artificial insemination (assisted reproduction) we have already helped many couples. We use our wealth of experience and support you in your desire for children. In order to fulfill your wish for a child, we use all the necessary possibilities of modern medicine. With the methods of artificial insemination we help heterosexual as well as lesbian couples to a pregnancy.In all methods of assisted reproduction, fertilization does not take place in the woman's body, but is carried out in the laboratory of the fertility center.

We offer you these types of artificial insemination:

  • In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
  • Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
  • P-ICSI (Physiological ICSI)

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In Vitro Fertilization has been used since 1978 in the fertility treatment. It's been a tried and tested method for decades, and the best known method of helping a childless couple to have a child.

It is suitable for various medical indications:

  • For closed fallopian tubes.
  • In the absence of seed or inadequate seed quality.
  • For various hormonal disorders.

In vitro fertilization involves removing the egg from the ovary and then placing it in the test tube with the man's sperm. Fertilization in the test tube takes place naturally, without medical intervention. If the fertilization works, we put the resulting embryo into the uterus two to five days later.

How does an IVF work in detail?

First meeting

If a pair of children with an unfulfilled desire to have a baby contact us, we always start the path of fertility treatment with a detailed initial consultation. This serves to get to know each other and you get first information. We discuss your medical history and make a first clarification of your situation. With the first interview, we lay the informative and emotional foundation for further treatment and care. It should give you a first orientation.

Therefore, your questions and wishes play a central role in this appointment.

Detailed diagnostics

Every treatment requires careful investigation. In doing so, we get an accurate picture of why your desire for a child has remained unfulfilled so far.

As a rule, we perform these investigations on women:

  • ultrasound
  • cycle observations
  • Hormone examinations
  • If necessary, we do a uterine or abdominal reflection.

In the case of men, these investigations are carried out:

  • Control of the seed
  • Ultrasound of the testicle
  • Hormone examinations
  • If necessary, a tissue sample is taken directly from the testicles.

If we discover that IVF is the most promising method for you, we will work with you to determine the treatment plan and coordinate all steps exactly. We will inform you in detail about the treatment. It is also important for us to give you enough time to deal with the topic. Feel free to ask questions or doubts at any time.
We are there for you and your concerns.

"We advise and treat you sensitively and according to the latest scientific findings. Through our work, we help you realize your desire for a family. "

 

In vitro fertilization usually proceeds according to this scheme:

  1. Hormone Treatment
    At the beginning of treatment, most women undergo hormone treatment. With special hormone preparations, we suppress the natural hormone secretion and thus prevent ovulation. About two weeks later we start ovarian stimulation.
    You will receive hormone injections over ten days, which you or your partner can give you. The drug contained in it stimulates the ovaries. Subsequently, several follicles mature at the same time. This increases the chance that we can win several fertilizable oocytes. We monitor the hormone treatment with you very carefully and are at your disposal, if you are uncertain or have questions.
  2. Initiation of ovulation
    If the hormone stimulation has been running for a week already, we check the size and maturation of your eggs by means of an ultrasound examination. As soon as the diameter of the individual vesicle is about 18 millimeters, we consider the egg to be mature and fertile. This is the right time to start ovulation.
  3. Taking the egg
    About 36 hours after we have caused ovulation, we take you egg cells from the mature follicle. This procedure is called follicle puncture. It is performed through the vagina and painless in almost all cases. For this you will receive a sleep aid that has an analgesic, anxiolytic and calming effect (sedoanalgesia). The procedure takes about 10 minutes and is also monitored by an anesthesiologist. Then we ask you to stay in our rest room for a while, until the effect of the sleeping aid has completely subsided.
  4. Fertilization in the laboratory
    We use fresh or frozen (cryopreserved) semen for the fertilization of the oocytes taken. In a discreet room with us in the Fertility Clinic, the man can provide (through masturbation) fresh sperm. Previously frozen semenwe thaw in the laboratory in good time. Before we put the sperm cells in the Petri dish to the egg cells, they are processed. So we can improve their fertilization ability. United in a nutrient solution, we then put eggs and sperm in an incubator. Now it is time to wait until the fertilization has happened. It is ours always that at least 80% of all oocytes taken are fertilized.
  5. Transfer of embryos to the uterus
    The fertilized egg cells produce embryos that can develop in the incubator for three to five days. Then they can be inserted into the uterus. We carry out the transmission on the second to a maximum of six days after egg collection. Usually we put one to two embryos in the uterus. For women under the age of 38, it is recommended that only one embryo be transferred during the first two IVF treatments. Thus, the number of multiple pregnancies can be limited. This procedure is performed by the vagina and produces little or no pain. Afterwards, we will work with you to see if the embryo is successfully implanting and developing in the uterus. Our stated goal for all our patients is to achieve pregnancy in as few as one treatment cycle.
  6. Track progress
    After two weeks we will do a blood test. Using the pregnancy hormone HCG we can determine if you are pregnant. Four weeks after the embryo transfer, we can detect by ultrasound whether the embryo lives. If several embryos have been used, there is the possibility of multiple births.

Chances of success of an in vitro fertilization

The chance of getting pregnant through IVF treatment is 50% per cycle. The birth rate is 35% per treatment course. The success depends not only on the fact that the treatment itself is uncomplicated. The probability of pregnancy is also influenced by the age of the couple, the hormonal situation and the lifestyle. Obesity, stress, nicotine and excessive consumption of alcohol can reduce the chance of success.

ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)

ICSI is the most common fertility treatment. It helps especially couples, in which the fertility of the man is severely limited.

In these situations, ICSI is the method of choice:

  • The vas deferens are missing.
  • The vas deferens is closed.
  • The spermatic ducts are closed, preventing sperm from entering the semen (obstructive azoospermia).
  • The formation of spermatozoa in the testicles is disturbed. As a result, the semen contains no or very few fertile sperm (non-obstructive azoospermia).
  • Semen contains sperm antibodies. Natural fertilization is difficult.
  • Only frozen sperm cells are available. This is the case for example after cancer. Lesbian couples also use cryopreserved sperm from a sperm bank.

How does an ICSI work?

The course of an ICSI corresponds for the most part to that of in vitro fertilization. However, in an ICSI, a single spermatozoa is injected directly into one of the ova with a needle. This increases the probability of fertilization. If the fertilization is successful, the resulting embryo is transferred to the woman's uterus on the second to sixth day after taking the egg. The further procedure corresponds to that with an IVF treatment.

Chances of success of an ICSI?

The prospects of ICSI are similar to those of IVF. The pregnancy rate is 50% per cycle. The birth rate is 35% per treatment course.

P-ICSI (Physiological ICSI)

In a P-ICSI, sperm are selected for ICSI. Mature sperm are separated from immature by a hyaluronic acid pre-test. In mature sperm hyaluron is a fixed component of their shell. Immature sperm do not have this component. Using this procedure we select a mature sperm cell under the microscope for ICSI treatment..

Sensitive and prudent

Artificial insemination is a challenge for most couples. It is a sensitive, very personal topic.

Therefore, we attach great importance not only to make the best possible physical treatment. We accompany and support you every step of the way. We take your fears and concerns seriously and consider your wishes. If a pregnancy succeeds, then it is a common success. A success that we are particularly pleased about.

Apart from the selection of sperm used, a P-ICSI works the same way as an ICSI.

Fertility decreases with age. The biologically best age for the first child would be the period of 25 to 35 years. At this age, the body is the most resilient.

With age, the prospect of a successful fertility treatment decreases. Therefore, couples who want to start a family should not wait too long. The younger, the higher the chance of success.

If excess oocytes fall in the first treatment cycle, they can be cryopreserved.

In another attempt, the woman can thus be spared the hormonal stimulation.

In one treatment cycle, several eggs are usually fertilized, but the woman uses a maximum of two embryos. The surplus embryos are cryopreserved and thus available for another treatment cycle.
