"A careful clarification of the causes of the unfulfilled desire for children is the first milestone on the way to your desired child."
The first step to the desired child is always a detailed initial conversation. Appointments are possible with us by appointment at any time. We take one hour for each pair so we:
You can contribute to the success of your first conversation with us by bringing all the existing findings with you. With the first interview we lay the foundation for the further steps. Therefore, it is good if we can involve both partners from the beginning. If your time permits, it is an advantage to be a couple on the first call. This first appointment gives you the opportunity to address topics and questions that you are dealing with. Likewise, you can formulate your expectations and express your wishes.
It is important to us that you consult us well, are treated well and feel well overall. The first interview offers you the first opportunity to bring forward all the thoughts that are important to you. We listen and ask questions that help us better understand your situation. Of course, treat your information with the necessary sensitivity.
Each fertility treatment precedes the clarification of the reasons for the previous childlessness. Man and woman are included in this diagnosis. With various investigations we go to the causes of the unfulfilled desire for children to the bottom.
Depending on the individual situation, we carry out one or more different examinations. We discuss all procedures in detail with you and inform you about their course.
The gynecological ultrasound allows a fast, pain-free and reliable diagnosis. Through this vaginal, sonographic examination, we can find out if there are abnormalities in the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes. In addition, ultrasound allows us to more accurately assess the uterine wall and uterine lining. The ultrasound is combined with a palpation examination. This also serves to change, z. B. thickening, to discover. If necessary, a smear will be made during the examination.
We remove secretions from the vagina with a cotton swab. This sample is tested in the laboratory for bacteria and fungi. A smear is only necessary if the last swab was taken more than nine months ago. With these investigations we gain indications of possible illnesses and can draw first conclusions.
To determine if your hormone production is in order, we carry out what are known as endocrinological examinations. This allows us to clarify whether the interaction of your hormones works in the monthly cycle.
A first indication already provides the regularity of your cycle. A cycle covers the period from the first day of the menstrual period to the last day before the next menstruation. This period usually takes 28 days. If your cycle matches this pattern, everything is usually fine. Frequent bleeding or an irregular cycle, however, indicate hormonal imbalances.
For pregnancy, open and functional fallopian tubes are an important prerequisite. Once the spermatozoa or fertilized ovum has moved to the uterus, the desire to become naturally pregnant remains unfulfilled. Therefore, it is of great importance for the fertility treatment to test the patency of the fallopian tubes.
For this we carry out an ultrasound examination of the fallopian tubes. This so-called Hydro Contrast Sonography (HyCoSy) is an almost risk-free and gentle examination. A catheter is inserted into the vagina and a contrast agent injected into the uterus. This contrast agent empties from the uterus into the fallopian tubes. This makes it very clear in the ultrasound whether both fallopian tubes are open or whether a closure disturbs the patency.
In some women, this study has not only diagnostic effect, but also therapeutic: After this "flushing" increases the natural pregnancy rate in the following three months.
The fertility of a man depends on his sperm (sperm). With a semen test (semenogram) we check the fertilization ability of the sperm.
In a conversation before the examination, we analyze the medical history and explain the course of the investigation:
The spermiogram gives us information about the number of sperm, their mobility and their shape. We also check the ph value and some other criteria. If the test results are outside the normal range, further examinations can clarify or initiate necessary therapies. Often there is no evidence of limited fertility in the results. Nevertheless, the spermiogram helps us to fulfill your wish for a child.
Because we use all the test results to determine which treatments or methods of artificial insemination come into question for you.
That depends on your individual situation.
Man and woman are included in the diagnosis. We discuss all necessary examinations in detail with you and inform you about the procedure. Possible investigations include an ultrasound examination of the woman, the determination of the hormone status of the woman, the examination of the tubal patency (HyCoSy) and a semen test (spermiogram) in men.
The initial interview serves to get to know each other, to clarify your medical history and to develop a strategy for your further treatment. Contribute to the success of your first conversation with us by bringing all existing findings. Use our "Initial interview checklist" for your preparation. This first appointment with us gives you the opportunity to address topics and questions that you are dealing with. You can formulate your expectations and express your wishes.

As a rule, we conduct an ultrasound examination on the woman during the initial interview in order to gain a first insight into your situation.
The so-called Hydro Contrast Sonography (HyCoSy) is an almost risk-free and gentle examination. It lasts around five to ten minutes. This may cause mild, menstrual pain that quickly fades away.
No, the examination is performed on an outpatient basis without anesthesia.
No, as a rule, the examinations remain complication free. In very rare cases, as a result of a HyCoSy, allergic reactions to the contrast agent or to uterine inflammation occur.
In principle, this would be possible, but we prefer if the semen sample is obtained from us in the Wunschkind-Klinik. We provide you with a discreet space in which your privacy is maintained. The main reason is that no more than 60 minutes should elapse between ejaculation and examination of the sperm. The temperature also plays an important role. In addition, only special containers may be used to prevent contamination of the semen sample.
In the clinic, the optimal conditions are met to enable a precise semen findings.
We examine the spermogram quickly. Usually you get the results after 30 minutes.
