Hormonal treatments

Hormonal disorders are often the reason why the desire to have children is not achieved naturally over a longer period of time. In 30 to 40 percent of all women, the unfulfilled wish to have a child is due to a hormonal disorder. But even in men there are hormonal disorders.

Our hormone treatments help you to rebalance your hormones. Some patients become naturally pregnant after hormone treatment. For others, hormone therapies provide the basis for successful artificial insemination or insemination.

Important hormones for in the wish for children

The sex hormones importantfor having children serve these purposes:

  • Clomiphene, FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and HMG (human menopausal gonadotropin) stimulate the ovaries and cause the female's follicles to ripen.
  • Estrogen is formed by the maturing ovarian follicle and ensures a good structure of the uterine mucosa.
  • Progesterone (corpus luteum hormone)  prepares for the implantation of the fertilzed egg.
  • HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) triggers ovulation.

They are responsible for allowing the fertilized egg to nest in the endometrium.

If the hormone balance is disturbed, this process no longer works smoothly. Many women do not even know that there is a disorder. They have a normal monthly cycle and only learn through the relevant studies that they will not get pregnant due to a hormonal imbalance.

Typical hormonal disorders in unfulfilled desire for children

The three most common hormone disorders that occur in the absence of pregnancy are:

  1. PCO syndrome (polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome). In affected women, there are many follicles in the ovaries. But ovulation seldom or never happens.
  2. endometriosis. It occurs predominantly in women between the ages 30 and 40 years. The tissue of the uterine lining proliferates. It is a benign growth, but it is painful. The excess tissue leads to a closure of the fallopian tubes or disturbs the egg maturation. Often this affects the mobility of the fallopian tube so that the egg can not be transported properly.
  3. luteal weakness. The corpus luteum prepares the uterus for the implantation of the fertilized egg. Too little corpus luteum leads to problems in the implantation of the egg and sometimes to miscarriages.

We start each treatment with a detailed initial consultation and a comprehensive examination. If you have results from hormone testing, please bring them with you. We start with hormone treatment by first closely observing your cycle. By means of ultrasound and blood tests we check the size of the maturing vesicles as well as the growth of the uterine lining on different days of the cycle. That's how we can determine where we can best start with hormone treatment.

Depending on your situation, we use hormone therapy to achieve one of these goals:

  • Stabilize your menstrual cycle.
  • Stimulate the maturation of oocytes.
  • Cause an ovulation.

The hormone treatment is done with tablets or with syringes that you or your partner can administer. During the entire treatment period, we closely observe the maturing egg so we can determine the exact time of ovulation.

After receiving hormone treatment and knowing the best time in the cycle, about one in three women becomes pregnant naturally.  Sometimes several treatments are necessary until the wish for a child is fulfilled.

Hormone treatments for insemination and artificial insemination

Women who do not get pregnant naturally after several hormonal treatments have more options for treatment.

With an insemination or an artificial insemination we fulfill many couples’ desire for a child. Targeted advance hormone treatmentincreases our chances of success. Because hormonal stimulation produces several fertilizable oocytes, this increases the likelihood that fertilization will work if sperm is transferred to the uterus during insemination. In the same way, it improves the chances of getting pregnant if we can find several suitable ova for artificial insemination.

Presice dosage and careful control

Hormone therapies can have unpleasant side effects. In some patients, the treatment leads to hot flashes, dizziness or blurred vision. In rare cases overstimulation occurs.

In order for your hormone treatment to be as gentle as possible, we attach great importance to it:

  • By careful diagnostics in advance, we can optimally tailor the treatment to you.
  • We take care to carry out the hormone therapy with presice dosage. We act according to the motto "as much as necessary, as little as possible".
  • We make every effort to limit the burden on you as much as possible.
  • We closely monitor the course of treatment so we can respond anytime if there are side effects.
  • We are there for you if you are uncertain and have questions. We are at your side if you need assistance.

Hormone therapy in men

Hormonal disorders are not just about women. Even in men, the hormone balance can get out of whack. The sex hormone testosterone plays an especially important role in sperm production. A lack of testosterone reduces fertility and can lead to erectile or ejaculation disorders. Sperm quality can also be impaired.

Hormonal disorders in men can have different causes. Negative stress, alcohol and smoking can be just as responsible for the reduced fertility as inflammation or injury. It is important to clarify why the hormone balance is off track. A hormone therapy can provide relief and contribute significantly to the success of having children.

Depending on the individual situation, the appropriate therapy is carried out:

  • Capsules taken daily
  • Injections
  • Administration of other hormones that stimulate semen production
