The insemination, the transfer of sperm, is a long-standing established fertility treatment. At the most fertile point in the woman's menstrual cycle, the male's sperm are introduced directly into the uterine cavity. This allows more spermatozoa to reach the egg faster than naturally. We have years of experience with insemination and this treatment has already helped many couples to fulfil their wish of a child.
With semen transfer, we increase the likelihood that you will become pregnant. The treatment is usually painless and proceeds without complications. It only takes a few minutes, but requires good timing.When do we recommend an insemination?
In these situations, we advise you to semen transfer:
Before each treatment, we will conduct a detailed initial consultation with you. This is how we get to know you, your situation and your wishes. You will get a first impression of us and will be able to assess how we handle your request. If you decide to do a treatment with us, we will do all the necessary research carefully. Only when we have a comprehensive picture of your individual situation, we discuss and plan the further treatment steps with you.
Whether you become pregnant after insemination depends on several factors:
In addition, only one treatment cycle is often not enough to achieve a pregnancy. For most women, several attempts are necessary. Per treatment cycle and depending on the age, the pregnancy rate is between 12 and 20%. After one year, 80% of couples are looking forward to a pregnancy. For every fifth couple, the sperm transfer unfortunately does not succeed. From experience we know that after three or four unsuccessful inseminations, it is usually better to think about IVF treatment.
Semen transmissions are just as possible for heterosexual couples as they are for lesbians. The treatment is a gentle way of fulfilling your desire for children.
We distinguish in:
In the Wunschkind Klinik we carry out the so-called Intrauterine Insemination (IUI): We transfer the sperm directly into the uterus of the woman. The success of an insemination depends, in large part, on the sperm being transmitted at the optimal time in the woman's cycle. This is the case when the follicle is between 17 and 22 millimeters in size.
Depending on the procedure we distinguish in:
"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. "
The right time for insemination is crucial for the chances of success. Therefore, couples who want to undergo insemination should be flexible in their time. An essential prerequisite for any insemination is that the Fallopian tubes are open. We clarify this through our diagnosis.
For insemination we use either fresh or previously frozen (cryopreserved) sperm from the partner, or donor sperm from a sperm bank. The partner obtains the fresh sperm directly at our clinic, in a discreet room especially designed for this purpose. In some cases it is necessary to take the sperm directly from the man's testicle. In case of this procedure, we work together with specialists.
Before insemination, we prepare the sperm in our laboratory. Only the more mobile sperm are used. The transfer into the uterus takes place with a catheter, through the vagina. Then nature takes its course. Together with you we are looking forward to the result. After about three weeks, with a pregnancy test we will find out if the procedure was successful and therefore you are pregnant. Another three weeks later you can already detect the heartbeat of the child on ultrasound.
In principle, insemination treatment is low-risk.
However, situations may arise that may require further treatment or accompaniment:
An unfulfilled desire to have a baby is already a big challenge for most couples. Hormone therapy can lead to depressive moods that increase the emotional burden.
Couples who opt for an insemination should think about the possibility of multiple pregnancy in advance. In some cases, hormonal stimulation and the introduction of fertilizable sperm cells can fertilize more than one oocyte. We discuss this topic in detail with you in advance.We attach great importance to providing you with comprehensive information about opportunities and risks before each treatment. It is important to us to treat you optimally, not only physically. We accompany you holistically, as a person and as a couple, through your fertility treatment. This means that we provide medical, psychological and emotional support. And most of all, it means that we take every opportunity to fulfill your wish for a baby.

Then it is time to wait and see if a fertilization has taken place.
After about three weeks, we determine by pregnancy test, if it worked and you are pregnant. Another three weeks later you can already detect the heartbeat of the child on ultrasound.
For most women, several attempts are necessary until pregnancy occurs. Per treatment cycle and depending on the age, the pregnancy rate is between 12 and 15%. From experience we know that after three or four unsuccessful inseminations, it is usually better to think about artificial insemination.
For lesbian couples, the chances of success in insemination are slightly higher, as sufferers suffer significantly less from endometriosis, PCOS and closed fallopian tubes
That depends on your personal situation. In most cases, several attempts are necessary until pregnancy occurs.
Fertilization naturally occurs after the spermatozoa have been introduced into the uterus.
The insemination, the seed transfer, is a long-standing established fertility treatment.
At the most fertile point in the woman's menstrual cycle, the male's sperm are introduced directly into the uterine cavity. This allows more spermatozoa to reach the egg faster than naturally.
It is important that the man is flexible in time.
The insemination is always at the best time in the monthly cycle of the woman. If possible, we use fresh sperm for insemination. This wins the partner directly with us in the Wunschkind clinic.
Seed transfers are in principle low in risk. Nevertheless, situations may arise that require further treatment or accompaniment:
In addition, couples who opt for an insemination, should deal in advance with the idea of multiple pregnancy. In some cases, hormonal stimulation and the introduction of fertile sperm cells fertilize several oocytes.
