How to find us!

Causes of infertility

Involuntary childlessness can be the result of any number of reasons, which our fertility clinic will help you understand and overcome. Our treatments represent the most advanced in medical knowledge. We have helped childless couples since 1990. Building a personal relationship with our clients that is based on trust has always been our hallmark.

First, we will determine the possible causes of infertility. After an extensive examination, we are then able to reach a diagnosis, which will give the basis for subsequent treatments.

The causes of infertility can be various and involve one or both partners. On the one hand, infertility indicates the inability to sustain a pregnancy. On the other, infertility can be equated with sterility, which means that a woman cannot conceive or a man cannot sire a pregnancy.

After analysing possible causes, we will use modern treatment methods to help fulfil your wish to have children. These range from hormone treatment to artificial insemination.

We use the latest technology and methods. All treatment is carried out in our surgeries, which accounts for our high success rate.

Female infertility

Oocyte maturation failure

This is a hormonal malfunction inside the ovaries. The female menstrual cycle is controlled by a large number of hormones. A hormonal imbalance can negatively affect oocyte maturation, as well as the ovulation process and the formation of the corpus luteum. In case of an insufficiency of progesterone, getting pregnant can be difficult. 

Fallopian tube infertility

The fallopian tubes are used by sperm to reach the egg and for fertilised eggs to reach the uterine cavity. When they are blocked, the eggs or sperm may not be able to pass through.


Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial-like cells outside the uterine cavity. Such growths can appear inside the peritoneum, the ovaries or the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility. 

Alterations of the uterus and the cervix 

Problems of infertility can be caused by scarred tissue after surgery or inflammations. Uterine fibroids or myomas (benigne muscle tumors) can lead to infertility or cause miscarriages.

Polycystic Ovaries (PCOs)

This common metabolic disorder is often accompanied by high levels of male hormones and the presence of numerous ovaric cysts can cause infertility proble

Male infertility

Low sperm count or low sperm quality

It needs a few million sperm cells for the fertilization process. The most common male fertility disorder is a lack in the production of normal and motile sperm cells, so that no natural fertilization can happen. 

Disorders of the sperm transportation process

In this case enough sperm cells are produced but they can't reach the woman's body because of an occlusion of the ductus deferens. This occlusions are often obeserved after post-surgical inflammations or injuries.

Other causes of male infertility can be:

hormonal Imbalances


hereditary factors



serious illnesses

massive alcolohol or nicotine consumption
