If you have been trying to have children for quite some time but have not yet been able to, paying a visit to our fertility clinic may help you. At the Wiesbaden Fertility Clinic, we specialise in reproductive medicine and base our treatment both on the long-standing experience of our doctors and our team as well as pioneering medical advances made in recent years. Our goal is to improve your chances of successfully getting pregnant. In an initial discussion, you’ll first get to know your attending physician and talk about your personal situation so that we can precisely tailor our examinations and treatments to your needs. We take this approach so that we can keep the physical and psychological stress for you and your partner to a minimum. Please do not hesitate to contact us confidentially about artificial insemination in Wiesbaden.
In vitro fertilisation is performed when the fallopian tubes are damaged, for example, or if natural fertilisation cannot take place due to endometriosis. IVF is also an option for conceiving if a man has impaired fertility. In vitro fertilisation is performed outside of the uterus. We first stimulate follicle growth using fertility hormones. Next, ovulation is induced and the eggs are removed with a fine needle. The cells obtained are brought together with the sperm cells in a culture medium and stored in an incubator at 37 °C for about 24 hours. During this time, the eggs should be fertilised. If fertilisation is successful, we transfer a maximum of three embryos into the uterus using a catheter. Read more about IVF in Wiesbaden.
Insemination is performed inside the woman’s body. At the time of ovulation, a thin catheter is used to insert previously prepared sperm into the uterus. This is usually donated by the partner (homologous insemination). The journey to the egg is shorter, thus increasing the chances of fertilisation. This treatment is usually performed when the quality of the sperm cells is limited. This can affect both the motility and the number of sperm. Insemination also offers the possibility of using donor sperm (heterologous insemination). In these cases, we work closely with our cooperation partner, the Düsseldorf sperm bank. To increase the chances of successful fertilisation, the egg maturation process in the woman is stimulated at the same time. Our doctors will be happy to have a personal discussion with you to talk about the possibility of insemination with donor sperm. Read more about artificial insemination in Wiesbaden.
If a man does not have many sperm capable of fertilisation or if the motility of the sperm cells is considerably limited, we advise you to try ICSI, a microinjection. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) goes one step further than IVF. In this treatment too, the ovaries are first stimulated and the eggs then removed with a fine needle. Under a microscope, our doctors draw a single viable sperm into a thin pipette and then insert it directly into the egg. The injection therefore simulates the sperm’s natural penetration of the egg. The actual fertilisation with the fusion of the nuclei then has to occur naturally. If the fertilisation is successful, we then transfer the embryos into the female uterus.
