Infertility treatment

Here is a general description of infertility treatment which may vary in individual cases.

Infertility disorders in males

The treatment of low sperm quality is often difficult. Andrological examination often does not reveal the cause of male infertility and, if so, it may not always be effective. However, we still recommend this examination at least to exclude serious pathology of the male genitalia where low sperm quality may be the first symptom. In addition to drugs, the vitamins and trace elements that act as antioxidants or are directly involved in metabolic processes in sperm may particularly help in case of impaired fertility. The adjustment of lifestyle, i.e. the elimination of stress, excessive smoking or alcohol consumption certainly has a positive effect. Consistent treatment of infections is also important.

For successful sperm development, the male genitalia - testicles - need cooler than body temperature. Everything that heats the testicles, such as tight clothing, can threaten sperm production. For men it is important to wear loose clothing, not to spend a lot of time sitting in the car, not to visit saunas very often, etc. Sometimes, the varicocele, i.e. the enlargement of venous plexus, which can also cause excessive heating of the germinal epithelium of the testicles, is found in the genital area. Varicocele can be surgically removed.

The best results in male infertility treatment, however, are unambiguously reached using the methods of assisted reproduction (IVF-ICSI). Even a minimum amount of sperms is sufficient when using the ICSI method where the sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg. This method opens up the possibility of having own child even to the severely infertile male. If there is no sperm in the ejaculate (azoospermia), we can perform surgical sperm retrieval from the epididymis (MESA) or directly from the testis (TESE). If there is sperm found in the sample, it can be used to fertilize eggs. If this fails, the option can be - provided that the treated couple agrees – to use donor sperm.

Infertility disorders in females

In women, we use the hormonal treatment either in the form of tablets or injections to induce ovulation as well as to eliminate various hormonal disorders, including thyroid disorders. The treatment of a vaginal infection may also have a positive impact. We monitor the quality of the endometrium and in case of atypical findings, such as a uterine polyp etc., it is necessary to plan its removal. If there is a myoma in the uterus, the decision whether to leave it or remove it depends on its size and location. In case of endometriosis we assess whether there is abdominal pain and the size and number of centres and we choose either conservative or surgical procedure accordingly. Blockage of both fallopian tubes must be solved via assisted reproduction. We choose this also in cases where less intensive treatment is possible, but not successful. Immunological cause of infertility is treated using small doses of corticosteroids and other drugs, but the best solution for this type of infertility is, again, assisted reproduction when we clean the egg and sperm from potentially harmful antibodies in the laboratory, and thus ensure fertilization and embryo development in immunologically clean environment. Antibodies mainly affect the mutual bonding of the sperm and egg. This problem is elegantly solved by ICSI method when the sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg. Assisted reproduction has also brought the possibility of using eggs from a donor. Donor eggs or sperm are used even in cases of some genetic disorders with the risk of their transmission onto the children. Rehabilitation also plays an important role in infertility treatment. The woman’s age is also taken into account in examination and treatment of infertility.

Notice for patients: Coronavirus (COVID-19/ SARS-CoV-2)


Dear patients and citizens seeking advice and assistance! As an assisted reproduction centre, even we are striving to protect our patients against potential coronavirus infection as best possible. At present, there is a prevalence of uncertainty, because a vast quantity of contradictory information is available in the media and on social networks. The “infodemic” - meaning the surplus of rumors, false reports and fake news - is minimally as problematic as the epidemic itself! For this reason, we strive to provide you with objective and up-to-date information on the topic of assisted reproduction, pregnancy and coronavirus disease, and to observe the recommendations of authorities and healthcare facilities. We ask you not to visit our assisted reproduction centre if you are suffering from symptoms suggesting coronavirus infection, or if you have spent time in any of the current high-risk areas in recent weeks, or have come into contact with potentially infected individuals. Currently, the high-risk areas are: Italy Iran In China: Province Hubei (inkl. City Wuhan) In South Korea: Province Gyeongsangbuk-do (Nord-Gyeongsang) Source: Robert-Koch-Institut (RKI): Status: 10th March 2020 At present, the health risk for citizens e.g .in Germany is classified as moderate. (Source: RKI: Status: 2 March 2020, 12:30 p.m.). Contagion from person to person is the gravest means of infection. In general, the same preventive, protective and hygienic measures as those applicable during ordinary flu season should be observed. This includes proper hand hygiene, not shaking hands when greeting and keeping a distance from individuals who are ill - including people with cold or flu symptoms.( COVID-19 infection is generally mild, sometimes entirely asymptomatic. The level of danger of the pathogen cannot yet be reliably assessed - but it seems to be substantially lower than in the case of MERS or SARS, and is likely to be comparable to the seasonal flu (source: AGES, status: 3 March 2020, In some cases, the course of the illness can be severe. The illness tends to be fatal primarily among the elderly and/or individuals with a severe chronic health anamnesis. At present, there is no reason to believe that COVID-19/ SARS-CoV-2 infection would have a more severe progression among pregnant women than women who are not pregnant. Likewise, no cases of transmission of the virus to an unborn child have been described or confirmed yet (status: 2 March 2020). In addition to the usual preventive measures, we recommend that patients who wish to get pregnant be vaccinated against the flu, not least to avoid concurrent infection with COVID-19/ SARS-CoV-2 and the flu. This applies both to unvaccinated pregnant women and unvaccinated women who wish to get pregnant. Vaccination against the flu virus poses no threat to pregnant women, and does not require the postponement of pregnancy therapy, because it is a “dead vaccine”. Therefore, pregnancy is not a contraindication to flu vaccination. Although the 2019/2020 flu season has most likely already peaked, you should get a flu vaccination even now. In fact, vaccination against the flu is explicitly recommended for pregnant women. The Standing Committee on Vaccination in Germany (STIKO) recommends flu vaccination for all pregnant women from the 2nd trimester; if there is a higher health risk due to other medical problems (e.g. asthma or diabetes), from the 1st trimester of pregnancy.
