Treatment Options

Depending on the individual diagnosis the following treatment methods may be recommended:

Hormone therapy of women

A variety of hormonal imbalances may result in reduced fertility. Often this problem can be solved with the appropriate drug treatment or support of the cycle by hormone administration.

Intrauterine Insemination – IUI

In some cases of reduced fertility, it is sufficient to prepare the seed and introduce it to the egg. This is done by means of artificial insemination. A sample of prepared sperm is painlessly placed inside the uterus. This procedure may be offered either with or without hormone treatment.

Surgical treatment options

If fibroids or uterine malformations are the cause of infertility, surgical removal or correction is often the method of choice to resolve fertility limitation. Also, in the polycystic ovary syndrome or endometriosis, or in the case of a varicocele in men, fertility can often be favorably influenced by surgery.

In vitro fertilization – IVF

If more serious impairments prevent the fertilization of the ovum by the sperm, the method of choice is artificial fertilization outside of the body. Fertilization takes place in a petri dish, in which prepared semen is added to the prepared eggs.
