(By determining the concentration of gonadotropic hormones, we identify the ovarian reserve of your ovaries. The examination is carried out on day 2 or 3 of menstruation. An even more precise indicator of ovarian reserve is the presence of AMH, or anti-mullerian hormone, which can be measured at anytime during the menstruation cycle.)

(Sonography is used to detect the presence of a maturing follicle on the ovary and the thickness of mucous membrane – the epithelium on the uterus. The examination is carried out approximately on day 12 to 13 after the beginning of menstruation. At a later stage of the cycle – on day 21 after the beginning of menstruation – we again observe the follicle, from which the egg has been released in the meantime during ovulation.)
Sonographic examination of fallopian tubes patency (HyFoSy)

Sonographic examination of fallopian tubes patency (HyCoSy) is carried out as an outpatient procedure, without anaesthesia. A thin catheter is inserted into the cervix, and a contrast agent is applied through it. The agent is visible via sonographic imaging. The physician is then able to see whether the contrast agent passes through the fallopian tubes and gets to the ovaries. This examination is not optimal for every patient, as it cannot confirm or rule out endometriosis, which can only be done via a laparoscopic examination.

Diagnosing men

The post-coital test is an examination of mucus samples collected from the cervix two hours following unprotected sexual intercourse. The post-coital test is conducted during ovulation, when the mucus has the optimal characteristics for sperm penetration. The mucus is examined under the microscope right after the sample is collected. Evaluated criteria include sperm motility and the quality of motion, which points out to the ability of sperm cells to penetrate cervical mucus and to survive in this environment.

How we can help you

Intrauterine insemination - IUI
Intrauterine insemination is an insemination process which consists of inserting sperm cells directly into the uterus just before ovulation. Quality sperm cells will get into immediate proximity of the egg, thus increasing the chances of fertilisation. IUI can thus take place as part of the natural menstruation cycle, or you may (based on a doctor's recommendation) undergo hormonal treatment, during which we will monitor your fertility by way of sonography examinations and blood tests.

IVF
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a laboratory technique in which the egg is fertilised in an extracorporeal environment. IVF represents one of the most efficient methods of treating infertility.
Standard IVF (basic treatment)
Under the term 'in vitro fertilisation' we understand all methods of treatment, during which eggs are fertilised outside the female body. A cycle of in vitro fertilisation takes place in several stages – hormonal stimulation of ovaries, retrieval of eggs, insemination of eggs by sperm, egg culture and insertion of the embryo into the uterus

The method of sperm selection for ICSI, which is based on maximum microscopic enlargement of the sperm. it represents a modification of the ICSI method, during which the embryologist can evaluate even minimal defects in sperm morphology and select the most optimal sperm for egg fertilisation. The IMSI method cannot be used if there is a very low sperm count in ejaculate.
Pre-selected intracytoplasmic sperm injection (PICSI) (ICSI is always necessary)
No
120€
120€
Sperm selection method in ICSI which is based on selection of a mature sperm. Before the actual ICSI, sperm cells are layered over a plate, which is similar in composition to the egg cell coating. Only sperm cells that have adequate genetic characteristics and would stand the best chance of actually fertilising the egg should be bound firmly to this plate.

Sperm selection techniques
MACS – magnetic-activated cell sorting
No
250€
250€
A sperm selection method that uses the influence of a magnetic field. It results in separation of sperm cells with a good genotype (undamaged DNA), which stand the best chance of fertilising the egg. Apart from other cell-sorting techniques (IMSI and PICSI), sperm separated in this manner can be used in all methods of assisted reproduction – insemination, IVF, ICSI or they can even be frozen for further use in the future.

The term 'in vitro fertilisation' (IVF) represents all treatment methods in which the egg is fertilised outside the female body. An IVF cycle takes place across several stages – hormonal stimulation of ovaries, retrieval of eggs, egg fertilisation by sperm, egg culture and insertion of the embryo into the uterus.
Embryo culture methods
Prolonged embryo culture (up to day 5 of embryo development)
No
100€
100€
Embryo culture under laboratory conditions up to the stage of the expanded blastocyst, which develops on the 5th day after fertilisation. IVF results following the blastocyst transfer are better when compared to embryo transfer at earlier stages of development, as the development of a major part of embryos stops right after the 3rd day following fertilisation. If embryo development reaches day 5, there is a greater chance of successful implantation in the uterus.
Embryo culture in EmbryoScope TM
No
250€
250€
A special culturing device for embryos, which maintains stable conditions in the incubator and provides output in the form of a video recording of embryonic cell division (the device takes photos of the embryo every 20 minutes). The embryologist can thus precisely state the regularity of embryonic cell division. The result of this culturing is then the possibility of optimal selection of the embryo to be transferred into the uterus (i.e. the embryo with the most regular cell division) without disrupting the conditions for cell division.
Embryo culture, G210 - a multi-chamber incubator
No
50€
50€
When culturing embryos are cultured in a multichamber microscope, each patient has a tiny incubator chamber dedicated only to her embryos. Compared to classic culturing, it is therefore not necessary to disrupt the optimum atmosphere, which is essential for correct embryonic cell division, every time the embryologist needs to control the embryos of another patient. The stable atmosphere in the incubator improves early embryonic development, thus increasing the chance for successful implantation in uterus and further development.
Embryogen
No
100€
100€
A special culturing medium designed for patients who have suffered repeated miscarriages in the past (pregnancy losses). It contains specific growth factors, which increase the percentage of embryos with optimum cell division. Besides patients with repeated pregnancy loss, it is also recommended for patients who have suffered from repeated failure of embryo implantation following the transfer, as well as patients with idiopathic infertility.
Additional methods in embryo transfer
Laser-assisted hatching (AH)
No
100€
100€
Disruption of the embryo shell with a laser beam. Up to day 6 following fertilisation, the embryo is protected by a special shell – the zona pellucida. It needs to leave this coat to be able to implant itself in the uterus. An embryo shell which is too firm can be the reason why the embryo cannot leave and is therefore unable to implant itself in the uterus. Cutting the zona pellucida with a laser beam is safe and poses no risk to further embryonic development.
Embryo glue
No
80€
80€
Embryo glue is a lay term for a specific medium (solution) in which the embryo is transferred into the uterus. The chemical composition of this medium is very similar to the liquid that is normally found in the uterus and has a greater density compared to the standard media used for embryo transfer. This should provide not only optimal conditions for further development and embryonic cell division but should also minimise the risk of embryo shift within the genital tract of the woman following the embryo transfer.
Cryopreservation of reproductive cells and embryos
Cryopreservation of embryos and storage for one year
If several embryos develop during the process of in vitro fertilisation, we transfer one or a maximum of two embryos with the most positive development. The remaining embryos are recommended to be frozen and kept for the couple for the future. The survival rate of embryos after thawing is high, and a couple, in the case of no pregnancy after transferring a fresh embryo, therefore stands a high chance of undergoing cryoembryotransfer (CET), which is preceded only by preparation of the mucous membrane for implant of the inserted embryo. The woman does not need to undergo the whole process of stimulation followed by egg retrieval again. In the case of good-quality embryos after thawing, the chances of pregnancy after cryoembryotransfer are similar to those during the process of fresh embryo transfer.

Cryopreservation of oocytes (retrieval + freezing for one year)
This is a method of preservation of oocytes (eggs) which is carried out in women who are awaiting oncological treatment or in women who do not plan to get pregnant at the moment and wish to keep their eggs frozen for the future (so called social freezing). Cryopreservation is preceded by hormonal stimulation of eggs, which takes approximately 12 days. The retrieval of fresh eggs is conducted under total anaesthesia, and the eggs are immediately frozen and kept in liquid nitrogen. Cryopreservation is carried out by way of vitrification – ultrafast freezing of eggs in special straws.

Cryopreservation of sperm (+ storage per year)
Freezing of sperm is used in patients before initiating oncological treatment as well as in the sperm donor program. Sperm survival rate after thawing is highly individual, but in general, the process of freezing and thawing is survived by approximately 50% of sperm cells. Depending on the parameters of semen analysis, sperm can be used after thawing for intrauterine insemination, when the insemination dose should contain at least 15 million sperm cells. In the case of poorer semen analysis parameters, eggs are fertilised using micromanipulation techniques within the IVF program.
