What is infertility?

Infertility is defined as the inability to become pregnant within 1 year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. One in six couples is experiencing this problem. If a woman is 35 years or older, we start targeted screening after six (6) months of unsuccessful conception because of the decreasing chances of conception due to age.


Infertility treatment

The World Health Organisation (WHO) classifies infertility as a curable disease. Most biological causes of infertility can be remedied with professional medical help. For infertile couples, treatment opens a wide range of options on the path to childbearing.

Methods of treating infertility

There are a variety of methods in the treatment of infertility. The choice of treatment method for infertility depends on the identified causes of infertility.

We start with simpler treatments and then move on to more invasive ones.

We follow an individualised approach with a healthy lifestyle, avoidance of harmful factors and, if necessary, continuation of hormonal or surgical treatment.

Causes of Infertility

Causes of infertility

The causes of infertility vary, but sometimes it is a combination of factors.

In 30% of couples, the cause of infertility is on the female side, in 30% on the male side, and in 30% of couples the causes overlap.

Although treatment is at a high scientific level, it is still not possible to determine the specific cause of infertility in about 10% of infertile couples.
