Clarification of causes

Treatment concept

The treatment of childlessness requires its individual causes to be clarified as comprehensively as possible. In the context of evidence-based medicine, we determine the meaningful and verifiably effective therapy indications, depending on the specific diagnosis.

An artificial form of fertilisation outside the body is only indicated if the available results mean that a natural conception is not or is no longer possible.

Particular consideration is also given to the biological age of the female patient. Declining female fertility, starting from the age of 37, is a sensible reason for shortening the first phase of treatment, which aims at a natural conception. The artificial forms of fertilisation can compensate for the problem of declining fertility to a certain extent.

The fertility treatment starts with the examination of the possible causes of sterility. The use of appropriate methods of treatment is derived from the result.
