What is infertility?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines infertility as the failure to achieve pregnancy after more than two years of unprotected sexual intercourse.

It is important to note that for couples with no infertility problems, the chance of achieving pregnancy during unprotected sexual intercourse is 25% per cycle.

For some years now, modern medicine has offered a number of therapy options that can help your chances of conceiving.

We have brought them together under the term Medically Assisted Reproduction (MAR) – learn more about the Federal Act of 18 December 1998 on Medically Assisted Reproduction (RMA).

What happens at the first consultation?

Before treatment can begin, it is essential to get a more precise idea of what might be causing the infertility and to discuss the history of your relationship with this in mind. 

The various enquiries allow us to explore the fertility potential of both partners. For the woman, this will focus on making sure the uterus, the Fallopian tubes and the ovaries are working properly. For the man, the focus will be on evaluating the fertility potential of the sperm.
