IVF and infertility

What is infertility and in vitro fertilization?
An infertile couple is defined as a woman and a man who do not achieve pregnancy after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse. Sterility is a condition in which a woman is unable to conceive. We distinguish between primary and secondary sterility and infertility.

The infertility of a woman, who has no history of pregnancy, is known as primary infertility. We speak about secondary sterility if a woman was pregnant in the past and the pregnancy was terminated by childbirth, miscarriage or as an ectopic pregnancy. An infertility evaluation is usually recommended after one year of regular unprotected intercourse in women under 32 and after six months of unprotected intercourse in women aged 33 and older. As the problem of infertility is very complex, we recommend visiting our centre and consulting our specialists dealing with infertility treatment.
 
In the Czech Republic, the treatment of infertility is associated with assisted reproduction at a level comparable to Western Europe. All centers of assisted reproduction in the Czech Republic have, or should have, an internationally recognized quality certification known as ISO 9001.  ISO guarantees the quality and safety processes in IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatment. Sanatorium Helios was awarded the ISO 9001 certificate 17th June 2004 and successfully defended the subsequent ISO standards re-certification.
 
As the only center for assisted reproduction in Europe, Sanatorium Helios has had an exclusive license agreement for IVF technology with the Australian Genea - World leading fertility, since 2002.

Why Sanatorium Helios

 
1

Infertility diagnosis

In most cases, the probable cause of infertility is discovered. Only about one fifth of them remain unexplained. However, even for these couples, the treatment or assisted reproduction can be successful.

2

Causes of infertility

The problem is often related to the woman. The truth is that 2/3 cases are caused by the male factor and less than a third by the female factor. In some cases, both partners participate in the couple's infertility, or it remains unresolved.

3

Genea (Sydney IVF)

In the Czech Republic, the treatment of infertility is associated with assisted reproduction at a level comparable to Western Europe. All centers of assisted reproduction in the Czech Republic have, or should have, an internationally recognized quality certification known as ISO 9001.

4

Assisted reproduction

If pregnancies do not take place even after eliminating causes, or in the cases of disorders, which cannot be solved in another way, your physician may suggest to you one of the assisted reproduction methods.

5

The Cryoembryo Transfer (KET)

Cryopreservation (freezing) is a safe method of keeping embryos in cryo containers with liquid nitrogen at −196 °C. Two basic methods of cryopreservation are generally used: slow cryopreservation and vitrification.
