Fertility Treatments

Failure to conceive can be related to factors in both the woman and the man. It’s always your wishes and your previous history that decide which treatment is the best for you. The best way for us to help you choose is an informal meeting. Here we’ll go through your history of examination and treatment, we’ll explain our investigation programme, and together we’ll find the solution that works best for you.

Infertility causes

Infertility can be caused by a number of factors:

  • Blocked or missing fallopian tubes 
  • Adhesions (endometriosis) 
  • Reduced sperm count or no viable sperm 
  • The man has had a vasectomy 

Sometimes infertility is inexplicable; all tests and examinations seem to show that 'there’s nothing wrong' with neither the man nor the woman. 

Treatment options

Depending on the cause of infertility there are various forms of treatment we can offer you:

3-PACK IVF TREATMENT / ICSI TREATMENT

At Aagaard Fertility Clinic, contracts with 3 IVF / ICSI treatments always include 3 completed treatments with egg laying - or a total of 5 interrupted treatments.

This means that if there are no blastocysts after 5 days, and the cycle is therefore canceled, the treatment is considered not  completed, and as an interrupted treatment.

ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION IVF Artificial insemination, also called test tube treatment or egg transplantation
ICSI Like IVF, except fertilisation of the egg happens by means of  micro-insemination; i.e., a single sperm cell is injected into the egg
EGG DIAGNOSIS (PGD) Implies that the embryo (fertilized egg) is diagnosed for known genetic diseases that the man or the woman is a carrier of, such as HD (Huntington’s disease) or CF (cystic fibrosis).
EGG SCREENING (PGS) Implies that the embryo (fertilized egg) is screened to make sure that the 23 pairs of chromosomes (22 autosomes plus the sex chromosomes X and Y) are present; in other words that the embryo has the normal number of chromosomes.
ASSISTED HATCHING In the laboratory a tiny hole is made in the shell of the embryo before it is transferred to the womb
TESA Sperm cells are extracted from the testicle if the man has had a vasectomy or is unable to ejaculate
EGG FREEZING High-quality spare embryos are frozen after IVF treatment
SPERM FREEZING Freezing of sperm can be a good idea if:
- the man is about to receive medical treatment that may potentially harm his sperm cells
- the man finds it difficult to supply fresh sperm on the day of egg extraction
- the man can’t be present on the day of IUI treatment or egg extraction
- the man is considering a vasectomy
INSEMINATION IUI Insemination with partner (IUI-H) Insemination with donor sperm (IUI-D)
