Infertility is a reproductive system`s disorder that can be triggered by a series of reasons and medical conditions and touches about one in six women and men of reproductive age. Leading reproductive health organizations advise consulting with an infertility expert if you fit into one of the groups below:

Women under 35 years of age who have not been successful in getting pregnant after 12 months of unprotected sexual activities.

Women who are 35 years of age and older who have not been successful in getting pregnant after 6 months of deliberate conceiving efforts or more.

Women who have experienced at least two miscarriages.

Women who have been diagnosed with the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis or have a male partner with a low sperm count, which is an impairing factor in a woman`s s ability to conceive.

Being a parent is not a walk in the park, to begin with. But when it comes to explaining to your child how they arrived into this world, the task appears nothing short of overwhelming and is being dreaded by many parents.

On the other hand, you cannot postpone this fundamental conversation indefinitely, it will take place in one way or the other and you better be prepared for it.

In this blog post, we have outlined various reasons why parents should not avoid that difficult conversation and how to frame the message to a child about his or her surrogate birth in the most thoughtful and delicate way possible.

No matter what is your individual philosophy on revealing a child’s birth story, the practice shows it pays off to be straightforward and honest with your child from early on.

Advanced techniques for infertility treatment are transforming the lives of families worldwide.

They make parenthood a reality for those who once didn’t have hope. The sperm washing process is one of these unique techniques.

It helps couples with fertility problems to conceive genetically related healthy children. It’s also an effective solution for the serodiscordant couples where the man is HIV-positive and the woman is HIV-negative.

Thanks to sperm washing, HIV-positive men get an opportunity to father their biologic babies. Sperm washing enables to avoid the risk of infecting the mother as well as the future child.

Our top priority is to support our patients in having the maximum chance of pregnancy success, with the smallest risks.

Women who are 35 and older are increasingly turning to a procedure of single embryo transfer accompanied by comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) and enjoying great outcomes.

Fortunately, single embryo transfer significantly reduces the risks linked to multiples and is an excellent choice for many patients.

If you would like to know more about this option – don`t hesitate to contact us. Our fertility experts will gladly help and answer all your questions.

You finally got pregnant, after a few trials, and gave birth to your baby. You managed to accept the fact that you wouldn’t be genetically connected with your child.

After all, you carried that baby for nine months – and the child was yours. The thought that the baby was still half your partner’s, genetically, was somehow comforting.

Yet at this moment, you’re watching your newborn, and the baby doesn’t seem to look like your partner. The baby doesn’t look like your donor either.

How come? What should you think of that? Is there any genetic connection at all? Is there any hope for your child to look like your partner down the road?

The moment has come; you were finally able to become pregnant through an IVF procedure with the help of an egg donor.

You can already imagine holding a new-born baby in your arms. However, some unpleasant thoughts might begin to creep into your mind. Is it really my baby? Wouldn’t having a donor egg baby be just like raising an adopted child?

You and your partner are the only reason why this baby will be born. The baby might not share your genes, but this baby boy or girl owes his or her life to you.

You will always remember this fact and there is nothing in the world that feels as good as the knowledge that you were the sole reason for creating a new life.

Officially referred to as oocyte cryopreservation, egg freezing is a procedure during which a female’s eggs are extracted from the ovaries and frozen so that they can be used in the future whenever needed.

While previously this was viewed as an experiment, these days it is a reliable method of overcoming certain infertility issues.

What is more, the procedure of egg freezing hasn’t been labeled as investigational by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine since 2012.

The development of various techniques and the improvement of the egg freezing procedure have offered women a chance to have biological children when they want to.
