The way to your own child

Your fertility treatment at the MVZ 

We look after you holistically and very personally. Our doctors take a lot of time for your consultation. The choice of therapy is decided not only by medical facts, but also by our more than 30 years of experience in reproductive medicine and the empathy with our patients that has grown out of this: Since every person is different, there can be no standard treatment. All procedures and processes are subject to detailed quality management. Because the higher the quality of our work, the greater the prospect of getting what we all want: Your successful fertility treatment.

What is the procedure of assisted reproduction?

It is important to us that you know how we work and that you feel well looked after and informed at all times. That is why we have explained the individual treatment steps in detail and in a way that is easy to understand.


1.Make an appointment online or by phone - no waiting lists.

Before we can speak with you about your medical concerns, you will need an appointment. So please contact us to arrange an appointment. If you have not yet been a patient at the MVZ PAN Institute, we will first make an appointment for a telephone consultation. We will then call you to go through your medical history together and discuss how to proceed.

2.The first appointment - consultation and check-up

Your first appointment with us in the house helps us get to know you and make the medical classification of your case. We check your documents and discuss with you the basic requirements for treatment as well as any existing biological obstacles to treatment (takes approx. 10 minutes). During the examination, blood samples are taken and, if necessary, the semen quality of the male patient is analysed. 

3.The second appointment - therapy planning

As soon as the results of the blood analysis and, if necessary, the semen analysis are available and there are no obstacles to treatment, your doctor will see you for a detailed consultation. The doctor will explain the medical options to you, ideally already identify the best treatment option for you and clarify any outstanding questions (takes approx. 30 minutes).

4.Stimulation therapy (takes 10 to 14 days)

Hormone treatment or hormonal stimulation is often required to induce or enhance oocyte maturation. This is done with tablets or with injections, which the woman can easily inject herself into the subcutaneous fatty tissue - depending on the instructions. This increases the chances of obtaining several oocytes, fertilising them and transferring one to three embryos.

5.The third appointment - insemination or oocyte collection

In insemination, fertilisation takes place in the woman's body. For this purpose, specially prepared "washed" sperm (so-called homologous insemination) are transferred into the uterine cavity at the time of ovulation using a syringe and a thin catheter. Insemination is preferred when male fertility is subject to mild impediment.

The retrieval of oocytes for fertilisation in a test tube (in-vitro fertilisation/IVF) is a straightforward, outpatient procedure. The puncture of the follicle for oocyte collection is performed from the vagina using ultrasound. A general anaesthetic is not absolutely necessary, but makes the procedure much more comfortable. In addition, sufficient oocytes can then be obtained even under difficult puncture conditions. If there are no complications, you can go home the same day.

The oocyte and sperm are then brought together in the test tube so that independent fertilisation can take place under optimal conditions. Two to three impregnated oocytes are selected and cultured in the incubator for another one to two days. Excess impregnated oocytes can be frozen and used at a later date. During incubation in the warming cabinet, the fertilised oocytes divide.

6.Embryo transfer in IVF/ICSI

If the fertilised oocytes divide as desired, we place the embryos in the uterine cavity about two to five days after follicular puncture. This embryo transfer is performed using a thin tube and is completely painless. In the following phase, the embryo is supposed to implant firmly in the uterine lining.

7.Pregnancy test

14 days after the follicular puncture, it is possible to check whether pregnancy has occurred. This is done by a simple blood analysis. If the result is negative, another test may be required.
