All in­for­ma­tion about fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Berlin

Did you know that the se­cond test-tube baby in Ger­many, i.e. a baby created by as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion, was born in the GDR? They were twins and they were born on Oc­tober 5, 1984 in the women’s clinic of the Cha­rité. In­ci­dent­ally, the first test-tube baby had first seen the light of day in Er­langen.

Since 1984, a lot has hap­pened not only in Berlin, but also in re­pro­duc­tive me­di­cine. If you would like to re­ceive de­tails on mo­dern re­pro­duc­tion me­thods, our pa­tient ad­vi­sors will be happy to ad­vise you on your fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment or on the choice of the best fer­ti­lity clinic for your in­di­vi­dual needs. If you are in­te­rested in a free and non-bin­ding con­sul­ta­tion with one of our per­sonal pa­tient ad­vi­sors, you can book an ap­point­ment here.

The IVF Re­gister Ger­many alone lists 12 fer­ti­lity cli­nics and fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Berlin. This makes Berlin the city with the most fer­ti­lity cen­ters. Whe­ther there is the best fer­ti­lity clinic in Ger­many among these 12 cen­ters is dif­fi­cult to say, be­cause the topic of fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment is one of the most in­di­vi­dual to­pics of all.

In order to find out which is the best fer­ti­lity center in Ger­many for you per­so­nally, our hel­pful pa­tient ad­vi­sors at Fer­tilly will be happy to ad­vise you free of charge. They listen to you and are there for you. From to­pics such as the costs of fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment or the ques­tion of when to go to a fer­ti­lity center, to niche to­pics such as fin­ding a fer­ti­lity clinic for same-sex cou­ples in Ger­many, they com­bine ex­pert know­ledge with per­sonal em­pathy. Here you can ea­sily book a free te­le­phone con­sul­ta­tion with them. We work with selected and con­ti­nuously qua­lity-che­cked fer­ti­lity cen­ters and re­com­mend the best center for you in­di­vi­du­ally.

Child­bea­ring sup­port in Berlin

All In­for­ma­tion about Child­bea­ring sup­port in Berlin

Berlin is an in­te­res­ting pioneer wi­thin Ger­many, where a lot has hap­pened in the last year on the topic of the pro­mo­tion of as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion. Since July 2021 for ex­ample, les­bian cou­ples with the right re­qui­re­ments can apply for fun­ding. If you and your partner are un­in­ten­tio­nally child­less de­s­pite your ef­forts, your common ad­dress is wi­thin Berlin and you have not yet started tre­at­ment, your chances are not bad. Pro­blems re­lated to fer­ti­lity, such as en­do­me­triosis or PCO syn­drome, are also a pre­re­qui­site. In ad­di­tion, you need to con­sider some other aspects, such as age, psy­cho­so­cial coun­se­ling and the like.

Ano­ther group that be­ne­fits from the new le­gis­la­tion are non-ma­r­ital co­ha­bi­ting cou­ples, i.e. unmar­ried cou­ples. It should be noted that the sub­sidy can only be claimed for se­cond and third at­tempts. Thus, the first at­tempt is not part of the sub­sidy. The tre­at­ments sup­ported here are li­mited to in vitro fer­ti­liz­a­tion (IVF) and in­tra­cy­to­plasmic sperm in­jec­tion (ICSI). It should be noted, however, that as of July 2021, both of these tre­at­ments are no longer sup­ported by the fe­deral go­vernment if for­eign sperm do­na­tion is part of the tre­at­ment.

An IVF cost co­verage of the Kin­der­wunsch fun­ding is li­mited to a ma­ximum of 800,00€.

ICSI costs are co­vered by the fer­ti­lity grant up to a ma­ximum of 900,00€.

If you would like to re­ceive a free and non-bin­ding con­sul­ta­tion on one of these to­pics from our pa­tient ad­vi­sors, you can book an ap­point­ment here.

You can also fill out the Berlin on­line form for as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion here.

Costs and info about sperm banks

All in­for­ma­tion about sperm banks in Berlin

In ad­di­tion to the in­ter­na­tio­nally es­tab­lished Eu­ro­pean sperm banks, there are also two local Berlin sperm banks. Thus, Berlin also has the most sperm banks in Ger­many.

Pa­ti­ents who choose one of these op­tions are not only cou­ples. Among sin­gles, Berlin sperm banks are also po­pular, be­cause they allow sperm do­na­tion in Ger­many for single women. The prices and costs of a Berlin sperm bank can differ from those of, for ex­ample, an in­ter­na­tional sperm bank from Den­mark due to dif­fe­rent pri­cing mo­dels. How much money you need in Berlin sperm banks and what you have to con­sider we can ex­p­lain to you in a simple and non-bin­ding way. Our friendly pa­tient ad­vi­sors at Fer­tilly have ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in this and many other areas and will be happy to ad­vise you. Fer­tilly also coope­rates with lea­ding Eu­ro­pean sperm banks and can offer you dis­counts and thus re­duce your costs for as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion.

If you are in­te­rested in what re­qui­re­ments a sperm donor must meet, what in­for­ma­tion sperm do­nors dis­c­lose about them­selves and how the pro­cess of sperm do­na­tion in Ger­many works, you can read all about it here.

What are im­portant cri­teria when choo­sing a fer­ti­lity centre?

In order to ful­fill your de­sire to have a child, you should choose a fer­ti­lity clinic that meets your re­qui­re­ments and where you feel com­for­table. When choo­sing a clinic, there are a number of aspects to con­sider in order to en­sure that the the­rapy goes as smoothly as pos­sible. The suc­cess of a the­rapy de­pends on va­rious fac­tors. Both the ex­pe­ri­ence and qua­li­fi­ca­tions of the me­dical team and the tech­no­lo­gical status of the la­bo­ra­tory equip­ment (for ex­ample, whe­ther the clinic has a clean room la­bo­ra­tory) can have an im­pact on the suc­cess rate.

In ad­di­tion to the suc­cess rate, there are other is­sues that can be de­cisive in the selec­tion pro­cess. Good coun­sel­ling on the choice of the­rapy, as well as per­sonal care and the avai­la­bi­lity of the doctor can help you to get rid of worries and un­ans­wered ques­tions. In order to go through with the pro­cess of ful­fil­ling your child wish with con­fi­dence, the ex­pe­ri­ences of pre­vious pa­ti­ents can also give an in­di­ca­tion of the qua­lity or short­co­mings of a prac­tice.

Ano­ther aspect are the costs. To avoid sur­prises, fer­ti­lity cen­ters that main­tain a high de­gree of price trans­pa­rency are re­com­mended. In the case of tre­at­ments with donor sperm, you should also make sure that there is a coope­ra­tion with an ex­pe­ri­enced sperm bank, as they often offer a larger selec­tion of donor pro­files and have many years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the field of sperm do­na­tion.

When selec­ting our partner cli­nics, we al­ways make sure that both he­te­ro­se­xual and ho­mo­se­xual cou­ples or sin­gles are treated.
