All Information about Childbearing support in Berlin
Berlin is an interesting pioneer within Germany, where a lot has happened recently on the topic of the promotion of assisted reproduction. For example, since July 2021 lesbian couples, having met certain requirements, can apply for state-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 of success are relatively high. Other problems related to fertility, such as endometriosis or PCO syndrome, are also a prerequisite. Additionally, other aspects to consider are 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. Hence, 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.

All information about sperm banks in Berlin
In addition to the internationally established European sperm banks, there are also two local Berlin sperm banks. As such, Berlin also has the most sperm banks in Germany.
Berlin sperm banks are also particularly popular among singles, because they allow sperm donation for single women. This is not always the case across Germany. It is also important to be aware of the varying costs between sperm banks in Berlin and those of sperm banks abroad, this is usually due to different pricing models between countries. We at Fertilly can simply, and in a non-binding way, explain these costs to you and other important factors to consider. Our friendly patient advisors at Fertilly have extensive experience in this and many other areas, and are happy to advise you. Fertilly also cooperates with leading European sperm banks and can offer you significant discounts, reducing your costs for assisted reproduction.

What are important criteria when choosing a fertility centre?
In order to fulfil your desire to have a child, you should choose a fertility clinic that meets your specific requirements and importantly where you feel comfortable. When choosing a clinic, there are a number of aspects to consider 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 reduce personal concerns and ensure no questions go unanswered. To instil personal confidence in the process, hearing the experiences of previous patients can also give an indication of the quality or shortcomings of a practice.
Another aspect to consider 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, it is recommended that there is a cooperation between clinics and 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 ensure that both heterosexual and homosexual couples as well as single women are treated.
