Fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment in Dort­mund

All in­for­ma­tion about fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Dort­mund

Dort­mund has a high den­sity of me­dical spe­cia­lists, me­dical contact points and fer­ti­lity cen­ters. The lea­ding me­thods of as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion are of­fered. In ad­di­tion to in­tra­cy­to­plasmic sperm in­jec­tion (ICSI) and in vitro fer­ti­liza­tion (IVF), pa­ti­ents can also opt for he­te­ro­logous tre­at­ments with sperm do­na­tion. The choice de­pends on your phy­sical con­di­tions and your per­sonal ex­pec­ta­tions. Be­cause as unique as every body and every life si­tua­tion is, your tre­at­ment should be no dif­fe­rent .

Our team is aware that the de­sire to have your own child is as­so­ciated with many emo­tions. With a lot of em­pathy and a fee­ling for your needs, we are at your side to ad­vise and ac­com­pany you. We sup­port you in every phase — from the first contact up until the birth.


A fer­ti­lity center to suit your taste

It is im­portant that you feel 100% taken care of du­ring the fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment. Spe­cial at­ten­tion should be paid to the equip­ment of the fer­ti­lity center and the qua­li­fi­ca­tions of the doc­tors. The at­mo­sphere on site should also be per­ceived as very plea­sant.

In each clinic there is also a contact person who is re­spon­sible for your per­sonal well-being. If you have any ques­tions about fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment in your area, you can contact our pa­tient ad­vi­sors with con­fi­dence. Talk to us!


How much does your fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment cost?

The costs for as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion can be very high and, de­pen­ding on the extent, hardly af­fordable out of one’s own po­cket. In­trau­te­rine in­se­mi­na­tion (IUI) in­volves pla­cing the part­ner’s sperm di­rectly into the wo­man’s uterus to in­crease the li­keli­hood of pregnancy. Mul­tiple at­tempts are often ne­ces­sary.
In vitro fer­ti­liza­tion (IVF) is far more com­plex. The wo­man’s re­trieved eggs come into contact with the man’s treated sperm in the la­bo­ra­tory. If the fu­sion is suc­cessful, the fer­ti­lized egg is in­serted into the wo­man’s uterus. The great ad­van­tage is the short di­stance the sperm have to travel.

In its co­ali­tion agree­ment in No­vember 2021, the new German go­vern­ment an­nounced that un­in­ten­tio­nally child­less women would re­ceive better sup­port in the fu­ture. In ad­di­tion, under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tances, he­alth insu­rance com­pa­nies will cover a pro­por­tion of the costs of your tre­at­ment. If you would like to re­ceive more in­for­ma­tion about this, please contact our pa­tient ad­vi­sors here.


Is there a pro­mo­tion for the de­sire to have children in Dort­mund?

The new German go­vern­ment is also con­cerned about Ger­mans ful­fil­ling their de­sire to have children. For this re­ason, it is pos­sible to apply for state sup­port from both the fe­deral and state go­vern­ments. The “Gui­de­line on the Gran­ting of Al­lo­wances for the Pro­mo­tion of As­sisted Re­pro­duc­tion Me­a­sures” serves as the basis for the fun­ding of fer­ti­lity tre­at­ments. This gui­de­line sti­pu­lates that only cou­ples whose main re­si­dence is in North Rhine-West­phalia and whose tre­at­ment takes place in a re­pro­duc­tion fa­ci­lity in NRW can be­nefit from the fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance. Un­mar­ried he­te­ro­se­xual cou­ples are granted be­ne­fits in the form of an ad­di­tional flat rate of 30% on cer­tain ma­ximum fun­ding amounts for the first to third tre­at­ment cycle.

The new fe­deral go­vern­ment be­lieves that child­less cou­ples and sin­gles who wish to have children should be given the op­por­tu­nity to have a child. To this end, it let it be known in its co­ali­tion agree­ment that in­vol­un­t­a­rily child­less per­sons should be better sup­ported in the fu­ture.

Fur­ther re­qui­re­ments are:

  • Proven in­fer­ti­lity by a doctor
  • Proven suc­cess of fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment
  • A psy­cho­so­cial con­sul­ta­tion

If you would like to re­ceive free, no-ob­li­ga­tion ad­vice from our pa­tient ad­vi­sors on any of these to­pics, you can book an ap­point­ment here.


Cur­rent info about sperm banks in Ger­many

The costs of a sperm bank in Ger­many can differ from those of a sperm bank ab­road, even bet­ween neigh­bou­ring count­ries prices can vary greatly, due to dif­fe­rent pri­cing mo­dels.

What are im­portant cri­teria when choo­sing a fer­ti­lity center?

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 cen­tres that main­tain a high de­gree of price trans­pa­rency are re­com­mended. In the case of tre­at­ments with donor sperm, it is re­com­mended you en­sure 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 al­ways make sure that both he­te­ro­se­xual and ho­mo­se­xual cou­ples, as well as single women are treated.
