Fertility centers in Düsseldorf
The city of Düsseldorf has been growing continuously for many years. One reason for this is the rising number of births. Especially since the Covid-19 Pandemic, the registry office in Düsseldorf has recorded a record high in births. In 2021, 9500 babies were born here, which is another 500 more than in the previous year. However, not every couple can easily fulfil their desire to have a child. There are three fertility centers in Düsseldorf that all offer modern methods of assisted reproduction.
All information about fertility centers in Düsseldorf
The following treatments are available to couples who wish to have children:
In order to find out the cause of the unfulfilled desire to have children, infertility diagnostics are carried out on both the woman and the man. For women, cycle monitoring is performed as well as hormone diagnostics and ultrasound examinations. For men, a spermiogram is performed, which provides information about his fertility.
In this minimally invasive fertility treatment, sperm cells from the partner are introduced directly into the uterus. The cycle is usually stimulated by hormones.
Heterologous insemination uses sperm from a donor. This procedure is used by lesbian as well as heterosexual couples with extremely poor male sperm quality.
During In Vitro Fertilization, the woman’s cycle is stimulated with drugs to obtain as many mature eggs as possible. These are retrieved from the ovaries after ovulation is triggered and are combined with the man’s sperm in a petri dish.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is initially performed in the same way as IVF. The difference is that a sperm is inserted directly into the egg in the laboratory. This method is mostly used in cases of limited sperm quality to increase the chances of success.
If the time is not yet right for single women or couples to have a baby, eggs can be frozen as a precaution.
When should you go to a fertility center?
Women under the age of 35 should visit a fertility center if pregnancy has not occurred after one year of regular sexual intercourse with a partner, without contraception. As fertility levels significantly decrease from the age of 35, it is advised at this age that you only wait 6 months, after unsuccessful attempts, to visit a fertility center in Düsseldorf.
What does your fertility treatment in Düsseldorf cost?
The fertility centers in Düsseldorf do not provide information about the costs incurred by couples in the course of fertility treatment. In a preliminary consultation, the individual situation is discussed and then a treatment plan is created depending on the diagnosis. The costs for infertility treatments depend on the individual case, the chosen treatment method and the need for medication.
Is there any support for the desire to have children in Düsseldorf?
Yes, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia subsidises couples who want to fulfill their desire to have children by undergoing treatment at the Kinderwunschzentrum in Düsseldorf. Since the 2004 health reform, married couples only receive a 50% subsidy for the first three attempts from statutory health insurance companies. Unmarried couples and homosexual couples do not receive any support at all from most health insurance companies.
So that the desire for a child does not go unfulfilled due to financial reasons, the federal state takes over half of the own contribution, from that which still remains after deduction of the health insurance benefits. In the case of the fourth attempt, 50% of the personal contribution is taken over. Married couples as well as unmarried couples living in a stable partnership can apply for the subsidy. Couples from Düsseldorf can apply here.
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 ensure all your questions and concerns are answered. Hearing from the experiences of previous patients can also give an indication of the quality or shortcomings of a practice, this can also provide you with a level of confidence during the clinic selection process.
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, 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.
