Fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Düs­sel­dorf

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.

Ho­mo­lo­gous in­se­mi­na­tion

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

He­te­ro­lo­gous in­se­mi­na­tion uses sperm from a donor. This pro­ce­dure is used by les­bian as well as he­te­ro­se­xual cou­ples with ex­tre­mely poor male sperm qua­lity.


In 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 by punc­ture after ovu­la­tion is trig­gered and are com­bined with the man’s sperm in the 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.

So­cial Free­zing

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 even after one year wi­thout con­tracep­tion with a partner and with re­gular se­xual in­ter­course. Since fer­ti­lity de­cre­ases from the age of 35, you should visit a fer­ti­lity center in Düs­sel­dorf at this age after only six months of un­suc­cessful at­tempts.


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.

Sup­port for the de­sire to have children in Düs­sel­dorf

Is there any sup­port for the de­sire to have children in Düs­sel­dorf?

Yes, the state of North Rhine-West­phalia sub­si­dizes 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 the sta­tu­tory he­alth insurance com­pa­nies. Unmar­ried cou­ples and ho­mo­se­xual cou­ples do not re­ceive any sup­port at all from most he­alth insurance com­pa­nies.

So that the ful­fill­ment of the de­sire for a child does not fail be­cause of money, the fe­deral state takes over half of the own con­tri­bu­tion, which still re­mains after de­duc­tion of the he­alth insurance be­ne­fits. In the case of the fourth at­tempt, even 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.

Cri­teria for selec­tion

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 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.
