Ge­neral in­for­ma­tion about fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Ha­nover

More than 1 mil­lion in­ha­bi­tants live in the en­tire Han­nover Re­gion. The fer­ti­lity rate (children per woman) is about 1.33. In 2019, there were al­most 11000 births. The­re­fore, a re­la­tively large number of fer­ti­lity cen­ters have also es­tab­lished them­selves here.

Fer­tilly helps you find the most sui­table fer­ti­lity center for your needs.

What costs can you ex­pect?

The costs for as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion are so­me­times 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.


Here you can find im­portant in­for­ma­tion about the fer­ti­lity clinic in Ha­nover

The sup­ported tre­at­ments are li­mited to in vitro fer­ti­liz­a­tion (IVF) and in­tra­cy­to­plasmic sperm in­jec­tion (ICSI). However, it should be noted that since July 2021, both of these tre­at­ments are no longer sup­ported by the fe­deral go­vernment if for­eign sperm do­na­tion is part of the tre­at­ment.

In the case of mar­ried cou­ples, up to 50% of the re­mai­ning co-pay­ment can be sub­si­dized, after sett­le­ment with the he­alth insurance or sub­sidy of­fice. For unmar­ried cou­ples, the sub­sidy is 25% for the first three tre­at­ment cy­cles. The­re­after, this in­cre­ases to 50%.

At most, the fol­lowing sub­si­dies can be ex­pected:

For the first through third tre­at­ment cy­cles:

IVF tre­at­ment up to 800,- € of the per­sonal con­tri­bu­tion and for
ICSI tre­at­ment up to 900,- € of the co-pay­ment,

For the fourth tre­at­ment cycle:

IVF tre­at­ment up to 1.600,- € of the co-pay­ment and in case of
ICSI tre­at­ment up to 1.800,- € of the co-pay­ment.

At­ten­tion. Until pro­bably the end of Ja­nuary 2022 there is a fun­ding stop for as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion of the state of Lower Sa­xony!

Cur­rent info about sperm banks in Ger­many

The prices and costs of a sperm bank can differ from those of an in­ter­na­tional sperm bank from Den­mark for ex­ample, due to dif­fe­rent price mo­dels.

How much money you need for a sperm bank and what you need to con­sider, we can ex­p­lain to you ea­sily and wi­thout ob­li­ga­tion. Our friendly pa­tient ad­vi­sors at Fer­tilly will give you a com­pre­hen­sive in­sight into this topic and will be happy to ad­vise you. Talk to us!

We at Fer­tilly also coope­rate with lea­ding Eu­ro­pean sperm banks and can offer you cer­tain dis­counts.

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 works in Ger­many or ab­road, 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 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.
