Fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment in Bremen

All in­for­ma­tion about fer­ti­lity cen­ters in Bremen

The fol­lowing tre­at­ments are of­fered by the Fer­ti­lity Center:

Na­tural cycle in­se­mi­na­tion

In this fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment, the woman’s cycle is clo­sely mo­ni­tored to pre­dict the time of ovu­la­tion. By avoiding hor­mone pre­pa­ra­tions, this form of as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion is par­ti­cu­larly gentle. However, it is only ad­vi­s­able if the woman has a re­gular cycle.

In­se­mi­na­tion with hor­mone ad­mi­nis­tra­tion

In most cases, the doc­tors at the Fer­ti­lity Center in Bremen re­com­mend in­se­mi­na­tion with hor­mone sti­mu­la­tion. The ad­van­tage is that the time of ovu­la­tion is exactly pre­dicted or trig­gered under hor­mone ad­mi­nis­tra­tion. The­re­fore, there is no risk of mis­sing the time.

IVF

In IVF tre­at­ment, women with an unful­filled de­sire to have children take hor­mones and trigger their ovu­la­tion at the right time. Under brief an­esthesia, the eggs are re­trieved and placed in a petri dish along with the man’s sperm. The egg and sperm then find their way tog­e­ther in­de­pendently and wi­thout ex­ternal in­flu­ence.

ICSI

ICSI tre­at­ment in­iti­ally pro­ceeds in the same way as IVF tre­at­ment, with the dif­fe­rence that the sperm cells are in­serted into the egg in the la­bo­ra­tory using a spe­cial in­jec­tion needle. This pro­ce­dure is mostly used in case of in­suf­fi­cient sperm qua­lity.

Pa­ti­ents may also opt for sperm do­na­tion if a les­bian couple wants to ful­fill their de­sire to have a child, or if the sperm qua­lity of the man is not suf­fi­cient for suc­cessful fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment in he­te­ro­se­xual cou­ples. However, the cli­nics often coope­rate with other sperm banks from Ger­many and ab­road.

Costs

What does your fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment in Bremen cost?

The cost of fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment de­pends on va­rious fac­tors, first and fo­re­most the choice of tre­at­ment me­thod. For ex­ample, the cost of in­se­mi­na­tion is much lower than for the IVF and ICSI me­thods. The cost of in­se­mi­na­tion for cou­ples with he­alth insurance is bet­ween 400 and 800 euros. ICSI is the most ex­pen­sive me­thod of as­sisted re­pro­duc­tion. Tog­e­ther with the me­di­ca­tion, cou­ples can ex­pect costs of up to 6000 euros.

Sup­port for the de­sire to have children in Bremen

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

In No­vember 2021, the Bremen Se­nate de­cided to ex­pand sup­port for cou­ples with an unful­filled de­sire to have children. Bremen is playing a pionee­ring role in this. While na­ti­on­wide only mar­ried, he­te­ro­se­xual cou­ples can be sup­ported with state funds in ful­fil­ling their de­sire to have children, Bremen now also sup­ports unmar­ried and same-sex cou­ples. This will pro­vide con­si­derable re­lief for in­vol­un­ta­rily child­less cou­ples. Until now, most he­alth insurance com­pa­nies co­vered a ma­ximum of 50% of the tre­at­ment costs for usually only three at­tempts. A total of 80,000 euros is avail­able to the state of Bremen as ad­di­tional fun­ding. The sub­sidy co­vers 50% of the co-pay­ment that cou­ples have to make.

Pre­re­qui­sites for the sub­sidy are:

  • Cer­ti­fied pro­spect of suc­cess of the fer­ti­lity tre­at­ment
  • Me­dical de­ter­mi­na­tion of in­fer­ti­lity

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 cen­ters 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.
