Fertility investigations at Clinica Fertia in Spain
Examinations to discover the cause of infertility are normally started when a couple has unsuccessfully tried to conceive a child for one year.
The staff at Clinica Fertia address the following factors during fertility investigations:
Infertility and the couple
Infertility treatments and egg donation in Fuengirola, near Marbella in Spain
If the maturation and discharge of the egg (ovulation) does not occur naturally, it is possible to stimulate the ovaries to function properly. The easiest alternative is medication (clomiphene tablets), but if this treatment proves unsuccessful, hormonal injections are the next option.
If infertility is due to a mild disturbance in sperm production, cervical causes, or a so-called unexplained infertility, insemination treatment is a viable option. This treatment involves a sperm wash (that is, mixing sperm with a washing medium and centrifugation) of the sample, which will eliminate all but the best motile sperm cells.
In vitro fertilisation (IVF)
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) was originally developed as a treatment method used when there is a fault with the fallopian tubes. Nowadays, IVF is the most efficient treatment method regardless of the causes of infertility. With each couple in question, this treatment also allows us to obtain new information on the background of their infertility.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ISCI)
The IVF treatment may, if necessary, be combined with Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), which involves transferring a sperm through a thin glass pipette directly into the egg.
Embryo freezing and transfer
The IVF (in vitro fertilization) and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) treatments often produce more embryos than are needed for a single embryo transfer. In these cases, it is possible to freeze the spare, good quality embryos for later use.

Special infertility treatment techniques
Clinica Fertia specialises in the following specialised techniques:
Extended culture of embryos
Gene and chromosome diagnostics based on the embryo
If the ovaries do not produce eggs, or if the eggs are of such poor quality that they cannot be fertilised or developed, one alternative is to use donor eggs. The success rates with egg donation treatment are, in general, equal to those of in vitro fertilisation, and any spare good quality embryos which are not transferred can be frozen.
