Infertility treatments in Spain available at Clinica Medrano

Infertility study

An infertility study is begun when a couple has been unsuccessful for one year in trying to conceive a child. It involves checking:

  •     That both maturation of the egg and ovulation are proceeding normally
  •     That the uterus and Fallopian Tubes show a normal, healthy anatomy
  •     That a sufficient number of motile sperm cells exists

Artificial insemination

Artificial insemination is a very straightforward treatment that consists of first selecting a sample of sperm in the laboratory through a process called sperm capacitation. The sperm suspension is then introduced into the uterine cavity.  Insemination can be performed using either semen from the male partner (IAC) or from intervention of a donor (IAD), in which case an authorised sperm bank is used.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF begins with a cycle of ovulatory stimulation with the goal of making several eggs (ova) mature, which are then recovered and cultured with a determined quantity of sperm cells that have been previously selected through the process of sperm capacitation.  Once the highest-quality embryos are selected, they are transferred to the uterus two or three days after follicular puncture (egg retrieval).

Sperm microinjection (ICSI)

The sperm microinjection (ICSI) technique consists of the introduction of a sperm cell into the interior part of an egg. It can even be carried out with sperm samples of very low quality, as only one sperm cell per retrieved egg is required. It is also a possibility for azoospermic patients who have had a testicular biopsy.  Just as in IVF, egg retrieval (follicular puncture) is facilitated by ultrasound, following ovarian stimulation. The eggs that are fertilised will then be cultured in the laboratory until they are transferred to the uterus, just as in IVF.

Other infertility treatments in Spain offered by Clinica Medrano

  • Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD):  This technique is called for when there is a need to avoid the birth of babies with genetic or chromosomal abnormalities. It consists of performing a biopsy of each embryo obtained following a process of IVF-ICSI in order to extract a cell and submit it to an exhaustive genetic analysis so that healthy embryos can be differentiated from those carrying some kind of pathology.
  • Embyro bank: Clinica Medrano has an authorised embryo bank, originating from couples who have undergone cycles of IVF-ICSI. Viable embryos that have not been transferred to the woman are cryoconserved, as long as there is patient consent, for whatever use that is established by law. Therefore, possible uses for these embryos may include their use by the same woman or partner in later cycles, donation to other couples for reproductive purposes, or donation to research.
  • Egg donation: There are many couples who, for different reasons, must resort to using eggs from donors in order to solve their infertility problems. Thanks to the enormous generosity of many people, these couples can enjoy parenthood. The fact that donors are young women allows for excellent rates of gestation to be obtained.
