Make your wish to have children come true!
It is the greatest wish of many a couple to have children, but unfortunately they
cannot conceive a child without medical help. Hormonal disorders, poor sperm quality
are just some of the causes that might lead to involuntary childlessness. As specialists in reproductive medicine at the IVF center in Salzburg, we would like to help you make your long-cherished dream of parenthood come true.
IVF: In Vitro Fertilization
In order to achieve pregnancy and the birth of a healthy child, we are relying on state-of-the-art methods such as in vitro fertilization using the IMSI procedure (Intra-cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection), blastocyst culture, embryo selection and numerous other IVF techniques.
Details on In Vitro Fertilization at our IVF center
The IVF procedure in a nutshell: In the laboratory of the IVF center, ova and spermatozoa are brought together in a test tube ("in vitro") or, to be more precise, in a petri dish.
In order to create excellent conditions for in vitro fertilization, the selection of suitable sperm is performed by means of a high-resolution microscope. The best sperm are isolated and then injected into the oocyte. After fertilization, the embryos are kept in culture to grow to the blastocyst stage (embryo with a complex structure consisting of 200 cells) within 5 days. Subsequently, they can be transferred to the uterus. The amount of treatment costs depends on the individual situation - we will be pleased to advise you on financial opportunities that are available to you as well as on possible coverage from the statutory health insurances.
Intra-Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection
Since the cause of infertility may be related to both male factor problems and female factor problems, we, at our IVF center, do not only strengthen the collected oocytes by keeping them in nutrient media, but we also use the so-called IMSI procedure (Intra-Cytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection): With this technique, we are able to assess sperm quality on the basis of microscopic analyses and select the most suitable spermatozoa in terms of their fertilization capacity. This provides us with a promising screening method to select the best sperm for microinjection.
Blastocyst Culture modeled on Nature
At the IVF center in Salzburg, the in vitro fertilization procedure resembles closely that of the natural process: On average, a fertilized oocyte needs five days to travel from the ovary to the uterus. At our IVF center, the development of the fertilized oocyte up to the blastocyst stage takes place in in vitro culture. Thanks to the progress made in modern reproductive medicine, we know which requirements need to be met with regard to the nutrient medium in order to provide for optimal embryo development.
Final Step before the Embryo Transfer: Blastocyst Selection
Blastocyst culture is followed by the selection of developed cells in order to identify the best embryos to be transferred in the course of an in vitro fertilization treatment in Austria. This is why, at our center in Salzburg, all oocytes that have been fertilized are kept in culture: We choose those blastocysts that are most likely to produce a pregnancy and make your desire to have a baby come true. After having transferred one to a maximum of two embryos at the blastocyst stage, the aim is to freeze (vitrification) the remaining embryos with a view to possible future pregnancies.
