Therapy with your own eggs and Genetic testing

How much does the assisted reproduction cost?

The price depends on the type of therapy. Our clinic offers a wide range of possible treatments, ranging from the most basic, to highly specialised medical techniques. However, our philosophy is that the patient should be treated only with methods that are really necessary and beneficial. The information about the therapies we offer and the various prices will be given to patients by one of our coordinators. For more information, please fill in our contact form and we will do our best to reply within 24 hours.

Do you wish to have a child after 40?

Assisted reproduction in the Czech Republic is restricted by law, where the age limit of the female partner is 48 years + 364 days. However, the pregnancy rate after the age of 35 dramatically decreases, even though the longing for a child persists. This is exactly why we are here, ready to help. We give back hope to our patients who are over 40 with a history of unsuccessful treatments elsewhere.

What are the risks related to the therapy?

Our experienced doctors try minimise any health complications, however, as with any medical procedure, complications may occur in some rare cases. The most typical complication with the hormonal treatment is so called Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). When this happens, the ovaries increase in size, sometimes creating ovarian cysts. This increases the pressure in the lower abdomen and in the rarest cases the patient can experience an accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity. Especially in cases where the patient has reached pregnancy, there may be a need for her to be hospitalised. Hyperstimulation usually subsides spontaneously.

What is PGT? What is it used for?

Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is used for the genetic testing of the embryos prior to their transfer. It ensures that the embryos used for IVF are without any genetic anomalies. Thanks to this testing, we have increased the chances for impregnation and at the same time lowered the risk of abortion and miscarriages. Our clinic cooperates with the best genetic laboratory in the Czech Republic.

What examinations are needed prior to commencing the treatment?

For the determination of the right diagnosis and the best medical treatment plan, it is necessary to carry out some basic examinations of both the male and female partners. Those examinations can be carried out with your local gynaecologist and the results sent to us. Alternatively, they can be performed at our clinic during your personal consultation. If you already underwent the examinations during your previous cycles, the results can be sent to us as well. However, the results should be from less than 1 year ago.



Therapy with donated eggs

When can I start with therapy? What is the waiting time for the required donors? 

According to our experience we know that our patients like to start as soon as possible or by a certain date. We have a broad database of donors which allows us to often fulfill the requirements of our patients quickly and immediately proceed to the therapy without lowering the couple’s donor requirements. An indicative time estimate, counting from the first contact to the embryo transfer, is 2-2.5 months.

How high is the success rate with donated eggs at your clinic?

In women older than 36 years, the success rate for the first therapy is around 65%.

What special methods does your clinic offer in connection to the donated eggs therapy?

Our clinic offers various methods for enhancing the success rate. Not all methods are suitable for all of our patients and we focus on an individual approach. The recommendations regarding additional methods are chosen according to the patient’s individual needs.

How much does the therapy cost?

With egg donation therapy we have to include not only the medical care and attendance for our patient, but also for the donor. The expenses connected with the donors are: the donor selection, all the needed examinations before and after the treatment, stimulation medication and egg collection. The price includes sperm processing, fertilisation using the ICSI method, embryo cultivation, assisted hatching and transfer. Lastly, we store the embryos here at our clinic for one year. This therapy is more expensive than the others, however, unlike other treatments we guarantee at least 8 eggs, with a minimum of 2 embryos of a high enough quality to transfer (if the male sperm analysis is normozoospermia).

How many times do I have to come to the clinic in person?

All the examinations before the treatment itself can be carried out in your country. The first consultation with our doctors can be done via phone call or Skype. You only need to attend the clinic when providing a sperm sample and for the embryo transfer.
