IVF is the abbreviation of In Vitro Fertilization. This means that the eggs are fertilized by the sperm outside the womb (in vitro= in the glass, in other words: in a “test tube”).

In principle, the IVF procedure involves aspiration of the mature eggs in the female’s ovaries and fertilization of the eggs in a petri dish in the laboratory. After 2-3 days, one or two embryos are transferred back into the womb. If a surplus amount of eggs is retrieved, we can freeze them for later use.

Who qualifies for IVF treatment:

  1. Females with blocked/damaged fallopian tubes
  2. Males with reduced sperm quality
  3. Females with endometriosis
  4. Unexplained infertility
  5. Sterilised male or female
  6. Unsuccessful insemination with partner sperm or donor sperm
  7. Couples where the female has not yet turned 46 at initiation of treatment (cf the Danish Act on artificial fertilization)
  8. Singles
  9. Lesbians

IVF treatment is the treatment with the highest pregnancy success rate. The chances of becoming pregnant after IVF treatment is approximately 40% per treatment, depending on age (see our results here).

Mandatory HIV and hepatitis tests
According to the EU tissue directive, fertility clinics are required to demand that a test for AIDS (HIV1 and 2) and Hepatitis B and C be made on the male as well as the female in connection with IVF treatment. Payment for these tests is included in our prices, and the blood samples are collected here at the clinic.

IVF treatment.
We provide 3 kinds of hormone stimulation treatment:

1. Long-term treatment = standard treatment (long down-regulation)
2. Short-term treatment (no down regulation)
3. Low dose stimulation treatment – especially suitable for young fertile females who need treatment because of their partner’s reduced sperm quality.

The lines below provide a description of the course of treatment in our standard treatment procedure. The normal IVF treatment is called “long-term treatment” and includes down-regulation of your own hormones with a nasal spray (Suprecur) and a subsequent stimulation of your ovaries with FSH/hMG (Gonal F, Puregon or Menopur).
After a few days’ treatment, the eggs are retrieved and fertilized (using micro-insemination (ICSI), where necessary). The eggs are then cultivated for a few days, following which they are transferred to the female’s womb as embryos.

Some patients will be given ” short-term treatment”. This treatment excludes the initial down-regulation procedure, and you need not come to the clinic before Period Day 2. You can read more about this type of treatment on our homepage. 

Medicine costs
Your expenses for medicine will vary depending on your citizenship. In Denmark the cost will be be approx. DKK 2000-3000.
