Why we are different
Most children in the country conceived through in vitro fertilization techniques and a success rate that constantly and significantly exceeds the European average.
Specialized and dedicated entirely to reproductive medicine, we successfully treat the most difficult cases, without neglecting prevention, safety and physical and emotional comfort. We are proud of the scientific and educational activity, special events and programs, and from 2019 with the access to the most varied possibilities of international collaboration, by joining the FutureLife group, a leader in European reproductive medicine.
When pregnancy does not occur after 6-12 months without protection, an evaluation of both partners is recommended to determine if there are risk factors or dysfunctions that affect fertility.
Freezing reproductive cells allows the preservation of fertility for varying periods of time, both for social purposes, but especially in the case of diseases or medical treatments that can irreversibly affect fertility.
The Gynera Clinic offers the latest and most effective methods for cryopreservation of oocytes, sperm or embryos in its own accredited and functional Reproductive Cell Bank since 2007.
In vitro fertilization IVF/ICSI
It is an assisted reproduction technique in which fertilization takes place outside the mother’s body.
The oocytes are taken by ovarian puncture and fertilized in the laboratory with sperm. Own or donor reproductive cells can be used.
The embryos obtained are cultured and evaluated, in order to appreciate their chance of implantation.
An embryo is transferred to the uterus, and additional embryos can be frozen for variable periods.
IVF with donated oocytes
In vitro fertilization with donated oocytes is recommended when infertility is determined by the quality of the oocytes or their low reserve.
The most common indications are:
Age over 43-44 years
Very low oocyte reserve
Repeated IVF failures with own oocytes, attributed to embryo quality
Communicable genetic diseases
In the case of couples with severe male pathology, untreatable, or women without a partner, sperm donation is an extremely effective solution. Sperm donation may also be useful in couples with certain communicable genetic diseases.
The sperm donor can be known, a relative or a friend, who wants to go through the legal and medical steps absolutely necessary for donation.
The sperm donor can be anonymous, in which case the sperm sample can be purchased from a Sperm Bank.
Sperm donation is voluntary and free, according to European regulations.
Some adjuvant therapies and techniques are effective in particular situations.
In the case of others, the use is empirical, being insufficiently studied or controversial.
There is an extremely wide range of complementary techniques and therapies, both drugs and laboratory techniques or interventional procedures that aim to improve the chances of success.
One of the most effective fertility treatments is ovarian stimulation, used either to treat ovulation disorders or to increase the chances of successful assisted reproduction.
When used alone, it is administered to regulate or induce monoovulation (ovulation of a single egg), restoring natural fertility.
In the case of in vitro fertilization, the goal is to obtain more mature eggs, respectively more embryos and to allow the selection of viable embryos.
It is a procedure by which the processed sperm is introduced into the uterus, during the fertile period.
Your partner’s semen, harvested the same day or previously frozen, can be used, or semen from a sperm donor can be used.
Male fertility is affected in half of all cases of couple infertility, usually without any symptoms or warning signs.
If a man still has children, this does not guarantee that he has maintained good fertility.
In all cases where pregnancy does not occur, a spermogram is also indicated, a simple investigation that can provide useful information about fertility.

Genetic testing PGT
Genetic testing of preimplantation embryos (PGT) involves the analysis of cells extracted from embryos obtained by in vitro fertilization, before their implantation in the uterus.
Given the invasiveness of the technique, the high costs and the risk of reducing the number of viable embryos for embryo transfer, these tests are not routinely performed, but are recommended on the basis of genetic counseling, when there is an increased risk of embryonic genetic abnormalities.
The tested embryos are not transferred to the uterus immediately after the biopsy but are frozen to wait for the test results.
