Many couples dream of having a child, nurturing it, and watching it grow up. When traditional conception methods fail, reproductive medicine centres and clinics are there to lend a helping hand.

Why Choose the Czech Republic?

The Czech Republic was among the first in this respect – in 1982, a mere four years after the world premiere of assisted production, the first child conceived in this manner was born. The quality of infertility treatment in Czech clinics is among the best in the world. Specialized healthcare facilities provide comprehensive services in the fields of assisted reproduction and gynaecology, andrology, urology, and embryology. Thanks to a broad spectrum of methods, adherence to strict criteria important for successful treatment, and long-term experience, Czech IVF (in-vitro fertilization) teams are among the best in the world, and success rates are also very high: 70 % in cases involving donated eggs.
Czech comprehensive IVF centres can help up to 90 % of couples, often even those whose situation seems to be hopeless. Clinics can offer extensive experience in all assisted reproduction procedures available in the best centres around the world.


Anonymous Donation

Czech legislation also plays an important role when it comes to assisted reproduction. This is because it permits anonymous donation and the ability to choose the physical characteristics of the donated egg or sperm. As opposed to other countries, donation of eggs and sperm is legal, voluntary, and safe. It is based on anonymity, and is not paid, nevertheless, donors are reimbursed for any provable and reasonable directly related expenses they have incurred, as well as receiving compensation for any donation-related inconvenience.


What Treatments Does the Czech Republic Offer?

One assisted reproduction method is in-vitro fertilization (IVF), which is based on stimulating a female patient’s ovaries with hormones. As a result, extra oocytes mature in the ovaries, and are then collected and fertilized in an embryological lab. The collection is performed on an outpatient basis and lasts no longer than 20 minutes. After the procedure, the woman relaxes in bed in a pleasant environment, and after a check-up can return to her family. Foreign clients can combine a visit to a reproductive clinic with a stay at a Czech therapeutic spa located near the selected clinic.
To prepare an egg for fertilization, intracystplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used, where one sperm is introduced directly into the prepared egg. This method can also be improved by selecting higher-quality sperm used to fertilize egg cells (PICSI). The embryotransfer (ET) technique is often used in combination with IVF, where embryos are placed in the womb so that pregnancy in the mother’s body can commence. Pre-implantation genetic diagnostics (PGD) are an important part of assisted reproduction, which permit examination of the egg or embryo prior to it being introduced into the womb.

The quality of lab work is very important to the IVF process. Labs in Czech centres quickly implement new findings into their practice, and embryos are genetically analyzed or constantly monitored in an embryoscope, an incubator where they develop while being monitored by a camera. This allows for timely discovery of any developmental irregularities, and to select embryos from which a healthy child will be born. Labs also monitor other parameters that can indicate impending permanent loss of or interference with fertility.
