Infertility
meddőség debrecen

Infertility (failure to conceive) affects 15% of the couples who want to have a child, the incidence of the condition being on the rise. Couples undergoing examinations because the woman has failed to conceive and being treated for infertility often have to make enormous psychological and financial sacrifices until she becomes pregnant. Although the term “fail to conceive” has quite negative connotations in many languages, it is important to note, that most of such problems can be treated successfully and the use of a variety of different methods at our disposal usually facilitates conception. Working as the head assistant professor of the Infertility Clinic at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Debrecen, every day, I am confronted with the fears of “infertile” couples associated with their condition and the hardships the will have endure. Therefore the examination protocol has been compiled in a manner to put the least exhaustive investigations at the beginning of the series of examinations. In many cases, these examinations do reveal the causes of infertility so treatment can be started and the patient may conceive soon. If the basic tests fail to reveal the underlying cause, the next steps include examinations with little discomfort and even surgery can be considered. All of these procedures are done routinely and safely today.
