Treatment - step by step

Sperm from a suitable anonymous donor are used to fertilise the woman's eggs. A suitable donor will be selected by our doctors on the basis of the questionnaire you completed. You will receive non-identifying information about the donor while preserving his anonymity (age, appearance, blood group, interests).


Preparatory phase

Number 1
Selecting a suitable donor
  • First you will be asked to fill out a form (donor typing), where you will specify your requirements regarding the donor’s appearance.
  • We will ask you to provide us with your photo or, with your permission, we will take a photo of you at the clinic.
  • We will look for a suitable donor based on your requirements.
  • You will be informed as soon as a suitable donor has been found.
  • We will prepare a stimulation protocol with you, according to which you will self-administer subcutaneous hormonal injections (Pergoveris, Elonva, Benfola, Menopur, Puregon, Gonal).
  • You can buy the stimulating medication from us or we will prepare a prescription that you can use to buy the medication in any EU Member State (prices in the Czech Republic are approx. 10-20% cheaper than in the EU).
  • Usually on the 2nd or 3rd day of your menstrual cycle (i.e. the 2nd or 3rd day of menstrual bleeding) you will start to administer injections as indicated in your stimulation protocol. Please, inform us when you begin stimulation.
  • Injections are given subcutaneously in the area below the navel, approximately every 24 hours, usually for 7 days.
  • An ultrasound scan will then be performed to measure the size and the number of follicles.
  • The ultrasound can be performed at our clinic or by agreement at your gynaecologist (we will discuss the results of the scan with you by e-mail or by phone).
  • Based on the results of the ultrasound, it will be decided whether you need to continue the stimulation of your ovaries (in which case another ultrasound will follow, usually in 2 days) or whether to end stimulation.
  • If the follicles are large enough, you will administer your final injection (Ovitrelle), which will induce the final maturation of your eggs.
  • Eggs will be retrieved 2 days after the application of the final injection.
  • You will be asked to come to the clinic with your partner on the day of egg retrieval.
  • It is imperative to have your identity card (passport) with you.

Egg retrieval - follicular puncture

Number 2
Egg retrieval - follicular puncture
  • You will come to the clinic at the agreed time.
  • The procedure will be performed under short general anaesthesia (about 10-15 min.) - we require pre-operative tests, performed by your GP (the results/report should not be more than 6 months old).
  • We will send you the request form for pre-operative testing by e-mail.
  • Pre-operative tests should also include serology test results (STD) for hepatitis B and C, HIV and syphilis (also not more than 6 months old).
  • When retrieving eggs, these tests are repeated to confirm negativity (as required by law).
  • Eggs are retrieved transvaginally using a thin needle guided by ultrasound.
  • The contents of the ovarian follicles (follicular fluid containing the eggs) are aspirated.
  • The fluid is then passed to the laboratory for further processing.
  • You will be discharged from the clinic no more than 1 hour after the procedure. Please, make sure you have someone to take you home, as you must not drive, given
  • the residual effects of the anaesthesia (sedatives).
  • Mature eggs are fertilised with the best quality selected sperm, usually using the ICSI method of injection directly into the egg.
Embryo culture
  • Following fertilisation, the embryos will begin to divide and grow.
  • Embryos can be cultured in the laboratory for up to 120 hours (5 days), after which they must be transferred into the uterus or frozen.
  • The embryologist will determine the best time for embryo transfer based on the number, development and quality of the embryos.
  • The purpose of the complex process of assessing embryo quality is to determine the optimal time for embryo transfer to ensure the highest chance of pregnancy.
  • Surplus good quality embryos will be frozen for possible further use.
DAY 3-5

Embryo transfer

Number 3
Embryo transfer
  • The transfer of the embryo or embryos into the uterus is performed without anaesthesia using a thin flexible catheter (tube), the end of which is guided by ultrasound for precise placement.
  • The transfer is completely painless.
  • The embryos are injected into the uterine cavity with a small amount of liquid (culture medium).
  • You will then rest in bed for about 10-15 minutes and be subsequently discharged from the clinic.
DAY 5-19

After transfer

Number 4
Regimen after transfer
  • Rest is recommended for 1-2 weeks after embryo transfer (no strenuous physical activity, sexual intercourse, or hot baths).
  • You can go back to your normal routine after 1-2 weeks, but we still recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity.
  • Take your medication regularly as indicated in the discharge report.
DAY 25

Pregnancy test

Number 5
Pregnancy test, medication and monitoring pregnancy
  • Have a pregnancy blood test 14 days after embryo transfer and let us know the result.
  • If the pregnancy test is positive, continue to take the prescribed medication until the 12th week of pregnancy and make an appointment for an ultrasound (in approximately 10-14 days) with your doctor.
  • After the 12th week of pregnancy, gradually taper and discontinue the medication as recommended by your doctor.
  • Standard prenatal screening also takes place, together with a check-up at your gynaecologist´s.
  • If the pregnancy test is negative, stop all medication and contact us. We will discuss the next steps with you and plan for the transfer of your frozen embryos.
