Infertility issues affect many people around the world, impacting approximately 20 percent of couples of reproductive age, with factors more or less evenly distributed between men and women. However, in recent years, fertility treatments have become more accessible and significantly more successful than before, and the Czech Republic is quickly becoming a first-class destination for many couples turning to IVF to grow their families.  

Top professionalism without barriers

One of the leading fertility clinics on the Czech market is Repromeda, which specializes in reproductive medicine and medical genetics. In addition to highly qualified specialists, the clinic is equipped with modern technologies, like embryological laboratory methods and genetic testing, which are gradually becoming the foundation of IVF treatment and significantly increasing the success rate.

Repromeda, with branches in Brno and Ostrava, prides itself on its personalized approach to patient care. Doctors and staff speak multiple languages, allowing treatments to be conducted in English, German, Hungarian, Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, and Italian. A designated coordinator will be available to discuss all the treatment details with you and will be at your disposal throughout the entire process.

IVF treatment: What to expect

The IVF process is typically divided into several phases. Repromeda's treatments start with thorough testing. For women, this includes an ultrasound and hormonal and genetic testing. Men, meanwhile, undergo a spermiogram and genetic testing. 

Based on the results, a hormonal stimulation plan is established. The objective is to induce the maturation of a higher number of eggs within the woman's ovaries compared to a natural cycle. Upon maturation, the eggs are retrieved under brief anesthesia, typically lasting around 10 minutes. Simultaneously, sperm is collected in a specialized container.

In the clinic’s embryology laboratory,the egg and sperm are united, initiating fertilization, and the resulting embryos are further developed in an incubator. After genetic testing, the most promising embryo is transferred back into the woman's uterus to await a pregnancy test.

Czech health insurance companies provide extensive coverage for IVF for women aged 22 to 40. If only one embryo is transferred into the uterus during IVF, insurance companies will contribute up to four IVF cycles. As a guide, the copayments for one IVF cycle range from CZK 40,000 to CZK 70,000, depending on the supportive methods you choose with your doctor.

Even though the journey to parenthood can be challenging, reproductive medicine today can help most couples. The team at the Repromeda clinic is composed of experienced professionals and is ready to help you achieve your dream of starting a family.
