The Unit of Reproductive Medicine at Humanitas is capable of assisting couples with fertility problems in all different phases, ranging from diagnosis to more complex treatments.
Diagnostic testing is necessary in order to arrive to an understanding as to why there are conception difficulties: hormonal tests, bacteriological investigations, high-resolution transvaginal ultrasound and Color-Doppler sonography.
Minimally invasive endoscopic surgical techniques (laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, falloposcopy) most of the time in Day Hospital, not only help diagnose the condition, but also help resolve it permanently for some cases of women’s diseases such as uterine malformations, intracavitary defects, endometriosis, and pelvic adhesion syndromes, which can make getting pregnant extremely difficult or even impossible.
The Unit of Reproductive Medicine at Humanitas uses an embryology laboratory where all extracorporeal fertilization techniques (from ovulation stimulation and egg retrieval in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection) are performed. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, being among the most innovative methods used, significantly increases the chances of fertilization and is often the only way to proceed in cases of severe male factor infertility.
