The Humanitas Department of Reproductive Medicine, is capable of assisting couples with fertility problems in various phases, with care ranging from diagnostics to complex treatments.

In the past twenty years, the Department has helped over 21,000 couples to start a family, thanks to its highly specialized team composed of gynecologists, andrologists, anesthesiologists, geneticists, psychologists, biologists, as well as its modern equipment.

The Department specialists treat various women’s health conditions, such as uterine malformations, intracavitary defects, endometriosis, and pelvic adhesion syndromes –  that can make getting pregnant extremely difficult or even impossible  – through the use of minimally invasive endoscopic surgical techniques (laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, falloposcopy), most of the time performed as Day Hospital treatments.

The Department of Reproductive Medicine uses an embryology laboratory, where all extracorporeal fertilization techniques (from ovulation stimulation and egg retrieval to 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.

Diagnostic testing is necessary in order to arrive to an understanding as to why there are conception difficulties: that is why, Humanitas Fertility Center offers a convenient diagnostic package called One Day, where the couple can undergo all preliminary tests during a single day. Below you can find some useful information about this first step in your reproductive treatment.
