Direct Introduction of Sperm Into the Uterus

Introducing sperm into the uterus through a fine catheter is called insemination. Only the highest quality of sperm is used for this procedure. 
Insemination is usually performed alongside some gentle stimulation of the ovaries. When the egg is ready to ovulate, ovulation is triggered by a hormone injection. We perform the insemination shortly before ovulation, at our clinic in Zug. 

This approach may be the right choice for men with mild to moderate infertility, for couples with unexplained infertility or for women with conditions that reduce sperm penetration into the uterus.

With this treatment, you should expect one to three checks per cycle. If certain eligibility criteria are met, health insurance will cover the costs for three treatments. 

  • During this procedure, a vaginal speculum is inserted. The insertion of the catheter through the cervix into the uterus is usually painless. The procedure only takes a few minutes.

  • If the woman is is over 40, health insurance may not cover the costs. We will clarify in advance whether health insurance will cover the costs in your individual case. If the fallopian tubes are blocked or sperm are severely compromised, such treatment is not advisable and therefore not offered by us. In such cases, we are happy to discuss other fertility treatment options.
