5. Sperm retrieval

ivf mainz 765

It is important that you sperm makes it to our laboratory as soon as possible after the egg cell retrieval and that it is as sterile as possible. The sperm can be obtained at home through masturbation but in this case, it must be brought to our laboratory as soon as possible. The maximum transportation time of 30 minutes should not be exceeded; the specimen should be body warm. Alternatively, the specimen can be also obtained in our centre. There are two rooms that you can use for this purpose in our fertility centre.

The sperm is cleaned in the laboratory and then concentrated with the help of special preparation methods (swim-up method or density gradient centrifugation).

In the case of especially limiting sperm findings, our preparation methods and of course the ICSI procedure is possible.
