Which are the initial fertility tests?

Initial tests to diagnose infertility are very simple and usually painless. In addition to a physical examination and analysis of the patient’s medical history, it is necessary to carry out a gynecological vaginal ultrasound. During this procedure the doctor uses a vaginal ultrasound probe to examine the patient’s uterus and ovaries.

Generally, transvaginal ultrasound allows for a clear diagnosis, however, some cases may require additional testing. One of those tests is the patient’s hormonal profile, for which a blood sample is taken.

Male initial fertility tests focus on semen analysis, a test called spermiogram. This test is performed to study the concentration, motility and morphology of sperm of a male semen sample which can affect its ability to fertilize the egg and, thus, achieving pregnancy.


Is there a possibility of multiple pregnancies with fertility treatments?

There is a risk of having a multiple pregnancy as a result of fertility treatments, particularly when the patient is undergoing ovulatory stimulation or going through an in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure, in which more than one embryo is usually introduced back to the patient’s uterus in order to increase her pregnancy probabilities.

However, thanks to the extensive experience of our IVF specialists, at Ingenes we have developed a series of advanced embryo selection techniques that allow us to reduce the number of transferred embryos necessary to achieve pregnancy, consequently minimizing the risk of multiple pregnancies.

Since many of the couples who visit us wish to have twins, it is important to understand that when following a specialist’s advice and taking the necessary care measures, a twin pregnancy can have little to no complications.


Is there an age limit to treat a patient with fertility problems?

At Ingenes we do not put an age limit to our patients. The clinical findings of a first diagnostic appointment are carefully analyzed according to the circumstances of every patient to create a treatment plan that offers the greatest probability of achieving pregnancy.


If I am undergoing a fertility treatment, can I choose the gender of the baby?

There is no flawless method to choose a baby's gender. However, success rates of sperm separation methods in which sperm containing X chromosomes are separated from those containing Y chromosomes are up to 93 percent for girls and 83 percent if you want to have a boy.

In accordance with our ethics policies, at Ingenes we practice gender selection to prevent transmission of gender-related congenital diseases or family balancing when all of the patient’s children have the same gender, through our proprietary technique Eligender, as well as PGT-A.

How much time you should consider in a visit to our center?

Depending on the treatment, patients must attend the center. The range of stay can vary, between five days, 10 days, and up to 20 days.

In case of having an embryo transfer, at least 15 days may be considered, and if you have acquired any of the additional services such as PGT-A, you should consider up to 20 days.

We will keep in touch with you by e-mail and mobile to discuss the progress of your treatment and to answer any queries that may arise.
