You can prepare from home
Before you begin a treatment at Diers Klinik, there are a few preparations you need to conduct.
We are allowed to treat women until their 46th birthday.
As a starting point, we offer treatment to all women and we have, as one of the few clinics in Denmark, no BMI limit. Even if you are overweight, you can still start treatment without having to lose weight first.
The following tests need to be done before starting treatment:
- HIV 1 & 2 (Anti-HIV 1,2)
- Hepatitis B (HBs Ag og Anti-HBc)
- Hepatitis C (Anti-HCV Ab)
The following tests are recommended to be taken before starting treatment:
- Chlamydia (If you are younger than 30 years of age)
- Smear test (If this has not been done within the last 12 months)
- If you have not been vaccinated for Rubella, you should be tested for antibodies against Rubella
You can make an appointment with your own doctor, who can take the necessary blood test.
We do not expect that all tests have been started or finished before you book an appointment for a non-committal consultation.
Earlier infections of the uterus
Earlier infections can affect and decrease the chances of becoming pregnant.
If you have had an infection in the uterus or fallopian tubes, or if you have had chlamydia or gonorrhea, scar tissue could possibly have formed in the fallopian tubes, which would make the passage of both egg and sperm cells impossible.
If this is the case for you, you should make an appointment with a gynaecologist for an examination to find out whether there is free passage in your fallopian tubes. If there is no free passage in your fallopian tubes, insemination treatment will not be successful, and you should therefore consider other treatment options as for example In Vitro Fertilisation.
If you have been diagnosed with Endometriosis, it would also be a good idea to have the passage in your fallopian tubes examined before starting any treatment.
