Dear friends,

You wish to create your own family, but there are conception delays for different reasons. Many couples find that this is the beginning of the path to achieve their objective, which is to create their own family. A large number of couples currently obtain the desired result with the help of assisted reproduction. In a large number of cases, all it takes is medical advice, better planning and, in many cases, the detailed investigation of single problems. There are many different reasons for infertility, therefore, the experts’ advice is the first right move for subsequent decisions

What you should know is that you are not alone. Recent data show that over 300,000 couples have infertility issues and are unable to have a child either due to health reasons or due to anxiety in daily life. In our country, one out of twenty children is born using an assisted reproduction method, i.e. 5% of annual births. It is particularly encouraging that new therapeutic techniques and modern pharmaceutical support are currently applied to provide more safety in assisted reproduction methods and achieve better and successful pregnancy outcomes.

Moreover, IVF and foetal development techniques have been largely developed to enable expert scientists, gynecologists, and embryologists to successfully treat the most challenging cases, thus contributing to the birth of approx. 5,000 children annually from approx. 12,000 IVF cycles realized annually.

Information material on the reasons for and the diagnosis of infertility, the methods and techniques followed in IVF, as well as more expert and modern therapeutic techniques such as: FISH – Fluorescence In situ Hybridization, GIFΤ – Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer, PGD – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, Nuclear Cell Mapping etc, providing new options in IVF, may be found at our webpage. Among others you will find information on Surrogate Mothers, the Egg & Embryo Donation Programme, the current Legislation, as well as updates on developments in IVF. Furthermore, site visitors may contact us and get answers to their key concerns.

The expert scientific staff at emBIO Assisted Reproduction Unit and myself are at your disposal on a daily basis to provide information on infertility issues and answer your questions regarding the process to be followed on an individual basis, as well as frequent questions couples have such as potential risks, any adverse events, success rates etc.

During the session at emBIO, we will thoroughly discuss the required tests so that based on their results we will select the assisted reproduction method most suited for your case together.

Being aware that the decision and the IVF process is a particularly significant and delicate issue, we support all couples in need of our help in all possible ways. Our objective is to help you make your dream of having a healthy and happy family come true.
