Infertility treatment

We are proud to say that in Klinika Galena we have had a chance to congratulate many happy parents on their babies. It has been possible due to individual approach of the Galena team to every couple and selection of adequate and most effective stimulation methods in infertility treatment.

Ultrasound ovulation monitoring

We offer a detailed ultrasound diagnostics of ovulation and menstrual cycle with the use of the leading edge 3D and 4D ultrasound equipment.

Galena has the state-of-the-art ultrasound VOLUSON E8 Expert with the BT13 software, with a unique function of an automatic follicular measurement – SonoAVCfollicle (Sono-based Automated Volume Count follicle). The device allows to automatically calculate the volume and average sizes of all ovarian follicles which increases accuracy of the test even further. Precise measurement of the size and volume of follicles combined with hormonal tests forms the basis for a safe and effective stimulation.

Diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy

Currently hysteroscopy has become a routine examination in infertility diagnostics. Hysteroscopy is an endoscopic gynaecological procedure used in the case of such problems as infertility, recurrent miscarriage, abnormal uterine bleeding, endometrium. Hysteroscopy may be used both for diagnosis and treatment. The procedure allows a visual inspection of the uterine cavity and cervical canal as well as uterine openings of fallopian tubes. It also makes it possible to examine the uterus for the presence of any adhesions, polyps or fibroids. It is also an invaluable method used in infertility treatment.

Insemination

Infertile couples who would like to undergo the insemination procedure have a consultation with Dr Bogdan Szymala the purpose of which is to choose the procedure and stimulation that will be best and most effective in the given case.

The procedure we perform most frequently is intrauterine insemination. Intrauterine insemination is the “last stop” and the last hope for the longed-for baby before attempting the in vitro method. Intrauterine insemination consists in introduction of carefully prepared sperm directly into the uterus. The sperm sample is prepared in a special way in a process called semen preparation which consists in separating viable sperm cells capable of fertilisation in the fallopian tube at the moment the egg cell is released.

Bearing in mind the fact that having a baby without interference with nature and without employing “in vitro” methods is not always possible, we work with the best fertilisation centres in Poland to prepare our patients for the insemination outside the body.

We cooperate with the infertility clinic Centrum Leczenia Niepłodności “Parens” in Kraków which implements the In Vitro Fertilisation Treatment programme. The couples who qualify for the programme are provided with continuous diagnostics and treatment as well as with a possibility of having the in vitro procedure subsidised from public funds.

Our availability – 7 days a week – is our chief asset.
