Institute

The Assisted Reproduction Unit QuirónSalud-Ginemed Huelva has a multidisciplinary team of gynecologists, andrologists, embryologists and nurses; with maximum assurance, it guarantees quality human equipment, technological equipment, and facilities, which are all important to the integral attention of the fertility.

In addition, the Unit has made its Laboratory with glass walls with the aim of bringing the work of the Laboratory closer to the patient, highlighting Transparency and Quality in all its processes, but also making the embryo-patient relationship more human.

Our results (audited and published on the website of the Spanish Fertility Society) by specialists in cases of high complexity (implantation failures and repeat abortions) are above the average, in many treatments, with more than 80% of pregnancies in one cycle (fresh + vitrified).

All of our patients are attended by native assisted human reproduction coordinators of English, French, Italian, Arabic, German, Chinese, etc., who are the link between the patient and her gynecologist, and who accompany and support them throughout the way.

Laboratory techniques

We put all our medicine, science, and heart in this process to make your dream come true. We want to help thousands of babies around the world be born.

  • Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD). Set of tests that we perform on the embryo before transferring it to the maternal womb to make sure it does not suffer a specific genetic alteration. We study the DNA of the embryos and select those free of chromosomal anomalies and/or genetic mutations.
  • Genetic Compatibility Test (Genetic Matching). The Genetic Compatibility Test is an innovative technique that is performed through a blood test administered to the couple. It allows us to avoid the transmission of hundreds of genetic diseases by studying the genetic compatibility of the couple.
  • Time Lapse-Geri. The Geri incubator is the latest and most advanced embryo monitoring technology. Its independent modules provide embryos with an individual and unchanged incubation environment, which will help us to choose single embryo transfers, increase pregnancy rates, and reduce the possibility of a multiple pregnancy.
    This Time Lapse system incorporates a high-resolution camera that allows constant observation and assessment of our embryos in the laboratory. This continuous monitoring gives us detailed and complete information of its evolution, allowing a personalized control of the embryos and later, a better embryonic selection.
  • Fertile Chip. It is a device that allows the selection of sperm with better motility. It is a support that consists of two cameras connected through a microfluidic channel. The semen is deposited directly in the entrance chamber and half an hour later, the spermatozoa that have managed to reach the collection chamber are selected.
    The use of this device is to indicate seminal samples with high DNA fragmentation, an alteration that can cause continued failures in the techniques of assisted human reproduction and repeated abortions.
  • ICSI. It consists of the introduction of the sperm into the ovule with the help of a microneedle, unlike the classic fertilization in which the egg is left in special conditions with thousands of sperm to help one reach and fertilize it.
  • IMSI. Microinjection technique of selecting spermatozoids with a high magnification microscope based on morphology. Thus, we can detect morphological alterations that are not seen when we use ICSI. This in turn improves the results when sperm morphology is an important factor.
  • MACS. Sperm selection technique that mediates magnetic procedures to separate sperm with markers of apoptosis (programmed cell death), thus allowing an improvement in success rates for those couples with a relevant male factor.
  • Vitrification. The vitrification consists of the freezing of ovules or embryos in an instantaneous way which prevents the formation of ice crystals. This eliminates the risk of damaging cellular structures when they thaw. This technique has allowed us to preserve ova and embryos for a later use with a guaranteed survival of approximately 100%.

Treatments

From the first visit, we take care of getting to know you, understand you, and find the ideal treatment that will allow you to fulfill your dream.

  • In Vitro Fertilization (with partner semen). They are techniques of assisted reproduction in which the fertilization of the ovum by the spermatozoon is carried out in the laboratory (in vitro) and not inside the body of the woman.
    They require a stimulation of the ovaries to obtain several ovules that we will extract by means of ovarian puncture and that, once fertilized in the laboratory, are deposited in the maternal uterus to achieve a pregnancy.
  • In Vitro Fertilization (with donor sperm). They are techniques of assisted reproduction in which the fertilization of the ovum by the spermatozoon is carried out in the laboratory (in vitro) and not inside the body of the woman. They require a stimulation of the ovaries to obtain several ovules that we will extract by means of ovarian puncture and that, once fertilized in the laboratory, are deposited in the maternal uterus to achieve a pregnancy. The sperm we use comes from a semen bank.
  • In Vitro Fertilization in natural cycle (without hormones). This treatment is done by obtaining the ovules through respecting the natural cycle of the woman. This allows us to scarcely use hormonal medication, thus significantly reducing costs and eliminating the risk of multiple pregnancy.
  • In Vitro Fertilization with double stimulation.
  • Double donation (of semen and ovules). It consists of an in vitro fertilization treatment (IVF-ICSI) with oocytes and donor semen. The embryos obtained are deposited inside the uterus in order to implant and give rise to a pregnancy.
  • Ovodonation. It consists of an in vitro fertilization treatment (IVF-ICSI) with donor eggs. The embryos obtained are deposited inside the uterus in order to implant and give rise to a pregnancy.
  • Embryo donation. It is a treatment in which we transfer embryos, donated by another woman or couple, into the recipient woman. The donated embryos come from those who have already completed their reproductive desires, but have vitrified embryos left over; a treatment that arose as a result of previous treatments related to Assisted Reproduction. These embryos, according to the current legislation, can be donated to other women or couples in order to give them the opportunity to have a child.
  • ROPA (Receiving Couple's Ovules). It is a technique of assisted reproduction that we perform in homoparental couples. This technique allows both women to participate in the achievement of the pregnancy. One of them provides the ovules. The other receives the embryos and carries out the pregnancy and delivery. The fertilization of the couple’s ovules with donor sperm is done in the laboratory by sperm microinjection (ICSI).
  • Preservation of fertility.
  • Induction of Ovulation. It consists of the administration of drugs that favor follicular development and the release of ovules by the ovary. To achieve pregnancy, sexual intercourse is scheduled to coincide with ovulation.
  • Artificial insemination. It consists of the introduction of sperm from a partner or donor, previously selected and treated by concentration and training in the laboratory, inside the uterus of the woman at a time close to ovulation.
  • Psychological assistance.
