Nordica assisted reproduction centre

In 1998, the first assisted reproduction centre in Lithuania was established in the Mother & Child Clinic that became a member to NORDICA network of assisted reproduction centres in 2005. Our centre cooperates with the main NORDICA centre in Copenhagen, Denmark. We took the opportunities to use the latest techniques and experience of the top field professionals.

  

Nordica assisted reproduction centre provides the following procedures

 

We use the state-of-the-art techniques for fertilization outside the woman’s body:

  • Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure when the appropriately prepared sperm of a spouse of a woman is injected directly into her uterus using a catheter. The procedure is performed during the natural or stimulated menstrual cycle.
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a method of assisted reproduction when during stimulated ovulation ovaries are punctured and oocytes are aspirated to laboratory dishes. The sperm of the spouse of the woman is placed to the incubator with oocytes where fertilization takes place. Fertilized eggs are left in the dish for about 48 hours and then embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus using catheter.
  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a procedure when one egg is combined with one sperm (male reproductive cell), fertilized egg is incubated for about 48 hours and then embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus using catheter.
  • Assisted hatching is performed before the embryo is transferred into uterus to facilitate its implantation.
  • Freezing and storage of embryos left after the transfer into uterus in the liquid nitrogen container, if the spouses require so.
  • Defrosting of embryos and transfer into the woman’s uterus using a special catheter.
 
Semen analysis is performed following the requirements of the World Health Organization thus ensuring flawless quality. A semen sample is produced by masturbation on-site or at home and collected to a sterile container provided by the clinic free of charge. A semen sample collected at home must be received at the laboratory within half an hour, keeping the container warm (the temperature must be close to that of the body). 
Freezing  of semen and storage in the liquid nitrogen container. Semen freezing may be the only way for a man to have his own children after chemotherapy, radiation treatment or surgical treatment of oncological disease. After the man recovers, his defrosted semen may be used to fertilize his partner using IUI, IVF or ICSI.
TESA (testicular sperm aspiration (extraction)) is the procedure when a special needle is used to obtain vas deferens from testicles which are further used for extraction of spermatozoa. TESA may be accomplished for diagnostic purposes, when spermatozoa have not been found during the sperm test, or artificial insemination procedure may be accomplished, i.e. ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), with spermatozoa obtained during the TESA procedure.
