Our standard ART programme included:

Around 60 per cent of all fresh ART cycles involve single embryo transfer and the twinning rate after IVF was 11 per cent and 16 per cent after ICSI.

For couples with HIV or hepatitis infections, 105 cycles of IUI or ART were carried out.

Together with the Laboratory for Reproductive Biology, the department has an extensive programme performing approx. 50 - 60 ovarian cryopreservations in young women with malignant diseases.

The unit dealing with recurrent miscarriage has an annual turnover of 150–200 patients.
