After the Covid-19 restrictions were lifted, the number of patients conducting IVF treatments has increased significantly.
In addition to the modern facilities and personalised care offered by Ochoa’s IVF team, PCR tests are available for anyone undergoing treatment in order to ensure their safety.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has described infertility as a disease of the reproductive system, whereby pregnancy is impeded after one year or more of unprotected intercourse.
Coinciding with European Fertility Week, we wish to raise awareness on this health issue that affects 17% of couples of childbearing age – approximately 800,000 in Spain.
Since its opening in 2015, Ochoa’s IVF department has helped hundreds of women to achieve their dream of becoming mothers via the following reproductive treatments:
- Artificial insemination
- In vitro fertilisation
- Fertility preservation (male and female)
- Egg donation
- Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis
- Semen bank
- Genetic Matching
The work done in Marbella today by IVF Ochoa is more important than ever, as infertility problems are becoming more widespread. The main reason for the increase in fertility issues is the delay of motherhood beyond the age of 35. Over the years, women lose the capacity to generate a sufficient number of eggs, and their quality also decreases.
Other causes that may cause infertility:
- Emotional factors
- Previous pathologies
- Constant exposure to heat sources
- Genetic diseases
- Alcohol and tobacco use
Far from being immobilised, Ochoa’s IVF department has been strengthened after the pandemic restrictions. Two new doctors and an embryologist have been added to the fertility team, so patients may continue to receive the best medical service and professional support during such a special moment in their lives.
