  • Sanitas Assisted Reproduction


    We put at your disposal the latest in Assisted Reproduction techniques, in the most advanced centers and by the hand of highly prestigious specialists.

    Assisted Reproduction is used when the collaboration of a specialized reproduction biology laboratory is necessary, where the ovules and / or sperm are treated to improve their fertilizing capacity and the obtained embryos, cultivated to improve their implantation capacity.

    With Sanitas, thousands of couples and women have achieved a pregnancy with our assisted reproduction treatments.

    First free evaluation consultation without commitment.

    It is not necessary to have a Sanitas policy, or hire it to access this service.


    Infertility is a common problem, affecting approximately 15% of couples. In most cases it is possible to achieve a pregnancy by choosing the most appropriate technique for each patient or specific case, after having carried out a rigorous diagnostic process.

    These problems can be solved:

    If this does not work, assisted reproduction is resorted to. Some of the most common assisted reproduction techniques are:


    Artificial insemination is a relatively simple assisted reproduction technique, in which sperm previously prepared in the laboratory are placed in the fallopian tubes by a special device. This procedure increases the chances of getting a pregnancy and can be done repeatedly without problem.

    It is one of the fastest and least invasive techniques that exist today, which is why it is usually used as the first treatment option for new cases of infertility.

    In some cases, insemination may be required to be performed from a donor sperm sample (cases of male factor or women without male partner). In these cases, Sanitas makes available to the patients who need it the Sperm Bank service.

    In what cases is artificial insemination indicated?

    This treatment is recommended when:

    How is artificial insemination done?

    Artificial insemination is a simple procedure that consists of different phases:


    In vitro fertilization-IVF is a therapeutic procedure of assisted reproduction in which fertilization (union of the ovum with a sperm) is carried out in a specialized laboratory, instead of in the fallopian tubes. Then, the embryos obtained with this system are implanted in the uterus of the patient. The objective is to correct the reproductive problems of a couple.

    In which cases is in vitro fertilization (IVF) indicated?

    This treatment is indicated mainly when:

    How is in vitro fertilization (IVF)?

    The IVF procedure is carried out in several steps:

    In many of the IVF treatments the oocyte insemination procedure is carried out by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). This technique allows to introduce a sperm directly into each ovule through microinjection to facilitate fertilization, significantly improving success rates.


    When it is not possible to use those of the couple, donation is used by third parties, specifically selected and medically controlled. The donors included in the egg donation programs are always previously submitted to a medical examination, including the history of their personal and family history to detect the possible risk of inherited congenital or communicable infectious diseases that may give rise to serious risk. for possible offspring.

    Once the donor is admitted, she will have to undergo a hormonal treatment of ovarian stimulation to try to achieve the production of multiple follicles that allow the collection of a considerable number of ovules. The ovules are extracted from the ovaries of the woman by puncturing the follicles. This intervention is controlled by ultrasound and is usually performed under anesthesia.

    The ovules are then prepared and classified in the laboratory. Prior to the puncture, the donor must enter the center and remain there for as long as the gynecologist on duty considers appropriate, usually about 6 hours after the puncture.


    Nowadays, thanks to advances in reproductive medicine, it is possible to freeze the oocytes of a young patient, in order to later use them in assisted reproduction treatments when the patient considers it more appropriate. The main reasons for vitrifying the oocytes are usually related to the desire to delay motherhood for personal or professional reasons, or because the patient must undergo oncological treatment, which in some cases can atrophy the ovaries, putting at risk their future fertility.

    In addition to this technique of preservation of fertility, Sanitas makes available to its patients other techniques such as embryo freezing, the adoption of embryos or the freezing of sperm.
