How to choose the best assisted reproduction clinic
ProcreaTec, International Fertility Clinic
When looking for an assisted reproduction clinic, a
number of factors should be taken into consideration.
When a couple has been trying to get pregnant for a year, if
the woman is under 35, or for six months if the woman is 35
or older, it is time to consult with a specialist.
Here are the factors that you should consider when deciding which fertility clinic to choose:
1. The medical team:
Infertility should be diagnosed by a specialized medical team. At ProcreaTec, we perform exhaustive fertility examinations in order to determine the cause of infertility.These tests consist of blood work and other medical exams to both members of the couple (or just the woman in case of single parenthood) in order to determine the best course of action.
In our ten years of operation, we have welcomed over 10,000 patients. We are pioneers in advanced techniques such as cryopreservation or culture to blastocyst and, at present, this has translated into above-European-average success rates.
3. Quality Control Certifications:
ProcreaTec has the ISO-9001/2015 and the UNE-179007 certifications, which guarantee and certify the quality of the treatments we offer as well as of our lab. These certifications ensure the highest standards of service for our patients.
Two EmbryoScope® incubators with time-lapse technology
We have two EmbryoScope® incubators for embryo development. The EmbryoScope® incorporates time-lapse technology, which consists of obtaining images almost every minute from the time of fertilization. It includes a camera and an image-capture system, which allows for real time observation of the embryo development process. This allows our biologists to obtain lots of information about how the embryos develp. The pictures taken by the EmbryoScope® are taken automatically every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day uninterruptedly.
5. Clinic’s Opening Hours:
We are open from 8am until 8pm Monday-Thursday and until 7pm on Fridays. We also have an emergency phone line available until 10pm on weedkays and from 10am-5pm on weekends and bank holidays.
6. Remote consultations:
We offer various options for our international patients. We offer consultations via skype and by phone.Depending on the type of treatment, you will only be required to be physically in Madrid for a limited number of days.
We have patient care assistance in Spanish, English, French, Italian and German. For this reason and because of our excellent results, patients from all over the world come to ProcreaTec to undergo fertility treatments.
8. Patient care:
Throughout an assisted reproduction treatment, there may be lots of emotional highs and lows. Our patient care team’s empathy and dedication will help you overcome moments of uncertainty. Additionally, and if it were required, we have a psychology unit available for our patients.
9. Certified Results:
Our results are audited and certified by the Spanish Fertility Society.
