Fertlity treatments in Switzerland
Since 1st September 2017, Switzerland possesses some of the most progressive reproductive-medicinal laws in Europe, with many benefits to those seeking to start a family.
Due to these laws, in Switzerland it is now possible to:
- Observe up to 12 fertilized eggs outside of the body before implantation, for a period of 5 consecutive days, and to selectively insert the ones that have developed during this time into the uterus.
- Exclusively insert embryos with a normal number of chromosomes into the womb via preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). Embryos with chromosomal disorders can be pre-emptively excluded and only embryos with a normal number of chromosomes are implanted into the uterus. This can be done through placental examination (trophectoderm) on the fifth day after fertilization without interfering on the embryo itself.
These therapies significantly increase the probability of pregnancy and of having a child per embryo transfer.
