The Center for Hormonal Disorders and Fertility at the University Hospital of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich offers the full range of modern diagnostic and therapeutic services in this field and is one of the largest medical facilities of this kind in Europe. The main department’s focuses include the treatment of infertility and pregnancy impairment with in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injections, blastocyst transfer, nutrition correction and the use of immunological methods. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Christian Thaler, who ranks among the top German doctors in his field of specialization, according to the Focus magazine.

To clarify the causes of infertility, the center performs hormonal testing, ultrasound, diagnostics of fallopian tube patency, laparoscopy, genetic testing, as well as a comprehensive examination of the partner. Intrauterine insemination is performed in the case of conception problems, anovulation, formation of antisperm antibodies, sperm quality decrease (namely, impaired amount, mobility and shape of the sperm cells), problems with sperm penetration into the uterus, insufficient sperm amount and infertility of unclear genesis. The procedure is conducted with the use of a thin soft plastic catheter. In vitro fertilization is offered to the patients with obstruction or incorrect placement of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, cervical problems and unsuccessful attempts of intrauterine insemination. In addition, the department performs intracytoplasmic sperm injection as an additional measure for the in vitro fertilization.

To treat chronic miscarriage due to the various causes (pathological changes in the uterus, infections, genetic defects, immunological causes, blood clotting disorders, hormonal factors), in addition to medical and surgical techniques, the center uses many effective conservative methods, such as nutrition correction, acupuncture, methods of traditional Chinese medicine, etc.
