How to prepare for the treatment

There are a few preparations you must have made before insemination at Diers’ Klinik can begin. These help to increase your chances of achieving pregnancy - and we need the documentation before we are allowed to inseminate you.

Before insemination, have your GP run the following tests for you:

- HIV test
- Hepatitis B+C
- Chlamydia - cervix swab or urine test (if you are under 30)

Documentation for these tests must be provided before we are allowed to inseminate you. 

When visiting your GP, we recommend that you also order the following tests:

- Cervix smear
- Test for rubella antibodies
- Prior infections

If your uterus or felopian tubes have ever been infected - or if you have had chlamydia or gonorrhea - scar tissue may have formed in your felopian tubes, which may render the passage of both eggs and spermatozoa impossible. If this is the case, you should visit a gynecologist in order to determine whether there is clear passage through your felopian tubes. For Danish citizens with a referral from their GP, this examination is free.

It would also be advisable to have your felopian tube passage examined if you have been diagnosed with endometriosis.

Good advice
There are a number of things you can do to increase your chances of achieving pregnancy.

The Danish Health and Medicines Authority recommends a daily dose of 400 mygram folic acid when trying to achieve pregnancy. You should also strive for a healthy and varied diet. If your diet contains plenty of fruit and vegetables - a minimum of 6 pieces a day - there is no reason to use other food supplements while trying to achieve pregnancy.

Some other good advice

- Smoking substantially decreases fertility and increases the risk of miscarriages. Therefore, you should quit smoking before your insemination.

- The Danish Health and Medicines Authority recommends that you do not consume alcohol during pregnancy or while trying to achieve pregnancy.

- There is some disagreement as to whether coffee and caffeine ingestion affects fertility. Studies come to different conclusions. To be on the safe side, you should try not to ingest more than 200mg of caffeine a day. And please note that the caffeine content of different coffees may vary.

- Being overweight also affects fertility. Adipose tissue causes excess production of male sex hormones, which will disturb hormone balance. It is commonly held that a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27 or above may affect fertility. BMI is calculated like this: Your weight in kilograms divided by your height in metres squared. So if you are 1,70m tall and weigh 65kg, the calculation will look like this: 65/(1,70x1,70) = 22,49 BMI. If your fertility is affected, this will be reflected in a long menstrual cycle or other symptoms. Many women have high BMIs without any adverse effects to their fertility.
