Centre for Infertility Treatment
The aim of the Centre of Infertility Treatment of the East Tallinn Central Hospital is to help find solutions to the problems of infertile couples. Our knowledge, skills and technology make it possible to use the latest methods of fertility treatment.
Infertility is defined as a situation where a couple has not developed pregnancy after at least a year of regular sexual activity. Infertility is a major social and emotional problem both for society and for the couple directly affected by it. According to various studies, the number of infertile couples in the population ranges from 15 to 20%, so the problem of infertility affects every fifth to sixth family in Estonia.
It is believed that infertility is due to the health of the woman in 1 out of 3 cases, due to the health of the man 1 out of 3 cases, and in approximately 1 out of 3 cases it is a combined infertility or the reason remains unclear. In most developed societies, the clear cause remains unknown since there are thousands of factors which affect infertility and all of them cannot be assessed.
When turning to infertility treatment, we first try to identify the reason for infertility and then a suitable treatment method can be selected.
