With us you are in safe hands
If you desire to have Children
Having children is one of the most important, most natural, and most beautiful fundamental decisions in the life of a human being. To evaluate the chances of having a child and prepare well for pregnancy, women are always in safe hands at the office of their medical specialist.
At PURE GYN – your gynaecologists in 1170 Vienna – you will receive competent help if you desire children.
Preparatory Steps if you Desire Children
Evaluation of your Vaccinations
Infectious diseases that previously belonged to the category of typical children’s diseases can become very dangerous during pregnancy. In case of a rubella infection, the germs are transmitted through the placenta to the unborn child. Depending on the phase of pregnancy, this may cause a miscarriage or severe physical malformations in the unborn child. This risk can be nearly ruled out by adequate immunisation.
Vaccinations before pregnancy: rubella and chicken pox.
A varicella or chicken pox infection is particularly dangerous during pregnancy, especially when it occurs shortly before the child’s birth. If the mother develops the disease five days before or within two days after the delivery, the child is faced with the risk of a very severe course of disease.
Exclusion of sexually transmitted diseases
An STD screening (link) permits the exclusion or early treatment of severe infectious diseases at an early point in time. Thus you reduce the risk of severe complications during pregnancy and damage to the infant due to chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, hepatitis, or HIV.

The appropriate time point
Monitoring the menstrual cycle
During the process of monitoring, a woman’s menstrual cycle is carefully surveyed. This can be registered quite easily nowadays with an app. In addition, we have urine tests (LH test) which permit a definite statement as to whether and when an ovulation has occurred in the respective cycle.
Stay calm, but do not leave everything to chance.
Your gynaecologist will help you to understand your menstrual cycle well and find the appropriate time point.
Diagnosis of Sterility
If no pregnancy has occurred after a year despite regular sexual intercourse, you should consider a medical investigation: the so-called sterility investigation or sterility diagnosis.
How do I find out whether I am fertile?
Our diagnostic approach includes several steps, detailed in the following, starting with the least invasive procedure:
- Investigation of the ovaries and the uterus by means of 3D transvaginal ultrasound
- Semen analysis
- Investigation of the uterus
- Investigation of the fallopian tubes
Gynaecological Ultrasound Investigation
The diagnosis of sterility is greatly aided by the advantages of state-of-the-art medical 3D ultrasound machines.
At PURE GYN we are proud to be one of the few gynaecological centres in Vienna to offer this technology at a medical office providing services covered by the statutory health fund.
- Investigation of the ovaries
The investigation of the ovaries includes, in addition to a detailed medical history of the menstrual cycle, diagnostic imaging and a hormone investigation.
As part of the imaging investigation, we perform a detailed ultrasound examination including 3D procedures.
Determination of AMH (Anti-Müllerian Hormone)
In addition to the obtaining a woman’s general hormone status, we recommend the measurement of AMH as part of the clarification of sterility.
Preparation for IVF
In combination with AFC (antral follicle count), testing for the anti-Müllerian hormone is regarded as an accepted diagnostic parameter for the purpose of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) at the majority of the IVF institutes.
How fertile are we?
Before we perform invasive diagnostic investigations in a woman, the “male factor” must be addressed and reviewed.
- Obtaining a Semen Analysis
The semen analysis serves to exclude the male factor in sterility diagnosis and can be performed at the same time as the above mentioned investigation of ovarian function in a woman. In any case, the semen analysis must be performed before starting invasive investigations in the woman.
- Investigation of the Uterus
In addition to the diagnosis of malformations by 3D ultrasound, chronic inflammatory processes in the endometrium (lining of the uterus) should be ruled out. These processes are quite frequently devoid of symptoms and prevent implantation of the embryo.
- Gynaecological Investigation of the Fallopian Tubes
If a woman has a disorder of the fallopian tubes, the sperm and the ovum (egg) cannot fuse with each other naturally. In these cases, one usually finds a constriction or obstruction of one or both fallopian tubes.
