I. Medical treatment for infertility –hormone therapy

The costs for hormone therapy are covered by your health insurance. The aim of a hormontherapy is the stimulation of oocyte maturation and/or ovulation. This will increase the chance of conception during the natural intercourse to follow. The growth of the follicles can be stimulated with clomifen or gonadotropins (FSH, HMG). One can either wait for natural ovulation to occur or trigger ovulation with hCG (human Choriongonadotropin). Triggering ovulation has the advantage that the best time point for intercourse can be determined. The physician will call this “intercourse at the optimal time”. This therapy does not fall into the category of §27a SGB V.
