Immunologically induced infertility

It is still controversial whether female autoimmune disorders can lead to infertility. Based on recent studies, we believe that autoimmune disorders may possibly affect female fertility, even when they are otherwise not in need of treatment.

In cooperation with the transfusion physician Dr. Reichel-Fentz, we perform immunological treatments that appear to be advisable after her diagnosis.
