Genetische Beratung zum Kinderwunsch

Unintentionally childless

Fertility and genetics are closely linked, as a person’s genetic predisposition can have a major impact on their fertility. Some genetic disorders can lead to infertility, while other genetic variations, such as certain gene variants, can increase the likelihood of miscarriage or chromosomal abnormalities.

In addition, genetic factors can also affect the quality of eggs and sperm, which can lead to problems with fertilization or embryo development. It is important to note that not all fertility problems are due to genetic causes, as environmental factors, lifestyle and age-related changes can also play a role. 

Nevertheless, genetic counseling and diagnosis is an important part of the investigation of fertility problems, as it can help to identify the causes and take appropriate measures to increase the chances of a successful pregnancy. 

Please note that women who are already pregnant cannot come to us for counseling.
