Covid vaccination and fertility treatment

We refer to the Danish Health Authority recommendations regarding pregnancy and vaccination.
Couples planning pregnancy or fertility treatment are advised to accept vaccination offers regardless of planned pregnancy or started fertility treatment. This applies to both the person who wants pregnancy and the partner.

We follow the Danish Health and Medicines Authority's recommendations.

How we take care of each other:

  • Please enter the clinic on time, and not before. In this way, we reduce the number of people at the reception.
  • We have set up hand alcohol at the clinic and we ask you to spray your hands on arrival
  • The staff does not shake hands
  • Keep your distance in the waiting room and position yourself as far away as possible from the other people present
  • We encourage you to come to your appointments alone, and let any partner wait outside the clinic - except if you are going for egg retrieval, egg laying and pregnancy scan.
  • We encourage your lovely children not to come to the clinic

FAQ Covid-19 and fertility treatment:

If you become pregnant with iui and you experience symptoms of Corona soon after, should you be worried about losing the fetus? And what extra precautions should you take?

Answer: At present, most experts believe that a corona virus infection in pregnant women probably does not pose a risk of birth defects. You cannot be entirely sure until you can later see how it actually relates to children born by women who have been infected with coronavirus during pregnancy. If signs of corona virus infection occur during pregnancy, you should talk to your GP or birth center about whether there are any special examinations or other things that the health authorities recommend. If you get high fever while pregnant (over 39ºC) due to an infection, there may be an increased risk of miscarriage.
