When a heterosexual couple has tried to conceive for more than 1 year without results, it is defined as involuntary infertility. Region Stockholm offers a fertility investigation which you can have done at Stockholm IVF. Some of the basic requirements for county council treatment for heterosexual couples are that you have been sexually active for at least 1 year without becoming pregnant, that you have been together for 2 years and that you live together. You can't have a child in common. The woman who will be carrying the child must be younger than 40 years of age and the man must be younger than 56 years of age. If you live in a same-sex relationship or are applying as a single person, please read the basic requirements for county-funded treatment here.
If you do not meet the county council’s requirements, self-payment of
treatment may be an option. Read more about it here under private consultation.
If the woman who wishes to become pregnant is over 35 years of age and has either damaged Fallopian tubes (oviducts), endometriosis, complications following abdominal surgery, long intervals between periods, or difficulty determining ovulation, there may be reason to seek help earlier (after 6 months). If you as a man have had an injury or infection of the testicle or any disease that can damage sperm production, it may also be a reason to seek help earlier.
Our goal is for the fertility investigation to be completed within 1-2 months following the first appointment.
