Desire to have children
When it doesn't work out with getting pregnant, many women first see the cause in themselves. However, the reasons for an unfulfilled desire to have children lie equally often with the woman, the man or the combination of woman and man. Around 10-15 percent of Swiss couples have difficulties in fulfilling their desire to have children. In the following videos, Andrea Rinderknecht and Prof. Dr. Christian Breymann discuss some of the issues surrounding the desire to have children.
The desire to have children - the new average age #1
Andrea Rinderknecht asks Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann about women's desire to have children and the new average age. Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann reports on the new, higher average age for women's desire to have children and the equally new dark figure of young women who cannot have children for many reasons and have to learn to deal with the corresponding pressure of expectations.
Desire to have children - many reasons for infertility #2
Andrea Rinderknecht with Prof. Dr. Med. Christian Breymann about the importance of detailed information for young couples. Because infertility is virtually a jigsaw puzzle of possible factors, the detailed information with the appropriate sensitivity of young couples - i.e. woman and man in the same boat - is of particular importance. Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann explains the multitude of possible anatomical and hormonal reasons for the unfulfilled desire to have children - from the role of the thyroid gland to the vitamin and mineral balance as well as the sperm quality of the man.
Desire for children - the highly individual status determination #3
Andrea Rinderknecht with Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann about the importance of a detailed diagnosis to substantiate infertility. Only when it has been determined exactly which small building blocks of anatomical and hormonal reasons are responsible for the unfulfilled desire to have children in total, can specific fertility treatments or alternative fertilisation methods be discussed. Prof. Dr. Med. Christian Breymann on the variety of methods and possible approaches - from surgical interventions to high-dose mineral or vitamin administration in men and women - to optimise the status of natural fertility.
Desire for children - The different types of artificial insemination #4
Andrea Rinderknecht with Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann about the two basic tracks of artificial insemination. The gynaecologist and obstetrician Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann on the two tracks of artificial insemination. The so-called interuterine insemination, for which ovulation is controlled and optimised sperm is specifically combined with the egg cell in the uterus. And the "in vitro" measures, for which the egg is brought together with sperm in the test tube and transferred to the uterus as an embryo at different later times.
Desire for children - the fulfilment with birth #5
Andrea Rinderknecht with Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann about the importance of intensive support during pregnancy. Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann on the importance of individual care - especially after artificial insemination. For the perinatal physician and obstetrician, the desire to have a child is only fulfilled when the baby is born. During the nine months of pregnancy, the microenvironment and environment for the embryo can again be significantly optimised through targeted treatment methods, vitamin supplements and nutrient improvement through hormones or minerals.
Unfulfilled desire to have children - thematisation, pressure and dynamics #6
Andrea Rinderknecht with Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann about the stigmatisation of infertility in our society. Because an unfulfilled desire to have children is usually based on the most complex of problems, simply verbalising it is a learning step for young couples. Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann on the special pressure young women feel towards their partner, within the family and circle of friends, as well as the pride young men feel when it is up to them. About the possible dynamics in a relationship and the challenges of communication so that it does not come to a break-up.
