Dr Barbara Sonntag, Professor Frank Nawroth: Reproductive medicine of the highest order and with the best results

It’s the same all over the world: a happy couple want to have a baby but the longed-for pregnancy fails to materialise; the inability to conceive becomes an emotional strain for both partners. Reproductive medicine is a highly specialised field of medicine that makes it possible for couples to turn their dreams of being parents into reality.

At the Interdisciplinary Centre for Fertility, Endocrinology and Prenatal Medicine in Hamburg, a team of experienced and highly qualified doctors are on hand to offer advice, diagnosis and treatments for people who are having difficulties conceiving. The initial focus is on talking to the would-be parents and trying to identify potential causes in the man and the woman. To help couples to conceive, the centre’s doctors draw on many years of experience to offer the full diagnostic and therapeutic spectrum of reproductive medicine, complemented by a caring approach and the option of psychological counselling. The result of these efforts is an above-average pregnancy rate. The centre also offers tests and treatment for specific illnesses. Patients with endometriosis or cancer sufferers, for example, can be presented with solutions enabling them to preserve their fertility and conceive at a later date.

Diagnostic tests at the Fertility Centre in Hamburg

There are various means of determining why pregnancy is not occurring: in both men and women, general as well as highly specific tests are used to diagnose potential causes of infertility. For some couples, no reason can be established for the infertility, even after all tests have been carried out. Even in these cases, however, we are still able to offer an effective programme of treatment with a high chance of success. The doctor begins the treatment by talking in depth to the couple in question. Hormonal laboratory tests are carried out and, in some cases, targeted ultrasound scans as well. If necessary, these are complemented by a tubal patency test of the Fallopian tubes and by imaging of the womb – and this can all be done without anaesthetic thanks to the use of special mini cameras. As for the man, a detailed analysis of his sperm is conducted, supplemented by a physical examination, an ultrasound scan of his testes and analysis of the key laboratory parameters. Genetic tests and specialist genetic consultations are offered if relevant hereditary risks are established or if there have been multiple miscarriages. This results not only in a precise diagnosis but also in a set of findings that the centre’s team of fertility experts can then translate into a personalised programme of treatment offering the best chance of a successful pregnancy.

Fertility treatments

Assisted by a highly qualified laboratory team in accordance with the stringent quality standards of the World Health Organization and the checks carried out by the German Society for Andrology, the Centre for Endocrinology, Fertility and Prenatal Medicine offers the following treatments:

  • Ovarian stimulation with ultrasound monitoring

  • Intrauterine insemination (also with donor sperm)

  • Assisted reproduction through in vitro fertilisation (IVF) complemented by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

Supporting measures are also available that may improve the chances of success of the treatments listed for the individual couple. These include the freezing of surplus fertilised eggs (cryopreservation), assisted hatching for embryos, genetic screening of the egg cell’s polar body, the option of donor sperm treatment and comprehensive psychological counselling provided by specialist partners.

The Centre for Endocrinology, Fertility and Prenatal Medicine is easily accessible thanks to its location in the heart of Hamburg. With the help of state-of-the-art equipment and treatment procedures and an experienced team of doctors, it offers you an excellent chance of turning your desire to have children into reality.

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Deesden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.

The next big thing

Due to open in 2017, the Elbphilarmonie is a ~very~ controversial project among Hamburg's taxpayers. But its sheer originality and generous public spaces will definitely put Hamburg on the map of people who've never thought of visiting this vibrant town. The building will contain three concert halls, two hotels, apartments, shops and a public square between the base of the bulding (a former wharehouse) and the new, Gaudí-esque top. You can count on Hamburg becoming as popular with foreign travelers as it is among German visitors.
