In 2017, the total number of treatment cycles undertaken at ReproGenesis was 1331. 660 egg donation cycles were completed and 671 IVF cycles using own eggs.

Individuality is what they believe defines ReproGenesis. To help patients, the clinic offers professional acupuncture before and after embryo transfer.
The clinic mainly specialises in egg and sperm donation.

Cost of Treatments
The cost of egg donation is advertised as a very reasonable 5000 Euros. This includes:
- treatment protocol
- selection of the donor
- partner’s sperm analysis on the day of donated eggs
- stimulating medications for the donor
- monitoring of the donor’s IVF cycle
- donor’s egg collection
- fertilisation of all mature eggs via ICSI
- extended embryo cultivation
- assisted hatching and embryo transfer + EmbryoGlue
- ultrasound exam of the recipient
- donor’s compensation
It does not include embryo freezing. If this is required it would cost 300 Euros using the vitrification method.
Sperm freezing is extra and currently costs 300 Euros. This price includes storage for 1 year.
PICSI costs 300 Euros.
The clinic offers a shared risk program for couples who have paid for donor egg treatment and are unsuccessful and then have to have repeated cycles using fresh donor eggs or embryos.
In the shared risk program, the first treatment cycle is funded by the couple in full. If a second cycle is necessary, the couple funds the full price once again. If a third cycle if necessary, the cost of the treatment cycle is shared with the clinic. The cost of some embryological procedures (i.e. ICSI, prolonged cultivation and assisted hatching) as well as embryo monitoring are covered by ReproGenesis. The other costs are funded by the couple. This hopefully provides the best chance of being successful without incurring the full cost.
For the egg donor program the clinic guarantees a minimum of two day 5 blastocyst-stage embryos for transfer.
