Non-binding and confidential initial consultation

Fertility consultation

We know that the path to the child you long for is sometimes challenging. We are happy to be at your side. Make an appointment to clarify your questions and discuss individual solutions together. Your desire to have children is our concern.

Fertility preservation (social freezing / medical freezing)

Would you like to have a child, but this is not possible at this time for professional or personal reasons? Fertility decreases with age, especially in women. If you are currently unable or unwilling to have children for personal reasons, fertility preservation therapy (known as social freezing) may be a sensible option. In this case, eggs are retrieved from women, stored for a certain period of time and used at a later date to realise the desire to have children. In men, a sperm sample is frozen, which can also be used at a later date to achieve a pregnancy.

In certain situations, it may be necessary to carry out the above-mentioned treatments not only for purely personal reasons but also for medical reasons (medical freezing). This may be the case, for example, in the presence of a malignant disease whose treatment impairs fertility. If egg or sperm cells are removed prior to treatment, it is still possible to realise the desire to have children in the event of subsequent infertility.

Gynaecological hormonal disorders

Do you suffer from hormonal complaints, such as an irregular menstrual cycle, and would you like to clarify the causes? In our consultation hours, we offer you expert advice on the following hormonal disorders:

  • Cycle and bleeding disorders
  • Premenstrual syndrome and cycle-related complaints
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Androgenisation symptoms (e.g. acne, hormonally induced hair loss)
  • Optimisation of contraceptives (such as the pill and IUD)


Are you suffering from hot flushes and wondering whether this is a sign of the menopause? In our consultation hours, we offer you investigations and therapies in the following areas:

  • Menopausal symptoms

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and the desire to have children

Women with PCOS often struggle to get pregnant and the desire to have children often becomes a challenging journey. But despite the obstacles, there is hope and options for women who want to fulfil their dream of getting pregnant. To gain more insight into the topic of PCOS and the desire to have children, we spoke to Dr Roland Braneti, Head of our Fertility Centre and Gynaecological Endocrinology at the Women's Clinic at Zollikerberg Hospital.

Behind the scenes of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): one of the most common but little-known hormonal disorders in women

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also known as PCO syndrome, is a common hormonal disorder that affects millions of women worldwide. According to the latest data, around 10 to 13 per cent of all women of childbearing age are affected. From irregular periods to fertility problems, PCOS can present a variety of challenges. Yet despite its prevalence, PCOS often remains a mysterious and misunderstood health problem. To separate the facts from the myths and develop a more comprehensive understanding of PCOS, we sat down with Dr Roland Braneti, MD, Head Physician of our Fertility Centre and Gynaecological Endocrinology at the Women's Clinic.
