Intrauterine insemination :  IAC, IAD.       

In vitro fertilization (IVF) :  classic, ICSI.   


Clinical Reproductive Techniques (CRT) have been used in the clinic since 1997. Dr. Gwét-Bell, along with a team of 3 gynaecologists and 2 biologists, took part in the birth of Tommy, the first baby born by IVF in Central Africa on the 14th of April, 1998.


Ultimate options


Gift of ovocytes - With no response to ovarian stimulation (weak reaction, early menopause,...), it is possible to resort to the gift of ovocytes under rigorous conditions.

Assistance on Adoption - The clinic provides administrative information and helps the couples assemble their application to the Ministry of Social Affairs.








Artificial insemination concerns those patients who have at least a permeable horn and whose partner presents seminal insufficiencies; it is also used for infertilities of unknown origin.


In vitro fertilization (IVF) concerns especially those patients presenting a tubular pathology (tubular stenosis), failures of IAC, male and female causes.


Intra Cytoplasmic Seminal Injection (ICSI) is primarily indicated for very pathological spermograms and failures of IVF. Freezing is done for the preservation of sperm and spare embryos.


Extended embryo culture allows for the transfer of D5 and D6 embryos.


The freezing of embryos makes possible the conservation of overnumerous embryos or the prevention of serious complications such as ovarian hyperstimulation (OHSS). The freezing technique practiced is vitrification.


Success rate of CRT depends on the age of patient and the presence of associated pothologies such as fibroids.


In our center the pregnancy rate for patients under 36 years of age is now 45%.


Success rate in case of eggs donations varies between 55 and 60%.
