The Hospital Quirónsalud Marbella account from this Tuesday in its portfolio of services with a new agenda, the one of the Assisted Reproduction consultation.
“This initiative has been taken in order to offer the possibility of access to fertility treatments for patients at the marbellí hospital who trust us”, explained the head of the Assisted Reproduction Unit, the gynecologist Marta García Sánchez.
The new consultation, they have indicated in a statement, is linked to the Assisted Reproduction Unit of the Hospital Quirónsalud Málaga “which is the reference center of the province in the field of fertility”.
“The idea is that the patients of Marbella obtain in the Marbella health center a professional guidance, access to individualized treatment, and benefit from monitoring the process with their trusted team of obstetricians and gynecologists. In addition, with the guarantee of being backed by a team of prestigious specialists of the first level “, he has underlined the Head of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Service, Dr. Isabel Maria Blanco Herráez.
In this regard, the message that is transmitted to those who want to start a family project “has a positive tone endorsed by the success figures of fertility techniques“.
“Most of the women and couples who decide to bet on motherhood reach that personal goal. Our statistics place the success rate around 70/80% of cases. That yes, it is important to underline that these positive figures are always achieved when the instructions of the doctors are persisted and respected throughout the treatment”, assured García Sánchez.
In relation to the patient of Assisted Reproduction, Dr. Marta García Sánchez has assured that the profiles are very diverse. “Couples come to our consultation who have spent years trying to achieve their desire to expand their family naturally, but that baby does not arrive. There is also a significant percentage of women who choose to start their solo motherhood project and couples made up of women of the same sex “, has detailed.
Finally, he added, “there is a segment that is having more and more presence. They are couples who have been formed after a sterilization process (vasectomy or tubal blockage) performed during a previous relationship and, now, they are living a new stage of their life in which that desire to have children flourishes again, “he specifies.
When talking about motherhood today the woman’s personal calendar does not correspond to the biological calendar. There has been a profound change in women’s mentality regarding her lifestyle and personal project.
“Today’s woman is a more cultured woman, has more training and she postpones motherhood because she prioritizes her education and her professional career. However, we are not biologically configured to delay childbearing and we see that the possibility of success of becoming pregnant decreases drastically because the chances that a woman has to conceive naturally diminishes as she gets older, in the same way that the quality and number of ovules she has”, she pointed out.
He also added that “the Fertility drops drastically with age, we have a rate of 50% in couples under 30 and less than 10% in women over 40. A figure that drops to 0 in women over 46. Hence the importance of the woman having this information before organizing her vital agenda “.
43 years ago the first In Vitro Fertilization baby in the world was born and 38 years ago the first in Spain. As the person in charge of the Assisted Reproduction Unit at Hospital Quirónsalud Marbella underlines, “technically much has evolved, scientific progress has been made and succeeded in simplifying fertility treatments. Nowadays the risks are practically non-existent for women and fertility treatment can be carried out without this influencing her routine “.
