About us

What to do if you aren't getting pregnant - advice in Basel

Waiting room - The practice of Dr. med. Erika Ocon - BaselAre you one of those couples who want a child, but the longed-for pregnancy hasn't happened yet? Does it seem as if everybody around you is getting pregnant straight away, just not you? This situation will be extremely distressing for you, but you are far from alone. Did you know that one in every seven couples in Switzerland is affected by an unfulfilled desire for a child?

We would like to stand discreetly by your side in your desire to become parents. A high level of commitment and the use of the most up-to-date medical methods are a matter of course as far as we are concerned. We can advise you in German, English, Spanish and Romanian.

If you have been trying to get pregnant for a year, it may be helpful to seek advice from a specialist team about the investigations that might be sensible in your own personal situation. Depending on what we find, even minor corrective measures may allow the longed-for pregnancy to happen. Usually, it requires a repeated course of supportive medication. Sometimes, however, more costly treatment for fertilisation outside the female body (known as IVF or ICSI treatment) is needed in order to achieve the long yearned-for pregnancy.
