Term

Explanation of term

Abortus imminens

Impending miscarriage. Usually a description of bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy which luckily often stabilises itself but is sometimes an early sign of miscarriage.

Acrosome

"Cone" on the head of the sperm filament in which necessary materials (enzymes) are found, which make entry into the egg cell possible. See also Globozoospermia.

ACTH-Test

For the examination of the adrenal gland function. A medicine is injected and various hormones analysed. In this way, enzyme defects of the adrenal glands can be identified (AGS)

Adenomyosis uteri

A special form of endometriosis in which the endometrium proliferates into the underlying muscle (myometrium). This often leads to extreme menstruation pains.

Adhesiolysis

The operative removal of adhesions usually through a laparoscopy, in order to overcome complaints and functional defects such as sterility, which have been caused by the adhesions.

Adhesions

Knots that create adhesions in the fallopian tubes and ovaries (e.g. following operations, bleeding or endometriosis) and can lead to sterility.

Adrenal Cortex

MESA

Adrenogenital Syndrome

An enzyme defect that has the effect that insufficient cortisol is produced. As a result, the preliminary stages of cortisol are multiplied which have an androgenous effect and often lead to cycle disruption and sterility.

AGS

Adrenogenital Syndrome. An enzyme defect that has the effect that insufficient cortisol is produced. As a result, the preliminary stages of cortisol are multiplied which have an androgenous effect and often lead to cycle disruption and sterility.

Amenorrhoea

Absence of period. There is a difference between "primary" amenorrhoea, which means that the woman has never had a period and "secondary" amenorrhoea, which means that she has had periods which have suddenly stopped.

Amniocentesis

Puncturing of the amniotic cavity to extract amniotic fluid to genetically examine the amnion cells or skin cells of the child, which are found in the amniotic fluid. An amniocentesis is carried out between the 14th and 18th week of pregnancy to eliminate the possibility of hereditary disease.

Anamnesis (medical history)

Medical history of the patient. This includes all diseases and operations. In addition, the medical history of the cycle, or the course of the periods in the past, is an important factor.

Androgens

Male hormone

Andrology

The science of male fertility disorders.

Antibodies

Absence of ovulation. Pregnancy cannot occur because ovulation does not take place during an anovulatorish cycle. The length of the cycle can be normal, extended or shortened. Anovulation is often connected to a cycle disorder.

Artificial Insemination

Frozen egg sells in the pre-nucleus stage can be thawed following successful cryopreservation and can be transferred back into the womb following development (embryo transfer)

Aspermia

Special immune system proteins which are produced by the body and react to foreign substances (antigens).

Assisted Hatching

No seminal discharge despite orgasm

Asthenozoospermia

Helping the embryo to hatch from the embryonic membrane. Assisted hatching normally takes place through the use of a laser, which tears the embryonic membrane without damaging the embryo.

Autoantibodies

Too little sperm mobility

Azoospermia

Antibodies that react against their own bodily tissue. Basis of many so-called auto-immune diseases (e.g. rheumatism)
