Clinic overview

 

Institut Marquès is a centre of international renown in Gynaecology, Obstetrics and Assisted Reproduction. It was founded in Barcelona 95 years ago and it is accredited by the Spanish Healthcare Ministry to perform all Assisted Reproduction techniques allowed by the current legislation. Every year, hundreds of foreign patients travel to the centre hoping to achieve a pregnancy, mainly through In Vitro Fertilisation with Egg and/or Sperm Donation. Most of these patients come from the UK, France, Germany, Italy, the United States, Canada, South America, China and Arabian countries, because of their high pregnancy rates and high-quality care offered. The results obtained at Institut Marquès are only comparable to those from top IVF centres in the US and Europe, but at a more competitive price and with a lower multiple pregnancy rate. These results correspond to the official registry of Catalonia or FIV-CAT.

Institut Marquès’ International Programme

The increasing demand from foreign couples has led us to develop a strong international programme, which currently positions Institut Marquès as one of the top IVF clinics worldwide. The strength of our international programme, in addition to the high quality of care and excellent IVF results, relies on the fact that Spain has one of the most advanced assisted reproduction legislation in Europe. The legislation approved by the Spanish Parliament in May 2006 no longer limits the number of oocytes to be inseminated and allows egg and sperm donation for all women who wish to undergo these sort of treatments, regardless of marital status and sexual orientation. Unlike other countries in Europe, egg and sperm donation in Spain is anonymous and, therefore, the identity of the donor can never be revealed.

However, at Institut Marquès Clane (Ireland) there is the possibility of undergoing a sperm donation treatment with both an anonymous or a non-anonymous donor.

 

Egg donation at Institut Marquès – Spain

  • Institut Marquès’s egg donation programme is the assisted reproduction technique with the highest pregnancy rate per cycle: 89% success rate.
  • 6 mature eggs guaranteed.
  • We have at your disposal a pool of egg and sperm donors of all phenotypes and suitable for all races and physical traits.
  • Our donors are young, healthy & caring women who would like to help other women. Usually they are people who are aware of and sensitive to social issues. In many cases, they are also blood & organ donors.
  • Donors are selected according to the phenotypical characteristics and blood group that most closely match those of the couple.
  • Donors need to be physically and mentally healthy with no history of hereditary diseases in their family. After an interview in which both the medical and family history are studied in detail, the donors undergo a thorough medical examination, including blood analyses, pelvic ultrasound scans and vaginal cultures, karyotype testing, and tests to exclude both infectious diseases and the most common genetic mutations causing cystic fibrosis in European populations.
  • Patients will be given some characteristics of the donor. However, according to Spanish legislation, her identity can never be disclosed.
  • The Spanish Law states that donation is anonymous and that the donors do not have the right to know the identity of any child born as a result of their donation. Nor can the child ever discover the donor’s identity.
  • In Spain donation is altruistic, however financial compensation covering transport, simple medical care and absence from work is allowed.
  • Donation with both anonymous or non-anonymous sperm donors. Available in our clinic in Clane (Ireland)

Institut Marquès’ Donors

At Institut Marquès, patients who have to undergo a sperm donation are offered the possibility of choosing whether they want to do it eithet with an anonymous or a non-anonymous at our clinic in Clane (Ireland).

Institut Marquès has a large pool of anonymous egg and sperm donors covering all blood types and phenotypes, making it possible to undergo an IVF with egg/sperm donation with no waiting lists. The donors are good willed, young and healthy Catalonian and foreign men and women who live in Barcelona. They are mainly university students. Egg and sperm donors are carefully screened and selected by the clinic’s experienced donation medical team. The donors are carefully matched with the international patients according to their phenotypic characteristics and blood types.

At Institut Marquès Clane (Ireland) patients can undergo a non-anonymous sperm donation through a sperm bank. In this case, patients should contact directly our partner banks. This process is very simple and fast. In each case, we will provide the patient with all the necessary information about the process, prices, terms and conditions, shipping times and we will answer any other question that may arise. Once the sperm donor will have been chosen, the patient will only have to ask for the semen sample to be shipped to Institut Marquès Ireland, in Clane.

 
Institut Marquès – Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

Institut Marquès offers Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis for international patients. PGD benefits three groups of patients: Patients with infertility problems, patients with a caryotipe alteration and patients with hereditary diseases. Furthermore, PGD can be performed on patients of advanced maternal age or simply on those who want to optimize the chances of achieving a pregnant and delivering a healthy baby.

Spanish IVF centre Institut Marquès offers all our international patients who undergo egg donation or other fertility treatments a permanent contact with their reference doctor, as well as with their Patient and Medical Assistant by telephone or e-mail. This helps answering all questions they may have concerning their egg donation process.

Thanks to the high success rates of the Egg Donation programme (89% per cycle), the majority of international patients who undergo IVF with donor eggs at Institut Marquès are able to achieve an on-going pregnancy. To complete an Egg Donation cycle at the centre, only two visits are necessary:  a first consultation with the doctor where the fertility treatment course is designed, and a second one to perform the embryo transfer. The first visit can also be done via Skype.

At Institut Marquès, every patient is offered a personalized and individual course of treatment. A team of skilled infertility experts discusses each case in order to achieve the best results possible.

Over the years, we have focused our attention on offering excellence and innovation, attending to each patient individually and offering them respectful and caring support as they face the most profound of human desires: to create a family.

In order to meet individual expectations of the international patients, Institut Marquès provides psychological professional counselling with a team of psychologists specialising specialized in the field of assisted reproduction.

Institut Marquès owes its name to the family whose members have represented the centre’s unity and continuity throughout time. Dr. Vicens Marquès i Bertran (Barcelona, 1895-1977) began practicing as a gynaecologist back in 1922, ninety-five years ago. He was the first in a four-generation family of gynaecologists, who established both the tradition and the Institut Marquès’s dedication to serving our patients, a philosophy that still holds true.

 

Institut Marquès Barcelona, more than a clinic

Institut Marquès offers at its Barcelona location a one and only experience for parents-to-be. The clinic breaks any design standards by offering the latest technologies, care and services, so our patients will feel like home in a warm and cosy environment.

At our clinic, patients can customise their embryo transfer day with a wide range of special services on demand: relaxing massage, acupuncture, private space, and so on.

 

The Forest of Embryos: planting a tree for every birth

For many years now, Institut Marquès has been engaged in the environmental cause. This is why we have been conducting many studies since 2002 regarding pollution and the impact it has on the sperm quality and fertility and we are the only centre having carried out a comparative study of sperm in Spain. According to Institut Marquès’ research, toxic substances (endocrine disruptors) and the environmental pollution are directly connected to the increase of infertility in the most industrialised areas.

 

After having demonstrated the impact of pollution on health and infertility, Institut Marquès has decided to make its contribution by fighting pollution in its very own way. This is why we have launched the Forest of Embryos, a project conducted in collaboration with an ecological organisation. With the help of the association L’Escurçó (Tarragona), Institut Marquès will plant a tree for every new birth made possible through our IVF treatments.
