Raising children is seen by many as self-evident. But not everyone can have children. Both physiological and psychological barriers can result in involuntary childlessness.


Not being able to have children although you want to arouse strong emotions, many feel powerless, sad and angry. But there is help to get, the most important thing is to start an investigation and treatment and then look at what alternatives are available.


Involuntary childlessness is defined as a year's attempt to have children without results. It can be difficult to determine a specific cause of childlessness. Here are the most common reasons why it is difficult to get pregnant:

  • High age (especially for women, fertility declines over the years and the risk of miscarriage increases).
  • Äggledarskador
  • Ovulation disorders
  • Endometriosis (a disease in which the uterine mucosa occurs outside the uterus)
  • Heavy obesity or underweight
  • Disturbed sperm formation
  • Affected sperm transport and ejaculation
  • Untreated genital infections
  • Immunological factors
  • Smoking
  • Combination for several reasons


An involuntary childlessness is investigated by an outpatient gynecologist who can then refer for further infertility examination. The male's sperm quality is examined and in the woman the fallopian tubes and ovulation function are examined.

If sperm quality is suspected to be the problem, the man is referred to an andrological center for further examinations. If the woman's ovulation and / or fallopian tube function is not functioning satisfactorily, test tube fertilization (IVF) may be an alternative. An investigation can sometimes drag on time, here you as a patient have the right to make demands. An infertility study should not take more than six months.


Depending on what the childlessness is due to, treatment varies by cause. Generally, three types of treatments are most common.

Stimulation of the ovaries (so-called ovulation stimulation) by hormones. This treatment is mainly performed when the woman does not have regular ovulation. By taking hormones, the growth of ovaries in the ovary is stimulated.

Insemination (with partner's sperm or with donor sperm). Childlessness can sometimes be due to the man's sperm being unable to get through the secretions in the vagina. This treatment method involves an artificial transfer of the sperm so that they can better reach their target.

Test tube fertilization (IVF, In Vitro Fertilization) can be performed if the woman is not over 38 years of age and the man has not reached the age of 55 years. You must not have had a previous biological child. IVF is performed after the woman has undergone hormone therapy, after which several of her eggs are fertilized by the man's sperm (either from partner or from donor) in a test tube. Then one or more eggs are brought back into the uterus.


In addition to the above treatment options, egg and sperm donation may be an alternative to test tube fertilization. Since January 2003, egg donation and test tube fertilization with donor sperm in Sweden has been permitted. At present, donors are being tested in Sweden and it is therefore estimated that it may be possible to carry out such test tube fertilization here in the near future. In Denmark, for example, the development has gone faster, so you can choose to perform the treatment there. Treatment with donated eggs / sperm is permitted in Sweden for married, registered partners and cohabitants. The availability of donors is still limited.

As of January 2005, according to Swedish law, gay women are allowed to inseminate. This applies to women who live with another woman and both parties are then considered as parents. The rule of cohabitation can be circumvented in case of insemination abroad.
