According to WHO, infertility is a problem of the whole couple. The causes are multifactorial, often intersecting each
other. Their diagnosis and treatment are involved in several clinical disciplines, whose close cooperation is fundamentally
beneficial to a success rate of treatment.
Regarding an increasing number of today clarified factors of infertility, their effective coordination is essential as it enhances
the efficiency of management treatment, and last but not least reduces treatment costs.
The Section of Assisted Reproduction in Slovakia, following the example of several professional societies for the treatment
of infertility, has prepared a document comprising the diagnosis and treatment of the most frequent causes of
infertility in women in our country on the basis of ”evidence-based medicine” and recommended ”clinical guidelines”
in clinical practice.
