Reproductive medicine centre

At the Reproductive medicine centre (RMC), we are experts in the field of reproduction. We cover all aspects of reproductive health.

Patients undergo examinations for infertility and repeated miscarriages here, as well as examinations prior to assisted fertilisation. We also investigate and treat male and female hormonal disorders and provide hormonal treatment for gender reassignment.

We have specialists in areas such as gynaecology, andrology, endocrinology and gynaecological endocrinology. Bringing several different specialities together in one place provides us with the best possible knowledge in respect of both patient treatment and research.

We are constantly working to develop in areas related to reproductive health. We have close links between clinical activities, research and development in order to ensure we maintain our leading position both nationally and internationally.

Not only should our service offering meet the needs of the region, but also be capable of attracting patients from other parts of the country, from the Danish part of the Öresund region and from other countries.

We are part of the EU-funded ReproUnion project. The aim of this project is to provide citizens on the Danish and Swedish sides of the Öresund with the best service in the field of reproduction – both now and in the future.

Doctors, secretaries, nurses, midwives, a donation coordinator, embryologists, biomedical analysts, secretaries and a psychologist all work at the clinic. We have around 40 employees in total.


We conduct extensive research in areas of reproductive health that are already established, as well as new areas.

One of our research areas relates to diseases of the reproductive system. Diseases of the reproductive system are among the most common at different stages of life. Examples include congenital malformations, testicular cancer, infertility and breast cancer.

We are investigating whether there are common causes of these that are due to an interaction between genetic predisposition and environmental and lifestyle factors. We hope to be able to help bring about a better understanding of the causes of the diseases and the development of new therapies, and what can be done to prevent or slow the diseases.

Another important field of research involves the study of sperm chromatin disruption in relation to the chances of pregnancy. We have shown that the proportion of sperm with chromosome breakage plays an important part in the chances of fertilisation both naturally and by insemination.

All studies are conducted at RMC and the Clinical research centre (CRC), and also in collaboration with other research teams both within and outside Lund University.
