You’ve made the exciting decision to start your family – but if you need IVF, how exactly do you get started?

Taking the first steps to treatment can be daunting, and it can sometimes be confusing to know what to do first.

Here’s your step-by-step guide to starting your IVF journey with Manchester Fertility: 

1. Research

Brochure:Request our brochure here - we’ll send you a digital copy or in the post. Our brochure tells you more about our clinic, our team and our approach. You can learn about our expertise, our innovations and our full range of fertility treatments and services.

Website:Have a browse through our informative and easy-to-use website. Mobile optimised for information on the go, it’s your online guide to fertility treatment and how you can fund it with us.

You’ll find useful resources, tips, HFEA links, advice guides, an expert IVF and fertility blog from our team and patient testimonials, so you can see what it’s like to have your family with Manchester Fertility.  

You can also try our online cost calculator tool, explore our transparent prices and learn more about available funding options and patient support services including diet and nutrition, counselling and acupuncture.

2. Initial enquiry

You’re bound to have a lot of questions and queries – we’re here to help. There are lots of different ways to contact our friendly Patient Advisor team if you want to clarify or discuss any aspect of IVF and fertility treatment with us: 

3. Free 1-2-1

In addition to an over-the-phone chat, we’d love to meet you. We offer free private 1-2-1 appointments with our Patient Advisors.

Your 1-2-1 is a non-medical, informal and no obligation appointment where we’ll answer all your questions and explain more about any fertility treatments, services and funding options you may be interested in. We can also take you on a tour of our clinic, so you can see our facilities and meet some of our team.

4. Self-refer

When you’re ready to get started with us, it’s easy to do that too. You can either call our Patient Advisors to book your initial appointments, or self-refer online and we’ll arrange it with you.

Support at every stage

You can look forward to a personalised IVF journey with us from the moment you enquire.

Our compassionate and dedicated team are here to reassure and guide you every step of the way.

We’ll provide you with support, care and understanding, with all the information you need to make informed treatment decisions together with counselling help throughout your journey.
