Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

If you are able to transfer your care to us from the NHS then you would still need to meet the NHS guidelines on weight, smoking etc., your BMI would therefore need to be no more than 30.
