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.

At Manchester Fertility we do no treat patients over the age of 50 and strongly advise donated eggs or embryos over 44.  Ideally a patient’s BMI should be under 30 before embarking on fertility treatment but we will treat patients with higher levels although we would recommend weight reduction as this improves the success rates.
