What is IVF?
IVF can help solve many different fertility issues.
In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is typically used when eggs and sperm can’t reach each other naturally. This can be caused by a number of reasons such as:
- Fallopian tube blockages or scarring
- Mild male factor infertility
- Unexplained infertility
With over 30 years of IVF expertise, you’re only in the best and most experienced hands when you have IVF with us.
Is IVF right for me?
If you’re having trouble conceiving, it doesn’t always mean you need IVF. We’ll determine if IVF is the best approach for you based on your initial fertility investigations, performed at the very start of your journey.
Come and meet us
Get to know our team and clinic at a free 1-2-1 or call us. We can answer any of your questions about IVF. When you’re ready to start, we’ll book you in for your initial pre-treatment investigations to examine your fertility.
Your friendly fertility consultant will go through your test results with you and explain which treatment is best for you and why. You’ll be provided with a fully-costed treatment plan and consent forms. Your IVF cycle can now begin.
IVF starts with ovarian stimulation. We’ll use tailored doses of fertility drugs to help you produce mature eggs, retrieving these in our clinic theatre at exactly the right time. Eggs are fertilised with partner sperm or donor sperm.
Your embryos grow and develop in our state-of-the-art lab under the care of our expert embryologists. We’ll advise when it’s best to have your embryo transfer, based on how well your embryos are growing.
The best embryo is selected by our skilled team and transferred to your uterus under for pregnancy using the latest innovations and techniques. This is a consultant-led, walk-in, walk-out procedure..
You can take a pregnancy test two weeks after embryo transfer. Our fertility midwife will support you during this time. If your test is positive, you’ll be booked in for a pregnancy confirmation scan at around 6-7 weeks.
