IVF Treatment

What is IVF Treatment?

IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) is an extremely common fertility treatment, which where your eggs and sperm (or donor eggs / donor sperm) are mixed together and fertilisation takes place outside of the body.

Embryos are then allowed to develop in our embryology lab, with the best embryo being selected for transfer back into the womb to grow naturally.

Our aim for IVF is the same as yours: to create a healthy embryo that marks the start of your pregnancy journey.

When do we recommend IVF?

IVF is chosen by people who are struggling to naturally conceive. Just a handful of reasons include:

  • Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Unexplained infertility
  • People with a risk of carrying genetic diseases
  • Poor sperm quality / quantity
  • Low ovarian reserve
  • Endometriosis

The IVF process

We understand that IVF, or any other kind of fertility treatment, can be a daunting experience. However, we do all that we can to ensure that you’re comfortable – starting from your very first appointment.

Your first appointment

In this meeting, we’ll talk about your family history and medical records. This allows us to plan for any obstacles we might face throughout your IVF treatment. Ultrasounds and an investigation into your reproductive organs, including sperm analysis, may also happen at this stage.

More importantly, this is your chance to ask any questions that you may have surrounding IVF. Your fertility specialist will be able to answer these, which will put your mind at ease when beginning the process.

Preparation for IVF treatment

Patients will be prescribed medication that they should take to ensure they are ready for the treatment, including hormonal stimulation to increase the number of available eggs.

Egg cell and sperm collection

Around 12 days after taking the medication, female patients will undergo hormonal induction to release eggs. They are then collected in a pain-free procedure.  On the same day, the male partner will provide sperm.

In vitro fertilisation begins

After about 5 days, in the laboratory, the collected eggs are fertilised with the sperm and the embryo is transferred into the woman’s uterine cavity. Pregnancy tests can confirm around 14 days later.
