  What is IVF

  1. Assessments before a cycle of treatment

This is a vital stage which tends to be ignored. It is a fact that many of the women referred to IVF may possibly benefit from other treatment.

Before we commence actual IVF, we invariably run a number of tests, as sperm counts, blood and other tests to confirm that you have a chance of success. In some cases we will give you drugs to make you ovulate (shed an egg from the ovary) just so that we can assess your response to these drugs well before an actual treatment cycle.

This enables us to tailor your treatment in a way to suit your individual needs. We also try, when feasible, to offer effective (alternative) treatments before we embark on IVF.
