Fertility Treatment for Couples
Getting pregnant and having a baby should be the most natural thing in the world, but sometimes it doesn’t happen quickly enough, or without some assistance. 1 in 6 couples experiences difficulty conceiving.
Our investigations offer explanations, give direction and provide potential solutions. Our clinicians give clear and honest advice, and will only recommend treatments that are in your best interests.
Getting started is simple. The first step is to schedule your fertility assessments for both partners and a consultation with one of our fertility specialists. At your consultation, we will review your current fertility potential and discuss all the options with you.
When To Seek Help?
If you are under 35 and have been trying for a baby for 12 months, or over 35 and trying for 6 months, it’s important to be seen by a fertility specialist. Patients who are over 40 should get in touch straight away. This guidance is for couples where the female partner has regular cycles. You should see a specialist sooner if you have any issues such as irregular or absent periods, ejaculation issues, a diagnosis of PCOS or endometriosis, prior surgeries or any medical conditions that may complicate conception or pregnancy.
A few simple blood tests and an ultrasound scan will give you a wealth of information about your fertility potential, and if you do need assistance, we will get you on the right path to build your family.
