All patients will be required to attend an appointment with one of our specialist consultants who will a detailed medical history and documentation for you and your partner (if applicable). For females this would include a pelvic ultrasound scan to assess your womb and ovaries and an Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) blood test to give an indication of your ovarian reserve. For the male partner, we would arrange a semen analysis to assess the quality of his sperm. If you are in a same-sex relationship and you are unsure which partner (or both of you) will have treatment, we would suggest you both have these tests.
If you have already had initial investigations into your fertility or have had treatment elsewhere already, please bring along any results that you have to your first consultation at the centre.
We hold regular open evenings for people who are unsure how to take the first steps in obtaining help to start their families.
Our open evenings give you the oppotunity to find out more about the range of treatments and services we offer. Meet our specialist fertility consultants and meet our friendly team members who will be on hand to answer any questions and discuss the kinds of treatment available to you.
Before you start treatment you will be required to have:
An Initial consultation
This is a detailed appointment with a specialist fertility consultant who will conduct all the required tests, medical history and investigations.
You will be required to have some hormone and virology blood tests, semen analysis and an ultrasound scan. Once your consultant has reviewed these tests you will be given a tailored treatment plan with the fees.
When you are ready to start a treatment cycle you will be invived to attend an appointment with a fertility practitioner to go through all the consent forms and they will answer any questions you have.
Counselling (for donor treatment)
Before you start any donor treatment you will be required to attend an appointment with our counsellor who will discuss the donor treatment and what this involves.
Once you have completed all of the above one of our fertility practitioners will see you for a medication teaching appointment, where they will talk through the medication you will be taking during treatment and how to administer this.
