Treatment with donor sperm
If you’re ready to start a family and are single, we can offer treatment using donor sperm. This can either be through Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) where prepared screened donor sperm is inserted into the uterus at the fertile time of your cycle or through an IVF treatment cycle. IVF can be performed through a natural cycle or through stimulation of the ovaries to create several eggs and subsequently a choice of embryos for implantation.
If you’re thinking about your fertility but don’t have a partner, egg freezing (sometimes called social egg freezing) may be an option for you. Egg freezing (vitrification) is where you undergo stimulation of the ovaries to create a surplus number of eggs. These eggs can then be collected and frozen for use in the future at a time that is right for you. Whilst egg freezing is not suitable for all women, for some it is reassuring to know they have eggs reserved for the future.
