Every patient can be at a different stage of their fertility journey and the below is to give you an idea on what individual steps might be involved, or mandatory for treatment. We encourage patients to get in touch so that we can provide specific steps depending on their circumstances (such as previous fertility treatments, investigations, tests, etc.).
For information on costs of the individual services/treatments please refer to our price list or please get in touch and one of our members of staff will be able to advise.
Every patient would have to undergo one of these options before we can offer a treatment.
The Fertility Specialist will discuss your previous medical and fertility history and review any previous investigations or treatments and recommend on treatment options.
We offer Fertility Assessments (sometimes referred to as a Fertility MOT). This assessment investigates some of the factors that affect your fertility; either as a single patient or as a couple.
Investigations & tests
Following your consultation/assessment and your wish to proceed with fertility treatment, the Fertility Specialist might recommend additional investigations or tests to be performed in order to assist us choosing the right treatment for you.
These might include, but not limited to various blood tests specific to your history and/or investigative procedures for further assessment of your condition. You can find more information on the most common investigations and tests by following the links below.
It is also important to note that we will have to perform the mandatory virology screening for all patients involved in treatment. If you have done such screening in the past, please note we might be able to accept the results – for more information please get in touch.
The Fertility Specialist will then discuss and explain the results with you and finalise your treatment plan.
There is a number of treatments we offer and the Fertility Specialist will discuss the available options for you. To find out more on our treatments please follow the link below.
Patients with frozen gamete(s) and/or embryo(s) stored in another clinic, whether in the UK or anywhere else in the world, can have these transported to us using our very own fertility courier brand. Please note these will have to be on site before we can start your treatment. You will be able to find information on cryoshipping using the below link.
Each patient will have a Nurse Consultation before starting their treatment to understand the individual steps and timeline, discuss medication and its application (where applicable), sign consents (where applicable) and also answer any questions
We offer a wide range of laboratory methods and these are often called Treatment Add-ons by the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA). These are optional additional treatments and it is important to keep in mind that these might not improve the outcome of your treatment and sometimes can come at a cost. To make it easier to understand the scientific evidence for each treatment add-on the HFEA have developed the traffic-light rated list of add-ons available here.
Pregnancy blood test & Pregnancy ultrasound scan
In treatments which include insemination or an embryo transfer procedure you will be invited for a pregnancy blood test approximately 2 weeks following the procedure date. This is to check the hormone produced in the body during pregnancy called beta-hCG.
If the levels of beta-hCG are positive, your next step would be to attend for an early pregnancy ultrasound scan.
We can offer continued pregnancy monitoring (ultrasound scans, blood tests or a combination of both) during pregnancy (up to 12wks).
