PCOS affects approximately 12–21% of women of reproductive age globally. However, as the severity of symptoms experienced can vary drastically from person to person, it is estimated that a worrying 70% of women with PCOS remain undiagnosed. With the ability to affect women’s mental health, self-esteem, fertility and general health, achieving an early diagnosis and medical management is critical to protecting the health and wellbeing of women diagnosed.

In the world of IVF, it is best practice to have procedure rooms and laboratories all co-located in order to maximise a patient’s pregnancy outcomes. This not only reduces travel for patients but also minimises the movement of the precious eggs, sperm and embryos that are being created.
City Fertility’s newest flagship clinic, in Sydney’s CBD, has been designed with this foremost in mind, for both our patient’s convenience and equally important for the safety of their valuable embryos too.

The 25th July is recognised as World Embryologist Day, the same special date as the world’s first IVF baby being born.
Embryologists play a critical role in an IVF clinic – they are the scientific staff who help make babies happen, literally creating life in their hands. They are sometimes referred to as the ‘caretakers’ of a patient’s sperm, eggs or embryos because they are the nurturers of this new start of life.

Fertility health is not just a women’s issue. In fact, up to 40 per cent of infertility issues are the result of a male factor.
While it may be worrying to hear that a male functional, hormonal or sperm problem might be contributing to a couple’s troubles conceiving, it is also important to understand they are common and there are many simple and effective treatments available to help conception occur.
City Fertility is extremely excited about the recent bill passed on 4th June by the Victorian Government, to remove the requirement for couples and individuals undergoing Assisted Reproductive Treatment (ART) to carry out police and child protection order checks before accessing treatment.
