Melbourne locals now have easy access to a new alternative in fertility care and IVF with the opening of City Fertility’s all-inclusive and state-of-the-art IVF clinic in Notting Hill (near Clayton).
Our new purpose-built clinic has been designed to maximise pregnancy outcomes by incorporating modern on-site consulting rooms, a dedicated day hospital and a world-class IVF laboratory all in the one location.
Knowing when the best time is to conceive each month is an important factor in helping achieve a successful pregnancy. Unfortunately, some patients miss getting this right which is delaying a positive outcome for them sooner rather than later.
Put simply, the timing of conception is critical to success, and by learning to understand your body’s menstrual cycle and the signs of ovulation, it may help you feel more in control.
Ovulation is when the egg is released from the ovary and is a female’s most fertile time of the month.
To all the men out there, listen up…you also play a crucial role in helping achieve a healthy pregnancy, so don’t just leave it to the women. The health of both the sperm and eggs are equally important to optimising your chances of pregnancy.
There are several lifestyle factors you can control that will help enhance your fertility, but take note, for sperm it takes approximately two and a half months to see if changes to your lifestyle have improved your sperm quality.
So what are the biggest factors you can focus on? Here are some of the top priorities I recommend.
An increasing body of research is supporting the belief that the chemicals we come across in our everyday lives are reducing fertility, particularly in men.
A recent book Count Down published in February 2021 by renowned epidemiologist Professor Shanna Swan asserts that the sperm count of Western men has plunged by more than 50 per cent in the past 40 years.
Professor Swan said we can’t keep blaming our fertility problems on delayed childbearing, choice or lifestyle. Chemicals are one of the main causes of fertility issues and they are everywhere surrounding us in our everyday lives from what we eat, breathe to the products we use.

We all know that nurses play a crucial role in keeping people healthy and caring for them and their families during the happiest and saddest times in their lives. The global COVID-19 pandemic has shown the world just how important nurses are, and perhaps a greater appreciation of their professional expertise and commitment, to care for their patients, despite the risks.
In honour of International Nurses Day, we caught up with one of our registered nurses, Molly Toogood, to give you an insight into what it takes to be a nurse in the world of fertility and their role in helping people realise their dreams to have a family.
Potential families who require donor sperm to achieve their dream of having a baby are everywhere. They could be your neighbours, colleagues, siblings, friends or even your favourite celebrities.
They might be single individuals, LGBTI+ couples or heterosexual couples who require donor sperm due to medical (poor sperm quality) or social (neither partner have sperm) reasons. Without it, their chances of a baby are often slim to none.
What everyone in need should know is that access to safe donor sperm is available through City Fertility, reducing the risk factors involved.

When I tell people what I do for a living, one of the most common responses is something along the lines of: ‘wow, business must be booming with women leaving it so late these days.’
Trying to start a family in a woman’s late 30’s or early 40’s is hardly a new phenomenon. In fact, 20 years ago the American Society for Reproductive Medicine ran a controversial education campaign with billboards and magazine ads.
