Fertility is not always as straightforward as it would seem; there are factors that may affect your ability to conceive. These include age, lifestyle and medical conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes, premature menopause, insulin resistance, and thyroid and genetic problems. City Fertility Centre offers evaluation and treatment for all female fertility problems.
You and your partner will be required to attend a consultation with a City Fertility specialist. During this appointment the medical procedures will be explained to you and all relevant medical details checked.
These tests are required as part of the routine screening process before treatment. You and your partner will need to have the blood tests completed and the results will be forwarded to your specialist.
It is mandatory for women who are considering using donated sperm to attend a counselling session with their partner. Counselling provides the opportunity to discuss treatment on a more personal level. It allows couples to raise issues that are more private, such as individual concerns, relationship difficulties, or current life situations that may affect their experience of treatment.
Before starting treatment, you will also be required to attend a nurse interview. The nurse co-ordinator will inform you of your treatment plan, medications and their side effects, and discuss the day-to-day requirements of the treatment cycle. Consent forms are provided for you (and your partner) to fill in and sign.
Before treatment can begin, the specialist and nurse co-ordinators will do a final review of the counselling reports, blood tests and consent forms to ensure everything is ready.
A healthy lifestyle is recommended before and during treatment. This includes a sensible approach to diet, exercise and alcohol. Adopt a healthy, balanced diet with adequate protein, carbohydrates and fibre. Before treatment you will be advised to stop smoking and restrict your alcohol consumption.
The first step towards accessing fertility treatment is to obtain a referral from your GP to one of our accredited fertility experts. We guarantee an appointment within 10 working days with the first available specialist.
Whether you have seen other specialists or this is your first time seeking fertility help, you will receive an individualised, comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment.
From the outset of your fertility journey, City Fertility Centre will strive to provide clear and comprehensive information so you feel you can participate in, and make well-informed decisions about, your investigations and treatment.
