At City Fertility Centre, we are passionate about helping single women turn their dream of motherhood into a reality. Fertility treatments are becoming increasingly common amongst single women, offering a solution for having a family without having a partner.
We strive to provide as much information as possible regarding our treatments so you are able to make an informed decision about which option is best for you.
City Fertility Centre delivers a variety of comprehensive fertility treatments (using donor sperm) to give single women the opportunity to start their family.
Available treatment options for single women using donor sperm include:
City Fertility Centre has a great variety of donor sperm, with a range of donor profiles, so you can select your closest match.
To ensure the safety of our patients, all our sperm donors undertake both a semen analysis and a series of pathology tests as part of the routine screening process. Screening tests include: HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis, Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV) 1+2, cytomegalovirus (CMV), cystic fibrosis, karyotype, blood group, FXS, SMA, thrombophilia, full blood count, chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
All our sperm donors have consulted a qualified fertility counsellor.
You will attend a consultation with a City Fertility specialist, where you will learn about the medical procedures involved and have your medical details assessed.
Routine screening tests will be required before commencing treatment. You will need to have your blood tested, and your results will be forwarded to your specialist.
It is compulsory for all single women considering using donated sperm to attend a counselling session. This will give you the chance to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have in regards to the treatment.
Prior to treatment, you will also need to attend a nurse interview. The nurse co-ordinator will advise you of your treatment, medications and their side effects, and discuss the daily requirements of the treatment. You will also be required to fill in and sign consent forms.
Before you can start treatment, the specialist and nurse coordinators will perform a final review of the counselling reports, blood tests and consent forms to make sure everything is in order.
It is advised that you follow a healthy lifestyle prior to, and during, your treatment. A balanced diet, regular exercise and limited alcohol is recommended. Before treatment, you will be required 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 offer a guaranteed appointment within 10 working days with the first available specialist.
Whether you have seen other specialists or this is your first time seeking help with fertility, you will receive an individualised, comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment.
From the outset of your journey, City Fertility Centre will strive to provide clear and comprehensive information so you feel you can take part in, and make well-informed decisions about, your investigations and treatment.
