Fertility Services offered

Fertility Assessment – A thorough clinical assessment, along with a range of tests, helps us get to the heart of your fertility issues. See Female fertility testing & Male fertility testing.

IUI – Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a type of fertility treatment that involves placing a large number of sperm directly into the uterus to increase the chances that the sperm and egg will meet.

IVF – stands for In Vitro Fertilisation. In essence, it’s a procedure designed to overcome infertility by starting a pregnancy outside the womb (i.e. in vitro).

Egg Freezing – keeping some of your younger, better-quality eggs ‘on ice’ just in case you run into fertility problems later in life – can help safeguard your future fertility. 

Donor Sperm – It is now very common for Assigned Females at Birth (AFAB) to use donor sperm to help them conceive. Donor sperm can also help heterosexual couples struggling with infertility due to sperm abnormalities.

Talent hits a target no one else can hit, while genius hits a target no one else can see. 

Lucky for us, our experienced embryologists possess both the talent and ingenuity needed to make magic happen! 

This image beautifully captures intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), an advanced technique that may be added to an IVF cycle. It involves injecting a single sperm directly into the centre of a mature egg.

For fertilisation to occur, sperm must push through the egg’s outer layer to reach the centre. However, this layer may be too thick or tough for sperm to penetrate, especially if they are abnormally shaped or have difficulty swimming. ICSI removes this obstacle.

Our embryologists undergo years of meticulous training to perfect the technique needed to perform ICSI – because we like to ensure that our scientific team have the talent and ingenuity to give you the best chance of a successful pregnancy.

Egg and embryo freezing is more common than you think ❄

The latest data shows that freezing eggs and embryos for future use has increased by 61.5% compared to findings collected from the previous year (2020). 

Egg freezing is a common way for people to safeguard their fertility, allowing them to store their eggs until a time in the future when they are ready to start trying for a baby.

While women are most fertile in their twenties and early thirties, sometimes their life circumstances don’t suit having a baby within that age bracket. For this reason, it is common for people to choose to become parents later in life.

Egg freezing gives women the option to preserve some of their younger, more fertile eggs, storing them until a point in the future when they are ready for family life.
