There are many different treatment options available which we can provide. Some are simple interventions we can make using medication to help you conceive naturally, however these are not always possible or will lead to a quick successful outcome.
We therefore take many factors into account when deciding which treatment options will be most suitable for you.
How can we help?
Book a consultation to meet one of our Aria consultants
At this first visit you will have a consultation with one of our medical consultants who will review your general health, medical history, including any relevant gynaecological details and discuss any previous test results, pregnancies or fertility treatment cycles. You may be required to have a pelvic ultrasound scan to assess the reproductive health of the womb and ovaries.
An antral follicle count performed during the scan, coupled with an Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) blood test, will give an indication of your ovarian reserve or reproductive potential. If you have a partner then it is very important that they also attend this initial visit
During the consultation the doctor may make some recommendations regarding any further tests which are relevant based on the information you have provided about your medical history. Once we have a clear understanding of your reproductive health, we will be able to advise you on the most appropriate treatment options.
The treatment planning stage
We will discuss your personalised treatment plan and provide you with all information you need to start your treatment. Together with one of our experienced fertility nurses we will plan and provide you with a clear explanation of the treatment process. You will be guided through information about your treatment, learn how to perform you own medication injections and complete all necessary consent forms before starting the treatment cycle.
Your treatment options
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a relatively simple fertility treatment. IUI is recommended if we cannot identify any specific reason why you may be struggling to get pregnant.
This procedure involves our laboratory to prepare the male partner or donor sperm sample, separating out the fast-moving sperm from the non-moving or poor-quality sperm. This purified sample is then transferred into the women’s uterus around the same time as the ovaries release an egg.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is used to treat a wide range of fertility problems including unexplained fertility. During the IVF process, the ovaries are stimulated to develop several eggs, these are removed from the ovaries and fertilised with sperm prepared in the laboratory. The fertilised egg then develops into an embryo which is replaced back into the womb. Alternatively, all the embryos may be frozen and preserved until the time is right for you to attempt to try for a pregnancy.
