INFERILITY CLINIC

Our One-Stop Fertility Treatment Clinic, launched in october 1998, is a comprehensive and quick service that allows couples to be seen in a single outpatient assessment visit. It enables us to diagnose the cause of infertility, to offer specialist advice and to recommend possible treatments without further delay. We know from experience that many couples spend up to two years trying to get to the bottom of the cause of their infertility, years that are precious in terms of fertility. The first of its kind in the South East, the fertility clinic aims to speed up the lengthy process of tests and evaluations by providing a fertility assessment in just a couple of hours.

Your fertility treatment

Some tests do have to be arranged at a specific time before the visit, in order to have the results available for discussion with the consultant. By the end of the appointment, the consultant will usually be in a position to advise the most effective treatment for you.

You and your partner will undergo a series of tests, including ultrasound, tubal patency assessment and sperm analysis.

Once a diagnosis has been made, we will discuss with you what options and treatments are available at BMC FERTILITY CLINIC

Infertility:

Infertility is a condition where the couple is unable to conceive after 12 months of regular sexual relationship without birth control.

There are two kinds of infertility - primary and secondary:

Primary infertility means that the couple has never conceived.
Secondary infertility means that the couple has experienced a pregnancy before and failed to conceive later.
A number of people face these problems but are embarrassed or hesitant to seek help.

To understand infertility, we need to understand the process of fertilization.

Recognizing infertility:

If you've had more than a year of regular sexual relationship without birth control and you haven't achieved pregnancy, it's best to seek help. If a year hasn't passed yet, a good strategy is to plan to have sexual relationship during the days the womanis ovulating. If a woman has regular menstrual cycles, sexual relationship between the 8th & the 20th day will help.

Facts about infertility:

It's a myth that infertility is always a "woman's problem". Half of all cases of infertility result from problems with the man's reproductive system. Of couples that seek medical treatment for infertility, 20% conceive before the treatment actually begins. One reason may be that anxiety about infertility may have contributed to the fertility problem, so contacting a doctor and counseling helps. 50% conceive within two years from starting treatment. Most infertility results from physical problems in a man or woman's reproductive system.
