Fertility and Infertility
About one in seven couples living in the western world have problems conceiving. It has been estimated that around 80 million couples worldwide have some fertility problems. Fertility is the ability to conceive.

One Stop Clinic
The One-stop Fertility Clinic is a comprehensive and quick outpatient service that enables assessment of the reproductive performance of both the female and male partners at the time of a single outpatient visit.

This involves the use of fertility drugs to stimulate the development of one or two mature follicles in the ovaries of women who do not develop and release a mature egg every month on their own (condition known as oligo- or anovulation).
Read more about Ovulation induction.
In vitro fertilisation (IVF)
This is the most used assisted conception technique worldwide. IVF literally means fertilisation “in-glass”, hence the origin of the name “test tube baby”.
Read more about IVF Treatment.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
This is a relatively simple fertility treatment that involves inserting prepared sperm into the womb (uterus) around the time of ovulation (release of an egg) using a very fine tube known as a catheter.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
This is a more sophisticated technique as compared to conventional IVF. Up to the point of egg collection, ICSI and IVF do not differ at all.

A blastocyst is an embryo at an advanced stage of development (day 5 post fertilisation). With blastocyst transfer, embryos are cultured in the laboratory incubator to the blastocyst stage before they are transferred in to the womb (uterus).

Egg freezing can be used successfully for both social and medical reasons. It is becoming more relevant and in demand as many women are facing the real challenge of having successful, healthy pregnancies later in life.

Assisted conception treatment using eggs donated by another woman may be recommended certain cases.
Read more about Egg donation.
Donated sperm in fertility treatment means that the sperm is produced by a man other than the woman’s partner and then used to fertilise an egg either by in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in the laboratory or by intrauterine insemination (IUI).
Read more about Sperm donation.
About Ovarian Reserve Tests
The rising trend towards delayed parenthood is resulting in a greater number of women seeking conception at an older age.
Read more about Ovarian Reserve Tests.
Predicting Ovarian Response
Adequate ovarian response to gonadotrophin stimulation is a prerequisite for successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment.
Read more about Predicting Ovarian Response.
Fertility Related Genetic Tests
Genetic testing is done to ensure that healthy embryos are selected for transfer in the uterus (womb).
