1. Fertility Consultation & Scan
The first step in most fertility treatments is the scans and
physical assessment. Based on the results of the assessment a fertility
plan will be devised for you which will give you the best chance of
a successful pregnancy.
2. Treatment Consultation
A fertility specialist will speak to you about your treatment plan.
Explain the details of the process and sign the necessary consent forms.
This is done roughly 2 weeks before the start of your menstrual cycle.
Counselling will also be provided if required.
3. Scans & Blood tests
Two to Three monitoring scans will be done. Blood tests will also
be carried out if required. Each test takes about 20 minutes each.
4. Egg collection
Egg quality is assessed and one egg is extracted. This process
requires sedation and takes approximately 45 minutes.
5. Embryo Transfer
The fertilized egg or embryo is transferred to the womb for
furthering the pregnancy process. This is a very small procedure that
doesn’t require sedation and feels like a smear test.
6. Pregnancy Test
We will invite you back to the clinic for a pregnancy blood test
and give you the test results by the end of the day.
