Getting pregnant isn’t always easy
Thousands of Australians have trouble conceiving.
With today’s busy lifestyles, many couples plan carefully to ensure the time is just right to achieve pregnancy and start a family.
For most couples, pregnancy occurs naturally within 12 months of trying. However, for up to 20 per cent of couples either nothing happens or they achieve pregnancy only to miscarry.
Achieving a successful pregnancy relies on many factors. The production of healthy sperm and eggs, unblocked fallopian tubes, the ability for the sperm to fertilise the egg when they meet, a genetically healthy embryo and the ability of the embryo to implant in the uterus. If any of these factors encounter difficulties along the way, they could be the cause of not getting pregnant.

What happens during the IVF Process
Most of our patients undertake a short IVF cycle known as an Antagonist Cycle. On average the Antagonist Cycle time frame is approximately 4 weeks from a patient telephoning with their period to pregnancy test. This treatment is less stressful, has fewer side effects and is much quicker, so couples see results earlier.
Step 1 – Egg Collection
Step 2 – Sperm Retrieval
Step 3 – Insemination
Step 4 – Fertilisation
Step 5 – Embryo Culture
Step 6 – Embryo Transfer
