Getting pregnant isn’t always easy
Thousands of Australians have trouble conceiving.
Many couples plan carefully to ensure the time is just right to achieve pregnancy and start a family. And., for most couples pregnancy will occur naturally within 12 months of trying. However, for up to 20 per cent of couples they keep trying and nothing happens or they achieve pregnancy only to miscarry.
Achieving a successful pregnancy relies on many factors and any difficulties encountered along the way could be the cause of infertility. For a successful pregnancy, you generally need; 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.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after a year of unprotected intercourse, or the inability to carry pregnancies to a live birth
Starting the journey
People are often unsure of what to expect when approaching fertility and understandably have a lot of questions.
We offer a free 15 minute chat with a qualified Fertility Nurse to help answer those questions and help you make an informed decision . Our Fertility Nurse Jo has over 18 years’ experience and can answer any questions you have about getting pregnant, discuss our available treatments and the next steps to take.
The Process of IVF
Many of our patients undertake a short IVF cycle called an Antagonist Cycle. The Antagonist Cycle generally has a 4 week time frame from a patient telephoning with their period to pregnancy test. This treatment is much quicker, has less side effects and is less stressful, so couples see results earlier.
