- IVF treatment
For some, trying to get pregnant can be a very difficult and emotional process. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a commonly discussed fertility treatment and can be recommended for couples having difficulty conceiving, for single ladies and for same-sex couples. Each person has a unique reaction to fertility treatment and to their personal journey. The team at Nuffield Health can support you throughout. Their specialist nursing team work with you to make certain that the risks and side effects of IVF are fully discussed before you go ahead. They also have a team of specialist fertility counsellors to support you emotionally.

A typical IVF cycle can be broken down into the following phases:
The female undergoes a treatment cycle where her own menstrual cycle is suppressed. Once this has been achieved the ovaries are then stimulated with gonadotrophin drugs to produce several eggs.
2. Egg retrieval
When the follicles in which the eggs are contained reach maturity, an injection will be given to allow the follicles to release the eggs. This is all timed accurately so that the eggs can be collected (usually under sedation or light general anaesthetic) using ultrasound guidance.
3. Fertilisation and culture
Once the eggs are retrieved they will be fertilised with a prepared sperm sample from the partner or sperm donor and incubated over night. The clinic will culture fertilised eggs (embryos) for several days depending on their development.
4. Embryo transfer and freezing
An appointment will be given to you to attend for the embryo transfer, usually on days two or three or days five or six after egg collection. Any embryos remaining in culture that are of suitable quality will be frozen (cryopreserved using vitrification) provided we receive your consent.
5. Pregnancy test
A pregnancy test will be carried out 11 to 14 days after embryo transfer; depending on which day the embryos were transferred. If your test is positive an early pregnancy scan will be carried out vaginally when you are between six and seven weeks pregnant. This is to check for an on-going pregnancy by checking the growth of the foetus and the heartbeat.
