IUI, IVF, ICSI – whatever the reason that brings a woman, man or couple through our door at Bourn Hall they all share the same desire to be a parent coupled with the need for specialist fertility advice to help them achieve that goal.
We see many who, despite numerous hospital tests, don’t know why they are struggling to conceive (unexplained infertility) along with couples where one or both partners has a condition affecting their fertility such as polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, early menopause, blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count to name just a few.
For each we prepare a personalised plan, here we explain some of the options such as IUI, IVF and ICSI that are available for treatment.

Have you read our latest patient story? Hannah and Jemma talk about their fertility journey to complete their family and the twists and turns on the way.
They both wanted to have treatment to share the experience of carrying a baby, even after Hannah was diagnosed with some fertility issues.
“When we first discussed becoming parents using a sperm donor it was so exciting,” says Hannah. “I proposed to my partner Jemma on New Year’s Eve four years ago and presented her with an engagement ring and the date of our first appointment at Bourn Hall. We both wanted to have treatment so that we could have the shared experience of carrying a baby and had no reason to suspect that one of us would have fertility issues.”
In our latest blog, we spoke to Bourn Hall counsellor, Jackie, about how difficult this decision can be for patients and couples.
“If you are emotionally attached to an embryo, you may see it as a potential child, and that can affect a person on a very, very, deep psychological and emotional level,” says Jackie
“For some people it’s a real dilemma whether to return for treatment with their frozen embryos and how they will feel if they don’t use the embryos themselves. Sometimes this can be a matter of timing and talking to a counsellor can help you decide what is right for you.”
