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.
