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.

What a lovely story - thank you for sharing xxI just wanted to share our story with you and to all those couples who are struggling with fertility. We first had ivf with Bourn Hall back in 2014. After our 3rd and final attempt we were lucky enough to conceive our gorgeous little girl who is now almost 3 years old. We never in our wildest dreams thought that we would be lucky enough to conceive naturally and I gave birth to our gorgeous little boy 2 weeks ago. Ruby is loving being a big sister and our family is now complete. We can't thank Bourn Hall whymondham enough for everything they did for us. 💓💙💓💙💓💙💓💙💓💙 ... See MoreSee Less
Charlotte's endometriosis was so bad the surgeons thought she had bowel cancer. 30 minutes before they went to operate she was told she might lose an ovary and asked had she considered egg freezing!
Fortunately despite severe endometriosis, Charlotte is now pregnant, but she is keen to create awareness that treatment for endometriosis can damage your ovaries and egg freezing might be an insurance policy.
The launch of a new egg bank that will enable access to a greater diversity of donated eggs and make it easier for women facing surgery – or another life event that will impact their fertility – to freeze their own eggs and keep their chance of having a baby.
Delighted to have world's first frozen embryo twin Jamie Facer-Childs to do the honours for us - big thanks to Jamie and his mum Ro ... See MoreSee Less
Bourn Hall pioneered the freezing of sperm and embryos and has now launched a new egg freezing programme to increase access to fertility preservation.
Jamie, the world's first frozen embryo twin 'opened the egg bank' and Martyn Blayney embryologist and Science Director explained why the new service is so important
Martyn says: We’re hoping to offer a greater choice and convenience for our patients, whose only hope of parenthood is through donated eggs.
"We would like to enable more UK patients the opportunity to use UK sourced donors to avoid any of those potential pitfalls that going overseas has caused.
"We want more women to realise that their egg quality declines rapidly after 35 and if this is a concern for them and they want to freeze their eggs and are happy to share some with another patient, we can make this an affordable option for them.
"Something we are all really really passionate about – is making people aware they can freezing sperm, eggs and embryos prior to any medical procedure that could render a patient infertile. It is really successful and we want more of our colleagues in oncology and throughout the NHS to be aware this service exists."
