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.

Cara tried for 10 years to fulfil her dreams of a family - her advice is get advice early and we have a free event this Saturday in Ipswich
People in Suffolk can access free IVF treatment and Bourn Hall Colchester offers all the appointments and treatment in the same place.
We can also now offer a free diagnosis and Ovulation Induction (OI) service to NHS patients on a GP referral, so you don't need to go to a hospital for tests.Failure to release eggs regularly is a major cause of infertility and this can be successfully treated with OI. Medication such as clomid is given to stimulate ovaries and carefully monitored by ultrasound to give you an accurate 'fertility window' for intercourse to achieve a natural pregnancy.
Please share this with someone you know who is struggling - 10 years to have your life on hold is a very long time. ... See MoreSee Less

“Looking back I wish I had known earlier that I had polycystic ovary syndrome,” says Rachel from Ipswich who was unable to conceive due to a condition she knew nothing about. PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility in women and can have a number of symptoms including irregular periods and excess facial hair.
Rachel needed IVF but many women can conceive naturally following ovulation induction and/or lifestyle changes. Bourn has a new service offering fertility diagnosis in just 6 weeks and OI treatment. more information at our Ipswich Roadshow
