IVF Treatment

Doctors very rarely recommend IVF treatment during your first visit. It is important to first find out you and your spouse’s medical history, lifestyle, concerns and health condition. Our dedicated fertility counsellors will guide you through the process and help you with any concerns.

Starting fertility treatment is a big decision for you and your spouse. Take your time to discuss it together – you need not make a decision immediately.

During your first visit, some screening tests will be required in order to diagnose the problem and find the best solution for your needs. No fasting is required before the tests, but the male partner is required to abstain from sperm release 3-7 days before.
