Additional Services and Treatments

Additional Services


In addition to our fertility-related treatments and services, we also offer women’s health services through our partners at Ultrasound Direct and Hormone Health.

Menopause

The body’s hormones are fundamental to everyday life. Changes in their balance need careful management, whether it be due to a medical condition or a specific stage of life.

Additional Treatments


The HFEA advise there is limited or no conclusive evidence to suggest that many additional treatments increase pregnancy rates during IVF treatment. For more information please see the HFEA advice and contact us if you would like to discuss this further.

Reflexology and acupuncture

Reflexology and acupuncture are increasingly being used alongside IVF and IUI treatment, with many patients reporting that they feel less stressed and more in control during treatment. Support is available before, during and after the IVF process at many of our clinics.

Additional Treatments Acupuncture

Endometrial scratch

This procedure involves the womb lining being scraped to increase the chances of embryo implantation, particularly if you’ve had previously unsuccessful IVF attempts.

EmbryoScope™ Time-lapse monitoring

The EmbryoScope™ is a special incubator that has 15 built-in cameras, capable of taking pictures of your embryo several times an hour. These pictures are then combined to create a time-lapse video showing the embryo’s development right up to the blastocyst stage.

Genetic screening

We can provide various levels of genetic screening during treatment, to help us select embryos with normal chromosomes that will have the best chance of developing into a healthy pregnancy. The pre-implantation genetic screening we offer is Next Generation Sequencing from embryo biopsy, which is when a few cells are removed from the outer layer of the embryo for testing.

Blastocyst culture

While embryos are usually transferred anytime between day two and day five as part of IVF or ICSI, pregnancy rates may be improved if they are left in the incubator to develop to their blastocyst stage, when they are five or six days old. A blastocyst has many more cells than an embryo and, because of its longer development, may well be more viable for transfer and pregnancy.

Comprehensive chromosomal testing

New techniques allow us to examine all of the chromosomes and to see if an embryo lacks or has additional chromosomes, a condition called aneuploidy.

Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT)

Previously known as preimplantation genetic screening or PGS, Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) is used to examine abnormalities in the genetics of embryos.

Assisted hatching

Here, an embryologist uses micromanipulation to create a small hole in an embryo’s outer layer, which research has shown gives it a higher chance of implantation during IVF.
