There can be many reasons for not being able to conceive, but often there are various factors. TFP conducts an extensive patient interview and diagnostic testing in our fertility clinics to tailor your fertility treatment to you.
If there is indeed a fertility disorder present in one or both partners, modern reproductive medicine offers various treatment options. The experienced team at TFP fertility clinic will recommend the best treatment or therapy for your individual situation. For more information about the types of fertility treatments available at our clinics, see the list below.
In IVF, mature eggs are retrieved from the woman following hormonal stimulation and brought together with about 50,000 processed sperm from the partner. Fertilisation of the eggs takes place outside the body, but of its own accord. If fertilisation is successful, then usually an embryo (two in some cases) is transferred to the uterus after 2–5 days.
If the quality or number of suitable sperm is too low for a successful IVF procedure, the eggs obtained following hormonal stimulation can be fertilised in the laboratory by means of microinjection using one sperm cell each. The resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus, just as in IVF treatment.
If the chances of success of IVF are low because the number of suitable sperm is too low, the eggs obtained following hormonal stimulation can be fertilised in the laboratory by means of microinjection using one sperm cell each. The resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus, just like in IVF.
If there are no fertile sperm in the man's ejaculate, sperm may be able to be harvested from the testicular tissue (TESE) or the from the epididymis, where the sperm is stored (PESA). This sperm may then be used for fertility treatment via ICSI.
Our aim is to provide you with fast access to your fertility status, allowing you to make an informed and empowered choice about your fertility options. We offer a complete range of fertility assessment packages and infertility investigations in our clinics.
Egg or sperm donation can be the only chance of a baby for thousands of people. However, using a donor is a major decision and should not be taken lightly. You should take your time to think about whether or not becoming a donor is the right decision for you.
As part of your consultation and diagnosis, our clinics perform a semen analysis. Male-centred issues such as blockages, reduced sperm production, a previous vasectomy or a failed vasectomy reversal can be overcome by carrying out collection via surgical sperm retrieval.
Unused embryos from your IVF treatment can be frozen for future use, depending on their quality, meaning that you don’t need to go through a potentially intensive egg collection cycle when you would like to try for a baby. These embryos can be used for future pregnancies, and recent studies have shown there is no difference in pregnancy rates between frozen and fresh embryos. In fact, a FET may have a higher success rate.
We know that one of the best indicators for a successful pregnancy is the age of the mother, or rather, her eggs. Vitrification technology means we can safely freeze eggs before storing them for later use. It’s worth noting that the eggs will be linked to a woman’s age when they were frozen, and pregnancy success rates will show a correlation. Additionally, we can also freeze sperm for fertility preservation, such as in cases of medical procedures.
Vitrification involves much more rapid cooling than other less advanced methods of freezing, and it prevents ice crystals from forming. This preserves the quality of the cells and improves the chances of success when they are thawed.
Harmony Testing is risk-free, non-invasive prenatal testing carried out after 10 weeks of pregnancy and consists of a blood test that analyses DNA from the foetus that circulates in the mother’s blood.
IVM is suitable for women who want to avoid the use of fertility drugs, often due to an existing medical condition. The main difference between IVF and IVM is that in IVM, immature eggs are collected and grown in a laboratory before being fertilised and inserted into the womb.
IVF and ICSI can be very successful treatment methods. However, some cycles don’t finish with successful implantation, even after a number of transfers with apparently good embryos. Also, sometimes a cycle achieves a conception, but the pregnancy doesn’t develop to term. If you’d like to talk about your options after an implantation failure or miscarriage, we’re here to help.
As well as fertility-related treatments and services, we also offer additional services such as blastocyst culture, endometrial scratch and assisted hatching.
