Fertility treatments

At TFP Nurture Fertility, we offer many different kinds of treatment, from conventional IVF, to fertility preservation, egg and sperm donation and surrogacy.

This section describes the treatments, outlining when you might use them and what will happen if you do.

In-vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF treatment requires more eggs than in a natural cycle so the ovaries are stimulated to increase the number of mature eggs available for fertilisation. The eggs are collected from the ovaries using ultrasound guidance. The sperm from the partner or a donor are specially prepared and mixed with the eggs in the laboratory to allow fertilisation to occur.


Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

ICSI treatment involves the injection of a single sperm directly into each egg. The treatment before and after ICSI is identical to the conventional IVF cycle. As only a small number of sperm are required for ICSI it is appropriate where the man has low numbers of normal, motile sperm.


Natural cycle IVF

Natural Cycle IVF is IVF treatment without the use of stimulation drugs. During the Natural Cycle IVF, only the follicles naturally formed during the menstrual cycle are used for treatment. In most cases, one follicle forms and therefore one egg is used for treatment.

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI)

Artificial insemination requires a fresh or frozen sample of sperm to be available on the day of insemination. The semen is prepared and concentrated prior to placement in the uterus using a fine catheter (intra-uterine insemination).


Frozen embryo transfer

Additional embryos from your IVF treatment can be frozen for future use. Frozen cycles allow you to use these previously stored embryos.

Surgical Sperm Retrieval (SSR)

Before IVF treatment begins, we carry out a semen analysis. Some men have sperm being manufactured in their testes, but not present in ejaculate when the semen is analysed. The problem can be caused by a blockage, or reduced sperm production. In these cases, we can collect sperm via surgical sperm retrieval. We can also use this method to collect sperm for men who have previously had a vasectomy, or a failed vasectomy reversal.

TFP donor bank

People struggle to have children for many different reasons. By donating your sperm, you’ll be giving them the chance to conceive the child they’ve always wanted.


We offer additional services

As well as fertility-related treatments and services, we also offer additional services such as blastocyst culture, endometrial scratch and assisted hatching.


Egg share scheme

TFP Nurture Fertility runs a very successful egg share scheme. Egg sharing allows patients who have a normal ovarian reserve to have IVF/ICSI treatment, and in the process, donate some of their eggs to someone who doesn’t produce good quality eggs of their own.
