Infertility

At the Surrey Park Clinic we understand that infertility and recurring miscarriage can be frustrating and distressing for those involved. Diagnostic infertility tests help couples who are having problems conceiving, including internal tests to check for blocked tubes, ovulation tests and ultrasound scans of the pelvis to check for any abnormalities.

Before any testing is carried out, it is important that a detailed medical history is taken by one of our specialists. Should the need for fertility treatment arise, we offer a unique consultant led service with a team of highly experienced fertility specialists and we work closely with the Fertility Unit at The Guy’s Hospital, ACU to provide seamless, high-quality care throughout your treatment.

Patients requesting advice or management of fertility are seen by a team of highly qualified Consultants – Mr Nick Elkington, Mr Emmanuel Kalu & Ms Natally Atalla.

IVF Open Evenings Surrey

Around 15% of couples of reproductive age have difficulty in conceiving which can be due to one of several reasons:

  • Problems with egg production including Polycystic Ovaries
  • Problems with sperm production
  • Fallopian tube blockage or uterine problems
  • Endometriosis
  • Implantation of the embryo and miscarriage
  • Hormonal and immune disorders in both men and women

In addition, infertility in women is also linked to their age, the biggest decrease in fertility begins during a woman’s mid thirties.

Ideally both partners in the relationship should attend the initial consultation though you can be seen separately. Initial investigations include assessment of both partners. Women require blood tests and an ultrasound including assessment of their fallopian tubes with a HyCoSy or Hysterosalpingogram (HSG). Men require assessment of their semen (semen analysis) and possibly some blood tests.

Once the results of these fertility tests are available your consultant will advise couples on what type of fertility treatment may be indicated. Sometimes couples will be encouraged to continue to try and conceive naturally before embarking on fertility treatment.
