Clinical Advice and Results Explained
We help you to understand your medical history & coordinate tests & treatments that are appropriate for you (rather than paying for tests you may not need!).
We ensure that your fertility treatment will give you the best possible outcome.
We support you throughout your fertility journey.
SECURELY PRESERVING SPERM
We safely maintain sperm at ultracool minus 196 C your future use.
Keep as a back-up for the future if you have to go overseas.
Preserve your fertility if there is a risk that could stop sperm production such as chemotherapy, surgery, vasectomy or gender reassignment therapy.
As a back-up to ensure that you have sperm available on on the day of your partner's treatment
For British Armed Forces, as an insurance policy to ensure your sperm is safely maintained in a UK licensed bank
WE PROVIDE SEMEN ANALYSIS WITH SAME DAY RESULTS!
We report how many sperm are present & how healthy they are.
What we do:
We look at how many sperm are in an ejaculate (count), how they swim (motility), their shape (morphology) & if there are any anti-sperm antibodies.
We provide results on the same day as the test, explaining what they mean, & answering any questions so you have a clear understanding of your fertility potential.
SPERM DNA FRAGMENTATION
High sperm DNA fragmentation has been linked to a higher risk of miscarriage.
Fragmentation of sperm DNA reduces the sperm quality and therefore reduces the chance of a successful natural pregnancy. Sperm DNA integrity may start to decrease from the age of 35 years. We send your sample to a specialist lab for this test and provide you with a full explanation of the results.
Sperm Oxidative Stress (SOS) testing is performed on-site with same-day results. High levels of oxidative stress may adversely affect sperm quality, even with a normal semen analysis is normal. We measure the static oxidation-reduction potential (sORP) to inform you if this may be affecting your chance of conceiving.
If you have ever injured your testes, your immune system may produce antibodies against your sperm. If you have antisperm antibodies, this can reduce the chance of your sperm fertilising an egg.
Post Vasectomy Check
We offer on-site production & same-day reports to tell you if you still have sperm after your vasectomy & if they are swimming.
You need at least 12 weeks post-op & 20 ejaculations.
Hormone & Screening Tests
Hormone tests can be used to determine the ovarian reserve, ovulation & fertility.
We offer all blood tests.
Popular tests include:
- Thyroid Function Tests
- HIV, Hepatitis B & C
Donor Insemination (DI)
Our insemination treatments are carried out by female nurses in a private treatment room.
A high concentration of washed fast swimming sperm is carefully introduced into the womb just before ovulation. This improves the chances of a single sperm meeting the egg.
DI treatment provides highly fertile donor sperm for insemination. We only use highly fertile sperm donors and all our sperm donors are fully screened to ensure your safety.
Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT)
Once you are pregnant, you may wish to check the genetic health of your baby & avoid amniocentesis.
NIPT is a simple blood check for:
- Down's syndrome
- Edwards syndrome
- Patau syndrome
NIPT is a safe, easy & reliable test performed at just 10 weeks pregnancy.
Just as a traditional MOT looks at how roadworthy a car is, a fertility MOT look at how fertile you are, both individually or as a couple. These tests help us to understand how fertile. Our fertility MOT includes initial checks for ovarian reserve, (via AMH), male fertility (via a semen analysis) and an initial consultation
We can test for all sexually transmitted infections (STIs) with our private, discrete and confidential service, with next day results for most tests
An initial consultation allows us to review your situation and any reports, to advise you on the treatment that will most likely result in a successful live birth. We ensure you are fully informed to make the best choices
