Our Fertility Treatments

We provide a range of fertility treatment options that are tailored for your needs. Learn more about our fertility treatments below and get in touch with Dr Kokum to find out how we can assist you on your fertility journey.

Female Fertility

Fertility treatments for women can address a number of different reproductive health issues. Our female fertility treatments may address and treat any of the following: age and infertility, secondary infertility, premature menopause, irregular periods, blocked fallopian tubes. endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and recurrent miscarriages.

Male Fertility

Male fertility treatments involve a medical history assessment, blood work, sperm testing, and other physical examinations to determine the cause of infertility in men. Male fertility tests are able to check key infertility factors in men which mainly include low production of sperm, abnormally shaped sperm that do not move optimally, and any blockage in the male reproductive tract.

Donor Program

Our Donor Program provides options for couples or individuals to use a sperm donor, donor eggs, donor embryos, and/or a surrogate for pregnancy. Find more information about our donor program here and by getting in touch.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) involves using technology to place sperm in a woman’s uterus, giving the sperm higher chances of reaching the eggs for successful fertilisation.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF is where fertilization happens in the laboratory and outside the female body. This involves stimulation the ovaries with FSH injections and collecting eggs through a transvaginal approach under sedation. Using standard IVF (simply mixing eggs and sperm together) or using ICSI (injecting sperm inside the eggs) will depend on the sperm quality. Embryos then develop into blastocyst stage (in the embryoscope) while being monitored continuously without any external disturbance.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is an additional part within the IVF treatment process. ICSI involves using technology to inject a single sperm into an egg and help it enter or start fertilisation.

Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT)

Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) involves assessing the quality of embryos and finding the most suitable ones for transferring during IVF treatment. PGT involves checking embryos for conditions such as genetic diseases and chromosomal disorders.

Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is a hormone therapy that stimulates your ovaries to release eggs and increase the chances of fertilisation when in contact with sperm. Women with irregular cycles who have been unable to conceive may be able to consider ovulation induction to increase their chances of pregnancy.

Cycle Tracking

Cycle tracking involves close monitoring of a woman’s hormone levels to determine the optimal time frame that will yield the highest chances of a successful pregnancy. This involves outlining the peak periods of ovulation, otherwise known as the ‘fertile window’ period.
