Your Guide to IVF
I've supported many individuals & couples on their IVF journeys, with each for different reasons. I have patients come to me because the next step in their fertility journey is IVF after not being able to conceive naturally for some time. For others, their fertility specialist may have referred them to me to spend some time on getting their health right before trying another cycle to improve their outcomes. Some have sperm abnormalities, Endometriosis, PCOS, Fallopian tube blockages, history of recurrent miscarriage, have been unsuccessful with IUI, diagnosed with unexplained infertility, or are a same-sex couple or individual trying to conceive using donor sperm. Whatever the reason, IVF is a whole new world of acronyms, drugs, timelines, cycle monitoring with blood tests & pelvic ultrasounds, & if you have not been through it before, can be challenging to get your head around - & there's a myriad of ways in which I can help you. Not only to optimise your outcomes, but hold space for you along the way as you navigate this new world.
