If you're having difficulty falling pregnant you are by no means alone. As many as one in six couples experience difficulty or delay in conceiving. Infertility is simply a symptom, the causes of infertility are numerous, and they vary from simple issues to more complex disorders.
We strongly believe that identifying the specific barrier to conception is of paramount importance. Not only to give you clarity, but also because the earlier you commence treatment the higher are your chances of success. The first step is to make an appointment with our fertility specialist. Both husband and wife should attend the appointment. If you have had tests done previously, or had treatment elsewhere, bring along all the information and results.
At your first meeting, following the consultation we will organize any tests that are needed. We will advice you about the choices available and help you decide which treatment is most suitable for you. Once you've decided to go ahead with treatment, you will be explained in detail about the various steps involved in your treatment cycle and what to expect.

We understand that couples experience grief, anger, isolation, fear and helplessness after repeated miscarriages. Recurrent miscarriage is defined by two or more failed pregnancies. As many as 1 in 100 couples experience three or more miscarriage. Couples who experience recurrent pregnancy loss may benefit from a medical evaluation and psychological support.
We evaluate for various causes such as genetic disorders, uterine abnormalities, hormonal abnormalities, metabolic abnormalities, anti-phospholipid syndrome and thrombophilias among others.
We offer treatment according to the underlying cause. It will comfort to know that the next pregnancy is successful in 60% to 70% of those with unexplained recurrent pregnancy losses. Additionally, a healthy lifestyle and folic acid supplementation is recommended before attempting another pregnancy. Smoking cessation, reduced alcohol and caffeine consumption, moderate exercise and weight control may all be of benefit.
