Following a referral from your GP, treatment is available to you in one of two ways: either NHS funded or self-funded. Both options are, of course, subject to the necessary paperwork and tests to confirm the couples’ suitability for treatment.
Assisted conception encompasses a wide range of treatments from ovulation induction, timed coitus, Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI), Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) and In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF).
The ACU at St Helier has been involved with transport IVF since 1996. Its own on-site laboratory was opened in February 2017 by Professor Lord Robert Winston and Mr RauI Margara. If you are a suitable couple for IVF, your initial consultation will be here at Beginnings. Here you will have the opportunity to discuss issues such as research, freezing of embryos, eggs and sperm, and the embryo transfer itself.
Your follow-up appointment will be with one of the fertility nurses at Beginnings to answer any queries you may have. The fertility nurse will explain the different types of drugs and teach you how to use them.
