Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned, and when you’re faced with having fertility treatment, it can be an anxious and stressful time.
We don’t believe in one size fits all. Our individualised treatment plans are designed for each and every patient, ensuring we give you the options you deserve to build a family.
We don’t want you to go through extensive unnecessary treatment, so instead we consider every patient at a holistic level.
This means when you choose to have IVF at The Evewell, you’ll have an individualised plan designed around your specific fertility history and current situation.
We’re experts in our field with proven results, and one thing that sets us apart from other clinics is that all our consultants offer a unique combination of both gynaecology and fertility, meaning we understand the female body completely and work with you to find the easiest, least invasive and quickest way to achieve a pregnancy.
Even though each patient has a dedicated consultant, you’ll benefit from the knowledge of our entire team.
Our daily ‘all hands’ meetings are where all consultants come together to review each patient in cycle.
This includes the embryologists, nurses and patient care team, so you’ll benefit from a wealth of combined knowledge and input.
An IVF cycle takes around one month from the day you start taking medication to your pregnancy test. It includes ovarian stimulation monitoring, egg collection, sperm preparation, fertilisation and culture of the embryos, and an embryo transfer procedure.
Once you’ve met with your consultant and decided if IVF is the preferred and quickest way to achieve a pregnancy for you, we design an individualised treatment plan to deliver the best possible results for you.
During this stage, you’ll also spend time with one of our specialist fertility nurses, who will guide you through your treatment plan and one of our embryologists, to ask any questions about the IVF process.
We do everything we can to work around your life and your cycle. Meaning, only when you’re ready, your IVF treatment will start.
This means no extra hormonal medication to align your cycle with our schedules, we just ask for you to call us when your period starts. This might mean more work for us, but it means less stress on your body.
Once you start your stimulation injections, you’ll likely meet with your consultant at least twice during the stimulation phase.
And even though you have one consultant, you benefit from the entire team’s experience and knowledge when they review your progress at our daily ‘All Hands’ meeting.
During this meeting, we make any necessary adjustments to treatment plans or medication, ensuring fully comprehensive medical care.
Wherever possible, your consultant will perform your egg collection, working closely with the embryology team, who will be fully involved in your journey.
Our lab team are a vital part of The Evewell. With a unique combination of expertise not only in embryology but also embryo genetics.
This integral team has a fundamental understanding of the whole reproduction process from beginning to end, giving them a particular edge when understanding and treating fertility issues.
Prior to your egg collection, you will have agreed the best plan of action regarding your embryo transfer, including investigative tests to help maximise your chances of pregnancy.
You’ll be asked to attend the clinic and will be made as comfortable as possible for the procedure, which is usually over in half an hour.
Approximately two-weeks after, it’ll be time to do your pregnancy test. We know first-hand how difficult the two-week wait is, so we are always on hand for support.
We know that fertility treatments are not only an emotional commitment but also a financial one too, and with the ultimate goal of finding the quickest, easiest, and least invasive way to get you pregnant, we’ve made sure our prices are competitive.
We always recommend to patients that when comparing prices between clinics they ensure that they have prices for all the elements that a clinic expects a patient to pay for.
Contact one of our Patient Services team today to further discuss treatment costs.
The egg collection procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. After the procedure is completed, you’ll be transferred to the recovery room. The total time required to be in the clinic is around two hours.
You’ll be sedated during the procedure, so you won’t feel anything, and will be given painkillers to help with any pain immediately after. If you have any ongoing pain, which will mostly feel like period pain, you will be advised to take paracetamol and rest for the remainder of the day.
If you decide to freeze your embryos, either as part of a ‘freeze all’, a PGT-A or a fertility preservation procedure, these will be cryogenically preserved and can be stored for a maximum of 55 years.
We advise taking a pregnancy test 12-days after your embryo transfer. This “Two Week Wait” can be difficult, and we appreciate a very anxious time. We have a Support area on this website with advice as to how to get through this difficult time.
This is dependent on your medical situation, and any previous fertility treatment. We recommend speaking to your consultant for their advice.
