Bristol Fertility Clinic – IVF, Male Infertility
One in six couples experience problems in conceiving, so you are not alone. However, your experience is always personal and your care should reflect your own individual circumstances. It is with this understanding of both the physical and emotional elements involved in fertility that I base my holistic, comprehensive and evidence based advice and treatment. The aim is to work together, at your pace, to agree a pathway of care and treatment that suits your individual needs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE FIRST CONSULTATION?
You will have an hour long initial consultation as it will involve full medical history including life style, examination, discussion of any test results, individual prognosis in your case and management options available to you. It is important that we understand all the factors that may be affecting you so that we can formulate an effective treatment plan.
You will be asked questions on the following topics:
- How long you have been trying to get pregnant
- Menstrual History
- Medical History
- Sexual History
- Family History
- Lifestyle factors, including intake of caffeine, alcohol, smoking and your weight/BMI
- Any medications and allergies
We will then review all the blood tests that you have brought along with you and any semen analysis results, if appropriate. We will also perform a pelvic ultrasound scan within the consultation room to get a clearer understanding of the function of your uterus and ovaries.
We can discuss any questions you may have and plan the next steps forward that are right for you.
WHAT IS OVARIAN RESERVE?A woman’s ovaries contain her lifetime supply of eggs. When she is younger, there are more eggs available than when she is older. Menopause is reached when her supply of eggs is exhausted. Ovarian reserve is an indirect estimate of the number of egg sacs available at any point in a woman’s reproductive life.
While ovarian reserve can tell us about the numbers of eggs within the ovary, it does not always inform us about their quality and hence their ability to lead to a pregnancy.
