Advanced Treatments

Advanced treatments are used when natural conception is unlikely. They involve surgical interventions where different aspects of the fertilisation process are controlled to maximise your chances of conception. Each option has its strengths and weaknesses, and not all will be appropriate in every scenario. Your best options will be highlighted to you during Your Personalised Treatment Plan with Mrs. Gordon.

Each of these options may be offered to you depending on your individual circumstances.


Simple lifestyle changes may help you to improve your chances of conceiving. This includes stopping smoking and reducing alcohol intake. A healthy diet, regular exercise and having intercourse every two to three days around the time of ovulation also optimise your chance of pregnancy.



BFC is one of the few fertility clinics that may recommend fertility medications and tubal flushing (HyCoSy) before exploring surgical options (if clinically appropriate).

This is not only because these are cheaper and less invasive interventions. Evidence shows that these treatments may be all that is needed for some to naturally conceive.



These include an array of surgical interventions:

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Surgical Sperm Recovery (SSR)
Donor Treatment
Fertility Preservation

Each of these options are offered in differing circumstances.
