Fertility Treatments & Procedures

If you require fertility treatment, we know that many couples would prefer to start with the simplest treatment first. At Melbourne IVF, you will have your choice of fertility specialist who will work with you to develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with, and support you on your path to pregnancy.

A simple treatment that uses medication to help stimulate your hormones and encourage ovulation.

A simple process that can help you identify which days you’re most fertile to give you the best chance of conceiving naturally.

A technique that involves inserting prepared sperm into the female’s uterus close to the time of ovulation. 

After a course of ovarian stimulation, eggs are collected from the ovaries and fertilised with sperm in a laboratory. One of the resulting embryos is then transferred back into the uterus.

A different, more sophisticated form of IVF where the scientist injects a single sperm into the egg to assist fertilisation. This technique is an excellent treatment if the sperm is of poor quality.

Intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection (IMSI) is a technique used in IVF treatment to examine and select sperm using a high-magnification digital imaging microscope for microinjection into the egg.

Any additional embryos created from an IVF cycle can be frozen and stored for future use. These embryos can then be thawed and transferred if more than one treatment cycle is needed.

After an initial assessment your fertility specialist may recommend surgery, either to investigate the cause of infertility or to treat problems that are making it difficult for you to conceive.
