Pride Life Magazine - - SPONSORED FEATURE -

WHY CHOOSE US? We treat both NHS and pri­vate pa­tients and have great suc­cess rates. We of­fer a com­bi­na­tion of time-lapse tech­nol­ogy (Em­bry­oS­cope), Em­bry­oGlue and Blas­to­cyst Trans­fer as part of your treat­ment. This makes a real dif­fer­ence to your chance of be­com­ing preg­nant and we are the only cen­tre in Lon­don to do this at no ex­tra cost.

Es­tab­lished in 1983 as King’s As­sisted Con­cep­tion Unit, we were one of the first fer­til­ity ser­vices in the UK to of­fer treat­ment to help mem­bers of the LGBT com­mu­nity have fam­i­lies, and we are very proud to have been a pi­o­neer in this field.

In 2015 we be­gan an ex­cit­ing new part­ner­ship with the Hewitt Fer­til­ity Cen­tre, Liverpool. The Hewitt Liverpool was the first cen­tre in Europe to of­fer time-lapse tech­nol­ogy (Em­bry­oS­cope) to all pa­tients, in­clud­ing peo­ple funded via the NHS, at no ex­tra cost. This ap­proach led to some of the best IVF preg­nancy rates in Europe and we are proud to now of­fer this same treat­ment at King’s Hewitt Fer­til­ity Cen­tre, Lon­don. It has helped us, in a short pe­riod of time, to pro­duce suc­cess rates that are com­pa­ra­ble with the very best in the UK.

But this is just the start. Ev­ery day we are im­prov­ing your chance of a suc­cess­ful preg­nancy, be­cause we in­vest in the lat­est ev­i­dence-based tech­nol­ogy and our clin­i­cians are some of the very best in the coun­try.

In early 2016 we are mov­ing our con­sul­ta­tion and di­ag­nos­tics to the Fe­tal Medicine In­sti­tute, Cam­ber­well, just a few hun­dred yards from our main treat­ment site. This state-of-the-art cen­tre has the very lat­est fa­cil­i­ties and is a bright, mod­ern and wel­com­ing set­ting for you to start your fer­til­ity treat­ment. DONOR OP­TIONS We have a range of donor op­tions in­clud­ing donor sperm and donor eggs. Our highly ex­pe­ri­enced and com­pas­sion­ate doc­tors, nurses and coun­sel­lors will sup­port you in mak­ing de­ci­sions about your treat­ment that you are com­fort­able with. SIN­GLE WOMEN Treat­ment for sin­gle women may in­clude in­trauter­ine in­sem­i­na­tion (IUI) or in-vitro fer­til­i­sa­tion (IVF). Be­fore treat­ment, you will have some di­ag­nos­tic tests and a con­sul­ta­tion with one of our doc­tors, to as­sess the like­li­hood of you con­ceiv­ing. We will then ad­vise which treat­ment will give you the best chance of a suc­cess­ful preg­nancy. LES­BIAN COU­PLES We of­fer fe­male cou­ples a range of op­tions. Fol­low­ing your clin­i­cal as­sess­ment we can pro­vide you with the rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion and sup­port to en­able you to de­cide which part­ner to se­lect eggs from and to make a de­ci­sion about which part­ner will carry your preg­nancy.

We of­fer donor sperm treat­ment, and if there is a prob­lem with us­ing your eggs, you can also have IVF treat­ment us­ing donor eggs. GAY COU­PLES Male cou­ples can start a fam­ily with donor eggs, their own sperm and a sur­ro­gate to carry the preg­nancy. The chances of a suc­cess­ful preg­nancy de­pend on re­pro­duc­tive health of the sur­ro­gate.
