What are your treatment options?

IVF - During IVF, a woman’s eggs are collected from her ovaries and fertilised with sperm in the laboratory. Any embryos created in this process, will later be placed back into the womb to grow and develop. If you need donor sperm to complete your family we can help. 

Egg Freezing - Some women are not ready to have a baby but wish to preserve their fertility for the future. Freezing your eggs is a method of preserving your fertility and improving your chances of having a baby later in life. 

Egg Sharing - Sharing your eggs means donating half of the eggs collected in your IVF cycle to another woman who cannot conceive with her own eggs.

The female having treatment needs a 'normal' or 'good' ovarian reserve, an AMH above 10 is a good indicator.

If you meet these three criteria, we can book you in for your ultrasound scan & consultation. There are some complex medical conditions that could mean you are not eligible for treatment at abc ivf due to our simplified treatment. Your abc clinician will be able to explain if you’re eligible for our treatment after your initial scan and consultation.

Watch Agnieszka's interview

"I decided to be a single mother mainly due to my age. I hadn’t found a partner and couldn’t wait any longer but I have always wanted to become a mother so I decided to go through IVF treatment on my own. Being a single mother isn’t easy but its very rewarding. For me, it’s been an amazing journey. If you are 100% sure you want to be a mother, just go for it. I promise you’ll never regret it."

Louise's IVF Story

"I have always wanted a baby but I have never really been the type to be in a relationship. I don’t have or want a partner, but I knew that I couldn’t afford IVF treatment because it is very expensive, so I had just accepted that I might never be a mum.

I did do some research around the different options available to single women who want to have a baby and also spoke to my doctor about it. He had suggested IUI as it is the most affordable option, but then I came across abc ivf's website and the rest is history."

Frequently asked questions

The first step to starting treatment at our clinic is to book an Initial Consultation and Scan. This is a 45 minute appointment with a specialist Nurse Consultant.

The first part of the appointment includes an advanced Pelvic Assessment Scan which will help us assess your egg reserve, the health of your uterus, endometrium (lining of the womb), ovaries and follicles.

You will then have a consultation with your Consultant who will explain your results, discuss your medical history, answer any questions you may have and talk you through your individualised treatment plan.

If you are ready to go ahead, you can start treatment as soon as your next menstrual cycle.

We work with only recognised and licensed donor banks to provide the best quality sperm. All sperm donors have to be in good health and are screened for sexually transmitted diseases and some genetic disorders. The sperm is assessed as high quality before being approved for donation.

CREATE Fertility Sperm Bank offer international sperm and provide FREE shipping between our clinics.

We also work in partnership with the Cryos International Sperm Bank and the European Sperm Bank where you can access their donor bank and order sperm direct with them.

Generally, there isn’t a waiting list, but it depends on your situation because there is currently a shortage of sperm from BAME communities.

The information you will be able to find out is:

  • a physical description (height, weight, eye and hair colour)
  • the year and country of birth
  • their ethnicity
  • whether they had any children at the time of donation, how many and their gender
  • their marital status
  • their medical history
  • a personal description and goodwill message to any potential children (if they chose to write one at the time of their donation).

You won’t be able to find out any information that might reveal who the donor is.

If a child is conceived via the sperm donation, they have the option to contact the clinic when they turn 18 for information on the identity of the donor.
