There are many reasons why you and your husband may be having difficulty conceiving. If you’ve been trying for two years, with no success – you should see a general physician, who will be able to help arrange some simple tests. However, if you’ve been trying for two years or more, it’s best to come to us.


Infertility can be categorized two types: Primary and Secondary. Primary infertility covers around 40% of cases, and is when a couple have never conceived; whereas Secondary Infertility covers the remaining cases and is when a couple have conceived before, but are having difficulty the next time round.


If we think you may be infertile, our specialist team of doctors and dedicated infertility nurses can run some tests at our very own Fertility Clinic. For women, we can perform blood tests to check your hormone levels, to make sure ovulation is taking place, ultrasound scan of your womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries. For men, we’ll need a semen sample, which we will test to count numbers of sperm and any other sperm abnormalities. Help to get yourself fit and healthy for your journey, also help to improve your fertility chances through lifestyle changes and medication.
