Service summary


If you're having problems getting pregnant, see your GP. They will look at your medical history and give you a physical examination. They may also recommend some lifestyle changes to help fertility. Unless there are reasons that may put you at high risk of infertility, such as cancer treatment, you'll usually only be considered for infertility investigations and treatment if you've been trying for a baby for at least a year without becoming pregnant. If appropriate, your GP can refer you to a fertility specialist at an NHS hospital or fertility clinic. Having IVF can be emotionally and physically draining, but help and support is available if you need it. Your fertility clinic will offer you an opportunity to talk to a counsellor, and you may find it useful to join a fertility support group or online forum for support.
