Fertility treatments

For many Australian couples, the journey to parenthood does not always happen as quickly as they expect.

Following some routine tests and investigations, your fertility specialist can formulate a personalised treatment plan with you, beginning, where possible with the simplest most natural options.

At IVF Australia, you’ll have the support of experienced local fertility specialists with access to the most advanced science and effective fertility treatments available in the world. We’re dedicated to giving you the best possible chance of having a baby.

We offer a wide variety of fertility treatments ranging from the very simple to the more complex including:

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

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

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.

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.

Surgery may be required to further investigate or treat conditions making it difficult for you to conceive such as endometriosis or fibroids for women, or to surgically retrieve sperm.

As part of our parent group, IVF Australia invests extensively in scientific research to improve knowledge of IVF and, consequently, outcomes for our patients.

A new artificial intelligence system, called Ivy, to predict the likelihood of a viable pregnancy from transfer of an individual embryo in a woman undergoing IVF.

Assisted hatching involves using a laser to gently thin the outer shell of the egg (called the zona). If the embryo can ‘hatch’ out of the shell more easily, it may have a better chance of implanting inside the uterus.

PolScope or Oosight Technology is an advanced scientific technique that uses polarised light to study the genetic material in the egg and help identify which eggs may have a better chance of implanting.

Using high resolution and high magnification digital enlargement technology, our scientists can enlarge images of sperm to over 7300x magnification compared to the standard 200-400x, here the scientist can select the most appropriate sperm to be injected into the egg.
