We choose to offer these as standard – not just as optional extras for those that can afford to pay more – because we believe they represent current best practice in IVF and offer you the best possible chance of success. At present, this includes the use of the EmbryoScope time-lapse system, sequential media and EmbryoGlue to aid the development, selection and transfer of embryos during IVF. We also routinely use egg spindle visualisation for all ICSI procedures to help us assess whether an egg is in optimal condition for fertilisation. We do not think of these techniques as ‘add-ons’ but as our standard of care. As such, they are included in our normal cycle fees for IVF or ICSI and do not incur additional costs.

A microscopic imaging system for assessing if an egg is in optimal condition for fertilisation via ICSI.
Our fertility specialists take the time to uncover the cause of your fertility issues before helping you understand the fertility treatment options available to you. This may include relatively simple measures such as ovulation tracking and fertility optimisation, or fertility treatments that offer a greater helping hand, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
