Trying To Conceive

Our goal is to help you get pregnant naturally, we want you to know that we are looking at every issue, ticking every box, and even looking outside of the box

— Dr. Jeffrey Persson

It’s always going to be hard when you are trying month after month for a baby, and it isn’t happening. As far as statistics go, it can take on average eight to twelve months to conceive naturally and more often than not, there is typically an impatience to conceive than a true inability to conceive.

It is, of course, very important to look at the full range of factors that might be affecting things across every aspect of your life. Our goal is to help you get pregnant naturally but, even if we are going down the assisted route, we want you to know that we are looking at every issue, ticking every box, and even looking outside of the box.

The most common feeling when you’re trying to conceive is that you don’t have control over when it will happen. But if you are experiencing difficulties, you do have control over the path you take. Our new clients tend to have a few things in common – they have lost patience and direction and are in desperate need of advice. From the very first free consultation, our aim is to offer support and education, and make a plan of action within a set timeframe so you are proactive in the steps you take.

A whole set of factors could impact on your ability to conceive and by looking at the full 360 degree picture we achieve some of the highest success rates in the country for difficult or complex fertility cases.

By assessing all factors we develop a comprehensive plan of action, including appropriate therapies, further medical tests if needed, and within a time frame and price plan that will give you the confidence to carry on and comfort that you are moving forward.

We take great pride when a new patient is recharged with renewed optimism for the journey ahead and we’re always just a call away, every step of the way.


  • Ovulation

    They are the most common causes of fertility issues for women. Poor egg quality, failure to ovulate through hormonal deficiency or imbalance, irregular ovulation and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) are all extremely common. They are often related to age especially since egg quality is known to deteriorate quite dramatically from late thirties onward. After a full assessment, treatment can include IVF, donor eggs and fertility drugs.

  • Womb & Fallopian Tubes

    The Fallopian tubes carry eggs from your ovaries to the womb and can be blocked or damaged preventing any chance of eggs meeting sperm. Treatment here is usually by IVF, but if the problem is a blockage, and it is very localised, then it can be cleared by keyhole surgery.

  • Overall Health & Medication

    Being overweight, smoking, and high alcohol consumption can all have a negative impact on your fertility. Most drugs involved with any type of chemotherapy therapy can cause permanent ovarian failure. Egg freezing is now a widely used preventative measure before undertaking any course of intrusive therapies like chemotherapy.

  • Sperm

    Abnormal or insufficient sperm is the most common cause of male infertility. A normal sample will have approx. 20 million sperm per millilitre with at least half being active. Any count below this could be the cause of the overall problem. Problems with sperm can be difficult to solve but we are seeing an increase in success levels using fertility drugs, particularly in increasing volume.

  • Blocked Tubes

    Either the tubes which store and carry your sperm from your testicles, or the ducts which lead from them and carry sperm can be blocked. If everything else is healthy then a simple procedure to retrieve sperm may be the recommended way forward.

  • Testicles

    The testicles produce and store your sperm. Should they be damaged at any point, this will affect the quality and quantity of the sperm. The causes could be anything from an infection, any testicular operation or even cancer. In this case, it may still be possible to retrieve sperm surgically.
