Understanding the Journey with Counselling​

Stepping into IVF with donor eggs is a significant decision and therefore counselling is a mandatory part of the process.

Our fertility counsellors are at your side to offer emotional support, helping you understand and embrace this choice with confidence and peace. 


Follow-Up Consultation​

Agreeing on Your Treatment Plan​

Before proceeding any further, we’ll discuss and agree a treatment plan and its associated costs, ensuring clarity and confidence as you move forward.


Nurse Consultation​

A specialized nurse will then guide you through the IVF treatment process, offering more detailed instructions on medication and support for any questions that may arise. 


Pregnancy Test

Approximately 14 days (about 2 weeks) after your embryo transfer you will need to take an at home pregnancy test. This will confirm the results of your treatment.
