Taking the first steps or considering your options for fertility treatment can be extremely overwhelming. Therefore we hope to simplify and explain the information so that you feel more in control and informed to assist in decision making.
You have just had your meet and greet appointment with one of our fertility nurses and have been sent information regarding our different treatment options and cost overview. The following is some important information regarding getting started or learning more about your options:
Choose one of our Fertility Specialist
In order to see one of our Fertility Doctors, you will need two referrals from your GP/local doctor. One referral is for the female and the other for the partner (if applicable). Following your meet and greet appointment we provide your GP with information regarding the required screening tests needed to assist your fertility specialist when you have your appointment with them.
Fertility Treatment Options
At your appointment the nurse may have discussed the different treatment options available at our clinics. We offer Bulk Billed*, Low Cost IVF, Fully Customised and Donor treatments. Your specialist will discuss with you the most suitable options for your situation and circumstances. It is important to understand the basic science behind embryo development to also assist in your decision making. Particularly the difference between an embryo transferred at Day 2/3 (Cleavage) vs Day 5/6 (Blastocyst).
How can Female Age Impact Treatment
Female age can impact the outcome of fertility treatment. If you are under the age of 35 and have been trying to conceive for at least 12 months, or over 35 and trying to conceive for at least 6 months, it is recommended that you seek assistance.
Preconception planning is an important subject when it come to your fertility journey. There are many LIFESTYLE FACTORS that you have control over that can help improve your chances of success. Some may require changes by both yourself and your partner to improve the likelihood of fertility treatment success. One factor that can be very important is your weight. Your weight has a direct relationship with pregnancy rates. In fact, pregnancy rates of women at a normal weight is almost double that of obese women.
Fertility Solutions is always looking for ways to help our patients achieve their dream of having a baby. Therefore, we work with the The IVF Project to offer our patients access to discounted membership to their individual exercise and nutritional plans . Our joint mission is to help our female and male patients access preconception and fertility care that can identify risks and improve health prior to pregnancy.

Financing Options for Fertility Treatment
Costs vary per cycle type which will be determined by your fertility specialist. We recognise that it can be difficult for some to find money for their fertility treatments and feel that money should not dictate whether you can start or extend your family. That is why we have partnered with ZipMoney who are able to offer flexible terms and interest free payments. Patients can access up to a $15,000 Zip Money account limit. (conditions apply).
