FERTILITY TREATMENT

Purpose designed and built state of the art Surgiclinic Fertility opened its doors in February 2020. It is the only fertility clinic outside of Gauteng, Western Cape, and KwaZulu Natal provinces in South Africa, and serves the broader Mpumalanga, Limpopo, Mozambique, and Swaziland regions.

1 – 2 out of 10 of people around the globe battle to fall pregnant naturally. It comes as no surprise that invitro fertilisation is one of the fastest developing fields of medicine. Some reasons for infertility rates include trying for a baby later in life, unhealthy lifestyles, poor access to healthcare and inadequate access to assisted reproductive techniques. Surgiclinic approaches treatment with sensitivity and intrinsic understanding of the emotional and financial toll the process takes. Its doctors value the intersection of reproductive health with mental preparedness and well-being.

Your gynaecologist will undertake a series of structured and coordinated investigations to understand a patient’s individual cause of infertility, and then develop an individualised treatment plan, that includes instructions, to achieve your family dream.

Treatment options offered include, but are not limited to:

Invitro fertilisation (IVF)

IVF is used to treat infertility caused by a number of factors like for example tubal damage, endometriosis and sperm disorders. In essence the technique is to fertilise an egg with sperm outside the body, followed by transferring the embryo into the uterus.

Embryo, egg, and sperm freezing

These techniques, also known as cryopreservation, are done for various reasons.

Common reasons include medical treatment that is harmful to eggs or sperm (for example in cancer patients), and lifestyle choices that enable preservation of fertility until the patient is ready to start a family.

Egg donation

Depending on circumstances, anonymous or known egg donors may be used. The patient will receive preparation for embryo transfer while the donor undergoes IVF stimulation.

Artificial insemination (AI)

Artificial Insemination brings healthier sperm closer to the egg by placing washed sperm directly inside the uterus.

Sperm donation

Donor sperm is usually indicated in cases where couples have a male fertility problem, same sex couples and single females wishing to start a family.

Reproductive surgery

A range of problems with the reproductive system, like congenital malformation of the uterus or an absent or malformed vagina, can cause difficulty in conceiving. Acquired abnormalities like polyps, fibroids and endometriosis are other common causes. Reproductive surgeries to correct these disorders include hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, and myomectomy.
