Before you start any kind of fertility treatment it is important to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident with the environment you will receive treatment in and the team that will support you.
To help you make this decision, at CREATE Fertility we run monthly, free open days allowing you to meet the team and find out more about our services before you commit to treatment.
Our open days are open to anyone who wants to find out more about fertility or Natural and Mild IVF.
If there isn’t an event at a convenient time for you please contact us to arrange an initial consultation.
A standard agenda for an open day is as follows:
Tickets are free but numbers are limited to enable us to give you the best possible attention so please register to book your place.
I am very happy that I came to CREATE Fertility. I do believe God guided me to be treated there by very nice doctors and staff. I am 46 years old, 20 weeks pregnant and everything is normal. I do think women should be given an opportunity to try IVF and CREATE gives this chance to many women who would be refused by other doctors.
We started researching fertility clinics in 2009 as we had both always wanted children. At first we started treatment with another clinic and had our first daughter through them.
I gave birth to our first child and we had planned for my wife to have our second. Although she’s very healthy, when we started treatment, we discovered that she had some very complex issues which we didn’t expect.
Undergoing IVF can be a roller-coaster experience, but can also be a rewarding one once you find the treatment that’s right for you. Here Carla, a businesswoman from London tells her IVF story.
‘After marrying my husband James 4 years ago we decided that we wanted to start a family, and I came off the pill straight away. I was told that my periods might take a little while to resume, but after 6 months had passed and they still hadn’t started I began to get worried. James and I went to get tested at our local NHS hospital, and initially the doctors could fine nothing wrong; my fallopian tubes and ovaries looked entirely normal. However, an AMH blood test revealed that my ovarian reserve was low, with an AMH of just 4.0. Being only in my early 30s, this came as a shock. We also discovered that James’ sperm count was low on a few parameters.
When I was 33, I had just come out of a relationship and started becoming concerned that I was no longer in a position to have children. I have always wanted children, so I wanted to know what my options were. I did some research, came across CREATE and decided to go along to one of their open days to find out more information.
My husband and I had been trying to have children for 18 months. When nothing had happened, I went to my GP and was advised to keep trying naturally for a while longer. We did but still nothing happened. I had some basic tests and we were quite quickly put into the category of ‘unexplained infertility.’ That was the moment when we realised we had an issue.
I went to CREATE and further tests showed I had polycystic ovaries. I wasn’t surprised because my sister has it and I had some of the associated symptoms. However, because the scans through the GP hadn’t discovered it, I thought it had been ruled out. So when CREATE identified the issue very clearly we had an explanation for our problems. Further scans also showed that I had issues with the blood circulation around my uterus.
