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.

Thank you for designing an excellent protocol for us

My husband and I went for our initial consultation towards the end of last year. We had a history of two ICSIs without fresh transfer, and 3 frozen transfers, only one of which led to a clinical pregnancy followed by a miscarriage at 9 weeks.

We started our first Mild IVF cycle at St. Paul’s in the beginning of February and we have just had a fresh embryo transfer, so we do not yet know the outcome of this cycle. However, we wanted to pause and say thank you at this stage for designing an excellent protocol for us, and to express our appreciation of the whole clinical and nursing team. Our experience with all of the clinical staff has been excellent.

IVF is a horrible process but your team and the protocol you designed really worked for me. I had 10 mature eggs after 9 days of mild stimulation with 5 good embryos by day 5. I think you can see this as a real success for your mild strategy, and your focus on quality not quantity. My previous best cycle had about 18 mature eggs but that only led to about the same number of day 5 embryos, and that involved a freeze-all protocol to deal with the OHSS risk and nearly 8 months from start to finish for a single transfer.

Now we have all our fingers and toes crossed for a positive pregnancy test.

Thank you for your professionalism

We had a very pleasant experience from the get go, staff very accommodating. Explained everything in detail and had the same professionals assisting us from start to finish. We are pleased to say that after the first cycle of IVF we are 11 weeks pregnant! Special thanks to nurse Niki for her professionalism and for being always smiling and extremely positive!

A baby with CREATE after 10 unsuccessful cycles elsewhere

We approached Create in November 2011. This was after undergoing 10 cycles of traditional treatment at two top tier London clinics, all of which did not result in implantation. One of these clinics recommended that we give up as the clinical director believed that we had “close to zero” chance of success. The other clinic recommended that we keep going, cycle after cycle, and eventually it would work.

Hence, we were quite sceptical in our early dealings with Create, primarily due to our history.

Create described a different approach with varying levels of stimulation including a natural cycle and a modified natural cycle with some medication. The key was to focus on maximising the quality of a single egg (quality not quantity).

Create made us realise that as I had low ovarian reserve, the quality of the eggs was likely to compromised by heavy ovarian stimulation and hence reduce chances of success i.e.: traditional IVF was never going to work.

So with very low expectations, we embarked on a modified natural cycle. Scan appointments took place every few days at Harley Street. We never felt that we were on a conveyor belt as the waiting room was not over-flowing with patients unlike many other clinics, and generally appointments ran close to their scheduled time.

There were injections to administer the hormones but these were quite manageable and so much less physically and emotionally demanding.

Egg collection took place under sedation (not general anaesthetic as other clinics). We had direct contact with the doctors carrying out the procedure who were willing and available to answer our questions.

After the egg collection and embryo transfer, we were given a more medication to maximise implantation.

Throughout the process, and subsequently, we had access to the clinical team to answer our queries, however trivial.

We were lucky to have a positive pregnancy and a beautiful baby daughter born in December 2012. We would recommend the natural approach to anyone in a similar situation.

Baby

Blocked fallopian tubes – Successful Natural IVF

Claudia, 35, already had a child after aggressive, conventional IVF, and wanted another. However, because she had blocked tubes, she needed IVF. She was exhausted after her conventional IVF and said “never again”! It had been very aggressive IVF, had cost her nearly £9000 and she had lots of unpleasant side effects. She had never even heard of Natural Cycle IVF before coming to us; so two ultrasound scans, one follicle, no drugs and £2,000 resulting in another baby made her very happy!

20 weeks pregnant at 46

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.
