Trying to conceive again

We often see couples who after conceiving easily have concerns with their second or third baby.

Couples can be trying for 6 months, then 8, and before they know it, can find that a year has passed before they know it.

Age can be a major factor the second time around.  By the time you wait until the first born is 2 or 3 years old the biological clock has also passed another few years. 

On a positive note, by experiencing a pregnancy previously, there is less likelihood that the delay will be due to a pre-existing condition, which does give you a good chance with fertility treatments.
 

Our dedicated team of experienced doctors and scientists deliver world leading fertility treatments and personalised care. To give you the best chance towards starting a family.
 

Understanding your fertility

The sooner you understand your own chances, including age and length of time trying, the closer you are to achieving a healthy baby. Timing can be everything and just knowing your own cycle and when to try can be very helpful. Age can also be a major factor for those experiencing secondary infertility.

 

Treatment options

Ovulation Induction (OI)

Clomiphene Citrate was the original ‘fertility pill’, and it is still widely used. It’s the most 'natural’ scientifically proven fertility treatment – no injections, and you still have sex to become pregnant. We now also use medication called Letrozole. More

Intra uterine Insemination (IUI)

As the name suggests, intra uterine insemination involves preparing sperm in the lab, then putting the best sperm directly into the uterus in a procedure that’s a bit like having a cervical smear.More
 

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)

IVF depends on well-controlled conditions to give eggs and sperm the highest chance of getting together to create a pregnancy. More


At your first appointment

At your first appointment you will meet your doctor, they will go through your medical history, answer any questions you may have and undertake tests and scans. It is useful to bring your partner along to your first consultation, as fertility is made up of 50% female and 50% male factors.

At this appointment you will get an understanding of your own situation, and options available. Some couples may need to try a little longer, others may start medication to assist with ovulation, and others may need to commence treatment as soon as possible. Whatever the situation our team of fertility specialists are here to help – and if you have any questions along the way we also have a great resource of our Pathways booklet. Pathways outlines every step of fertility treatment, should you need it.
