At the Simply Fertility clinic in Essex, we have a broad spectrum of services designed to be competitive, inclusive, and above all else, successful. Regardless of your own circumstances, we believe that fertility awareness, diagnosis, and treatment should be easily accessible to everyone.

Our friendly and knowledgeable team will welcome you with open arms to our state-of-the-art facility in Great Baddow. In addition to making you feel as comfortable and confident as possible, Simply Fertility’s experienced staff are also on hand to answer any questions you may have about your fertility journey.

What to expect when visiting our fertility clinic in Essex

First and foremost, we will provide you with an assessment to determine your fertility status, which doesn’t require a GP referral. This will involve a series of simply yet thorough tests that should highlight any fertility issues you are experiencing.

From there, you can speak to one of our fertility specialists who will review your results and discuss the available options. Rest assured, we have a number of packages on offer designed to suit every individual situation.

To make the process as effortless as possible, the assessment and review take place on-site and only require two appointments. These can be arranged around your schedule for added convenience.

How treatment will work at our fertility clinic in Essex

In-Vitro Fertilisation, otherwise known as IVF, is a process that combines your sperm and eggs (or cells if using a donor) in a petri dish. This is placed in a laboratory incubator to fertilise for up to five days, after which time one or two embryos are removed and transferred to the women’s uterus. With any luck, they will implant and develop like a normal pregnancy.

Several women pursue IVF treatment because of absent or damaged fallopian tubes. It’s also a viable option for people with endometriosis, unexplained female infertility, and male infertility.

IVF treatment is most commonly used by men and women who want to start a family but have trouble conceiving naturally. However, single women and same-sex couples also go down this route.

IVF treatment protocols

  • Long Protocol IVF – This is the standard protocol for IVF and involves suppressing the patient’s hormones to take control of ovulation. Known as down-regulation, the process is supplemented by the patient taking medication called agonists. The patient will also need injections to stimulate the ovaries in the hope of producing follicles containing mature eggs.
  • Short Protocol IVF – Because Short Protocol IVF doesn’t involve the use of tablets, many patients prefer to pursue this option. However, it might not be the right method for you and will require a consultation with our fertility specialists.
  • Antagonist (mild) IVF – Another preferred option, as this protocol uses injections over a shorter period of time. It can be tailored to the individual patient and affords several advantages such as minimal discomfort, lower costs for medication, and a reduction in risk of ovarian hyperstimulation.
