Typical journey our IVF clinic - Ongar

A typical journey at Simply Fertility looks a little like this:

  • Pre-treatment – To make the best decision about treatment, we’ll perform some preliminary tests and a screening. We can then discuss the results at an initial consultation.
  • Pre-treatment appointment (PTA) – When you are ready to commence treatment, we’ll ask you to attend a PTA to sign consent forms and talk about your programme.
  • Endometrial scratch – A minor procedure that may help with the implantation of embryos.
  • Starting treatment – Treatment will start on day 1 of your period. We ask you to call the clinic for instructions on how to start the treatment plan.
  • Ovarian stimulation and monitoring – Over a period of around 2 weeks of stimulation, administered by injections at home, you’ll have 1-3 scans and blood tests to monitor the development of the egg producing follicles.
  • Trigger injection – Once your follicles are ready, the stimulation period ends with an injection that matures the eggs.
  • Egg collection – The egg collection procedure, which lasts about half an hour, will take place 36-40 hours after the trigger injection.
  • Providing sperm – Sperm samples must be provided or thawed (if in storage) on the same day as the eggs.
  • Egg insemination – Culture dishes containing the sperm and eggs are placed in an incubator to allow for fertilisation.
  • Embryo development – Our embryologists will be in contact regularly to update you on embryo development.
  • Embryo transfer – A tiny drop of culture medium containing one or two embryos is carefully deposited in the uterus using a thin catheter.
  • The wait – Within this two-week period, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
  • The outcome – No matter the outcome, we are here to help.
