WHAT I PROVIDE
Quality fertility, IVF and Gynaecological Services
Fertility tracking

We help you understand your fertility window. This involves an assessment of the different factors that make up your optimal fertile timeframe.

Ovulation tracking/induction

An option that involves the monitoring of hormones through blood tests, so you know when the best time is to have intercourse.

IVF and ICSI

In-vitro fertilisation is where we bring eggs and sperm together in a dish in our lab and develop the resulting embryos in our world leading incubation system.

Elective egg freezing

I have exclusive access to Genea’s world’s first automated vitrification instrument, Gavi® to freeze eggs and embryos.

Management of menstrual issues

Menstruation that is too heavy or too light, or the complete absence of a cycle, may suggest that there are other issues that are contributing to an abnormal menstrual cycle.

Polycystic ovary syndrome

Refers to the multiple, mini “cysts” which form on the ovaries of women who suffer from the condition. I specialise in treating PCOS and the associated fertility issues.
