Starting a family can be a challenging endeavour for many individuals and couples. Be it due to medical conditions, busy schedules, or personal preferences, the path to parenthood may be more complex than one might hope. With the ever-evolving options and advancements in medical science, various fertility treatments are now accessible to cater to the diverse needs and situations of those seeking to expand their families. At Concept Fertility and Day Hospital, we understand that everyone's journey is unique, and we are here to provide the most comprehensive range of fertility services in Western Australia.

The Path to Parenthood with Assisted Reproductive Treatments

Assisted reproductive treatments have opened up new possibilities for couples facing various challenges to conceive naturally. In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a well-established method where eggs are extracted from the ovaries, fertilised with sperm in a laboratory, and then implanted into the uterus. This process is particularly helpful for couples with issues such as irregular ovulation, blocked fallopian tubes, or low sperm count. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is another advanced technique used with IVF, whereby a single sperm is carefully injected into the extracted egg. ICSI is especially beneficial for couples dealing with male infertility issues.

For FIFO workers with busy schedules, coordinating with their partner's ovulation or fertility window can be a significant challenge. Assisted reproductive treatments help streamline the conception process by providing a controlled, time-efficient method to facilitate conception. At Concept Fertility and Day Hospital, our dedicated team of experts will work closely with you to develop a personalised treatment plan that aligns with your unique circumstances and lifestyle.

Expanding Families Through Egg and Sperm Donations

Egg and sperm donations provide a life-changing opportunity for same-sex couples and single individuals who want to become parents. Donor-conceived pregnancies are facilitated with the help of fertility treatments, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or IVF. Concept Fertility and Day Hospital maintains a comprehensive egg and sperm donor program to help connect potential parents with suitable donors. We also provide counselling and support to ensure all parties involved are comfortable and well-informed about the process.

As more people become aware of the profound difference they can make by donating their eggs or sperm, there has been a growing interest among young, healthy individuals who want to assist others in starting a family. At our clinic, we ensure all potential donors are screened thoroughly for any medical conditions or genetic abnormalities to ensure the healthiest possible outcome for the future child.

Preserving Fertility Potential with Egg, Sperm AND Embryo Freezing

Egg, sperm and embryo freezing has become an increasingly popular method for preserving one's fertility potential, particularly for individuals who wish to delay parenthood due to personal or health reasons. This process involves cryopreservation, a technique where eggs, sperm or embryos are stored at an extremely low temperature, allowing them to be used later when the individual or couple decides to start a family.

Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy can significantly affect one's fertility potential. For young patients diagnosed with cancer, freezing their sperm or eggs before beginning treatment is essential in preserving their chances of becoming biological parents in the future. At Concept Fertility and Day Hospital, we collaborate with oncologists to ensure the treatment plan seamlessly integrates the preservation process.

Single women in their late 30s waiting to meet the right partner may also consider egg freezing to safeguard their chances of starting a family. With modern advancements, the success rates of pregnancies using frozen eggs have significantly improved, providing reassurance and hope for those choosing to delay parenthood.
