IVF Add-Ons – Are they worth the expense?

Many couples turn to IVF in pursuit of creating a family. These couples put their absolutely trust in their clinic and doctor to provide them with the most up to date and research based treatments and investigations. However there is increasing concern that many of the additional treatments and services offered by fertility clinics in the UK are not research based and are therefore misleading patients, increasing their financial burden and ultimately offering little more than false hope.

Male Infertility – Abnormal Sperm Tests

Male infertility accounts for almost half of infertility problems experienced by couples. However, men are more likely than women to feel embarrassed about their fertility problems and consequently find it difficult to get advice or talk to their doctor. It’s important to remember that men are half the fertility equation and therefore they experience the pain and grief of struggling to become a parent too.

Christine’s story

Hi, my doctor rang to confirm that I’m ovulating 🙂  😛  I’m so happy. Xx

OvuSense got my ovulation date exactly right!   I think my period is on it’s way however, I’m pleased that I had my bloods done as I can see a difference in the temperatures between last month (1st month using OvuSense) and this month.

This month’s temperatures are noticeably higher 😛 xx

Catherine’s story

Before using OvuSense, I had three progesterone blood test that said I wasn’t ovulating; they were always done at mid-point of my normal 28 day cycle.  I was being recommended to do a ‘super ovulation’ drug plan as a result!  

This cycle, I pushed for one more blood test and had it done seven days after OvuSense confirmed my ovulation date.  The blood test confirmed a high enough result of progesterone to confirm ovulation took place, just like OvuSense said.  It gave me some peace of mind back!

I am 100% confident in the technology of OvuSense! 

Best of luck to everyone trying.
