Fertility Treatment Options

Different types of fertility treatment are available, dependent on the nature of your fertility problems; access to NHS treatment varies.

The fertility treatments available range from more minor procedures, including help to ovulate, to more complex and invasive treatments such as IVF or ICSI.  You may be able to access NHS treatment appropriate to your circumstances, but this varies across the country. Visit our NHS Funding section for more details of what is available and where.

As with any other medical treatment, there can be complications and side-effects to fertility treatment. These may include side-effects of the medication, a slightly higher risk of ectopic pregnancy, and a higher than normal risk of a multiple pregnancy. You should discuss all these with your consultant before going ahead with treatment.
