Do you have a female doctor I can see?
What options do you have regarding sperm, egg and embryo donors?
At Family Fertility Centre we recognise that one size does not fit all, and we aim to be able to provide donor options that meet each patient’s needs, wishes and price ranges. We are proud of the variety and quality of donor sperm we are able to offer, including donors recruited in Adelaide, America and options to directly import sperm from a list of donors. Visit our Donor Options link for more information.
What treatment options do you offer?
At FFC, we pride ourselves on offering you the most appropriate treatment options available and wanted by you, not the most expensive one. We individualize your treatment by listening to your preferences and presenting you with options. Together, the best treatment option for you is decided and you may be surprised to know that the cast majority of our patients do not start with IVF/ICSI.
We offer ovulation tracking, ovulation induction, sperm donor programs, IVF, ICSI, intrauterine insemination (IUI), sperm suitability assessment for artificial reproductive technology, surgical sperm recover (TESA/PESA), assisted hatching, embryo biopsy, preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A) and single gene disorders (PGT-M), freezing and storage of sperm, eggs and embryos, access to “Life Whisperer”, surrogacy, sterilization reversal, and diagnosis and treatment of PCOS and endometriosis.

What is IVF?
In Vitro Fertilisation is the process of helping people fall pregnant after other means have been exhausted or not clinically indicated. Almost 1 in 20 babies in Australia are born through IVF.
After a series of injections, eggs are recovered and are combined with sperm outside of the body (in vitro) to aid fertilisation. Fertilised eggs are grown in a protected environment in a lab for several days before being transferred into the woman’s uterus, or frozen for future cycles. IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology, and can be done with you and your partners own eggs/sperm, or with our donors. We are happy to discuss your options with you, and create a customised treatment plan specifically suited to your needs and medical requirements.

Why can’t I fall pregnant?
What is OHSS?
Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS) is a potential complication of IVF treatment, but may also occur after other types of treatment, or rarely in a natural cycle. IVF is essentially hyper-stimulating the ovaries to develop 8-15 eggs, rather than one occurring in a non stimulated cycle, so mild symptoms are to be expected. OHSS usually resolves after 7-10 days, but at FFC, we are focused on preventing OHSS. Speak with our nurses for more information on how we monitor and prevent OHSS.
What is PCOS?
What is Life Whisperer?
Life Whisperer is an artificial intelligence tool to aid embryologists identify and select the most viable embryo for transfer and/or cryopreservation. Life Whisperer identifies morphological features and patterns that constitute a healthy embryo, which are often not visible to the human eye. Our experienced embryologist will grade and take a photo of your day 5 embryo/s, and if you choose, will upload to the Life Whisperer program. Within a few minutes, a score is given depicting the viability of each embryo.
