Your Journey

Depending on which treatment you and your Fertility Specialist have decided upon, you'll receive a personalised treatment program. It will fall into one of the four types outlined below. For each treatment description you will also find a video.

While your Nursing Team will walk you through the specific details, we know there's a lot of information to take in so we created a Patient Resource including details on your preparation and early cycle activities for your reference. 

Regardless of which treatment type you're starting, you'll need to complete this Pre-IVF Checklist:
