Fertility and conception articles by Dr David Wilkinson
After all you have been through to try to achieve a pregnancy, there is finally the two-week waiting phase until your pregnancy test, to stretch your patience once more!
During Fertility Week (September 3-9), City Fertility Centre specialist Dr David Wilkinson is keen to raise community awareness of the key factors that impact on fertility.
There are two main reasons that someone would want to test their egg reserve, firstly to test their fertility status and secondly to test their response to fertility medication.
For many reasons, egg freezing can potentially be helpful for a variety of women. These include women who may wish to try to have children at a later date, or genetic factors, or chemotherapy patients.
Women are different in many ways, whether it be their height, their eye colour, what they believe in or even the type of menstrual cycle they experience.
Our statistics show that only about 20 to 30 per cent of our patients who see our fertility specialists actually go on to IVF treatment.
