Changes in fertility take time. It takes 4 months for an egg to mature from a primordial egg to an egg ripe for ovulation and fertilisation. It takes sperm approximately 74 days or 2.5 months to fully mature. Any changes that take place now will see it's effects in months to come. 


A consultation involves an initial medical questionnaire about the health of the couple followed by a history and where needed, examinations. 

Investigations include parameters of overall health, hormonal health and monitoring of ovulatory menstrual cycles. It also involves targeted investigations depending on history to examine metabolic, autoimmune, immune, infective and clotting parameters. It may also involve imaging such as ultrasound.

We ensure you know when you are at your fertile peak each month, and provides you with personalised lifestyle advice regarding nutrition, exercise, stress management and sleep.

Regular follow-up is important as we journey through the investigations, cycle monitoring and lifestyle changes especially as these changes do take time to have effect on your body. Follow-up is also important for ensuring adequate stress management and emotional support.
