WE TAKE FERTILITY VERY SERIOUSLY
Fertility First is accredited by NATA and RTAC. We are also a recognised Donor Sperm Bank under NSW legislation.
WE LOOK AT ALL OPTIONS
How are we different? Unlike others, we explore all treatment options before considering IVF. Through simple modifications and calculating pregnancy opportunities within a woman's cycle, the chances of falling pregnant are increased.
WE UNDERSTAND IT TAKES TWO
We are the only fertility clinic that routinely screens for sperm DNA damage in all of our male patients. Treating sperm damage significantly increases the likelihood of conception occurring, resulting in a simpler, easier, and less expensive treatment.
WE KEEP IT AFFORDABLE
We minimise costs where possible without compromising the chance of conceiving or quality of care. In addition, as we conduct a thorough review often the correction of certain elements increases the chance of conceiving without having to undertake more costly procedures.
1 in 6 couples have difficulty falling pregnant. Our vision is to transform what we know about our biology and reshape the conversation around infertility.

The latest tweets direct from the ESHRE conference in Switzerland, revealing how embryology and IVF will change this year.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
Eggs are collected from the ovaries then placed with sperm in the laboratory (“in vitro” is Latin for “in glass”) so that fertilisation can occur. It is important to remember that IVF is essentially an ‘Introduction Agency’ that maximises the opportunities for the egg and sperm to get together.
Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
This is a technique to assist fertilisation of an egg. A single sperm is injected into each egg using a microscopic technique. As the fertilisation occurs outside the woman’s body it is another form of IVF. This technique is used when it is unlikely that sperm can penetrate the coating of the egg (the zona pellucida) on their own.
Artificial Insemination Using Partner’s Sperm (IUI)
This is a treatment that combines a small amount of ovarian stimulation, to maximise the maturity of the egg and the lining of the uterus, with intrauterine insemination of the best of the sperm from a man’s ejaculate. It is suitable for couples with unexplained infertility or minor semen problems provided the woman’s fallopian tubes are normal.
Embryo Freezing & Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
This is a technique for couples who produce more embryos during an IVF cycle than are required for their initial transfer. The remaining embryos, if sufficiently healthy to survive the freeze-thaw process, can be frozen at and safely stored for many years.
