At Fertility First, our fertility and IVF costs in Sydney are reasonable as we minimise expenses without comprising the chance of conceiving or quality of care.
As a Doctor-owned Medical Practice, our fertility and IVF treatment costs do not need to cover overheads and/or shareholder dividends, all of which have to come out of the income derived from patients’ treatment cycle fees at other clinics.
We are well aware of the emotional as well as financial costs associated with fertility treatment. Therefore, to ensure the chances of falling pregnant are maximised, we initially conduct a complete screen, and correction if necessary, of all nutritional and lifestyle factors known to reduce fertility. Correction of these factors not only lead to increased spontaneous pregnancy rates and reduced miscarriage rates, but also minimises the risk of having a preterm birth and a baby with reduced birth weight.
We are also the only Sydney fertility clinic that routinely screens for sperm DNA damage in all of our male patients. If increased sperm damage is detected, we have also invested in technology and a laboratory to assess directly how this damage can be best corrected. Doing so, significantly increases the likelihood of conception occurring, resulting in a simpler, easier, and less expensive treatment. In up to 30% of our cases, a natural conception can occur after addressing these factors.
