How to start your IVF journey

The first step in accessing fertility treatment is to make an appointment with your GP. It is important to remember that women’s fertility potential reduces with time. Your GP should be doing fertility tests for you if you have been trying to get pregnant for 12 months. Depending on the results, a referral to the fertility team should then be made. In some occasions, where there is a known reason why conceiving will not be possible, you may be referred before the 12 months.
