Your First Appointment Options

‘One Stop’ fertility packages are particularly suitable for those wishing to establish a diagnosis at a single consultation. Diagnostic tests can be completed quickly prior to the consultation so that you and your consultant have all the information necessary to make the right decisions. Normally, here at Concept, the doctor with whom you will be having your consultation performs your ultrasound scan him/herself. That way there is no information loss or delay waiting for a sonographer to relay your scan report to the doctor. The key test for fertility in women is to check the ovarian reserve, and for men it is a semen analysis.

Most cases of infertility can now be understood and a plan for dealing with the situation formulated. Once the evaluation is complete your fertility doctor will discuss the range of treatments available and advise what is best for you. We offer some introductory diagnostic packages with the aim of saving you time and money and as a way of guiding you through the plethora of diagnostic tests now available.

 

Initial Consultation

Price £180

If you are concerned about your fertility, but unsure about what action to take, you would benefit from an initial consultation. If you have had fertility investigations in the past or other medical history, you may wish to bring this information along, in any case we will take a detailed history. All this will be comprehensively reviewed at the consultation and you will be advised of all the options. This consultation can be enormously useful in avoiding unnecessary tests and treatments. We believe in doing the minimum to be effective and will advise you every step of the way. The initial consultation is a good way to see us for the first time.

  • Medical history review
  • Full medical consultation and plan

 

Initial Consultation & Antral Follicle Count (AFC)Ultrasound Scan

Price £295

Women who are concerned about their reproductive age, specifically the number and quality of the eggs they have remaining may wish to combine an ultrasound scan with an initial consultation where their antral follicle count (AFC) will be determined. An AFC provides one of the best estimates of ovarian reserve. In addition, the scan checks the basic physiological function of the uterus and ovaries, uterine malformation and abnormalities such as uterine fibroids, polyps and ovarian cysts.  The results of the ultrasound scan will be discussed along with all previous medical history allowing an appropriate plan for future investigation or treatment. It is our objective to provide you with the information you need in order to make the right decisions.

  • Medical history review
  • Ultrasound scan of uterine and pelvic physiology / pathology
  • Antral follicle count (AFC)
  • Full medical consultation and plan

 

Comprehensive Fertility Investigation for Couples

Price £415

This is the same as the Consultation and AFC with the addition of a Semen Analysis. It is ideal for the couple who have not had previous fertility investigations and are wondering whether any kind of fertility treatment might be appropriate. We arrange a semen analysis with our embryologists first as it takes several hours to analyse, and we arrange an ultrasound scan at the right time in your cycle.  Our Fertility Consultants perform your ultrasound scan themselves and then you have your consultation immediately afterwards. This means that your valuable consultation time can be spent discussing the actual situation and formulating a plan.

  • Medical history review
  • Semen Analysis
  • Ultrasound scan of uterine and pelvic physiology/ pathology
  • Antral follicle count (AFC)
  • Full consultation & plan

 

Initial Consultation and Fallopian Tube Patency Test (HyCoSy)

Price £555

This is the same as the Consultation and AFC with the addition of a HyCoSy. It is designed for women who have concerns arising from previous pelvic infection or chlamydia as these are likely to affect fallopian tube function and patency, or for women who simply wish to know if their tubes are patent. The fallopian tubes help in the transport of sperm, eggs and embryos beside aiding the process of fertilisation and early development of the embryo. A dye is passed through the fallopian tube under ultrasound guidance and each of the fallopian tubes is assessed for adhesions and blockages etc. The technique is called Hysterosalpingo-Contrast Sonography (HyCoSy). This is followed by a full discussion of the results and the wider implications for fertility and fertility treatment.

  • Medical history review
  • Ultrasound scan of uterine and pelvic physiology / pathology
  • Antral Follicle Count
  • Fallopian tube patency test (HyCoSy)
