Clinic details: Burton Upon Trent is a rural area in East Staffordshire, conveniently located within 30 miles of Birmingham and Derby and yet, despite being relatively near large cities, remains a picturesque and peaceful area which can be a relaxing area in which to undergo a treatment. Burton also happens to be surrounded by Nottinghamshire's world famous forests and the peak district, and is near Alton Towers and the race courses of Uttoxeter. The BCRP provides a number of fertility services out of its site, and examples include cryopreservation, a method of storing sperm and embryos for future fertility treatments and to keep donor sperm for treatments at a later date. Ultrasound scanning is a technique used on the site to monitor female cycles, either for diagnostic purposes or to observe the effects of fertility drugs that aim to stimulate egg production (ovulation). Intrauterine insemination is on offer both naturally and under the influence of drug treatments to help couples whom artificial insemination can benefit. Many women suffer from fertility difficulties because of defects or damage to their fallopian tubes, a structure linking the womb to the eggs. The BCRP offers fallopian patency testing that determines how well fallopian tubes function. The facility also offers you the opportunity to make use of donor materials where necessary, and many couples who suffer from hereditary illnesses choose to opt for donor sperm for example to avoid passing on certain illnesses to their children. IVF and ICSI, two revolutionary methods of assisted reproduction are both provided by the BCRP, as is the surgical retrieval of sperm cells. Infertility can be extremely emotionally difficult, and even its treatment can be trying for a couple as it can take some time. The BCRP is sensitive to this and offers a comprehensive counselling service for its patients to make use of.

The first step to arranging treatment at the BCRM is to speak to your GP who will refer you to the local NHS service, from then on once an appointment is made with staff at the BCRM you will first be put through a number of tests to evaluate your fertility and general health. Once your initial examination is complete semen analysis for men and a hormone profile for women, an appointment with the member of the team will be arranged and your results discussed in depth.
