Clinic details: Cardiff is, in many ways, the beating heart of Wales, acting as not a commercial and cultural centre, but a popular tourist destination, administrative city, and capital city. On top of all this Cardiff also possesses a mixture of modernity and a rustic charm and aesthetic which make it such a popular destination for tourists across the country and from abroad. IVF Wales has quite a large population to tend to as the areas around Cardiff are quite populous as well, and as such can offer a broad range of treatment and investigate options to meet the needs of a diverse population and a number of communities. IVF is one of the key offerings at the centre, and is in fact offered with a surrogacy programme for same sex couples and couples in need of a surrogacy option. IVF is a great solution for women with damaged or blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained fertility problems, endometriosis (where the lining of the uterus called the endometrium grows into areas where it doesn't belong like the fallopian tubes), and problems with ovulations. ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection) is also offered with IVF, where the IVF protocol is altered in that sperm is directly injected into an egg cell a great option where male factor infertility is the problem. More specifically where sperm are either of poor quality, poor motility, or low in number, and need help in fertilising an egg. Surgical procedures are available to remove sperm from testicles where no sperm is found in after ejaculation.

Fertility treatment at this clinic: Previously known as the Cardiff Assisted Reproduction Unit CARU, IVF Wales was originally opened in 1988 and has been providing a combination of self-funded and NHS funded treatments since then. The centre bears a license from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, more commonly abbreviated as the HFEA, which means that it is regularly evaluated and reviewed to ensure that its standards and results are in line with high expectations. What IVF Wales aims to give its patients is a comprehensive service that meets your needs, emotional and medical, from start to finish. This means that you can expect IVF Wales to take you through from early consultations through to tests and investigations into what isn't quite working, and from there on to any treatments that might be deemed necessary. Both NHS funded and privately funded patients both need referrals to provide the staff at IVF Wales with the information necessary to take you through the subsequent steps of your treatment. IVF wales exercises an upper age limit of 38 for women participating in assisted reproduction treatments, and checks to make sure that the home into which a child will be born is stable. IVF Wales is distinguished from its competitors since having become the first Welsh licensed fertility clinic to receive ISO accreditation. Trained and dedicated counsellors are part of the care package provided by IVF, aiming to provide you with any emotional and mental support you need through what is always a demanding and often difficult time in your life. These counsellors are there to support you at every stage of your treatment, be it before committing to a treatment route, whilst receiving treatment, or after you have received your treatment. The HFEA has reported success rates that meet national averages for IVF and ICSI, meaning that you can be confident of the quality of the care you receive from the centre.
