Clinic details: Leeds is one of the country's largest and most well-known cities. It is in fact the 30th most populous city in the UK with a population of 787,700. Leeds is known for being a beautiful city rife with financial, cultural, and commercial services that make it central to West Yorkshire. During the industrial revolution Leeds evolved into an economic and industrial centre with a big hand in diverse fields like textiles and engineering. Most of Yorkshire's rail, road, and bus transport links pass through Leeds making it the important centre that it is. The LCRM needs to tend to a large population of under a million people who lead busy lives as part of such a major city, and as such needs to have a flexible service that responds to varying patient needs quickly and efficiently. The LCRM's offerings begin with investigative services to establish the cause of infertility wherever possible. These will include a physical exam, blood tests to examine hormone levels, an ultrasound scan to examine the internal workings of your reproductive system, semen analysis for men, observation of the female menstrual cycle, laparoscopic examination of the uterus and fallopian tubes, and an x-ray of the fallopian tubes and uterus. These tests are extremely informative, and when performed and interpreted by the expert staff at the LCRM give you an excellent chance of finding out what exactly is amiss in terms of your fertility. After the results are in, your treatment options will be discussed and these can vary from simple artificial insemination to the complexities of IVF with ICSI and blastocyst transfer. Artificial insemination is provided through intrauterine insemination, an effective technique with an established track record of success, and is conducted after ovulation is induced through a carefully constructed regime of fertility drugs which give you a much better chance of a successful treatment and conception. IVF is provided by the centre as well, and can be conducted with ICSI and with blastocyst transfer, both methods which vastly increase the likelihood of a successful treatment. Surgical sperm retrieval and tubal surgery are available when necessary out of purpose built operating theatres, and the centre runs an active donor recruitment programme to ensure that donor sperm, eggs, and embryos are available for treatments when needed. The overall result? An excellent and comprehensive reproductive medical department that can cater to the needs of a large and industrious city.

Fertility treatment at this clinic: Also known as the LCRM, the Leeds Centre for Reproductive Medicine, is one of the largest facilities of its kind, with patients referred to the centre from all a large area to make use of the treatments and expertise available at the LCRM. The services offered at the LCRM aren't limited to infertility, but extend to the field of early miscarriages, an ailment which can have extremely negative psychological and emotional effects on a couple, particularly when the cause of those miscarriages are not ascertained. Over 1,000 new patients walk in through the LCRM's doors every year to receive diagnoses and treatment, comforted by the facility's HFEA license Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the recently attained ISO certification of Quality Management. LCRM remains a fairly new facility as it was formed in 2010 with the merger of two existing and reputable reproductive medical units, Clarendon Wing and Gledhow Wing from Leeds General Infirmary and St James' University Hospital. The combined efforts of both wings are concentrated at a purpose built centre at Seacroft Hospital replete with modern facilities and amenities that mean the latest technologies and skills are available for your use. Referrals come to the LCRM from GPs and specialists, and the centre can provide a complete suite of diagnostic services as well as treatments. The complexity of the human body and its fertility systems mean that any one of a number of different mechanisms or structures can be responsible for sub- or infertility, and as such the expertise and equipment available at the centre is ideal for establishing what exactly is going on. That being said an estimated third of fertility cases are from unknown causes, and in these instances a wealth of different treatment options are ideal for offering you a chance to get pregnant.
