Clinic details: London is home to a number of internationally renowned institutions, amongst whom UCL, or the University College London, is ranked very highly. UCL lies within the heart of the city, with a number of smaller sites dotted around the extremely busy centre of town. UCL is also closely affiliated with a Foundation Trust of that name, which makes use of the steady influx of research and young scientists and doctors to ensure the provision of impeccable care for NHS patients. In 2009 the unit performed 487 cycles of intrauterine insemination (IUI) as well as 21 cycles of donor insemination. NHS patients up to 44 years of age are treated with a refined and advanced artificial insemination treatment that can make use of either donor or partner sperm, depending on your individual situation and how you may benefit. Intrauterine insemination is a popular choice of treatment for many patients, and is effective if the causes of infertility are either unknown or stem from impotence or retrograde ejaculation for instance. Other treatments include reproductive surgery, more specifically tubal surgery, which can restore fertility if the cause is any kind of disruption to the normal function of the fallopian tubes, which are responsible for transporting eggs from their storage place within the ovaries to the womb where they can be fertilised. Similarly reproductive endocrinology is offered as a treatment, and this treatment route essentially involves using drugs to alter a woman's natural monthly cycle, thereby encouraging ovulation which releases more eggs to be fertilised. This method can also be used to enhance the effectiveness of IUI treatments, increasing the chances of a successful cycle as there are more eggs to be fertilised. One of the investigative routes explored by the Reproductive Medicine Unit is semen analysis, which involves looking into the quality of sperm and their ability to access and fertilise an egg. The unit can also provide treatments and investigations into recurrent miscarriages, a difficult ordeal to go through for any couple. One of the services offered by the Reproductive Medicine Unit is the provision of storage facilities for sperm, eggs, and embryos, a facility of great importance to cancer patients about to go through chemotherapy, a treatment which can potentially cause infertility.
