Exeter is one of the most historic cities in the South of England, and certainly in its county of Devon. It is the seat of the county's Council, and is a hub for many activities in the region. The city sits on the river Exe and is within easy reach of Plymouth to the South and Bristol to the Northeast. Exeter is steeped in Roman history as the city was originally a southern fortification for the Roman Empire. Exeter is also known for a distinctive and stunning cathedral which dates back to the early 1100s. Because of its location and many attractions, the city has been amongst the top ten most profitable sites for business, and continues to thrive on the basis of many commercial and other endeavours. The PCRM provides its services to private and NHS patients who are up to 44 years of age. The BMI limit for treatments at the centre is between the 19-30 range, and NHS funding limitations do apply to the number of treatment cycles you can receive on the NHS. Amongst the treatments offered, the use of artificial insemination is possibly the most straightforward as it involves obtaining a sperm sample (either from a donor or a male partner depending on the particular situation in question) and using said sample to fertilise a female egg by placing it into the female reproductive tract (in the womb in this case). In vitro fertilisation and the many benefits of its sister procedure intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection are provided to patients who can benefit from it. IVF and ICSI both involve fertilising an egg outside of the body and within a lab, where a team of specialist scientists are involved in ensuring that eggs are fertilised by keeping them in healthy conditions. In IVF sperm are just incubated with eggs and left to their own devices, however ICSI takes a more direct approach and injects a sperm into an egg to get it fertilised. Mild IVF is offered where appropriate, which means that a very low dose of fertility drugs is used to stimulate egg production and release prior to the treatment. While both methods have their uses, mild IVF tends to be preferable where it works because of the lower risk of side effects. Fertility drugs can be used for insemination treatments as well. ICSI and IVF are also offered with donor sperm and eggs should the need arise, and both procedures are performed using the extremely successful blastocyst transfer method. The method essentially involves leaving an embryo for up to 5 days, until it has reached the blastocyst stage, before transferring it to the mother's womb for implantation. This technique has been known to be especially effective when one embryo is being transferred as it has a much higher chance of implantation. These treatments are all provided with the utmost professionalism and dedication at the centre, so you can expect great care.
